3.0 out of 5 stars Boring..., May 1, 2004
When I ordered this book I thought it was going to be full of drama based on the reviews, but it turned out to be too slow and long drawn out. I would not recommend this book for readers with a short attention span.
Didn't like it all.....I put it down after page 110.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor Kenya..., May 1, 2004
This review is from: The Bridge: A Novel (Hardcover)
The Bridge started off slow, but quickly picked up after couple of chapters. I won't give away too much of the story, but it focused on a nine year old girl that came up missing after her crack-selling aunt sent her to the store at ten o'clock at night. Solomon Jones kept me guessing to the very end. He gives you a cast of colorful characters to choose from: Aunt Judy that sells her crack out of her house, her boyfriend Sonny that has been rumored to molest young girls, Daneen, the missing girl's(Kenya) mother that ended up getting her daughter taking away from her, Lily, Kenya's best friend mom and Darnell, Kenya's uncle and Kevin Lynch that guy that was asked to help find Kenya.
Pick this one and enjoy it today! The ending will knock your socks off! Five stars NO DOUBT!

2.0 out of 5 stars Did I miss something?, March 24, 2004
This review is from: Six Days in January (Paperback)
This book started off slow. I tried to finish this book, but the author kept focusing on the same thing. This book had no story content and was VERY predictable. I am pretty much a good judge at pageturners, this one wasn't even close.
I read three chapters and headed back to the bookstore with it. I would not recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curtis, Curtis, Curtis, March 19, 2004
Too Much of a Good Thing was a sequel to Casting The First Stone and I must say that it was just as good! Curtis Black will surprise you over and over again with the way he runs his church! He had my mouth wide open! Money and women are his weakness!
This book was TOO GOOD! The ending was just a little far fetched, but overall I rate the book a FIVE! Buy it and read about a pastor that can't say no to sin!

5.0 out of 5 stars PLAYERS CLUB PART 2!, March 19, 2004
This review is from: Bad Girlz: A Novel (Paperback)
I didn't know what to expect when I cracked open this book! It was GOOD to the last drop! Diamond, Roxie, the tall girl with the blnde hair, Diamond's cousin...all of them are in there!
This book was very entertaining and just when I thought something was gonna happen, the opposite happen! This book reads just like Players Club except BETTER!
Now if you can get pass the slang and the ebonics you have a thought provoking story! The sex scenes were off the chain! PAGETURNER for sure!
LOVED IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars USE me or lose me!, December 21, 2003
This book was good and very interesting! It was full of steamy sex scenes, drama and an awkard relationship between a high maintenance woman name Farah and a wealthy, ladies man name Lenox. If you're looking for a fast paced story with lots of drama get this one! LOVED IT! I will be reading more from Maryann Reid. FIVE STARS NO DOUBT!

5.0 out of 5 stars PHENONMENAL!!!!!, December 21, 2003
I don't even know where to start with my review for this book. I had no idea what to expect when I ordered it off line. The first chapter was a little slow and confusing...JUST THE FIRST CHAPTER! But after the first chapter you will indeed need to buckle your seatbelts and get ready for a rollercoaster ride!
This was a well written story about three charcters who you will remember long after the story has ended.
You have Juanita who is so light she can pass for white, but you better not call her white! She often brags about being a black nubian queen to her peers even though they tease her about looking like a half breed with her fair complexion and green eyes. Juanita does not know who her mother is and has been raised by her grandmother her whole life, but when she finds out who her mother is she will no longer be the confident, proud person of her heritage.
Scooter is Juanita's best friend. Scooter is an intelligent, smart, gifted person, that is until he mets a street-talking, thug by the name of Jorge. Your mouth will literally drop when Scooter and Jorge met! DRAMA!
Last, but not least you have Conan who is a hard-working man that has nightmares over his brother's death and tries to stay loyal to his best friend, Jorge.
This story was so good I would not have had a problem paying full price for it! This is a book that is not be borrowed by your friends. Tell them to get their own copy! I HIGHLY recommend Chocolate Sangria to book lovers. You will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT, DRAMA-FILLED...LOVED IT!, December 9, 2003
This review is from: The Honey Well (Hardcover)
I read Gloria Mallette's last book, Shades of Jade and it was off the chain and The Honey Well was also. This one started off with drama and ended with EXTRA Drama! This book was so good and different from anything I have ever read. Towards the end grab a box of tissue because the tears will flow.
Reading this book, I kept asking myself how could a mother be so evil and selfish when it came to her OWN daughter. At the age of sixteen Arnell was asked by her MOTHER to sleep with the landlord because she could not afford to pay the rent. This book will have you turning the pages so fast....
Get it today! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

3.0 out of 5 stars It was okay...., December 9, 2003
This review is from: True Lies (Paperback)
I expected this book to be good reading all the reviews on it, but I was truly disappointed when I started reading it. For one, the writing was awful and choppy. Too choppy. The storyline was a good idea, but the writing took away from it being a good book. Overall I would rate this book 3.8. Not recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars PAGETURNER!, December 9, 2003
This review is from: Dating Games: A Novel (Hardcover)
This book was good from the first page to the last! Just when things got slow something happen! RM Johnson did an excellent job writing this one. This story is a little on the line of The Coldest Winter Ever. If you liked that one you'll love this one! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Deserves more than just 5 stars!
