Daisy Jones by Mack Mama ARC Review

37915702Goodreads Summary: DAISY MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND.

Gorgeous temptress, Daisy Jones has the power to send men to prison for sexual relations with a minor. She is the epitome of a gold digger and raised to go after rich men by a bitter mother. Mama Jones mad at her fate in life taught Daisy the art of manipulation and how to scheme on her prey. She didn’t warn Daisy about letting her heart get in the way of business, forcing her to fall for a southern rapper and the CEO of a multi-million dollar empire. The story begins in Atlanta, Georgia, traveling to New York City, and enters the notorious crew, the OBG s a gumbo of women hustlers, killers, and drug dealers, who have earned a reputation in the streets for being beyond terrorist. And they’re connected to Daisy Jones, all of them wanting to get their “Daisy” on.

*I received an ARC in return for an honest review!*

Release Date: May 1st 2018

My Thoughts: I was definitely out of my comfort zone with this book.  Daisy Jones by Mack Mama immediately slams you into the lives of its characters.  We follow 16 year old Daisy as she goes through a tough life of hustling and gold digging.  Right away with the language, I knew who these characters were.  They were all larger than life personalities, and I knew I was in for a wild ride.  Boy, was this book extreme in every possible way!  The stakes were always high, and every situation escalated insanely fast (unbelievably so).  Nearly every scene was overly explicit, and some were hard to read.  There was so much crazy drama that it was like not being able to look away from a car wreck.  I could not believe the situations described in this book, and some of them actually had my jaw on the floor with their extremeness.  In between each scene, there were a bunch of jerky transitions that took me out of it, and the writing style seemed a little elementary to me.  It felt like every moment was put in for shock factor, and there was very little build up to support these actions.  There were a large amount of colorful characters, but none of them were likable and I couldn’t bring myself to root for any of them.  With so much focus on the events of each scene, I felt that there was little time for much character development or depth.  While the overly dramatic events kept me reading, my lack of emotional connection to the characters ruined it for me.  If you want a fast, explicit, and extremely wild ride, this book is for you, but it just wasn’t my cup of tea.

  1. I will be reviewing this myself this next week on my blog actually! I was a bit umm shocked by this book in a way that actually was upsetting and unsettling for me, so it sounds like we had somewhat similar experiences in a way.
