the story was boring I didn't like it

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Maybe a little more action

What could Kiki Swinson and De'Nesha Diamond have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It was boring I actually fell asleep listening to it I think that if they had a little more action and more Romance it might have been better

First book was decent; Second book unfinished

What would have made A Gangster and a Gentleman better?

Gentleman and Gangsta<br/><br/>Book 1-Was full of drama and a decent listen. Although you definitely did not feel any sympathy toward the heroine. Granted when one marries no one wants to prepare for divorce. Her husband prepared for the event of divorce and like so many his wife blindly went along with whatever he put forth. Her lack of self-preservation left her “a** out” and on trial for murder. As the story unfolded, I kept thinking clearly this is not set in any time after 2000. I can’t imagine a woman that is in this situation, in this millennia will not get her own somehow. At any rate, the wife was not held accountable for her actions and is left to look for her “gangsta.”<br/><br/>Book 2-<br/>This book was extremely slow and uninteresting. There was no chemistry between the 2 primaries. I struggled to complete this story. Over the course of a week, I stopped and started this book a few times. I may go back to it at some point and try to finish, but only got as far as chapter 8. <br/>

What do you think your next listen will be?

Denesha Diamonds final installment in the Diva series.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Book 1-Simi How is a good narrator and had a good paced book to narrate.<br/>Book 2-Corey Allen worked with a story that was simply slow. He's an excellent narrator.

What character would you cut from A Gangster and a Gentleman?

Book 1-None<br/>Book 2-Eli and Blake. They were an uninteresting dynamic

okay

The story line was good just look at the authors, but sometime the narrator can kill a book. Simi Howe is a good narrator, but Corey Allen can put a person to sleep. I try not to get any books with him narrating I just had to get this I enjoy the authors work..

A Gangster and A Gentleman

What a wonderful read from two authors I adore. Both stories had the plot and suspense that I look for in their work. They did not disappoint. In the end, Melody got what she wanted the most a gangster...too bad she had to teach him how the game is truly played. In Gentlemen Prefer Bullets, Eli might have been a "scared and unassuming" child at 8-years old but as the Terminator, he was sure to make his presence felt. In the end he beat his "mentor" at his own game. Great read!
