After all that Farah endured being with Lenox it seemed like she was finally gaining some self-respect and a backbone by walking away from him and his money. Then for him to show up a year later with a ring and "all is well" in paradise was a total letdown. Chicagoan, September 23, 2010.

The author first introduced the character, Farah Washington, in a previous novel. Farah had attitude and back bone. She went all out to achieve what she wanted. She worked hard! I admired her for her style, strength of determination, and independence. At the beginning of this novel, Farah was still the classy act I remembered with fondness. However, by the half way point of the novel Farah had morphed into one of my pet peeves, a wimpy heroine. Farah suddenly does not believe in her self worth, feels as though she could not hold a decent job without Lenox, and even whimpers like a beaten dog when Lenox hit her (cutting her cheek open). Hello? If a man OR woman hits the other even once, it is a red flag! I lost all admiration for my heroine. I read on hoping it would get better.

As for Lenox, he came across as little better than a pimp. He treated all his women like dirt. He claimed to love Farah, yet treated her even worse. He never beat the others. Farah came across as much classier than the others. Yet a woman such as she would not take all the verbal, mental, and physical abuse. Nor would she have used [the tape in such] petty vengeance. As I finished reading the last page and closed the book, I had no feeling of happiness or satisfaction. I felt let down. Perhaps I am simply used to "happily ever afters" when I escape into a good book. This ending left me cold, with no real closure.

I adored Maryann Reid's previous novel, but I cannot enjoy or recommend this one. I am still a fan of the author's, do not get me wrong. However, I can still be a fan and not enjoy every book she writes. I am hoping the next novel has more closure.

One of Maryann Reid's characters from Sex and the Single Sister is making a repeat performance in her latest novel, USE ME OR LOSE ME. New York news anchor Farah Washington wants to move up in the world in terms of her career. Although she's a popular network personality, she's still not where she wants to be: at the helm of the nationwide morning talk show Rise and Shine. But the new sistah in charge at the station, Ms. Joyce Meyers, has no such plans for the young broadcaster. This perplexes Farah because she expects for the only other African American female at the station to have her back.
Like her career, Farah's love life has come to crossroads. She is envious of the life her best girlfriend Lola leads with her baby girl and husband Chris. During the bustle at her job, Farah remains focused on the latest stories and the industry buzz, but at her apartment the silence is deafening, the bed is cold, and her biological clock ticking away.
Farah meets debonair attorney Lenox Whitworth during her contract negotiations with the network. He's a high class, well-bred brother who makes his own way and gives back to the community. They begin to form a relationship filled with high society shindigs, lavish trips, and wining and dining. Both Lenox and Farah are after something, whether it is arm candy or career advancement. As Lenox says, "If you can't be used, you're useless." Their tumultuous existence together is the driving force behind USE ME OR LOSE ME.
Reid tells Farah and Lenox's story in a way that keeps you interested and intrigued. I was incessantly trying to envision the next road she was going to take me down. The plot is not anything groundbreaking, nor are the characters eccentric or raw; but it works. A tale of romance, seduction, and life lessons USE ME OR LOSE ME is just an entertaining story.

Remember Farah, from Sex and the Single Sister? She?s back! She is the featured character in Maryann Reid?s newest novel, Use Me or Lose Me. Farah has not changed one bit. This time she may have met her match with her beau, Lenox.
Farah Washington can be described as the piranha in the newsroom of Channel 7. Already the evening news anchorwoman, she is after the job of anchoring the Rise and Shine morning show. Nothing or no one is going to stop Farah from reaching this goal. She is the master manipulator. Do not get in her way or you will get stepped on. Lenox Whitworth is the super fine, wealthy Jamaican lawyer for the television station. He is in charge of Farah?s contract. He invites Farah to have dinner one night and this good looking couple immediately become the power couple amongst their peers. Lenox has money and all the right connections with the Lyncs, a social organization, and his aunt, Ms. Meyers, who is also Farah?s boss. Lenox also has lots of problems; his friends expect him to ?fix? their problems using his connections, some of them mistake his kindness for weakness, but the biggest problem is Maritza, a woman that can turn this fairytale relationship into a nightmare.
Use Me or Lose Me is a fun read. There are interesting characters and exotic locales. The vacation to St. Tropez is worthy of note. Both Farah and Lenox are very pretentious; therefore designer name-dropping fit the character?s manner and did not take anything way from the story. Farah even goes as far as to purchase Gucci-wear for her infant goddaughter. I think the readers will enjoy some surprises in the storyline and the ending. I recommend adding this to your reading list.
