Would you try another book from Sasha Campbell and/or Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe ?
I would only try another book if I was out of anything else good to read and it was cheap
What do you think your next listen will be?
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Kidwell and Simi Howe ?
Someone other than a Yale /Harvard theater major, trying to sound urban
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment. Everything about this book was a cliché. I was have why though the book and I already knew the ended, better yet I knew exactly what was going to happen next before the next chapter. Do not get me wrong it was an OK read if you're in to Love and Hip Hop Atlanta or the Housewives of Atlanta, but I have read much better Urban novels. Just hated the fact that everything about the characters were a stereotype like the man in the club with the gold tooth button down shirt and "nappy" hairy chest hair. Immediately this brought to mind a character from the Martin Lawrence show from back in the days or the brother name Cool aid (really!?). There were losts of rolling my eyes moment while listening to this book. And please do not get me started on the performances or should I say the narrator. They were so “proper” that when they tried to sound urban or “street” it just came across awkward. Over all I just was not feeling it.

I enjoy this author's writing
there were some twists and turns a few that were very unexpected and I enjoyed them all. the author does a great job with character development. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book in the series I also like the readers for both characters.
