Summary:

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.

Genres:

  • Katherine Robinson

    I've been a fan of the author for several years, and I thought the book was good.

  • TAMEIA CARTER

    The story was good but the singing was too much, too often...and terrible! I got to be annoying.

  • Lea

    I really enjoyed this book. This is the first that I have read from this talented Writer. I will select another of his books.

  • Keith

    This would have received 5 stars except that the author should have hired someone to sing the songs. Because the singing was so bad, it made it difficult to believe that the main character received all of this acclaim for his singing. The story was decent though. It kept my interest.

  • Anonymous

    This was a very light read that I enjoyed. The characters came alive for me, and I felt like I knew them. I felt like these could have been two guys I went to college with if one turned famous. I would recommend this book.

  • Yonnice Ransom

    I really enjoyed this book the bad thing I can say about this book is that Omar Tyee can NOT sing but It was a really good book outside of that.
