Ooohhh I absolutely loved this novel. I think Mccaulsky did a fabulous depicting the lives of Kane and Beata. I can honestly say that outside of K'wan I really don't read any urban lit novels by male writers simply because I find that often they are not well written. But I have to admit that I was blown away by Mccaulsky's ability to keep my attention throughout the novel. Readers meet the drop dead gorgeous Beata Douglas when she's a 14 year old lovesick puppy and Mccaulsky takes us through her adolescent years into a relationship with a dangerous man (Roc), onto her success as a sexy, cutthroat video vixen which catapults her into her life as a successful singer-songwriter who captures the affection of Hip-Hop's hottest gangster rapper, Kane. I appreciate that Mccaulsky tells the story of a troubled young woman without resorting to the typical storyline we read in novels by Vicki Stringer, Wahida Clarke, Allison Hobbs, and even Erick S. Gray. There is something different about this book that is refreshing and shows where Hip-Hop/street/urban literature can go if these writers would simply write books and NOT set out to create these elaborate plots that piece together like screenplays. I look forward to reading more of Mccaulsky's work in the future. "From Vixen 2 Diva" does not disappoint

Beata Douglas a beautiful Harlem born diva wishing for riches and fame and willing to do whatever to get it. She used video modeling and sex to achieve Vixen Stardom. She hooks up with Kane who is one of the hottest rappers out in order to boost her career. The problem was...they were attracted to each other. But let me tell you a secret, Kane was the ex homeboy of Beata's ex man Roc. Who is being released from prison after a 3yr stent. WOW!! Are you excited? Well go ahead and get you a copy!! I'm telling you that you will NOT be able to put this book down. It is very well written. It makes you feel like you are right there watching Beata's life unfold in front of you. What will she do next? OMG did he just...! I would tell you, but it's better when you read it on your own. Pink Palace grabbed my interest and From Vixen 2 Diva made it official. Marlon McCaulsky is one of my top favorite authors. I'm a huge Omar Tyree, Zane, and Sista souljah fan. Now, I'm a huge Marlon McCaulsky fan.

I'll say it again; From Vixen 2 Diva is a Hip-Hop Lit classic! I read this book in one day and loved every page of it. Marlon McCaulsky step up his pen game from his fist book The Pink Palace. Beata Douglas is a gorgeous young woman from Harlem with one goal in mind, to get rich and famous in the music business no matter what or who she has to do. On the surface Beata looks like your average gold digger but she has a secret; she actually has talent too. She's been a gifted singer since she was a little girl and is now a video model working her demo in the industry. Having been hurt by too many men early in her life Beata decides to become a cold-hearted vixen using men to come up in the game. A up and coming rapper Rodney Reid aka Kane who came up in Harlem with Beata and was friends with her crazy ex Roc. When the two meet each other Beata dismisses him as a nobody. But when Kane blows up in Hip-Hop, Beata tries to use him and he humiliates her. Beata down but not out finds away to get on Kane's record label and drama begins as the two try and one up the other. Roc gets out of prison and he causes havoc for both Beata & Kane. Roc is a sadistic killer willing to do anything to get Beata back and he does. The ending of the book was just as entertaining as the beginning. This book was fast pace and gave me the feeling of seeing the music industry through the stars eyes. I loved Marlon's first person point of view story telling. His style of writing is very refreshing and witty. I would love to see a sequel to this story if Marlon choose to do so. This is his best work to date.
