Worse Book Ever

The simplicity of the writing only,and non existing story line are just a few things that makes this book bad. The plot was undeveloped and after 7 hours nothing was resolved. The characters were weak and undeveloped as well. The names, the dispositions all WEAK!. This is the worse book ever. We deserve more in this genre.I feel as if the author does not care about the readers and has just put this book out to make money. HORRIBLE!!

Just ok

This was an ok audio. I didn't really see the need for all the different narrators. Buyer beware Patricia " lip smacking, annoying spit sounds" Floyd is one of the narrators. Once I heard her I really didnt get into the book as I had anticipated. The ending seemed a bit abrupt. I wanted to see more development between Asha and Sherikas husband.

Not So Great

I was bored and waiting for something interesting to happen when half way through I gave up. It was quite shallow.

I Can't Relate

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

Not having so many women that sounded terrible.

Would you ever listen to anything by Anita Diggs again?

I'll certainly try not to.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Denzel's Lips?

The entire book needs to be cut.

Any additional comments?

Don't listen to any of it.

Crazy Story!

This was one crazy story (esp the chick in love with Denzel, lol) but it kept me listening, which makes a great read. If you're looking for something that you can't put down, this is the one to listen to...although I didn't particularly like the ending...needs a sequel.

Good Listen

I enjoyed the characters. I was kept engaged from beginning to end. It ended a little too neat, but that's why it's called fiction. All in all a good listen. I would definitely go back and listen to Anita Diggs' previous book.

Entertaining

I like a book that keeps me wanting to "listen". I enjoyed this book and glad I bought it. The characters were easy to keep track of because of the multiple readers. My only complaint is that the at least one story line ended a little to neat in my opinion. But even with that I had a great time listening to the book.
