Overview

Vacant Values, Vindictive Vixens, Vicious Vices, Violent Villains, Vulnerable Vanity, Venomous Vows...V Growing up as one of the unattainable Bell sisters was always bittersweet. On one end, it prided me. I was one of the most desired girls of the neighborhood, a piece to a strong family puzzle that many envied. On the more trying end, we were declared a trio, branded by the actions of one another. Our mother, the matriarch, always instilled in us that family was everything; we were our sisters and a representation of her. There was power in the V she would often say. So while one of us craved the bad boys, another became blinded by success and status, and last, the baby, let s just say she was addicted to love. And that was us and it was tolerable. Just like you, we had obstacles and though our worlds were rocked, they were never shattered, because family was always at the core. But one day that changed. A sequence of ugly events placed our lives into an unstopping whirlwind of desire, betrayal, corruption, infidelity, and even death. Little did we know, our story, the story of The Bell sisters, the story of our lives, was being written in the process. Within these pages holds our secrets disguised as a nostalgic and dark tale of reality. Our family will never be the same...

    Excellent! Such a moving novel!

    I loved this book from the first page to the very last sentence. I feel as though the author pulled pieces from my life and wrote them into the lives of the Bell sister's. Each sister hada personal story to share; you couldn't help but laugh, cry and even get angry at some of the choices they made. This author always hits home with certain subjects, it makes you open your eyes to subjects that some don't dare to grace. She does it with such respect and witt that you can't help but want to support her work. Once again another master piece beautifully written. I hope for part two!!!

    more from this reviewer

    Wow what can I say about this book?! Takerra Allen did her thin

    Wow what can I say about this book?! Takerra Allen did her thing with this book!!! I have been looking for a book to hold my attention from beginning to end and this book definitly did just that.

    There's Power in the V takes the readers on such an emotional journey with the three Bell sisters. All three sisters are different in their own right. They were all taught how to value family because family should come first.

    Val is the oldest sister who from the outside looking in one may think she has everything going for herself but as we all know everything that glitters isnt gold!

    Vickie is the middle sister who is married with children and will do anything to make sure her family is ok. She makes sure to always put her family first.

    Veronica is the baby sister who loves her family deeply and is just looking for love in the wrong people because they take her kindness and use it against her.

    All three sisters are beautiful in their own way and though they may each have moments with each other where they cant stand each other because of whatever reason but through it all they always have each other's back.

    There was soo much in this Book Takerra gave it all ... drama, twists and turns, love, lies, deceit I mean everything! I laughed with the sisters and i cried with them this book can really take the readers on an emotional journey because you get a feel for each character.

    Really a great read and I think everyone should read it!!
