Dangerously In Love is easily one of the best urban fiction books I've ever read. I am officially excited ready to start reading every one of Allison Hobbs books. This was filled with non stop drama and almost everything was entirely realistic which is always a nice change from the norm.
There are three main characters in this but others have sizable roles as well. Reed and Dayna Reynolds are a married couple on the outs. They never should have gotten married and only did so for their own selfish reasons. Dayna realized Reed had some problems but like most of women, thought she could mold him a bit to make him how she wanted and if that couldn't happen, she thought they were such that she could deal with. She had no idea the length of his mental and emotional problems. That comes later in the book. :)
Chanella, a.k.a. Sensation, is a dancer who is foolishly dreaming of picking up a man in a strip club to take her out of the misery that is her life. She runs into numerous problems along this route.
A side character by the name of Buttercup is a quirky addition to the story and she worked in real well in my opinion. The same goes for Ammon who comes in at the end although that ran a bit towards the expected.
It's a 'don't miss' for sure!
