The Sexy Nerd's Review. . .
Jett was a famous singer and entertainer. Much like her sister, Chantel had singing chops as well, but wasn’t as fortunate to get discovered. Hmm, one would think Jett would have put her on, but Jett being the narcissist she was, that spotlight couldn’t be shared by anyone other than herself. Chantel did everything she could to reach out to her sister to advise her that their mother had passed, but Jett was too busy living the dream with her boy toy of the month and couldn’t have bothered to return Chantel’s calls.
That is, until finally she listened to the voice messages and called Chantel right away. Of course, Chantel was distraught and grief-stricken, and Jett advised she’d be home on the first red eye to join her. What Chantel didn’t know at the time of their mother’s death was how much debt she was in. The bank was about to foreclose on their mother’s house, and she didn’t have enough money to pay for it as well as all the debt she racked up from her ex-husband’s gambling addiction. She advised Jett of her financial situation and Jett wasn’t thinking about lending her sister a dime to help her with jack.
But, right as things were starting to coast along, Chantel began cleaning out their mother’s house when she discovered a photograph that changed the course of her life and threatened the comeback Jett was so hoping for. So, readers, you’ll have to read to find out the rest.
As you can clearly see, what I just explained is vastly different than what the synopsis states. I kept waiting for Chantel to write this tell-all book, which is what hooked me into reading this in the first place, only to discover that narrative never happened. In fact, don’t pay the synopsis any attention because this story has nothing to do with what the author wrote. And what I found most disappointing is I was really hoping the story did go the way it was promoted. This story is not bad by any means. I did like the story and the characters were well thought out and planned, but I didn’t care for the ending because it didn’t match where the story was taking the reader. It’s not a bad ending, but again, you’ll have to read to decide for yourself.
The Sexy Nerd gives Blind Ambition three pairs of eyes to further the cause. Nerds, I'll reiterate this isn’t a bad book. It’s written well, but just know going in what you’re told the book is about, isn’t what you’re going to read. If that suits you, I’m cool with it too. Until next time, you know what to do.
