summary from Goodreads:

Shy, awkward Sophia Cruz has a hard time telling her vivacious identical twin “no.” But when her sister begs her to swap places for a modeling shoot, she caves … again. Then Zephirin Black walks onto the set. The brooding, aloof, and gorgeous tight end for the Washington Warriors. But she can keep it professional… She has to. Because the adorkable Cruz twin has no luck with guys once they compare her to her sister.

After a bad break-up, Zeph hasn’t been big on second chances—and even less with trust. But he finds himself giving please-call-me-by-my-middle-name-Sophia both. The woman he’d dismissed as a spoiled cover model is different from the first time he met her. Quirkier. Funnier. Definitely sexier. What started as one night turns into another…and another…and another…

Still, Sophia can’t go on keeping her secret from him. But telling Zeph the truth will mean losing him for good.

Sheree, the outspoken teacher. Shaina, the unhappily married housewife and mother. Morgan, the career-driven attorney. Maven, the bonafide hood girl turned business owner. Best friends for over two decades.

Every Friday night you can find Sheree, Shaina, Morgan, and Maven sitting at their reserved VIP table at Rico’s, the most popular thirty plus lounge in the city. The girls enjoy exquisite cuisine and specialized cocktails while dishing about life, love, and relationships.

There’s usually no room for secrets among these friends because they’ve shared everything: the good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright scandalous and illegal. But that is all about to change.

Life has a way of bringing trouble right to your front door, and that is exactly what happens to these women. The past comes out to play and wreaks havoc on the present. Old flames burn out, new ones ignite, and everyone gets burned in the process.

When secrets and lies threaten the bond between these friends, will the loyalty and the love they have for each other be enough to see them through? Or will the reservation at Rico’s be put on hold forever?
