"There were issues with the transitions, and a few characters disappeared like Judy from Family Matters, but overall a good story and easy read." -Rasheeda J. (OAKh)

"I enjoyed the book, it was an easy read.... but there were some things left unresolved at its end. Whatever happened to Blanche? Why did Warren lie about sleeping with her? (Yes withholding information is a lie) Especially, because you know Blanche is gonna tell.... (Smh) It all didn't flow entirely for me, but... I was entertained." - Tabatha E.(BK)
