    Yes and i love all of her performances


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Reckless is an exciting, sexy anthology from three hot authors of urban lit. In "Desperate Housewife", Carmen Foster thinks she has it all—a perfect house, kids, and marriage—until she stumbles upon racy texts from her husband, Forrest, to his baby mama, Toni, who desperately wants Forrest back. Carmen has an affair of her own, but when scheming Toni threatens to reveal her secret, revenge takes an unexpected turn.

    Jada left home at the age of sixteen, running from her own demons and the horrors of physical abuse inflicted by her mother’s boyfriend. She partied hard, and life seemed good when she was with Born, the neighborhood kingpin whose name was synonymous with money, power, and respect. But all his love couldn’t save her from a crack addiction. Jada goes from crack addict and prostitute to survivor and back again before she finds the strength to live for herself and come out on top.

    Entertainment journalist and biographer Aliya S. King has composed a fascinating satirical work about celebrities. Although fictional, the characters in Platinum bear striking resemblance to actual celebrities alive today. Freelance journalist Alex Maxwell plans to marry a famous rapper. But Alex’s situation gets complicated as she starts writing a story that highlights some of the many ways that fame can cripple or destroy a relationship.

    i always like her, very animated


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Platinum?

    In Drama 99 FM, Janine Morris delivers a sizzling tale about three bodacious women who are living life to the fullest - and running the risk of crashing and burning. Naomi is a rising star in the music industry. Sereeta has a special talent for hooking up NBA ballers with luscious ladies. And Madison makes careers as the music director of the Big Apple’s hottest radio station. Each is on top of the world, but affairs of the heart have a way of turning everything upside down.

    What would have made Pleasure Seekers better?

    i don't really know, it just dragged on forever and really had no point to me


    What was most disappointing about Rochelle Alers’s story?

    it was really slow and made too many references to color


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    i think some of her characters sounded mammy-ish (I know that is not a word)


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Pleasure Seekers?

    Not really sure, just seemed like a lot of it was filler
