Crazy!

This was good but weird at the same time. I could never understand why a woman would fall for a guy like she did, only to be left with nothing but drama and a headache. Definitely, a lesson learned for all single women to do their homework before getting too deeply involved with a man.

nice listen

Great story, nice delivery. I really enjoyed the story line, it captured my attention from the start, and held it until the last syllable.

doesn't make sense. leaves 2ndary plots incomplete

ok the author clearly didnt research her content matter. it's a fiction story but it was annoying bc it was so legally wrong. the main character could have sued based on common law marriage in NYC then they would have had to determine who was the legal wife. and if she used her sisters identity to sign her baby's birth certificate and all the paperwork daughter then how can the baby daddy sue her and not her sister for custody. and how did the bd find out she had a child aaannnddd. she could have just filed ss for the brother for the other child. I know this doesn't make sense unless you read it. but the author needed to do a better job for her plot to work. it's just so illogical. the book is meant to be realistic fiction but the. circumstances are just wrong. it really bothered me. the legal circumstances are common knowledge too. you dont have to know law in depth to know the basic laws pertinent to making the story work. And some of the 2ndary plots are left incomplete. Just sloppy story telling.
