    " it was alright, but it was kind of dry. things just didn't flow. it felt like more a telling of facts than a creative story. the beginning read so much like character synopses. it didn't feel imaginative. honestly, the characters seemed to stick entirely too close to the real lives of entertainers we all imagine we know from all the gossip and stories created by a 24/7 news cycle. "

    " im still guessin as to which rapper did what. this was a great read "

    " The ending was rushed. Too rushed. And.. everyone just lives happily ever after? Yeah right. I liked this book for it's catty-ness but hated it for it's simplistic writing. This book could be so much better. If it was a little longer and the characters were better expunged... it would have been a really good story. It sometimes felt like the story was ripped right out of a gossip magazine. I do appreciate that it was a lot lighter of a read than the thrillers I usually read. "

    " Not bad. It kept my interest. Plot wise it was a little weak but with that being said it was well written. You came to care what happened to the people in the story which is pretty good considering the characters are not real. It was missing some steamy sex scenes. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 R.A. Ademulegun | 1/15/2014

    " I loved, loved, and loved this book. The characters were so well defined that I just couldn't get enough of them and felt as though I was a part of their lives. A well written and entertaining book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/11/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book! Would like to read more from her. "

    " Great, fast paced read. Try to guess which current music stars the characters may be based on. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Quan | 11/26/2013

    " Okay, I tried to read this but I didnt really like it. It was kind of boring for me, I ended up reading Section 8 by Kwan and never returned to this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sasha | 11/19/2013

    " Loved it! Can't wait for the sequel! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristina | 11/11/2013

    " A very guilty pleasure filled with all of the gossip and scandal that makes the entertainment industry so interesting. King's writing is down to earth and her knack for conveying emotion kept me wanting more. Great summer read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K. | 11/2/2013

    " Awesome book. I loved everything about it!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 10/11/2013

    " I liked the book. But is it me or where some parts of the book loosely based on real celebrity stories. I will have to read another one of her books to really determine if I am a fan or not. I mean it was a page turner but I really wasn't getting inside the heads of these characters. "

    " Aliya S. King is an excellent penman. This book truly captures the hectic lives of hip-hop's beloved and their spouses. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tahmeka | 9/2/2013

    " I thought that this book could have been so much better. It was 2 steps up from hood lit. I thought that the writing was good but the plot was thin and unoriginal, as it was based on real life events. I didn't like it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gertrude | 3/16/2013

    " I LOVED THIS NOVEL! Fabulous characters, intricate plot & I'm left wanting more. A must-read! Aliya S. King does a great job telling such a salacious tale without the raunchiness you find in most urban fiction novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nichelle | 9/23/2012

    " What a perfectly fun summer book. Juicy and gossip and filled with behind the scenes music industry business. Easy to guess who the main characters were based upon but they remained their own characters regardless. Fun. "
