Appetizer takes you into the world of three girlfriends named Yazmin, Monae, and Nia. The twists and turns of their story will have you on the edge of your seat. This book will have you asking, "Would you be satisfied with the appetizer, or do you want the full course?"

Yazmin's life couldn’t be better. She was expecting twins and in love with the man of her life, Trey. Things suddenly take a turn for the worse when Yazmin is in a life-threatening accident, causing the early arrival of her twins. Yazmin’s world is forever changed when the man she thought she knew as Trey has a gigantic secret that could ruin everything. Will Yazmin confront her boyfriend about his lies, or will other obstacles prevent her from getting her family back?

Monae was trying to finish school and also keep her man Malik happy at the same time. Malik felt that Monae never had enough time for him. He was serving his country in the military, and when they get together, he wanted all of her, not just some of her. As their relationship begins to crumble, Monae is really trying to do anything to save her strained relationship. Monae plans a surprise intimate birthday party for him, but what Monae doesn’t know is that she’s not the only one waiting for Malik to come home.

Nia has always had her share of problems with men. Bad relationships after another seem to be her track record. When DeVaughn comes into the picture, Nia is well aware that DeVaughn has a wife, but she is determined to do everything his wife is not doing to make DeVaughn hers. Things are going well until a old flame comes into Nia’s life. Trying to juggle two relationships begins to be tricky, and Nia resorts to drastic and shiesty tactics to see both men. But how long can this charade continue without someone getting hurt?

The Appetizer was a great read by Ni'cola Mitchell. Ms. Mitchell touched on some much needed subjects, including secrets, betrayal, and deceit. She shows how each woman handles their circumstances, which made it hard for me to put the book down. Every woman and man can relate to the scenarios in The Appetizer. Many things could have and would have been avoided if honesty and realness were displayed. Sometimes a lesson learned is needed to understand the consequences and ramifications of any and every situation. I will be waiting for Ms. Mitchell's next book, because The Appetizer was definitely on point.
