This was a very clean urban fiction. I don't recall any cursing and not sexual graphic at all. The story line had a great message and was delievered in a unique manner. It was a page turn for me because I finished it quickly and appreicated what I read.

I believe this book had the potential to be a 5 star book. There were some awesome characters but they were not developed fully. The book was very focued on the main charcters and seem to have forgotten the supporting characters are sometimes the best part of the story. The writer made reference to her previous books that I'm unfamilar with so that was kinda weird to me.

I do look forward to reading more from this writer.

Noelle Dresden has a voice of a songbird and wants to pursue a career in the music industry. Her dream is always placed on the back burner, just like the relationship with her boyfriend, Jonah. He wants to have his cake and eat it too, but Noelle wants much more and that is taking the relationship to the next level. Jonah says he is not ready for the commitment.

Noelle wins a spot on "House of Swag," a reality show that is looking for the next mega star. She takes it and starts concentrating on her career. She meets different individuals that are associated with the reality show while living in the house. There are some who are in her corner and preparing her to become the next big thing, especially Monroe Chase, the show's creator who seems to have a thing for Noelle, and the chemistry is mutual. Then there are others who will do anything to see her fail. She is determined to be crowned the next Swag superstar and accomplish her life long dream and will let nothing stand in her way.

"Swag" was a great easy read, being that it's a second installment it can stand on its own. The novel was focused on relationships and never giving up your goals and dreams. "Swag" has much swagger but also is full of drama like no other. It will keep you laughing at the same time. I'm looking forward to more good reads from Monica Marie Jones.

Noelle Dresden can sing like a bird, but one thing she needs is more confidence in self. Although Noelle's confidence is not what it should be she decides to pursue her dream of becoming a famous singer. Her boyfriend, Jonah, is not very supportive of her dreams and will not commit. However, once Noelle decides to pursue her dreams, Jonah will have to show and prove. Will he be able to support her or will his ego get in her way? Swag by Monica Marie Jones breaks down the story and allows the reader to feel what is going on with these characters.

Noelle's decision to be a house guest on the reality show, House of Swag, changes her life forever. She will get the opportunity to showcase her real talents and gain some confidence. She will also find out what it is like to be pursued by a man other than Jonah. What she did not bargain for in her pursuit of fame was the deceit and games that swirl around the music industry. Will Noelle be able to keep her head above water or will she be consumed by her ambitions? And what impact will her decisions have on her relationship with Jonah?

Swag is a wonderful, contemporary novel that will keep the reader caught up in the storyline. I recommend this novel to all who love an entertaining, fast-paced, current novel

After just finishing FLOSS (The Floss Series) I was very anxious to read Swag to see what happened to the characters, but this book is not a sequel to Floss, so be prepared. This is definitely a stand alone book which stood well on its own. It was great catching up with Dionysus and seeing what a positive turn around her life has made. She really did a complete 180 from the way she behaved in FLOSS (The Floss Series). Noelle was such an authentically written character that you couldn't help but relate to her. The maturing she did by the end of the book was really commendable. Jonah, wow didn't really see that ending coming. I enjoyed this book a bit more than FLOSS (The Floss Series), probably because the characters had closure. I am still intrigued to know what happened with Jabez and Abel, so I'm hoping Intrigued that is mentioned at the end of this book will be published sometime in the near future.

Reading this book and currently residing in Detroit, I thought to myself, it would really be cool to see a reality show play out just the way it did in Jones "Swag." I believe that the main character Noelle represents all women at one or any giving phase of their life who simply do not see their value or worth. Sometimes, it takes a life changing moment or two for a person to finally wake up and see they are amazing just as Noelle did.

Not realizing that she deserved the best in life and everygood thing this life has to offer, Noelle, enters a competition on a major reality show. Monroe, the creator of the show was astounded and simply amazed at her audition and as a result, she was selected as a contestant. Despite of Noelle, suffering from low self esteem and the on-going drama brought on by a six year relationship with her boyfriend Jonah, she has the personality and the welcoming spirit of a good hearted woman from the South. There is however another contestant by the name of Taylor who's personality is just the opposite of Noelle's. Cutthroat, and very scandalous, there's nothing this woman will not do to win.

Speaking of scandalous, certain characters from Jone's book "Floss", make a grand appearance in this novel as well. Ms Dionysus is back. For those of you who are aware of her, she put the "S" on scandalous and "H" on Hoe back in the day when she was in the process of finding herself. I was proud to read that Di has made some changes for the better in her life. Infact, she becomes the one real true friend that Noelle ends up relying on as she goes on this journey as a singing contestant trying to win more than just a contest. Noelle is also on a conquest to win first place at simply loving herself.
