    The beloved #1 Essence best-selling authors of Tryin' to Sleep in the Bed You Made now deliver a novel in which you'll meet their most unforgettable characters yet. Carmen, Jewel, and Regina could not be more different. When they meet as freshmen at Columbia University, they're pretty confident that a friendship among them isn't in the cards.

    Overall

    This book did not come to life till chapter 17. I understand the writers wanted to relate the past and college days of each character first, but damn 17 chapters for that? No warm milk needed if you want to be put to sleep fast. Okay, on the positive side, I really enjoyed everything that happened after college life especially when one character took ill, Im sure millions can relate. A sad but positive ending. An okay listen if you have nothing but time to listen.

    With Samad’s target on her back, Liberty must survive the harsh streets alone. But when a chance encounter pushes her into the arms of a new friend, Po, the two take on the California kingpin - and step full force into the game. As bullets and sparks fly, the unlikely pair embarks on a serendipitous journey back to where it all started: Sierra Leone. With a new overseas connection, Po sees an opportunity that is too good to pass up. When his pursuit of the American dream conflicts with Liberty’s past, will they be able to survive, or will the drug empire that they’ve built together come crashing down?

But when a baby is abandoned on her doorstep, Noelle finds that she is the one at the center of all the drama.

    What made the experience of listening to Deception the most enjoyable?

    This book was so great that I did not know there was a part 1. The author did an awesome job. I hope no one passes on this book.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Tamia because she is a "go getter" someone who goes after what she wants and never give up.


    What about Diana Luke’s performance did you like?

    She was very audible and her tone depicted each character well, it was an easy listen.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was comical at times, made my heart race a bit for example when her ex broke in and when her love saved her well kinda lol

    Madison Tyler thought a man like Granville Washington could fulfill her sexual desires and her need for occasional male companionship. And as the owner of a multimillion-dollar multimedia firm, that’s as much as Madison wants or needs right now. Granville is desperate to hold on to Madison. The harder she tries to end contact with him, the harder he fights to stay connected to her. He knows she doesn’t love him the way he loves her - she’s repeatedly said so - but if she takes time to get to know the man behind the muscles, he’s convinced she’ll agree that they’re perfect for each other.

    It captures you, sucks you right in from the very beginning right through to the end. I lost sleep many nights, Im so anticipating the next installment.


    What did you like best about this story?

    you can relate to the characters.


    What about Nicole Small and Cary Hite ’s performance did you like?

    I like that their acting skills were great and they put themselves in each character.


    If you could rename If I Can’t Have You, what would you call it?

    The Ex Factor


    Any additional comments?

    I just wished there was more in dept dialogue with Granville, more could have been given on different occasions for examole when he kidnapped "the bride" or when he kidnapped "his ex", I was a little disappointed. In the end of this book I felt it was a bit rushed but still a great book.

    In this sequel to Something on the Side, two Rubenesque beauties kiss the Big Apple goodbye and launch a new chapter of the Big Girls Book Club in Richmond, Virginia. But this time, the size-14-and-over ladies’ club is welcoming a chunky (and very male) player into its ranks—and plus-size shenanigans are sure to follow.

    The only thing left for improvement was not to rush the ending into an epilogue, I wanted more...........still do, hurry up with the sequal Carl!
