The book was great until the ending and then it sort of rushed through. I'd like to know what happened with Kavon and Kia's relationship, and how it ended, if it ended or did Kia have more tricks up her sleeve. Maybe some info about Kavon's family could be added and see if Kia can use them to get Kavon back. Mrs. "Big" handled her revenge through the sweet touch of success but I'd like to know if she and Carter worked it out. Mrs. Bigs mom...well she's got issues and she's a whole a book of her own.

From Gold Digger to Housewife March 7 2007
By Phyllis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Maryann Reid's newest offering, Mrs. Big introduces readers to Loletta Hightower. She is all about designer clothes, trips to the spa and lavish vacations. She is a receptionist for a luxury car dealer. She is living in an expensive apartment with her mother (Mrs. Hightower). She meets rich men and they support her for a few months at a time. She is tired of the temporary support and is ready to walk down the aisle. Loletta is looking for a husband, but not just any man. Her ideal man has lots of money and is willing to spend it on her and her mother.

Loletta sees a former classmate, Kavon "Big" Jackson at the dealership where she works. She talks to him at the dealership and soon after their meeting they become a couple. They are engaged and married after their meeting. Kavon has just signed a new NBA contract with another team so he has plenty of money to spend. Loletta gets much more than she ever bargained for.

Mrs. Big is a very entertaining novel. This book is filled with drama and held my attention to the very end. This read was well-written and it seemed as though I knew the characters. There were times where I found myself yelling about the things the characters were doing. I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to others. Although this is my first time reading Ms. Reid's work, it will definitely not be my last.

It had to many error's Nov. 10 2006
By C. Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was okay. But I caught a lot of stuff that didn't make sense. Loletta age changed a few times in the book as well as her name. Also Kavon age changed too. A lot of stuff in this book just didn't make sense. I mean It was a okay read but this book was not well put together or even prof-read before published. I would pass on the next book that come from this publication company.

AN ENTERTAINING READ April 8 2011
By loverofALLshoes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
MRS. BIG WAS INFATUATED WITH LIVING A LAVISH LIFE, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. SHE HAD A THING FOR MONEY AND MEN WITH MONEY, THAT OF WHICH SHE WAS TAUGHT BY HER MOTHER. IT WAS AN ENTERTAINING READ FOR THE MOST PART. SOME PARTS OF THE BOOKS HAD MY MOUTH HITTING THE FLOOR, SOME LEFT ME WONDERING. OVERALL, I'D RECOMMEND IT TO A FRIEND.
Pretty good but a little too raw for me at times March 3 2010
By brittneycol6 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book tackled a very touchy subject of gold-digging. I liked the book and I like the story it was trying to tell. There are some unclear information and situations in the book but you can still understand the story. I felt the raw edge missed the mark and was seen as unnecessary and vulgar at times. Also didn't care for the ending. But all in all a pretty good read.

(RAW Rating: 4.5) - Everything That Glitters Ain't Gold Feb. 9 2007
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Loletta Hightower is mesmerized by the good life. She wants it all: lavish vacation, enormous bling-bling, and an extravagant home. Rather than work for it, she believes she is destined to marry well. After spending her youth chasing rappers and R &B singers, in adulthood, she sets her sights on professional athletes. Urged by her mother to marry a rich man and dissuaded by her father, who only wants Loletta to be the best she can be, Loletta begins a life-affirming journey complete with twists, turns, and misery.

Loletta believes her ship has come in when she becomes the wife of Kavon "Big" Jackson, her college classmate, virtually overnight. Before she can settle in her role as the wife of a major NBA player, Kavon reveals his true self. Additionally, there is one woman that will stop at nothing to make Kavon her own.

MRS. BIG reveals a seedier side of women chasing men with money. Maryann Reid weaves a tale of how the practice of conning and scheming to obtain material possessions destroys a woman's self-respect and self-esteem. Unlike many other novels based on the same premise, Reid's tale is cautionary. Early in the novel, many readers may not particularly care for Loletta because of her gold-digging ways. However, by the end you will find yourself applauding and rooting for her as she finds her own way in the world.
