Publisher's Summary

Billie (aka "Ducati") is known as much for her extraordinary beauty as for the sexy yellow Ducati motorcycle she rides through the mean streets of Los Angeles. Tough, talented, and self-assured, Billie's used to doing things her way - but that was before love threw an oil slick in the road and spun her life into chaos.

Billie's first problem is simple: She's pregnant. Her second problem is that her lover, Keith, is still married.

Keith has some "things" to deal with, and the people in his life are dark and duplicitous enough to take matters into their own hands, determined to keep Billie from having her baby. Billie suddenly finds herself confronted, attacked, run off highways, threatened, and shadowed. Keith still has ties to his manipulative wife, Carmen, and he adores his 15-year-old daughter, Destiny. Will he do the right thing by his new family, or stand by his old one?

Soon all eyes shift as everyone finds themselves desperately chasing Destiny, a troubled and deceptive girl dancing on the edge of womanhood. When the rubber meets the road, all the madness with Billie, Carmen, and Keith comes to a head. Everyone's fighting dirty for what they want...and they're all willing to destroy their enemy or go down in flames to get it.

    "A VERY ANIMATED LISTEN!!!!"

    THIS IS A GOOD BOOK TO LISTEN TO. I MUST SAY THAT THE NARRATION FOR THIS BOOK WAS GREAT BECAUSE IT MADE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE IN THE STORY AND U ARE WATCHING IT HAPPEN BEFORE YOUR EYES. THERE WERE A LOT OF MOMENTS THAT WERE USED IN THIS BOOK THAT HAD ME LMAO!!! AND PEOPLE WOULD WONDER WHAT IS SO FUNNY. I HAVE TO SAY THAT THE AUTHOR AND NARRATOR DID A GOOD JOB AND IF THIS NARRATOR WAS TO READ ANOTHER BOOK I WOULD LISTEN IN A HEART BEAT!!!!

    "Couldn't stop listening"

    This is a well written story that could easily be made into a movie. What really got me was the way the Narrator brought the story and Characters to life any time someone spoke you knew who it was so I will be looking for more audio books narrated by Kimberly Jajuan. Great Listen.

    "Never Disappointing"

    This book took me to another world. Had me out looking at Ducati's and wanting to be a biker. It a page turner. Didn't get that bike, but this book definitely took me for a ride.

    I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.

    "Interesting Story"

    ***Possible story spoilers***
    There are things about this story that I loved. The majority of the book was fast paced and kept me on my toes. I felt that much of this story is relateable. How often re-bound relationships go up in smoke, people make choices based on finances rather than the heart and someone always gets hurt. At the end of the day money talks and many bitter ex???s will stop at nothing to get what they want. The ex was easy to hate (as a woman and a mother) and the father was hard to feel sorry for. And what happened on the streets with Destiny???well who hasn???t been hurt and wanted revenge? The saddest part in the story is how the parents left their child to deal with life by herself. Her mother only wanted her child for what she could give her and the father, while he thought he was a great father; seemed very self centered and unaware. The way Destiny???s character was written she seemed very childish but easily flipped on her evil side when she was back stabbed. Towards the end the story started to drag for me but I like knowing in the end that some people got what they deserved for the hurt they inflicted. That you have to be accountable for your actions and I was happy to see Billie not back down to Keith. He was doing his child more harm by not making her face the consequences she created otherwise how will she ever break the cycle her mother???s family taught her and learn better ways to handle her problems.
    I wish all the overlapping story lines were tied up a little more but overall I left this story knowing Billie would survive and thrive and that Keith and his family would suffer the consequences they deserved from their actions. Keith may not have done anything terrible but he didn't man up for his choices. You can't be sad when you life goes sideways and you sat by and did nothing. And how did he have no clue about his wife's family? He should have expected some of what happened after being around the family for all those years. So if he was clueless due to his own inadequacies then he deserved what he got. Anyway, my point is that this story felt pretty real and when I finished I had feelings and thoughts on what happened to each person in the story because the author made me think and feel. And in my eyes that's a story worth listening to.

    "Foul Language"

    I was disgusted by the language every 5 min that was used in this book. I was referred to this book by a professional and now it is causeing me to think twice about the character of the author and the person that referred this piece of garbage. Waste of a credit for all those who value great literature...!!!!!

    "Don't Want To Put It Down!"

    EJD is very talented, and there really hasn't been a book yet that he hasn't written that I have not enjoyed.

    Next to the Gideon series, this book was none stop on the story line, action, and curiosity. I found it so hard to put down, and would love to see these characters develop into other stories. Especially Destiny's character--there seems so much left to be written for her.
