Publisher's Summary

The past always has a way of catching up with you.

Charisma Canton was born and raised in the heart of Baltimore, where she learns that a moment's pleasure can sometimes lead to a life of pain. Against her better judgment, she has a one-night stand that changes her life forever. Turning over the family business to her cousin, she leaves behind her past. Charisma moves to Miami, where she meets Mr. Manny Manifesto, aka Mr. Baseball. Manny is coming off his best season ever, bringing with him a freshly inked $250 million-plus contract. After a chance meeting, Charisma sees an opportunity to start anew, and she and Manny attempt to build a relationship. The sex might be good, but will their omissions and the deeds of their pasts come back to haunt them?

Unusual Story

What didn’t you like about Lynnette Freeman’s performance?

Lynnette's reading made this story completely boring and a joke. The different voices she used were annoying and jokey. I especially hate the way she read in the male characters voices. The narration was more like listening to a Saturday morning cartoon rather than a book reading.

Was Charisma worth the listening time?

No. I managed to get through it but it wasn't enjoyable.

this was a rushed book

the story was rushed so much was left out that you were thinking that you skipped something or you miss something and I would go back to check and that wasn't the case she just rushed this I love her as an author I have all of her books but this one here she could have done a whole lot better and took her time and slow down

Ok

I really liked this book and I would recommend it. It had a great storyline and sexual storylines. The narrator was good. I would have given this book 5 stars if the author hadn't used God's name in vain. You don't have to use "GD" to have a great book.

This couple was great together and Chucky found out everything thing when old girl hadn't told him how she was being blackmailed and treated by that richet couple.

I wish this book was a movie or TV show.
