    With Samad’s target on her back, Liberty must survive the harsh streets alone. But when a chance encounter pushes her into the arms of a new friend, Po, the two take on the California kingpin - and step full force into the game. As bullets and sparks fly, the unlikely pair embarks on a serendipitous journey back to where it all started: Sierra Leone. With a new overseas connection, Po sees an opportunity that is too good to pass up. When his pursuit of the American dream conflicts with Liberty’s past, will they be able to survive, or will the drug empire that they’ve built together come crashing down?

    Martin Grey, a smart, talented black lawyer working out of a storefront in Queens, becomes friendly with a group of some of the most powerful, wealthy, and esteemed black men in America. He's dazzled by what they've accomplished, and they seem to think he has the potential to be as successful as they are. They invite him for a weekend away from it all - no wives, no cell phones, no talk of business. But far from home and cut off from everyone he loves, he discovers a disturbing secret that challenges some of his deepest convictions.

But getting him to open his heart once more won't be enough to satisfy her. Enlisting the help of Chicago's worst enemy is the fastest way she knows to expose Madison's most brazen deception yet. But Madison has more than one devastating card to play…

    How far will you go to save someone you love and trust when they’ve kept a dangerous secret for years? That’s the question facing Lance Kingston, a successful Houston magazine executive whose recent marriage to beautiful, high-powered attorney Tia Jiles seemed to promise a bright future for both of them. But under the surface, a fierce and frightening storm was brewing. That’s because Tia never revealed to Lance what she and her family have known since Tia was 17....

    this book opens the door to some real life lessons, I know lots of black people who don't believe in depression and this is sad to say, but a lot of us are in a state of depression of some form or fashion and don't want to face the fact, til life gets to heavy to handle. We need to get with the program. Although the book was a bit on the young side for me, I think it could be a wake up call for a lot of younger women, I give this book an A

    The author of this series should be writing movie scripts, she's that good of a writer, I work outdoors for a living, so audio books work better for me, I only listen to my books while working which makes for a shorter day, but I almost couldn't wait to get back to work to listen to the next chapter, OMG, what a great story. keep writing girl, and I'll keep buying.

    Who Asked You? opens as Trinetta leaves her two young sons with her mother, Betty Jean, and promptly disappears. BJ, a trademark McMillan heroine, already has her hands full dealing with her other adult children, two opinionated sisters, an ill husband, and her own postponed dreams - all while holding down a job as a hotel maid. Her son Dexter is about to be paroled from prison; Quentin, the family success, can't be bothered to lend a hand; and taking care of two lively grandsons is the last thing BJ thinks she needs.

    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    they all made it as if you were right in the front row of a show, they were so real.


    If you could take any character from Who Asked You? out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Betty Jean, and her sisters, cause I could use some old school, down to earth, without beating around the bush advice myself.


    Any additional comments?

    yes, this was an excellent book, I want to give Terry Mcmillan kudo's for her great imagination and skill in writing she is one of my favorite writers. BUT PLEASE LEAVE NARRATING TO THE PROFESSIONALS, (I'm sorry) but you should NEVER do this again, you are a writer, your voice is not???, I don't know how to put it without being rude, so let's just keep it as it is. Just keep writing, and I'll keep buying. Again GREAT BOOK.

    What disappointed you about Grown Folks Business?

    just wasn't feeling the story, too drawn out for something that was obvious





    Has Grown Folks Business turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Patricia R. Floyd?

    love her as a narrator, story was whack


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    none
