You Knew Betta

Raimone is a big time street baller who marries his high school sweetheart Sasha promising her the glamorous life. He appears to love her deeply, but has a sexual craving for his mistress, NaTisha. NaTisha has children by Raimone as well and has every intention of moving Sasha out of the way so she and her kids can have him fulltime. The story basically is compromised of each woman expressing her likes and dislikes at Raimone’s treatment. He also narrates his being tore by his trophy wife and sexual vixen mistress. Throughout the book NaTisha tries several sneaky tricks to unsurp the marriage, and Sasha is tormented with living with Raimone and his lies. Eventually things backfire on them when Natisha is murdered much later in the book.
The two female leads had very similar lifestyles except one was more wealthier and the other more ghetto. So I feel their characters could have been more developed. A lot of emphasis was put on their name brand clothes, which could have been better put to use on character development. Nevertheless, the book depicts how life is when one tries to have their cake and eat it too. The twist at the end could easily be guessed by those who can read between the lines, but I have to give the author props. The story will make readers think twice on dipping on the side to please that lustful demon.
