Surprised

This was a short book but I found it quite entertaining. This book was about life, and family. I was also surprised to find this book was part of a series "the Strong Family". The main two characters were believable, the older woman and younger man. The only things that could have been unbelievable is that a man as young as Kaleb had such strong family values and knew what he wanted out of life. This made the book very refreshing for me. The book stand on its own. You will want to read the others as I did after reading this one to find out about the other wives and what transpired before this story.

The characters could have been more developed but you get the jest of what is going on. The book goes far beyond a woman not allowing a new man in her life after being hurt by her husband after he walks out on her for a younger women.


The book thoroughly entertained me. When I find myself, laughing, worried about what's going to happen next, then the book has served it's purpose. After I finished this book I looked for other books about the Strong family as well as by this author. I found "Give Me Fever" which is the book before this one and the Strong sister story will be out soon. I can't wait. I hope it's on audible. I found the story of the Strong family and the dynamics of family values and moral standards refreshing. This book is not a boring book, just short. It has Sex, and lots of drama. If you are looking to slow down from the hustle of the day this will fit the bill for you.

Age Ain't Nothing But A Number!

Would you listen to The Hot Spot again? Why?

No, at least not right away.... maybe in a couple of years when I have forgotten a lot of the story.

Would you recommend The Hot Spot to your friends? Why or why not?

This story line supported May-December relationships. It particularly showed strong support for the man to follow his heart. An older woman can be just as hot and attractive as a younger woman.

Which character – as performed by Shari Peele – was your favorite?

I did not have one favorite... I liked both main characters, Zaria and Kaleb.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I could not listen to it in one sitting... I take breaks regularly and think about what I've listened to so far.

Another great story....Niobia

What made the experience of listening to The Hot Spot the most enjoyable?

We all heard this story before yet this was not that picture perfect scene like in the movies...this is how it really goes down in really life.

What did you like best about this story?

When she realize how much really loves him and excepts the fact that there is nothing wrong with trying it again.

Any additional comments?

It's no surprise how I feel about this author and as always I'm never disappointed with anything Niobia Bryant does. I'm a forever fan of here work, regardless the name she chooses to write under.

Great

I really liked this book and would recommend this book. I wish this book was a movie or TV show. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. I like the younger man and older women love. They have their issues, but work through them. Even seeking professional help with their issues.

I really like this book

Would you consider the audio edition of The Hot Spot to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the printed version of this book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hot Spot?

It was when the main women finally opened her eyes. She knew that she loved her younger man.

What about Shari Peele’s performance did you like?

She has a very nice voice. It was easy to listen to, could put you to sleep.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, if I could have. I just didn't have that much time to give at one time.

Any additional comments?

I will be looking forward to listening to her again.

Great Story

I really enjoyed this book. The Strong family values were very apparent and it was great to see this couple go through struggles and come out on top.
