    Great book!

    Fantastic read. It made me feel lots of different emotions, ups & downs and I found myself strongly disliking Micheal at times, but that's what makes it so good. Great story.

    Review: "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing" by Ch


    "Ain't Nothing Like the Real Thing" by Chicki Brown was a very good romantic well written read. It being of a interracial couple that focused on problems that can come up between two individuals who loved each other, however was the trust really there. The story is a very real one that deals with the pain of infidelity and only through Gods' help with the power of forgiveness becomes very important in these two peoples life. This author also showed much understanding and compassion in her storytelling of "ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing."

    The characters especially Michael and Dee... I will say were all simply off the chart...good making all of them...Rita, Krista, Sue and others...they seem to simply come alive. This novel was a wonderful novel to read and you will not want to pick it down until the end. There is definitely a lesson that will be learned in being successful in keeping this family together and this is where I will say you must pick up the excellent read to find out just how Ms. Brown gets this story out to its readers that will show how true love will be there for you and will always win when you let God into it.

    If you are in for a good christian romance then you have come to the right place for "Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing" I would recommend to you.
