Have you ever started reading a book and felt instantly shocked? Kinda like you’re channel surfing and accidentally run across a naked person on tv and you look around like, My bad! Did anyone see me? This is how this book started for me. I was like, Dayuuummm! Whaaaattt? Y’all I was shook! Let’s just say, the book starts off with a bang.
Now Anonymous Acts is a story about Monica. She’s in her mid thirties, married for fourteen years and is a business woman with her own nail polish company. But of course all is not what it appears to be. While she’s had great professional success, her personal life is basically in shambles. Her husband and college sweetheart has been blatantly cheating on her and has been downright disrespectful. He mistress was his “assistant” and since he doesn’t even have a job anymore, he’s basically living off of Monica (Lawwwd!!). Just a mess!!
So here is Monica, she’s professionally successful but her personal life is trash. And in dealing with her personal life issues she develops a condition most of encounter when when we’ve got crap to deal with: Insomnia. She’s lonely and can’t sleep.
I don’t know about y’all, but when I can’t sleep I usually read a book, take a shower or surf the net. Well Monica here joined a chat group for folks like her who can’t sleep. Clearly her ish was serious!! And while there she meets a guy, with who she keeps an anonymous but platonic relationship.
Now since I don’t like ANY spoilers, I’ll just share that this book is juicy!! And if you’re a CJC fan, you already know her forte is Black Romance. But she has a couple of books that are suspense/mystery novels. This is one of them! When I first got into the novel I thought it was another romance story. I’ll be real, I don’t read the descriptions of CJC books! I already know I’m gonna love it, so whhhy would I bother with reading a synopsis? No need girl. I’m reading it. But soon the story started take a bunch of twists and turns. A lot of crazy things start to happen to our girl Monica. From a break into her home, to murder and a whole bunch more, its clear that Monica, you in danger girl!! (in my Whoppi voice).
Overall, the book is a page turner. Its mysterious, very sexy, confusing and addicting. And while I never saw anything coming, it wasn’t because it was random, it was because the story was so well built that you have to read the whole thing to get what was happening! Its a Black Suspense novel that I thoroughly enjoyed!! And if you are into these types of books, you can read about some of the characters that reappear in this book in her previous suspense novel series Catch Me If You Can.
So go ahead a grab this one if you’re looking to switch up your reading list!!
