I wasn't aware this was a follow up to a previous book I had read by Daaimah S. Poole, "A Rich Man's Baby" but was pleasantly surprised to be able to hear a continuation of the characters Adrienne and Tanisha and be introduced to a couple new characters. In the beginning I was a little lost thinking I hadn't remembered the other book correctly because I did not know who these new women were but then it all came together and I realized the connections. Once the connections were established it mad ...more

This book was great. Ms. Poole never fails to amaze me with her writing. I hated the character Adrienne.

The title alone is a dead giveaway that this book is about gold diggers. I picked up this book as something relaxing and fun to read. However, it was far from relaxing. I don’t particularly like when there are too many protagonist and antagonist to keep track of and also with names that sound bulky in your mouth. It’s too much trying to remember who is what and who did what.

The men in the book were depicted as black athletes who were rich and a bit slow in the brains. The women were all annoyin

I think I may have read this novel from the library but I didn't realize that until halfway through the book. Adrienne needs a reality check and she was stringing poor Zakiya along. Tanisha shouldn't have listened to Adrienne and her poor children wouldn't have suffered. I loved the book but some of the characters really irritated me.

I won a copy of What’s His is Mine through Goodreads. At first, I wasn’t sure if I would like it. Most of the books I read are speculative fiction (sci-fi, fantasy, horror) or non-fiction. However, I am very glad now that I got the opportunity to read this book.

What’s His is Mine is a moderate-to-fast pace novel that follows the lives of four very different women with one thing in common: their lives are intertwined with various pro athletes, as well as each other. Zakiya and Cherise start off w

What's His Is Mine is a continuation of A Rich Man's Baby. It continues the story of Adrienne and Taniesha, with two added characters of Zakiya and Cherise. Let the drama begins.

At the end of A Rich Man's Baby, Adrienne had been kicked back to Philly by her baby's father DeCarious. She was determined that she would win DeCarious back, because a 9-5 wouldn't give her the life she was accustomed to. So she schemes, plots, and plan to get DeCarious back but you can't do dirt and expect to stay clea

I won this book through the firstreads giveaway here on goodreads, but it took so long to actually get this book that I had marked it as never recieved. It was months before the book finally arrived, and when it did the UPS guy just slid it behind my screen door and left. I'm glad it did finally arrive though becuase it was a lot of fun to read! I was in need of a break from the memoirs I have been stuck on since the begining of the year, and this was the perfect book for that.
This is the story

Great read!! Full of drama from beginning to end. Daaimah has done it again. You wont be disappointed but @ least one of the characters in the story will work your last nerve!!

This book took me a while to finish due to loads of school work. The book is not boring, but it's also not too interesting and "catchy". If i really like a book, i find time anyway possible to read it throughout the day. this book didnt appeal to me much. It doesn't get interesting until a fourth through the book in my opinion. Don't get me wrong the book is great, but its also not on my top list.

I'm "rating/reviewing" because it was a FirstReads win that I haven't received yet. If and when I receive it a review will be placed here instead of this message and the 1 star changed. (I would hope.)
I hate to do this but a rating and review needs to be placed here IMO from what I've seen in the past with FR wins. Hopefully I'll be able to change it soon.

This is really a 3.5. The read was good . My only issue was one of the characters didn't really fit. When it came time for her part it weighed down the read. Other than that,Ms. Poole worked it out. This is my second book by her and I am pleased.

I am a true fan of Daaimah Poole's work but this book started off slow for me. It did pick up toward the middle,becoming very entertaining toward the end of the book. I do recommend it to others.
