Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

After sexual reassignment surgery turns Charles into Celess (last seen in Miasha's Secret Society), she's discovered by Brad, a New York–based photographer working for Bazaar. In a breathlessly improbable, and often X-rated, series of events, Celess quickly becomes a model, parlays her abundant charms into major gigs, signs with a top modeling agency and moves to the West Coast. There, outrageous Celess reconnects with some old benefactors in trying to break into the entertainment business, and befriends Si-Si, a Beverly Center clerk and wannabe star. Si-Si harbors a dark secret that will rock Celess's world. O, an ex-lover Celess thought was murdered, comes back to rock her in a very different way. Miasha scores again with another steamy, scandalous dispatch about one crazy hot trannie. (July)

More About the Author

Miasha arrived on the literary scene in 2006 with her debut novel, Secret Society to raving reviews and an array of national press including BET, CBS, CN8 and The Wendy Williams Experience. Coined "A Writer to Watch" by Publisher's Weekly, Miasha became just that. Featured in national magazines like Essence, Vibe, Philadelphia Magazine, Jet and later in Elle (the first urban literature author to grace the pages), Miasha has been very visible. Her presence was felt even stronger just four months later when she released her top selling sophomore novel, Diary of a Mistress. Known for having extravagant release parties, the Diary of a Mistress launch included a fashion show and a comedy show featuring Kevin Hart. It is no wonder fans of Miasha's have come to expect a high level of excitement and intrigue from the writer superstar.

In 2007, Miasha released her third title, Mommy's Angel, a heartfelt drama close to home. Having grown up with both parents addicted to drugs, she wrote Mommy's Angel at the early age of fourteen when she was able to channel the emotions the main character was going through in the book. This authenticity landed the book on the best sellers list and Miasha on the cover of Black Expressions. Less than a year later, Miasha celebrated the release of Sistah for Sale, a cinematic read about a girl growing up in Miami's sex trade. Averaging two books a year, Miasha was making history in the literary industry--much the way she did when she first entered it.

Unlike many first time authors, particularly in the urban arena, Miasha did not have to self-publish before getting a deal. Instead, she garnered interest from several major publishing houses causing a bidding war to ensue. Publishing powerhouse Simon and Schuster was the highest bidder, granting Miasha a six-figure deal. Since then Miasha has been a trailblazer, putting out back-to-back best sellers, including a sequel to her first and most provocative novel, Secret Society titled Never Enough. Following Never Enough was Chaser, a story about a dangerous love triangle within the underworld of wreck chasing, and her most anticipated novel, 'Til Death, the third installment to the Secret Society trilogy.

In addition to releasing seven titles under Simon and Schuster, Miasha contributed to Diamond Playgirls, an anthology published by Kensington Books. She also went on to release an eBook independently, titled The Return of Chatman; bringing forth the launch of her very own eBook publishing company, Fifth Avenue Entertainment. Through Fifth Avenue, Miasha not only publishes her own works but the digital works of top writers in urban fiction and in November 2010 she published the company's first paperback novel, When the Cake is Made, which she co-authored with Real Housewife of Atlanta, Lisa Wu Hartwell. The novel follows the lives of three women when they intertwine after three disaster weddings and a dress burning ceremony.

A vivid imagination and an extreme work ethic, Miasha has not just limited herself to books. In 2008 she and her husband Rich Coleman, produced the stage play adaptation of Secret Society. The show sold out every date and venue and went on tour in 2009. In 2010 she became the first author with an iPhone/Android app. Yet again Miasha has proven that dreams can come true despite adversities. And this mantra is what she promotes as heavily as she does her brand. Forming the Ask Miasha Foundation, which assists underprivileged youth academically, economically, and socially, Miasha is steadfast about giving back and encouraging people not to dream their lives but to live their dreams.

Fashion forward, trendsetting, and a marketing genius, Miasha stands out in the book business for her style and promotions tactics as much as for her brilliant plot-twisting tales. But overall, she stands out as a dynamic individual whose intense efforts and hard work is displayed in everything she throws herself into from her businesses to her family, which is comprised of a husband and two sons.

Miasha and her family reside outside Atlanta, Georgia.

Celess is back trying to pick up the pieces of her life. Celess' best friend Tina was killed, and this incident has left her alone, suicidal and disfigured. She also lost the love of her life, Michael, when he learned of her devastating secret. Celess comes out of her depression and soon carves a new life for herself. She lands a contract at a top modeling agency that leads her to the big lights of Los Angeles and Hollywood. Celess has a new love and a new best friend named Si-Si. Life is looking good until a series of events leads Celess and Si-Si literally running for their lives. Will Celess and Si-Si live the life that they always wanted or will it all blow up in smoke?

