What happens when a fifteen-year-old secret between three best friends is exposed?

Celeste Harper seems to be happily married and living life to its fullest. That's what she wants everyone to believe, but her failure to conceive a baby and the critical information she is withholding from her husband may demolish her house of cards.

Ginger Brown meets a guy online and invites him to stay in her home. It isn't long before she finds herself having to ask for permission to go to church. Dirty dishes left in the sink, canned goods not neatly stacked, and missing curfew by just one minute earns Ginger a beat down on a regular basis. How long will the makeup hide the bruises?

Portia Dunn is single and fancy free, but she has a dangerous taste for married men. She enjoys collecting money for her rent, car note, and bills. When a wife takes notice of mishandled funds and takes over the checkbook, Portia's free ride is over. Now faced with having to support her own shopping addiction, Portia puts a plan in motion to make it too easy for the Mrs. to learn of her husband's adulterous affair.

These three women have shared an unbreakable bond since high school. They've also vowed to never make mention of what occurred in a dark, dingy basement during their junior year. When a heated fellowship between them develops into an all-out brawl with name calling, the very subject they've sworn to keep buried suddenly emerges. The Damsels turn on each other, and war is declared.



Baker & Taylor
Three friends, each with their own issues, share a dark secret since high school, but when a fight starts between them, the secret is revealed and all-out war is declared.

This was the second book that I've have read from Nikita Lynnette Harper. In it she tells the story of three black women who goes through different struggles in their individual lives and with each other. It also gave me a glimpse into how women are so fickle, how they get mad over the silly stuff and hold a grudge. It also show the men in this book on how some men do have character and they know how to treat a woman like the lady that she is.
