a novel by author Dawn Wright
Capital Consequences, book two in the Capital Trilogy, follows up where book one (Capital Encounters review) left off. The girls have done things and there was a shower of emotions that ran high. But in the same light truths were discovered about others and themselves. Can they recover in book 2? Let's dive into my second review by Dawn Wright.
Capital Consequences resumes the friendship of Summer, Emily, Amber and Brooke. They're endured a bit of strain during their first year as best mates, but there's so miuch more, considering what occurred... unintentionally. For those details, you have to read book 1.
So Emily is having trouble letting go. She's the one most betrayed, though it wasn't done in malice. Her issue is she has trouble walking away. She's hood, though she carries airs of angelic diplomacy. She can be so 2-faced, cutting those she supposedly likes like a knife just to feel justified. Will she feel some of her own sting?
Brooke wants the world. She has a strong business sense, looking to be the city's strongest wedding planner. She's well-off, living large and has more money than she can count. Sadly, she doesn't have two things that could make her life better than all the materials in her stash: A good husband and family. That's all she wants. It should be easy enough but she's conflicted after a special talk with a close associate/friend. Can she really have everything she wants without sacrifice? Can she be the one to work her way to the top and stay?
Summer seems to have it all. A decent job, an excellent beau (in Oliver) who showers her in a gorgeous home and gives her near everything she could ever want or need. As a matter of fact, she has it all! Everything her friends are working for, sleeping around for and dreaming of seems to fall Ito her lap. So why does she feel so undeserving?
Amber is a girl looking to change her life after causing severe collateral damage with her high-risk profession. When she mistakenly slept with someone's man, all hell broke loose. So she's now doing her best to change from her scandalous ways. She's the lowest on the livelihood totem pole, but she strives for more and does her best to carry her head high. Can she beat the odds, get out of the hood and find true love where she doesn't have to be paid for services rendered?
These women constantly remind me why I mostly kept guy friends and Friend Zones. Way too much drama, even on their good days! As with the first book, it's seems to mostly be about Summer, told in first person. The rest are from their third person POV's. It allows the reader to be inside their heads and know where they're coming from without primary focus. The back and forth was a bit daunting at times, but when you read it like you're watching a daytime soap show, it works 100% LOL No Lie!
The story is nicely written with each chapter carrying a sort of theme on what's to come and believe me, it was a lot! The way Wright wrote, I found myself salty, mad a few times, felt sympathetic- maybe even empathetic. Don't even get me started on the sexual encounters because the first one with Damani was fire!
So if you enjoy drama, friendships and tragedy sprinkled with a bit of erotica, this may be your series! Check out Capital Consequences, by Dawn Wright, while I move on to the next read. Cheers!
