The first quarter of the book was pretty uneventful and slow. However, the book soon picked up and was twisting and turning and making me yell out loud, "oh no she didn't!". The erotic scenes were very well written, however I found it strange that right after an erotic chapter the author would then go into a chapter with a church service and religious poetry. Awkward transition, but I guess it shows that even church people have a little freak in 'em.
Overall this is definitely escape fiction. The situation is a bit far-fetched (everyone is rich and horny), in my opinion and I found myself getting angry at the main character Jada for being soooo naive. I couldn't feel sorry for her, I just wanted to know how much more messed up her dating life would get. It did give me an insight into how grown people can get caught up in childish immature relationship games.
If you buy this book, go ahead and buy Never Again Once More at the same time. It's the sequel and you'll need it since this book leaves you hanging at the end.
The characters were shallow and couldn't relate to any of them. I tried figuring out while reading the book what made Jada and Wellington soul mates? To me the concept of "soul mate" was messed up here. Two beautiful, rich, sexy, perfect people who got together because of looks doesn't make them soul mates. The antagonist, Melanie however was pretty crazy.
If you love a whole lot of drama and some romance thrown in, then pick up this book. I guarantee you'll enjoy it. Personally I felt like I was reading one of Tom Joyner's, "It's Your World" dramas... so I'm sticking to my mystery/thriller books.
I'm also tired of the whole Black woman against Black woman battle. Why does this book perpetuate the myth that Black women are incappable of loving, trusting relationships. Why do we have to be so conniving and hateful towards one another?
P.S. How does Melanie find out from a home pregnancy test that she is pregnant with Wellington's baby in less than 48 hours? Don't u have to miss a period before you can use one of those? Morrison's story timeline was ABSURD to say the least!
