A beautiful summer's day, June 8th to be exact, and Mykal is moping in her house over the break-up with her true love, Nixon, almost two years ago. She should be over it, but it is worse today because Nixon is marrying her cousin today! Enter Taranj, Mykal's best friend since childhood, who is determined to get her out of the house and take her to a club. The only issue for Mykal is that it's a gay club, and Mykal is a little homophobic, even if she won't admit it. Yet she clings to Taranj as a best friend, even to the point of other relationships, which makes people wonder about their relationship. Fluid Veracity is more about the way relationships weave and evolve, that you can be a best friend and always there for someone, yet not be the same sexual orientation. Nicole M. Scott writes a modern tale of the working woman, with complicated family dynamics to deal with, still trying to find her own way in the world.

Fluid Veracity was at times a bit hard to follow, but having said that and now that I have read it through once, I think on a second reading it would not be nearly as hard to follow. Mykal truly believes that her lost love Nixon was her only chance at love, and when she meets Aaron, she finds a guy who loves her maybe a little too much. Preconceived notions, family dynamics, rumors, lies and half-truths all interact to turn what could be ordinary into something completely different. Author Nicole M. Scott uses the modern world as a backdrop to this novel, and it turns out to be something everyone can relate to in one way or another. Great read for adults.
