I loved Murderville it was my favorite book, but I must say that this may be my favorite series. This duo has an awesome collaboration of thoughts and the way that these two have put together this tale is SIMPLY AMAZING! I loved how the authors showed their readers so many different aspects of the way that people really are, and if you think about it we come across these type of people in real life. Loyalty, greed, betrayal, power conflicts, coniving, deceit are the root of all evil and sometimes can be someones true character and nature and you may not even recognize it until it's too late. I think my fave character in the book is Rocoe he was a true soldier who was real; the true definition of a true friend/ ride or die. One thing that I also liked about the book is how the authors show us how hard it is to mentally let go of people who have truly touched our hearts but remain a part of our souls. Also, you never know who to trust because some people aren't the people they portray to be, even family will stab you in your back to get what they want. This book was amazing I still love Liberty and miss Ashai'. The end of the book had me pulling my hair out cause I want more more more I can't wait to hear part 3 I know that it will be captivating. Cary Hite is off the chain with his narration capabilities the best narrator for the series. Please beware there's very descriptive sexual content, violence and harsh language in this book that I LOVED but some folks may not. I can't wait til book 3 cause Dahlia is a bad mamma jamma. WOW what's next!
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.
This was a different type of read only because I had to readjust my mind to a younger generation mind frame because kids these days weren't raised like I was. Mercedes was the true definition of spoiled rotten. This book wasn't bad it just seemed like the characters like Mercedes and Maria were naive and very passive and had no type of sense whatsoever they just did and thought what they were told. The story wasn't bad it just seemed to have a lapse of time from birth to teenager for Mercedes and unanswered questions regarding differnt charcters we met like Hazel and Chino. This performance wasn't bad and the voice matched the characters. All in all this story was for younger audience but I will read another book from this author. I do like how the book ended.
I liked this book it was very suspenseful and helped me understand how Paris become the bad chick that we know her to be in other books. I love her loyalty to her family and you can tell she has always been loyal to her family even in the midst of her being in love. She is still a super freak and willing to do what she has to do to get the job done. The narrator brought life and emotion to this book. I was able to feel the suspense and fight in the words that were used and this author duo worked together very well. I will give this book two thumbs up and will continue to read Carl Weber and Eric Pete books. I am still amazed that Paris found love.
This collection of short stories were really a hott mess. I think the theme I took from all these stories were little girls becoming women way before they were ready, and the men that did them wrong and the people they had to kill to find themselves. Although the stories were long and drawn out I can respect that the authors did their best in writing them. The narrators were pretty good but the stories could have been a lot better. I will not put these authors down but I will be watching to see how well their skills will develop. But to sum it all up "I'm not impressed".
