I'll be fair and say this book kept me wanting to hurry and get to the end so I could find out whose husband was the cheater! I couldn't wait for it all to come together and make sense at the end. Needless to say, I never found out. After having to listen to an overwhelming amount of very graphic "love" scenes that seemed to take up the majority of the book (and yes, I like a "love" scene EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE but this was ridiculous), the author leaves us hanging in the end. I got to the point where I'd roll my eyes when ANOTHER love scene started up. I would speed through it just so I could hear more of the actual story. When the narrator said "The End" at the end of the book I wanted to throw my phone out the window b/c I was so mad I'd sat through the entire book waiting to find out who did it in the end. This would have been a much better book if it would have had some closure. But you are left wondering with no real clues even to help you guess. Ughhh...very mad. And I feel like I need a shower to wash away all the filth.
The people were very real!!!
Mistress no more
Yes she was great
I wouldn't change it...:...
Very much enjoyed!!!!!
How many times do you use the word "huskily"? I found it incredibly annoying.
And I'm starting to get annoyed with black writers playing emphasis on the same things: skin complexion, long hair, and the constant mention of brands.
The story idea is interesting but the ending is a let down.
I just enjoy books!
I enjoyed this book and it kept me wanting more, the drama the drama oh boy what drama, Great read.
It you don't like...change it!
This story got better as it went on. At first...I was kinda into it but kept listening cause I wanted to know who's husband it was. Then as it slowly got better the end left me hanging cause I had to find out what was next...so I quickly purchased the second book.
This story goes up and down, up and down. Meaning it slow for a minute....then it's good....then slow again...then you like OMG, this is good. Overall good story...but don't be surprise it you start like..."ok, not sure if I'm gonna like this."
Great story line. The end left me with more questions than answers. You will definitely pick up part two after this.
Soozi Cheyenne's performance was not that great. It sounded like she was smacking most of the time.
I would definitely take Jackson to dinner. He sounds sexy as hell!
This narrator was not the best. She smacked which was highly annoying. She also had inappropriate pauses. This almost made me request a refund on the book. I'm not done with the book and just could not wait to vent my fruistration with this narrator. If I find it too unbearable I will just get a refund and read it for myself.
Message from a Mistress
I believe this novel by Author Niobia Bryant, was her debut novel, and she knocked it out the ball park with this work, which was cleverly written.
My version of this novel was an audiobook purchased from Audible.com. It was narrated by (the seductive voice of), Scoozi Cheyenne. It plays 8 hours and 44 minutes, which is about the average time 8 to 10 hours, and it's Publisher: Recorded Books.
I loved the way Author Niobia weaved this tale because the mistress within this story took a back seat to her three friends Jaime, Renee and Aria who all had some deep dark secrets which was unknown to each other but the mistress who had highjacked one of their husband's.
The character development was excellent. The plot was driven by curiosity because you wanna know who's husband wasn't coming home, while the subplots revealed the reasons of how a backstabbing bitch was afforded the opportunity to place them in their situation.
What situation, you asked? Well, these three women, Jaime, Renee and Aria all received a text message from their friend, Jessa while having a spa day. The message told them that she had been sleeping with one of their husbands, and that they were in love, they brought a house together, and that him and her was running off to live happily ever after. That's the situation I'm talking about.
These women sum up their lives in the few agonizing hours afforded to them before they learn which of their husband's will not be returning from their fishing trip. -And you know what the mind can do to you when haven't been living right. You know what I'm talking about. That little affair you had, that walk on the wild side, lying on your ovaries, and little stuff like that can really weight on ones emotions, and it does.
The writing is clever, the characters are real, the situation happens more often than not. I gave this novel 4 stars out of 5. It will surly entertain you, and make you wonder about how you living.
I have listened to other books by Niobia Bryant and listened to Soozi Cheyenne and have enjoyed them.
I will try something else. This particular story was so long and drawn out and was all over the place. It was hard to get into the story.
It seemed to me that the book was drawn out where things should have progressed and or shifted a bit.
