Charisse Tyson seems to have it all—a great job, a dream car, and a McMansion in high-and-mightyville. Everything in her life is just right . . . except the Mister. While lamenting the break-up with her most recent “the one” during a holiday meltdown, Charisse realizes she has a type when it comes to men—players, players, and more players. A magazine article motivates her to swear-off men and examine the complex roots of her romantic fiascos.

Just five simple steps to transform Charisse’s love life to the stuff of legends, right? Life is never that easy.

She commences her D-I-Y therapy and barely cracks open her emotional toolbox when she encounters the monkey wrenches: a sexy new beau, two persistent ex-flames, and an FBI agent with life-altering secrets threatening to turn her world upside-down. A tug of war ensues with Charisse dead center, creating confusion as she attempts to distinguish the Don Juans from the Romeos. Her love life is propelled into unpredictable twists not even she could imagine, but will a twenty-seven-year-old secret keep Charisse from finding the right “one”?

Laugh loud and often as Charisse discovers whether her choices in men reflect more than a penchant for good looks, great sex, and bad judgment
