I absolutely love Mary Monroe but it is not a secret to say that this book fell off the radar completely. Let's take a look at the series. God Don't Like Ugly, God still don't like Ugly, and God don't Play. ALL great reads and I absolutely love the thriller ride. However I am so confused by this book. Annette is back and for the first three installments she had been considered ugly and fat, and dark. Even though she found love in a child hood friend the fact was she looked a certain way.

I enjoyed this installment in Mary's 'God' series. This one started out a little slow for me but in the end I was fully sucked in by the drama and the twists. Without spoiling the book for anybody I will say that I was very surprised by the turnout of the story behind what was really going on with Pee Wee, as well as Louis Barnes' true motives. In the end I was conflicted between feeling sorry for Annette and thinking that she made her bed and that she deserved some of what happened.

Like I said before, Mary Monroe has good intentions. I think her ability to put an engaging plot together is amazing. While reading this book, I truly did have trouble putting it down because I wanted to find out what was going to happen next.

Her problem is the characters. Her characters are about as flat and one-dimensional as a sheet of paper. In previous books, I certainly at least liked Annette more than this one. This was a completely different Annette than what I am used to. This Annette

I struggled to get through this book. I'm new to Mary Monroe and this is book three in the series. I haven't read the others, (this one was recommended by a friend) so my lack of knowledge of the characters background may have something to do with my dislike. Regardless, I found the book to be disjointed and lacking in, well, everything! lol

I wanted to like this book but all of the characters seemed empty and self-absorbed. I had to shelve the book several times while reading and move on to othe
This was one of my least favorites from Mary Monroe. I usually love her books and had not read her in a long time so I was seeking her former glory. This book was stupid for lack of a better word. I was annoyed by every character as they were one-dimensional and flat. No one had personality. It jumped all over the place. Annette's behavior was downright horrendous and I really hoped Pee Wee would have left her. Though Pee Wee was no different, at least he had a valid and very serious issue. It w ...more

I immediately hated this book when I first began reading it. I suppose I was taken aback by how quickly the action unfolded. After you read so many books in a series, you begin to root for specific characters, only to see their downfall as the series progresses. There were quite a bit of flashbacks through out the novel which were slightly annoying. The novel did get better and ended with a bang.

I have to admit, out of the God Don't Like Ugly series, this one has been my least favorite. It was so off the mark for me. This one is about Annette having an affair on Pee Wee. The story was akward and made the characters seem so off the wall. And the ending was a little bit crazy as well. I will continue to read Mary Monroe because she is an awesome writer, but this one didn't do it for me :(
Read this for book group...and the only reason I finished it was because I wanted to see how this mess would end. This is the second Mary Monroe novel I've read and the second time I've wondered whether she has an editor and, if so, whether he/she has read anything since high school. And this is the second time I'll add the disclaimer that I don't generally read mainstream fiction...
This book was ok, Also the rhythm was off she used profanity like it was going out of style, I know certain circles dont have an extensive vocabulary, but somehow it seemed over used and out of place. it could have went a few diff ways for me, especially the ending, I didn't like how it ended but she can't win em all. Nothing will ever touch God Don't like Ugly
This is the worst Mary Monroe book I've picked up so far. If you're reading the "God" series, do yourself a favor and stop after #2.

I'd always liked Annette and her sense of values, however she's a completely different person in this book; after 1000 or so pages, there's too little explanation for such a drastic character change. Thumbs down.
Mary Monroe has created a modern urban, female Ethan Frome who wrecks her marriage due to an affair. Older women can relate to the situation of a woman in her forties who succumbs to the flattery of a younger man. The situations and characters are vivid but believable, but Monroe's writing is often trite, wordy, and heavy handed.
I finally finished and I wasn't impressed as I have been with some of her books. Annette had an affair with Louis who played her like a fiddle. She called herself getting even with her hubby, PeeWee whom she thought was having an affair but had prostate cancer. Rhoda is still Rhoda. Jade is still her crazy self.

I liked that this book was so real. It is the kind of story that really happens. The characters were authentic and well drawn. There are lessons taught in this book but they are not done in the usual preachy, better-than-thou way. I enjoyed the book as well as contemplating on the message of the story afterwords.
In my opinion this installment is not the best in the series to say I was a little disappointment is an understatement. Annette and the gang are back in action. The story line's pace starts slow but it heats up midway through the novel. Spoiler alert the ending leaves a opening for another installment.
She did it again! I love how she is so grammatically spoken thru out ever book. feel like I'm going back to English class. And I love it. I'm so tired of Annette saying incredulously. ..I'm going to scream
I did finish this so I figured I had to give it 2 stars, 3 being my minimum to read it again. It is one of the only books that I permanently deleted from my amazon account. I seriously don't know why the average rating is over 3 stars.

I enjoyed it. It started out slow but it was able to hold my attention.
I almost stopped reading this book because it didn't seem to be going anywhere. But I kept on and it sucked me in like a cheesy soap-opera. I ended up liking the book and the quirky characters.
I enjoyed this book as I have all the others in this series. I had been looking forward to this newest book. Annette is one of my favorite characters. I can relate to her in several ways.
This particular book in this series is honestly the worst to me. I was very disappointed in the delivery and writing style. If you are expecting this book to be like the rest you are sadly mistaken.
M.C. Walker
I love this book and vivid characters. The main character Annette is so relate able and true to life that I feel as though I know her and understand her struggle as if we were best friends.
Sylvia Hester
It had its slow moments but overall a good read. Something you would take on vacation or spend a weekend reading. I love Mary Monroe's book but they all seem to have the same theme.
It took my a long time to read this book, it started off kind of slow but got better towards the end I was laughing out loud. Still undecied if I would re-read.
I found the book very enjoyable. Just goes to show how important communication and honesty are in a marriage. I look forward to reading Mary Monroe next book.
I did not expect Annette to be acting this way. I was disappointed in her. But I still enjoyed the book as I do all of her books.
Nicole Davis
This book was okay.It had some nice twist in it, but mainly predictable. it was kind of raunchy at some times. But it was a decent read
