I’ve read several books by Electa Rome Parks and was thrilled when I finally got to meet her at the Black Authors and Readers Rock Weekend in Bowie, Maryland back in October 2014. Of course, I couldn’t resist having her sign all of my books and taking a few photos.
Anyway, in this sequel to Diary of a Stalker, Electa brings to light Pilar’s past which gives the readers a good insight into why Pilar is such a nut case. Pilar’s obsession with Xavier Preston, a celebrated author, knows no bounds and extends to any and everyone he loves. This time, his best friend Dre’ gets suckered into Pilar’s plan to teach Xavier a lesson after she resurfaces as Milan. Although she has a new look after undergoing plastic surgery, she’s still plagued by nightmares, destructive behaviors, and psychotic episodes.
There were parts of this book that was very scary and downright mean. Electa did an excellent job at crafting the characters and the dialogue was spot on. Here are a few of my favorite lines:
“I knew Xavier was a male whore, but I thought Miss My-Shit-Don’t-Stink was decent. She absolutely was not going to have her cake and eat it, too. Not on my watch. If I couldn’t have him, why should she?”
Well, crazy is, what crazy does! So, the question is whether or not Xavier has truly learned his lesson? Somehow, I feel we haven’t seen the last of Pilar!
