Winfield “Win” Payton is an interesting man. Just like him, his morning ritual is one I’ve never heard before. He shows how prejudice is part of his daily life. With everything playing out in the news lately it’s something that you would think you could relate to. Win’s life takes an interesting turn once he meets Barbie Monreal.
You certainly get a look at his business acumen in this story. The only problem I had was that I felt like it was an “us against them” and he was a token – which I’m sure in some instances it may actually work that way but we just don’t see it. Some readers may feel offended by that as well. Felt like the story jumped all over the place and it was hard to hold my attention. He has so much going on in his life but you only see bits and pieces of each. Win tells me he has a relationship with Barbie but I just don’t see it.
I had high hopes for this book on reading the back-cover copy. What I read didn’t live up to what was actually between the covers. On a good note, I do believe that this book might be a good candidate for a book club because there is so much to discuss. Some may find a few of the scenes offensive due to language and racial tensions. But for or a book club, this story would stimulate discussions of all kinds.
This was a book where I found it very hard to like the main character. He’s a man with few scruples – he thinks nothing about lying to get what he wants. Just like the rest of the story, the ending was different. I didn’t feel there was any type of conclusion. Would I read this author again? Probably not. But if presented with a book of his again I don’t know that I could trust the blurb to let me know about the story. The only way to know for sure would be to try and read it and see if that would change my mind about this author’s writing style.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
