ABOUT THE BOOK:
Sex, stalking, scandal and scintillating twists and turns are waiting for you behind the cover of Closure or Ammo!
Lana and Val are best friends who both have bad luck with men, until they each meet someone. For Lana, it's her hot new boss, Leo. When Leo suddenly ends the affair, Lana plays a dangerous game of cat and mouse to find out why. For single mother Val, she meets sexy detective, Travis, after he arrests her baby's daddy. As their budding relationship undergoes a few surprises, Val must decide whether to stand by her friend or follow the law. Will Lana's actions pit friend against friend or will their relationship withstand the test?
I ended up liking this much more than I thought I would. Dotson does a wonderful job of demonstrating how opposites attract in these two friends. These two women could not be more different. Yet, very slowly so that the reader never sees it coming, their lives end up going in directions that you couldn't even imagine. Dotson also provides great examples of healthy vs unhealthy relationships and how these relationships deeply effect the individuals involved. Her two main characters are people have more secrets than what meets the eye.
The amount of sexual content in the book was great and added to the plot/story itself. It really made the book have a feminist feel in the way that it broke the gendered stereotype that women are not sexual beings. These two women, Val and Lana, have clearly embraced their sexuality in a way that should empower others. This feminist feel continues through the characters themselves as the plot progresses. Both women are strong, independent women who work long hours in order to do what is necessary to improve their lives for themselves and, in the case of Val, for her son. They both take pride in their work.
