Not since Terry McMillan's “Waiting To Exhale,” has a book been so raw, gritty and honest about love, loss, family, relationships, acceptance and trust and put a voice to the collective frustration felt by millions of people looking for love in all of the wrong places.

Finally, somebody will tell the truth about the lies that we tell ourselves. “Stories I Wouldn't Tell Nobody But God,” the long awaited, explosive debut novel by Rasheed Clark, is an emotionally charged, provocative and page-turning story of four friends: Sista, Brian, Day and Nikki and the rollercoaster ride that they call their lives, through triumph and tragedy…

…Sista, who will lose the only man that she has ever truly loved, as she allows her weight to determine her self-worth.

…Brian, who must learn the hard way that a good woman isn't hard to find, he just has to be man enough to keep her.
…Day, who must learn to accept himself for who and what he is.

…Nikki, whose perfect world is shattered when she chooses to love a man more than she has ever loved herself and it almost, cost her, her life, because of that man's infidelity and lies.

Powerfully told, heartwarming and funny, “Stories I Wouldn’t Tell Nobody But God” will leave you wanting more. There are many things, stories that many people wouldn’t tell nobody but God, and still so much more that many people tend to keep to themselves, out of fear that nobody but God would understand…until now.

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 going-ons.

They say God loves fools and babies. Neither one of them know any better. Neither does anyone that reads this book and decided to give it a bad review. Rasheed Clark has put together a book that is uniquely all his own. It is the first book that ever made me laugh, cry and make me look at things from a different point of view.

After reading the last review by somebody who obviously has too much free time on her hands, I couldn't help but laugh. I was wondering if she underlined mistakes in the bible too. As a person that doesn't like to read this book was a breath of fresh air. I encourage readers to decide for themselves what is more important, a good story or one reader? I'm sure you will say good story.

No wonder she or he chose to remian anonymous. What are you, a writer that couldn't write a better book are you?

Don't read this book if you don't have time. I kept trying to put it down. I kept saying after this chapter I was about to go to sleep I didn't. I kept reading. I stayed up all night trying to finish it. The more you read, the more you feel caught up in the lives of the characters. Nikki's story was heart breaking. I love Brian and Day. But, Sista took the cake. Then, that Loretta was a pistol. This is a book I truly enjoyed. Thank you Mr. Clark.

Just the way I like it. I like the twists and turns and the way the writer ended each chapter to make you turn the page. Great book. Interesting read. If I had one problem with the book, it was that the book ended and then I found out there was a sequel.

I read a recent review about this book and the reader gave a less than flattering review about this book. Having read it myself twice, it's one of those books, I had to ask what book was she reading? Maybe she isn't used to stories that challenge your thoughts on friends, family and relationships the way this book does. This book was worth the price for how much I laughed because of it. In a day and age where gangsta lit and baby mama drama is the norm for writers, it's good to see some people still know how to write good stories that people care to read. Great job, Mr. Clark.

I just finished this book this morning after getting it Friday. I was thoroughly impressed. What I liked best was that the book was honest about everything from family, friendships to relationships and loss. Was it the great American novel people expect it to be? No. It was better because it speaks to women that can't speak for themselves. So good job.

I wanted to give kudos to one of the most surprising books I ever read. It surprised me by the range of emotions I felt just reading it. I can't think of another book that made me laugh in one breath and cry in the next. I can't explain it. See if you can when you read it. Kudos to the author and I look forward to reading anything you write.

My friend told me about this book years ago and then, I found out they weren't selling it any more. People borrowed the copies from my local library and they never brought them back. I understand why now. I got my copy of this book Tuesday morning and was finished by the next morning. I actually fell asleep trying to finish it. If there was one book that you need to read this is it. Sista is a trip. Day is so honest. Brian. Brian. Brian. Wow. But Nikki, she is the truth. She is the truth. That is my girl. Buy this book and you will understand what I am feeling. I am reading the sequel "Cold Summer Afternoon" and it's better than the first.

This book had so many grammatical errors. I actually started to highlighting grammatical errors, but by page thirty is was senseless, because it was just too many. The story line is good and there are several places where feelings could have been explained better. I don't know why this book has such high ratings. It is in need of a publisher. The author is however a good story teller and the book is not as predictable as one might think. It does cover some real-life situations and the auther shows some promising literary potential. The book was okay. I thought about not finishing it, but I spent my money so I figured great or not I would finish it. Would I recommend the book, no. Is it worth reading at a library or such, yes.
