Jealousy started out really good then it became confusing and dragged. The grammar was confusing sometimes. The language would be used as if the author was confused about in what place she was in the story. One example was the soon to be bride being referred to as wife, often in the book, when she wasn't married yet. That was confusing because I thought maybe I'd missed something. The crazy cousin Ro's actions dragged on a little to much to where I just didn't care anymore about her. If the book was a bit cleaner (grammar), shorter and tighter ( more concise) it would've held my attention better. However, the plot is awesome and if it were to be edited better...wow what an awesome read in the making.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 159309180X, Paperback)

How much should beauty determine a person’s worth in society, and how far will one woman go to gain approval?

Rochelle Jackson is a woman born without, as she calls it, the “pretty gene.” She more closely resembles a man and harbors a forbidden secret. This mix of volatile emotion and the simmering resentment bred by years of rejection becomes the destructive force behind her scheme to dethrone Dakota North, Rochelle’s beautiful cousin and a prima donna in her own right.

When Rochelle lets loose with her vicious plan, it becomes an all-out war that will leave both parties changed forever. In the compelling tradition of E. Lynn Harris, Jealousy has an emotionally wrenching plot and characters dealing with tough issues, such as bisexuality and homosexual relationships. Jenkins-Sanders’s powerful novel questions our values and provides a fresh perspective on the fight for power and identity.
