Publisher's Summary

Sasha Campbell’s sizzling debut follows Nikki Truth, a radio talk show host who has no trouble dishing out relationship advice on the air, yet can’t seem to follow that advice in her own life. With Nikki’s marriage on the rocks and her husband overseas, her best friend Trinette urges her to seek happiness elsewhere. But once Nikki realizes she’s not ready to move on, she may have already lost her husband for good.

So So

Would you try another book from Sasha Campbell and/or Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe ?

I would only try another book if I was out of anything else good to read and it was cheap

What do you think your next listen will be?

Consequences

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe ?

Someone other than a Yale /Harvard theater major, trying to sound urban

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. Everything about this book was a cliché. I was have why though the book and I already knew the ended, better yet I knew exactly what was going to happen next before the next chapter. Do not get me wrong it was an OK read if you're in to Love and Hip Hop Atlanta or the Housewives of Atlanta, but I have read much better Urban novels. Just hated the fact that everything about the characters were a stereotype like the man in the club with the gold tooth button down shirt and "nappy" hairy chest hair. Immediately this brought to mind a character from the Martin Lawrence show from back in the days or the brother name Cool aid (really!?). There were losts of rolling my eyes moment while listening to this book. And please do not get me started on the performances or should I say the narrator. They were so “proper” that when they tried to sound urban or “street” it just came across awkward. Over all I just was not feeling it.

I enjoy this author's writing

there were some twists and turns a few that were very unexpected and I enjoyed them all. the author does a great job with character development. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book in the series I also like the readers for both characters.

Not listenable

Would you try another book from Sasha Campbell and/or Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe ?

Not if it was a similar attempt to distort the English language. The dialogue was an overt attempt to present ghetto- like circumstances but did not enhance the story.

Would you ever listen to anything by Sasha Campbell again?

No.

What didn’t you like about Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe ’s performance?

I'm not sure if they were intolerable or the dialogue made them sound that way.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I can't say.

TERRIBLE!!!!!

Would you try another book from Sasha Campbell and/or Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe ?

No this was awful.

Has Confessions turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, I love Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown, and Danielle Steele; This was nothing like those. It was all about what car this woman drove, and what brands of clothing she had on. It wasn't about romance it was about status. The language was all slang and left something to be desired. There is a quote :I walk around like my shit don't stink, because it don't." It was ridiculous.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe ?

No one, because no one should ever have to listen to this book.

What character would you cut from Confessions?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

Not worth the money.

The Truth Hurts

Where does Confessions rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is always a hard question to answer, as I have read so many and diverse books through Audible. But I would rank it pretty high for this type of book. I was surprisingly pleased by this purchase.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think Trinette was one of my favorites. You could definitely understand why she behaved the way she did, even though she was in a very vicious cycle. She was trying to overcome her past abuse by using in her words "the power of the p****" She was so determined to be "In Control" that she was losing control.

What does Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They really individualized the characters. You knew who was speaking just by the timber and attitude they gave.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I'll admit, I definitely laughed out loud and I did mist up a bit in parts. The scene with Trinette and her mother really got to me.

Any additional comments?

This ones a KEEPER. Trust and Believe I plan to go back and read the previous books as well.
