    A Hard Knock Life

    Zola Zaire has had a hard life. After being raped at 14 by her mother's boyfriend, Zola's self-esteem causes her to do things with men for money. When she meets an older man, she feels she may be set for life. Then she gets pregnant and has no support from the baby's father. Zola moves on and moves up, after placing her child in foster care. However, her past comes back to haunt her as she searches for clues about the mysterious beating she received at the hands of her new, sophisticated man.

    Ian DeMarco has also had a challenging life. Money is not an issue. However, the deaths of a few close family members cause Ian to remove himself from the man he blames for their deaths -- his father. Zola and Ian's lives intersect on the corner of "Damsel in Distress" and "The Great Defender." Soon they find themselves as prey in a dangerous game of revenge.

    Hunter's novel, "Momma's a Virgin," is a combination of mystery and urban romance. The basic story is pretty enjoyable. However, I found myself distracted by detailed information about minor characters that did not have a real impact on the plot. The main characters were a bit superficial for my taste, but I was still able to gather sympathy for their plight. The reason for the title of the novel is revealed at the very end and personally I didn't buy it. It seemed like the author knew he had to explain the meaning behind the title and forgot to do so until the last page of the novel. Also, this was an ARC so there were a few editing issues.

    All in all, this is a decent read. I found myself more intrigued with the mystery plot than with the characters. That is what kept me reading because I wanted to know who was responsible for all the mayhem in Zola and Ian's lives.
