Format: Paperback
I read this book after hearing how highly recommended it was. I think my hopes were high, but overall I'd call it pretty decent.
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.

First of all, I'll start out positive. The whole concept and story line were pretty interesting. It was nothing like I've ever read before, very original. However there were many times during my read that I thought maybe I skipped over a part, but when I went back to reread it, I realized it wasn't me that missed something, it was just the way the book was written. That fact alone made the book a lot less than it could have been. If you're the type of reader that doesn't pay attention to details and depth, then you'll love this book. If you are the type of reader that likes character development and things that make sense, then it will be kind of disappointing.

I don't like these types of books, but I read it because of the great reviews it received. This book sends you on a rollercoaster ride of drama, drama, and more drama. The author does a great job of keeping you interested throughout. I found myself at some points not wanting to put it down even though I knew it was silly and unrealistic. The story and characters were dumb but the twists and surprises in the plot I could appreciate.
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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Initially, I thought this book would tell a beautiful love story between a successful Black woman and Black man. I couldn't have been more disappointed. There are few, if any, examples of authentic loving relationships between any one in this book. I'm also disappointed that Wellington was so easily "seduced" by the "cherry-red" lipped Melanie. Why couldn't we see him fight tempting demons for the sake of his true love? Further, it is disappointing that their relationship primarily works because the sex is sooooooo good. If good sex was the only thing you needed to maintain a solid relationship the divorce rate in America wouldn't be so alarmingly high!

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!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Mary B. Morrison did a great job at pinpointing the blinders in relationships. Ignoring all warning signs, Jada allowed Melanie "the manipulative slut" to come right in and seduce both her and her man right out of their life's happiness. There's many intimate scenes but the me'nage a trios is by far the most stimulating. Wellington the bald, chocolate, tasty delight is extremely charming and strong in his financials but a dense, weakling of a man when it comes to his mother and his social life. This pleasurable read had me wanting a cigarette at times and I don't even smoke! I'm busting at the seams to read the sequel "Never Again Once More".

Format: Paperback
Diamonds are forever at least for Wellington. Jada Diamond has what it takes in every aspect, she is successful, beautiful, and can turn the head of any man, but when she falls in love with her soulmate and allows his mothers manipulation to interfere in her relationship, she finds that she is a playing a game for what she thought would be a couple of weeks, but turns out to be the destruction of her relationship. Melanie has what it takes to but she is part of the phony in crowd, instead of listening to her real mother, she gets too deep with her god mommy and all that phony baloney is going to blow up in her face, she has a plan and follows it, but she will pay for it and almost loses her life in doing so. Cynthia is so caught up in the what others think of me and looking down her nose at people, that she has forgotten that dirty laundry that has not been washed will end up piling up and just because you can buy new clothes, throwing them on top of dirty ones, will not make the dirty clothes clean. She doesn't realize that she is playing a dangerous game with her son and she could lose him and her social status, but she is so used to manipulating that she doesn't consider the down fall. All those dirty little secrets that were done in the dark will come clearly into focus for all to see in the day light. This is an excellent story and a quick read, once you pick it up you will not put it down. Oh and the Shower scene, all I will say is if you thought Angela Bassette and Taye Diggs shower scene in How Stella Got her Groove back was steamy, then you ain't seen nothing yet, cause Diamond and Wellington will have you redecorating your home, well at least your bathroom. I will not tell anymore, except if this book is not part of your library, then your library is definitely not completed. I can't wait for this authors next book.
