I really liked this book. Shocking at this point. Especially considering I've read quite a few from this author and this one stands out head and shoulders above the rest. Not sure what she had going on with some of her others, but I have almost no complaints about it beyond the length. Its not terribly short, but the fact that I feel like she sacrificed some material that the book would have benefitted from knocks off a star. The days when "Cyn" stayed with "Palmer" in his house in B ...more

This is Cyn and Parker's story. I loved Cyn because she was sassy and not a total walk over like so many of the Citronellas that we read about. She stood up to her step-sisters and mother, that did not stop them doing the dirty on her but she gave them a tongue lashing when she caught them.
This is a sweet story. I liked how Matthews' chose to develop the relationship between Parker and Cyn - they talked and talked. This is important...essential, really. Relationships runs on the rails of communication, without it failure is inevitable.
Another like, Parker and Cyn were honest and direct with each other about ...more
I liked the characters, I liked how Cyn was bold enough and wasn't trying to hide her interests to Parker. I liked the story line flows. I liked almost everything. Yep, almost. Because what left me hanging is the response from Parker's parents. I knew that they didn't oppose Parker with black woman, but still, I was curious with their conversation, whether they engaged with one another or so. Four stars it is.
