Three women form an unbreakable bond in a sexy, suspenseful, and adventurous novel about empowerment and sisterhood through thick and thin.
Venus McGee, Draya Carter, and Jackie Benson are coworkers with a lot in common. They’re smart, independent, driven, and deserving of recognition—certainly more than they’ve been handed by a demoralizing boss. He’s the topic of conversation at their impromptu get-together after the company holiday party, where the threesome fantasizes about a life without him. There has to be an alternative to taking a deep breath and sucking it up. There is. It’s just not the one they expected.
When morning comes, Venus, Draya, and Jackie are blindsided by murder—a twist of fate that brings a startling new challenge to the table and forces them to navigate a hair-raising detour they never saw coming. For better and (unless they can help it) for worse, it’s going to turn their world upside down. What starts as a necessary bond of mutual trust soon morphs into an empowering and galvanizing friendship that Venus, Draya, and Jackie need now more than ever.

Wha ultimately made me decide to grabbed this from Kindle Unlimited was the cover and the synopsis. They both immediately grabbed my attention. Unfortunately I got bored really quick. I just felt like it took too long to get to the meat and potatoes of the plot/story and ultimately I became uninterested pretty fast.

This book did have promise and I definitely had the potential. The characters in the book were amazing. I felt like they were built perfectly and this is what ultimately determined my rating. Honestly, reflecting back on my read of this book, I probably would have rated this book lower, but I originally rated this book based on the potential that I felt it had.

My Rating:

3 star
