    I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.

    "Interesting"

    I'm on the fence as to how well I liked this story. The narrator was great but some of the story lines were unbelievable. The first part of the book was drawn out too long and I didn't feel engaged in the story at all. I had to listen to the first part twice to really get an understanding and follow along. It was an ok story but I wouldn't recommend it to friends and I doubt I will listen to this book again.

    "Not impressed"

    Basically this review is going to be short even though the read was long as hell. I didn't really get into the book until 5 hours into the book. That's when all the drama started to unravel. I feel as if this book outlined the first book very well but it was way too much. The author wanted you to feel for the charcters the way she portrayed them in her first book but it was an overkill. That Cleo was a bad chick though especially in her stalker mode and then to find out at the end about the baby smh the truth came out but in the end the true baby's mom got the last word and the child she wanted. The narrator did a good job I like Miss Floyd and how she can transition you from character to character. The most memorable character will be Lily, she seemed to be running from Jake throughout the whole book but when you realize the reason why it will blow you away. All in all this book could have been better but it wasn't a bad read it helps open up peoples eyes to things that may happen when people become famous and have to live in the spotlight. It was a little boring though in my opinion.

    Any additional comments?

    This book is the sequel to Platinum and it was a very interesting story. I don't know why anyone would want to date a musical artist. The money is good but all money aint good money. This book will make you think twice about getting into a relationship with someone in the industry. Worth the credit.

    "Good pass time book.. Nothing that's a must..."

    The book was ok but it was the typical storyline of this caliber of book... Didn't see the surprise about Lily.... I didn't become uninterested but I wouldn't tell anyone about the story unless we were talking about a similar story.
