Publisher's Summary

An ambitious entertainment reporter, millionaire basketball player, desperate wife, scandalous groupie, and murderous stalker. Games Divas Play takes you inside the high-stakes world of professional sports, where everyone plays to win.

When Nia Bullock lands a job as editor-in-chief of the hot new magazine and web site DivaDish, she finds that her platinum dreams can quickly turn into a nightmare. Battling backstabbing colleagues and reeling from murderous threats, she must turn to an ex-boyfriend for help.

Vanessa King, the first lady of the NBA, is looking for a fresh start with her husband, Marcus, the new star point guard for the New York Gladiators who's as popular with the ladies as he is with hoops fans. Since marrying her college sweetheart, Vanessa has learned to deal with life with a professional athlete - the groupies, the paparazzi, and the unchecked ego of a man the sports world puts on a pedestal. When Laila James, self-proclaimed "Golden Goddess," sets her sights on Marcus and shops a reality show based on their affair - and then a dangerous stalker threatens his family - Vanessa turns to her best friend Nia to save her marriage and her life.

In the first book in the Diva Mystery Series, three women engage in a ruthless battle for love and the limelight, and soon learn what it really takes to stay on top.

    "It was ok"

    I have to be honest to say I liked the story, just not all of it. It didn't catch my attention until the last 2 hours of the book. The beginning was a lot of details I didn't care to know. I know it was the same narrator for all three characters but when she did Layla's voice I was so annoyed. I was distracted several times which isn't normal for me when I'm listening to a good book. I wouldn't recommend it but everyone has different opinions.

    Story
    "Starts out a little"basketball wives-ish""
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This books starts off very slow. It sounds like another basketball wives storyline. The mystery made it better even though I figured out one of the culprits. It got better as I listened.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was a nice ending. Doesn't leave you hanging


    How could the performance have been better?

    The Narrator was not very animated. I felt like she was reading to me instead of acting out the parts. There were a few times I got confused on which character I was listing too


    Did Games Divas Play inspire you to do anything?

    no

    Story
    "A whole Lotta drama but kept me listening"

    Even though I felt like I was listening to an episode of basketball wives the storyline was still enjoyable. The only thing I didn't like is all the name dropping of every piece of clothing and piece of jewelry and everything else the story would probably be half as long without all the name dropping. I didn't know many of the designers anyway so most of it was lost on me. I did like the various voices it made it more interesting to listen to. The end and left me kind of shaking my head but OK

    "Good listen"

    Only thing that really got on my nerves is having to give the name of every item that they are wearing. Please just say I'm putting on my tennis shoes or pink sweater . Who cares about what the name brand is!!!
