For those of you who loved Flyy Girl your gonna be happy to learn that Omar Tyree's new novel is continuing her life in the third chapter of this series, what do ya'll think? here is the synopsis: When we first met Tracy Ellison in Omar Tyree's breakthrough novel Flyy Girl, she was still a fun-loving 'round-the-way girl coming up on the streets of Philly. Stardom beckoned in For the Love of Money, which chronicled Tracy's struggles with the pressures of power and celebrity. Now, Tyree checks in on everybody's favorite flyy girl and finds her a little bit older, a whole lot wiser, and just as sassy as ever. Immersing readers in the dazzling world of Hollywood's A-list players, Boss Lady is Omar Tyree's most entertaining novel to date. Told from the point of view of Tracy's personal assistant and cousin, Vanessa. Boss Lady chronicles the trials and tribulations of adapting the story of Tracy Ellison's life. In this novel, Flyy Girl is becoming a major motion picture and Tracy is prepared to do anything and everything to tell her story, and to make sure it's done right. Stepping in and taking charge of it all, from screenwriting and directing to executive producing and designing, Tracy quickly finds herself more than a little overextended. In the meantime, she's also juggling the highs and lows of her famously turbulent love life. Is it better to remain single and committed to her career? Or is she ready to take the plunge and embrace the married-with-children life? Shot through with Omar Tyree's irresistible urban style, Boss Lady finds the author's best-loved character at the top of her game, thoroughly in charge, and taking life strictly on her own terms.

i think tyree is done period, to be honest. he a coo writer but he's getting blown away by some newer cats in his genre. i wouldn't buy it and i would hesitate to read it if someone else had it.

I have to agree. I mean, I couldn't even get past chapter one of For the Love of Money at all. The pace was too slow for my liking, but I figure maybe I'll try to read it again...who knows? I think he should've stopped at the first book.

Yeah, For the love of money wasnt that hot. But every since I've read Zane, other writers have become like blah to me. I would say she is my fav. author right now.
