  • Take Your Pleasure Where you Find It

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 37 mins)
    • By J. D. Mason
    • Narrated By Erica B. Peeples

    Freddie “the Cheerleader,” Phyllis “the Class President,” and Renetta “the Fat Girl” ended their friendship back in high school. So it’s a surprise to all of them when they end up connecting at their 30-year high school reunion. They’ve all changed since those harsh yet tender high school years, and each one of them has her own deliciously scandalous secret. But when those secrets threaten to come to light—and possibly tear apart their less than perfect, but generally content lives—they band together in their sisterhood to stand and fight to keep what’s theirs

    Dream says: "NO SIR!"
    "Terrible Narration"
    Would you try another book from J. D. Mason and/or Erica B. Peeples?

    I would read another book by J.D. Mason for sure. I thought the story was interesting at best. I didn't think the title fit the story but that is something I can deal with. The characters were well developed and I felt it flowed pretty well. I didn't enjoy the narration by Erica B. Peeples at all. She paused when there shouldn't have been a pause. She mispronounced several words in the words which caused confusion in what I was listening to. Her voice was ok but I feel that she needs more practice before making this a full time career. Her vocabulary seems limited. I haven't seen the book in print but every word she mispronounced I knew right away what she was supposed to say. I almost stopped listening to the book because she was just that terrible.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the characters and I also liked the story line.

    What didn’t you like about Erica B. Peeples’s performance?

    See my previous comment about the narrator's performance. Like I said before, it was sub-par and could use some polishing. Maybe she should practice reading aloud before recording it. I guess there's no editing done before the final copy is presented to us. If there was, I sure her errors would have been caught.

    Could you see Take Your Pleasure Where you Find It being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No. It wasn't that exciting. It might make it to Lifetime.

  • God Don't Play

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 49 mins)
    • By Mary Monroe
    • Narrated By Patricia Floyd
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    In God Don't Play, trouble comes a woman's way just when she thinks she's finally got it all figured out. Annette Goode couldn't be happier with where she is in life. She has a good job, a comfortable home, and a wonderful husband and daughter. But tough times lie ahead. Out of the blue, Annette begins receiving anonymous hate mail and threatening phone calls. It seems her life isn't as settled as she thought, and demons from her past surface in unexpected ways.

    Mary says: "Interesting"
    "Entirely too predictable"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't think anybody would enjoy it more. Maybe a teenager who hasn't experienced much in life yet. It was just too pedictable. I knew who the perpetrator was once she started talking about that backpack.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Mary Monroe again?

    I like Mary Monroe and enjoy lots of her other books. I would and will listen to her again.

    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader from the first book, Denise Burse, was a better reader. She had more passion and doesn't smack her lips every five seconds like Patricia Floyd. That is so annoying and I had to stop listening several times because it just became too annoying for me to continue.

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

    I like that the characters were still there and that Rhoda and Annette are still friends. I wish that Annette wasn't so gullible and easy to take advantage of. It seems like in the previous book she was a lot stronger character.

    Any additional comments?

    Nothing can be changed now the book is already in production.

  • Little Black Girl Lost 2

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 3 mins)
    • By Keith Lee Johnson
    • Narrated By Bennett Beresford

    Teenage beauty Johnnie Wise has seen her share of hardship. Sold into prostitution at an early age, she is an accessory to a murder that sparks terrible race riots. Her boyfriend, Lucas, wants to give her a better life, but Johnnie has a powerful effect on men, and gangster Napoleon Bentley will stop at nothing to have her.

    Mishawna says: "Loved it!"
    "Loved it!"

    In this second installment to Little Black Girl lost I was still feeling the pain that Johnny felt and I was on the edge of my seat daily wondering what would happen next. It is the perfect prequel to the first and I cant wait to listen to part III. I am totally excited about this book. Johnny is someone we can all relate to as young black women. Keith Lee Johnson has outdone himself once again.

  • Saved Folk in the House

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 26 mins)
    • By Sonnie Beverly
    • Narrated By Sharon Washington

    It's in her small Virginia hometown where Zakia experiences the success she's always wanted and the change that threatens it. For her friend Nikki, this close-knit village inspires a new life, in which a younger man and unexpected conflicts test her mettle. And for young LaKishsa, fresh from the hood, here is where she grapples with her past and plans her future.

    Natalie says: "Pass on this one"

    I had a hard time finishing this book because it was so slow and somewhat unrealistic to me. I did not like all the references to church and God. How are these women supposed to be so godly but they are divorced from their mates. How is divorce what the church would want for them. The second story took the cake because to me this woman was not making good decisions at all. I will not read another book by this author.

  • Pleasure Seekers

    • UNABRIDGED (12 hrs and 17 mins)
    • By Rochelle Alers
    • Narrated By Gabra Zackman

    From national best-selling author Rochelle Alers comes a sizzling, sensuous story of three diverse 30-something women whose lives are forever changed when they are invited to join the exclusive world of the Pleasure Seekers.

    Scottie in TX says: "Interesting Story"
    "Not what I thought"

    This book was not what I thought it would be. The reader who sounded country and not African American was the first mistake that was made. I almost stopped listening when I heard her voice because she is not believable as a black female. She mispronounces words and is not ghetto enough in my opinion. The book did not have enough romance and hardcore sex. If she didnt want to write about the sex then this book shouldnt be in the erotica section of the downloads. This book did not hold my interest as many other books I have listened to recently. I did not feel a connection to the characters and did not see them as real people. I will probably not buy anything further from this author. I will definitely never listen to another book read by this narrator. My money was wasted on this novel.
