Zane, Benxi, and Mekhi's careers are on the brink of superstardom. But each has a past that's threatening to catch up with them.

First can I say I have been waiting on something new from Rhonda McKnight and boy did she deliver. Almost there reads like a novel, but is a prequel to a longer book. This prequel is the story of Benxi, Zane and Mekhi. Benxi is a singer from Tampico Georgia. She thinks by running away from a strict grandmother and some other things I'm not gonna mention that she can outrun her demons. Mekhi is music producer who thinks he can give Benxi her next big hit. And then there's Zane. Zane is a supermod ...more

What will happen next?

This prequel cleared up some things about Benxi and why she is the way that she is.
She is as broken as Sameria was in the first book of this series.

Mehki has issues too but my heart was caught up with Zannia. Wondering what her complex story is. Her brother, Zander has deep history with Mehki. What is the deal with that?

And how is Sameria going to play into all of this drama?

This prequel leaves the reader with a lot of questions.

And I enjoyed every bit of the intrigue. Th

I promise you will not put this book down until the very end! Wow, Rhonda..you did your thing on this one! I have enjoyed all of the books in the Samaria Jacobs series, but this one here! You don't often get a backstory on the characters in books you love, but "Almost There" really opened my eyes to Mekhi, Benxi, Cig, Zanaire and Zander! I kinda want to go back and start all over with the series before "Shame on You" comes out!

This is a very easy and quick read and it does not disappoint!

Another great read from Rhonda McKnight! 'Almost There' was definitely a teaser and now I'm even more excited to read 'Shame on You'. I love that I was able to learn more about Mekhi and Benxi from the beginning. Even though I had my reservations about Benxi, she's definitely starting to grow on me. I'm also curious to see how Zane will fit into all the madness. Lol! November 8th can't come soon enough!

Well alright then!

I don't know why, but I was prepared not to like this book! Needless to say, my brain must be on vacation! This book is awesome sauce!

Digging into Benxi's history was a great idea. It explains the story behind the person. I felt this one. The dialog is so engaging. This story draws you in and holds you tight.

I understand the disclaimer, although you didn't need it. Great job Ms Rhonda!

Great book!

Things are not always what they seem! Benxi, Mekhi and Zannia all had success but where still not happy. I can't wait for the next book! This author never disappoints me!

Even as she pursued degrees in Textile Technology, Organizational Leadership and finally, Adult Education, Rhonda McKnight’s love for books and desire to write stories was always in the back of her mind and in the forefront of her heart. Rhonda loves reading and writing stories that touch the heart of women through complex plots and interesting characters in crisis. She writes from the comfort of ...more
