Publisher's Summary

She wanted to be a hip-hop star, but the streets got in the way.

Have you ever laid down with a man and wasn’t sure if you’d ever get back up? Tossed the sheets with a bone-knocking fear that only a hard-core hustler could produce? Sexed him like your life depended on it because, in reality, it did? You still with me? Then let's roll over to my house. Harlem. 145th Street. Grab a seat and brace yourself as I show you the kind of pain that street life and so-called success can bring.

Nineteen-year-old Candy Raye Montana, an ex-drug runner for the Gabriano crime family and a former foster child, dreams of becoming a hip-hop superstar, if only someone would discover her talents.

And someone does. Mega music producer and king thug of Harlem Junius "Hurricane" Jackson, CEO of the House of Homicide recording studio, cuts a deal and puts Candy on the stage. Suddenly she is a hot new artist on the notorious Homicide Hitz record label. Her career takes off and she blazes the charts, but it's not long before Candy realizes that the man she thought was her knight is nothing more than a cold-blooded nightmare.

Caught between the music and the madness, between the dollars and the deals, Candy belongs to Hurricane - body and soul - and must endure his sadistic bedroom desires while keeping his sexual secrets hidden from the world. But Candy has some strong desires of her own that simply cannot be denied, especially when she finds herself turned on by a brilliant investment baller who just happens to be Hurricane's right-hand man. Candy longs for her freedom, but if Hurricane gets wind of her betrayal the blowback will be lethal.

Critic Reviews

"Raw, in your face, and straight from the street. Urban erotica has never been hotter!" (Nikki Turner, New York Times bestselling author)
"Noire skillfully mixes gritty, in-your-face urban drama with a healthy dose of raw sexuality. Candy Licker proves that Noire is a force to be reckoned with in the urban erotic genre." (Urban Reviews)
"If there was ever any doubt that pulp was alive and thriving, Noire’s highly sexy, highly vivid G-Spot dispelled it. This follow-up delivers everything that lovers of this emerging micro genre - black urban erotic chick lit - are coming to expect.... Candy’s first person and Knowledge's third begin to alternate chapters: both are completely absorbing and rarely miss. The cast of bling and trash extras are well-done and well-named." (Publishers Weekly)

Not an erotic tale

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is a very disapointing erotic book. In fact, it's not erotic at all. This is the story of a poor girl who dream of becoming an artist. Sometimes, she's having sexual intercourse with people. It fails as an erotic book and it's not a very interesting ''regular'' book either.

Poor Girl

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend this book to a friend but it would not be top on my list. I like a good story where it is not all fairy tales but I needed a little more elaboration on the good stuff since the main character went through so much bad stuff.

If you’ve listened to books by Noire before, how does this one compare?

This is my first Noire book that I listened too.

What about Nicole Small’s performance did you like?

Nicole Small has a very smooth voice. I really like the life she brings to the different characters.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Actually the story line would be a good movie story line so I would have to say yes.

Similar storyline

It was a decent book but if you've read G-Spot, the storyline and ending is kinda the same. The abuse is the worst but not a bad listen.
