Three things about Consequences stand out in a good way: (1) The main character's personality was very well-developed, 2) the storyline was unpredictable, and (3) narration was good. On #1, the main character was an unlikeable woman with no redeeming qualities. I disliked the woman so much that I had to remind myself that she was merely a character in the story. On #2, There were so many twists and turns that it was impossible to get bored. On #3, narration was seamless. There were no odd pauses, loud inhaling, or anything even remotely similar. Overall, Consequences is a good, fun, memorable story that is perfect for temporarily escaping one's own problems.
It you don't like...change it!
I have read several other books by Sasha Campbell and enjoyed her stories. This one was no different. I would recommend reading the other books to this series first, as this is the last book. Good story and characters are a mess.
I loved this one. The narrators did an excellent job. I must admit I wasn't to fund of Netta. Its crazy that there are actually chicks out there like her. All in one amazing story and performance. You won't be disappointed at all.
I used to whistle while I worked. Now I read a book!
The Drama continues! This story picks up 3 or 4 years from the previous story. But they can be read independently. The 2 narrarators really bring life and attitude to the characters, and their over-the-top antics. The storyline kept me cracking up and wondering "What's next?"
This is definitely a keeper and I will continue to follow this author. The only thing that made me mad, was Trinette's reconcilliation with her husband. Huh!? Is he crazy? Had me shaking my head in amazement.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I got this book because I loved the first book. The sequel was a complete surprise to me. In the first book I was able to love Nikki and Trinnette despite their flaws but in this book I just couldn't find any love or sympathy for Trinnette, her selfishness and catty behavior made we want to go postal on her most of the time.
Nikki threw me for a loop because I left the 1st novel thinking she would share the truth with Donovan and they would work through it. To find out she had lied was not realistic especially since there was a trial. What rock did Donovan hide under that he never found out about what happened in the past? I also didn't feel an emotional connection with Nikki in this book but I can't really put my finger on why that is.
This book was worth the listen, although I would probably wait to purchase it when it's on sale. I would love to know if there will be another novel for these ladies as the ending of both their stories could easily develop into another book but I really feel their story should be done.
