    1. I thought this was a very entertaining book. One of those beach reads, or in my case, plane/train reads. It's not as well written as her other more well-known books, but it had the right elements to keep me entertained. As always, I enjoy reading about women of color and especially when they are portrayed as strong and successful women, which is not too often. Valdes has found a great niche with her female characters and portrayals. I definitely recommend reading it, but not if this is your firs [...]

    2. I love the writing of Alisa Valdes. The women are empowering, or become empowering as the story goes. These women may have issues with men in the beginning, but they always learn that to be truly happy they have to be true and live for themselves. A man doesn't define you, they are just another color on the palate at which to paint your life. Her stories show you don't have to settle for a man just because, you can take a chance and meet a great guy who respects you for you. Living in New Mexico [...]

    3. I love Alisa Valdes, I really do! This book seemed to fall a little short compared to some of her other work, but was still entertaining. I really liked the characters, but I do wish the book had been a bit longer, with more details, does that make sense? Especially MacKenzie, I wanted to know how her "new life" starts out, and what happeneds between her and Justin. This was definitely a fast paced read, I had it done within a couple of hours, but needed more substance.

    4. I really enjoyed this book. characters were nice to read and welli'm not familiar with the author's work, but, this was a nice break from all of those sexy, kinky books i've been reading for almost 2 years now.Though i gotta say that when i got to the last page, i was like "what???? where's the bloody rest'???" so yeah, i kinda missed more action and more development of the stories, but it was a good read :-)

    5. The book was ok It touched on some everyday issues Love, Hate and Heartache I liked certain aspects of the characters although I'd have to said Yardbird was my favorite Some of it was predictable but it was still ok to read Idk if I'd continue it if it was a series The ending was quick and I feel as though a little was left unsaid but you get the picture

    6. This was a quick read for a lazy Saturday, not my favorite of my Alisa Valdes books but enjoyable nonetheless. She always offers fun and lovable characters so I look forward to each book to see who she has dreamed up this time. I kind of wish this story had been longer or maybe a sequel to see where the two leading ladies' new adventures take them!

    7. It was good but not great. It was cute but predictable. It was an easy average read. It had a great message but a somewhat sped-up time line that made allude fetched at points. I don't like open ended endings, and there are areas of the book that I would have liked a little more clarification (ie. her mom issues) Not up to par with the Dirty Girls series but the novel wasn't bad.

    8. I really like this author and will read just about anything she writes. I really liked the premise of this story and overall message- follow your bliss, stay true to yourself, your family and your roots. I just thought the book was too short and some of the story lines developed too quickly.

    9. Yuck. What was she thinking? I didn't like the characters and the ending was rushed. Disappointed. I really enjoyed her other books.

    10. For some reason the other reviews are for another book. This is about All That Glitters. Good characters. I enjoyed this book.
