Publisher's Summary

Renowned for his popular contributions to anthologies of African-American erotica, award-winning author Eric Pete is a silky-smooth voice in contemporary fiction. Pete leaves nothing to the imagination when it comes to L.A.’s dirty little secrets in the steamy novel Don’t Get It Twisted.

Massage therapist Isrie Walker and plus-sized fashion photographer Deja Douglas are best friends for life. After a bout of bad luck with the opposite sex, these two divas go on a mission to find the love that’s been missing in their lives.

Twist with Intrigue!

Great story line depicting "real stuff." I will suggest to others who use Audible Books

Predictable

It was just OK. The content was good as it relates to relationships. Just a predictable outcome.

What I needed, when I needed it...

Where does Don’t Get It Twisted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the bottom 10.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Don’t Get It Twisted?

When Isrie ran ito Ryan at the club and the nasty things he said to her. I felt her pain and understood her insecurities.

Have you listened to any of Susan Spain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. I love Susan Spain's voice. This was comparable to what I listened to before. She has a good flow and brings the character to life.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Dejah finally accepted her own beauty.

Any additional comments?

I haven't read a book like this in a while; the ups and downs of love. But it was a refreshing break from all of the noir stuff I've been reading and listening to. Although the end had a bit of a twist and drama, it was still lite and I walked away feeling good about how it ended. I will definitely check out more of Pete's work.

ENJOYABLE AND PLEASURABLE

I really lliked this story because it wasn't trashy and full of smut. The characters were very likeable. I really enjoyed the friendship between the two women. I recommend this highly. As always, the narrators for me play an integral part of the story, and they did a fabulous job!
