Cheaper to Keep Her #2 by Kiki Swinson

Cheaper to Keep Her #2

Rating: 4-Stars

Summary on Goodreads.

"Lynise Carter has been released from jail and she's not happy. In fact, she's ready to get revenge..." [More +].

This book was as good as the first one but I had two major concerns.

First, the story perpetuates the stereotype of women being bitches who still other women's men. Lynise wants to have sex with Bishop because she likes him; she also knows he has a woman. Does she respect that? No, her though was "maybe I'll fuck him so good he will leave her for me."

Really? Is that how women want to get a man? I mean, I know Lynise is supposed to be gettho but, come on! Maybe we could send another message?

The other thing that bugged me was that Lynise advised the detectives to say that the guy who died got killed in a gunfire with them. "Of course they jumped at the opportunity" (pg. 265). Well, don't some type of bullet test need to be done? Don't they need to mat h the bullets to the guns? I mean, I don't know anything about how the police operates but I ha e watched enough CIS and read enough crime books to know that Lynise advise didn't sound right.

So other than those two minor points, the story was good and entertaining.
