10 Minutes Past Too Late
Lisa Munroe is a successful, single young black attorney, branded from childhood with the nickname, "Bad Girl." Embracing her title, she has managed to live up to every bit of it-- At first glance, Lisa would appear to have it all--a promising career, a committed relationship with her beau Darnel Harvin, and the prospect of more to come. But underneath it all, the realization that this could be a "long-term relationship," which she’d never planned, and scares the hell out of her-- Then enters the flashy New York lawyer Mike Wilson, whose forceful nature could destroy it all-- Like a top spinning out of control, crashing into everyone around her--with the love of one man and the lust of another--she finds herself back into a corner and forced to reveal everything. During this downward spiral, Lisa begins to look within herself to confront some truths that could forever change her, even shatter the lives around her--Sometimes, we have to go to the brink of self destruction to finally come to rest at a place of happiness. But, for Lisa, is it ten minutes past too late?

“I found 10 Minutes Past Too Late to be a very entertaining read. The storyline was fast-paced, the dialogue was lively and explosive at times, which I loved, and I found myself flipping through the pages anxiously wanting to see how the story would end. I would definitely recommend this novel to others, and I look forward to reading Malone’s sophomoric effort.
