In author Cynthia White s sequel to Queen, Always a Queen, readers find the protagonist Queen eight months pregnant and living in Hawaii Queen is seeking out professional help in the form of a therapist who s helping her to not only sort through her past failed relationships with Gauge, Marc, Carmen and Isaiah but her tumultuous relationship with her mother Hillary as well Although she was pampered royally by her father, Hershey Aaron, the neglect she felt from Hillary fueled many of Queen s poor decisions But before Queen can fully benefit from her therapy sessions Isaiah re enters her life.Isaiah has been running Queen s father s organization The Black Mafia and wants Queen by his side After giving birth to their daughter, Princess, Queen decides to return to St Louis with Isaiah and become his wife However Queen has a difficult time adjusting to life as a wife and mother especially with Isaiah spending so much time away handling business Can she avoid returning to her promiscuous ways especially after she starts to suspect Isaiah of being unfaithful Fidelity becomes even difficult for Queen with Carmen her ex bodyguard and lover still working for The Black Mafia.Queen tries desperately to keep her marriage in tact and avoid repeating the same mistakes from her sordid past or repeating the same trifling actions of her own mother But with a past so scandalous and violent that it attributed to the death of two lovers and both of her parents can Queen prove that she s no longer the misguided, spoiled little girl that she was before she ran off to Hawaii But with so many reminders of her past in St Louis as well as Isaiah s shady behavior the old Queen might be forced to make a re appearance.What did you like about the book Always a Queen worked well as a stand alone book and readers need not to read it predecessor to follow the storyline The therapy sessions helped tell the back story along with other well placed flashback scenes.What did you dislike about the book The storyline dragged throughout the middle of the book A lot of the middle portions could have been cut out especially when Queen finds proof of Isaiah s infidelity and does nothing with it except for using it as an excuse to run to Carmen for comfort.What could the author do to improve the book Cynthia White did an excellent job improving upon Queen s hasty decision making which had her jumping in and out of multiple beds in book one However Queen s new rationale of thinking and the shift away from promiscuity hindered the storyline in book two Hopefully in the upcoming third installment Queen will focus on re establishing control of her father s organization which should keep the plot flowing effortlessly. I don t think this book was as good as the first book Queen was way better.
