expose her side of her sordid past why would she killher side of her sordid past why would she kill father and then stand there with a smoking gun So with that premise of a ghost written book of secrets the story rolls with side plots involving her lawyer and his investigations into the past the shady underside of everyone involved with her case and her mysterious best friend the exotic dangerous Lonnie who was spicy and interesting my favorite character aside from the deliciously perfect asshole Jordan I dont know I cant say this book was as scandalous and intriguing as it is hyped up to beI dony know if its recommended good though I just wish certain areas the human traffic aspect and people Olivia Gatewood would have gotten detail Beautiful Dirty Rich by JD Mason held a lot of promise A powerful and rich black family with secrets betrayal heartache intrigue and all the trappings that draws me to this type of story I liked the premise of the book well enough but had problems with the executionDesi Green was convicted of murdering the wealthy Julian Gatewood There was never a uestion about why she killed him nor were there ever really any real justice delivered that fateful day nor thereafter People get railroaded by the courts everyday especially the poor which is unfortunate That may hold true but would this particular injustice have happened I don t know seems almost impossible with as much media coverage this case garnered I can t see some lawyer sitting at home watching this trial unfold not wanting to make a name for himself by taking Desi on as a client The agreement that was made between the parties involved had so many holes that I don t understand why once given the payday of a lifetime that a specific person fight didn t for another trial Trying not to give away spoilersAnother issue was the narration in place of the story just being written out There was so much summed up in one chapter through narration that it made me feel like I had been robbed of a novel Lonnie s involvement seemed cloak and dagger enough but what took place with her wouldn t have gone cold that easily It was written that she was an in demand journalist that wrote her own ticket with major magazines newspapers and had personal connections with the media Trust me her disappearance would ve caus.
