Book Description

Letting go is not always easy, and in some cases it can be close to impossible, like it was for Leila. She was stuck on her husband, and never thought she would ever stop loving him; even through the constant pain and suffering, she still had hopes that he d come back to her. Cold and unwilling to do right, her husband, Devon did what was best for him, and that was treat Leila horribly and lie to her time after time, leaving her no choice but to be rescued by another man. Rayshon Johnson, not the perfect man - but a good man - came along, and rolled the storm away and gave Leila back all the things that Devon took away. He kissed her where it hurt, and helped her to get over her insecurities about herself. By giving her back that confidence, she let go, and letting go was the wrong answer for Devon, and he refused to let her move on without him. He was determined to get his good thing back - no matter what the cost, he was determined to come back.

Editorial Reviews


Anna Black did a great job on her first novel. The characters were excellent and the story itself was exceptionally good. I am looking forward to reading her next book. --OOSA

Anna Black delivers humor, drama and most importantly a relatable storyline in her debut novel "Now You Wanna Come Back". The author captured my attention within the first chapter. --Driven Divas Book Club

Opening up Now you wanna come back instantly started off a s a great read. The title alone was what pulled me in and allowed em to believe that this was going to be a awesome book. Well, I got more then what I thought I did. The book did not have a dull moment. It flowed and was written so well, and I absolutely loved the fact that the main character Lelia was a full figured sista. Imagine being in love with a husband who left you but kept coming back for some booty calls. Then imagine finding Mr. Right who looks like God designed him perfectly. That is what happened with Leila and the love spirals from there. But Leila's husband now wants to come back. You want believe who she chooses and how this book ends./ Anna Black is absolutely one of the authors to watch her books are different and not only that she caters to the most common woman around, a sista with some curves. --Tamika newhouse, AAMBC Reviewer

3.0 out of 5 stars NOW...You Wanna Come Back? September 21, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
NOW YOU WANNA COME BACK by Anna Black is a story of Leila. When Leila first told her husband, Devon. that she was pregnant and expecting their first baby, Devon was ecstatic. That excitement soon wears off as the months progress and Leila steadily gains weight. In Devon's eyes, Leila is less attractive. Devon is verbally abusive, making reference to the weight that Leila has gained. It does not do much for Leila's self-esteem either --when she finds out that Devon has been having an affair with a much thinner woman.

Leila has put her all into her marriage with Devon. The pain that she feels by his betrayal and the loss of her marriage leaves Leila sad and depressed. That is until she meets the handsome Rayshawn Johnson. Although Rayshawn is like a breath of fresh air, Leila's insecurities leaves her wondering if Rayshawn is genuine. Just when Leila finds herself and new confidence, Devon realizes that Leila is a good woman and all the other stuff he thought he wanted, he no longer wants. Will Leila give their marriage another shot? Or will she decide move on with someone new?

NOW YOU WANNA COME BACK by Anna Black was a good read. It puts you in mind of that saying "What is one man's trash is another man's treasure." So when a man decides (for whatever reason) he does not want a woman and she slowly puts the pieces to her life back together and begins to move on...then... he decides, that she... really was the treasure! The title alone gives the story away, leaving for a predicable read. All-in-all it was a well-written story.

This was a great book, I couldn't put it down, drama from beginning to end it never slowed down. I can't wait to read Anna's next book I hope it's just as good as this one. Keep them coming Anna.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Read! August 30, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sweet read! I don't know....something about it was just..."sweet". Maybe it was Rayshon Johnson and his quiet pursuit of Leila. Or maybe it was Devon when he realized, like most men do what he lost. Honestly, I'm not real sure...but whatever it is, I enjoyed it. I appreciate this author's casual description of the sexual interludes. It's not overly described or distasteful. Instead it's just the right balance that a love story needs! Way to go Anna! I thoroughly enjoyed it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Really? August 8, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Was I the only one that didn't care for this book?. It was worth the 99 cents I paid for it on Kindle. I admit it was an easy read, but it was very predictable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Same ol' Same ol' January 8, 2012
By L'daj
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book was way too predictable for me and I found myself actually correcting the author's work as I read it. It was a really frustrating read for me. The plot was very similar to that of Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married play and movie. A woman meets a man, falls deeply in love, makes him her world, then he wants nothing to do with her as she puts on weight. The same woman, meets another guy who is taken by her and wants to help her be healthy, but she won't give him the time of day. Blah, blah, blah. She ends up with the man who has taken a genuine interest in her health, mind, and body. Same story, different title.

5.0 out of 5 stars A REFRESHING CHANGE FROM THE HOOD LIFE BOOKS! April 12, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I loved it from the first chapter! a refreshing change from the ghetto, drug dealer books. I was starting to think black authors didn't write about anything else. This book has plenty of drama to keep you interested and into the book, but its everyday drama, the sort of things we go thru in our marriages, relationships. Glad to see black people doing positive thIngs! Thanks Ms. Black for realizing we want to read about something more then the hood lol!

I did not like either of the men in this book. One was weak and one was an idiot. The good guy was not gulliable and the bad guy was nasty.
