My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Description
Sasha Wellington has put herself on the fast track to success. Fresh out of college, she's got her career as a fashion designer and entrepreneur all planned out. Her only wild card is choosing which city to launch from. When fate points her to Atlanta, she sets out to make her dreams come true... Before she knows it, Sasha's befriended by two rival BFFs. First, there's Norman, savvy stylist to Atlanta's stars, from the A-list on down. Then there's Paris, an outrageous personality with a questionable nightlife. Between their antics, Sasha's beyond grateful for her coworker, Casey. Married to an NBA player, Casey's got class. But there's more than meets the eye to being a baller's wife. And the more time Sasha spends among the movers and shakers, the clearer it gets that just like on reality TV, the truth lies behind-the-scenes. Still, she's not worried about getting caught up in the drama--until she's romanced by a baller of her own. Can she stick to her game plan, or will Hotlanta derail her future--and reveal a side of herself even she didn't know existed? 

Book Review

I listened to the book on Audible. There were a few pros going on this 9 hours and 51-minute tale.  The narrator did an excellent job of bringing the characters life. Norma was a favorite character. You'll see why once you listen. The final pro was the Epilogue, which was the last 28 minutes of the story.
However, the cons were many. There was no chemistry between the characters in the slow-paced delivery. The transitions were poor, confusing timelines and unnecessarily wordy and lengthy flashbacks.

This book had real potential, but it missed the mark on almost every level. The author had a good group of characters and the perfect setup for a hot read but failed. This story should have picked up after a prologue that included flashback of how she got to the point of being pregnant. The epilogue should have been chapter 1. Because this was, unfortunately, was the best part of the story.

Random- Does anyone else thinks that Terrence’s reason for marrying her was ludicrous. He saw her and she was pretty so he wanted to marry her and have kids? Is that all it takes?
