    Not the way CURRENT New Orleans is at all.

    Well the streets are kinda like the way he wrote about in the book. But to me it was like he was going off memory. Plus he portrayed African Americans in New Orleans so badly. Most of Mr.Tyree's book are wonderful to say the least. But this was a disappointment. I was suprised, the story line had me off, and well I did'nt like it at all. I was very long and so uninteresting. Ayanna was a straight up wannabe and wouldnt have lasted a DAY in the real street of New Orleans. Bridget should have just went back to where she came from. Yula needed a life, badly. But my favorite of them all was Leslie's sister. The way Tyree tryed [and failed] to portray her as was weak. And I knew from the start she wasnt. Overall: Good read, if your bored.

    Didn't Make the Cut

    I am such a huge fan of Mr Tyree's work. But Leslie...there are no words for the discouraging disappointment I faced having read this book. I expected so much more from this book. The charater is so distant that the reader doesn't even get a chance to know her. Understandable she is mysterious but if anything a reader is suppose to know about the main character before all else. It seemed as if her roomates had more of an appealling story line. Not a big hit, borrow the book b4 buying, if anything.

    Disappointing

    I have to agree. This book was very disappointing. Leslie is too distant, too focused on revenge for no real reason. Like most, she has been done wrong, but her rage isn't real. She is the main character and I still didn't learn enough about her. What happened to Omar this time?

    WEIRD

    TYREE IS GOOD WRITER BUT THIS BOOK WAS OUT THERE. THE CHARACTER WAS POOR AND THREW HER UNFORTUNATE LIFE ON ALL THAT DID NOT DESERVE TO BE. AT TIMES IT GOT REALLY BORING. I STARTED TO READ THIS BOOK FIVE TIMES BEFORE EVEN MUSTERING MYSELF TO READ IT COMPLETE. IT IS A INTERESTING FLOW IF YOU ARE INTO WITCHCRAFT.

    Slow read

    This novel is far too slow... I should have known better after reading "Flyy Girl" which was also slow, but I decided to give this author another chance. If you like action packed, fast moving, and page turning novels this is not the book for you. I'm very disappointed in the way the book ended.. I guess there will be a part 2. I assure you I will not read it, which is why I choose not to read "For the Love of Money" This writing style of this author can not hold my attention. I wouldn't recommend this book to any one. This novel can not compete with the other novels on the market. I wish I could get my money back...
