For four sistahs, New Year's Eve should be an occasion to celebrate, and they're determined to do so in Kiss the Year Goodbye, a quartet of spicy tales. In Tu-Shonda L. Whitaker's Whatever It Takes, India Parker launches into a fantastic fling with her friend Joan's 20-something son Devin, but Joan is convinced that India is playing around with daddy Devin Sr. instead. In Brenda Thomas' Every New Year, Cynthia accepted Terrell's proposal and his ring on Christmas Eve and intends to holiday in Hawaii with him, until an accident leaves her memory gone and she discovers irresistible fantasy in the arms of her doctor. London Phillips gets caught up between twin sisters: outgoing Jada, and Jovie, who seems prim and proper at first, but burns with hidden passions in Crystal Lacey Winslow's I Play for Keeps. Gina's tired of her long-distance relationship with boyfriend Chris and captivated by the oh-so-tempting Kahlil in Daaimah S. Poole's My Boo.
