Friend or Foe 4 Out of 5 Stars By OOSA Online Book Club "O.O.S.A. Gets It Read!"

The divas of Brick City , Newark, Sasha, Tatum, Kim and Nelli are as thick as thieves. Beautiful, sassy and stylish, these lovely ladies can go toe to toe with the best of the elite and get any man their hearts' desire. Friendships and relationships are tested when a slew of uneventful activities come into play that may cause their lives to change forever.

"Thicker Than Water" is very entertaining and will have you on the edge of your seat. The drama was unbelievable and kept me glued to the very end. I was really excited when I read one of the characters with the same name as mine. The ending left me hanging and wanting more, but at the same time thrilled that there will be a part II. Ms. Allen has definitely got the literary game on lock.

4.5 out of 5 books Reviewed by Tazzyt2bossye for Urban-Reviews.com

Meet four friends with diverse lifestyles, personalities, and goals in life. They accept the good, the bad, and the ugly to stand together against all odds. Kim is the vocal one of the four with her ghetto mentality, yet despite the strength she exudes, she has a weakness for a married man. Neli is the weakest link and her insecurities play a major role as she secretly covets the possession of one of the quartet's most precious possessions. Sasha loves her friends as much as the love of her life, Chauncey, who seems to love the drug game more than her. While Tatum is the authentic diva with looks, luxury, confidence, and style, she's missing the love of a good man.
Tatum effortlessly steals the show with her encounter with the unforgettable Respect. Respect is a fascinating character that lures you in with his poetic quips and his sexy dialect; let's not even begin to mention his looks, power, attitude or prowess in sharing his love.
Thicker Than Water is an energetic read focusing on the relationships between four friends and the many ventures that they dare to encounter. Love, life, romance, jealousy, rivalry, deception, betrayal, and loyalty all flourish as the story line expands. This is my first Takerra Allen read, and I highly commend her on taking an age old plot and portraying it in an impressive and superbly written novel. Ms. Allen incorporates suspense and a tad of mystery to make this an even more pleasurable and intriguing tale. With better editing to correct the numerous errors, both spelling and grammatical, I have high hopes for the conclusion of this story line and anxiously await the sequel! Kudos Takerra...Kudos!
