    The seventh child of one of Richmond, Virginia's, most ambitious hustlers, Seven is a talented poet and author with a true ear for the streets. In Gorilla Black, a boy with a love of Shakespeare and Langston Hughes struggles to thrive while growing up in the projects as the son of an alcoholic mother. In time, self-dubbed Gorilla Black will ascend to the top seat of a cocaine-fueled empire - and discover the truth about his beloved brother's death so many years before.

    Hip-hop artist Tip "T.I." Harris has received every acclaim the music world has to offer. Now, working with bestselling celebrity collaborator David Ritz, T.I. applies all his talent and experience to the world of fiction by creating the epic love story of Power and Beauty. After the death of his mother, Charlotte, Paul “Power” Clay allows himself to be guided by Slim, a local businessman. Slim always has the best of everything, and Power is sure that if he learns Slim's ways, he'll make something of himself - and perhaps be worthy of Tanya “Beauty” Long.

    Story

    Ok so I didn’t read the narrative about the book and simply assumed it was an autobiography of sorts. (((NOT!!)) It’s a novel a pretty good novel. Initially I thought it was about T.I.’s life, but the story didn’t match up with the things “I know” about T.I.

    The book has two main characters that it follows in a coming of age type of story line (which I heart). The drama and the twist and turns are unexpected. Some events seems unrealistic, like the portions of the young girl moving to all these places (East & West coasts and the Midwest ) and being put up w/o paying rent, obtaining hands-on formal training in the fashion industry. The same things happening with the guy in the book, moving around and learning the drug business indirectly by being put up and not paying his own way. I also think it is very unbelievable for a guy in which they portrayed to be able to carry out one of his 1st tasks w/o hesitation or a bit of remorse. That is all I can say without telling you the intricate details.

    GO BUY, IT’S A REALLY GOOD READ!!!

    A Blackboard best-selling author, Camika Spencer has perfectly captured the corporate world in this tale of success and secrets. Joyce, Margaret, and Faulkner all work for a major telephone company. Although Faulkner should be promoted, Joyce, her manager, seems determined to prevent it. And although Joyce and long-time employee Margaret used to be best friends, now they no longer speak.

    I would have like to have known more on various characters, but I assume that is for sequels. I'm not hype about the book. It was definitely a good book, it wasn't GREAT. I would recommend.

    It was about work drama, but not a lot of emphasis on cubicle, I guess I was being to literal. The characters were well developed. NOT predictable, which was a plus!

    Good Read.

    In the multibillion-dollar entertainment industry, there is a secret society of women all vying for the opportunity to live a lavish lifestyle by snagging a famous young millionaire. Betty Blaise, aka Fly Betty, was not in it to be a wife or the baby momma of a wealthy public figure - she set her sights much higher. While most of these women use sex as their weapon of choice, Betty, a psychology major, has developed a much more powerful weapon. But when she meets a man that she would never have anticipated falling for, her strict rules and standards are put to the test - and the tools she used so effectively against wealthy men begin to turn against her.

    I was rooting for Fly Betty the entire book. I didn't understand how Scar had the money, to throw around. The ending was 'Fly Betty'! The rules, wake me up when they are over. The ending ties everything together. I like how the author weaves the story together with the two generations.

    This book performance would be Dynamic, with another narrator. It might be better self read!

    The book and content was AMAZING!

    Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime: Harlem. Throughout his entire time in exile, the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci - but one bullet changed everything. When his enemies tried to murder Gucci, they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all.

    Story

    I don’t usually gravitate toward street fiction, if that is a genre (drug dealers and hustlers). Lately I have come across a few that have piqued my interest, this being one of them. This was a REALLY GOOD BOOK! As with most fiction, the authors throw some stuff in that make you say, “Riiiiight that could happen” (sarcastically). There’s never a dull moment. Well worth my gamble to purchase. I will read more books from this author. The book had, love, loyalty, betrayal, gangster, the opposite of a gangster the security guards, lol.
    Knowing I have read a book within a series excites me, because, I know there are more good books to read. I have to go figure the sequence and listen away. Pick them up and enjoy a slice of pie from the other side of the tracks.

