In the scorching sequel to The Playa’s Handbook, No More Playas, author Brenda Jackson gives relationship expert Lance Montgomery a second chance at love.

Afraid of his own feelings, master playa Lance Montgomery lets the only woman he ever loved, Dr. Asia Fowler, walk out of his life and into the arms of another man. Now Asia is engaged to be married, and Lance is tormented by a pain greater than any he has ever known. There is only one cure for his pain, and that is Asia Fowler herself. In his attempts to get her back, Lance will use every resource available, and even he is not sure, that it will be enough.

As Lance works to reconnect with his soul mate, there is trouble in the Montgomery clan. His sister Carrie is being blackmailed by a cruel and vicious person who will stop at nothing to make a profit off Carrie’s pain. Rather than hurt her family by going to them for help, Carrie hires private investigator Connor Hargrove to assist her in locating the blackmailer. Not only will Connor help Carrie discover the truth, but he will also be the one man who can make her face her own fears and learn to live again.

Few writers can captivate with each novel. Brenda Jackson is one who can. No More Playas is a splendid example of Jackson’s ability to craft a mesmerizing story line centered on winning multi-dimensional characters.

After reading The Playa’s Handbook, fans were undoubtedly saddened to learn that Lance and Asia were not destined to be together. Luckily, Jackson has responded to their cries with her latest work. Not only are Lance and Asia given a second chance, but readers are also gifted with Carrie’s story and more of the Montgomery family history.

No More Playas is one of those novels that begs to be read. The engaging tale spins a pleasing web of seduction on each page, ensnaring the reader in a most desirable net of love and suspense.

For those out there who thought The Playa’s Handbook was the perfect novel, and that perfect was as good as it gets. Brenda Jackson has proven you wrong with No More Playas; it redefines perfection.
