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.

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.

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.
