Melinda Graves pen game is amazingly sick! This novel will have you glued to the pages all the way to the end, making you itch for more like you’re a heroin addict! I couldn’t put this book down at all until I completed it! It’s filled with a rollercoaster of love, lies, great sex, betrayal, jealousy, envy and deception. When people you love whom you refer to as family, deceive you in numerous ways as if you’re a stranger from off the streets, there’s no limit to their actions. There’s guaranteed to be chaos! The pain, the tears shed, & the broken hearts in this story could be felt within you & relatable to many.
Lex, Trisha, Tone, Monique, Aaliyah and Carlos are all great friends but consider and treat each other like family. When life progresses everything goes from happiness to despair; lies are told, friends become enemies, family deceive one another, hearts are broken, jealousy and envy surface and death takes you home. The suspense & twist in this story will catch you off guard. When you think you know all you should, you find out it’s so much more adding to the tea.
Trisha was driving herself crazy from the infidelity her husband put her through. It's a shame that you feel more like your husband's mistress than his wife. She could have left him, with nothing to lose, but her heart wouldn't allow her. Weak-minded, she allowed her husband to disrespect her and make her feel & look like garbage. She is set out to make him & his mysterious “wifetress” pay when it’s all said & done. A happy & content face for now, but will she pull it off? Will the monster deep within be released?
I couldn’t stand Lex, Trisha’s husband. The way he treated his maid & wife were uncalled for. This multimillion baseball player was indeed a monster, a devil in disguise. He absolutely doesn’t deserve to be happy! I hated his character although it suited him so well. You just have to read this book to see what I’m speaking of. He’s one dirty dude. I can’t wait to see what happens to the rest of his life! Hopefully, Melinda will write him off!
I felt bad for Aaliyah. A battered woman who chose to take her own life to escape the hell that she lived. I would have found another way out though, never suicide. From the descriptive detail of how Carlos character is, trust & believe, you will want to jump in the print of this book & “write in” you beating his behind! He & Lex are the worst (just the same), but yet hate each other …now isn’t that something? Carlos had his own vendetta. Even so, he had no one to blame for his pitiful life but himself. He set it all in motion. You have to be careful what you ask for …it could harm you more than it can bring you good! You’re going to have to one-click this book to find out what happens with these two!
I loved Tone’s character. For him to be so smart, it took him a long time to put the pieces of the puzzle together though. He was blinded by love and the power of the P! I was sadden by his fate. He really didn’t deserve all that was thrown at him. Good men are hard to find & his wife just threw him away. Shame on her!
Monique had the perfect life, but if you’re not happy I guess it really isn’t so perfect. She is the owner of the most successful African American sports agency in the country, has a great son & an amazing husband! So why isn’t she happy? Why would you bring so much misery to the ones you love? Sleeping with her husband’s best friend she is known as one man’s wife …another man’s mistress!
Maybe they will all meet this sista named KARMA …she tends to visit from time to time and is a force to reckoned with. I Can’t wait to find out all the juicy secrets in part 2. Make sure you all go and one-click this great read! You won’t be disappointed. Excellent job Melinda!
