It has a middle ranking.It was not amazing but it was pretty interesting and the cliff hanger at the end had me prepared to move on to the second book.
Do not have another book to compare besides the second installment.
Some of them I really liked, like the ones who played Orlando and LC. But others annoyed me like the ones who played London and Paris.
The moment that moved me was when Paris was fighting off the people for her brother Rio. Its like this is the moment when she finally made sense.
I think that the world that was created was the best part of Little Black Girl lost. The author did an excellent job transporting me to the 1950s New Orleans setting.
The most memorable moment was Johnny's mother sold her virginity. It was just really hard to hear due to it being so detailed but it was needed to really understand what Johnny lost and how she lost it.
I think that I like thed Paulo (Main male character) was not a perfect guy. It goes with the ending where the author talks about redemption. Not only his redemption but also that of Johnnys.
I would have had Paulo and Johnny experience more together. They reconnecteded, fell in love and got engaged in a matter of a week pretty much from spending time at each others homes. I just wish there was more substance in their relationship to make their love more real.
Paulo was definetly my favorite. She sounded masculine, smooth and sensual with a thick accent.. It was very believable.
Not really. I must say Zane had parts and jokes that did make me laugh. And some of the endearing thoughts between Paulo and Johnny did put a smile on my face.
I would recommend this audiobook to a friend because it shows how drugs can effect your past, future and present but the only way to navigate through it is to dig deep and find a strength that can not be broken. I think both ladies in the next book are going to need that strength.
I think the most memorable moment was when Mercedes told Sunny about how she was so proud of her mother for no longer being on drugs even though Sunny knew she was using. This situation did not make her stop using but made her feel so bad that she wanted to use more. This was the same issue that Jada had in the first book where her guilt of her lies made her want to cover it up with drugs. I think that this scene shows how powerful an addiction can be. I was hoping that Mercedes love and belief in her mother would have stopped Sunny from continuing but in the end it wasn't enough.
I have listened to the first White Lines Novel and I think she did way better and was more settled in the characters where they sounded more distinct.
I think it would be Born. He sound like a wonderful man and I think he loves Jada but I can see where he is struggling to understand and be there for her. I would like to provide unbiased perspective on the situation.
I think that the best part about The Family Business 2 is that you really see how Bad Ass the entire family is, including the Mom and the Cousin.
I actually have not read a book that I can think of like the Family Business 2 besides the Family Business 1. I can not wait until the 3rd book because I have a lot of questions that I need answers for.
My favorite scene is when Sasha and Paris work together to take down the people who broke into their house.
The family that gives a new meaning to "Ride or Die".
I like how this audiobook had different people play different voices. I must admit that Ruby's voice and Paris's voice was annoying a little bit. There just not enough real in it. My favorite narrator is in this book which is Diana Luke who played Sasha.
I never read the print version of White Lines
I think the most memorable moment of White Lines was when Born finally caught Jada getting high. I just felt his heartbrake and I just imagined Jada so lost and confused.
I like Allyson Johnson for some characters. If it is a book that is more set in the south possibly because I heard a southern accent but for a novel set in New York she kinda put me off.
The Rocks we Carry
I think that the novel was a bit longer than it had to be. The author kept resaying thoughts and feelings over and over. Also I wish we could have received a better ending for Jada and Born. Its just that in the novel we spent so much time with them as a couple, its not that they had to be intimate physically but I wish there was just a little more from Born to Jada about his feelings and wanting to rekindle.
This would not be top on my list of recommendations but if someone was looking for a list of books to read I would add it. The story line was a bit forced. I understand people can fall in love over night but there was no foundation to the love. It was more like they were really attracted to each other and had good sex but there was no real connection beyond that point.
Again would not be on the top of my list.
The narration matched the pace of the story. The narration of the male characters were good but I did not like the narrator for the female characters. He could not convey all the sass, so it sounded like the main character was more annoying versus a sexy independent woman which the book detailed.
Yes if more was added to the relationship of the characters.
Yes. As it was an excellent story about a playboy falling in love. We girls all have the fantasy of turning a bad boy good with our love.
I liked the family dynamics and shows how family issues do play a major part in who you are.
There were a lot of characters and she gave great personality to them all.
You can't run from love.
Yes I would. There is so much action and life and detail in the characters.
I think the most memorable moment is when King Joffery died. The show did not get to that point as of yet and this fan was ready for him to get the boot.
The scene that was my favorite was when Jamie was soaking in the bath with Brienne. I had seen the scene in the show but in the book it was way more organic. I felt like the book brought out so much more of Jamie's character that the show could not do.
This book is to long and to complex to listen to in one sitting but I still give it an A++
I would recommend this book to a friend but it would not be top on my list. I like a good story where it is not all fairy tales but I needed a little more elaboration on the good stuff since the main character went through so much bad stuff.
This is my first Noire book that I listened too.
Nicole Small has a very smooth voice. I really like the life she brings to the different characters.
Actually the story line would be a good movie story line so I would have to say yes.
