    Would you listen to Great African American Literary Voices again? Why?

    Yes. I plan on listening to this book many more times. I just wish it was a little clearer, and much more longer. Also, I wish the the book introduced each poet. If I were not familiar with the poems I would not know what I was listening to.

    Tressa always thought that the best moment in her life was the day she gave birth to her twin boys, Khalil and Hadji, but even better was when she got the news that their abusive father, Lucky, was dead. His death gave the streets freedom and safety, and it gave Tressa an opportunity to start over. Thrilled the bad days were gone, she soon realized that, even though Lucky was dead, she would never be free of him. When the twins discover that Indie, the man who raised them, had a hand in killing their father, nothing can stop them from plotting their revenge. They are about to find out that nothing is what it seems.

    Would you listen to Project Chick 2 again? Why?

    I would not listen to it again, but it is not because this title wasn't good. I was a good listen, I just repeat very little books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the twist and turns to this book, and I LOVE those twins. They are truly a mess. Especially that Ali.He is more like his stepfather while the other twin is a miniature Lucky.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was Ace being approached by Indie. Indie is so awesome, and adds a lot of flavor to this storyline. Please don't kill him off Nikki.. It would hurt me too bad!


    Any additional comments?

    I did not expect there to be a part 2 to Project Chick. I read the first book so long ago, I almost forgot about. I did not have any expectations, so I honestly was not let down. Nikki Turner books have so many different twist on street lit.I can truly appreciate that. I hate for an author to glorify the lifestyle too much. Nikki has an awesome balance.

    It's been months since Reverend Curtis learned that his wife Charlotte had affairs with two different men, and for now, he continues to be cordial and respectful to her. But he's also made it clear that once their son Matthew graduates high school, he will be filing for divorce. Charlotte, on the other hand, continues to do everything possible to make amends in hopes of saving their marriage. Unfortunately, Curtis is ready to move on and is being propositioned by a woman who desperately wants to become the next Mrs. Black.

    Though I was wishing for another ending to the Curtis Black series, I am still happy with the ending and that this family was able to get on the right track!!!

    It’s true! You can do badly all by yourself. Yet, the reality is, by placing your faith in God and yourself and not someone else, you can fulfill your purpose and dreams. Join Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant as he preaches this three-part series with the messages "I Can’t Waste Another Tear", "You Don’t Know What You Did to Me", and "I’ve Had Enough".

    Where does I Can Do Bad All By Myself rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I can't compare to my other audio books it is in a lane of it's own. It is a sermon not a book. It is an impeccable sermon if I may say so myself.

    Story
    Would you try another book from E L James and/or Becca Battoe?

    The narrator was great before. Like a prior review says an 21 year old is young, and innocent. Especially a 21 year old virgin. BUT, she is annoying. VERY ANNOYING. She is confused at every turn. The book is more so repetitive then surprising. I listened to the first book, and thought to give the second book a try. I am not pleased. I will not be listening to the third book.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A larger variety of words to describe emotions, and a larger range of emotions from the main characters.
