Overview

God Still Don't Like Ugly by Mary Monroe

New York Times bestselling author Mary Monroe's heart-stopping tale about a woman who's suffered too much to give up on herself, even if everyone else has. . .

Growing up, Annette Goode thought all men were as low-down as the father who abandoned her, including the boarder who abused her for years and the men she slept with to earn the money she needed to run away from her life. Now, after decades of heartache and severing ties with her dangerously unstable friend Rhoda, Annette's real life has started to take shape. . .

But her dark past won't let her go. When an old secret scares away her fiancé, Annette settles with Pee Wee Davis, her on-again, off-again sweetheart since childhood. Then her ex-friend Rhoda suddenly walks back into her life, forcing Annette to decide what she should believe--and what she can forgive--as she tries to salvage the one relationship she just can't seem to let go. . .

I probably wouldn't have read the 1st novel, God Dont Like Ugly if it hadn't been offered free by BN. I was pleasantly surprised! I was so hooked by the characters and what happened to them that as soon as I finished it, i had to download the continuation, God Still Dont Like Ugly. It was a well written account of a young black woman's life that pulled you in and made you feel for the characters. You found yourself rooting for the main character, angry for her and feeling genuine emotions. I highly recommend this read! It appears as of now, both books can be purchased for less than $10, and it is worth EVERY penny.

I really enjoyed the first book to which I could not but down, I fell in love with the characters of the book. When I finally read God Still Don¿t like Ugly, I could not put the book down I was so please that Annette had grown into her self and she was pleased with who she had become, also that she and her father was building such a lovely relationship. It also showed how her past at some point backfired and in some way I was very happy to know that she rekindled her relationship with her childhood friend. Hats off to Mary Monroe Great Book definitely a must read.

I admit that @ first I was bored with the book thinking many times that I read this in teh first book. However it proved me wrong and ended up being a great great book! I am so glad that Annette after all, she's been through finally found what she was really looking for. It's a great book, and I would recommend it to all!

Monroe is a good author. She needs to learn that a good story doesn't need profanity to make it good.

I don't think that there was enough "new" material to warrant a whole other book. That being said, it was well written and had a solid ending.
