Take a look inside the lives of three close friends. Dre and Hassan have been robbing convenience stores and small banks together since high school, but they share something else in common other than making cold, hard cash: their love for Nikki.
The stakes are high after the trio takes on a scheme that unexpectedly sets off a chain of deadly events. With greed, betrayal, and heartache pulling them all in separate directions, will they be able to overcome it all? Or will their very foundation crumble beneath lust, lies, and deception?

this was an awesome read. the dramatic change ups downs & unexpected twists and turns and the love scenes were something memorable I really enjoy it very disappointed at the ending not quite expecting that looking forward two the sequel hope I don't have to wait too long .. I wasn't expecting to lose the characters that messed me up. but dre still here. hmmmm
This book was so good. Dre messed around on his girl with one of her family members and got upset when she returned the favor. I wasn't expecting the ending, I didn't see that coming. I really hope it's gonna be a part 2!
I was a little concerned at first because there wasn't any reviews at all om this book. At first, when I started listening the narrator read too fast to the point where I had to start the book over twice. But about 4 or so chapters later I was all into it and the narrator calmed down and became the characters. Actually a pretty good narrator at that. Book was really good alot of action, twists and deep betrayals! Drama just how I like it!! Will keep you entertained and the ending is crazy but was left to be continued by a second book. Great story!!
I thought this was a well-done book, and gave it very high marks across the board. However, I wouldn't listen to it again. The characters were just too violent and hopeless, and after listening, I felt an overwhelming sense of despair. Perhaps that is a testament to the skill of the author, because she really caused me to have strong feelings for a long time after listening to this book. Afterwards, I felt really depressed, and hoped that this was just a story; and that no real people had lives that were filled with so many sad, unfortunate choices. I guess that means that she wrote some very vivid descriptions!
Carl Atkins was very good as a narrator, and I would definitely search out more books narrated by him. However, there were a noticeable amount of distracting glitches, such as repeated sentences, a tongue-tied "bleh" noise, and the use of an audio noise gate--just editing errors that are easily fixed. I also would have liked for him to have made more use of pauses and spacing between the scenes. Often, I would be listening to a scene about one character, and it would seem to just magically morph into a scene involving another character. A little artful vocal spacing or use of silence or pauses between the paragraphs would have helped immensely with those transitions, because with audiobooks, all we have is the narration to help set the scene and keep the numerous details straight in our minds. It's not like we can easily flip back a few paragraphs to realize that we have changed characters and perspectives. It was too bad, because I enjoyed his narration otherwise, and thought it really added a lot to the story.
I don't recall being warned in the description about the explicit sex and violence in this book. The scenes were not gratuitous, but clearly a part of the story, and actually quite well written. I didn't mind the scenes, but they really caught me off guard, and I think that people might like to be warned about what to expect. It might actually become a selling point!
will someone be torn between a goon and a gangsta in the sequel? i would like to see some a bit more character and story development, movement and structure. based in the title, i waited for the angst, the goon to show up or something gangsta to happen.
