I've never read urban fiction before, but won this in a Goodreads contest and thought I'd expand my horizons. This one is a collection of stories and overall, written in a good story-telling style. Not being a woman of color, the vernacular was a little tough for me to navigate, but it was OK. The first story, Flirting with Disaster, I felt kind of gypped. It took so long to get to the point, then boom, it was over and you were left wondering what happened next.

Anyway... it's not a bad read. De

three short stories in one book. all 3 were so good it was hard to pick a favorite. I am familiar with the work of Tracy Brown and K'wan. This was my first time reading anything by Angel Mitchell. Each story flipped the script and left you wanting read more. In Flirting With Disaster , Chloe prided herself on being the beautiful intelligent woman that used men before they used her. She was an advocate of play or be played. She was so annoying with it that she preached to her friends on a regular ...more

This book was fast paced, and had some pretty good stories.

I didn't expect to like it since I rarely read urban fiction, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I must say that the story by K'wan was the best of the three. Now, I want to go read some more of his work.

Definitely a book worth reading. I enjoyed reading these three very different novellas.

I feel like i was cheated out of what should have been a great read. the first story was like a cliff hangar. the second one was great. so far, i have never been disappointed with Kwan. My mouth was open when princess' head exploded. the last had the potential to be a full novel bc i want to know what will happen with the babies.

This book goes to show you never know someone, until something really drastic happens. I'm going to leave it at that. Read this book.
This book is very interesting it is a combination of three short stories. even though the stories are short they have a lot of information and keep you engaged.

I liked Tracy's story. The other two were good but not as good as hers.

The first story was the most interesting. The last story was a bit much.
