Nursing wealthy businessman Chicago DuBois back to health was the least Loretta Lovelace figured she could do. After all, it was her bet that set off Loretta’s stalker - and put Madison’s husband at death’s door. And with Madison out of the country, Loretta couldn’t resist looking after Chicago’s interests and reigniting his passion for life - in and out of bed. But now Madison wants to take back what’s no longer hers, and that’s a mistake Loretta plans to make her regret. With a baby on the way and a family empire to save, Madison knows it’s past time to make some tough decisions.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If it would've made more sense, stuff that happens in this book was so far fetched from real life, like what happened in court. it was just to stupid and unrealistic.

What was most disappointing about Mary B. Morrison’s story?

The most disappointing thing was this book didn't sound like something MBM would write, this wasn't the author people fell in love with BIG disappointment.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The Narrator did a job, but it would have been nice to have womam for the female parts.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes Chicago was smart enough to leave his stupid, selfish wife alone

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No, Not unless you can take the pain of hearing a story about a helpless scared child being sexually abused by someone who is suppose to love and protect her, also it was really graphic.

Which scene was your favorite?

I LOVED when Jillian's mother started kicking the SOB till he passed out....

Could you see A Deep Dark Secret being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes, sure it would be similar to the movie Precious. Who cares who the star should be I would never watch it.

Any additional comments?

This book was actually well written and the narrator was excellent but the thing that I just couldn't bare was the story and how real it was, so if you love reading KLR books she is still one of the best out. But I wish I never bought this audible. Even being someone who has never been through anything like that, it still piss me off knowing there are people out in the world like the Dad in this story.

It wasn't what I expected by reading the publisher summery I felt like I was listening to a different book, but it is a interesting story I would recommend this book. I just wish the summery was not so misleading it was somewhat right but I definitely expected a totally different story line.

Carl Weber is a New York Times best-selling author who’s made a name for himself with wildly entertaining works marked by his trademark wit and storytelling panache. In The Choir Director, Bishop T.K. Wilson is banking on dynamic new choir director Anthony Mackie to reverse the failing congregation’s fortunes. But while Anthony’s got more than enough chops to raise a heavenly chorus, he’s also got a weakness for the ladies that could make the Devil himself stand up and take notice.
