This book is ok. Out of the series, this is my least favorite book. The book is way too long and could have been done in 15 chapters instead of 22. It just dragged on. If I would have listened to this book first, I would not have listened to the rest of the series.

This story is very engaging like the rest of the Submissive series. Angelica Lee is a fabulous narrator. All the parts she read were great. Jack Cave sounds like an old man and not sexy at all. Nathaniel is supposed to be a sexy man and sound like it. Jack Cave fails at that. Please bring back William Sharpe or get someone like Sebastian York or Jeremy York to narrate future stories. Jack Cave almost spoiled this book for me because of his narration style and voice.

Sixteen-year-old Starr Carter moves between two worlds: the poor neighborhood where she lives and the fancy suburban prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Khalil was unarmed. Soon afterward, his death is a national headline. Some are calling him a thug, maybe even a drug dealer and a gangbanger. Protesters are taking to the streets in Khalil’s name. Some cops and the local drug lord try to intimidate Starr and her family. What everyone wants to know is: what really went down that night? And the only person alive who can answer that is Starr.

Powerful and heart wrenching. The narration was fantastic. This book is upsetting on so many levels and true at the same time. This is a well written book that could be a true story. It is Why could it be a true story? Because it is an accurate depiction of how these types of situations could have transpired in recent years. This book is a must read for everyone. If you are clueless about race relations and why some situations occur for Black people, this book is a good place to start to gain some understanding.

In this riveting landmark autobiography, which reads like a novel, Academy Award and Emmy winner Louis Gossett, Jr., masterfully transports us to 1840s New York; Washington, D.C.; and Louisiana to experience the kidnapping and 12 years of bondage of Solomon Northup, a free man of color. Twelve Years a Slave, published in 1853, was an immediate bombshell in the national debate over slavery leading up to the Civil War.

Fantastic book! The narration was phenomenal. This book is very raw and real. It is a firsthand account of a free man that was kidnapped and sold into slavery. He was liberated after 12 years, but had to endure being treated less than a human being. I was very emotional reading this book because the injustice even until the end was infuriating. This book should be required reading for everyone in the United States because it is a part of our history, like it or not. Anyone who says that slavery was not that bad, needs to read this book and get a wake up call.

The narration was fantastic! Intriguing story. At first, I thought this was going to be just another typical erotic romance novel, but Pearl and Crow...just WOW. Pearl was thoroughly screwed over and now she is falling for her captor, Crow. Crow is also falling for her. It is a very difficult position to be in for both of them.

The character development in this book was surprisingly good along with the plot. I actually had a few moments of surprise by some of the plot twists in the story. Pearl is not the “damsel in distress” and that is really cool. Crow is a definitely not a saint, but his heart is actually good. I read this book in a single day, which says a lot. It is that good.
