this was an amazingly written book. I was completely enthralled with this love story from beginning to end. the ending was surprising, and felt fictional. it's never really that easy, but it was warm and very needed for the character in this story. I loved it!!!

I still dont know what to make of this book. it was just unbelievable! the production was bad...the voice inflections were wrong, words were mispronounced. and the story was like watching that train wreck. the story veered towards Christian fiction, but Heaven was anything but Godly. I'm still baffled.

I have never had a book to take me to this place. I've miscarried several times and this book took me back to that place...the place to where my heart completely broke into unwanted pieces. i didnt get any explanation, had no one to blame. Be prepared....this book will take you to the limits of love and hate, passion and frigid.
I almost couldnt finish this. IT WAS JUST THAT POWERFUL.
I dont want you to kill for me ...I need you to teach me to breath again!
This book an example of love...or how to live without it!!!

Angela grew up in an all-black upper-class neighborhood in Virginia Beach. Being raised by conservative parents, street life was almost nonexistent. Her college years at Hampton University would truly educate her; not only in school, but also in life. She never imagined the attention her body and beauty would bring her. Angela finds herself torn between Mac, a successful real estate broker, and Damien, a young Jamaican hustler from Brooklyn. Both show Angela love in their own way, and her choice will be her destiny.

No matter how hard he tries to keep Morgan away from the streets, she is determined to defy him. When Morgan finds herself in a vulnerable position, Ethic is pulled back into the deadly game where he was once king.
