    Is a real man too hot for a pampered diva to handle? For Kaitlyn Strong, life has been a fun-filled free ride, all expenses paid by her wealthy father. As for relationships, why would Kaitlyn want to give up the fabulous single life? But after she goes on her most outrageous spending bender yet, she's informed it's time to make her own way. For a shocked Kaitlyn, that means getting a job - and an affordable apartment to go with it.

    What made the experience of listening to Red Hot the most enjoyable?

    I love romance and this was truly a romance. I like that Kat actually had morals and didn't just jump right into sex.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Red Hot?

    When Kat and Quint went on their first date. Very cute!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It hit all of my emotions. I love how every decision Quint made he had his daughter in mind. I loved their father/daughter relationship. I enjoyed Kat and the Strong Clan and how close they were without being overwhelming.

    Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime: Harlem. Throughout his entire time in exile, the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci - but one bullet changed everything. When his enemies tried to murder Gucci, they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all.

    Jada left home at the age of sixteen, running from her own demons and the horrors of physical abuse inflicted by her mother’s boyfriend. She partied hard, and life seemed good when she was with Born, the neighborhood kingpin whose name was synonymous with money, power, and respect. But all his love couldn’t save her from a crack addiction. Jada goes from crack addict and prostitute to survivor and back again before she finds the strength to live for herself and come out on top.

    Dornetta says: "A very compelling story"
    "The Best Book in a REALLY LONG TIME!!!"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, holds your attention from beginning to end!!


    What other book might you compare White Lines to and why?

    Thugs and the Women who love them by Wahida Clark because it's the same game just a different view but a realistic take on life in the streets. Plus you become so engrossed with the characters you feel like they are real people and you really go thru the emotional rollercoaster with them!


    What does Allyson Johnson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She wasn't a good fit to me because I felt like she made the characters sound Southern instead of East coast but she was still pleasant to listen to.


    If you could take any character from White Lines out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Born and Ms. Ingrid because I'm curious to know how she truly felt about her decisions, Leo's decisions and Born's choices in life. As for Born I'm curious about how he thought it was a good idea to just walk away from Jada.


    Any additional comments?

    I really loved this book!! It truly showed the mind of an addict and it shows you how it's not so easy to get that monkey off your back but when you put your mind to it you can eventually get it off. Also this was set during the time I was growing up and how we thought it so cool to be a D-boy's girl but this shows that everything that glitters is TRULY NOT GOLD!! Good job Ms. Brown!!
