This was a great first novel by Arabia. The first part of the book was mostly about the relationships between a group of close friends and their boyfriends and I found myself really rooting for Sy and Coke. The tragedy that Sy suffered had me in tears because it related to my own experience and the author replayed the scenes very nicely and realistically. Towards the middle and end the action started and at that point it was hard to put down. I'm pretty happy with the ending but there are two ch ...more

I'm rating this book on the strength that it is the authors first it goes

The story revolves around four friends, Syria. Nikki, Shani, and Monica. They are the best of friends and truly have each other backs. They get "booed" up with some ballers, Coke, Tre, and Mike, but there friendship remains strong as ever. Coming to there girl rescue, causes a strain in the girls in unbreakable bond. After this situation, all kinds of drama comes at the girls and their boos. Will they survive t

I'm ashamed to say this, but this book has been sitting in my cloud on my kindle for over a year and some change. My interest didn't pick back up for this book until I read some of my Facebook friends posts in one of our reading groups. I decided to pick it up and check it out and it was a really good read. It flowed good and I loved the characters. The men and women blended so well together. Loved the action and the romantic aspect of the book. I already have the other books in the se

Damn, I wish I could give it another star. I started last night (sat) and finished just today (Sun). I couldn't put it down. Needless to say, nothing got done. I wasn't expecting this, it was a pleasant surprise. I enjoyed this book. it had everything: friendship, love, drama. I loved all the characters and especially the girl's friendship and loyalty to each other. I found myself laughing and crying at times, I also like the author's surprise characters. I won't spoil for Arabia fans. i
This book was extremely hard for me to read. The grammar, spelling and punctuation was horrible. A lot of times, there were no periods to end a sentence and commas were misplaced throughout the whole book. Not only that, but the wrong spelling of words were used (their vs. there, wear vs. where, etc). The story line was JUST OK, but it's very hard to find anything realistic about high school girls who are spending thousands of dollars on clothes almost weekly, yet don't have a job, wealthy paren ...more

Great ending!!

Arabia, you did a spectacular job on this one. The storyline was right on point. I so love the relationship the ladies had and not to mention the love they all had for their men! I literal felt like is was apart of this book, that's just how wonderful it was. I laughed, cried and felt the adrenalin of all the characters. I am looking forward to reading many more of Arabia's novels.... Job well done!!

I loved the way how all their friendships worked. They all was down for one another. The girls had their bond just as well as the guys. Monica was foul for what she did she could of approached it another way. But I was glad those girls found them some good guys

Overall this book was a good read & was well written. It started off slow & I was expecting a bit more action in the beginning. The couples relationships as well as friendships (with the exception of 2) seemed meant to be. Even after the near fatal events, they came back stronger than ever. Looking forward to reading the sequels to this series.

Great read!!!!

I really enjoyed this book and found that I could relate to the characters. I don't know why some women like thugs but the heart wants what the heart wants. I felt like I was apart of the story and loved how it ended

Coke Dreams was all that and more! I really loved how this book flowed like a movie. Arabia did a great job!
The words were used out of context, misspelled words and words used in the wrong tense throughout the book was bothersome to me but that is my OCD in effect. I guess this is called Urban Fiction? I generally don't read these books so I had to ask some of my young people the meaning of some of vernacular used. This is like fantasy to me because I have no point of reference. The story line was consistent but for me everything was so farfetched I couldn't relate but I am sure people really live lik ...more

This is a very good book. I could no stop reading this book. This author is a very good writer.

I really dont know how I feel about this book. I couldn't get into it like I wanted but still would recommend it
The book was okay and a very quick read..some of things that happen in the story were unbeleivable....
This book was an enjoyable read. It was a bit unrealistic but the story was well written and the story is fiction. I got past the multi millionaire high schoolers with absentee parents and enjoyed the love stories which were a bit more realistic because neither of the participants were perfect and made mistakes. The book could have used more editing and that is why I couldn't give a five star rating.

I really enjoyed this book. A definite page turner. It kept me curious and wanting to know what's next. My anticipation level was on a super high!!! Loved it!

Great read! Arabia is a great writer and def didnt disappoint with this. From the beginning I was totally engulfed and couldn't put it down. Character development was on point and the story flowed effortlessly. I love the relationship and bond the crew had but I'm all the #teamcokeandsy ! Starting Scorned now! Oh, I definitely recommend this read.
I love the relationships built in this series between friends. All the guys grew up together and all the girls grew up together and all had each others backs. I thought Monica was foul for going against her girls for a negroe. I can say the men wasn't any joke about the people they loved the went hard. Sy was no joke with her crazy ass lol
I read this book in one day. It was really good & had a good flow. Just the right amount of crime, funny, sex & drama while being very believable.

I thought this book was really good! I didn't want it to end! A definite page turner! My first book by this author and it definitely won't be the last. I do recommend!
this book was a good read with believable characters and situations...but WAY too many grammatical/spelling errors. Like calling VALIUM 'volume'...
