Girls Just Don’t Do That by Natalie Simone is one of those books that grabbed me the first page. Published in 2009, the college-themed love story is filled with characters that I would have hung out with in my 20s (and probably did). Simone also nailed the stud/femme dynamic to a tee. (Read the Sistahs on the Shelf review of Girls.)
In 2014, Girls Just Don’t Do That has gotten a facelift, and is now the first book in the newly-minted CRAVE trilogy. Three Degrees of Separation, the second book,will be available in May, featuring a now out-of-college Jayne and a new circle of women.
In anticipation of her newest book in the CRAVE trilogy, Natalie Simone would like to bestow 5 lucky winners an autographed copy of her book, Girls Just Don’t Do That! To enter, please fill out the form below.
When I look in the mirror I see a mother, daughter, sister, aunt & friend. I see a professional woman who enjoys educating and advocating for children. I see a woman who has loved, been loved, lost love and still believes that there is someone out there who is THAT ONE and is waiting for me. There are times when I look in the mirror blink and look away, I see a woman who once believed she had been broken. But, when I look back again, I see a woman who understands that life’s adversities have made her stronger and continue to build her into someone of greatness. A role model for the young ladies following in her footsteps. That mirror reveals a woman of depth and strength, built upon the highs, lows on the back of this thing called Life. I’m not skinny or built to a supermodel’s size. I have curvy hips and thick thighs. And when I turn to the side there’s a pronounced fullness to my backside. My eyes glisten, my hair shines. My lips beckon others with sweet, sultry smiles. Don’t look into my eyes unless you want to be mesmerized. Yes, I have a tremendous view of my fantastic self. But the one image the mirror doesn’t reflect, is hidden within the walls of my chest. My heart is bigger than any vast sea and completely open and welcoming to someone who is worthy. This is the total picture my mirror reveals to me.
