One of Ms Stringer's best series!! Can't wait to see whose head Red's gonna mess up next. GREAT SERIES!! Yes, I know these books are fictional, but the scary part is, women like this character?? EXIST!! If you haven't read Dirty Red, trust me, you'll be hooked!! Truly hard to put down!!
I actually enjoyed this follow up more than the original book. It had so much action and revenge. I loved it. I found myself really rooting for Bacon this time around though. And Q, whose name seem to bounce around between Quentin and Quincy, I loved him in this book too, I kept waiting for him to find out just how DIRTY Red was. This is a really nice read, I finished it in a day when I usually only read my books for a couple hours a day and it takes 5 days to finish.
I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it if you have read Dirty Red. I just wish the author did a better job at refreshing the reader's memory. She wrote about some incidents and people and because it has been awhile since I read Dirty Red, I could not remember what happened.
Other than that, the book was very interesting and fast paced and I hope there will be a sequel soon.
Okay, by now everyone knows i am growing bored with the sequels, prequels and trilogies, and of course this book did not disappoint me in disappointing me with yet another cliffhanger. I just knew it wouldn't wrapped it all up in a nice package. Now all that being said:
There was no Redemption in Red. If there was I missed it. Red was and still is out only for Red!!! Amazing I was caught up in the book. Some parts felt rushed and stupid. The whole Terry getting off scot free. Not likely, and then Mekel taking her back??? No way. Mekel having an I can't forgive you additute about Kera not taking care of herself and giving the baby alcohol fetal syndrome when he didn't even want the baby. And it's amazing how Bacon and Red stole from each other. I don't what to give away the ending (or better yet the beginning to the next book) but I was blown away. Wow..........
if you can ignore some of the over the top actions like Zeke's posioning with a visine bottle (huh) and just get caught up in the action like a BET orginal Movie of the Week then it makes for a good read.
This book was pretty decent. I liked the fact that everything I expected did not happen and it was full of surprises. some of the things didn't make sense (how does someone kill someone with Visine?). and some things were over the top but it was enjoyable. I read it in one day because I was so caught up with what might happen to Red and the end is the reason this book gets a "4"
WoW! I really enjoyed this story; to me it was better then the first. Reading the other reviews almost discouraged me from purchasing this sequel, but I'm glad I decided to read it for myself, "Don't knock it until you try it!" This story was full of drama and suspense! Though the ending was a bit of a bite, I'm guessing there will be a Part 3. The story stayed on track and Red was just as "Dirty" as she was in the first book and even "DUTTY'eR" if you ask me. I recommend it and I hope V.Stringer keeps up the good work!!
