Can you say PAGE TURNER?!?!
The whole cast and crew is back! Almost two years have passed since Jaylin chose a life with Nokea and moved his family to Florida. Nokea is his everything and he's not going to let anything change that, or will he? For Scorpio, he's gone but definitely not forgotten. She hasn't been able to find a man that makes her feel even half of the way Jaylin did and she's still harboring a lot of pain. A manipulative woman scorned, will all men suffer because she was wronged in the past? Shane, an all around good guy, has remained a friend to everyone. He's partnered with Felicia in a successful business venture. Jaylin is still his boy and he's godfather to his children. Being a friend also means playing the role of referee. Felicia hates Scorpio. Scorpio can't stand Felicia. Despite being enemies, they have one thing in common - they both want some more Jay Baby. (Hell, what girl doesn't?) Shane's plate is full. Can he keep Scorpio and Felicia in separate corners and prevent Jaylin who visits St. Louis on business from falling to temptation? And what about Shane - doesn't her deserve love too? Put Jaylin, Shane, Felicia, and Scorpio together and there is bound to be plenty of drama and jaw dropping sex. Emotions run high. Feelings are hurt. Discoveries are made. Decisions are regretted. Consequences are paid. With a masterful touch, Hampton captures the voices of each of the characters in chapters told alternatively from each character's perspective exposing their private heartaches, thoughts and desires. Book number four in this connecting series and Brenda has not dipped once. In fact, she just gets better with time. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I feel like I've come to know exactly what to expect from her and then she always manages to surprise me and come even harder. She has the ability to maintain that balance between familiarity and freshness that will keep her bringing it for a long time to come. Brenda you know I'd give you more stars if I could. Everyone seems to be running around here with a title - Princess of this or Queen of that. Well I've come up with my own - Queen of Doing the DAYUM thing! And there is no one more deserving. Can't wait for Naughty By Nature 2. STL!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
