Good until the end

The narrator of this book is awesome, I enjoyed the storyline until it left me hanging at the end.

Filthy and Very Disappointing Ending!!

I'll be fair and say this book kept me wanting to hurry and get to the end so I could find out whose husband was the cheater! I couldn't wait for it all to come together and make sense at the end. Needless to say, I never found out. After having to listen to an overwhelming amount of very graphic "love" scenes that seemed to take up the majority of the book (and yes, I like a "love" scene EVERY ONCE IN AWHILE but this was ridiculous), the author leaves us hanging in the end. I got to the point where I'd roll my eyes when ANOTHER love scene started up. I would speed through it just so I could hear more of the actual story. When the narrator said "The End" at the end of the book I wanted to throw my phone out the window b/c I was so mad I'd sat through the entire book waiting to find out who did it in the end. This would have been a much better book if it would have had some closure. But you are left wondering with no real clues even to help you guess. Ughhh...very mad. And I feel like I need a shower to wash away all the filth.

It was good.

What did you like best about Message from a Mistress? What did you like least?

This story got better as it went on. At first...I was kinda into it but kept listening cause I wanted to know who's husband it was. Then as it slowly got better the end left me hanging cause I had to find out what was next...so I quickly purchased the second book.

Any additional comments?

This story goes up and down, up and down. Meaning it slow for a minute....then it's good....then slow again...then you like OMG, this is good. Overall good story...but don't be surprise it you start like..."ok, not sure if I'm gonna like this."

Not a very creative writer

How many times do you use the word "huskily"? I found it incredibly annoying.

And I'm starting to get annoyed with black writers playing emphasis on the same things: skin complexion, long hair, and the constant mention of brands.

The story idea is interesting but the ending is a let down.

Be prepared to purchase part two.

What did you like best about this story?

Great story line. The end left me with more questions than answers. You will definitely pick up part two after this.

What aspect of Soozi Cheyenne’s performance would you have changed?

Soozi Cheyenne's performance was not that great. It sounded like she was smacking most of the time.

If you could take any character from Message from a Mistress out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would definitely take Jackson to dinner. He sounds sexy as hell!

Hope it gets better

I was recommended the series from a friend but I was disappointed with the first book. The story line dragged and I didnt like how it flip flopped from past to present in the beginning. It was confusing. I'm going to get book 2 and I hope it's better.

Love the Mystery and storyline

Very good lesson learned. You do not know who she was cheating with.
