The storyline is strong. The narrator is really terrible. She used the same pattern to read the entire story and her inflections fell in the wrong places. I had to concentrate really hard to listen past her voice to hear the story. Now, if this book would have been narrated by Patricia R. Floyd, it would have been great!

The summary of this story seemed great and I eagerly downloaded. The story itself is well written but the narrators are absolutely horrible! The narrators are more suited for a western story than urban fiction. Don't waste your money on this story. I am sure that reading the written story is much better than listening to the audio version.

Hip-hop artist Tip "T.I." Harris has received every acclaim the music world has to offer. Now, working with bestselling celebrity collaborator David Ritz, T.I. applies all his talent and experience to the world of fiction by creating the epic love story of Power and Beauty. After the death of his mother, Charlotte, Paul “Power” Clay allows himself to be guided by Slim, a local businessman. Slim always has the best of everything, and Power is sure that if he learns Slim's ways, he'll make something of himself - and perhaps be worthy of Tanya “Beauty” Long.

I love T.I. but this book was horrible! The story spent so much time detailing the lives and history of the people the main characters (Power & Beauty) were suppose to be "learning" from, the story line between the two main characters was never developed. I suffered through the entire story to be even more disappointed with the ending. Do not waste your time or money!!!
