If you like useless drama and name dropping this is your book. Not a bad book. The author is a good story teller.

Simone is the main character. She's troubled and against love. She has been to the depths of hell and she's now dealing with those things that triggered her pain. Deon is the love interest for part of the book. Anything that can happen happens in this book to Simone, which is truly useless drama to me. Deon dumps Simone and she starts dating a married man, Carlton. She falls for him. In the mean time one of her best friends believes Carlton isn't who he claims to be. He's right. Simone is devastated that the 'married man' isn't who he claims to be. Duh! He's married and sleeping with you and you want him to be honest with you? Makes no sense. Anyway, tragedy strikes Simone's life once again and she tries to end her life because of the drama.
As I stated this book is filled with drama. It has if that's you're thing, people dying, a couple of accidents, down low brothers, a 'LOT' of name dropping of brand names as if that's important, STD's, domestic violence, an alcoholic, a long lost mother, and lots of cheating. I'm no Moral Molly but this book just went in every direction possible with the drama.
Multiple stories being told from multiple characters.
And it abruptly ends. There's a part 2.
With that, the book isn't badly written it's just too much going on for my liking.
The author is a pretty damn good story teller to me.
Written pretty well.
Easy to understand.
Talise is normal.
Deon is a bright spot.
Way too much going on with the drama.
I didn't feel the least but sorry for Simone. I was happy when she found out the man she's been raw dogging with was on the down low.
