New York Times bestselling author Mary B. Morrison delivers an explosive second novel about the unforgettable Crystal women, a family battling to stay together as desire, deception, and ever-elusive happiness threaten to tear them apart . . .

Too much is never, ever enough for Alexis Crystal. She's playing a dangerous game, but she's finally close to getting 24/7 sizzling satisfaction. With a ring on her finger from James Wilcox and the woman she loves firmly between her sheets, no one can match Alexis when it comes to scheming. And her duplicity just makes her better at helping her siblings get revenge on the lovers who are doing them wrong. . .

Devereaux Crystal just about has it all. Producer of TV's hottest new reality show, she's engaged to entrepreneur Phoenix and will do anything for their adorable two-year-old, Nya. She and Phoenix have always set it off in the bedroom, but lately Devereaux is starting to question whether Phoenix will ever make his own success, much less set a wedding date. Soon, his seductive excuses and tantalizing evasion finally lead her to an unthinkable truth: Ebony, the fiery star of Devereaux's series, is keeping Phoenix primed, hot, and at her beck and call. But Devereaux is holding all the cards--and she plans to use them to exact the sweetest revenge. . . 

With the help of her sisters, Devereaux sets out to blow up Phoenix's house of lies. But the explosion ignites its own chain of devastating consequences. Because no one should mess with the Crystal women without expecting some fierce payback. . .

My Review

Mary HoneyB Morrison is the Queen B when it comes to writing a drama filled, page turning novel with more than three main characters. I don't know many authors that can do that without confusing the hell out of me. It takes talent and skills to do this and Mary HoneyB Morrison does it well.

Just Can't Let Go is book two in The Crystal Series and it picks up with more drama among Blake and her daughters and their significant others and a few other folks. They're just one big reality show. Alexis makes and announcement to her entire family, including the father she just met a few months ago, her boyfriend and also her lady, that's when things begin to go from sugar to shit. Just MESSY! Messy indeed. But, I loved every bit of the mess that each character went through. The only one in the book that didn't have any problems was Blake's three-month old Yorkshire terrier, KingMaxB.

The story line flowed well. Even though the characters has flaws, and they're dealing with so much hurt and heartache, they weren't all bad either. During times of trouble the the sisters were there for each other. Because of how well written the book was I gave this book five stars and a fist bump.

The book will be available nationwide August 1, 2016. You can pre-order your copy by clicking the Amazon link below.


Note: I received a copy of the book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
