NEW REVIEW: Kiki Swinson and Noire - Lifestyles of the Rich and Shameless
Kiki Swinson and Noire - Lifestyles of the Rich and Shameless - Available Now! - 5 out of 5 books -
I didn't know what to expect when I started to read this
novel. I knew with both of my favorite authors featured, this book wouldn't disappoint.
This novel is two short stories written by each author. From the start to the end, you will see that money doesn't always bring you
happiness and love, and at times, it can cause more problems.
Megan Rich was daddy's little girl. She had everything at
her disposal....cars, designer clothes, and money you can burn. Once Megan looks at her father and talked in
her baby voice, her dad could never say no to his baby girl. But Megan loved to
live on the bad side. She liked bad boys, dabbling in drugs, and defying all of her parents' rules.
Things take a drastic turn when Megan’s parents give her an ultimatum of either
going to rehab or moving out. What decision
will Megan make? Will she get the help she needs, or will she make the streets
her new family, ending in deadly consequences?
Puttin' Shame in the Game
Noble was an eligible bachelor in search of a wife. With three eligible women, Noble's time is winding down when a choice must be made.
Slowly but surely, Noble learns that everything that glitters is not gold, and he
finds out who has his back and who doesn't. Will Noble make the right choice,
or will the woman he chooses for his wife reveal herself in the worst way?
Both stories were written very well and showed the many facets
of how money can changed a person for the worst. Both short stories exposed
drugs, sex, greed, compassion, as well as manipulation. Lifestyles of the Rich and Shameless is not one to
disappoint, and both authors’ stories will keep you wanting more.
