Can you say SCANDALOUS...what a THRILLING ENGAGING and colorful cast of characters...and it's SIMPLY HORRIBLE the way Mrs. Chase just leaves us will make you want to reach in and SMACK her throughout the whole tale...she continuously digs a DEEPER hole at each and every SHOCKING twist and turn...her house of cards DEFINITELY tumbles in the end...and even though this is NOT your typical romance I'm still rooting for Tamia and Brandon to have a HEA (smile)...what ca ...more

So, first things first, this is not romance. Anyone who picks up the books because Naomi Chase is a pseudonym of Maureen Smith will be sorely disappointed—not because of the storytelling, but because the genre really isn’t romance.

About the book—can you say, Drama? So much happens, and rather than recap what others have said, I’ll just mention the things that stuck out for me:
-Lots of hot raunchy sex
-Plenty of twists and turns that leave you with your mouth open
-No warm fuzzies in this storylin

It was no fun. I wanted it to be over. The ending was depressing and unfinished. I wish I had not read the book.

I bought this because it was labeled “Erotic Romance” in RT Book Reviews magazine. Unfortunately it was mislabeled and should have been called “Erotic Fiction.” Romance is defined as having a happy ending, this book does not. The couple starts out happy, and then they slowly break up during the book, which again is the opposite of “romance.” I would not have bought it i
Lady Raven RAVE!
this was very good story telling, but I had so many different emotions going on while reading the book. ***MIGHT BE SPOILERS**

This was a very detailed story from beginning to end though as you might already know the end was left as a cliffhanger. Story involves Tamia, Brandon, Dominic, Cynthia and other minor characters. Tamia had everything a good job and boyfriend who is Brandon until Dominic came into her life and turn everything upside down.

You would love to hate Tamia but you can't,

A House of Cards,

Things haven’t always been easy for Tamia Luke. No father, a sick and dying mother and a sister attracted to trouble, there came a time when Tamia had do what she had to do, though she didn’t want to. Years later life has leveled out for her. Things are well at work, she’s up for a promotion and her man is to die for. Things couldn’t get better. What she never considered was they could get worse. With her past following closely in her rear-view mirror, it’s once again time for T

In this tantalizing story, Tamia Luke is on top-of-the-world as all of her dreams and her hard work and sacrifices are about to pay off. Tamia has a loving boyfriend, wealthy attorney Brandon Chambers, and is convinced Brandon is ready to take their relationship to the next level. After several successful ad campaigns, Tamia is now the front runner for a major promotion at work, all she needs to do is score big with the new client. But, the new client, Dominic Archer, wants much more than a succ ...more

Book #1, "EXPOSED" Awesome book. Hot, ghetto, but realistic as hell. I rarely read African American authors anymore because I find their story lines are way too depressing (kids getting shot, people dying of cancer, etc.); who wants to read that shit? I can watch the local news for that. I read to escape everyday reality and I needed to find someone who could deliver a good ethnic story straight from the hood. Naomi Chase did exactly that. I ran out to buy the second book "Deception" and finishe ...more

Excellent book! I was a bit reluctant to read this book, cause I'm a huge fan of romance and knew it wasn't going to end with a HEA. I'm also convinced that Maureen Smith can do no wrong, and didn't want her alter-ego to disappoint me. Well, no worries here. This book was good, but I was so tense reading it, cause I was so worried for Tamia and all the lying she was doing. I was just waiting on the bottom to drop out for her, even though I couldn't decide whether or not I liked her. The whole Ta ...more

Wow...this book!! I'm from St. Croix, USVI and I was so happy to see how the author accurately described the Island and dialects.the story was nice, long and exciting. The words she used had me looking at the dictionary in almost every page. I love learning new words as I read. I can't wait to start part 2.

This books was amazing. Just when you thought you had figured everything out something else happened to totally suprise you. I felt so bad for Tamia at the end. She was truly a victim. Everybody played her. I wanted to strangle Fiona for her part in all this mess. I didnt like Cynthia at all. Brandon's actions were scary at times. He seemed a little crazy.

This book was sooo hot. I can't even begin to tell you how vivid the erotic scenes were.

I was in awe of how Tamia allowed her past to get in the way of her future with that fine man Brandon...

This is a excellent erotic page turner that will keep you aroused and on the edge.... of your seat...among other things...

Get it!

Re-Read it again in anticipation of Betrayal's Release tomorrow

Wow! A really good book.

Picture this, Tamia Luke is dating the man of her dreams, tall, dark, and handsome Brandon Chambers. Brandon is a rising attorney, who doesn't use his clout as the lietenant governor's son, to get what he so desperately wants...partnership at his law firm. Tamia is no slouch either. She is on the verge of a promotion at her advertising job. Things are looking promising for this couple until Dominic Archer enters the picture....

Narration was Really Good!

I listened to this again because I just got the third book and it's been a while and it was just as good this time as the first.

Tamia is in love with Brandon - a hot shot lawyer - but he's from an uppity family and she doesn't have the pedigree to fit in. But Brandon's a good guy and doesn't care what his parents think...he's his own man.

Unfortunately Tamia doesn't figure that out until it's too late. She has a sordid past that she's trying like crazy to keep i

Oh. My. Goodness. That was intense. Most days I hated to turn off my Mp3 player, but tonight I just couldn't, it got too good. I had 4 hours left tonight and I just couldn't turn it off. I just went onto Audible and purchased book 2. I can't wait to start it.
This book had me talkin and laughin out loud in the gym and in the car; the way I talk at movies. I have to say, the story was good, as well as the characters; but some of em had me askin out loud, really Chick? The story was alil suspensef

All I can is wow! This book was riveting from beginning to end. It was nice to finally see a couple not live happily ever after. There were so many twist and turns that I was often saying, I can't believe she is doing this, or this guy is a psycho, or how dumb can she be, and my favorite oh no she didn't! The only part I didn't get was Brandon and Cynthia, she was just so lame, and it seemed like a serious rebound relationship. Brandon loving her was unbelievable to me. I would love to read a Ta ...more

It kept me interested. It was a page turner to me. I found the change in the storyline between the sisters a little unbelievable, but overall, a good read. I did get the sequel.
