When she is brutally murdered, Sean isthrust into a cold world all alone, until an old friend of his mother takes Sean under his wing and introduces him to a life of drug dealing at its highest level.

What made the experience of listening to The Day the Streets Stood Still the most enjoyable?

The narrator Cary Hite as always is GREAT! The author JaQuavis Coleman too is GREAT. His writing truly takes you into each character and I couldn't wait to read the ending of this book which was truly unexpected. 5 stars all around from me for this one!

What other book might you compare The Day the Streets Stood Still to and why?

Any book with this author and narrator.

What about Cary Hite’s performance did you like?

I was able to truly separate and keep up with each character.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me think of just how blessed I have been and that this life style is probably true for many people.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next audio book by JaQuavis Coleman

  • Payback Ain’t Enough

  • Payback, Book 3

Picking up where the suspenseful Payback with Ya Life left off, we’re plunged back into the hip-hop drama, where the men are hot and dangerous, the women know their shoes from their Choos, and they will stop at nothing to get what they want. In a game of power and intrigue where the stakes are high and the rewards are dazzling, the losers are gonna discover there’s always a price to pay.

What would have made Payback Ain’t Enough better?

Either an additional narrator with a little more base in their voice, or a male narrator along with the female narrator Nicole Small

Has Payback Ain’t Enough turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, not at all

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I couldn't keep up with the characters and would have to rewind to see if it was a male or female character speaking.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

Any additional comments?

I did listen to the book to the end, but was disappointment for the many times I was lost as to which character was talking.

Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police. Something awful has happened - something impossible, unthinkable. Abbie, Winnie, Serena, and Bryah are arrested and accused of the foulest crime imaginable.

If you could sum up Guilty Wives in three words, what would they be?

Really, really good

The twists and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. Seldom was it what I thought it would be.

What about January LaVoy’s performance did you like?

The characters, both male and female were convincing.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

I am listening to it again as I write these comments. Truly enjoyed Guilty Wives.
