Book Review - Drama With a Capital D by Denise Coleman

When Drama Knocks, Are You Gonna Answer? Lonnie, a strong, independent, career-minded sista isn't one for drama or unnecessary bull. In fact, she's not even sure if having a man in her life is worth the trouble it can cause. However, when she meets John, everything changes, and her comfortable life as a single career woman goes flying out the window. She's in love, and things couldn't be better. Then all hell breaks loose. The man who seemed like her dream come true soon becomes the nightmare she can't wake up from. John's sex-capades with the hood rat of the month soon turn from casual to serious, and Lonnie kicks him to the curb to refocus on herself and her career. But drama rears its ugly head yet again when it shows up at her job. Lonnie goes from the put-together woman in charge to a petty, dramatic diva, and soon, she doesn't recognize herself. Will she be able to pull it together before she loses everything, or has she been marked with the curse of Drama With a Capital D?

From Goodreads

Cover Inspection:
The woman on the cover is very pretty, but she looks pretty pissed off at the world.  She looks like she has had enough and doesn't want anyone to mess with her.

First Thoughts:
Wow, this book starts right out with the drama.  Lonnie's life is being turned upside down.

My Review:
After seeing the great reviews on this book, I decided to buy it.  I don't remember exactly how I came upon this book, but it sounded good.   

I wondered when I started reading what kind of drama Lonnie would be going through.  I have been reading a lot of relationship drama books and wondered if this one would be any different.  I found out after reading it that it sure was different!

This book is told from Lonnie's point of view.  She finds out that Johnny is cheating on her.  He said it just happened at a time when they weren't as close.  So instead of talking it over and telling her his feelings, he just goes out and finds another woman to satisfy him.   They were even supposed to get married too.  After all this then other drama happens in her life, including drama at her job.   Drama just seems to follow her around. 

I loved this book and it kept me entertained.  This is a book that I couldn't put down!  I give this book 5/5 diamonds and I highly recommend others to buy this book!  I look forward to reading more books by Denise Coleman!
