    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.

    Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist, music producer, and actor T.I. and his bestselling celebrity collaborator, David Ritz, continue the explosive story of Power and Beauty that began in the street-lit epic Power & Beauty. When his mother, Charlotte, was killed, Paul “Power” Clay and his closest friend, Tanya “Beauty” Long, fell under the spell of a savvy and ruthless Atlanta businessman named Slim, who promised to protect them.

    Would you try another book from E. L. James and/or Becca Battoe?

    This book was slow and the sex scene didn't come near a Zane or Dickey..and story line was Sweet Valley High quality. I definitely wasn't impressed.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    If there is a fourth book to this series I definitely wouldn't give it a read or listen.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She grew on me the story line was just too slow and boring for me.


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

    Can't think of one.

    What would have made An Accidental Affair better?

    I'm definitely a Eric Jerome Dickey fan but this book was the worst book that I ever listened to thus far and that's saying alot since I'm a avid listener! I can't believe this is writter by E J Dickey..WOW the only reason I gave it one star because the option to rate a book Zero stars was not listed. I didn't even get through 1 hour of this book.


    What was most disappointing about Eric Jerome Dickey’s story?

    Story line and narrator was awful!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better narrator and maybe I would have attempted to listen to the whole book.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from An Accidental Affair?

    The beginning! Didn't grab my attention at all.

    With a unique style, Noire tantalizes readers with erotic tales and wildly entertaining urban dramas. Featuring one of her most unforgettable characters, Natural Born Liar follows the escapades of Mink LaRue - straight out of Harlem and looking to take a big step up in life. Mink’s got a taste for fine living, and when her resemblance to a missing oil heiress gives her an opportunity to take up residence in a 20-room mansion, you better believe she’s going to jump at the chance.
