    Very Good!!!

    This book, A Chocolate Affair by Sheila Copeland is very good. It is the sequel to Chocolate Star, which I read last year. It deals with four main characters. All of these characters are young black women. They all have fame in some way or another. Throughout this book they go through their ups and downs with each other, the media, and their families. They all learn lessons about life from their daily experiences. This book is four stories in one! Personally I think this book is good. I liked that it was four stories in one. It makes it not just one long, drawn out, boring story. The thing I didn¿t like about the book is that some of the things that happen don¿t seem too realistic. I like stories that you can relate to and this is not one of those. It is fun to read and imagine but it is not realistic. I¿m not a famous singer or painter and I don¿t know anyone married to famous basketball players. This is one of those stories where you just have to imagine the events and the settings unless you really live a lavish life like that. I would recommend this book because it is good and fun to read the events that take place in this book. It is not really a page-turner but a book to read for fun!

    BORING!!

    This book was dry. The characters in this book were overly dramatic, they cried over any and everything. Gimme a break!!! They were just SORRY! It took me over a month to finish this book, I was hoping it would get eventually get exciting, it never did. I had to force myself to finish this book.

    Great Book

    I thought that this was a great book. I read it without knowing that it was the second book in a series. I thought that the book was great. I also went back and read the first book in the series, Chocolate Star and thought that it was great as well. This is a great story and you will defininitely find yourself caught up in the story and the character's. Go out and buy one today!!

    Absolutely Fabulous!

    This book was definitely a page-turner! I felt as though I knew the characters personally and I loved the fact that the author included faith and prayer. I look forward to reading all of her other works!

    yawn....

    I am a biracial woman, of African-American and Caucasian decent, in my early thirties. I hold a Master's degree and consider myself of above-average intelligence and of good humor. I've been married for six years and I have no children - yet. I read this book without having read Chocolate Star first. In addition, I must admit, after reading Chocolate Affair, I have no desire to read its prequel. This was one of the dumbest books I have ever read. It had no flow, no segue, no plot. The author should try expanding her vocabulary a bit. If I have to read of one more character giggling, 'You're so crazy,' I am going to puke. Although I appreciate my sistas' beauty in varying degrees, is it really necessary for Ms. Copeland to scrawl on every page, 'you are so pretty' or 'you are so beautiful'? Okay....we get it...the characters are attractive. Find something else to write about. As the chapters jump mindlessly from one to another, I find myself aching for a real plot. To me, this book read like a grocery list or 'things-to-do list', with the author listing scenery or feelings or actions. Good writing needs to flow, have depth, and encompass interest. I appreciate Ms. Copeland's attempt to incorporate religion and faith into the story, but that incorporation was lost in the drab emptiness that was supposed to be the plot. Moreover, why do all of the characters cry ALL of the time?? They double over in tears from laughing too hard. They burst into a crying fit at the very mention of someone having a bad day. 'You're so crazy', said Eric, nearly falling off the couch in tears from laughing so hard...'. Gimme a break! The 'jokes' were not that funny and the pivotal moments were not that intense - nobody cries at the drop of a hat anymore. I kept waiting for a clever plot twist or some real emotion or action.... Nada. I don't CARE what happens with these characters in the future. If I were a 7th grader of average reading ability, and nothing better to do, I might recommend this book to my friends. The drama, the simplicity... However, as an educated, cosmopolitan Black woman in my 30's (I think the characters were in their 20's and 30's as well) I found this book to be boring, repetitive, and uninteresting. Sorry, guys: find something else to do with your time.

    Fantastic

    I didn't realize this was a part 2 until reading the book but this book is amazing and it emphasizes the impact of faith on life. I love her use of the characters and I'm looking forward to reading more of her work.

    I Enjoyed This Book

    After getting into this book I realized it was a part 2. I would have preferred to have read part 1 first, but it wasn't necessary. I still enjoyed it and was able to understand how part 1 related to it. I immensely enjoyed the religious aspect. That is something that is missed in other books. Praying was a part of life for some of these characters. Most of the time when prayer is in the life of a character they are made out to be over zealous, self righteous people - giving prayer and religion a bad rep. I also enjoyed the story line. I can hardly wait for part 3. There just has to be one because this story line ended with a 'part 3' type revelation. Excellent!

    An array of African American women

    I didn't realize that this was a part 2. This was the first book I've read by this author, and I liked the ladies, 4 friends with secrets, ambition, turmoil, and you know we all suffer in love at some point. God's presence in this book is outstanding, I also love the feisty side. Entertaining and amusing looking forward to reading part 1 and part 3.

    Outstanding! Just Spectacular!!!

    I began rreading this work and could NOT put it down; I was actually annoyed that I had to work because I wanted to finish reading it. Her characters are real, in spite of their celebrity status and the compassion Ms. Copeland writes with is intoxicating. As an author myself, I was feverishly soaking in every literary trick she used to construct this superior work. It's clear that Sheila Copeland has been overlooked as an outstanding author and I will share her work with EVERYONE I come in contact with. Thank you Sheila...for the writing lesson! (smile)

    It was something I really Enjoyed

    I finished this book in about two days and based on my hectic schedule that was a great accomplishment. But anyway back to the story. Yeah, there were alot of characters but I never got confused because each one was described to a 't'. The reason for the title was because Kiesha's father was a doctor trying to find a cure for sickle cell. Keisha with all her hot-shot superstar friends decided to put on an all day event to raise money and educate people about the popular disease. She called this event a Chocolate Affair. Chocolate because its a disease that affects blacks and affair because it was an event. I loved this book! i think I enjoyed it soo much because I fantasize my life away. My cousin, who read only half of the book before i took it from her, said that i was most like Topaz's little cousin/secretary. To some extent I agree but once I got further into it, i realized that I could relate to all of them . . . even the men. Topaz is scandalous!! I guess I am the little cousin (sorry i can't think of her name) because i would've done the same thing as far as that lovechild situation goes. The ending was great! I would recommend this book to anyone who fantasizes and has big dreams just as i or someone who'd just like to enjoy a good book.

    Really Quick Read

    I really, really enjoyed reading this book. I read this book in one day. It left me wanting more. I wish there was a sequel!!! (hint, hint) I've never read anything by Ms. Copeland before. I've told all my friends to read this book.

    Get REAL!!

    This book was not that good. I honestly thought there were too many characters involved. I was near page 100 before I really figured out who all the players were. Why so many people whose names start with K, was she trying to intentionally confuse us? Very thin plot. I somehow can't relate to women who drink Christal, have Range Rovers and maids and nannies, and then again my man isn't a NBA player. I wish some of these authors would stop writing about fantasy and write about REAL women who struggle and take the train to work everyday and have to pay all the bills instead of these FAKE literary divas they think they aspire to be.
