I heard from a few friends that this author was their favorite so I had much higher expectations and definitely felt like I wasted my time when I heard the narrator say "The End". Definitely not something that I would listen to again.

I didn't have high hopes from the first few minutes of listening, but sometimes I get pleasantly surprised by these type of books so I gave it a try. This time however, it's NO pleasant surprise. No parts of it were good and even iiKane and the wack attempt at a cliffhanger could make me want to listen to the rest of the series.

Andre "Thug-A-Licious" Williams escaped Harlem’s meanest streets thanks to his stellar hoop moves and explosive mic skills.

But Thug also has a nightmarish history with someone else. Pimp Williams, his cousin and ex-partner in crime, is a cold-blooded killer who spreads havoc all over Harlem and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

I had this book in my wishlist twice and removed it twice, but after listening to most of my good african american urban romance package selections I decided to just go ahead and listen and UUUUUUGH, I am so mad I did. The beginning of this book was confusing, the middle was a repeat of the beginning (literally. several chapters repeated) and then the end was a sad let down. Like one time can this author just let things end on a positive note?

*Spoiler* With the exception of the writers writing themselves into the book and lead character hanging himself in the end (which was dumb and made no sense to the storyline), the book was predictable from beginning to end. iiKane is the only reason I continued to listen.

This book, while shorter than all others in the series was definitely the one that had the most twist, turns and unexpected moments. Typically these books are pretty predictable to me, but this one definitely kept me on my toes! The ending in particular... OH EM GEEE!!! No one could have ever predicted that!

While there were several mispronunciations, iiKane did not disappoint and as usual her character voices are unmatched!

Much to my surprise, this was a pretty good book series. Book 2 was my least favorite, but 3 tied them all in, as well as looped in some other Ashley and Jaquavis characters.

This book had me emotional overload!! Like I seriously need a nap and some chocolate or something. I have listened to several books from these authors so I know that happy ending are RARE for them.. But THIS ending! WHYYYYYYY?? Why couldn't this just be the ONE TIME that everyone didn't parish?? Although I am shaking my head at the conclusion, the book did hold my attention from beginning to end. And if you don't mind being completely like WTH in the end, I would recommend that you listen.

Eden Anderson is more than a little annoyed at her bad luck when she gets stuck with Jansen McKnight as a temporary roommate. Not only did he torment her as a child, but he’s also a meat-loving, gun-toting cop. So when Jansen bets he can seduce Eden, she can’t wait to show him up. But things aren’t quite black and white—and only time will tell who will come out on top.

I tried but I just can't finish this book. This narrator sounds congested and the dialogue in the first few chapters is so childish and stupid that I just can't give it any more of my time. Maybe a different narrator would have given it a different flow and could have saved it, but this one made it a definite no for me.
