Multi-platinum rapper Devin has it all. Money, cars, fame, women - he’s living the life of a rockstar. As with anything in life, all good things come to the end of its cycle, and God takes you off of a path so that you can begin anew. Devin stops getting booked for shows, and it causes a ripple affect on his life. Now unable to take care of his family, he turns to heavy drug use to take his mind off of the pain. When the money stops flowing, all of the love that he thought was genuine doesn’t exist at all.

I listened to this book while at work. I can truly relate with the main character as I am struggling myself (I can't believe I am writing this), I lost my apartment. I'm always broke and now I'm living with my best friend with my adult son and 6 yr old daughter. It's a ripple effect. But I am very grateful for what I have. I am trying my best to overcome this obstacle and focus on the positive. I have my health, my children have good health, I have family and friends that care. I have a great job. So with that being said, this book is awesome! I did not know what it was about I just thought the title was catchy. God is the one who put this book in my hands. To allow me to keep the faith that I will overcome this. Its been so very hard but I know and feel that everything will be okay. Now for the review. The narrator messed up countless times, repeating sentences and the biggest mistake was going to one year later (must have been last chapter) when the main character is out of jail than the next chapter he is still in jail??? Very confusing, I think this audible book should be fixed and the narrator should correct mistakes. Other than that, great narrator and awesome read/listen!!!

Lauren Robinson knows exactly what it takes to be the perfect mistress. She had a front-row seat when she tagged along with her father on all of his extramarital trysts. She loved keeping Daddy's special secrets, but many family members, especially her mother, consider her an accomplice in helping break up their family. This emotional distance and Lauren's early dating experiences lead her to date married men.

Afraid for her life and the safety of her daughter, she keeps her mouth shut, but when a tape of the murder surfaces, the only face that is visible is Alija's. Now the police are looking for their eyewitness.

All hell has broken loose, and the McPhearson clan is right in the middle of the chaos. After finding out their beloved foster mother, Claudette McPhearson, was anything but the sweet old woman they thought her to be, Javon, Shanelle, and the rest of their siblings hit the ground running in order to keep the Syndicate operating and to keep themselves alive. That also means they have to lose some of the people they love the most.

I love the writers! Always feels like you are in the scenes of a movie! I was reading the reviews and a lot of credit went to Carl Weber, although Mr. Weber is an excellent author and I have read all of his books including the Family Business Series! He did not write this book. The great authors Brick and Storm have written many books and Mr. Weber Presents them per the title "Carl Weber Presents"
As always great storytelling, can't wait for part 3!

They were just kids when Claudette McPhearson took them all in. Eight of them all together. All different races and ethnic makeups, but she loved them as her own. One woman taught them how to love, trust, and respect one another. She was the only glue that kept them together, the only one they wanted to please and never let down. She had been their light at the end of a long troublesome tunnel - it shined so bright. Then, one dreadful day, it all came to a crashing halt.

It's a hard knock life for Saucy Sarita Robinson, and the rules of the game are clear: Get yours or get had. When her father gets popped in an armed robbery and her mother turns to drugs, Saucy is left to scratch out a life for herself on the streets of Harlem, and this city-slick vixen refuses to become a victim. Young, hot, and hungry for the spotlight, Saucy uses her assets to get whatever she wants: 128th Street has its own rules, and she knows them well.

intertwined into one! She had a horrible childhood but instead of focusing on overcoming those tribulations by working hard in school, doing the opposite of what her mom was she became just as bad or even worse. She selfish, believed the world revolved around her, felt she looked better than everyone else, used her looks to lie, cheat and manipulate others to get what she wanted. and even when she lost everything and hit rock bottom, she still believed she did nothing wrong! Struggled to finish this book Cuz I couldn't stand her, she had everything fame, good friend a good man and a beautiful child but she chose sex drugs and the night life and lost it all!! How selfish!! The book should have been read by Nicole Small!!! , felt the narrator could have been better, she just read instead of getting into "character" had she done that, I would have finished the book in one sitting. Although this book is a work of fiction the character displays many different woman in one! It's an unfortunate reality.
