Publisher's Summary

Entertainment journalist and biographer Aliya S. King has composed a fascinating satirical work about celebrities. Although fictional, the characters in Platinum bear striking resemblance to actual celebrities alive today.

Freelance journalist Alex Maxwell plans to marry a famous rapper. But Alex’s situation gets complicated as she starts writing a story that highlights some of the many ways that fame can cripple or destroy a relationship.

Not worth the money...

I normally love these types of stories but I found this one hard to get through. The character voices and situation were over the top... I would wait until it goes on sale to but this one...

This is some Drama for yo Mama.

Any additional comments?

If you like drama, this book has it. I enjoyed this book and all its characters. This story is based on the hip-hop music industry. It has some great characters and an interesting story line to keep your attention. I recommend this book.
