And the truth of the matter is, Nicole cares for him, too. There's not much Damon doesn't know about Nicole and he accepts her, all of her, as is.

Least favorite Sis

I loved the first two. I NEED ME A ZO. Nicki Strickland was my least favorite. She was loud, ghetto, loose, and jealous. She was going to marry a man because of his status and money while sleeping with her so called best friend and everyone else. Then try make it seem he was the bad guy. I didn't like her or Damon together they were just trfling. To me she never grew up in the end and they only stayed together because of guilt. I would of liked to see her stay with Travis and there relationship grow. Have him go against and stand up to his father and mother since he had a problem with that. His parents were a mess, but he and his sister seemed like sensible people. I like Travis even though he wasn't good in the bedroom I would of taught him a thing or two. Hell , I like watching Matlock too. LOL

Just okay...

I loved the first two books in this series but this one just made me cringe. I guess the author gave Nikki book smarts to make up for the fact that she is just plain stupid. She was not likable from the very beginning and made bad decision after bad decision. And the whining...please stop! I should have stopped after book two but I wanted to see it through. What a wasted credit.

Well okay

I enjoyed the story overall but found myself annoyed with Nikki. She’s smart but dumb . The narrator Mari was okay... I think her voice is too mature sounding for Nikki and quite bland. I enjoyed the male narration. This story isn’t as good as the rest of the series.

Main character is Too Much Drama

This book was really hard to get through with all of the drama the main character held. She was vain and had trust issues even though she was sneaky.

She was too much

One thing I really liked about this story was the humor. I didn't like the voice of the female narrator at all but then again I am not too fond of males reading for a female character. Nikki was crazy and she acted like it. I spent most of the book not approving of her hoe status as she portrayed in the first book and I thought about how she was lying and cheating on a man she knew she didn't want. If the roles were reversed I would want to burn a man into dust if he did what she did. In the end however the author worked all that out although I still didn't like what she was did. This book almost seemed too long like come on already and wrap it up. She got on my nerves really. I would like to read a story by this author where there is not someone smoking weed. I am still investigating it. I did like the story and in some ways it was better than the last two.

Just read the book instead!

These narrators are GOD AWFUL. The voice of the woman is monotone and lifeless, as though she is having trouble reading. When the male voice reads for female characters, it’s like nails on a chalkboard. Very painful listen overall.

Pleas read the story instead.

ONCE A HOE!!

I really struggled with this book. Niki said she was a “hoe” in book 1 & 2 and she lived up to this with her wild ways in this book. How could she be engaged to one man and sleep with another? How could Niki be so jealous of any woman checking out Damon when she was engaged to Travis? You can tell deep down she was disturbed with issues from the past. However, this drugged on for half the book. Ssheeeesh!! Why Damon put up with this crap is amazing!! Love is one thing, but stupidity is another.

The husband-to-be, Travis, was no treat either. You can tell he has some issues that went further than the bedroom. He is supposed to be a big time lawyer!! What man lets his “bougy” family run his life. Here is a clue ladies, if his family doesn't like you and he is not willing to fight for you, RUN to the nearest exit and get the HELL OUT. It is not worth your time, energy and stress.

I loved how Nicki’s mother, Lisa did not take any more crap from her husband of 40 years. She kicked his butt to the curb and tried other relationships. They definitely had some issues to work on. However, he turned out to be a better husband as she stood up to him and a great grandfather to the kids.

By the end of the book I actually liked Nicki. She was lazy in the other books because no one expected anything out of her. It was good to see her put her education and computer skills to benefit the family. She actually turns out to be a real person.

Love this series, but Nikki is...ugh!

All the Strickland sisters books are really really good. However Nikki is the worst! She supposed to be so educated but the way she acts makes me think otherwise. She actually believed that she could marry someone who doesn't match her skills in the bedroom, all so she could stay home and not work. And omg she's so insecure too. All that girl does is react and not think at all. But i think Angie is definitely the most levelheaded of all the sisters. And i need me a Zo asap!
