The third book, The Evolution of Nikki Blue has captured my entire heart!! Nikki's strength and mentality is tested in her latest trials. From the first page of book 1 to the last page of book 3, I was truly engaged emotionally.

“Monika is courageous. Hearing her speak touches your heart and gives you permission to be fearless at a time when being different is very unpopular.”
