Love Don't Live Here Anymore" is a song written by Miles Gregory and originally recorded by Rose Royce. It was produced by former Motown songwriter and producer Norman Whitfield for Whitfield Records. Lead vocals were sung by Gwen Dickey and the song was released as the second single from their third studio album Strikes Again. The song was developed as a result of producer Whitfield's interest to work with Paul Buckmaster, the British arranger and composer.

Written in alternating viewpoints, a thought-provoking novel of love, marriage, sexuality, ambition, and temptation follows modern couple Randy Murphy and Mikki Chance-Murphy, as their marriage is tested by their careers when Randy is temporarily relocated to Paris to pursue a distinguished account, while Mikki finds herself attracted to Randy's best friend.

I really did like this book and the fact that it told both sides of the story. That being said, I have to say, Mikki is the most annoying, self-centered, spoiled litte brat ever. I found it very hard to feel any empathy for her, while Randy wasn't perfect she did things that were just childish and ridiculous, but after seeing how her Mother and sister were, I could understand where she gets her totally unrealistic view about what a marriage is. I think she deserved a little more than being put out on the street in her underwear. As for the character of Marcus, I would have liked to have been some discussion on what his motives were. The mother's reaction to the Father's indiscrestion was a little over the top, I could understand being angry but....... Oh well, all in all it was an interesting read.

Love Don't Live Here Anymore. We have heard the song of woe and pain. Another man, another woman feels they have been abandoned in their relationship. This novel captures the essence of a love and marriage gone sour and the path that has brought it to this point.
Husband and wife authors Milner and Chiles, who are known for their nonfiction- he said/she said books on love and relationships, employ the same technique in their first novel. We hear from Randy first, who is in Paris as an advertising executive. He left his disgruntled wife Mekki, a dress designer, back home lonely, frustrated, and dissatisfied. Meanwhile Mekki finds solace in the arms of Marcus, Randy's best friend. A trip to Paris to try to repair the damage that has already been done proves to be disastrous. Can this marriage be saved?
I loved the writing, style and the voices of Randy and Mekki. We got to see their less than perfect personas. All of their fears, dreams, and fantasies were revealed. I didn't always like these characters. In fact, I spent a great deal of time cursing Mekki under my breath. Randy is an overachiever yet he has insecurities and sensitivities that most men will not admit to. I often wondered how these two got together in the first place (he wants children, she does not) because it seemed there was little communication to begin with. A secondary story line involving Mekki's parents' crumbling long time marriage is also a lesson about how precarious and vulnerable our relationships can be.
For me this was a mature read though the protagonists were in their late 20s, early 30s. It methodically detailed a message that was conveyed throughout the novel. Most couples do not put enough time and energy into making a marriage work (divorce statistics prove that). I enjoyed the glimpses of Paris and the differences in work ethics of the French and the Americans as well as the office politics. The one blight for me was Marcus and his reasons for stabbing his best friend in the back. I felt his character was underdeveloped because I had to make assumptions as to why. I gave this book a 4.5 rating but because of this detail I didn't feel comfortable rounding it up to a 5 for this review.

Love Don't Live Here Anymore is a story of the perfunctory demise of a three year marriage between Mikki and Randy... the typical successful, professionally driven products of baby boomers. Told in first person narrative through alternating chapters that are appropriately titled He/She, the story deals more with the internal, emotional battle and struggle to make sense of things, rather than how to solve the myriad of issues that arise throughout the story. As the marriage spirals downward, each partner tussles with conflicting emotions, illicit needs, and steady guilt. The plot and story line were phenomenal. It was the delivery that left a lot to be desired.
The interspersed psychology of marital problems was tossed in the story along with threads of dialogue that failed to engage me. Like disobedient children on punishment, we were left out of intimate interactions between key characters. We didn't get to experience the characters' actions; instead, we were told most things. The story would have a more sincere impact with more meaningful dialogue.
The outstanding plot suffered because of the underdeveloped story, and extremely static, one-dimensional characters. The dialogue and character interaction was limited and timid, preventing me from honestly getting involved in the story. I never really developed a reader/character connection. I felt very detached from the story and the characters.
I finished reading the story; enamoured with the premise, yet feeling as if I missed something. Nevertheless, it is an enjoyable story with real-life marital issues and obstacles.
