As the title suggests, there is a lot of drama. The story centers around a young woman named Chass and the two men who she ends up being involved in the middle of - her wealthy workaholic boyfriend named El and an even wealthier man named Shane who is balancing the line between going legit and staying in the streets.
To be honest, I've never been a big fan of urban/street fiction as I always felt that, by its very nature, it limited itself in regards to the audience it attracts. As a writer I want my work to appeal to as many people as possible and, when every other sentence is peppered with "n**ga this" and "motherf**ker that" it takes something for me. But, I understand that some people are okay with that and that's cool; I am not one to judge one's taste.
Having said that, Drama...Another Man's Girl has it's moments. The erotic/hotness factor is through the roof when it comes to chapters dealing with sex. There were some twists that I didn't see coming that added to the overall satisfaction of the book, especially dealing with Chass' best friend and the teaser for the sequel more than made up for any shortcomings that I felt the book had.
Character wise, I found it hard to relate to them most of the time which kind of made me not care for them very much. This may not be a problem for some people but, for me, that was an issue of mine. Some of the things that the characters did seemed kind of unbelievable to me but that's a small grievance of mine. It took me a while to REALLY get into it; at first I had to more or less force myself to read it but, as the story progressed, I started reading faster as I did want to know what was going to happen.
Overall, I'm not disappointed in the book but I'm not overly blown away by it. I feel that it's very solid and I'm looking forward to reading the sequel because this book ends with a SERIOUS cliffhanger. Mrs. Lyttle is a very talented writer and those talents will only continue to flourish as she goes on.
3 out of 5 stars.
