I loved this book. I've read all of Noire's work and this is no different than all the others when it comes to her her natural writing skills. The characters in this book was a trip. Norie packed every type of person in this book from kissing cousins to pain sluts. It was so funny. After reading this book, you will find that Mink and Bunni are not the only ones with a secret. Everyone has a motive of thier own. I can't believe that Mink and Bunni managed to pull this off at least for now. Don't ...more

I enjoyed reading Natural Born Liar. Noire did a good job. Natural Born Liar is a good book but each of characters are a hot mess.

Mink LaRue is stupid and ratchet. Mink is a good liar and unfaithful person. Dajuan has played her real good. She lost the money and everything. She needs to be careful how she treats people. Gutta will going to find out that Mink stole his money and lost his apartment. Mink is also a con artist who is thinking about her and the quick money. I think that she could ha

I'm currently reading this book and I actually love it! It's an interesting book about a woman who will do anything for money. Her and her friend comes up with a scheme to get ALOT of money and you will be surprised at what happens when you read it. This book will have you reading until you are on the last page. Once you read this book, you will not be able to wait to read the second book!

This book tells the story of Mink LaRue who is a thief and former stripper living in Harlem. One day Mink's best friend Bunni notices how much Mink looks like a missing oil heiress on the back of a milk carton. Mink and Bunni, who are low on funds, hatch a plan to go to Dallas Texas and pretend Mink is the long lost Sable Dominion.

Right from the start, these two ladies are always in some sort of trouble. They realize that if Mink can convince everyone that she is Sable that they will be set. Min

This book...no words. The part that was confusing was since there was a re-test and it was suppose to be negative by default why would it turn negative ? Wouldn't that mean sable is actually a twin ? There's a lot of lose evidence in this book and I'm definitely looking forward to the next !

Natural Born Liar was a very enjoyable book not your typical Noire style though. I already pre-order pt2. Its one of those books that you must continue on to see the outcome. Mink and Bunni sure know how to run a scam or do they??? We will soon see when Sexy Little Liar drops in Oct 2012.

I really liked this book, I'm looking for the other one right now!! I enjoyed all the characters especially Peaches huni, I can just imagine his big ol self with some damn lingerie on!! Lol! Mink, on the other hand is a low down dirty broad that'll make somebody kill her ass with all the stuff she be into. Taking her man's money while he's locked up, & losing his spot?? She was doing the most for real.Once they arrived in Texas I started feeling a "B.A.P.'s" vibe. I can damn near see Bunni a ...more

Petty thief and former stripper Mink LaRue and her bestie, Bowlegged Bunni lament their lack of funds when Bunni mentions how much Mink resembles a missing heiress ... after seeing her picture on a milk carton! Funds being what they are, in this case, non-existent, a scheme is born. The makeover to become Sable Dominion is underway and a trip to Dallas is planned.

As a foundation piece there is a bit of extraneous information and enough question are left over to intrigue the reader to find out w

This book was my first read by this author. All I can say is that Mink is a piece of work her and her damn friends. I really don't agree what she does to get her paper bit I understand her situation. Baron and Pilar are a piece of work. Great job Noire now on to part 2.

Truly entertaining. This is one of the funniest urban books I have ever read. The scheming minds of Mink & Bunni are hilarious. Ready to read more of their drama and conniving ways in Sexy Little Liars!

In need of some money quick. Mink Larue and her beastie Bunni head to Texas pretending to be long lost daughter of the Dominions, a wealthy family whose daughter was kidnapped when she was younger. Realizing her task was not going to be as easy as rigging a DNA test, she must also convince her newfound siblings of her sincerity in being the missing girl.

I was immediately drawn into the book and story of Miss Mink Larue. This story brought on just enough comedy with a hint of drama to keep me tur

In all honesty I did not finish this book. Yes, I am a black person but the words depicted in this tale, I just could not understand. If you are one of those that will read this book, make sure you have some type of street and/or hood knowledge as you will be totally lost like I was. I never got beyond Chapter 2 as I tried to give it a chance but just really could not understand what many of the words meant.

Tough to rate this since it's not my usual choice of reading material. Fast paced. I could have used a glossary. The sex was plentiful and energetic but not particularly sensual nor enticing for me. A peek into a different world. I can see the appeal of the characters and the settings even though it wasn't to my taste. Discussion questions are included in the book.

Took me a long time to read this bit not because it wasn't good; it was.

Mink LaRue was a New York hustler. The girl's middle name is probably scam. Lies for a living and after losing the profits from her latest grift, finds a new one...to pretend to be the kidnapped Sable Dominion from Texas.

Story written in true NYC dialogue, lol. Recommend.

Loved this read

This book started off a little slow for me but picked up quick. I'm enjoying the Dominion family and all their twisted schemes. Can't wait to read the second book in this series.

Started reading this book before my Vacation (2 weeks ago), and finally, finished it before my vacation was over.. I enjoyed the book to a certain extent... Mink and Bunni were different type of "gold diggers." They came up with a plan, followed it, and made it out of Harlem for awhile..

The cliffhanger makes the reader want to find out what happens once Mink and Bunni leave Texas, leaving the one Dominion family member with a broken heart and the others seeking the truth.. So, I plan on purchas

This urban erotic book was another one of Noire's 5 STAR BANGERS. I was engaged with the unique story line. Of course the story had the usual urban flavor of Bootylicious characters with expensive taste, but the story then took a different route to get the readers to stay interested.

Mink, the main character was a Natural Born Liar that used her mouth to get her in and out of trouble. Her latest "lick" has landed her on the other side of the set up.

The erotic scenes and encounters keep your pulse
