When it comes to sizzling urban drama, Sasha Campbell is at the very top of the game. In Scandals, Monica Houston is a newly divorced mom who makes ends meet as an exotic dancer at Scandalous, the hottest club around. But if the ex finds out, she runs the risk of losing her kids.
Meanwhile, sexy dancer Robin Wright thinks she might be in over her head when her sister is sent to jail and her nephew is thrust into her care. Unprepared for this new role, Robin finds herself falling for the kid’s “big brother”, even as she tries to prove her sister’s innocence.

I liked that it touches on a different culture of people and it was realistic and didn't over exaggerate and offset stereotypical topics with regular people of the same culture, what I didn't like is the lack of description of things such as food and surrounding to paint a better picture
I would try another book just because it is different than what I usually listen to
I like the tag team narration
I would enjoy a follow up book, I actually prefer sequals and book series
My favorite author is Jr ward and Molly harper, they are very much more discriptive but honestly not realistic as this book and this book hits closer to home as a black man, so I would love to see more of this author
I listened to this book while I was visiting Saipan. I must say that my trips around the island went very quickly while listening, so I was entertained, but....thats where my compliments stop.
In my opinion, this is a popcorn book.....Lots of fluff but not much substance. I've known a couple of strippers in a past life, and while Scandals is entertaining, it doesn't hold up when compared to reality. I found both characters unrealistic in this regard. Despite other reviews, I found the plot twists predictable. If nothing else the book is an interesting and entertaining read that kept my attention throughout the book. The performance was above par and very professional!
I lover of street literature!
It ranks high it was a great book
Monica waking up to Ms. Rayna
I didn't like the readers. I've heard them both before. The voice of Robin did not match her character, she was described way to pretty to have such a heavy voice. The voice of Monica over reads and is always to dramatic which is the way she reads every book I've heard her narrate, she over emphasis her words and speak so hard that it becomes annoying.
Both Monica and Robin are great characters
Despite the readers the book was still great.
I cannot tell you what kind of story the author has told because, I could not get past the awful reading. This is the worst reading I have heard on Audible. The readers pace is too hurried and the inflection sounds trite and artificial.
Perhaps it is a good story. I don't know, could not force to get that far.
