This is a 6 book series, first one was very interesting, drama happening to this young woman in EVERY chapter, it's definitely a HARD core urban fictional story, author goes in HARD, so be prepared, the audio was very good. Hopefully all 6 will be released soon. Kudos to both narrators

Ms Terry is one of my favorite authors, great writer,indeed she is!! her voice is much too strong in the narration of this audio, and I forgot it til I tried to listen to the above book and remembered why I didn't finish waiting to exhale, cause of her LOUD, DEMANDING VOCALS, it was driving me crazy so I will have to READ all her books IF SHE narrates any that peek my interesting, I would love to have her voice when it's time to bang some heads cause it's an attention getting voice. Love u Ms.T, but I'm gonna have to return this audio and purchase to book to read.

The NARRATION is absolutely horrendous, I had to stop listening in the middle of the story.
The story line itself might have been great had I been able to understand the narrator. she was READING the book, like a 4yr old reads a Dr. Seuss book, there was on FEELING what so ever, no type of emotion. l will no doubt start listening to the audio samples before purchasing, and remembering narrator's names, NARRATION will make are break audio books, I have ALL of Mrs. Ashley's books they are GREAT (A+) But this listen gets a GIANT (F) requesting refund immediately PLEASE LISTEN B4 USING CREDIT

Blake Crystal has the best of almost everything. She's at the top of her game at work, she has four wonderful daughters, and at 50 she's more financially secure than she's ever been. In and out of the bedroom, her new younger lover takes her in breathtaking directions that force her to make decisions she never imagined.... On the surface,Alexis Crystal is an ideal daughter. As confident as she is beautiful, she can have any man or woman she wants, so she has both in her collection of bed partners.
