The book was hot! From page one the author captures the reader's attention by giving them a page full of what was to come in the future chapters of the book. This was my first book reading from the author and it won't be the last. Keep up the good work Ms. Ellis and continue to give your reader some-thing worth reading.

Karma is a mutha....And in this novel by Ms. Ellis what comes around sure does go around!! This book was sooo good, I could not put it down. I was kind of skeptical about buying this book, because I'd never heard of this author, but I am glad I did!! This is the story of Dominic Jones, a successful businessman who is married, but has to have a "girlfriend". He meets Tera and thinks he's met the perfect lady, but Tera turns out to be a fatal attraction, and ends up dead, with Dominic being the suspect. You will be surprised at who really killed this "professional girlfriend" turned nut-case. Trust, you will enjoy this story! Good job, Nishawnda!!

Wives and Girlfriends was a fascinating read! I read the entire book in one day because it was hard to put it down. Normally, I read romance novels but I decided to give this self-published author a try after visiting her website and reading an excerpt from the story. Each of the characters were well developed and the plot was terrific all the way until the very last page. The ending will leave you stunned. If you're looking for a good read and a quick read, don't sleep on this one. This is a very talented author that I look forward to reading more from.

In Boston the Jones family is one of the wealthiest Black families in the city this also keeps them in the limelight with all of the right people.

Dominic Jones is the owner of Jones Consultants. He loves all of the power and respect that his money has afforded him. His most prized attribute is being able to juggle time for his added bonuses and still continue being an adored husband and father. Will Dominic's cheating and self-aggrandizing ways be right for Tera Larou, a professional girlfriend.

Donna Wynn-Jones for 15 years has been her husbands' right hand, his personal assistant as well as a cheerleader for any and everything pro Dominic. Never questioning him about his time or added bonuses, Donna was fulfilled just by being the wife. Lacking any personal time, Donna has started to spend more time getting in tune with self. Just as the regimen appears to be working Tera Larou, her husband girlfriend begins to meddle.

It's only a matter of time before Tera Larou gets what she has coming to her. WIVES AND GIRLFRIENDS quickly becomes a case of who done it and instigates what people are willing to do to keep dirty little secrets. Nishawnda Ellis has told a sharp, gripping tale that will leave you breathless as you anticipate the ending.

Format: Paperback
The local news reported the body of a young woman was found brutally murdered in her condominium. Upon searching the victim's home, the investigators also found a "little black book" which contained the names of 250 males. Get ready for the roller coaster ride that Nishawnda Ellis places you on in her second book, WIVES AND GIRLFRIENDS.

Tera Larou's profession is dating wealthy married men. Her philosophy is she can spend time with the man and get what she wants without the burden of marriage. She keeps a constant reserve of candidates available to fulfill her needs as she carefully guards her heart so as not to fall in love. That is until she meets Dominic Jones.

Dominic Jones, a self-made millionaire, has a wife and daughter. Although his future looks bright, he still has to have the company of another woman to keep his juices flowing. He begins a torrid love affair with Tera. Did he do away with her after her constant demands to leave his wife Donna? Jacob Evan is Dominic's rival and one of Tera's many men. Did he kill Tera in a fit of jealous rage? What about Donna? Could she pull off such a heinous crime?

This tale of who-done-it leaves the reader guessing until the explosive end. I really enjoyed the fast pace of the novel and the way the author totally blind-sides the reader with the real culprit. The author added layers to Tera's character when she moved her from being a gold-digging diva to a woman desperately seeking the love of a man. She also tapped into the emotions of all the characters. The story totally engages the reader with its twisting plot. For a quick contemporary novel with an element of mystery, I recommend picking this one up.

Format: Paperback
Nishawnda Ellis' Wives and Girlfriends was a definite literary pleaser. The main protagonist, Tera Larou, thought her --it didn't stink. She was a beautiful woman who capitalized on her good looks, and her prowess in the bedroom to keep her bills paid; a luxurious roof over her head; dressed down in the latest and greatest gear, and enough money to live comfortably for the rest of her life.

Dominic Jones, a handsome, rich brother with a hunger for the ladies, gets 'caught up' so-to-speak with Tera, and ends up getting more than he bargained for. He soon learns a lesson that 'having your cake and eating it too' is an overrated statement.

The craftiness of Nishawnda Ellis as an author is to be commended. You are constantly kept on the edge of your seat, and eagerly anticipating what is going to come next. The story's ending totally took me by surprise, and left me with a feeling of 'damn, this girl can write!'

I highly recommend Wives and Girlfriends to anyone who enjoys being 'the other woman'. You might change your mind after reading it. LOL!
