    Growing up poor in Texas, Vera Lomax used every gold-digging trick in the book to land a rich husband. Now living in the lap of luxury in San Francisco, her only job is to fawn over her much-older husband, so it's been easy for her to balance a life of shopping and affairs with younger men with a major secret: the 16-year bribery of one of her husband's mistresses to keep her pregnancy under wraps. Vera figures that a little hush money every month will ensure her husband's fortune is hers alone....

    This literary art work is classic Mary Monroe, with the high energy vivid characters. Within this book it is plenty rags to riches stories, chocked full of drama. Some of the characters are so0 naive, but it’s so well written it’s believable. I thought the daddy character was going to run out of money. It is taking everything in me not to spoil it, so I will stop now. 2 thumbs up. If you are a fan – you will love it. If this is your 1st MM book, you will be a fan. Great read.

His team has been assigned to take down the biggest drug operation in the city. There's only one problem...the head of the operation is his twin brother, Scar Johnson.

    What I loved about this book was two very distinct things it was 18 hours long and it was GOOOOOOD! I like long books, but only if they are good. The narrator, what a voice, yummm (sorry), but it added to the entire project. I live near B-more on the Virginia side and have heard about the wire etc, so to draw from that knowledge base made it so true. This was like a movie in my head. A great love, widespread corruption, deception, karma like a MUG, lol, politics, book smart w/o street smart and vice versa. Wont disappoint!

    I ordered this on reluctantly because it said 2 and I didn’t read one, which I will go back to read, not because, I feel like I missed something because this seemed like a story ALL ON ITS OWN!!! I think a #3 should be created – that is how much I enjoyed it. Was upset when it ended. The negativity in the life of a child shouldn’t ever exist in the home, but it did. As in real life, at least the child had a go-to strong force to pull from. IT WAS GOOD. I’m trying hard to let you know it was good w/o telling the story, I hope I have you interested, because my attention was held to the end! Also great character name. lol!

    The characters are different from what I’m accustomed. A guard and an inmate – go figure, I guess it happens. This is a really good story and the twist and turns keep you on edge. A lot happens in this short period. I like to purchase books that are a minimum 8-10 hours. I was skeptical how much excitement and intensity would evolve in the short time. This Author team didn’t disappoint, it is chocked full of dramatics. Not my first book by this author. Good stuff, good stuff. Betrayal, love, got yo back loyalty, un-expectants – Yeah! Get this one, great beach read.

    Lutishia Lovely writes tales of church life that are positively scandalous - in all the right ways. Side-splittingly funny, bawdy, and chock-full of oh-no- you-did-not moments, A Preacher's Passion stars Passion Perkins, who despite her name hasn't had a man in her inner sanctum for five long years. But things are about to change.

    Hip-hop artist Tip "T.I." Harris has received every acclaim the music world has to offer. Now, working with bestselling celebrity collaborator David Ritz, T.I. applies all his talent and experience to the world of fiction by creating the epic love story of Power and Beauty. After the death of his mother, Charlotte, Paul “Power” Clay allows himself to be guided by Slim, a local businessman. Slim always has the best of everything, and Power is sure that if he learns Slim's ways, he'll make something of himself - and perhaps be worthy of Tanya “Beauty” Long.

    Story

    Ok so I didn’t read the narrative about the book and simply assumed it was an autobiography of sorts. (((NOT!!)) It’s a novel a pretty good novel. Initially I thought it was about T.I.’s life, but the story didn’t match up with the things “I know” about T.I.

    The book has two main characters that it follows in a coming of age type of story line (which I heart). The drama and the twist and turns are unexpected. Some events seems unrealistic, like the portions of the young girl moving to all these places (East & West coasts and the Midwest ) and being put up w/o paying rent, obtaining hands-on formal training in the fashion industry. The same things happening with the guy in the book, moving around and learning the drug business indirectly by being put up and not paying his own way. I also think it is very unbelievable for a guy in which they portrayed to be able to carry out one of his 1st tasks w/o hesitation or a bit of remorse. That is all I can say without telling you the intricate details.

    GO BUY, IT’S A REALLY GOOD READ!!!

    A Blackboard best-selling author, Camika Spencer has perfectly captured the corporate world in this tale of success and secrets. Joyce, Margaret, and Faulkner all work for a major telephone company. Although Faulkner should be promoted, Joyce, her manager, seems determined to prevent it. And although Joyce and long-time employee Margaret used to be best friends, now they no longer speak.

    I would have like to have known more on various characters, but I assume that is for sequels. I'm not hype about the book. It was definitely a good book, it wasn't GREAT. I would recommend.

    It was about work drama, but not a lot of emphasis on cubicle, I guess I was being to literal. The characters were well developed. NOT predictable, which was a plus!

    Good Read.

    In the multibillion-dollar entertainment industry, there is a secret society of women all vying for the opportunity to live a lavish lifestyle by snagging a famous young millionaire. Betty Blaise, aka Fly Betty, was not in it to be a wife or the baby momma of a wealthy public figure - she set her sights much higher. While most of these women use sex as their weapon of choice, Betty, a psychology major, has developed a much more powerful weapon. But when she meets a man that she would never have anticipated falling for, her strict rules and standards are put to the test - and the tools she used so effectively against wealthy men begin to turn against her.

    I was rooting for Fly Betty the entire book. I didn't understand how Scar had the money, to throw around. The ending was 'Fly Betty'! The rules, wake me up when they are over. The ending ties everything together. I like how the author weaves the story together with the two generations.

    This book performance would be Dynamic, with another narrator. It might be better self read!

    The book and content was AMAZING!

    Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime: Harlem. Throughout his entire time in exile, the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci - but one bullet changed everything. When his enemies tried to murder Gucci, they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all.

    I don’t usually gravitate toward street fiction, if that is a genre (drug dealers and hustlers). Lately I have come across a few that have piqued my interest, this being one of them. This was a REALLY GOOD BOOK! As with most fiction, the authors throw some stuff in that make you say, “Riiiiight that could happen” (sarcastically). There’s never a dull moment. Well worth my gamble to purchase. I will read more books from this author. The book had, love, loyalty, betrayal, gangster, the opposite of a gangster the security guards, lol.
    Knowing I have read a book within a series excites me, because, I know there are more good books to read. I have to go figure the sequence and listen away. Pick them up and enjoy a slice of pie from the other side of the tracks.
