Publisher's Summary

Essence best-selling authors Kiki Swinson and Noire have attracted huge audiences for their sexy, anything-goes fiction. Lifestyles of the Rich and Shameless features a novella from each author. Swinson’s electric “Shamelessly Rich” showcases a spoiled bad girl facing a life-changing choice. And in Noire’s “Puttin’ Shame in the Game,” three gorgeous ladies set their sights on a wealthy cop.

Rich and Shameless Indeed

This is a 2 story audiobook the first story was simply ridiculous. I was not impressed and really I didn't think that a character could be so naive when it came to planning to get money and setting up someone she loved to be kidnapped. WOW the story just sounded unbelievable.
The second story was very well set up i still want to know who was the first chick he was going to pick before all the mayhem happened and each person was found out and their true motives were found out. It's funny how some people live their lives playing a role just to get what they want. Although I was disappointed about the happy ending because it was just so cliche I am glad true happiness was found. The performance was phenominal both narrators did an excellent job in their prospective roles. I have read better books but would refer this to people who like to understand peoples ways and how people aren't the people who they say they are.

Not a Shameless Read

Kiki Swinson's novella was a really good read. The second novella, is not what I expected from Noire but I enjoyed the read. Superb and definatly a great read and worth the credit/purchase.

So unrealistic

I struggled with the book. the story line is so fake, it reads like a white person trying to be black.

Not as Great as Expected.

The first story was ok but the second story seemed to just drag on and wasn't very interesting. I don't have a lot to say because the stories weren't very memorable to rave worthy

Great

I really liked these books and would recommend them. I wish they both were movies or TV shows. They had a great storylines and sexual storylines. Book one was plain crazy and she was stupid. Book two was funny, sad and crazy. Both narrators were good.

Shameless

Ok so the first could have been better than it was. Megan was just flat out dumb. like how you do your family in for a man who don't give a dam about you, and only using you for your money. Now the second book I really did enjoy. the one woman he didn't trust is the one that was really for him. all the other women only wanted his money

All I Can Say. ....

Wow!!!! Both stories are off the chain!!!! Rich girl is well, RICH! Noble...Noble..
Noble. ..He's an overall good guy!!! What a collaboration. Both main characters want to please their lovers. However, there is an expense for love.

For listeners who like to learn the hard way!!!!

This was a very good listen to be a collaboration story. Usually a strong writer is paired with a new writer or a writer who's trying to get their foot in the door but these were 2 very good stories from 2 good writers..... It was sad that the Rich girl learned a life lessin literally but that story is real and I can definitely relate..... The 2nd story is to open aperson's eyes to what is really real and also to know that things are not what they always seem... This is a must listen.
