The story was sprinkled with so much drama that I felt lost in the storytelling because so much was going on. My 3 star review might not be the fault of the author, but too many characters and issues are a bit challenging for me. It seemed the author wanted to touch on more issues then should be handled in one book: deaths, repressed memories, incest, alcoholism, religion, homosexuality and more. Let's take a look at the characters.
Simone Johnson continues to have the same dream night after night of a little girl and a man. She knows the little girl is in trouble at the hands of this man, but she is unable to see the faces and details. When will her mind release this trauma? Best friend Stacey was the relief this reader needed while trudging through the story. His one liners and comedy at times made me laugh out loud. I was excited when he met Tyron, but I was also shocked that he went for the terms of the relationship. Could he ever be a kept man? His heart says no, but the mind is a tricky thing. If you tell yourself something enough times, it becomes your reality.
Talise was my favorite character since her strength as a friend spoke volumes as Simone's BFF. When her mom told her that they were getting a divorce, I was worried how she would pass on that information to Simone, who was emotionally unstable to a degree. But like only Talise could do, she took care of business.Read more ›
There were twists in this book that added another level of intensity to the story. I love to read a book that gives me more than I expected. From the beginning with the car accident, I was completely caught off guard. I asked myself `How could this happen now?' I was emotionally led down one street, but as the story unfolded I was actually taken down a totally different path. Once I recovered from the shock, I knew I would fully appreciate this book. After reading this title, I completely understand why it has maintained a high rating. This was my first read from this author and I am anticipating reading more of her work. Hopefully, there will be a part two that continues the story and we get to find out if Stacey is avenged.
