Wife and mother of three, I've enjoyed reading since I was a child. I REALLY enjoy audible books because it allows me to multitask.

    Nursing wealthy businessman Chicago DuBois back to health was the least Loretta Lovelace figured she could do. After all, it was her bet that set off Loretta’s stalker - and put Madison’s husband at death’s door. And with Madison out of the country, Loretta couldn’t resist looking after Chicago’s interests and reigniting his passion for life - in and out of bed. But now Madison wants to take back what’s no longer hers, and that’s a mistake Loretta plans to make her regret. With a baby on the way and a family empire to save, Madison knows it’s past time to make some tough decisions.

    Would you try another book from Mary B. Morrison and/or Cary Hite?

    I usually like most of Mary B Morrison's work & Cary Hite's but this was just sub par, point blank period, exclamation point. I'm sure I'm going to give her another try but shes gonna have to step up her game.


    Has I’d Rather Be with You turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.....I love the genre, this just a bad read....


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He did the best with what he had to work with


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I’d Rather Be with You?

    I would cut all the all jail scenes, the hospital scenes of the baby being born, too many to name, I probably would have gone in a total different direction with this whole book.


    Any additional comments?

    HATED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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.
