Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Childhood friends desperate for love square off over untrustworthy men in Poole's frantic if not totally satisfying latest (after A Rich Man's Baby). Nikki Edwards has had enough of lying men, especially after learning that her biological father, Raymond Hawks, has died without acknowledging her existence. She decides she's finished with “Married Man Malcolm” Walker who's strung her along for three years. Approaching 30, Nikki and her friends Reshaun and Tia face a crossroads. Reshaun decides to marry a Liberian after a whirlwind courtship, while Tia, a police officer, becomes pregnant with a thug's baby. An accident with a drunken Nikki at the wheel of her mom Lolo's car with Tia as a passenger disrupts their friendship when Tia sues Lolo's insurance company. Meeting single hottie Dre Hill seems like a dream come true for Nikki and wedding bells start to ring, but troubles suddenly escalate as sticky revelations about Dre's past cause major conflicts. Poole's rueful page-turner is diverting, and Nikki's emotional narration keeps it real, suggesting trust is always a work-in-progress. (Oct.)

This is definitely one of the best books i have read this year. The story had a great pace to it: there were so many times i laughed out loud while reading. I finished it in 2 days!

This was a good read. Nicole got on my nerves A LOT. She seemed to be so naive and it got annoying hearing her go thru all the drama she created for herself. I wasn't surprised with the things revealed about Desmond.

It stayed interesting throughout the story. Quite a few twists and turns and surprises . I listened to the audiobook version which was well done.

Nicole Edwards has had her fair share of ups and downs in life. She has a decent job but may be on the verge of losing it. She bought her first home but was scammed by contractors. She got a man but he has a wife. Adding further to her downs, she and her best friend, Tia, have fallen out and want nothing to do with the other. When things don't look like they can get any worse, Nicole meets Dre. He's everything she's wanted in a man. Finally on an upward spiral with all things going right for her, Tia reenters the picture with some upsetting info about Dre. Who should Nicole believe - her friend of the past or her man of the future? With a provocative title and cover, "Somebody Else's Man" does little to develop any interest on its own. The story was very slow to begin with. It picked up some momentum but often dragged at times. While the book itself had a solid plot/premise, its execution lacked what makes novels memorable. The characters were just okay. The drama was just okay. The climax was just okay. Not good, not bad, "Somebody Else's Man" was just okay. Question. Did the person who wrote the synopsis actually READ the book? Character's name was Tia not Kia. Would have just written it off as an error except for another discrepancy. "Kia takes her new boyfriend's advice." A six-year relationship constitutes a new boyfriend? Reviewed by: Toni
