Mary never disappoints, her ability to capture a city and the culture of the people in her stories are phenomenal! The wit and defined narration are always on point. Mary Monroe is a true GOAT!

Ms. Monroe Does It Again!! 😊

Just when you thought reading her previous books couldn’t get any better, she hit you with THIS!! I couldn’t see the twists and turns headed straight for me with these characters, which became my personal associates as well. She definitely has a knack for drawing you in like that. I could go on, but will suffice it to say, “BRAVO!!!” Love your style , Ms. Monroe & please, “Keep up your great works!” 😆👍🏽😊✅

Awesome!

I was unable to get enough of it! The characters were believable and intriguing. What a rollercoaster of lies, sex and deceit.
