This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Jun 24, Elaine rated it it was ok. I read this in a day and a half, only because I wanted to get through it, and thought it would get better.
The book came across like a stereotypical ‘black’ movie. There was a lot if neck rolls, rolling of the eyes, threats of beating someone’s ass, chiles and bitches.
The book needs heavy editing, many grammatical mistakes. Some scenes were just too long. If you watched Evelyn on BBWs, consider yourself I read this in a day and a half, only because I wanted to get through it, and thought it would get better.

Can Eve’s organization help solve all of the wives problems or is this organization a huge mistake? Evelyn Lozada’s book The Inner Circle was a fast pace and easy read but also very predictable. You could really tell that ebelyn story was based on her personal inner circles exploits. If your a fan evekyn the show Basketball Wives you can place a face with each character.
This in itself is not the problem the real problem was the strategic product placement through out the story and all of Evelyn’s tag lines that she made sure the main character recited over and over again I mean come on how many times can you say some one is’ a non M’f Factor, I was like if I read that one more time I am going to scream.
I also felt that Evelyn bragged on herself through the main character a lot. Even thought this book is suppose to be the first book in a series I just can not see myself picking up the next installment it was just to predictable for me.
Read this novel if Read this novel if you like fast pace easy to figure out stories. Jul 06, Natasha rated it really liked it. I was skeptical at first, not sure if I liked the narrator’s voice curcle it grew on me and I enjoyed her slight variations to sound different for other characters.
If you like drama and scandal, there’s enough here to keep you engulfed. I’ll definitely be reading or listening to the following books to come in the series. View all 3 comments. Jul 15, Samantha March rated it really liked it. I was curious to get the inside scoop on the ladies with these men we see on TV. They do not come across attractive in the non-physical sense at least in any way. Eve is insistent on keeping her independence, which means sticking with her job as a sports agent and not letting her just be Mrs.
Wives of famous athletes will band together to protect each other, should their men ever try to leave them innner cut off their swanky lifestyle they have grown accustomed to.
Overall, I really did enjoy Inner Circle. I liked the behind the scenes look, even if it did make me a bit scared of athletes now. I thought the writing was good, a little slow and repetitive at times, but I thought it was juicy enough to make me okay with those lows.
But the ending really had me on my toes, and I sped through the last few chapters at lightning speed.
I loved the cliff-hanger ending! It made me definitely interested in reading the second book.
If you are a sports fan or know Lozada from reality TV, I think this one should be on your list. Lozadaa forward to this series! This book is so self serving I can’t even, say much more. Please don’t write another one. Aug 08, Brililah rated it did not like it. If Evelyn had wrote this book before her fame off the reality show nobody would be so into this new series of books to come this book was very poorly written to me it was not good until the last two chapters throughout the book it was way to easy for me to predict and be correct about everything was going to happen I would not recommend this book or read the next book in the series.
Plot is full of twists and surprises and the end completely leaves you hanging! I can’t wait for the next one to come out! This is a summer must read for sure. Jan innrr, Karen rated it liked it. The song gucci, gucci kept coming to mind. Dec 01, Monique rated it it was ok Shelves: Yeah I got to finish a book in a day!! Too good to be true but a lazy clean-up Sunday with football in the background, Thanksgiving leftovers still available to eliminate dinner and a read that went by oh so fast I am loving how December starts: Basically the book centers around Eve-one of those jealousy inducing beauties with an amazing figure that is sought after by many before succumbing to the life she didn’t want as an athlete’s wife and her “friends” as they fall victim to the drama and heartache that also unwillingly comes with the territory of marrying into the spotlight As I said I love reality TV so the description of clothes, restaurants, drinks and lavish lifestyle injer expected as was the drama which had some little unexpected twists but I just couldn’t get with the idea of a Wives Association to help a sister out if their man left them high and dry.
I kinda found the whole idea preposterous that you think you would form a sisterhood with women to protect you from an act you chose.
I thought it silly and for that it lost a star sorry Evelyn I do like you on the show and it also lost a star for the overuse of the phrase eevlyn muthafucking factor” okay we get it when you used it was hot and trademarked and even used by me but enough its just too much in print right? And she used it like four times. Sep 17, Lauren Ummel added it. The writing was elementary and had a lot of hy.
It was also repetitive with sayings and trying to be clever. I felt like Evelyn was bragging a little bit through the main character about all that she has, and using her own sayings and merchandise in the book was no coincidence.
However, the story was intriguing and it was fun to try and figure out which characters in the book were the ones in real life and what was true and what wasn’t. I read it in one day and will only read the next one The writing was elementary and had a lot of mistakes.
I read it in knner day and will only read the next one because I wanna know what happens which I guess is the what she wants! Jul 29, Roxana rated it really liked it. I initially thought when I grabbed this book off the shelf that it was a biographical book but when I realized it was a novel I was iffy about liking it. It actually turned out to be a decent book and the main character reminded me so much of Evelyn that I kept hearing her voice as I read.
I was just a little irked by lozzada ending. I hate to be continued. Overall its a book worth trying.
