National best-selling author Keith Lee Johnson enjoyed breakout success for his novel Little Black Girl Lost. Now Johnson introduces Nelson Kennard, a former number-one NBA draft pick who blew his chance at the big time - and is about to lose the best thing that's ever happened to him, sexy school teacher Parris Stalls. Soon-to-be-dissed Nelson may have been a playa back in the day, but there's always another baller waiting in the wings.

I purchased this book after reading the reviews. It was okay but not all that. It would be enough to keep you entertained if you're driving long distance alone. In my opinion, the buck stops there. Thank you and have a nice day.

A few hot scenes are okay every now and then, but this was just too much. Some of the situations seemed unrealistic...totally and ridiculously unrealistic. However, if hot funky love is what you want, this one's for you.

It seems like a bunch of stuff going on...just stuff going on, with nothing spectacular AT ALL.There is no direction and no point to what's going on. The book has been broken into 2 parts for quicker downloading. I can usually go through an audiobook in 2 days. I have had this for almost a MONTH and I just finished PART ONE yesterday. I would not recommend this book or waste the time on it- unless your forgot to load your other audiobooks to your listening device and this is the ONLY thing you have for a lo-o-ong driving trip.

Best-selling author La Jill Hunt dishes the dirt in Old Habits Die Hard. Hunt focuses her attention on the fine ladies of the premier nail salon After Effex. Ya Ya, Camille, Taryn, and Monya bring the crazy drama as their love lives go for a rollercoaster ride.

I dont like the way it ended. There seemed to be too many loose ends. Perhaps this makes room for another book? There was too much going on...

I did not like this book. I listened to the first 30 minutes or so and it didnt do anything for me. It took me 2 months to finish it. I figured if I paid for it, I may as well listen to it. I think it was supposed to make you feel all warm and fuzzy but it didnt do it for me.
