Publisher's Summary

Life is perfect for Donna and Kim Boon when they move in with their aunt, until her murder unearths a secret that will alter everything they've ever known.

Donna and Kim Boon moved to Houston, Texas, with their Aunt Lisa when they were orphaned at 10 years old. Lisa raised the girls as her own, showering them with everything a young woman could want. The girls have grown up into beautiful and privileged Houstonites and are two of the most eligible bachelorettes in the city, with more suitors than they know how to handle. Life seems perfect, but when Aunt Lisa is gunned down in cold blood, the girls discover a family secret that will change their lives forever.

deja vu

As this book first started I was really into it I really love Ellis Park's voice but as they got further into the book it started to sound real familiar almost too familiar. The author printed her book in 2015 it was a series called ( The Circle ) and might I add it ends a lot better I really hate that the book was verbatim the only thing changed instead of 2 siblings there were 4 but pretty much everything else was exactly the same as THE CIRCLE smh

A lil upset

I struggled to finish reading it. I love Ellis Park voice so that's the man reason I listened to it. Secondly I live in Houston but there really wasn't any descriptive places besides a club that the name has changed. I think if the story is set in a specific city, then a few landmarks or even streets could've been named🤷🏾‍♀️ The story over all kinda reminded me of the series The Circle Fallon's Story I believe. (It kud be Rainas story...its been a minute) From the long lost love but was supposed to be a mark. To finding out her "captain save a hoe" was actually turning her in. Even the conversation they had before SHE found out that he was with the shxts..."His baby mamas". It was ironic i guess. Being in Houston, it kud have been way better is all. Thankfully Ellis Park got me through it with his sexii voice 🤪🤣

H-Town

I'm from Houston so I was looking for more references to the city but overall the story was good. I knew Keraun was going to be grimey. The girls out there in the world just trying to make it, I totally get that. I really liked Aunt Lisa, she was a baddddd chic. The blast from the past ending made me smile.

hmmm

As I was listening to this book I was like hmm I read this book before. This book has parts from another book I read. A lot of the same scenarios. A lot of the same story lines just different characters. I'm not going to say what book but it's basically the same. S till liked the book.

Somebody Copied Somebody

The story was VERY similar to a previous story I’ve listened to. Once it started sounding like a repeat, i zoned out and just focused on Ellis Parks voice. I’ve came to like the raspiness of it. Out of 10, I’d give the story a 3. I’d give Ellis an 8.5, just bc i love his voice

Good til end

Story was good til the end and then the story line was oddly similar to the book, The Circle: Rain’s Story. I was done after that because it had way too many similarities.…

Nail-bitter!!

When I 1st began the book, I thought it would be terrible. At first the narrator did not sound enthused. After giving it a chance, the voices he gave the characters and enthusiasm got better and better. So many twists in this book. I was hooked until the very end. I was so anxious throughout the entire reading of the book and how it would end.

The circle (copy)

As other reviewers have said this book was almost the the same as the circle series. The lines and everything. It was so lazy. I wasted my time. The circle was way better. Don't waste your time. I didn't care for the narrator I like when they actually change their voice for each character. It was hard to listen to especially the parts when something dramatic happened.

Female voices for Female characters

Please have a woman read the female characters, sometimes it's a little rough listening to a male voice. The storyline was great so I had to suffer to the end.
