Publisher's Summary

No shade means "no offense" (as defined by Urban Dictionary).

Example: Don't tell her I told you, but your little cousin is a ho. No shade.

Every little girl dreams of a happy ending to her story - a home, children, and a man who loves her enough to share his life and last name. When Billy's longtime boyfriend, Marcus, finally pops the question, it's one of the happiest moments of her life.

Billy calls on her childhood friends, Reese and Yoshi, to stand with her on her special day. Several years have passed since they'd last come together, and unresolved issues have driven a wedge between the women. Nevertheless, they agree to put their differences aside for the sake of Billy's wedding. But the truce is a short one when Billy has to decide on a maid of honor. Just when things seem to be coming together, they quickly begin to fall apart. At a time when Billy is supposed to be basking in the sunshine of her approaching wedding, she finds herself the target of shade being thrown from the most unlikely places.

While Billy is going through her drama, Marcus is dealing with issues of his own. An old crime partner of his blows into town unexpectedly, and his presence threatens to destroy the legitimate life Marcus has worked so hard to build.

Even with the universe seemingly working against them, Billy and Marcus are determined to have their dream wedding. But first they have to survive the nightmare of planning it.

There goes the neighborhood...again.

Can't finish the book

I returned this book after 3 chapters because the narrator was horrible. If you're going to read a ghetto, ratchet hood novel then she needs to have some hood in her. Her voice made me sleepy and bored, they need to get someone to record this book over.

Narrator no bueno

First of all, the narrator should've been told how to pronounce names.. She pronounced "Shy or Shai" as "Shaaayy" the whole story, drove me nuts. The story was strong and I'm a fan of K'wan but you have to love the hood stories to appreciate his books!

Good story, bad reading!

Loved the story, but I did not care for the reader. I did not like her voice for any of the characters, and she mispronounced the name of one of the characters through the whole book!

Bad narration

I am a fan of K'wan's writing. I have listened to several of his books on audio (Cary Hite is narrator ) and was impressed with how the story was told. Kim did not do his book justice.
I am also under the impression there will be more to the story sense K'wan left a lot of unanswered questions. I am still a diehard fan because I've read over 10 of his books with Animal being my favorite and was left wanting more.

BORING

Would you try another book from K’wan and/or Kim Johnson?

Maybe

What could K’wan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Chose another narrator

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kim Johnson?

Honey Jones

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

Boredom

Any additional comments?

Too many characters and I could not tell who was who. Because the narrator never changed her voice. It literally sounded like she was reading straight from a piece of paper. No emotions, no excitement, every word was read in the same tone. I did not complete and will be asking for a refund.
