    Ripped from a soap opera

    I love african-american fiction and this book reminded me why! It was witty and easy to read. Told from the perspectives of the main characters in the book. I read this book in two days. If you enjoy drama - those 'uhn-uhn, no she didn't... moments - this book is for you!

    Great Read!

    This was a really good story. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. I like how the storyline keeps it real and shows the up and downs of being in a relationship with a hustler.

    Great book

    This is a good book that keeps you turning the page to see what happens next. I t will make you look around a question the friends and relationships in your life, at least it did for me. I recommend for anyone who would rather read about drama then actually live it!

    This was my favorite.

    It was page by page excellent. Each page just got better. The only downside was the ending. I wanted more. It leaves you hanging with your mouth on the floor. I need a part two!! Must read...

    more from this reviewer

    Dirty Little Secrets,

    Sisters from another mother, Shayla, Rhonda and Gladys, have been friends for years. Each has a secret that they've been keeping from the others. None of them are really content. One has put her husband's wants before her own, one is in love with someone she shouldn't be, one is being physically abused, and so on. They've always been able to rely on the support and guidance of each other to get them through life's dilemmas, but are their secrets even too much for their friendship?

    For the most part I enjoyed "Secrets of a Kept Woman." There was just enough drama, both practical and relatable, to capture and maintain readers. However, the author's voice as a male and the introduction of a street element were not strong. It seemed forced and/or stretched thin. The ending was also too rushed and neat for my liking.

    In the end, "Secrets of a Kept Woman" flirts with a number of themes. Jealousy, mistrust, deceit all make for an interesting read.
