Take a peek into Nyagra's story—a story about friendship, family, and love—about emotions over material things and about finding love and happiness in a place never imagined.
Nyagra Ensley is beautiful, smart, and very successful. In a word, she's damn near perfect. But it's lonely at the top because perfection can only tolerate perfection. That means only the "perfect" man will do. But searching for a soul mate repeatedly turns her life topsy-turvy. While her career is booming, her love life has as much spark as a firecracker in a swimming pool. She’s had only bad luck with the men that look perfect on the outside, but are actually losers on the inside. After the cheating live-in boyfriend, the lying CEO, a mama’s boy, an older gentlemen dependent on Viagra, and a Fed-Ex delivery man, she’s starting to lose hope. As she continues her quest, the more disappointing, depressing—but humorous—her life becomes. All this searching has made her tired. She vows to loosen up and become less superficial for the New Year. Her resolution activates her ability to view people for who they are on the inside and unlocks the door for a man that doesn't fit her every criterion—or does he?
