Gorgeous, smart, and fat, Whitney has had lifelong struggle with her weight. With an equally skinny and critical mother and sister, it has taken everything that she has to maintain a modicum of self-esteem. But one day--with another decision made to diet and exercise and lose weight--Whitney meets the delectable Rico in the health club. At first Whitney refuses his advances...how can someone like Rico be attracted to a fattie like her? But Rico is relentless, and after several days of mindblowing sex and constant attention, Whitney lets her defenses down and allows love in....so why is something telling her that it may blow up in her face after all?
Charisse is losing control; at home, at church, and with her friends. After years of dominating and controlling her submissive husband Marvin and their children, Marvin has decided that he has had enough. He will do what he wants and when he wants to...and only on his terms. Charisse is shocked and outraged, and turns to her pastor for help...after all, what is a decent, God-fearing woman to do when her husband has lost his mind? Pastor Damon has certainly proven himself good for the soul...and the body. Charisse has declared war on Whitney, Marvin, and her Mama; the latter for being hateful and abusive and raising her to be the same way. One final confrontation with mother Mattie has Charisse facing the biggest challenge of her life....Read more ›
Whitney is a beautiful, professional woman who struggles with her weight. She has tried just about every diet that exists, but each attempt has ended in failure. She admits to being a compulsive overeater, but it doesn't help that her thin mother and sister are unsupportive and never offer an encouraging word. Whitney simply wants someone to love her for her. That someone may just be Rico, the gorgeous man she meets at the local gym, who is not bothered by her size, but is willing to help her goal of shedding pounds before her class reunion.
Taylor is a great attorney who's been dating Cameron for two years and still has not received the marriage proposal that she's been waiting for. Cameron continues to ask for Taylor's patience as he tries to get his architecture business off the ground. However, as Taylor experiences a medical scare, she re-evaluates her life and her patience may have just run out, especially when she sees that Cameron is not as attentive as he should be.
Charisse is probably the most flawed character of the three. She claims to be a devout Christian, but she's got many skeletons in her closet. Normally, she is vocal, opinionated and very much in control of every facet of her life. She even runs her husband as if he's a trained puppy.Read more ›
I really enjoyed CHANGING FACES. The strength of the novel is not only in the dialogue, but in the message. Kimberla Lawson Roby presents a realistic look into the lives of characters the reader can relate to, understand, and applaud when they do the right thing. In addition, she also makes it apparent that people have flaws and sometimes deep-rooted issues that cause them to act in a way that could be detrimental to those around them, despite their need to keep up appearances. With surprising twists, colorful characters, and an unexpected ending, Roby rounds out the book with messages centering on the importance of relationships with family and friends.
