4STAR Great read.....Lawrence makes me excited! By Siren on April 29, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Some reviews crack me up. Getting mad because a fiction book was not realistic. If that is not an oxymoron...LOL
I really liked this book and I loved Lawrence even more. He got me excited and I do not even know why! This is where the fiction vs. non-fiction comes into play. In my fantasy land, I had no problem with the way he raised his daughters. I thought the twins were everything, They made me so proud being quick to pull a trigger, yet carrying out methodical plans before doing so. I favored Monique because she was not hot headed and absorbed all details, so she could make informed decisions. Now, in real life; there is no freaking way in h3ll that I wouild let my husband raise my daughters like that. I would body him myself. Reading about gangsters is different from playing gangster.
I knew what time it was with Jamal and I did not like him from day 1. I think it had to do with how he was talking in the barbershop. I hate men like that; bragging on pu$$y that they have never had a whiff of. His fate was well deserved.
I want Domonique and Shadow to get together. Forget Desmond...who is he anyway...LOL...
I am looking forward to part II and cannot wait to see the aftermath of the horse ranch. Dollar need to get it in the worst way.
