When I'm Bad, I'm Better When I'm Bad, I'm Better 1 & 2 by K.F. Johnson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Description
Rome wasn’t built in a day, and in this present-day drama, neither was the facade these four cousins expended a lifespan constructing. They say good girls finish last…but when they're bad, they're better!
Valerie's just recovered from a career ending accident when her fiancé adds insult to injury by cheating on her with her closest relative. Devastated, angry, and now financially strapped, she’s ready to break all the rules...or is she?
Yasmin's a successful attorney whose failing marriage has left a void that only a side romance has been able to fill. When a crime unexpectedly turns her life upside down, decisions will have to be made...or they'll be made for her.
Vanessa's an aspiring singer who's tired of living in the shadow of her identical twin's success. She's not getting any younger, success doesn’t come cheap and fame costs!
Amina's a beautiful bombshell who uses what she’s got to get what she wants; but she’s harboring seedy secrets that are anything but pretty. As skeletons begin to resurface, she needs them dead and buried...before she is.

Book Review
This series centered around a group of sisters and cousins who had more drama than a little bit in their lives. You had siblings sleeping with each other's partners, escorts, attempted murder, fights, etc.

However, Vanessa, Vanessa, Vanessa-She was something else and that song, Take your Man was funny as hell. She had no shame. I can't say too much without spoiling the book, but needless to say, she was a standout character. These ladies brought the drama and the men didn't disappoint either. The author delivered a well-structured tale of woe. Almost gave you a soap opera feel and it was good.  The narrator did a good job despite mispronouncing product brand names, which I started to believe was purposefully done. At any rate,  I enjoyed it and I hope there is a followup story. These ladies have more to say I almost positive. Great job!
