I listened to this book on Audible. The narrator did a good job.
I was expecting a psychological thriller just as the title suggests. This was more of a wrong place, wrong time situation and reincarnation . Maybe part 2 will fulfill what the title and summary suggest.


The listen time is 3:58. I am at the 2:51 mark and have yet to see any evidence of the complex killer(Wheeler) or the female lead (Jenny) being assaulted by horrific snippets. Although, Bob being a jerk was the one thing that stood out.

Momma's Baby Daddy's Maybe is an Essence best seller by popular author Jamise L. Dames. This steamy tale revolves around the lives of the three Jacobs siblings: wild Kennedy, corporate Simone, and handsome Derrick.

I listened to this book on Audible. The narrator did a good job as usual. However, on the production side, I would have liked for them to edit out the swallowing, lip smacks and extended pauses.

Of an 8 1/2 hour listen only 1 hour of it had something of value or interest. Maybe, because the title hinted at so much more. The few moments of interest were treated as mere blips on the interest radar. They were glossed over so quickly that if you weren't paying attention you missed it. 5 hours in and finally something to keep my attention-a heartbreaking event and then 6 1/2 hours a death, an assault, a betrayal and a birth. The dialogue between these young female characters felt like an episode of the Golden Girls more times than not and not in a funny comedic way. The characters were difficult to connect to in this tale.

This is definitely a bedtime story. It lulls you to sleep with its painfully slow pace and lack of movement. Maybe I'm not the author's target audience, but I couldn't help feeling this watered down drama was meant for those who are in their golden years.

Listened to the book on Audible
Pros
• Narrator
• Norman
• The last 28 minutes or the epilogue which began at 9 hours and 21 minutes into the 9 hour 51 minute tale

Cons
• Poor transitions
• Lack of chemistry between characters
• Slow pace
• Missed potential that the title alludes to
• Confusing timelines
• Wordy and lengthy flashbacks

Random

• This book had real potential, but it missed the mark on almost every level. The author had a good group of characters and the perfect setup for a hot read, but failed. This story should have picked up after a prologue that included flashback of how she got to the point of being pregnant. The epilogue should have been chapter 1. Because this was unfortunately was the best part of the story.

• Hmm Terrence’s reason for marrying her was almost ludicrous. He saw her and she was pretty so he wanted to marry her and have kids?

the author did a good job of giving you a complete story with room to grow. however, the narrator didn't quite deliver. and it was only when she attempted to perform certain characters with accents. you had to listen really closely to understand what was being. said.

There's definitely something magical about her, but little does he know just how correct that first impression is. Single mom Marigold Williams finds herself instantly attracted to Wyatt but doesn't dare tell this handsome human that she's a witch and things in Nocturne Falls are a little spookier than he suspects. He’s just a nice guy who’s offered to be her plus one.

Vanessa, Vanessa, Vanessa-She ws something else and that song, Take your Man was funny as hell. She had no shame. I can't say too much without spoiling the book, but needless to say she was a standout character. These ladies brought the drama and the men didn't disappoint either. The author delivered a well structured tale of woe. Almost gave you a soap opera feel and it was good. I already pre-ordered book 2. P.s. the narrator did a good job.

Siblings Brenda and Brian Andrews think their good looks, money, and charm should afford them the pick of the litter among the abundant singles scene in Atlanta, and they've never been too shy to sample. Unfortunately, all pawns in their single life games aren't playing nicely, nor are they willing to take being manipulated lying down. As though they aren't dealing with enough, the doorway to hidden family secrets is suddenly slung open when their alcoholic, philandering, and often abusive father's body is discovered floating in their parent's pool.

Much like with books 1 & 2, the story had an extremely slow buildup only to fizzle out at the end. Being left with an open leaves room for another book or spinoff. I hope that doesn't happen. The continuation of Jaqueline's antics already bordered on the ludacris in this book.
