No matter how hard he works at his job at UPS, it is never enough to take care of himself and his long-term girlfriend. After continuous pressure from his older cousin, Ching, Omari finally traded in busting his ass for working under Ching hustling three major blocks on the Westside. All is good as Omari juggles work and the drug game. That is, until Ching involves him in the murder of, who ends up being, the Governor’s nephew. As he dodges homicide detectives, Omari is also trying to dodge getting caught between two loves. He’s been committed to Aeysha for seven years, but is falling each day for Simone, an older more established woman who is at his every beck and call. After years of playing the side chick, Simone finally finds love that she thinks is all her own. Just as she settles into loving Omari, she finds out about Aeysha and her desperate mind begins to plot on how to finally win her man. Simone’s best friend, Tammy, thinks Simone is crazy as she herself is running from an obsessed ex-boyfriend who is persistent in trying to kill her. Tammy lives in hiding for months as she asks herself this burning question; how can a man love a woman with the same hands that he is willing to kill her with? As the murder investigation leads to arrests, the walls come down on these lovers. Murder, sex, and indictments lead to unforeseen tragedy and unexpected love.

    If you don't mind terrible grammar; extremely unrealistic scenarios on every page; and characters who are illogical, one dimensional, and cruel for no real reason, this is the book for you :) Not my cup of tea.

I went through so many emotions while reading this book (happy, sad, angry....) This was a superior read, and high quality ratings were in order. I am certain that the sequel will be top-notched as well. The characters although twisted were realistic. Simone made me want to jump onto the pages of the book and shake her. Always the underdog, she was so exploited and desperate. I loved Omari from the beginning, but like any man he had great flaws, which made me want to cut it off! Literally!! Poor Aeysha she was so depressed, and had lost hope that she would ever both worthy. Just when she thought she had everything lined up, the walls came crashing down around her. Tammy was so beautiful, but when it came to the men in her life, she just couldn't get it right. I don't know who was more certifiable in this book Simone or Jimmy. Scratch that Simone had Jimmy beat by a long shot. I never trusted Ching and he really, really showed his behind just like I thought he would. This book was a 10 star read, and could easily be turned in a bestselling film. This was a group read in one of my book clubs, but it turned out to be so good, that I plan on reading the rest of Jessica Watkins work. Splendid job and Spectacular story!!!

    The book was actually good. I been had this book and finally gotten around to reading it. One thing for sure. That Simone girl was annoying asf. She worse then the girl from Murderville. Like damn man. Psychopath. And Omari can't see how she is either. He's just running up in her with no care in the world. But what's funny is even though his girl got killed (Simone doing) he still don't want her Ass. I cannot wait until I start on part 2 and cop 3 and 4.

I was shaking my head most of the time. Always saying REALLY? What gets me is Omari own cousin Ching thinking he snitch on him just because hes not about the drug life. Someone probably snitch on him some one in his own camp or someone probably seen him picked the boy up. I wonder if he will get someone to do something to Omari. I alre Spoilers.. Just... A few.

And I cannot wait until he finds out that it was that crazy ahh Simone who murder her and killed Tammi that was wrong of her. I felt like Tami should've did what she did with Omari. He wasn't Simone man. The kid that she pay off needs to tell what happens cause he loved her so much he did anything for that crazy hoe smh messed his young life up for a psychopath like dang boy tf.. I can't wait to read the other parts of the series...

    **3.5 stars** The plot held my interest from the first page. I would have given 4 stars for better editing: Too many misspelled words, one of the character's last name changed throughout the book--Ayesha's last name went from Walker to Richardson (and no, she didn't get married!), and grammatical errors.

    Wow! I am angry with Simone. Crazy turn of events for this story with a very shocking ending! Too many typos. It could have received a good editing but the storylines were great! Could have been a four star book but the typos were a but much.

    I enjoyed this book, I liked the story line and the plot. The characters needed more personality development and the dialogue between characters was too simplistic. I expected the book to complete to story line of each character but that was not the case. Overall it was still an enjoyable and quick read.

    Whew, Lawd!! I loved this book. Before I was halfway through, I recommended it to a few friends who like this genre. It was NON-STOP drama. I didn't get bored at all. Starting Part 2 as soon as I post this to amazon! Great job Ms./Mrs. Watkins!

