Sins, Secrets Success by Carolyn Chambers Sanders

The realistic, steamy and gritty writings of author Carolyn Chambers Sanders is often compared to todays TVs reality shows. Using her pass of growing up in the inner city, coupled with the back drop of professional sports she has been able to take her readers to emotional highs and lows of drama, intrigue,romance and lust.

This book was a great read to me that kept you turnning the pages even if at a time you did not know why you just could not put it down. I know people who live like this and I know this world, so these women where already like some of my close friends. The one thing that will kind of throw you off from time to time is the readding when it is talking to you the reader an you didi not know it had switched from telling the story to talking to you. But by all means give this book a shot an see for your self.

Call me crazy, but I really enjoyed this book. One of my coworkers loaned it to me & I literally could not put it down. I pulled an all nighter so I could read it. In fact, I got online the next day & ordered my own copy to share with my friends. I'm really disappointed that the author never followed through on a sequel. I'm a very well read English major & I think it's a wonderful book. If you're looking for a quick & light read, this is the book for you. Parts of it may be trashy, but that's what makes it a perfect guilty pleasure.

THIS BOOK IS OH SO HORRIBLE. THE AUTHOR SHOULD HAVE STUCK WITH BEING DION'S WIFE, STOCK-BROKER, FINANCIAL PLANNER,REAL ESTATE CONSULTANT OR INSURANCE AGENT. THE AUTHOR SHOULD HAVE STOOD IN THE MALL PARKING LOT AND HANDED OUT EVERY COPY OF THIS BOOK FOR FREE. I WISH THE AUTHOR ALL THE SUCCESS ON HER NEXT NOVEL.

Sins, Secrets and Success, by Carolyn Chambers Sanders, is a book about friends Candice, Amber and Toi. Throughout the book the women find themselves involved in sexcapades, betrayal, deceit and murder. Ultimately, the woman find themselves leaning on each other for the love and support that only a true friend can provide.
I found this book to be slightly amusing at best. The author wrote this book in a "girlfriend" tone and often used such words as "nigga" to describe African American men. The main character, Candice, reminded the reader of how "fine" she was continuously and after the first few chapters her character became about as predictable as a monkey eating a bucket of bananas that has been placed in front of him. Additionally, the author tackled such subjects as murder and homosexuality with a certain carelessness. In the story she suggests homosexuality can be forgotten with the love of a good woman and that a woman who kills the man that she loves can forget all about it and live "happily ever after."
Despite the repetitiveness, lack of plot and character development, this author has a lot of raw talent. In time, Sanders could become an excellent writer.

I personally like this book very much. The characters were a bit course but I think thats what made it interesting. I also thought it was an unique touch the way the author talked directly to the reader. She had some valuable insite for the reader especially when she spoke to the fact that the other woman thinks she has something when she gets your man. But deep down she is looking for him to do the same thing to her because of the way she got him. That is so true. As far as the hot, heavy sex and mushiness....Hello!!! this wasnt suppose to be a romance novel. I found it with the mainstream books. As far as the secrets and sins were concerned they were definitely there. I dont know if I would be able to keep a secret like the one Candice and Amber had to keep for life. And what about Toi and the secret she has on Johnny? That was a whopper, now I would like to think I would make a different choice when faced with what Toi faced. God knows I hope I would but who knows. I have known a many women to turn a blind eye to Toi's situation. Now Fred was just a horny freak and wasnt use to women telling him No. I mean really how easy was it for him to do Candice and the others. He wasnt in love....his problem was strictly ego. So what... there was no major drama between Fred, Candice and Michael. I feel like if its over then its over and you dont have time to entertain foolishness and Candice knew Fred was foolish. So why entertain him and his issues. I would have preferred the N-word not being used so much but I think that just let you know them. One thing for sure you can take the girl out of the ghetto but you cant take the ghetto out of the girl. I dont care how successful you are in business or how much money you may have, that still does not give you class. As I use to hear my mother say all the time "if Horsey aint got it then Horsey cant trot it". These girls were successful and had money, but they didnt have class. It was still entertaining though and I know people like every character. I for one thought the book was very good and I cant wait for the sequel.

After reading the first 3 chapters...and i I only read past the third chapter because I was stuck in the house during a thunderstorm, with no electricity and nothing else to do.

Having said that much...the character's were shallow, pretty much single females who make it out of the ghetto to become successful entreprenuers by using what they've got (you figure it out). For these women to be the "successful entrepreneurs" they constantly claim to be...they still live by the ghetto/hood mentality based on their juvenile actions.

As for the story itself...there was no storyline, this is until around chapter 7 or 8 (again i was bored with nothing to do, that was this books salvation, otherwise I would've given up at chapter 3). It was only around chapter 7 or 8 that the author finally decided what she was writing about. No real surprises...and this book fails to live up to it's title. No Sins & Secrets here...just trash, and that's exactly where this book is going!!!

Read this book if you must - but with a WARNING.

The front cover indicates it's an Essence Bestseller, I'm still trying to figure out how it achieved that.

I will NOT be waiting on the sequel...
