This is urban erotica, and I believe it’s a sequel. So I felt lost much of the time, and my review may be due, primarily, because this type of erotica is not my preference. Many names were dropped and parts told as those they were just summaries of earlier-told stories, stories told more in depth elsewhere. Sex scenes are hot, the inclusion of people of various racial mixtures and ethnicities is a breath of fresh air in the too-often monoracial worlds of fiction, and the book starts off well, with some insight into the struggle between what the body wants and what the mind knows is good for her. But that’s as much as I can say that’s good. The narrator does a poor job with almost all of the international accents. She even fails at the valley girl voice choice for Bella, an adult, spoiled daughter of rich parents. The narrator also fails with when pronouncing French words and when speaking with Dutch, British, and Spanish accents. Also, the supposed friendship between Bella, the white, rich, dependent valley girl and Precious, the independent, middle class black female is not believable at all. I got to about an hour-and-a-half in the story and could go no further. It just didn’t work for me. I couldn’t finish it, and I always finish books. I think this is maybe the third book of more than 1000 books I’ve listened to that I couldn’t finish. Life’s just too short even when it cost $$.
