All That And A Bag Of Chips
PLOT: When Venice Taylor goes away to college she's torn between the old feelings she has for the love of her life Jarvis and her newfound passion with Craig a friend of her brothers.

CRITICISMS: You cannot make me believe two guys this in love would share one woman this long.

*Ok about the "heifer in 311" that got caught screwing with the other girl's "piece". Yeah, she gets whooped by "main chick" and then turns around and whoops her man. But who does Moniqu

A tangled web of deception and lies mixed with some college drama. It was too much at times and during the story I was like...really???...but I finished it.

Even in the youthful, exploratory days of college. This was revealed to me in a wonderful way by Darrien Lee in her exceptional debut novel ALL THAT AND A BAG OF CHIPS...From it's inception, this reader was drawn into the drama of Venice Taylor as she shared a UNIQUE relationship with Jarvis. They have experience more stuff BEFORE their separate college departures than some of us do in our entire lives.
Heading to separate campus, their eternal passion is brought under fire when Craig Bennett app

My coworker told me about this author and I was so lost. She recommended the book to me and once I started to read it. I couldn't put it down. I stayed up all night to find out what was Venice going to do. Venice was torn between to lovers it had me on the edge of my seat. As my grandchildren slept, I am in my room screaming and squirming in my bed because I was not agreeing with Venice. Now that I am done with the book I am so open to find out what happened next.

I have mixed feelings about this story, I found it verbose. Too many unnecessary details that had me bored.

I was very irritated with Venice immaturity and found the character to be self absorbed. She was juggling two men and they had to absolutely adore her or she would start crying.

I would have enjoyed it more if it was not so drawn out.
i really loved this book an i still read it now and then.
