Awesome book but definitely not for the faint of heart. This book was totally engrossing and difficult to put down. It kept me wanting to know what in the world was going to happen next. I found myself going through the full range of human emotions concerning Mia and her plight. I wondered what I would do if I found myself in Mia's situation....better yet would I even be able to metally survive it....I think NOT! I really enjoyed how music was infused into the story and how each song mentioned c ...more

Man…oh man! I couldn’t put this book down. I don’t want to divulge all the goods of the book because if any of you want to purchase the book (And you should) I don’t to spoil it for you. I’m going to go ahead and take a nose dive into the book without landing on my face. Alright, here it goes!

I'd never heard of the author K Reid, but I was drawn to this book by it's cover and title which I thought was original but scary looking. Frankly I didn't know what to expect, but once I read the story inside I was shockingly surprised!

Mia Rose dominates the scenes in this novel as a struggling singer who works a regular job, but follows her singing passion when gigs come her way. This full figured young woman is living from pay check to pay check and worried about how she wi

This read is one of those Oh No She/He Didn't types that I like. the story started out slowly and I really thought I couldn't get through it, but I also saw quite a few people giving it a good review so I stuck with it. I'm glad I did. Just for the sake of trying to make some money to help ease her burdens, ol' girl found herself in more hot water than she could ever have imagined. To keep her family protected she had to do some heinous stuff and find a way to extricate herself from what she was ...more
Chose this book for three reasons. Price $.99 kindle, author local to area, the plus size lead character. The price was right on. I enjoyed the read although unbelievable at times. This is what I call a "no thought" read. Recommended it to friend as a change of pace from her normal reads and exposure to other genre. In the future, I will only recommend this read to those I know who read this type of book. Not my cup of tea but I try to finish all books I start unless absolutely impossible. Not s ...more

I purchased this book on my ereader because of its .99 price. This actully truned out to be a pretty good read. Definitly not what I expectd. The only downside I had with this novel is that the author put too much time in listing the character's ipod play list. I did not find the playlist to be relevent to the story.

The details of the killings may leave you a little queasy as the author gives pretty graphic details. All and all this was a good read.
Quite difficult to read because of the slang but I was hooked because of the blurb. A lot of the content is very grisly and sometimes completely unbelievable, but saying that, you never know what goes on in someone else's head or behind closed doors .... Not for the squeamish, and it's one you have to keep at. Worth it.
This book is a must read. I normally don't this type of book, thanks Mattie I really enjoy it. All I can say is WOW.
This book had me going thru many emotions. I felt bad for the main character.
