I actually, read Torn before Mina's Joint so I was familiar with Mina. But reading her story, wow, what drama awaits her. The moment she made eye contact with Victor, it was sexy. Hell, Victor was down right sexy and I just wanted to keep reading about him, not that jerk Andrew. Mina is running her business and is engaged to the mayor's son. With a public image to uphold Mina tries
This book is just amazing. I love how Mina and Victor finally gets it right and be together at the end. All the twists and turns, all the secretes that ended up being revealed will have your mouth stuck open. I suggest everyone should read this book .
Really great read.. Loved that Mina and Victor finally got it right, and that Andrew got what was coming to him.

I've had this book on my kindle for a while but just took the time out to read it. I loved Victor's character, I'm happy Mina stopped playing and made the right decision in the end.

Outstanding story! I will be reading more from Keisha Ervin.
This book was okay while reading this I felt like I've read a book like this once before. Andrew was a fucking jerk - I dont know why Mina didn't toss his confused, twisted, big headed ass to the curve. I appreciate Ms.Ervin's writing ability but it just wasn't for me. In my opinion I wanted this book to live up to the standards of Chyna Black but it failed to do that :-(
OMG . This is a M U S T R E A D *
I read this book over night , & I loved every second. Best urban book I've Read so Far . I feel somewhat lucky to have read this book & feel kinda sorry for those who haven't :-P
I love Mina & Victor's relationship it even had me second guessing my own LOL . anywho Those who haven't read this book you are sure MISSING OUT**
I absolutely love this novel. Mina's Joint is a page-turner. I enjoyed the characters & the plotline. The characters in this novel & the trials they endure/overcome can really help so many young ladies going through the same situations; it can even serve as a guide for young women who may encounter such issues in their interpersonal relationships. Great book!
I had high expectations for this book because I love Keisha Ervin, but the book was not that good to me. It held my attention for a few parts and then completely didn't have my attention for a lot of other parts. I'm glad I read it and got it out of the way, but I won't be reading it again and will be getting rid of my copy.

I really liked this book because it was a good love story. I really could feel the love between Mina and her beau. It had some drama in it but i wouldnt say this book was based on the drama. I liked it. It was well put together and the love was so clear to see. Maybe I'm just a sucker for real love!
Desiree Sligh
Yet again Keisha Ervin didn't let me down! I fell in love with Mina and Victor! I'm just a hopeless romantic and I love love stories! I hated Andrew and he go what he deserved! I liked the ending but it left me wondering if she is ever going to write a sequel or wrote a sequel to this book! I want more!
Shay Thomas
I loved this book, read it every chance I got would have finished it same day if I wasn't busy. I was so in love with the Victor character, him and Mina was made for each other, the ending caught me off gaurd though I was wondering if it was going to be a sequel to this book ...Must Read <3 <3 <3

I was sceptical about reading this book, but Keisha Ervin is a good author whose books I enjoy reading. I was told by one of my good friends, who says I need intervention to get the book, glad I did. Another good read!
It's very detailed and keeps you entertained. A lot of action goes on in this book and many interesting characters each are very unique.

Mina's Joint was just okay to me, I think that that the book reminded me of another writer's style but still had a good story line
