Everybody has a little freak in them..or do they?

The Freak Within is the story of five individuals - Kia, Ari, Phyllis, Simeon, and Maine. Kia, Ari, and Phyllis are friends. Kia, a hairstylist, is a married mother of one. Ari may be business savvy, but can't seem to get a grip on her personal life. Phyllis has to fight daily to keep her legs closed. Simeon is Kia's husband. Maine is a longtime friend of Ari's.

Based on the title alone, I couldn't wait to delve into the pages of this book. Page after page after page, I kept asking myself the same question - "Where is the FREAK?" Aside from the issues of one character, the title was lost on me. The book had potential, but fell short. A few characters were underdeveloped and quite a few things I found to be inconsequential to the story. I applaud the author for her effort and would be willing to give her sophomore novel a try.

Its very refreshing to read a novel that tickles the conscious. Courtney Ware manages to keep it simple yet intoxicating and very honest. We all have a little 'freak' on the inside. Liberate your inner libido with this treasure!
