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.

the title sounds as hot as the thong, but hearing the opening statement.....( Stay Black ) shows this is going to be a slurred interpretation of any and all other races. refuse to even try to listen.

love the books...the author is always great but this narrative is not suitable for this book! She is a good narrator but she would be more suitable for some snooty loud spoken type book! if you can get past the snood part you can possibly catch on to the storyline with due to the author is always good

While listening I had trouble figuring out who was who because the person reading did a poor job of changing voices. Also the writer gave away the plot to soon in the book I was able to guess the outcome before hand. I listened to the book regardless but that was because I had nothing else to listen too.

Two all-new novellas that cross the boundaries of desire. "Exiled" by Maya Banks: Enticed to the island paradise where an enigmatic prince is living in exile, beautiful, virginal Talia is introduced to a world of forbidden pleasure where the prince's every whim is fulfilled and her fantasies are rendered in exquisite detail. "Sway" by Lauren Dane: Levi Warner is an established, older man - wealthy, powerful, and above all, respectable. Then Levi meets Daisy, an uninhibited 24-year-old dance instructor and artist, not exactly the kind of woman Levi is accustomed to. But the young, free spirit, brings out something in him he only experienced in fantasies.

"My name is different every month: Brandy, Honey, Amy. Sometimes Joe doesn't even bother to ask, but he never fails to arouse me with his body, his mouth, his touch, no matter what I'm called or where he picks me up. The sex is always amazing....My real name is Sadie, and once a month, over lunch, Joe tells me about his latest conquest. But what Joe doesn't know is that, in my mind, I'm the star of every one-night stand he has revealed to me, or that I'm practically obsessed with our imaginary sex life."

This book is full of sadness and truth, that some people may live. But for me when I choose to read or listen to a book I am looking for a get-a-way from my normal life. A fantasy, a romance I have not experianced in a long time, not something I want to cry over. Something so sad and full of sorrow mixed with erotica. Megan Hart is one of my most fav authors I own more hardbacks than audio of her work but this is the first I have been more sad over than any others.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

She was good with her writings but rambled alot about pointless information.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Nothing, she was very good.

Do you have any additional comments?

Wish more would have happened with Severn.

Seven years ago Kaylin fled the crime-riddled streets of Nightshade, knowing that something was after her. Children were being murdered— and all had the same odd markings that mysteriously appeared on her own skin….Since then, she's learned to read, she's learned to fight and she's become one of the vaunted Hawks who patrol and police the City of Elantra. Alongside the winged Aerians and the immortal Barrani, she's made a place for herself, far from the mean streets of her birth.

Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I have not listened to Khristine Hvam before but found she makes the books seem more realistic and the change in peoples voices is perfect. She was consistant with her people and voice change and it made the book easy to follow.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no it was not a page turner as I would call it. I enjoyed the book but was dissapointed in how there is no romance. I kept looking for more to develope with severn but turned out to be highly disapointed.
