I thought I would hate this book. Between the title and the first few words from the main character, I thought it would be a torturous 8 hour read about a whorish party girl. I'm so glad I was proven wrong. I got to know the characters, their motivations, and along the way I learned to care about what happened to them ... and even root for them! There was a twist in every turn of the plot line (which was woven together quite masterfully, I must say).
There hasn't been a book in the African-American fiction genre on Audible.com that I've enjoyed so much. I'm hoping for a sequel, or at least another novel by the author!

Loved it, loved it loved it! The narrator did her thing. It sounded like she'd read this book even if she wasn't getting paid to do so. Her manner was engaging and hightened the enjoyment of an already enjoyable storyline. In my past experiences with audible books, my main drawback has always been the narrator, but after this experience, I actually think I'll look for her name when selecting my next "listen"

I really wanted to like this book. I didn't like anything about it until about the end when Destiny had her "come to Jesus" moment.
I am sure this is a great book for a different reader, but it was not the book for me. I just never got into it, plus the sex scenes are too graphic for my taste. I would not recommend it to my friends.
It took me some time to get into this book. It it took me three week to listen to the entire book. It was slow in the begining. But the twist to this book was once I got though the beigining the middle picked up and then at the very end I could not put it down. I was a simple book and sometimes hard to follow, but I would recommend it for listening.
Perfect combination of a well wriiten story and a narrator that keeps your attention. The words flowed from the book out of the narrators mouth like poetry.
