Beata Douglass attained fame in the music industry as a video model. Not to be confused with other industry models that tended to behave like groupies Beata only sleept with men that can help further her singing career. Beata isn’t shy about using her banging body or gorgeous features to help further her career but her modeling gigs are just stepping stones to finance her demo CD and accomplish her real goal of becoming a R&B singer. Beata is determined to overcome her video vixen status and transform herself into an R&B diva. Beata’s hardcore demeanor derives from the heartache she suffered at the hands of her first love. After which all men just became ways to an end.

Rodney aka Kane struggled to achieve fame as a rapper hailing form the same neighborhood as Beata. The two crossed paths while Beata used and abused Kane’s friend Roc. Kane always viewed Beata as a manipulative gold digger and she’s proves him right with her vixen like antics. When Beata gets signed to Kane’s label he’s sure he knows exactly how she managed to snag her deal and sing her way onto the remix of his hit single. But although her methods may be shady Beata helps to elevate the song and thrust their careers further into the spotlight. Their newfound fame brings about an enemy that neither knew they shared in the form of Roc. Roc never got over Beata’s rejection and after hearing her and Kane’s new single he foolishly thinks that Kane may have been the reason for his heartache.

Author Marlon McCaulsky does a great job exploring Beata’s character and her willingness to stop at nothing while chasing her dream. Mr. McCaulsky allows readers to journey with Beata as she evolves from a naïve teenager to a manipulative vixen eventually becoming a R&B singer who’s pain and struggle helps her to not only make touching music but to identify with her fan base. In doing so Mr. McCaulsky successfully transforms Beata into way more than just a diva.

What did you like best about the book?
Although a lot of Beata’s earlier exploits were scandalous she showed a tremendous amount of growth by the end of the novel.

What did you dislike about the book?
The synopsis gave away a lot of the storyline giving potential readers too much insight as what was going to occur in the book.

How could the author improve this book?
The story needs to flow throughout the entire novel not just the beginning and ending. Correcting this problem would provide readers with a more intense read.
