Women just love men. Some like 'em tall, others like 'em buff; some women even like 'em chubby. Zora Nedham, a young, successful, and sophisticated woman likes them anyway she can get them--as long as they're not liars, players...LOSERS. But luck in finding a man, with no loser priors, is starting to become slim-to-impossible for Zora. As she and her friends set out on a mission to find a suitable man, each embarks on their own journey of priorities and self-discovery. Donisha, a former stripper, is one of Zora's best friends. Life hasn't been particularly easy for her and she's had her share of pain. Growing up as the youngest child of "The Great" Bishop Raines was difficult at times putting her in an adult mind frame of constantly regretting that she hadn't been able to make Daddy proud. With the recent attention of a man of the cloth feeling her, which she can hardly believe, Donisha begins a pilgrimage of self-enlightenment, personification of love for herself and her children, and the ultimate goal of making her late father proud. When drama, in the form of a video, threatens her new found faith in God and in love, Donisha has to make a heartbreaking decision that could possibly push her over the edge. Chelle is the smart and savvy law student who grew up privileged and alone while her parents dove into their careers. She has finally had it with her latest thugged-out boyfriend and his dramatic baby momma. When she tries to leave the relationship with a bang of information, she finds herself in a situation where she will either pay for the consequences or cherish them for the rest of her life. Each of the women has to fight her own battle of love, yet they must all wrestle with determining whether or not the men in their lives are losers or lovers; real or fake. As the truth slowly reveals itself to each of them, they start to realize what love and relationships are really made of. But will their realization come soon enough? In Love with Losers is unique in that it offers a positive perspective about common African American struggles. It's not about drugs and violence, but trust, love and forgiveness. In the spirit of great African American writers, LaToya S. Watkins weaves history and culture into the fabric of the lives of these women on their journey to self-awareness.
