Book Description

Listed at #17 on AALBC.com's 20 Bestselling eBooks of 2012!!


A woman, her married lover, an ex-boyfriend, and the ties that bind them together....

Mona-Lisa Dandridge left her past life behind her years ago and never looked back. But when unforeseen circumstances throw her into the path of a former lover, she is forced to not only face her past, but to relive it. An unlikely love triangle ensues leaving her questioning the decisions she once thought were sound. Will Mona-Lisa make a change or stay the course with her lover? *this is not your ordinary inspirational novel*


Excerpt:

I could see the coach leaning over, placing red, white, and blue basketballs on a rack. He was tall, maybe 6'2”, and very muscular. He exhibited pure power. He must've logged in several hours a week at the gym. He wore black track pants and a tight black t-shirt. His arms were so huge, it looked like they were going to burst out of their sleeves. From that angle, I had a perfect view of his perfect butt. Now, I loved me some Wasif, but this man was fine!

We were only a few feet away from him when Morgan said, “Coach, this is our mom.”

The coach turned around and faced me with a bright smile. A handsome face to match that body. Mm mm mm.

He extended his hand. “Mrs. Dandridge?” he said, but as soon as the words left his mouth, his smile disappeared. His eyes changed. Do I know this man?

I cannot believe how wonderful this book is. When I started reading, I didn't want to put it down. I finished in just a few hours. I hated to read the last page, because this is a book I could read for a long time. I cannot wait for your next book. Thanks Adrienne!

BEEN SO LONG.....This book was soo good!!! I could not put it down and could not wait until my next break at work to read some more! Let me just say that Mona-Lisa, is a good, caring,sensitve, single mother! She thinks that she has all she wants and needs in life. Until something or someone from past throws a monkey wrench in and HONEYYYYY.....Mentally slaps the SUGAHONEYICETEA...outta her! Does Mona-Lisa find out that her life was built merely on lust? I mean life and death does lie in the tongue! She also learns that Prayer can and will change things and God will restore! The twist at the end of the book was great, it left me saying....really...Thompson, you gonna do me like that....lol? Plz, pick up this book and put your reviews on here to help others out!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Story February 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Even though I am single and of a certain age, I found this story quite compelling. From the first chapter I was with Mona-Lisa. She was wrong about a few things but she was always a good mother. Been So Long was a wonderful story to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good Book!! September 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was such an good book! This wasn't your typical "Home Wrecking Mistress" storyline. This storyline was soo much more than that and had much more depth to it than that. This is a story about Mona- Lisa who fell in love at first sight with Wasif back in college even though she was already in a relationship with Corey. But, due to Corey's discipline and focus on school even though they were in a relationship her feelings for him never went beyond "friend". So fast forward 14 - 15 years later and we now find Mona-Lisa with teenage twin boys from Wasif. Whom is married to someone else but really truly does love Mo more than his wife, and lives a double life with two separate families. Mona-Lisa is happy with her life the way things are...... until someone comes into her life and show her that she is actually living the same life on the lines as her mother did. And forces her to relive memories she has taken years to supress & to see her life for what is really is leaving the question of "Is This The Life She Really Wants To Live?" Hope this review aids you in your decision to by the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good discussion book for women..What would you do? October 16, 2012
By C. Boyd
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Despite editing errors this was a good story about a young Black woman with a history of childhood neglect and poverty who escapes her memories by settling for the good life with a man she meets and becomes pregnant by while in college. She falls for this exotic man who is rich, kind and ultimately marries another woman while keeping her on the side. The story begins 15 years later when now with two boys, a home, luxuries and the role of mistress she realizes that she has settled for far less than she could have had. When an old friend reenters her life she realizes how much she has sacrificed just to live a comfortable life. The revelations are heartbreaking and you find yourself saddened by the choices she continues to make and the impact of those choices on others. I would categorize this as light Christian fiction. It is a good discussion book for women.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Read! July 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'd downloaded this book weeks ago, but didn't get around to reading it until this morning... and I read it all the way through. It was absolutely fantastic! Well written, well paced, great characters, great conflict (especially with the school bullying), real emotions (a little bit too much crying - but it was understandable). I just really, really enjoyed this title. Excellent work!
