Publisher's Summary

Best friends and blood sisters for life, Melonee Reid and Fiona White have one goal in life - to get rich and live comfortably - but growing up in the inner city of Los Angeles isn't helping them obtain that goal. That is, until Fiona comes up with a plan to marry for money and murder for even more.

The girls seek out older, established, wealthy bachelors, drawing them into a web of deception with their good looks, sexy bodies, and loving personalities. Once their last names are changed and the ink is dry on the insurance policies, the clique executes its plan to have the new husbands die "accidental" deaths, leaving their fortunes to the widowed wives.

Their little marry-for-money scam works for years, until things take a drastic turn and one friend's connection to the new mark has her questioning her role in the Black Widow Clique. The other friend still wants to carry out the murderous plan to get a hold of a multimillion-dollar insurance policy. 

Friendship will be tested, lies will be told, and loyalty will come into play when one black widow decides her cozy web of deception, love, and money isn't big enough for two anymore.

Narrator ruined this story!

This may be an exceptionally good story but I will never know because I cannot get past chapter 2! The narration is so robotic it makes it unbearable to listen to. I will not be able to finish this book.

Horrible Narrator! Ruined the book!

This book had great potential and the story wasn’t half bad but this narrator was awful. Just awful. She didn’t bring the characters to life at all and frankly they should have had a male to narrate the voice of Roman. She didn’t even attempt to change her voice. The same voice she used for Melanie she used for Roman. The exact same! Ugh!

Ida Belle give poor narrations

I don’t know what possessed me and made me select a book narrated by Ida Belle. Although this seems like a god book, it’s so hard to get past Ida Belle’s narration. Her reading style is hard and robotic with hard stops at the wrong time, instead of at the end of sentences. She has the wrong inflections at the wrong times. She has no sense of character change whatsoever, which causes the listener to forget exactly which characters part she’s reading. I just returned a book due to bad writing and selected this one so now I feel bad for wanting to return this one so now I’m stuck with this bad narration. Her reading style is cringeworthy and I don’t know if I can finish it and it’s sad because it seems like a good book.
