So after seeing author La’Toya Makanjuola put up on her twitter about her book Assariyah: Money over Everything, I sent her message to get a copy to review. She sent the book promptly and just as quickly as it came; I finished it. I actually lazed in bed sick all afternoon and read this book; completely hooked on the storyline.
La’Toya Makanjuola takes us on a tale of her main protagonist, ‘Assariyah Jones’ who like the title is very much money over everything. Assriyah goes from having it all to doing whatever it takes to get it back to losing everything.
Makanjuola’s novel is fast-paced and jam packed with juicy scenes of a sexual nature. I have to say the scene with Tyler leaves… Ahmmmm… plenty food for thought. The novel has an excellent opening and kept me hooked from the start. Assariyah: Money over Everything has a strong message of money and the lengths people would go to get it.
I would have liked to learn more about Jasmina and Cameron; it’s like after the first chapter these characters kinda just fall away. I think if they were included in Assriyah’s story it would have brought more depth to the story. But overall I enjoyed reading it and would definitely read more of Makanjuola’s work.
