Sasha Campbell’s sizzling debut follows Nikki Truth, a radio talk show host who has no trouble dishing out relationship advice on the air, yet can’t seem to follow that advice in her own life. With Nikki’s marriage on the rocks and her husband overseas, her best friend Trinette urges her to seek happiness elsewhere. But once Nikki realizes she’s not ready to move on, she may have already lost her husband for good.

“These characters leap off the page …” (Lutishia Lovely)
I didnt know what to expect from this author, but Im glad I gave this book a chance because I enjoyed it so much, loved the twist and turns. Great book all the way through!!
I would only try another book if I was out of anything else good to read and it was cheap
Someone other than a Yale /Harvard theater major, trying to sound urban
Disappointment. Everything about this book was a cliché. I was have why though the book and I already knew the ended, better yet I knew exactly what was going to happen next before the next chapter. Do not get me wrong it was an OK read if you're in to Love and Hip Hop Atlanta or the Housewives of Atlanta, but I have read much better Urban novels. Just hated the fact that everything about the characters were a stereotype like the man in the club with the gold tooth button down shirt and "nappy" hairy chest hair. Immediately this brought to mind a character from the Martin Lawrence show from back in the days or the brother name Cool aid (really!?). There were losts of rolling my eyes moment while listening to this book. And please do not get me started on the performances or should I say the narrator. They were so “proper” that when they tried to sound urban or “street” it just came across awkward. Over all I just was not feeling it.
the suspense ws great...narrators did a good job helping me follow along.....
Nikki...she had it together.....Netta was also great
Not if it was a similar attempt to distort the English language. The dialogue was an overt attempt to present ghetto- like circumstances but did not enhance the story.
I'm not sure if they were intolerable or the dialogue made them sound that way.
I can't say.
No this was awful.
No, I love Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown, and Danielle Steele; This was nothing like those. It was all about what car this woman drove, and what brands of clothing she had on. It wasn't about romance it was about status. The language was all slang and left something to be desired. There is a quote :I walk around like my shit don't stink, because it don't." It was ridiculous.
No one, because no one should ever have to listen to this book.
All of them.
Not worth the money.
I used to whistle while I worked. Now I read a book!
This is always a hard question to answer, as I have read so many and diverse books through Audible. But I would rank it pretty high for this type of book. I was surprisingly pleased by this purchase.
I think Trinette was one of my favorites. You could definitely understand why she behaved the way she did, even though she was in a very vicious cycle. She was trying to overcome her past abuse by using in her words "the power of the p****" She was so determined to be "In Control" that she was losing control.
They really individualized the characters. You knew who was speaking just by the timber and attitude they gave.
I'll admit, I definitely laughed out loud and I did mist up a bit in parts. The scene with Trinette and her mother really got to me.
This ones a KEEPER. Trust and Believe I plan to go back and read the previous books as well.
To have charachters with some character.
I was bored and grossed out by the greed.
The performance, in terms of vocals, was fine.
I can't listen to more - am halfway through Part 1.
