    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!

    The romance novels of New York Times best-selling author Brenda Jackson have won an ardent following for velvety prose that can fluster any reader with the heat of her steamy tales. With In the Doctor’s Bed, Jackson writes a prescription for loneliness that takes “beside manner” to enticing new places. Readers won’t only want to take two pills and call the doctor in the morning, they’ll want to call the doctor in the afternoon, evening, and all through the night.

    I really enjoyed this novel. I would say, if I was actually reading it, it would be what you call a page turner. Ugggh couldn’t stand the nosey busy old body nurse chick/blocker (lol). I read this a while ago, but I remember wanting it to work out between Jaclyn and Dr. De Winter. The book allowed for a definite part two. I’m waiting.

    I will definitely refer to friends.

    If you anticipated the adventure continuing the momentum, well B&S DELIVERED!!!! The development of ghost/Chasity’s character genius and believable. The move across the pond was interesting and I loved the accents. My friends & I have been walking through my work office calling each other bruvf or however you spell it. I did get lost on some of the accents.

    Awesome read.

    Sixteen-year-old Diamond "Ray-Ray" Jenkins has it made in the shade, until one wrong move by her parents turns their lives upside down. Their secret of taking from the wrong street King in the Trap, Damien Orlando, has now put her in peril. The death of her parents signals an end to Diamond's semi-perfect life, putting her in the hands of evil. Her only salvation is to learn the game, and to put her trust in a kid wearing a hoodie.

    You will so0 get lost, caught up & submerged in this book. The best part is that this book is so juicy that there’s a (((((part II)))). Chock full of ACTION, passion, suspense……the imagery is so vivid you can see this like a movie in your head.

    I picked this book 1st because everything I have read by Carl Weber was a home run. Then I wanted to see if Paula Jai Parker could do her thing as a narrator – She DID!!!! As well as dreamy voice James Edward Shippy.

    Favorite characters were Ray-Ray & Trigger. How they met crazy but you want them to get together no matter how twisted. You also kinda want Ray-Ray & Dame to be together and do big things. When the narrators do Big Jakes voice, its funny but believable.
    Over all this was an awesome compilation between the authors and the narrators……excited about part II.

    Story #1 was awesome. I love the voice of the fat dude, I was laughing at the narrators skills. I was grossed out by the imagery, which I think means she did an amazing job painting the picture. I was captivated. What is the next move, did that really just happen, why did she do that, what happened to that dude. I already recommended this to my fellow reading buddy.

    Ok, this book was so good, that I almost threw up in some parts they were so fantastically graphic. You will know the parts when you get there. How the author comes up with some of this stuff is beyond me, but it makes for great story telling.
    Thoroughly enjoyed, no wonder the reviews are stellar.

    A home-run book (series)!

    Ummm he did, she did what, who was that? A times it was a bit hard to follow who was who. The story is gooT! I got mad at the one part where someone was killed, that I thought was in it to the end. The sex scenes are so0 ZANE! I enjoyed the book, mad that part II is unavailable on this medium. Hey I'm not above reading, going to buy the book.

    Lutishia Lovely, author of A Preacher’s Passion, pens this provocative tale about a minister and his congregation caught up in a whirlwind of scandal. The young Reverend Nate Thicke has made quite the reputation for himself ,but when he falls in love and gets married, he swears to become a one-woman man. Most of his congregation forgives him for his past sins, but some aren’t quite ready to give the Reverend a second chance.

    Slow to start, but once it got moving it was a GREAT LISTEN. The covering of the flock is some straight bullish, in this sense. I do not share. It is a shame what parents do to children regarding brainwashing. The best thing is to grow up and be open to learn outside your parental grasp. Darn Church Folk.

    This very well written story helps you explore the old cliche’, Never say Never. It’s about friendships, that bud from college and families develop and the entire families become so close it is similar to one big happy family. Then life steps lines get crossed, feelings get hurt and friendships get tested.

    Great story, I thoroughly enjoyed it and would refer it to fellow readers with enthusiasm.

    Detective James Wolf earned the nickname Lone Wolf from his inability to work with a partner. He's a hard cop who doesn't mind bending the rules to the breaking point to make a case, which is why Internal Affairs is digging in his backyard, looking for buried bones. People are starting to wonder which side of the law the Lone Wolf really hunts for. With his career hanging by a thread, he needs a major show of good faith to stay employed and out of prison. That's when he gets the call....

    The narrator has a dreamy voice, I love it. The narrative has you on the edge of your seat, speculating whose doing what and the motive. Some characters appear from other books, written by K’wan. Additionally trying to figure out what side of the law the detective is on. Although short, I enjoyed it, not sure it could have been longer. The details and the suspense have your mind mentally flipping back through, trying to figure out stuff.

    Two couples decide to sign up for a show called Trading Wives which is a ghetto version of the reality show Wife Swap.

But before these two couples are able to claim their prize money, one wife isn't going to want to return home, so fist fights will erupt and there will be a lot of blood shed. In the end who will end up with whom?

    Don’t judge a book by the title, lol. NOW this was so interested because my expectation and mind was thinking one thing, but the book was going in a different directions. I had so many questions. The experiment was crazy and questionable. And the other item was, where were the people from the reality show in this? Ok I won’t ask too many questions so I won’t have to add spoiler alert. The imagery was fun for me because, I’m from the area described in the book and not only that, the hotel, yeah yeah yeah, I stayed there before! It’s a very nice hotel. I would different say this is a good read. Held my interest from the beginning. Get it!
