    What disappointed you about Breaking the Ties That Bind?

    The storyline was very boring. Her mother harrases her for money a couple times then it goes on and on detailing this boring love affair that never really gets started.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Gwynne Forster again?

    No never, I don't know how this even got published! I selected it because the narrator was one of my favorites.Now I know you can't use that as a way of selecting a good audiobook. I want my credit back. This was the worst book I ever attempted to listen too.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Zzzzzzzzzzzz


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    total disappointment!!!!

    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.

    Dornetta says: "A very compelling story"
    "WOW WHAT A BLOCKBUSTER!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Lots of drama and story twists. Each character is detailed and interesting. This book was very long and I couldn't stop listening. Never wanted it to end. Exordinary writing should be made into a movie.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of White Lines?

    Jada was the most memorable, how she and Sunny resolved the child custody problem.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    So many great scenes!!!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jada went back to her addiction.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of the best audiobooks I have listened too!!
