I barely made to chapter 2 before tapping out. That Chaquita narrator is TERRIBLE (all caps). Her narration made this impossible for me to continue.

The first in a new series chronicling the fortunes of the Brooklyn Monarchs, a fictional NBA franchise, Fast Break is another triumph for fan-favorite author Regina Hart. Here, two-time league MVP and three-time champion DeMarcus Guinn is going to turn the Monarchs around his way, or not at all. The only obstacle he must overcome is a developing rivalry with the fiery team owner, Jaclyn Jones.

This book was predictable and just OK. There were a few attempts at a plot twist and some drama, but they fell short each time.

I just finished and am feeling like my time was not that well spent with this book. Books 1 and 2 were both very good, and I love the male narrator's voice just as I have in all of the books... But this one just didn't do it for me. It had all of the key elements of the first, drama, plot twists, love and steam... a lot of steam!! But, it still just missed something in my opinion. I guess book 4 will be about Neal finding love in his rehab facility since the authors made him and his subplot story more evident than necessary and to end the series- I am calling it now, Cat and her new family will be book 5. Hope whatever is next will be better than this one.

In this sequel to Something on the Side, two Rubenesque beauties kiss the Big Apple goodbye and launch a new chapter of the Big Girls Book Club in Richmond, Virginia. But this time, the size-14-and-over ladies’ club is welcoming a chunky (and very male) player into its ranks—and plus-size shenanigans are sure to follow.

Not at all what I signed up for. After reading book 1 (Something on the Side) I was becoming familiar with this author's writing style and desire to push the envelope. BUT this attempt to sneak in gay erotica is DEFINITELY not my type of thing. The beginning of chapter 5 is as far as I could go with this book.. I will be requesting a credit TO-DAY!

While my friends and I never have even a third of this much drama, this book was funny-to-me and surprisingly quite relatable in some instances. My friend and I texted each other with "OMG texts" almost every hour while listening to this book. It definitely kept me interested and I enjoyed the different narration, EXCEPT for Shari Peele (Isis). Ugh, all of that swallowing has to be a medical condition. It is disturbing! I really enjoyed CoCo though...she was hilarious! There were several plot twists that I didn't see coming and again, quite a few comical moments. I really did enjoy this book more than I thought I would.

I had this book on my wishlist for months and I kept going back and forth about listening to it. Finally I downloaded it and initially it held my attention well. But, like so many others the writing fell way off in the middle and the overly descriptive adjectives started to be used as fillers and the repetition of previous chapters became too many to keep track of. If this had been a book written by someone in high school those faux pas would have been forgiven and it would've been a good book. But since this was published by someone calling themselves an author, I would give it a 3 overall at best.

Based off of the release dates I tried to put these books in order and listen to what I thought was the last one in this series wanna be, but I guess I was wrong unless this author is gonna drag these storylines out some more? This book, with its multiple sub-plots was TOO many things that just didn't make sense or go together! The lengths that these weak minded female characters went to for the dumbest revenge ever was way too far fetched! Basically, I feel like I just wasted my time listening to tales of dumb and dumber women. Giving this book 2 stars is being quite generous!

This book held my interest for the few hours that it took to listen, but this book also made me realize that there is a such thing as way too many details. Like every time a character got dressed this book described every article of clothing down to the socks...which was basicially just unnecessary page fillers. Then the story was basically void of plot. 4 hours later and I am wondering what the point of it all was. AND while I typically like iiKane, this book was not one of my favorite narrations.

Publishers Weekly called award-winning author Michele Grant's Heard It All Before a ''scorching debut.'' This sequel follows Roman Montgomery's charming brother Beau, who shows up at his sister's Dallas condo looking for a place to stay. Instead, he finds her new roommate, Belle - equal parts attitude and beauty - who wants nothing to do with Beau's pretty-boy act. But when she offers him a job, Beau sees a chance to make something of himself - and prove he's more than just a pretty face.

This was a predictably cute follow up to Heard It All Before. I really liked that the lead female character was emotionally and financially sound and was not a man chasing desperate woman. She knew her worth and while she ultimately chose the man in the end, it was on her own terms.
