Review: Fly Betty by Treasure Blue

Title: Fly Betty

Author: Treasure Blue

Pub date: Feb. 5, 2013

Publisher: Cash Money Content

Source: Library

 Summary from Amazon:

IN THE MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR A YEAR ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY THERE IS a secret society of women that few are privy to. All of these women are vying for one thing – an opportunity to live a luxurious, lavish lifestyle by snagging a rich and famous singer, rapper or athlete.

Betty Blaise, or Fly Betty to those who truly know her, was not in it to be a wife or even the baby momma of a wealthy public figure – she had her sights set higher, much higher. While most of these women use sex as their weapon of choice, Betty, a senior majoring in psychology, has developed skills she learned from her mother’s diaries that prove much more powerful.

Up until now Betty has lived her life according to her own strict rules and standards, refusing to compromise for anyone, even if it potentially meant shielding herself from true love. But when she encounters a man that she would never have anticipated falling for in a million years, the very tools she used so effectively against men begin to turn against her – and deadly consequences are sure to follow.

My review/thoughts:

This was my first Treasure Blue book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Betty is a psychology major who uses her mother's rules and her brains to get what she wants. Betty is always two steps head. Her mom's number one rule is to never fall in love. Does she breaks this rule? Well, you have to read the book for the answer. This story was full of drama and plot twists that I did not see coming. This book is over 400 pages but I finished it in 5 hours. This is a fabulous read. If you are in the mood for an urban lit page turner that sucks you in, this book is for you.
