The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince
In The Most Beautiful, a title inspired by the hit song Prince wrote about their legendary love story, Mayte Garcia for the first time shares the deeply ...more
With the exception of the drug abuse problems which were well-hidden under Prince's clean living claims, this book simply underlined everything I already knew or suspected about him. And good for her for selling it. Prince had no problem selling the stories of his women within his music and certainly did not pay them for it.(less)

I highly recommend it.
I was lucky enough to be given an early copy of this book to read. I expected Mayté to write a book that lacked a lot of personal details of her life with Prince or made Prince look bad in any fashion. This book is very honest, raw, heartbreaking, and even funny at points. I appreciate Mayté's honesty and generously giving the reader a glimpse into some very personal moments in her life. If you are a Prince fan, this book will not disappoint.
I loved her spirit on VH1 and unlike a lot of the other shows, the one in which she was featured was more uplifting then dramatic.
Mayte's portrayal of Prine was tasteful and truly unique to her experiences.
As a huge fan of Prince I was very excited to get my hands on Mayte's book. It's safe to say we all know somewhat about the artist Prince, however, the man Prince was often secret and kept out of the public eye. Mayte's book was going to give the reader an eyewitness account of the artist we loved. My hopes were high for this book, but unfortunately Mayte didn't deliver what I wanted. The title ...more
I have to be honest and say I was on the fence when it came to purchasing this book. It didn't have anything to do with Mayte personally but I have been disappointed in the past when it came to celebrity books. I won't say any names. Ok... I will whisper the name to you.

Back to Mayte...
I watched Hollywood Exes on VH-1 and I knew Mayte was holding back when it came to Prince. I don't blame her because we know Prince + his money could make...more
Oh Goodness, I feel like I have so much to say...first off, if you are thinking this is a book about Prince's life, you are mistaken..although he ...more
I'm a lifelong Prince fan and getting these insights into his life and love just made me love him even more. It was written by someone who truly seems to have loved him completely and that just made it so special and personal.
This will change how you see him in a video or hear his music from now on.
I have always been a fan of Prince, now I realize I am only a fan of his music and not the person I used to be infatuated with as a little girl. After listening to this auto-book, I am now a fan of Mayte Garcia.
I think I connected with her because we are the same age and went through a lot of the same 80's and 90's pop ...more

When Mayte and Prince were courting and got married, I wasn't even born yet. I know Prince through the many Saturday morning house cleanings my parents hosted, blasting 'Kiss' and 'When Doves Cry' all over the house. So really, my first encounter with his personal life was the little ...more
There are people out there that say how disrespectful it was to write this book, but I think it is the people who chose not to read it. That is their right just as it was Mayte's right to write it. This story is the best one I have ever read out of all the books I have about Prince.
I want to take a moment to say thank you to Mayte. Thank you for sharing a part of your life that would be especially challenging for others to write. Writing about personal details are very ...more

This made no sense to me. The sheer irony of it broke my heart all over again.”
