Publisher's Summary

Multi-platinum rapper Devin has it all. Money, cars, fame, women - he’s living the life of a rockstar. As with anything in life, all good things come to the end of its cycle, and God takes you off of a path so that you can begin anew. 

Devin stops getting booked for shows, and it causes a ripple affect on his life. Now unable to take care of his family, he turns to heavy drug use to take his mind off of the pain. When the money stops flowing, all of the love that he thought was genuine doesn’t exist at all. Scandal after scandal surfaces on all of the major blog sites; allegations and rumors, liens from the IRS, and now rumors of his ties to murder for hire plots has him mentally defeated. It’s just him against the world until he meets and helps Ashlon when she, too, was down and out.

A good girl with problems of her own, Ashlon understands him in a way that nobody else cares to. She vows to do all she can to help him the same way that he helped her when nobody else would. The question is...can Devin escape his spiraling rollercoaster of drug and alcohol addiction enough to help himself? Can he defeat his demons and pull back to reality long enough to accept help? Or will the devil continue to break and take him under? 

Certified tear-jerker based on a true story. This is a story of addiction and redemption; of overcoming some of life’s most overwhelming obstacles with the help of God and his most qualified angels.

It was ok

I know we all go through stuff in life and I appreciate the author sharing his story. Not taking anything from his experiences but the story could have been better. It's listenable though.

Broken crayons still color

This was the best listening ever. As a person who has been impacted by addiction and the criminal justice system as well, what I have learned is that is order to keep it you must give it away. By sharing your journey you have begun the healing process. Our disease takes advantage of our humanness and waits to attack at our lowest point. Each time you face an urge and overcome it , you become stronger and more prepared for the next round. Addiction is an everyday process. One day ,one minute at a time. Never sleep. Acknowledge them as they arise and keeping giving praise to your higher power and stand tall. thank you for your strength. Hope to meet you one day. Looking
Forward to part II.
