This story had a lot of drama and I was getting irritated with the primary characters and wanted someone to return Dior to the mental intuition. The ending was to be desired and I will most likely not read the second installment. Three stars for the drama.

Dior is always involved in a constant collision with catastrophe, causing trouble wherever she goes. Her issues are so severe, she's been sent to an asylum. While she claims that it was all a part of her master plan, some question if she shouldn't be locked away permanently. Scheming all over the place, Dior has set a plan in motion to destroy Chandelle, her cousin's, marriage. Hoping to be in the position to provide Marvin, Chandelle's loyal and loving husband, with the consolat

This was an interesting story. The characters were well developed and by the end of the novel I felt they could have been my co-workers or church members. The events were so intertwined. The book showed how one seemingly insignificant move in our life can and often make a tremendous difference in how life goes. We often get complacent with our lives and miss opportunities to excel with our God-given talents. In these low slumps, we sometimes latch on to negative influe

Victor McGlothin wrote an inspiring tale of love. I fell in love with Marvin and Chandelle and I remained hopeful their love would survive the antics of cousin Dior. I also fell in love with other supporting characters-Super Dave and Dooney. Thank you Victor McGlothin for writing this tale of young Black love.

To me, this book finally got me intrigued a little around 180 pages or so and the end was like "what"...drama, I guess it calls for a sequel or just end the marriage as a whole, Chandelle is childish in some parts! Marvin easily fell to make out with the deceitful, manipulative cousin Dior. 2.5 stars max.

Co-worker gave this to me as an audio book - will start tomorrow and see how it goes.

I had no expectations on this book since a co-worker shared the audio book with me. This was my first book by this author and I can honestly say that it won't be my last. I am looking forward to listening to the sequel as well Sinful Too.

It took me a little over a hundred pages to get into the book. Once I did, it seemed like the book just ended, no conclusion, no closure, just THE END. Sinful Too is low on my To Read list.

I really enjoyed the relationship between Marvin and Chandelle. How sometimes even good marriages hit a rough patch.

This book was very good. Not vulgar at all, just the right amount of sex and scandal. Dior, Dior, Dior, the girl is a hot misguided mess. It was a good read and I look forward to the sequel.
