Yancey Harrington Braxton is back, and she's trying to reclaim
her throne as music's top diva. But the road getting back to
the top is getting harder than she imagined. Yancey has been
touring in off Broadway plays across the country to keep up
with her lavish lifestyle. Yancey comes up with a plan to star
in her own reality show to become the celebrity that she once
was. But some long ago secrets that come to light may derail
her plans. Meanwhile, Yancey's mother Ava Middlebrooks is out
of prison and ready to make her own comeback. She doesn't care
whose toes that she needs to step on in order to do it---even
if it includes her own daughter. Ava and Yancey both have some
competition in the diva department when a hot new music
sensation named Madison B. steps on to the scene.
Mama Dearest is an entertaining novel by E. Lynn
Harris. Harris brought back the beloved characters of Yancey
and Ava. He also did a good job of introducing Madison in this
book. Ava's actions towards Yancey are so despicable in this
book that you'll forget that she's actually Yancey's
biological mother. The Yancey in this book is forced to be
extremely humble as she tries to revive her career. The
inclusion of Madison in this story provided a unique breath of
fresh air to this book. But the ending of the novel seemed
very rushed, vague, and thrown together, leaving you with more
questions that unfortunately will never be answered. Mama
Dearest is full of the all of the humor and drama that E.
Lynn Harris is known for.

Dante Garret has taken
over his family business after the death of his father and
grandfather. A Bronx repairman, Dante runs into a ghetto vixen
that changes his professional and personal life. When he's
seduced by an older client named Ms. Thomas and then falls for
Stacy, the niece of another client, the drama begins. But
little does Dante know that his lust for Stacy will gradually
ruin his life. During a visit to Atlanta, Stacy's past becomes
Dante's future and almost causes his death. After spending ten
weeks at the Atlanta medical center, he meets another
character named Ophelia who thinks he's an Adonis; once again
his life changes and more drama ensues.
It was always my intention to read one of Mr. Aaron's
works. I've heard so much about his smoking sex scenes, which
this book lacked. It also lacked emotion and flow. I didn't
care for any of the characters, and the story seemed to be all
over the place. The twists were predictable and I was very
annoyed. While reading Burning Desire, I kept wondering
where the story was. As the book came to a close, I was
frustrated in an ending that left too many loose ends.
