Book Synopsis: Anything To Get Rich / No man has ever been able to resist Samiya Savage. The chocolate bombshell has everything: A big wallet, big butt, and sex appeal. What she doesn’t have is a man to call her own. That’s until she met Rich, in her favorite restaurant. She knew that Cupid had finally caught her when she met him. No man had ever captured her heart, and held her attention in the way that he had.
When you find a man like Richard “Richie Rich” Fleming, who’s young, black, and successful, you never let him go. Even if he belongs to someone else. Disregarding the warnings about Rich from her mother and best friend, she continues to pursue Rich, because when the heart wants what the heart wants, you shouldn’t deprive it. The funny thing about loving someone, is sometimes they don't love you back.
