Drop Dead, Gorgeous

Lonnie Adebayo, best friend to Desdimona Green, is a walking, talking billboard for the old adage “You can’t keep a good woman down.” But Jordan Gatewood has done so much more than just try to keep her down. He made a huge mistake when he put his hands on her, thinking that he could get away with it - but he made an even bigger mistake by not making sure she was dead before he left that house. Finding Jordan’s secret half-brother is just the beginning of Lonnie’s plot for revenge.

    "No more chances boo"

    I bought this book in hopes that I could change my mind about this author and all I can say is that I will not buy another book by JD Mason. The story started off introducing too many people, so all through the story your like ummmm who is doing what to whom damn I'm lost so let me go back and listen again so I can get it whats going on. NO INDEED THIS IS NOT AN AUTHOR FOR ME.

    "Boring........."
    Would you try another book from J. D. Mason and/or Cary Hite?

    Yes I would read another book by J.D Mason but not with Cary Hite. Cary Hite is boring and dry. He lacks emotion and I don't like him reading for women.


    What was most disappointing about J. D. Mason’s story?

    It was a little redundant. He just kept recapping from the first book. This one was long and drawn out. It story just keeps dragging on it could have been only one book. A part 2 was not needed.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He was boring and lacked emotion a lot of times.


    What character would you cut from Drop Dead, Gorgeous?

    They were all boring. I really enjoyed the first book. There was no need for a part 2

    I love to listen good books. African American urban literature is my favorite. I hope to see them in more BoGo and discount sales.

    Story
    "They all fall down!"

    I really enjoyed the 2nd installment in this trilogy. My only complaint was that there were so many characters to keep up with, found myself a little confused sometimes and rewinding to make sure! I love the narrator, have listened to many done by him, but I felt he kinda added to my confusion! With all that being said I still enjoyed the storyline and was very sad when Lonnie was killed, but hopefully Mr. Jordan Gatewood will get what's coming to him!

    Story
    "Good book, great sequel with action, sex - love and hate"

    I enjoyed storyline, action, sex. It had all components of a good book. For having done 25 years in prison, Miss Green is too docile. Lonnie didn't have to get raped and shot. Lonnie should have shot Jordan in the groin and he should have been confined to a wheelchair and raped multiple times in jail while waiting trial.
