Publisher's Summary

Alexandria, Renee, and Danielle are three very different women with one thing in common: their late husband! Learning that her estranged husband has passed away is the biggest shock of Danielle Timberlake-Foster's life - until she learns that she wasn't his only wife. Though Danielle and Marc were separated, she believed they were about to reconcile and start a family. Rocked by betrayal, Danielle sees her dreams slipping away. Until her brother's best friend, Tristan Adams, offers support, comfort - and a chance to have the child she's always wanted. Danielle is drawn to Tristan's strong, sensual nature, but she wed Marc in haste and regretted it. Is she about to repeat her mistake? Or will a marriage of convenience turn into the soulful union she's always longed for?

    "Just ok"

    This book was just okay. It was very predictable, but if you just want something to listen to then I recommend it.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    For a short story yes, I can say that my time was well-spent.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I felt that the story was a little rushed, everything happened so fast.


    What aspect of Savannah Richards’s performance would you have changed?

    She did ok for a short read.


    Could you see Just Desserts being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Well I'm sure any book that has a little potential can be made into a movie.

    "Really"

    Okay sometimes the things we find out about loved ones can completely leave you wondering whether or not you knew that person at all and then on those heals asking yourself who were they really and was anything that I know was it true. This is the case as in this story. One of the main characters has to truly struggle through the maze of deception and deceit left behind while trying to move on. A good romance about healing.

    I'm not too excited about this story. I haven't listened to the whole thing and am not in a hurry to get back to it.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes it was time well spent, but the story line was too predictable. The romance was


    Would you be willing to try another book from Brenda Jackson? Why or why not?

    Of course, I love Brenda Jackson and have already downloaded three other books!


    Did Savannah Richards do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Savannah Richards was a good narrator and I loved her voice inflection.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably download it but not necessarily go out to a theater to view it; then again, we don't spend money on going out to see movies anyway.

    "Could have done more..."

    Brenda creates great characters but for some reason she sells herself short by under developing them. I would have like to see the story begin during the deception phase by the husband. I would like to get into the mind of someone who would do such a thing. Also I felt like I didnt learn a lot about the other wives. Savannah is one of my favorite narrators but she does not have the voice to represent black characters. In my mind I made the characters white until Brenda described them and I had to chuckle.

    It was Ok...could've had more of a storyline. But if you're a Brenda Jackson fan (such as myself) it's good for a short love story.
