I will admit, I haven't kept up with this series,but with this book, I plan to go back and read what I've been missing. By now, Venus, is the mother of a little girl that she fought her ex Airic and his "appearances" wife tv evangelist Trevelle about in court. In this book,a whole new can of worms open up. First, Venus' hubby company may be in danger when his partner comes bringing havoc and trouble to their door. Then, Venus gets the job of her life when does the floral arrangements for the dau ...more

"I really didn't like this book.[return][return]I couldn't identify with any of the characters, had no sympathy for any of them (except a minor one - Keisha), and had no idea why they made the choices they did. So many of those choices were bad ones, meaning that bad things happened as a result. One of the characters even wonders why it seems that every time happiness is within his grasp, it disappears, but it doesn't occur to him that his awful choices have any bearing on his life. Everyone's s ...more

I've had mixed emotions about Venus. She's the protagonist in the Nappily... Series. She was actually likeable in this book. BUT, I don't know if it's me? The characters seem to have an awful lot of drama in their lives. extortion, shady friends, kidnapping, baby daddies, on and on. Plus, it use to be that we got Venus's point of view. Maybe one other person. In the first book she was reeling from being jilted by her boyfriend of four years. We heard from the woman he dated (and married) after h ...more

The story was only ok. The copy I read was an ARC so some things might have changed for the real release.

The book takes several different first person points of view, which were not clearly articulated at the start of chapters, thought that might change in the non-arc version ( i would hope!). In one place the point of view changed in the middle of a chapter. Even if these switches were clearly marked I don't think this would be an effective technique for this story.

The possible suspenseful pa

I won this in a book give-away. Being an uncorrected advance copy is extremely annoying, as there are errors everywhere. Add to that, I don't like jumping into the middle of a series of books; all through reading this, I've felt like I'm missing something not having read the previous books about these characters. I almost gave up before I was half-way through, but as much as I don't like picking up a series in the middle, I hate abandoning a book more. I should have just skipped ahead and read t ...more

I think this one might be my favorite so far in the series! It had me excited about what was coming next with every chapter, and I love that. The whole book I was trying to guess who was doing the monologue and I was always bouncing back and forth. I loved the twists and turns in the plots, and I think a lot of the relationship issues are ones that happen quite often and were so easy to relate to.
