Omar Tyree, New York Times and Blackboard bestselling author and winner of the 2001 NAACP Image Award for literary fiction, delivers a powerful story of two childhood friends lured into the sex, drugs, money, and madness of R&B stardom.
Darin Harmon and John Williams, two good church boys from Charlotte, North Carolina, have been best friends forever. Both use their God-given talents to breeze through high school, and both are awarded scholarships to North Carolina A&T State University; Darin for foortball and John for music.
During their sophomore year, John, the introverted momma's boy, showcases his musical genius in a homecoming talent show that changes both their lives forever. John's romantic crooning earns him the nickname "Loverboy". As his R&B career begins, he asks Darin to tag along as his manager. Darin wants no part in the music scene and has big dreams of his own, but when he suffers a season-ending football injury, he hops on the "Loverboy" bandwagon. The two set out to turn John into an R&B superstar. For Darin, dealing with John's rising fame proves a difficult challenge. The more the two adapt to the dangerous celebrity lifestyle of big-time money, fast women, and recreational drugs, the harder it gets for both to "just say no!"
Just Say No! is destined to become another urban-American classic from Omar Tyree.
This audiobook is awesome!
This was my first audiobook. I chose this one because it's in Omar Tyree's own voice. I have listened to samples of others, but felt that no one could express the true sentiments of a book better than the author! I hope Mr. Tyree continues to record his books in his own words!
THIS BOOK WAS THE FIRST BOOK I READ BY OMAR TYREE..AND I LOVED IT...I HAD TO GET IT FOR MY IPOD ...WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS BOOK IS CRAZY AND THE END OMG YOU'LL JUS HAVE TO HEAR IT YOURSELF.
This is a great book. If you're bored from watching tv you should definitely read some omar tyree.