    Pure soap opera as we follow several characters in Chicago and their messed-up, interconnecting lives. Aeysha is a woman in a bad place in her life. She's laid off and can't find work, she's told she can't have children, her boyfriend is a whore, she's lost confidence in herself.

Aeysha was the one character I was rooting for to get her life back together. (view spoiler)[Sadly it doesn't work out as author Jessica Watkins genuinely shocks me by killing off the one likable protagonist in her story. (hide spoiler)] Omari is the aforementioned whore boyfriend. If a female character is introduced, Omari has either done her, is going to do her, or wants to do her. He seems to think he's God's gift to women. The problem is all the other women in this book go along with his assumption. Simone projects to the world that she is a pretty put-together woman with a nice house, a nice job, and nice money. What we the reader see is Simone checking her brain at the door as she channels her inner Glenn Close/Fatal Attraction goddess. The reason I give this book extra points is for the twist at the end that completes Simone's evolution from Crazy Bitch to Super Villain. Tammy is the least important person in the story. Tammy is filler.

    Too much drama Lawd I hate Simone I swear how can you be so desperate to have a man by killing off his girl. I blame Omari for everything that's happened to Ayesha.

But the reviews were pouring in, one 5-Star review after another so I decided to one click it for 99cents and see what Secrets of a Side Bitch was all about. I finished this book a long time ago, but I've been hesitant about leaving a review because I've seen some other readers trolling reviewers who didn't like the book and I don't like bickering with "passionate fans" over my opinion. But my fellow Divas told me to "grow a set and write the damn review!" So here it is. I should have figured that the story was going to jump all over the place because the summary on Amazon is all over the place. There were a lot of characters and story lines in this book. Ms. Jessica could have written 2 or 3 different books with the number of people in this story. I'm not talking about secondary characters or friends of friends either...I'm talking about main characters. The problem with having so many characters is that it makes it impossible to pick one or two to be completely invested in. However, none of the characters, from Omari to Simone, had any good qualities that made me want to be invested in them. Omari and the other men make it hard to even care because they are completely disrespectful of women and obsessed with getting laid by any and everything. For a minute, I thought that Jessica Watkins was a pen name for a man. Actually, I still do. The way the men treated women in this book was so horrible that it's hard to believe that a woman wrote it. The way the women are portrayed also lead me to that conclusion. They had no respect for themselves, low self-esteem, and hardly any respect for other women, which is typically how men see women. As for the story itself, it's very predictable. Even the supposed twists can be seen coming from a mile away. The language of the book is a complete turn off. I'm no stick in the mud and I cuss like my daddy, but this was off the charts. One of the staples of the urban fiction genre is the hard-hitting street language, but this was over the top. It almost seemed like the author didn't want to challenge herself (himself???) to think of an alternate term instead of the N-word or a curse word which would have made this an easier read. Add the colorful language to an already predictable plot, and lackadaisical editing, I can't say that this was a 5 Star read...FOR ME. I felt no connection or interest in any of the main characters, the ending left me feeling like "finally, I'm done" instead of "Oooh, there's a part 2 coming!" and the way it kept jumping all over the place all influenced my rating.

It got such good reviews and seemed like it could be an easy read to pass the time. The book is super stereotypical when it comes to urban or street culture, and there is not one strong female character in the whole book. It is also a little smutty...a lot smutty. One of the main characters, Simone, is so crazy and trifling that it becomes interesting. That's the thing about this book, it's like watching Jerry Springer, you know it's trash tv, but something about it will occasionally make you watch an episode or two. You won't tune in every day to watch Jerry Springer, but once in a while you just get caught up in the train wreck and can't look away...that's this book. I can see myself reading the next book in this series if I was between books and looking for a mindless read.

    The fact that this book had a four and half rating and over 2,200 reviews on Amazon made me want to read it (not to mention it was part of Kindle Unlimited). I enjoy urban fiction when I'm looking for a quick page-turner to read. And guess what? I wasn't disappointed! It fulfilled all my needs: quick read, drama filled with petty horrible people and bad decision after bad decisions. Yup, I had fun.
