It will be impossible to determine where real life ends and fiction begins in this gripping novel. Inner Circle depicts the life of Evelyn Lozada’s off-camera alter ego, Eve Inez. Much like The Basketball WivesInner Circle reveals everything athletes’ wives live through, complete with the cheating, scandal, manipulation, and gossip. And this time, nothing is being held back.

None of the wives are prepared for how addictive their rich lifestyles can be, and they find themselves stooping to unimaginable levels of deception to preserve their social status.

    "Surprised but delightful"

    I am simply amazed that these reality stars are able to put together such a good story lines. This book was a good read and was well put together it kept me engaged and wanting to find out what will happen next. I know that I want to read the next book to find out what will happen to the main character and her best friend. There are vivid sexual scenes but this book isn't raunchy but is along the lines of being classy and interesting. The Narrator was very good and the twist and turns in the book will make you say WOW I wasn't expecting that.

    "Bubble Bath & Glass of Wine Book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure, this book was fun and had a good plot, it was worth the enjoyment of listening. I recommend a glass of wine and a hot bubble bath to complement the book.


    What about Nicole Small’s performance did you like?

    She sounded like Evelyn Lozada to me in a way, her voice was really great and she moved into and out of each charactor in a perfect manner! She was the highlight to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    There are sound effects in the book and I was not a huge fan of that, it was a bit cheesy, although I get that it added a movie like setting, I prefer to use my imagination.

    "!!!!Surprisingly a REALLY REALLY Good READ!!!!!!!!"

    I had no expectation, because I only know the author as a reality show personality. Well be not disappointed getting this book. It was really good. The narrator slammed this one.

    This book draws a picture of items seen on the BBW, but digs a little deeper, especially in character development. It’s about a group of women that form a club based on them being involved with athletes. The groups premise is protection from those outside the circle trying to get in, like, groupies and such. Get in by trying to get their men. (Eye roll, lol) They try to get pregnant for cash and a whole lot of other instances. I will stop here before I give it away. It’s not predictable but it is......It is real juicy at times.

    'Inner Circle' written by Evelyn Lozada....She got skills. (ebonically speaking). The book was surprisingly a very good read. Between her and Ashley and JaQuavis, Cash Money is doing their thing in the book arena well, similar to their music careers. I would definitely refer this book.

    "Pleasantly Surprised"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inner Circle to be better than the print version?

    YES


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twist at the end


    Which character – as performed by Nicole Small – was your favorite?

    Jackie


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    I'm definitely not a fan of Evelyn Lozada from Basketball Wives. She's not someone that I would have supported given her negative attitude and ghetto personality portrayed on the show. I didn't realize that she was the author of this book or else I would not have purchased it. I must say that I'm glad that I did because the book kept my interest from the start and I completed it the same day. I'm actually looking forward to the next edition of the book. Well worth the purchase and although I'm not a fan of her as a person. I am a fan of her writing. I hope the next book is just as interesting.

    "Not Bad"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. I wasn't in love with this book, but I would say that it was worth the time. The story was interesting enough. The narrator did a pretty good job.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Evelyn Lozada and Courtney Parker ? Why or why not?

    Yes. They kept the story going at a good enough pace that the reader doesn't have a chance to get bored.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The meeting with samaira when they gave her the check.


    Do you think Inner Circle needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. I would like to see how the friendship between Eve and amber played out. Also, I would like to see someone put Jackie in her place.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm not going to lie, the twist was a bit predictable. But for Evelyn not to be a professional writer, she did a decent job. I cared enough about what was going on to actually for opinions of each of the characters. I would have liked to see some justice takes place. To me a great book sets you up to dislike the villains and then gives them what they deserve. But I would check out the sequel if they decide to write one.

    "250 thousand"
    Where does Inner Circle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book was very good and due to the narration ranks very high. Story is plausible and kept my attention.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    EVE. She was as real as real can get.


    What about Nicole Small’s performance did you like?

    It felt like I was there watching the scenes unfold. She did great.


    If you could take any character from Inner Circle out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Not sure..all the men were players or held secrets.


    Any additional comments?

    Evelyn, you did good. I'm surprised. I must admit that I didn't expect much due to you character on BBW, but you pulled the story through. Looking for more from you.
