She Slipped and Fell was a story about best friends Tina and Kendall who "slipped" one night; crossing the line between friends and lovers. Their one night together opened doors that neither one of them were ready for. Tina fell hard for her dearest friend Kendall, and was willing to go public about their relationship. Kendall on the other hand, was still well tucked away in her closet and was not ready to come out. That act of selfishness on Kendall's part ultimately destroyed not only their relationship, but their friendship as well. After years of separation, the two were reunited, and proved that true love could withstand the test of time.

I wish that I had nothing but rave reviews to offer regarding She Slipped and Fell. Unfortunately, I found it to be a hard read because of the tense inconsistencies, along with other grammatical errors. The repetition in the beginning was annoying. Both Tina and Kendall told the same story one after the other, which forced me, the reader, to have to re-read the same scene twice.

She Slipped and Fell, in my opinion, has not had any professional editing. I found myself focusing more on the errors within the manuscript than the actual story itself. Shonda, the author, had a great story idea but fell short in her delivery. Everything just seemed to run together. There was no structure and that caused the story plot to be poorly executed. Needless to say, I was very disappointed as I read this novel. She Slipped and Fell truly read like the work of an amateur writer.

*I am not a professional reviewer. The above is my personal opinion.*

This novel was 263 pages of a well-used tree!!

This is the first novel that I have read by Shonda, and I was impressed.

She had me hooked from the very first words, which for me (an avid book reader) is hard to do!!!

She did an excellent job penning a story about 2 beautiful spirited individuals and their struggle to exist in a world that denounces them because of their sexual preference. I will say that the story is about 2 lesbians...only because we exist in a world that still justifies treating PEOPLE like 2nd citizens and makes judgments that they are not in position to make. I say the story is about 2 lesbians...only because Shonda touches on an important issue that plagues our society, and in her novel, she sets a stage of confidences amidst the chaos for people labeled because of their sexual preference. Only for those reasons will I mention that the story was about 2 lesbians. Otherwise, I wouldn't care to mention it at all.

[No Spoiler Alert!! This review will not ruin it for those who haven't read it yet!!!]

THE STORY IS ABOUT 2 PEOPLE WHO "SLIPPED AND FELL" IN LOVE, AND THE OBSTACLES THEY HAD TO ENDURE TO OVERCOME HURDLES IN THEIR WAY OF EMBRACING THAT LOVE!!!

RECOMMENDATION: Get the book!!!

I was able to connect to the characters and the raw emotions they felt on this journey through life. I could see the characters' faces in my mind and the places they were in, in the book. I was not inundated with pointless, trashy sex-scenes reflective of promiscuous and self-destructive behavior. The "love-making" scenes were vital and imperative to the penning of a great novel...causing heat to rise in my delta.

It was realistic and encouraging...relevant and catching...necessary and appreciated.

I was so excited to order this book and couldn't wait until it was delivered thanks to all the 5 star reviews. What a waste of anticipation. Thought the writing was simplistic, the characters one-dimensional, the pacing stilted, the sex cringe-inducing...I tried to like it but just couldn't. Hours of my life and $10 of pay never to return.

So many 5 star reviews for this book. I thought I'd like it. I wanted to. I didn't. Readers need to stop applauding authors for the same generic lesbian romance. It seems the praise is even greater when the two characters are Black. I know books about Black lesbian are few and far between, but this not the quality of work I want telling a story about my community.
It's worse than being the same thing I've read two dozen times. The characters are flat as hell until maybe the last ten pages. Somehow after 200+ pages, I know nothing about them besides they slipped and fell. Knowing little means caring little.
Then with the way the story is told, I can't tell one of them from the other. By the time I realized that I was merely skimming pages, so it didn't matter. The author could have done something to differentiate their voices. Instead they just take turna whining about the same thing. The exact same thing.
Where I really started to lose interest though was the dialogue. If I can give no other advice to the author, it would be fix the dialogue. It is annoyingly unrealistic and probably the main reasons the characters are so boring and flat. How realistic is it for a twenty something in an argument with her girlfriend to start rambling about the confinements of societal gender roles? And it keeps on and keeps on and keeps on throughout the book with both characters sounding like they're at an equality march instead talking to someone they've known their whole life.
I know a lot of others were impressed but I was not.
