Letting Loose Reviews
Letting Loose was a okay story, but it was definitely slow in spots and I found myself speed reading and scanning several of the chapters.Drew may have been a good catch and handsome, but some of his ideas were antiquated. He was a poor communicator and he seem more focused on building his political career than his relationship.Amelia had a lot of baggage in her own life. She's starting over as a teacher in public school, after an embarrassing incident with a married man at the private school she taught at.I didn't feel the romance between Drew and Amelia, it seem more like she fit a imagine of the wife he needed to further his aspirations. His mother was meddlesome and he was just a little too much of a Mama's boy for my taste. I felt Whitney (Amelia's best friend) was more interesting than the main characters.It wasn't a boring read, but its not a book a would recommend purchasing new. You might be better off getting it from the library or a half priced book store. The cover was the most exciting part of this story, in my opinion. This is the first book I have read by Ms Skerrett and it will probably be my last.
In Skerret's newest work of African-American chick lit., Amelia Wilson needs a break from the reality of teaching high school English in Boston Public Schools and caring for/about two needy family members and a friend in crisis. The provocative opening plsces the reader squarely in the classroom of a new teacher still being hazed by her flippant freshmen and the faculty clique. Amelia feels incomplete without a man in her life until her room mates introduce her to Drew, and Amelia's reality changes drastically.This is a fun and funny beach read, at times compelling, that kept me coming back for more, and I'm not a chick lit fan. Amelia's character has a strong voice that rings true for me, in fact I could often hear a friend's voice in Amelia's thoughts--especially later in the book, as she worked to adapt to another culture in an idyllic tropical setting.As with the opening lines, the conclusion is satisfying and fulfilling. Take a break from those highbrow books and spend some time in Letting Loose.
I thought the first two books were good, but this one I could not put it down. I was really jealous, I wanted to be the character in this book. It was GREAT! Keep up the good work.Deirdre Rawls St.Aimie
Took a minute to get interested but turned out to be pretty good!
I liked the story line and the characters. A fast and enjoyable story.
