A tawdry slab of old-school, Iceberg Slim-style pulp fiction with characters -- from the sexed-up, drug-dealing spark plug of the title story to a preacher-loving nymphomaniac with a terrible family secret-- straight out of Williams' own colorful life. - AOL Spinner

Could easily serve as a Bible for Tiger Woods - Now Dig This (UK)

Fans of Iceberg Slim and Donald Goines will find themselves right at home in the pages of ‘Sweets’: a headlong run through a gritty underworld written with the intimate veritas of someone who has most definitely lived there. - Broken Headphones

Andre Williams adds to his R&B legacy by penning an adventure that's funny, truthful and scary. Sweets is a breezy and scandalous fun house ride that reads like an X-rated police blotter. An original literary event that is not to be missed. - Dave the Spazz (WFMU)
