Whatever Lola Wants

Niqui Stanhope

St. Martin's Paperbacks

In this heartwarming story from African-American fiction writer Niqui Stanhope, an "ugly duckling" transforms herself to take down the boy that broke her heart.  But she didn’t count on falling in love again…

As an awkward teenager, Sadie St. James never exactly turned heads. Then she blossomed into a total fox with a sleek look and a sexy new name: Lola. Successful and confident, Lola has men falling for her left and right, but she never forgot the boy who broke her heart years ago. When she learns he's back in town, Lola vows to find him, seduce him-and then leave him flat...

After a knee injury ends his NFL career, Chaz Kelly goes home to Washington D.C. and starts a landscaping business. When he's hired by one Lola St. James, he doesn't recognize the name or the face. Lola puts the moves on Chaz so fast, she makes his head spin. Things go from hot to scorching in record time. But Lola hasn't even gotten started yet...

Once she starts tangling with Chaz, Lola wonders if she can go through with her big plan. Chaz is still the sweet, gentle man she remembers, and she's falling for him all over again. Maybe, just maybe, Lola is ready to tame her wild ways-especially for a man worth taming them for...
