Publisher's Summary

Ethic has power, but love has always been evasive. After ordering the hit that mistakenly killed the love of his life, Ethic is haunted with guilt and refuses to love again. Focused on being a better man and keeping his family safe, he is raising three children, one of which is a defiant teenage girl, Morgan. No matter how hard he tries to keep Morgan away from the streets, she is determined to defy him. When Morgan finds herself in a vulnerable position, Ethic is pulled back into the deadly game where he was once king.

In this explosive spin-off to Ashley Antoinette's Moth to a Flame, you will fall in love with Ezra Okafor, a.k.a. Ethic, as he gambles on love and in the streets in hopes that this time he will win.

WORTH THE WAIT CCHHIILLLEEE!!!!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Ethic to be better than the print version?

THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING , SHE PULLS YOU IN HER BOOKS AND MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE APART OF THE SCENARIOS. THE EMOTIONS THAT I FEEL, I HAVE TO CONSTANTLY REMIND MYSELF THAT THIS IS A FICTIONAL STORY. IM ATTACHED TO MESSIAH AND MORGAN STORY. AND DESPITE ETHIC FLAWS MY HEART ACHES FOR HIM. I TRULY HOPE LOVE CONQUERS ALL

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ethic?

ALL OF THEM !

What does iiKane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

THE DIFFRENT PERSONALITIES AND CHARACTERS VOICES ARE AMAZING

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Any additional comments?

I did not finish the book!

Maybe there should be a category for teens and young adults. I personally do not find the explicit description of young girls sexual encounters entertainment! Especially considering the characters encounters involve older men! I tolerated it in the first book but this book seems to be along the same lines so I am going to return it. Also there was no mention in the first book that Morgan was deaf and there was no mention that she was jealous of her sister!

Whatever happened to just regular love stories??? I certainly enjoy the drama in a story but the lines have to be drawn somewhere!

Storyline was good but made up sequel.

Let me first say that I usually love this author but she slipped up with this sequel. In book 1 (Moth to a flame) Mo was an outgoing, talking, hearing able little girl. But, this book starts with Mo being a deaf mute, and says she's been that way since birth. How is That? If she wasn't in book 1? Also there is no mention on how, when, why Ethic moved to Flint. Story just starts out with him living there. Was a lot of unexplained differences from where Moth to a flame ended.
The narrator did a good job with voice changes and giving each character there own flare BUT, the pauses were way to long and way to many. It was so annoying and frustrated, so many times I kept looking at my phone to see if I paused the book or something (That's how long the pauses were after every 3 or 4 sentences.)
Now that ALL the negative I feel is spelled out, let me say the positive.
The storyline is good, kept me interested and wanting to see what happens next. From trifling fake friends to hard core gangsters having a soft side, this book touches bases with them all. I was laughing at times and crying at times. If you don't get caught up with facts from book 1 not adding up in this book, and you get passed the annoying pauses so often and long, this book will be a great listen in my opinion.
Can't wait for book 3....but PLEASE Mrs. Antoinette don't change up things with the characters that weren't in this book. And please let the narrator not pause SO Much and SO LONG in Ethic 2.

Ethic did not disappoint!

Ashley Antoinette is talented beyond explanation. I spent a week trying to find a free book to download then saw Ethic available and bought 3 credits without blinking. I LOVE her books and this one is now one of my favorites. I can’t wait for part 2! I’m glad I was listening by myself because she made a gangster cry for real!

Good book.

Good book, the story line is a little too much. Killing a child and then sleeping with the mother. Not my favorite part.
