May December Souls

Things are good, not great, for Mariah Pijeaux. Tall and striking, with a honeysuckle complexion and a funky hairdo, she's the mother of three and about to turn the big 4-0. Her dream of becoming a broadcast journalist is still just a dream, as she works as a temporary assistant in Hollywood to make ends meet. And though physically addicted to her charismatic and skillfully manipulative ex-pro hoops player boyfriend, Mariah yearns for a relationship that's less oppressive and more emotionally satisfying. And then she meets Malik Tolliver. The epitome of the tall, dark, and handsome stranger -- who just happens to be twenty-one years old -- he could be the answer Mariah has been desperately seeking in magazines and relationship seminars. But loving this remarkable young man will take much soul-searching and life-altering, as Mariah abandons all efforts to resist Malik's charm, and prays that this one will be different.
