Synopsis: There is nothing barbershop owner, Kadaris Kathan, wouldn’t do for his former foster mother turned babysitter, Mama Peaches. Even if that means participating in the upcoming Southlake Park bachelor auction to raise money for the neighborhood. However, Mama Peaches has one request…Kadaris must work with etiquette coach, Khloe Madison, to polish his thuggish exterior before the auction. Despite their chemistry, he hasn’t gotten along with Khloe in years and he’s ready to send her packing. Imagine his surprise when Khloe makes him an offer he can’t refuse.
Khloe Madison has never passed up on a challenge and rough-around-the-edges Kadaris is her biggest challenge yet. He’s stubborn, arrogant, and unfortunately, too sexy for his own good. In order to get through this, she has a proposition for him. All she needs is ten days to turn Kadaris into the ideal bachelor and if he isn’t singing her praises after that, she’ll be at his beck and call the week after the auction. However, if this princess of the neighborhood wins, he’ll regret the day he ever called her prim and proper.
My Thoughts: 🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️ (paddles up) I love Kadaris and Khloe’s journey back to love. Their childhood traumas had them behave in such a way that destroyed their friendship but, it was the lack of communicating to clear the air that made them enemies.
When Momma Peaches asked him to be a part of the auction to help save the neighborhood, it’s no way he could tell her no. The dynamic duel (G’Ma & Deen) created the perfect opportunity for them to work together, with Khloe coaching Kadaris in overcoming his fear of being in spotlight full of strangers. As they work together to prepare for the auction, they are able hash out what drove a wedge between them and ignite the flames of the heart.
In this one the author demonstrates the importance of communicating, not letting the heart become hard and the love of community. Nice additions were the cameos of Meeka and Tone from AF and surprising this auction scene actually happening and the Block Party Auction😂 Great Job!