    If you don’t pay attention, you will have to rewind. This book is a good read with more of the same from the previous reads in this series. Some stuff is straight unbelievable. Unbelievable in the sense you are going to be like, yeah right, that could happen(sarcastically). I did enjoy it, the sound effects, had me looking around at times trying to figure out if that was the book or something going on near me, lol. The character development, always good, you feel like you know them especially by now. I’m being really vague as not to give away the juiciness. You will not get bored, excitement throughout. Wondering if there will be a #5.

Unfortunately, in Darryl's world, what you know can hurt you. And when he winds up dead, those inquiring minds become the prime suspects.

    You are on your toes from the beginning, always figuring, concluding and coming up with the wrong answer, lol. The story line is fabulous, similar to playing a game of clue. You are trying to identify who, why, how and when. You will never guess the ending, unbelievable conclusion, but the journey of the characters are *singing * AwwWwWwesome. The little dude, oh what a revelation. The news reporters were annoyingly hilarious. That all-over-the-place daughter she was cray-cray. In summary, I like the fact that the fat girl prevails! This one was a pleasure to experience.

    Madison Tyler thought a man like Granville Washington could fulfill her sexual desires and her need for occasional male companionship. And as the owner of a multimillion-dollar multimedia firm, that’s as much as Madison wants or needs right now. Granville is desperate to hold on to Madison. The harder she tries to end contact with him, the harder he fights to stay connected to her. He knows she doesn’t love him the way he loves her - she’s repeatedly said so - but if she takes time to get to know the man behind the muscles, he’s convinced she’ll agree that they’re perfect for each other.

    Dude a little crazy (Granville), okaaay a lot crazy. No one can be that dumb, I pray. The book was good because, although you anticipate a few things, because they are twisted, they are not as predictable as you expect. Well written and full of drama. I was on the edge of my seat. Talk about captivated. The story of a stalker.

    Davie—an ugly duckling growing up in small-town Mississippi—is positive her life couldn’t be any worse. She has the meanest mother in the South, possibly the world, and on top of that, she’s pretty sure she’s ugly. Just when she’s resigned herself to her fate, she sees a movie that will change her life—Sixteen Candles. But in her case, life doesn’t imitate art.

    Story

    OMG – Monkey Night was simply the best character ever. I love the ugly duckling undertones….okaaay overtones. The true presence in the book is all about personal growth despite obstacles. It is very well written (can’t say that enough times).

    I got lost in the book, and you know what they say about a good book, they are always too short, so I am requesting a sequel. This book went up and down Interstate 95 with me, proving to make the ride intriguing and peaceful, I forgot the time.

    The narrator did this piece of art the justice it deserved. If you ever had a crush, if you have ever been embarrassed about your skeletons, if you have ever known someone that was truly a ‘B’, the artist craft fully weaves them all together in a beautiful basket, with a bow.

    Inner Circle depicts the life of Evelyn Lozada’s off-camera alter ego, Eve Inez. Much like The Basketball Wives, Inner Circle reveals everything athletes’ wives live through, complete with the cheating, scandal, manipulation, and gossip. And this time, nothing is being held back. None of the wives are prepared for how addictive their rich lifestyles can be, and they find themselves stooping to unimaginable levels of deception to preserve their social status.

    Story

    I had no expectation, because I only know the author as a reality show personality. Well be not disappointed getting this book. It was really good. The narrator slammed this one.

    This book draws a picture of items seen on the BBW, but digs a little deeper, especially in character development. It’s about a group of women that form a club based on them being involved with athletes. The groups premise is protection from those outside the circle trying to get in, like, groupies and such. Get in by trying to get their men. (Eye roll, lol) They try to get pregnant for cash and a whole lot of other instances. I will stop here before I give it away. It’s not predictable but it is......It is real juicy at times.

    'Inner Circle' written by Evelyn Lozada....She got skills. (ebonically speaking). The book was surprisingly a very good read. Between her and Ashley and JaQuavis, Cash Money is doing their thing in the book arena well, similar to their music careers. I would definitely refer this book.
