Dude this book was good

Before I get to it, let me say it’s a few spoilers in this book.


But dude, this book was really good I thought I wouldn’t get a chance to finish it, but I did. And I figure that Demarcus dad was lord king and his cousin Omar is one shady dude but Lord King crew some fake ones smh you can never trust the people you feed. The only person you can trust is yourself. I knew Bria was Also talking about Omar and what he did to her, also the females I wonder where they are at > the ones who set up Demarcus on the bogus fake rape charge that they accused him of. And Demarcus shouldn’t have trusted Orlando smh I mean come on Gutta even told him that man is not to be trusted. I can’t wait to start part 2 if dog food. I have been wanting to read this series glad I have gotten the chance, and I wasn’t disappointed at all good book.

I love me some Cole, lol! IDK about Carter, but I like how he cared about EMMA the way he did. And Cole was protective of her too, but I did wonder if Amanda boyfriend aka cop boyfriend knew who those guys were that was coming to pick up Emma maybe not because Cole was actually there. But book 2 was good, even though I felt like it was a drag.

The truck is a B, lol! When he saw The Hound, he said: "You know what?" I hope his little snitch *** get murked. And I am glad he got what he deserved too. Because he set Cutty up and end up in the cell with Cutty, ha, KARMA's is a mother I tell you. Plus the only real dudes was in this book to me was Cutty, Mel, Rio, Prince, Jay, and the kid that Mel hung out with that left. It was sad that they all died in the end except Cutty, but still, Rio went out like the G that he was. Plus, it's crazy how people underestimated Rio, but what brought his demon Side out was the situations that has to happen to Trinity or if someone says something about her. He truly love that girl, I felt he should've killed himself, I mean love will do that to a person. I am just glad everyone found out who Truck really was. Also, I want a book about The Hound and Kane. I love them lol they are awesome.

I am #DEAD!!!! I am here like yassssss "Omari" whoop that trick, whoop that trick." yasss Simone deserves that *** whooping that Omari gave her, heck not only Omari heck the *** beating that Jimmy gave her was worth it too. I felt like everyone shouldn't be hard on Chance because Simone is the caused of everything, plus


I am weak asab why am I laughing at wth is happening to Simone lmao. The little girls said "RUN LADY, WATCH OUT! I am wondering who done knock Simone out once again, I am thinking Jimmy *** lol. But it's funny how Ebony thinking Omari, forgave Simone aha, I knew that doesn't forgive her.


Even though Simone is a BITCH, she didn't deserve to get raped. But truth be told, KARMAS a BITCH!!!! Made me Cringe when she was poked in both areas. That's worse what Omari did, but look what she did to her friend Tammy, Aiysha, and Ayisha baby (Dahlia)

But anyways, I hope nothing happens to Chance, I prefer him alive and in jail, plush when and if he gets out him better LOVE, Gia back. Also, I agree with Gia when she mentions that Chance was innocent as Aiyesha and Dahlia which is true because all 3 were innocent people, that Simone did wrong by either killing or setting up. I already knew Chance felt bad unlike Simone, her *** still don't care. But Omarion, man I cannot wait until he finds himself, love, because he has been through so much. Plus Simone isn't dead.

But Omari, man I cannot wait until he finds himself, love because he was done been through to much. Plus Simone isn't dead. I cannot wait until I read book 4.

Here.... And

There....

Man, I hate Simone, she's ruined peoples lives. Not only has skewer killed Aisha but she killed her baby too. Because she was jealous of both of them. I don't get how she thinks to murder both Aisha, and their baby would keep Omari. Once Omari finds out she done killed not only his woman but his baby his ass going to go crazy. Heck Simone even tried to take Omari sister baby. Like the girl, you are beyond crazy, and you know in the real world some men and women actually act the way Simone do.

I'm pissed at Gia for snitching on Chance because she was hurt, I blamed Simone for that because she coos that boy into murdering Aisha. I felt like Chance was naive in the beginning until he realized that Simone was a lier. I hope nothing happens to Chance because man I like him but knowing Omari pretty boy crazy self, it's no telling what is going to happen.


Plus I am wondering if Omari killed Ching or not I hope not UGH.

This book was so good like I couldn't help but listen to it when I was supposed to be doing my assignments. The beginning had me lost because I assume the guy narrator was talking as Evan, but I learned that he was the narrator for Ben. I assume Ben may not be dead and figured out Evan was an Alien.

But I was itching for Ben and Cassie to meet up again, and it's weird how he doesn't remember her, it maybe because of all that he been through because in my mind I believe he was the guy who was hurt in the tent ... wait yes, he was because he mentioned that he killed the guy who shared the tent thing with him.

Also, I was glad both he and Cassie made the promise to Sammie, that they'll come back for him. I was weak though when they both were staring at each other ready to kill one another, but Sammie saved them both by running to Ben and removing the mask from his face.

And like Evan, he is a beast I knew it was him that was blasting all of those people that the evil guy Vosuh had mentioned. He's the bimbo that killed her dad, right in front of her.

But I cannot wait to read part 2 and 3 I might have to find those books on Amazon the full set or go to Books A Million. And buy them because I am itching to know what happens next, plus I plan to buy the movie on google play so I can see it in video play.

This book was good, omg, yes, love the story. Now, this is one of those books, that I been wanting to read but never gotten around to actually getting the book and reading it. And now, finally gotten that chance, may I say I am not disappointed. I cannot wait to read part 2 don't know when but I will.

Definitely a enjoyable read, funny how people assume that someone who's not popular or a nerd cannot get someone who's put of their league or someone who's popular and not in their caliber. I am glad that Roman aka Romeo, didn't care what anyone thinks.

But may I say this reminds me of the book I love i mean movie I love so much with the awkward nerd girl "another teenage movie" I think that's the name, where the girl change her appearance. Ha funny how it does that with someone who is not popular and wear glasses and nerdy.

May say I can relate to that because how I use to dress and stuff back when I was a teenager and in my early 20s so I can understand how Rimmel felt.

Great book though! #TeamRomMelli
