Publisher's Summary

He's beautiful, with gray eyes, tall, chocolate...and he's worth fighting for.

Meet Omari, a gorgeous, hardworking 28-year-old man from the South Side of Chicago. No matter how hard he works at his job at UPS, it is never enough to take care of himself and his long-term girlfriend. After continuous pressure from his older cousin, Ching, Omari finally trades in busting his ass for working under Ching, hustling three major blocks on the West Side.

All is good as Omari juggles work and the drug game - until Ching involves him in the murder of someone who ends up being the governor's nephew. As he dodges homicide detectives, Omari is also trying to dodge getting caught between two loves. He's been committed to Aeysha for seven years but is falling more each day for Simone, an older, more established woman who is at his beck and call.

After years of playing the side chick, Simone finally finds love that she thinks is all her own. Just as she settles in to loving Omari, she finds out about Aeysha, and her desperate mind begins to plot how to finally win her man. Simone's best friend, Tammy, thinks Simone is crazy, and she herself is running from an obsessed ex-boyfriend who is persistent in trying to kill her. Tammy lives in hiding for months as she asks herself this burning question: How can a man love a woman with the same hands that he is willing to kill her with?

As the murder investigation leads to arrests, the walls come down on these lovers. Murder, sex, and indictments lead to unforeseen tragedy and unexpected love.

Very good book but sheesh... So emotional

This book, is actually good. Man Simone had me feeling all types of emotions lol she makes me not want to finish the other books in the series.I already know, I'm a want to continue the rest of the series to. I just knew Omari womanwas going to get killed while pregnant.The killer is either Simone, Ebony, or Ching friends.I'm so irritated I hate reading books that has babies, children and teens killed. I'm alsolike what happen to the baby over and over.Plus, I also felt bad for Tammi, I knew she was going to die anyway so or later.I hope Omari don't end up with that psycho.Capone, and Omari actually going to end up in that drug game hard watch especially after his woman died. I was happy to here his daughter lived I'm like thank God.While, I'm over hear listening to this book like um hello did she live? Glad she did.
I'm just rolling my eyes and shaking my head like this ninja here.Smh...
Ending had me like  see I just knew. Why? Because I figured Simone had something to do with Ayesha murderand not only Ayesha, Tammi murder too. I hope they mope the floor with that weave of her psychopath self lol. I know I don't like snitches, Chance need to snitch on that hoe thot lol. Cause whoosh I never lol.

What people will do for love

Where does Secrets of a Side Bitch rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This book ranks very high on my scale among the books that I have listened to, there is secrets, mystery, suspense, love, hate, and tragedy all the characteristics of a great book are found in this book. What makes it even better is that it is a series, so I can only assume the story will continue to get better and better. We all know what is done in the dark will always come to the light and that is the same for secrets and lies, you can not keep lies and secrets forever eventually things will start to come out.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tammy and Aeysha are my favorite characters in this book so far. Tammy is going through a struggle like no other, but it is a struggle that many women go through today and no body is there to help them. Aeysha is a strong woman yes she is down on her luck in this book and she knows that Omari is not as faithful as he should be she is still trying to make it work and stick it out with him. She has been very loyal to him and wants to keep working on the love that they have.

What about Cary Hite and Nicole Small ’s performance did you like?

The performance from Cary Hite and Nicole Small were amazing I could picture each one of the characters in this book. They bring all the emotions out of each character.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were several moments in this book that moved me, I don’t want to give anything away, but you will be hooked and on the edge of your seat from the start to end of this book. There are times where I cried, I was angry, and I was speechless by some of the moments in this book.

Any additional comments?

none
