Recommends it for: absolutely no one
I don't like short stories, but I love Miasha and Daaimah S. Poole. I gave it a try and was very disappointed. I don't think it could have been more boring. There was no point, no interest, just nothing...I only read the whole thing hoping it would get better and because I paid for it...Don't eve go to the library to read this book...Don't read it at all.

Recommends it for: Don't Do It To Yourself
Recommended to Brooklyn by: I bought it from someone who didn't like it either
Gets no better than a 2 from me.
I understood the theme: Men Ain't $#!t;
But it's been Done before.
And Way Better too.
All four of these stories seemed to be bogged down with little details: what color everything was and where a particular character sat vs another character.
Yet nothing really happened.
Dior was a Dunce,
Tamara was just an A$$,
and only Deja King and T Styles made me care about their characters.
Chalk this one up as a So So Read and Move On.

Stories with no real ending.
That is a generous 3 stars. This book was just okay.

It is a series of 4 novellas written by 4 different female authors, each about a woman who is moving into a brownstone in New York City.

The first story is about Dior, who comes from Montreal, Canada. I wasn't a huge fan of her story at first, but after reading the others, hers actually wasn't too bad. Dior is a shopaholic and spends too much money (she even runs out of cash on her first day in NYC and can't pay her cab fare). She starts a Myspa
(FROM JACKET) Four beautiful, professional women, living on seperate floors of a Harlem brownstone are about to discover they have a lot more in common than just their address...
Dior's name is no accident-she's got a taste for the finer things in life, and New York City is just the place to find them...(written by Miasha)
Party promoter Tamara has been recruited from Atlanta to open a hot new club. All the women in her family are known for their great looks, great cooking-and the fact that they c

I saw 'Diamond Playgirls' in my local library and I started reading it in hard cover. I liked the book and I thought it was a great book about how not to judge a book by its cover- literally and figuratively. I initially didn't want to read the book thinking it was a risque novel. I picked up the book on my Nook and just finished it today. It was a great book about four women all from different backgrounds who move to New York to become successful on their own , each just happening to move in th ...more

This was my very first collaboration... I went into this project at ease figuring writing a short story would be nothing...I was so wrong...This was my toughest project...Because it was fixed...Basically, your character, setting, and plot is laid out for you so you have to write within those given parameters...Many late nights it took for me to get the story of Dior Emerson done in this urban lit version of Sex in the City.

In the end, I took it as a learning experience...And my fans appreciated

This was a great book I really enjoyed reading all of the short stories. I highly recommend this book to all book clubs and individuals who loves to read trust me u will not be disappointed

Will there be a part two this?????
Each character is by different authors, although the characters don't know each other they all are connected some how. Still tryin to feel it out when i begin to read the next character feels like im at the beginning of the book.

Have read Miasha's work before and will continue to, now the other girls this is my first time reading any of their work, I have to say I am intrigued and looking forward to the other ladies work.
Not a very interesting read. I struggled to finish. Did not capture my attention. Very disappointing as I am an avid reader of these authors books

This book was good.
Daaimah S. Poole and Miasha did okay,but Deja King and T. Styles is what set it off!
I expected more from the ending. Enjoyable enough book though
I saw this in Wal-Mart and it looked pretty good.
I really liked this book.