Never Enough is a wonderful sequel to Secret Society by Miasha. Miasha once again dives readers into the turbulent life of Celess. You will see the transformation of Celess as she goes from being deeply depressed to being one of Hollywood's A-list celebrities. Readers will be swept away in the glitz and glamour of Celess and Si-Si as they make their way to the top. There is also a shocking ending that you will need to pay close attention to. Never Enough is full of the signature drama and head-spinning revelations that Miasha is known for.

Great Novel but not excellent, I thought Secret Society was better. The sequel to Secret Scoiety, Celess returns better than ever after having a few operations that transform her into a complete women. After going under the knife and getting rid of the family jewels Celess is ready to live life after her near death incounter. Her skills of digging in men pocket and sleeping around to gain her way to the top leads her to Hollywood where she is a model/actress. Fate takes it's toll and Celess finds herself back in a dangerous surival game brought on by her past dealings with the men she either fell in love with or used to get what she wanted. I thought the story moved to fast and the excitment was gone once Celess no longer had to hide her secret anatomy. Never Enough was still a good read and I will still buy the next installment.

In a lot of ways this novel was better then it's prequel but I do have to say that I am disappointed that Celess didn't seem to learn much of anything after all she has been through. After her best friend was shot to death and Celess was shot in the head at close range after being found out in part one, we find her yet again knocking on death's door and when she pulls through she doesn't become a better person. All she did was learn to hide her secret better by getting tons of plastic surgery, she continues to sleep with men for personal gain, she becomes a drug addict, and she never once was honest with the men she was sexual with. It is hard for me to connect with her character, feel sorry for her, or want good things for her when she continues to deceive and hurt people. I am not talking about the general public, I am talking about the men she sexually entertains without revealing the fact that she is a man. Like the first novel, this one is also very unrealistic in regards to her sleeping around so much yet not ONE of her partners have the slightest inkling that something is different about her then other women. With all that said, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new character Si Si. She is my favorite part of this book and I knew from the get go that she definitely had some secrets of her own. Without her, I don't know if I would have even finished this book. This novel felt rushed and was not very detailed. In the turn of a page three weeks sometimes passed but the light of this book always shined when Si Si came around. We are left with a cliff hanger on the very last page and I must say that I hope part 3 is all about Si Si aka Sienna.

Author Miasha is back with the sequel to Secret Society! Readers will recall when last we saw Celess her double life (posing as a woman and tricking ballers) had caught up to her. Resulting in her disfigurement and leaving her best friend Tina dead. Now ready to make some real life changes Celess not only gets reconstructive surgery but she has sexual reassignment surgery transforming her into the woman she always felt she was.

Ecstatic with her new look and her new lease on life Celess snags a modeling contract and moves to LA to pursue dreams of stardom. Bringing the same determination she used to live ghetto fabulous is now applied to her Hollywood hustle and soon Celess makes a name for herself in tinsel town. But a past that scandalous can't be contained and soon rumors about Celess being a transsexual begin to surface.

Will the demons from her past halt Celess' new beginnings? Even with the support of her new best friend (Si-Si) and the help of some old ones (Ms. Carol, Derrick & Terry) she might not be able to stop the turbulence that's headed her way. Never Enough is a quick read that answers some needed questions but will also leave readers with new ones. It also sets the stage for Miasha to link two books together and hopefully the final installment will tie together all three.

NEVER ENOUGH by Miasha picks up where her book, Secret Society, ends. Celess is recovering from her wounds and the loss of her best friend when her doctor suggests that perhaps she should go through the sex change operation to become a woman, and avoid further disasters. Celess decides it is a good idea and she sets it up. Immediately, she becomes a fashion model and later, after a move to Los Angeles, becomes involved in a movie. She gets a new best friend, Si-Si, and things are really looking rosy for her.

Out of nowhere comes an old boyfriend who wants to see her again. With reservations, Celess does go to see him and discovers the magic that was once there, is no more. Celess learns he is holding onto a secret that begins to cause problems for her. Is her past going to slap her in the face? Can she overcome these difficulties?

Miasha has penned a rather fascinating tale of a transgender star who wants more and more and pushes all the time to get what she wants and what she feels she needs. It is a page-turner, as the drama surrounding Celess grabs the mind. It is well worth reading.
