Storyline

This romance story focuses on Fox Giovanni (V.Dillard) who is a hardworking; overly competitive stockbroker who thinks money is the most important thing in life. Her health suffers from that and she ends up having to take time off and spend time away from the hustle and bustle of New York City. She heads south to reconnect with her estranged foster mother, finds out something about family and true love. She ends up falling in love with Van (A. Payne). It's really a good love story about two people who really don't want to be in love, but it's kind of forced on them. It's a situation that neither one of them want to have that experience of being vulnerable or in love. Written by <deidrafryer@yahoo.com>

amazing
24 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is so awesome. It's an enjoyable romance with relatable characters that made it easy for me to get into the story. There were even random bits of comedy, so it's enjoyable for both men and women. The book is even better. Carmen Green is an amazing writer. Victoria Dillard is an amazing actress, and she did a wonderful job portraying such a complex character. I recommend this movie to anyone. However, it may not be appropriate for children. The special features on the DVD are really great as well. BET did a wonderful job casting the characters in the film, and an even better job of picking out just the right scenes from the novel to include in the movie. Go see it.
