Publisher's Summary

Less than three weeks from the moment 34-year-old Rhapsody Blue first set her eyes on 21-year-old Malcolm Washington, her life has been turned upside down. It was lust at first sight, and Rhapsody isn't going to let young Malcolm leave her presence without a promise to fulfill her fantasy.

Malcolm had no idea when he accepted Rhapsody's invitation to her bedroom that he was selling his soul to the devil. Malcolm thinks he can bed Rhapsody and simply walk away, but she is not one to settle for a one-night stand. Rhapsody goes to desperate measures to keep her cub extremely close to her. Gifting Malcolm a very expensive SUV, filling his belly with home-cooked meals, and funding a trip to Cancun are just a few of the tactics that Rhapsody uses to ensure that Malcolm spends his nights in her bed and no one else's. However, when Rhapsody finds a mysterious package on her doorstep containing proof of Malcolm's betrayal and deception, she seeks revenge and seals her own fate.

    Story
    "Had potential but super predictable, has spoilers"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Maybe a first time Audible listener


    Has The Ugly Side of Me turned you off from other books in this genre?

    The book could have been good, but major parts just weren't discussed, for example what happened to the girl Malcolm married, Raps found out about her, then they went to on vacation (I was confused by that). And the book was too unrealistic, all of this was supposed to happen in the span of about 3 weeks, they meet, "fall in love" get pregnant, and she's in jail.


    What three words best describe Lynnette Freeman’s voice?

    Fine


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The potential, but other than that no


    Any additional comments?

    There were not surprises, everything was super predictable, I thought since Malcolm was so against the pregnancy in the beginning and since he secretly got married, I thought he was going to poison Rasp on the trip or something, basically everything happened because of a scarf.

    Story
    "Emotionally exhausting and not in a good way"
    What would have made The Ugly Side of Me better?

    Character growth
    Backstory on why the heroine was who she was and why she treated people so horribly


    What was most disappointing about Nikita Lynnette Nichols’s story?

    As a reader, I was not sure what the author wanted her audience to gain/experience from this story.


    What didn’t you like about Lynnette Freeman’s performance?

    The delivery was extremely rough. The transition to the male character came across as if she was out of breath. She was just the wrong choice for this particular story


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disgust, disbelief


    Any additional comments?

    I added my review to Amazon as well. Below is my Amazon review

    This is my third book by this author, so I am aware of her talent and was ready to enjoy this book. I listened to this book on audio. I’m going to preface my review with the fact that maybe if I had read the book, the way the characters came across might have been different. I was exhausted after listening to this book. I know I am in the majority with how I felt after listening to this book, but again maybe this went over my head.

    The heroine was so despicable throughout most of the story that I struggled to complete it. I am not sure what the author’s intent was with this story. What did she hope her audience would gain, learn, experience from this tale? Maybe, the book went over my head. I felt disgust, disbelief back to disgust. I read the summary and I knew based on that there would be drama. I thought the storyline had potential.

    This felt like a teenage “love gone wrong” story. The over the top, erratic emotions, volatile actions, tantrums and conversations reinforced my belief that this was a young adult tale of what happens when you obsess and fabricate relationships that do not exist. I was even more certain that her mental instability went beyond the TS after the #2 incident at the doctor’s office, the vacation conversation with her boss, the airport incident and that was just a few examples.

    Questions or comments that popped up throughout my listen.
    1. How does a volatile, angry, mentally stunted & downright nasty person maintain a relationship of any kind whether it be personal or professional?
    2. What type of mental illness did the heroine suffer from that caused such negative reactions from her. This is not all from the TS.
    3. With the biting, sarcastic & overly dramatic attitude/responses is Rhapsody even capable of having an adult conversation?”
    4. She’s 34, but with the mental capacity of a teenager? Her interactions with everyone supports this assumption. Is this what readers are supposed to get from her?
    5. What happened in her history got her to this level of nastiness, insecurity & desperation?
    6. Even at Malcolm’s “youthful” idiotic decisions that were led by his “little head” still came across more mature than Rhapsody.
    7. Drama started from the on-set, danger signs and all and Malcom stayed. Materialism is a powerful beast.

    Pros
    Storyline had potential
    Malcom’s character rang true to the age that was set
    Rhapsody’s insecurity & desperation will be relatable for some

    Cons
    Heroine was utterly ridiculous most of the time
    Wordy, unnecessary details
    Rough narration delivery
    Certain scenes were disgusting

    "Uggh Boring!!"
    Would you try another book from Nikita Lynnette Nichols and/or Lynnette Freeman?

    The narrator voice is annoying


    What was most disappointing about Nikita Lynnette Nichols’s story?

    Why do we have to hear for 30 minutes about the shopping with her mother or her cooking spaghetti

    I struggled to finish the book it seemed like a lot of the content was just thrown in to stretch the story out.
