Why exactly Charley Bordelon's late father left her eight hundred sprawling acres of sugarcane land in rural Louisiana is as mysterious as it was generous. Recognizing this as a chance to start over, Charley and her 11-year-old daughter, Micah, say good-bye to Los Angeles. They arrive just in time for growing season but no amount of planning can prepare Charley for a Louisiana that's mired in the past: as her judgmental but big-hearted grandmother tells her, cane farming is always going to be a white man's business.
Great narrator, easy to follow plot. Southern story telling at its best. Captured Louisiana beautifully, with vivid and accurate description.
When the Zombie Apocalypse came, one country had shut down its borders in response to a major terrorist attack. Now Fortress Britain is the last bastion of the living - with 50 million beleaguered survivors facing down a world of seven billion animated corpses. And one international team of elite special operators - supremely trained and armed, always the most skilled, resolved, and unstoppable amongst us - are humanity's last best hope for survival....
Overall this series was ok. The first book was like pulling teeth had it not been for R.C. Bray being the narrator I'm sure I'd have never made it to the end. The second and 3rd book were progressively better than the first, but still no prize. Honestly I wouldn't recommend the waste of cash or a credit on this slow read

The ultimate love story began in White Lines, and now, in this stunning conclusion, Jada and Born come full circle - but not without paying a hefty price. On the surface, Jada's life is back on track - she's battled her demons, her son is a permanent part of her life - but it still feels like she's on shaky ground. What she really needs to settle her soul is to have Born back in her life - and in her arms - again. But reuniting with the man she loves is proving to be the hardest thing she's ever fought for.
I read the trilogy, and loved every minute. Great Read. Suspenseful, emotional, and a great ending.

Once the streets pull you in, they own you. Or at least that's the way it's been for Nautica. Growing up in the hood, all she's ever known is the fast life - fast money illicitly made through scandals and relentless scheming. But when a big scam nearly finishes her off, she decides she wants more out of life than the hustle and tries to make a new life for herself on the East Coast.
Loved it.... Suspensful, edge of my seat, hood dramas. At times it was so intense I had to just stop listening, regroup and then continue. Great, great, great book.

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.
This one got off to a slow start, but in true Ashley & JaQuavius fashion left me wanting more. On to Part 2 of Murderville
Trying to survive the projects in the late 1980s, Gena locked in to the game, and when she met millionaire drug dealer Quadir, she was primed and ready to help the man she loved build a massive empire. All the while, Gena fought to hold onto her man, her house, her car, and the stash of cold, hard cash they’d amassed. But as hard as she fought to hold onto that life, she knew that in the vicious, seductive world of the streets, nothing lasts forever.
Loved it, this is an edge of your seat, I gotta know what's gone happen next, mystery/Thriller with a twist at every turn. I can't wait to get to part 3.
