Publisher's Summary

In Honey's debut novel, a man must learn how to cope with his wife's heroine addiction while raising two daughters and being the mayor of Atlanta.

Atlanta's mayor, The Honorable Josiah J. Bishop, has an addiction to his wife, Mink, that is just as powerful as her toxic love affair with heroin. As her life spirals out of control due to her obsession with the needle, his love and devotion to her is slowly shredding his soul into tiny pieces. But he just can't let her go. The brotha's loyalty to the love of his life and the mother of his two young, adorable daughters is deeper than any ocean. No matter how far Mink drags Josiah down into the murkiness of drugs, booze, and danger on the streets of the ATL, he's determined to love, cherish, and honor her until death. He's hooked on her. It's just that simple. 

The only thing Mink is faithful to is her next fix. She'll cop it wherever she can and by any means, trying desperately to escape from the secret demons of her past that haunt her daily. Mink's troubled soul remains a prisoner of addiction, twirling violently like a tornado and destroying everything in its path. Not even the love of a good man can set her free from emotional bondage. 

As Election Day approaches, Josiah's bid to serve a second term in City Hall is jeopardized when Mink commits her most heinous act. The media is going wild to cover the tragic murder and robbery of one of Mink's fellow addicts, a wealthy and prominent Hollywood filmmaker who was more than generous to her after she left yet another treatment facility. 

She's on the run from justice, ignoring Josiah's pleas to turn herself in. Mink realizes that she's at the end of her rope, but Josiah isn't sure if he has any more forgiveness in his heart for his wife. He will always love her, but finally, he desires love in return. His addiction to Mink has blinded him of that one basic need all this time. 

Now Josiah has a decision to make. Will he stay in the clutches of addiction to the drug called Mink? Or will he kick the habit once and for all and free himself forever?

amazing

this was an amazingly written book. I was completely enthralled with this love story from beginning to end. the ending was surprising, and felt fictional. it's never really that easy, but it was warm and very needed for the character in this story. I loved it!!!

Don't waste your credit/money.

Skip this book. Really good guy (mayor) marries a crackhead. Crackhead does crackhead things. Guy takes her back. She does it again. He takes her back. She does it again. He considers a different love interest. Takes her Back. Her crackhead ways interfere with his re-election (oh-no!) More crackhead antics. He takes her back. Oopp she kills someone. He tried to take he back but she's in jail now. Hooks up with the potential love interest. See, there you read it.

Mayor Bishop

I love Mayor Bishop is wonderful. Everyone woman wants a man like JoJo. Hello his brother would be okay as well. I listened to every book Dylan Ford narrates, his voice is awesome. The book is very good from the beginning to the end. I truly recommend this book. Enjoy.

Addicted

This book never stopped giving me highs and lows with the unbreakable love Josiah had for Mink. In the end, they each got what they deserved and needed.

A must read but not by a narrator

The story is excellent,. The narrator that performed normally does amazing performances, but this was not one of those.
