As the pampered wife of Frankie Bingham, Camille wants for nothing. After all, Frankie and their life together are her whole world. So Camille tries not to be bothered by his closeness with his coworker and dear friend Gillian. But it soon becomes clear that Camille's suspicions are correct. When his indiscretions become a public matter, Camille is pushed to a dangerous breaking point that spells disaster for them all.
Camille's sister, Misa, is newly divorced and clueless about men. She smothers men with phone calls, emails, and pops up unannounced at their homes. She hacks into their voicemail and email and causes drama. So when she sets her sights on Baron, he has no idea what hit him. Will her quest to win his heart cost her everything?
Dominique Storms appears to have it all - a great career, a beautiful New York condo and a gifted teenaged daughter. Her only problem is that the man she loves is incarcerated. While trying to juggle the demands of motherhood, work, and friendships, she manages to make her man, Jamel, a priority in her life. But is he doing the same? And is she too distracted to notice what is going on with her daughter?
Latoya Blake seems to be the one who has life all figured out - that is, until some skeletons are discovered in her closet. When her well-put-together façade crumbles, will she crumble as well?

"Brown makes these desperate women amazingly sympathetic even as they make foolish choices, and the same goes for Frankie B., despite his appalling mistreatment of Camille. It all adds up to some seriously twisted problems leading to some cliffhanging shockeroos that undoubtedly mean a sequel is on its way." (Publishers Weekly)
The story kept me engaged but the narrator mis-pronounced and stumbled over words. She took away from the experience for me.
Great Listen, really fellow listeners! The only recommendation I have is do not even start this book without getting the second one at the same time. You are going to want to continue becuase the story ends without an ending. I used my last credit and when it was over I purchased the second story right away cause i couldn't wait till the 14 of this month.. lol get the second book
I loved LaToria and Dominick's parts as friends
Steven being taken out
She did not read very well she ran through sentences ran over paragrahs just kinda blended everything together.
Yes, it was very hard to put down
I really like eveything about this book except the reader she could have done a lot better
This book really started off slow for me, I guess it's because selfish characters really turn me off. It started to get better when you listen to part 2 of this audio book, it's actually when things start to heat for the characters. When you get to the end, your going to be like what the F!@#!!!!! Thank God the sequel is on here lol!!!!!!!
I just realized this is the author of white lines my 2nd favorite book ever. I looked past this book 3 different times before settling and glad I did. This book was great from start to finish and I am listening to it again. Its perfect, not the norm, realistic and a must read. I can't wait to read the next. I love Tracy Brown's work. She is the greatest out. The story line kept my attention, wasn't all over the place and gave enough detail to know about all the characters. I have sent an email blast to all my friends urging them to read this. You must read this book beating the urban fiction reads by a long run.
I attempted to read this book twice and both times I could not get past the second chapter. The narration was deplorable. Regrettably the narrator Napiera Groves can only read what the author had written. I found the propensity of Hip Hop language and phraseology most annoying and distracting to such a degree that I could not connect or identify with the characters. Save your credits for something that does not paint such a stereo typical portrait of African Americans.
Excellent read. Kept my attention from beginning to end, what an ending it was... I would love to see a second book to this story.
Author did a great job!!!
