 New York Times bestselling author Eric Jerome Dickey, whose characters The Atlantic calls 'bold, smart women oozing sexuality and vulnerability' introduces an unbreakable quartet of friends looking for love in his next delectable romance.
They call themselves the Blackbirds. Kwanzaa Browne, Indigo Abdulrahaman, Destiny Jones, and Ericka Stockwell are four best friends who are closer than sisters, and will go to the ends of the earth for one another. Yet even their deep bond can’t heal all wounds from their individual pasts, as the collegiate and post-collegiate women struggle with their own demons, drama, and desires.
Trying to forget her cheating ex-fiancé, Kwanzaa becomes entangled with a wicked one-night stand—a man who turns out to be one in five million. Indigo is in an endless on-again, off-again relationship with her footballer boyfriend, and in her time between dysfunctional relationships she purses other naughty desires. Destiny, readjusting to normal life, struggles to control her own anger after avenging a deep wrong landed her in juvi, while at the same time trying to have her first real relationship—one she has initiated using an alias to hide her past from her lover. Divorced Ericka is in remission from cancer and trying to deal with two decades of animosity with her radical mother, while keeping the desperate crush she has always had on Destiny’s father a secret... a passion with an older man that just may be reciprocated. 
As the women try to overcome— or give into— their impulses, they find not only themselves tested, but the one thing they always considered indestructible: their friendship.

I mean I wouldn't expect anything less from Eric Jerome Dickey. Sex, friendships, drama, overcoming obstacles, love, failed relationships and soooo much more. The friendships of the 4 girls (the blackbirds) are what every woman needs. The way they uplifted one another after every event, was heartwarming. This story resonated with me because it reminds me of myself and my girlfriends, dealing with Cancer, breakups, parent relationships and the men. #Book24of2020 #bookworm #whatsnext

Not an easy story line to follow. Too many character changes throughout and not captivating enough to hold my attention.

A classic Eric Jerome Dickey novel! If you are a fan of his earlier books, you will definitely love this one. It was long, but I did not want it to end. The characters were so descriptive, you will feel as if you've known them forever.
