A Review 24 Hours LaterWhewreview 24 hours laterWhew This is a good "contemporary novel with an unfortunate title and a ridiculous cover I actually passed it over several "novel with an unfortunate title and a ridiculous cover I actually passed it over several because I couldn t take it seriously Had it not been for a random free read I would never have given this a second glance I digressThis is not erotica not really romance but in my opinion very much street lit or urban lit or whatever baby mamas doughboys hood life collouial dialogue and two hopelessly clueless main characters Nowfor a lot of readers this is a turn off and I totally get that But it is indeed a story that makes you care about the characters immensely and takes you through every single emotion imaginable That is the mark of a good novel I suppose the rest is just noiseBottom line I won t spoil it for you but prepare to get worked up prepare to yell at all the characters prepare to laugh a bit and shake your head prepare to fall in love and prepare to get your heart broken a little bit This was a very heart warming and realistic story Nicole your typical hard working loving mother who just want the be Loved it This author is soo realI love that his love stories are both heartwarming but also believable Everything in this story could have really happened He writes the story so that it s not boring but believable I bought this book because of all the good reviews and the fact that I had read another book by this author and loved it the cover didn t hurt either LOL I was a little skeptical at first because the main character is a stripper but hey they need love too so why not read about itThis is not your typical romance novel Charles is a stripper and an ex con and Nicole is a single mom of 3 There are baby mamas and baby daddies to contend with The language is rough And while this is probably not considered urban or street lit which I don t like it s probably fairly close But the story is so real and the characters are so relatable that you can t help but enjoy it I LOVED Charles he was so determined to do the right thing both for himself and everybody else Nicole was such a sweetheart and a good mom I loved her interactions with Shawn and thought the way that his issue was dealt with was so on pointKeith Thomas Walker is a wonderful storyteller He told this story from both Charles and Nicole s perspective and did a great job The cast of characters were a mess I started reading this on the subway and struggled not to laugh out loud at the scene in the beginning when Nicole was at work and Twyla thought she put the customer on hold and was talking crazy with the Rat Pack Oh
"No I Didn T Mean "I didn t mean ma am Too funny And Stacy Charles s baby mama also had me dying laughing when he went to pick up CJ for the family date Where that ho park Who is you just ratchet but don t we all now somebody like this He really brought all the characters to life Well done sir well done I ve already bought The Realest Nicole should've Cinderella for a Night (36 Hours, known better than to hook up with an exotic dancer Charles Hester aka Dripping Chocolate is mouth wateringly fine but he came with two baby mamas a prison rap.
