I don't know why I didn't review this when I read it. Now I don't remember enough to get in depth. I'll go with what I remember but be forewarned - it won't be much.
The editing was about what you'd expect. It's far from the worst I've seen and also not up to par with the average edited books out there.
I feel that Turner would have been better off keeping this to a 1 or 2 book minumum instead of the 3 or 4 books it actually is. While I do love the characters and enjoyed reading about them the story just wasn't there to merit 4 books. I can't wait for authors to get off of the series kick. Leave it to only writing a series when it's called for.

Eva Leger How weird. I usually add in some sort of review but must have forgot for this one.
I did like it. Turner is one of the two first urban fiction writers I ever read and I've liked her since I found Riding Dirty on I-95.
This wasn't her best IMO but it's worth reading if you've followed the series. I wish the characters had maybe only been in two books instead of 3/4. Sometimes I think authors take series way too far but that's just me - so many people seem to love long series. Let me know how you like it!
