Excellent Sequel to Message from A Mistress.
I was so glad to finally find out who the cheating husband was. I was kind of surprised.
The story captured my attention and kept it through out. There was still a lot of drama and chaos centered around Jessa Bell. Not just for the couple that she came between, but the other two couples as well.
The story was filled with erotic episodes, funny scenes and jaw dropping "i know he didn't scenes.
On to Part III... Mistress, Inc....
In this book unlike the last one the characters do an excessive amount of flashing back to very recent conversations (my opinion.) Also the author spends a lot of time branding items, I notice this in many books of this type. I suppose that this will help some with visualization but it's a little annoying to me.
I cannot say for certain who I would cast instead; however I will say that I am able to easily identify errors in her delivery. She does an okay job of distinguishing one character from another.
Mistress No More
My, my, my this series is only getting better. As an author I wondered how Ms. Bryant was going to start this volume of the series, and than I wondered where the he'll will she take it? Well this author answered my questions and then some, and how so you asked? Well the life of the characters are driven by the storyline, the storyline is driven by the subplots, the subplots are defined and executed by the author's Character Development Skills. Poor Character Development leads to weak characters, undefined subplots, confusion, and sloppy execution of other elements needed to tell a good story. The author Ms. Bryant was able to take her characters and take this story into a direction I didn't consider and to that I say, "Bravo!"
My version of this novel was an audiobook purchased from Audible.com. It was narrated by (the seductive voice of the grown and sex), Scoozi Cheyenne (Ooo I got a thang for this woman). The book runs for 9 hours and 23 minutes, which is about the average time 10 hours audiobook (ruffly around or above 300 pages), and it was Published by: Recorded Books.
Now how did author Niobia craft this tale? Well do you remember those issues our 3 herons had back in, "Message from a Mistress?" Well those issues never did get resolved in the first book because the issues was used as pawns, but in this venture those same issues are strongholds which must be addressed. Now can you say 'drama.' Now I love me some drama, and a good damn cat fight, and the author severed me up a plate that left my belly full, and tongue dangling.
The three friends Jaime, Renee and Aria who all had some deep dark secrets which was unknown to each other back in the first book was now comforted with the realization that their perfect world and secrets lifestyles have crumbled and surfaced. Picking up the pieces and moving forward became a challenge for each all the women, and their mates.
The character development was excellent. Each person was unique and believable, although it was interesting to see the Wandering Husband, had undergone a personality change, well actually he displayed several personalities, but the author did established how he was capable of changing personalities within the first novel, which helped with making what was uncharacteristic, plausible. The plot was driven by the subplots of each woman's situation. Each subplot tension builder was on the mark, which climaxed the story to an explosive ending.
This is a series I actually like, and I don't like many. I gave this novel 5 stars out of 5. It was a smashed and a book which will draw you in and have you talking back to the pages. If you haven't read the, "Mistress Series," by Niobia Bryant and you like Romance Suspense and Drama, it's a must read series.
It you don't like...change it!
No real favorite character cause I like all the ladies....but ya girl Jessa needed a good ole fashion beat down if you ask me.
When Jamie's mother met Pleasure for the first time....OMG!
Yes...I clean the house, made a cake, cook dinner, and wash clothes while listen....I was so into it I just keep going doing stuff just I could finish listening to the story.
I enjoy this book more than the first...
I listen to different types of books so this one is quite different but the story kept me interested to the point of not wanting to turn it off. It rates pretty high on my 'LIKE' list.
Heather Goines - she kept it very real and obviously loved her daughter very much and unconditionally. She was clever and true to herself and non judgemental.
Kept the characters straight. Aria was talking with her mother but the narrator called her Renee.
Heather revealing that she was aware of her daughter's past.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend. It was a serious page turner that had more twists & turns, dips & flips than the newest rollercoaster at Six Flags Great Adventure....
That it tells the truth on what lies & secrets can do to relationships.
She makes the characters come to life...Great job Soozi!
Yes. This book answered many questions that needed to be answered.
Jaime, she neede to let loose and enjoy her life.
Just as good as message from a mistress.
Yes. I had strong reactions laughing and feelings of sadness.
