She Had It Coming is Definitely All Right!!

Mary Monroe is a great storyteller! This book is the lastest in her ability to weave together characer development and great dialogue. Ms. Monroe is great at descriptive storytelling and plot development. She is graphic at talking about benign deception, getting caught, developing remorse, and having to accept one's fate. This is a great read for everyone who wants it all but is doing it because 1) they don't know how to say no, 2) they want to feel good, 3) they don't know how to stop, and 4) they are in over their head. This is a great book and is highly recommended!

Just Dumb

I listened... and listened. And I kept waiting for it to get good. Then I realized that this book was just dumb. Not sure where all the good reviews came from, or why because I feel like hours of my life have just been wasted.

Classic semi-ghetto fiction

Not a bad book. It's definately an interesting read from Ms. Patricia R. Floyd, who is always great. However, the book has a few things in it that just seem implausible, and overly dramatic, but that's usually par for the course for novels like these. Very entertaining.

excellent plot idea. poor execution

*I've had the book for a few months and each time I attempted to listen I put it down.
This story was one that I would chalk up to missed potential. Excellent plot idea. Poor execution.

1. The audio is 20 chapters and almost 12 hours. After 13 chapters and 7 1/2 hours the story finally got interesting. The author overwhelmed the story with redundant and irrelevant Information via an innner monologue. Patricia R. Floyd couldn't even improve the listen.

2. The female lead came across as simple and self-absorbed. This is the 3rd book that had female leads as simple minded. Again, I feel like I'm listening to a different book that the other reviewers. The writing makes you think the characters are middle schoolers and not grown women
a. What grown woman jumps up and down to get semen out of her? This is not set in the 1920s or even the 50s
b. Delores took off screaming when Marvin kissed her at her bday party..This again reminds me of a simpleton. That's just not a logical reaction for a woman and not a woman in LA that eats at places like the Ivy. It just added to the entire oddity of this character.
3. Where was the connection/the chemistry between any of the characters?
4. I vaguely remember that I enjoyed God don't like ugly. It makes me want to pull it out and re-listen or read, because this can't be the same author. I think I might have to give up on this author.
5. The topics (bigamy, murder, domestic abuse, foster care, sexual assault) it touched on were overshadowed by the ridiculous amount of detail
6. Valerie was "thirsty" , but we didn't see it. We only heard about it second hand. The plot twist that involved her was easily identified the moment Delores met "Marvin".
a. the one and only interesting item in this tale was a mentioned as a gossip tidbit during a "rundown" on Valerie. THIS would have been interesting to explore, but it was a sentence.
7. I think the story gets away from the author and that results in 90% build up and information overkill, 5% movement and the remaining 5% spent to wrap up the story OR leave you with a cliffhanger.
8. The story was wrapped in a nice convenient bow the last 30 minutes of the story. It was disappointing that Delores learned nothing & still learned nothing or evolved even after becoming a mother.
a. I'm hoping a sequel is not in the works..not with Delores as the heroine.

This book coupled with the first 2 books of the lonely heart series make me not one to read book 3 in that series.

I enjoyed this story

I like this story. At times it seemed like Lo didn't care about but herself. I always liked Floyd and there was always an amount of pity that I had for him. But Paul was just an ass for no reason. You could always tell he looked down on her. The ending left much to be desired but overall it was a good story

Excellent All Around!!!

This narrator had my sides hurting from laughing so hard😆😅🤣
I know the story was no comedy, but I truly appreciate the funny lines sprinkled throughout.

I found it so incredulous that Loris kept managing to get "entangled" in so much avoidable drama🤦🏽‍♀️😂I hope there's a part II. This book was extremely enjoyable & even lighthearted. I'm not sure why the wrong chapters kept being announced, however that did not take anything away from the story or performance. Mary Monroe created a beautiful work of art here& Patricia delivered it exquisitely.
