Vanessa Jackson is just trying to get divorced, not pick up a new man - and certainly not her divorce attorney. Gibson Kincaid is trying to do right by his new client, but in all honestly, he wants to get Vanessa divorced...so he can have her to himself. Vanessa's not-soon-enough-to-be ex-husband, Warren, isn't ready to let go of the young, naive woman he "rescued" from a different life 10 years ago.

Every hustler's reign ends in one of two ways: prison or death. Refusing to let that prediction become a reality, Julius "Jules" Carter creates new rules to an old game. Strategically, he forms one of the most notorious drug operations Harlem has ever seen. Jules thinks the game is his biggest challenge - until he meets Tish. Young and ambitious, Tish is determined to escape from Harlem's allure, but her love for Jules has her rooted. It isn't long before she's tangled in Julius' web of lies and deceit.

I love A&J books and was so pleased when so many were available at once but when I saw that iiKane was the narrator for most I almost cried. She is the worst. Audible please stop using her! I helped myself by slowing her down to .75x and she was then at least bearable.

Las Vegas: a city built on obscene wealth and corrupt deals, cunning entrepreneurs, and the ruthless mob. The Cartel's plan to open a casino will rake in cash, but it comes with great sacrifice. The stakes have never been this high, and the rules of the game have never been this hard to manipulate. And when one dead girl, one scorned wife, and one hole in the desert launch a chain of catastrophic events, the Cartel is sent on a downward spiral as they battle the Arabian mob and fight traitors within their circle.

In this outing, Curtis is starting over. He has a new job and a new wife, and of course he's convinced himself that this time he'll be good. But Curtis hasn't ever made a promise he could keep, and before long, he's up to his old tricks. The difference now is his third wife. She's unlike any woman Curtis has met before. And for the first time in his life, Curtis just might have met his match. Watch the sparks fly!

As far as she is concerned, her estranged husband set her back and off course over a decade ago. Now, she has reclaimed her sense of hope and purpose, set up a new therapy practice, bought a new home, and has finally moved on. Maybe. When a wealthy, secretive new couple she' s counseling pulls her into their very real life-and-death drama, and her long-lost husband' s whereabouts can no longer be ignored, Sienna realizes the truth about what has kept her emotionally frozen and fragile - it' s fear.
