Format: Paperback
Queen Bee was an okay read. It followed Essence, Destiney, and Brazil through their drama but the author never really gave me a chance to get to know the characters before putting them into these crazy situations. The book didn't flow for me and I did not enjoy this as much as I thought I would. Also Queen Bee was the title of the strip club on the back cover but in the book it was called Promiscuous Girl? I was confused and I felt like the synopsis and cover did not reveal what the real story was about. I would not recommend this book. Borrow it don't buy! Or if you want to try something from this author try Reasonable Doubt. That book was much better.

Essence, Destiny and Brazil were all buddies/business participants at the hot strip club "Promiscuous Girl". Essence was the hot headed owner whom as long as she was getting what she wanted: she was straight. She didn't like to be crossed but yet she didn't mind crossing ANY and EVERYONE that got in her way. Destiny was the some what bleak type who listened to others instead of following her own instincts. Then you had Brazil who in my opinion was the mildest of the three, mother and also the one who got the dirty deck of cards dealt to her in which she didn't deserve.

Brazil and Destiny had dreams of opening their own club and of course Essence with her cocky attitude wouldn't stand for the competition. She starts a war, making enemy after enemy. Destiny holds a secret that she leaves with everyone she comes in contact with.

I did have a questions about the title being "Queen Bee". The name of the club on the synopsis was "Queen Bee" (also title of the book) but yet in the book it was "Promiscuous Girl"??? That was confusing but the story's PLOT was on point!

Kudos Mark! for a excellent plot for this story...

Mark Anthony has done his thang this book has action after action and that is what kept me turning pages after pages.

Essence was a woman that was running her strip club business that she got help with 2 of her friends Destiny and Brazil.
But, Essence was a chick that want it all at any means so she set out to get Destiny and Brazil out of the picture.

Destiny was determind to et her hands on Essence and was so hating Brazil. But, in the meantime she living with a secret that will change everyones life at the end.

Brazil was just trying to live life until her life was nearly taken away from her but, she surived and was detemind to out shine Essence and Essence's business. She was doing great until Essence got wind to her and had to end Brazil happiness.

All these women have so much in common with each other. But, you cant' determind who is the REAL QUEEN BEE.

Overall great book I liked it 100% I had my ups and downs about this book due to other reviews but, some reviews I can't agree on because I found it exciting and everyone envy each other that's what kept me turning pages after pages.

So great book.

Author Mark Anthony's latest novel Queen Bee chronicles the lives of three friends; Essence, Brazil and Destiny. Essence is the owner of a popular Queens Strip club that Destiny and Brazil both help her run. When Essence discovers that Brazil and Destiny have plans of opening up their own strip club with money that Brazil's been skimming from her she sets off a chain of events that will leave no girl unscathed.

Essence is not only ruthless but she's also a master manipulator. However even the best laid plans can go astray and each lady learns that lesson the hard way! With almost a new twist in each chapter calling Queen Bee a page turner would be an understatement. There's non-stop drama from the opening pages till the draw dropping conclusion.

Queen Bee has the same type of treachery Mark Anthony displayed in Harlem Heat add to that the female fortitude he displayed in Lady's Night and the result is a read that you will literally be unable to put down.

By Anna J on February 11, 2009
Format: Paperback
Mark created a grimey tale of betrayal that left no stone unturned. Brazil, Essence and Destiny went from ashy to classey as their reign from top of the line pole dancers to owning their own strip club got them paid the right way. But when friendship, sex and money mix there is bound to be repercussions. These girls didn't really have a friendship after all, it was more of a convinience to see who can make the first move the fastest. With players like King Tut(who totally shocked me with his actions) to Shabazz(who confirmed for me that no cop can be trusted), I was taken on a whirlwind of emotions that left me spent at the end of the book.
This is classic Mark Anthony. The grit, the grime, the lies, the betrayal, the double crossing...all of that. This was an enjoyable read that satisfied me in the end and I would definitely recommend those who haven't read it to get your own copy.
Now...what's next? Mark, I need a new read ASAP!
