Wow how this story unfolded. I simply love the way the authors played the roles that they were assigned. I didn't really know what to expect but at the end of the book all the scheming that was taking place was brought together very well and each individual family members roll. I didn't expect so much drama and I was waiting to see who the first person in the family business was going to die. This book has some of the best narrators that urban fiction has to offer I love Patricia Floyd and Ezra Knight voices very strong. I would recommend this book to other Carl Weber fans.
I liked this book and was real into it. I loved the characters and their connections according to their back stories and why they ended up where they were at. There are characters you want to see die and characters that you really feel close to. To me the most effective character was Trigga who was a menace that put fear in you cause he would kill you in the blink of an eye, but throughout the story I felt close to him. I learned that LOYALTY is only given to those who have proven themselves loyal, and at the blink of an eye that loyalty can turn into hatred. My favorite character would definately be Gina. I can see why RaeRae aka Diamond would become attached to this character like she did. Dame was a beast and oh so raw and controlling but so was Trigga when it came to controlling the important things that were planned. The sexual content and brutality was well written and had me clenching my teeth and breathing hard like OH NO, OH NO! I loved the Narrators they were perfect. All in all this book was a good one and I will be ready for the next volume.
This book was a little different twist from what I am used to reading from this author. Very suspenseful and lots of drama and mystery. I didn't really care for the story though. The characters were strong and the plot was well defined. It took me a lil more time to get into this story and complete it because I felt as if the story dragged on and on. I like Meesha Mink and will continue to support her work, but this story just wasn't for me.
Mike O, Ohhhh, Mike O! What else can I say but you are so wrong for leaving me hanging like this. I want more! This story was very well developed and you get to know the characters and their strengths and weaknesses. The description and sexual content in the book were well written and filled with imagination. What I like most about this book is the many real life topics you see the characters go through. This book actually has opened my eyes to what is going on in the minds of our youth and the things they deal with in their young lives. I also like how the author helps the readers put the puzzle pieces together so that you know the back story and the importance of some of the characters and can recognize their roles in the story. Lashone Garth is a good narrator and did ok but I think Celeste Graham would have did an awesome job too. I suggest this book to all my urban literature friends you won't want to put this one down. I can't wait for the sequel to see how the characters lives turn out based on everything that we now know. Good Job Mike O you did that and I want more!
This book was a pretty good read because the narrator did an awesome job performing, but the problem that I am having is identifying who some of the charcters in the book are. There were so many names thrown at me in the beginning that I got lost in figuring out who's role was who's. It seems to me there is a lot going on under the surface that we are left to wonder about and there are things that we really don't know and trying to put together. In some scenes I found myself asking Ummmmm who was that she just called or who the hell is this person and did I hear his name before. I am rereading this book again to figure out who some of the characters are again and what role did the play from past to the present. Who was who's mother and who really is the lady who was following Koko. I was lost trying to figure out a lot of things that I guess the reader is suppose to realize, but I never realized what I was suppose to. I had more questions than answers. Wahida Clark books are action packed and fun to get in to and I applause the author for buidling a good story in the mean time. I would read another book like this but would suggest the author reveal a lil more instead of making us wonder on the things that I had questions on.
What I liked about the book was the suspense and the story line. What I didn't care too much about was the length of the book. I gave this book a try to find something new and it just wasn't my favorite. Although this wasn't the best book I have listened to I know my fiancee would like this book. If you like books about scheeming, con artists and trickery this book would intrigue you.
This book was a great read. The narrator was good and the story line was pretty good. What I liked about this story was the way that Zane was able to show how friendships can go from all good and in the blink of an eye turn all bad. Your friends the people you learned to love and have a loyalty towards can become your worst enemy. I can't wait to see the play version of this book and fall in love with the characters that Zane created. Good job ZANE!
I simply love the way that KiKi Swinson can put a story together. This book was a wonderful example of story telling and it captured my attention. Today's audience is so into the drama of things that happen on television, we never realize what happens during the taping of shows like Real Houswives, Basketball Wives and television shows like wife swap can have a major impact on the characters real lives. When we watch these shows we see what kind of people these are, you can only play a role for so long and after enough time goes by true character gets revealed. The grass isn't always greener or maybe it is with some folks. I always ask myself is the money worth me opening up my life to world. This book was a great of example of how money can ruin what you have to live for. In this book I found myself loving and hating the characters. My favorite thus far was was Trice and it's not just because I am a Trice myself but because the title of the book says it all "Wife Extraordinaire" and that is exactly what she is. The narrators did an excellent job bringing life and action to their words. This book actually helped open my mind to what would I do if I were in each of the characters shoes. I even asked my fiancee those "what if" questions to see if he would do the same thing that Troy did throughout the story. This is a great read and 2 thumbs up to Miss Kiki for this book right here.
I thought this story was going to be freaky deaky, sweat drenching, explicit to the max filled with sexual scenes that would take my mind to different levels. That's what I wanted and expected but that definately is not what this book was about. I am a lil disappointed but it was a reasonable story. I wasn't too intrigued by this book, not saying it wasn't good but I guess I wanted the RAW Hardcore raunchy explicit uncut version. Don't judge me that's just how I like my books. Bahni Turpin was phenominal with this read though, her voice is so assertive and live. Not a bad book, there was a lot going on around each and every corner. A lot of revelations that came to light within this book. This book just wasn't for me.
I realized how much I love the author Jennifer Luckett her stories are so captivating and keep your mind going and you don't want to stop. What I loved about this audio was the performance the narrator was dabombdotcom. My favorite person in the book was Mr. Sam the nosey neighbor because he was the true definition of a horny old man. This story had many twists and turns where you never knew what was to happen next. Prince and Nicole's relationship and how they came to be together was a wonderful part of this story. It was different because they were loyal to one another from beginning to the end. One thing you will learn throughout this book is that loyalty means nothing in the streets and money talks. This book helped me realize that people do the craziest things and really no one knows nobody. Renegade was dirty oh so dirty and to the people who get in to this story will understand what I mean, all I can say is he took Dirty to a whole other level. Great story!
I guess I like drama and twists and turns, that is the only reason the rating is so low because this book was not my cup of tea. There really wasn't anything that grasped my attention to make me wanna to stay tuned in this book. It took me about a week to finish this listen. It was like watching a daily soap opera and it takes a minute for the story to take off and get into. This just wasn't the book for me it would better suite a grandma or my mother. Not too much drama, just a little everyday type of conflict and a good clean story about regular ordinary kind of people.
