    This is a good book

    I have never read a book that tugged at my heart strings. I was sitting here reading this book and after months of saying that I would get around to it, it happened. Wow. I loved it.

    I Was Reduced To Tears With This Book

    Never in my life have I read a book that reduced me to tears until now. This book had me feeling so many things that I could not explain. Reading this book was like pulling a page out of the lives of so many people I know. I guess that is why I was moved by this book. If I had one issue with the book, it's that it ended. This book is wonderful. It is a must read for all women and some men. Especially those who have grappled with infidelity in their lives.

    Thank You Thank You Thank You

    Finally, somebody that isn't afraid to talk about the things we all would like to say. But very few dare. Rasheed Clark actually wrote about book about African Americans that didn't have them stripping or selling drugs. He is definitely a star on the rise. He is a true example that out of pain, trials and tribulations that you can achieve much. Thank you, Rasheed.

    This Book Is Like Reading About Your Own Life

    My book club ordered this book and though we gave ourselves three weeks to read it, many people were done the first week. By the time we had our meeting, things got crazy because everybody agreed on how real the characters felt to all of us. It's like picking up a book and reading something out of your life. What is most impressive is that each character is grounded in a real story. There are no drug deals gone wrong, there is no character saved by the church, and everything isn't neatly wrapped up in the end and everyone lives happily ever after. So you walk away from this book, actually wishing you didn't like these characters are real people out there living their lives. We were impressed. Rasheed Clark needs another book and fast. The ladies of my book club will be there to support him.

    It Was So Good I Couldn't Put It Down

    You ever read a book that made you mad but you wanted to keep reading to find out what happens? You ever read a book that made you laugh aloud and then people look at you like you were crazy? You ever read a book that made you cry because you felt like you were going through it and not a chracter in the book? You ever read a book that made you feel like talking about the characters in the book like they were real people? No? Then you need to read this book. For a first book, this was an excellent start. I just couldn't stop reading it. I could not put it down. I read everything but this has become my favorite book.

    A Fresh Voice In African American Fiction

    I thought I read it all, heard it all and seen it all then I found this book. I can't explain how many mixed emotions I felt reading a book. At a time when it seems good African American writers come few and far in between, this book proves we still have some unheard voices left to speak and why we should listen. Rasheed Clark has raised the bar on African American fiction by adding his own his personal spin to a tale of infedility, love, relationships, family, friendships and made you actually believe that things can get better. This a book every woman should own and when you read it you'll understand why.

    I Laughed, I Cried, I Loved It

    I was drawn in by the title's promise of a juicy story of secrets, lies and scandal but was pleasantly surprised by a heart warming story of real people and things that people actually go through. Did the book meet my expectations? No, because it exceeded them. I was touched by Nikki's story, loved Sista's strength, I fell in love with Brian and learned something from Day. This book feels so real that I found myself laughing out loud, crying like a newborn child and in the end, wishing it wasn't over. Buy this book for you and a friend because you will to talk about this book. Eric Jerome Dickey can tell a good story, Terry McMillan may appeal to you as a person but Rasheed Clark takes telling a story to the next level.

    That's What Friends Are For

    Admit it, we all have them. Me. And yes, you! We all have secrets. We¿ve all done and/or said things we wouldn¿t tell anybody but God out of fear nobody would understand. Author Rasheed Clark gathered up a few, mixed them together and created his debut novel. In a ¿telling it like it is, hold no punches¿ manner, Rasheed chronicles the drama filled lives of four best friends, Brian, Sista, Nikki and Day. They don¿t realize how much they need each other until tragedy strikes. This novel will make you laugh, cry and sure enough agree with everything these characters have to say. Mr. Clark covers every angle by dealing with relatable issues of love, death, and every day goings-on.

    I Was Truly Amazed By This Book

    I was truly amazed by the originality of this story and the depth of the characters. The story itself rewarded readers for being intelligent human beings and allowed the reader to not only be entertained but through the words of the characters become apart of the story. That itself is a true compliment to the author and an accomplishment to be admired by the author. It is rare when you can truly feel what the character is going through. With so many books out there ready to bore people to tears, this book kept me on the edge of my seat with characters that seemed to jump from the pages. I personally connected with the character of Nikki, she to me, was the bearer of hope that even in the worst situations that life goes on. It is truly not what happens to it but how you deal with it. This book changed how I looked at people and the things that they do. I also enjoyed Nikki's friendship with Sista because it felt real and grounded. This book is not only a must read, it's a must buy. One that you can actually enjoy again and again.

    My new favorite author

    Rasheed Clark is my new favorite author. He wrote a bestseller with Stories I wouldn't tell Nobody but God. I was saddened to have the book end. I really wanted to read more about the characters. I loved the book, it was well written, an easy read, and full of humor. I love a book that makes me laugh. The wierd part was, it made me cry, and angry, and frustrated, and happy, all in the same novel. Rasheed Clark, where and when can I buy your next book?, I would like it ASAP, I'd like to read more of what you write! Ladies and Gentlemen reading this, buy a copy, and pick up one for a friend too, because you definitely won't want to lend yours out.

    A Real Conversational Piece

    Thought-provoking, provocative, honest and breath-taking aren't enough to describe this book. This book was a breath of fresh air at a time when other writers only write what people want talk about, but this book talks about the things people should talk about. This book actually helped me come to terms with something about myself, what was it? That's is a conversation I will keep to myself. I only hope it does the same for you. You will never be the same. I highly recommend this book.

    You'll fall in love with this book!

    I fell in love with this book. From page 1 to page 320 it challenged my emotions. I have never felt so connected to a book. It evoked feelings of happiness, sadness, comfort, joy, excitement and nostalgia. Truly when people say this author describes you or someone you know they are completely accurate. I would reccommend this book to anyone with a sense of humor, anyone who loves romance, anyone who loves a good story, and anyone who can read - because there is something in its pages for everyone. I am in love with this book, and cannot wait for the next.

    This Book Packed A One-Two Punch

    I have read a lot of books, but none of them have come close to being as good as this one. Not one. When I say Rasheed delivered, I mean he truly delivered. Rasheed left no stone unturned in telling this story that dealt with all the things anybody can relate to family, relationships, love, infidelity and acceptance. This book packs the one two punch that has been missing from a lot of fiction out there. Even I wasn't ready for this book. From the sassy Sista, to neurotic Nikki, to the stable Brian, who stole the book, in my opinion and Day, who will break your heart, this book is filled with believable characters and a story that will make you laugh, will make you cry and will make you think that even for a minute he's talking about you. I never knew a book could be this honest. When I say this is a good book, trust me, it is. It is one that you will not be able to put down and may be up a couple of nights because you can't wait to see what's next. You don't understand how many times I wanted to call somebody and talk about this book at three o'clock in the morning. I'm glad to see Rasheed is finally getting the recognition he deserves, so he can share this book with the world. This book is true wake up call for a lot of women out there and a lot of men. That's why I ordered a copy for both my sister and my brother. Trust me, you are going to want to talk about this one. This just may be the book of the year 2006.
