Publisher's Summary

Two children from Sierra Leone, Liberty and A’shai, are brought together by chance, only to be forced apart by the most inevitable and tragic fate. Ashley & JaQuavis bring us this classic love story set against modern life’s most horrifying realities.

Liberty is dying of a fatal heart condition, though she desperately wants to survive until her 25th birthday, when her sister has promised to visit her. A’shai blames himself for not protecting Liberty, but all Liberty asks is for A’shai to tell her a story, to help her remember what brought them to this point. He knows that this is the last story he will ever tell—and the last she will ever hear.

As Liberty lies dying, A’shai walks her through their past, reliving their ill-fated journeys through the streets. Their story will take them from an arranged marriage, through Mexico’s drug cartel, child brothels, and hustling in Detroit, to escaping the high-powered heads of LA’s underworld. But ultimately, this is a story of love and redemption that will leave you breathless from the unpredictable and mind-blowing ending.

    "Sad ending... Great love story!!!"

    This story was good...... Very different setting than the usual person of who overcomes turmoil in life. It also show's examples of unconditional love and when you are trully connected with a person and they're for you, you will always crave them and feel incomplete without the. I feel like Shai could've did more to save his love and she was a bit weak and an airhead but it was still a very good story. I loved the narrator too. I think this is a big part in audio books.

    "I just love Ashley"

    After the Prada plan ended I didn't think I'd find another urban classic to fall in love with. But this book right here had me on the edge of my sit the entire time. Ready for book two

    "Excellent story but..."

    Great story per usual. Ashley and Jaquavis always write entertaining stories. My only gripe is the African accent that Cary Hite spoke in. I LOVE Cary Hite. His accents are always spot on. Perhaps I just find African accents to be irritating in general? I also love how the authors integrate other characters from previous books into new stories. My only other gripe is they use that word "Ma" constantly! Lol otherwise a great read. On to book two!

    "Great story, terrible ending"

    Really great novel, don't care for the ending though. I could see what she was trying to do with the ending but it should've just been left with the death of the two.

    "No Cartel But still Thrilling"

    This one got off to a slow start, but in true Ashley & JaQuavius fashion left me wanting more. On to Part 2 of Murderville

    "Could Not Hold My Interest"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story line. I tried to get through this but had the hardest time. I usually enjoy the books that Cary Hite narrates, but this story line just could not hold my attention. I had to stop listening and then come back

    I've been listening to audio books for a while and I have to say that this is the best book I ever purchased on here. I was hooked from the very beginning and I already purchased the second one and can't wait to start it tomorrow. You will NOT regret getting this book.
