Book Review: 

Few Spoilers here and there….

The Other Side of Dare is really good, and it getting juicer and juicer, Lord I didn’t want to put this book down and stop reading but I had to. I was like I have to find out what happened next. Lord knows I have to get and find the other book so I can find out if Andrew will learn about Paris sleeping with Darius, myself I couldn’t figure out if they did or not. And the devil not finishes with Darius, it’s like he doesn’t want help or to actually fix his marriage in the right way. He may end up losing more than what he wanted and I bet Paris will be right in the middle and lose Andrew. But I couldn’t hate Gabrielle, as much as other people but she wanted her daughter back and I thought it was right for her to get a full custody of her own child. Hopefully, she will tell her daughter Jasmin who her father and siblings are instead of holding out on secret and be whiny when the girl finds out. But this book was not a letdown nor was I disappointed.

Description:

When a battle of wills threatens to tear a family apart, a child shall lead them–straight to a shocking secret. Will they betray their faith–and each other–to keep it buried?
After seven years of marriage, Paris Simmons-Holyfield and her husband, Andrew, are still childless. Now Paris is determined to adopt orphaned nine-year-old Jasmine Noble. Trouble is, Jasmine’s in the custody of ex-stripper Gabrielle Mercedes. Worse, Andrew is vehemently against the idea–and he’s not alone. Paris’s father, Lawrence Simmons, a powerful politician, has vowed to shut his daughter down. The only man to even dare be on Paris’s side is shady Darius Connors. Unemployed and not quite out of the dog house with his wife, Darius is more than happy to help the beautiful, vulnerable, yet undeterred Paris. . .
Paris has her suspicions about why her husband and her father are so opposed to the adoption. But the reality is far more scandalous than she imagines. To get to the bottom of it, she’ll have to deal with blackmail from the last person she ever expected–and battle Gabrielle, who’ll fight with everything she’s got–including the truth. Soon, all involved will learn just what’s on the other side of dare. . .

I am hoping this book is good as her other two books I read. I think this is the first book. But not sure.

Book Review:

Few Spoilers….

I really enjoyed reading this book the only problem I have is the big girl > skinny girl. Gets pretty annoying after awhile especially if you a big girl you wouldn’t like for skinny chick to say why you so fat. Or she a whale. But in every book I read by this author. It’s like she dislike skinny females.

Other then that annoying part I enjoyed this and I figured that Fresh was family of the kid Snoop. He a perv anyway for dating a 16 year old though wasn’t he like 20 just like Ke’Ron at least K had more since to wait. But her mom dipping out on her and then her daddy smh just crazy she had nobody but she had a fucked up attitude remind me of 17 y/o niece. But she way worse with her mouth ISIS was.

But when I read the back I’m like maybe her brother the stick up kid was going to get murder be it was her brother who had a disability like come on who going to kill a person with a disability like get real, but I wish her brother had a bit more common since to not get in a car with strangers dang.

Book Description:

When some girls put a beatdown on her, she took back what was hers. When her brother was killed and her mom, Queenie, bailed, Isis fought to stay strong. And when her dad abandoned her for his new family, sixteen-year-old Isis buried the hurt by looking out for herself—and hookin’ up with bad boy Fresh…until a run-in with the law shatters Isis’s world and threatens to destroy her future. 

Now the only person Isis can rely on is herself…until her secret crush K-Rock steps in. But when Isis lets her guard down, will she be given a second chance to get her life straight or will it cost her everything?
