I was also impressed how real life missing persons were mentioned to bring awareness to this as well. There will be no disappointments with this book.

I enjoyed reading it from beginning to end. If I could change one thing about this book it would be the title. I felt it didn’t give the book any justice. When they say don’t judge a book by its cover this would be the example. If I was looking in the store for this book I would have pasted it by unless I picked it up and read the back cover. Please don’t sleep on this one it was really good. I love the way she portrayed women sticking together. How they accomplished so much together. The ending did surprise me. I didn’t think she would turn them at the end.

This book was a page turner that you just don’t want to put it down. I enjoyed being in the world of Annette and Timothy temporally. Ms. Anderson have done a very good job of pulling us into their world. Annette’s character of a strong black women was something that every women who thinks that her situation is one of a kind. It was her sassiness and determination that kept me turning the pages. I love Timothy, with his determination to get his girl and he never gave up. With all the racial tension that is going on in the world right now, it is nice for me to read something that gives us the other side. This book was funny and sometimes had me jumping up saying yes!!!. I recommend this book as one of your summer read. Ms. Anderson I will be reading your other books.
This is my first time reading the work of Mr. Navi Robins.

I couldn’t put this book down and if his other books are as riveting and phenomenal as this one, he has a follower for life. I love the story of Dr Daniel and Ayana. Although they came from different paths, life always has a way of bringing you full circle. Mr. Robin showed us that whatever life throws at you, we always have to beat the odds.
Mr. Robins keeps you so intertwined with his writing; it just keeps you coming back for more. I became very emotional as I read some parts of this book; but I had to find out the outcome. Love this book!!! I highly recommend this book as a must read novel.

At an age when most teens (14) are deciding what to wear to school, Nikki has to constantly be aware of her surroundings and scuffle to survive.

The Author tells the story about Tracy Mitchell who was following her dreams as a Journalist in the Hip-Hop world and wrote for the publication called the Real. Miss Mitchell’s world came crashing down and was banished from the hip-hop world. But Tracy went from one extreme to the next. The Author pulled you into the character’s as you read the story. For a moment I felt like I was living in Tracey’s world. I liked how the book had you wondering what it going to happen next.

Willis McDaniel is the toThis book was definitely a throwback to a time that has long been gone but not so long that the story still occurs globally. Willis McDaniel is the top man when it comes to the drug game in detroit, Michigan. He is well respected and also very feared by those that run in the circles of the drug game, whether they are addicts or hustlers. Then there are the haters. New comer Lennie Jack thinks he can take Willis McDaniels and replace him as the drug kingpin in town when the opportunity presents itself. funny how things go as a junkie provides Lennie with some information on a shipment Willis has coming in, Jack steps in and makes off with the dope which sends Willis into a rage. this type of nonsense will not be tolerated no matter how many heads have to roll. the police and the citizens of Detroit have their hands full as Willis will stop at nothing to find out who started a war with him. this book is action packed from beginning to end. the reader will enjoy the side stories that are intertwined with the main one. i didn't find any typo's in this book nor were there any words used out of context. the author has written this so that the reader will find themselves anticipating what happens next.I definitely recommend this book.

I must admit, I didn't know what to expect when I began reading this book. I never imagined the emotional rollercoaster I'd go on as I read about this woman's pain, embarrassment, and most importantly faith. I ended up not wanting to put this book down because I wanted to know what happened next. My suggestion for other readers is to have a pen and pad ready. There will be things in this book that will encourage you. Acacia takes us into not only her pain but that of her two daughters. Her unfaithful husband decides one day he doesn't want to be married anymore, he wants to try something else. Naturally this causes turmoil in everyone's lives but somehow she uses her faith to remain strong and get herself and her daughters through. Mrs. Slaton, thank you for sharing your story. You and truly an encouragement to others. Best wishes.
This book starts exactly where the first one left off. Jeffrey is missing and Raevyn is suspect #1. The problem is that she's being framed. All she didThis book starts exactly where the first one left off. Jeffrey is missing and Raevyn is suspect #1. The problem is that she's being framed. All she did was fall asleep next to him. How did he disappear while she slept? That doesn't make sense. Where did he go? Who's doing this? Who would want to set her up and why? This book is fast paced. Raevyn must mourn while still keeping her grades up. She must deal with the house games but watch her back at the same time. There are new love interests but she wants to stay true to Jeffrey. A picture of her father and another woman bring on an entirely new situation and set of questions. We FINALLY find out who B is and what his or her problem is with Raevyn. We learned in The Legacy that Necole Ryse definitely knows how to end her book with a cliffhanger and she goes to a new level with this one. I have no choice but to give this book 5 stars. It was a nail biting page turner to the very end. I can't wait for the final book!

In part 2 I WA reunited with Tina and Darren at a more mature part of their lives and relationship. There was something sexy and powerful about the female being the most sexual in the relationship. I loved how driven Darren was however he shocked me with his decisions! Jeanty certainly has a active imagination and superb writing skills. I took to Tina's family, their bond and love is completely to die for. From the acknowledgments to the snippets I was not disappointed!
