She's No Angel by Janine A. Morris is about Charlene Tanner, a girl who made it out of the hood. She grew up living the street life. Finally, Charlene is living the life of true happiness. This all started when she met Isaac Milton. Only Isaac does not know the old Charlene. She kept that life away from him. He believes he has met the woman of his dreams. And he wants nothing more than to spend the rest of his life with her and start a family. Things turn to worse as some of Charlene's secrets get out.

Morris had me confused. I was not sure what was so detrimental that Charlene could go on for half the book with a secret but when the secret was finally revealed it just seemed as though it was nothing. Things were blown out of proportion and then the book took a drastic change. I was able to get through it without a problem, but would not be able to recommend it to my book club as there appears very little to discuss. Something was missing and for it to be a compelling story, the plotting needed a little more meat. The premise was good but I suggest the author rework the storyline to hold readers' attention.

Charlene is beautiful but has never really known it. She has done a great many wild things in order to see herself reflected in the eyes of others -mainly young men. She never really has anyone to go to for advice because her mother is strict but just isn't into discussing the kinds of things Charlene needs to discuss in her young years. Then she meets Isaac, the perfect man for her. Isaac has been waiting for someone like Charlene and it looks as if they are going to be the ideal couple. What Isaac doesn't know are all the secrets Charlene has; she has never really lied to him - except by omission. She came from the wrong side of the tracks but has gone to college and moved on from that world. Unfortunately, that world continues to follow her, and it is especially disturbing because she doesn't want Isaac to find out what kind of girl she was.

Isaac is ready to marry, settle down and start a family. Charlene's sister keeps urging her to come clean with Isaac. Charlene keeps promising to tell him, but it just isn't in her quite yet, to do so. Men from her past keep slipping up on her, forcing her to tell Isaac bits and pieces of her past. As she suspects, he becomes distant. Should she tell him her really big secret? She trembles just thinking about it.

SHE'S NO ANGEL by Janine A. Morris is an engaging novel that I couldn't put down. The characters were so alive and present I found myself actually talking to Charlene. Charlene's situation is one I am sure many young girls find themselves in as they attempt to deal with their feelings of inferiority, ugliness, lack of real love and who only have their peers they can really talk with about their situation. Isaac's character is like so many men: wanting their women to be pure, but are they that pure themselves? It is a novel well worth reading.

Talk about tears. I was very saddened. Honestly, I would not have risked things for a man who could just up and call it off without an ounce of regret. I do understand she lied ...a lot, and she should have been straightforward. Yet, he did not have to be so cruel with the way he talked to her. I also thought the book was unfinished. What was really going on with him and Lacy? Why the devil was she in his bed? I was angry at Charlene, disappointed, and strangely enough sad for her. She did not have a high regards about herself. She was beautiful on the outside but ugly on the inside with her younger ways. I hate sad endings.

Very interesting and quick read. The storyline may be somewhat transparent to someone you know or a situation someone you know has been in. It's good to see growth in both main characters, Charlene and Isaac. Definitely worth reading!!!

Charlene has done some things that she is not proud of. She has done a pretty good job of overcoming obstacles in her past in order to have a bright future. Charlene should be on cloud nine when her longtime boyfriend Isaac proposes to her but she's not. She loves Isaac but there is a life altering secret that she's kept from him that might destroy their relationship. Things get complicated when a series of events forces Charlene to come clean with Isaac about her past. Will Isaac be able to still marry Charlene once he knows the truth?

She's No Angel is a thought-provoking novel by Janine A. Morris. Morris eloquently tells a tale of a bad girl gone good. You will feel the uncertainty of Charlene as she struggles with her secret past and how she has to come to terms with it. What makes this novel stand out is the wonderful message of self-love and self-respect. Readers will see the transformation in Charlene when she starts to realize that she is worthy of having true love and happiness. The moral of this story is that women need to respect themselves before they can expect that same respect from a man. This story is also full of emotional scenes that really tug on your heart-strings. She's No Angel is heart-wrenching and insightful. Janine A. Morris has done an excellent job of bringing us a good novel with a well-crafted storyline and characters.
