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. From Chicago to Miami to New York, through drugs, women, and violence, Power makes the difficult transition from boy to man and, in doing so, begins to question if those who have taught him - including Slim - truly have his best interests at heart.
Beauty has always known that the only person she can rely on is herself. After her mother died when she was eleven years old, she was adopted by close family friend Charlotte Clay. But with Charlotte's death, Beauty knows she's no longer safe and protected - especially as Power gets sucked into a new kind of life. As soon as she can, she turns her back on Atlanta - and the growing love she feels for Power--for a chance to make it in the Big Apple. With a successful fashion career on the horizon, Beauty takes New York by storm with her wit, business savvy, and breathtaking good looks. But she's never forgotten those she left behind. And when it becomes clear that Power needs her, Beauty will risk everything to save the man she loves.

this is the best book i've heard yet
they story line was wonderful
all of them were amazing with accents and all
power and beauty
this is a wonderful book big ups to tip he did a wonderful job
The ending is a cliffhanger... to be continued. I didn't really like that aspect of it.
Also, both Power and Beauty both 16 at the start of the story, don't give you a sense that they are teenagers. They act like grown 40 year-olds without any teenage angst or 'tudes'. Entertaining but not real.
