Aliesha is a dark-skinned beauty who seemingly has it all--a prestigious academic job, a respected role at church, and an adoring boyfriend. All she thinks she needs when she lands in Dante's barber's chair is someone capable of handling her natural, unchemically-treated hair. But her encounter with the handsome barber forces her to confront what's been missing from her life all along.
...But Is He Mr. Right?
Dante is a laid-back brother who isn't easily rattled. But everything about Aliesha--from her big-city attitude to her wild, defiant hair--begs his attention. His offer to work his magic on her hair sends both of their worlds into a tailspin. But does Dante really have what it takes to finish what he's started?
