NFL trophy wife, Naima marries her high school sweetheart, Kaden against her families wishes due to a teen pregnancy. As time goes on Naima learns those around here covet the life she has. She is shattered when she learns her best friend Haven been holding a secret for years that blows her world apart. Little do she know Haven secretly wants the life she has, along with a list of characters who come on the scene, especially the mysterious and conniving Emeri.

When the couple separate after past truths are revealed, Kaden is on a mission to get his family back, meanwhile the sexy Damir has captured Naima undivided attention. He is a pleasant distraction to her marital problems despite the fact he is harboring secrets as troubling as Kaden. Naima soon learns that those she trust are not what they seem and she has to make life changes in order to keep her sanity. The story is filled with high drama, sex, lies and all the page turning ingredients to make a steamy novel. I read it in a day. This was the author’s debut novel and it captures the readers attention. The only issue was at the end when a few sentences ran together. At first one would believe it was the character’s dialogue but it was too excessive and I blame this on the editor. The story format was great and I enthralling.

What did you like about the book?
The drama was flowing and kept me turning the pages to see what was up with the characters and how things would end.

What did you dislike about the book?
The editor didn’t catch the run on sentences at the end which became distracting to a well put together story.

What could the author do to improve the book?
The story was great, but double check behind this editor.

I really don't care how great the jegdus think you are. When the votes are talled, and you come in last; well SO LONG. Don't the jegdus think that maybe the TV viewers just don't like the way they sing, and that is why they did not get the votes. There should be no SAVES Period. I am older then most listeners, and I like a clear voice with no warbles (you know what I mean) like Thia Megia and Scotty McCreery. All the rest of them think screaming is the only way to sing. The louder they scream, the better the jegdus think they are. http://syincxsu.com [url=http://pglezhrjul.com]pglezhrjul[/url] [link=http://waobqhen.com]waobqhen[/link]

It was heartwarming to see the raiotecn Casey had to being saved I have always been an admirer of his, just because he's different. He doesn't try to be anyone but himself. THAT is what music needs today people who are unique. I felt Karen was always trying to be JLo, and we already have one of those .And its unfortunate that the first comment in this thread is held by Dolly, who needs to be reminded that in her way of thinking, the only ones who should try out for Idol would be North American Natives, since they were here first though I'm sure that thought never occured to her (duh!). Everyone else, have a great day! http://sqmdsz.com [url=http://nfzqzoc.com]nfzqzoc[/url] [link=http://mlchvlimdd.com]mlchvlimdd[/link]

. Another her words were misleading. I think she might have been reinerfrg to the way Karen Rodriguez commented sever times on the show that she wanted to be the first Latino to win on American Idol. Which tells me that Karen does not think of herself as an American but only a Latino. May be that is what Dolly Ann ment to express. Yes it does not matter what race you are for we are all Americans. A melting pot of many different races. As you all know that is what makes up America. So may be Dolly Ann did not express herself properly. Wha ya think.

PRAISE CLEOThis is brilliantly wtterin and incredibly apt, and not just for the YA community, either--I'm part of the slam poetry community (I know, I know, don't say fucking def jam to me or I'll e-smack you) and this carries over there as well in interesting ways.)I think we had a quick Twitter-chat about this as well, Cleo, and I agreed with you then and I agree with you now. It's very, very hard for artists to NOT take reviews of their art seriously, because art is so personal, and writing especially so, but the answer is never, ever to go crazy and lash out and retaliate.More importantly--and I say this as a person who spent a LOT of time in shitty college writing workshops--you can ignore critique. You can take it into consideration, or you can ignore it. There was this girl who I ended up having two workshops with and she and I were completely different in our writing, and neither of us really liked the other, and eventually I realized that we were just interested in different things and never going to really help each other creatively, and that was okay. "I don't like it" doesn't mean "it's bad" or "it's not art," it just means "I didn't like it."
