Sometimes we know we should leave well enough alone, but like a train wreck about to happen, we just can’t look away. In my review of Carl Weber’s Big Girl’s Do Cry, I wrote the following:

"What really would have set this book over the top for me, and I was actually waiting for it to happen, was for Leon to be revealed as Big Poppa. Now that would have been a mess. The third installment, “Torn Between Two Lovers” will deal with Lorraine, her husband, and her new love Michael. Not sure that Mr. Weber will find the same interest as he did with “Big Girls Do Cry,” only because I found Lorraine’s storyline a bit annoying and unbelievable at times. Jerome's drama would definitely send me back to the bookstore.

When a close friend nudged me towards reading Torn Between Two Lovers, with a smirk on her face, my curiosity was peaked and I decided to take the bait. However, my disappointment soon set in, which was only alleviated by the fact that I checked this book out at the library, and did not purchase it. I don’t mean to go on a tirade about my disdain for sequels, so I will just say that this book is a prime example as to why I avoid them.

Torn Between Two Lovers was obviously written in haste. Although the book was a page-turner (because I just wanted to see who would be Big Poppa, and I must admit I was beginning to think it may be Rashid, Egypt’s husband) it lacked substance. At 190 pages, and nothing mind-blowing going on, Weber could have easily wrapped up this last bit of drama at the end of Big Girl’s Do Cry, which I enjoyed a whole lot more.

There really isn’t much I can say about the book, so I will just send out another plea for writers to PULEEZE stop it with the sequels when you can wrap up the story in one book.

Much Love,
