Publisher's Summary

Knocked up by a Southern preacher, Keyshia is sent to live with her aunt in New York, but after a horrific act of violence, the timid young woman becomes ice-cold - turning tricks and finding comfort in a crack vial.

Clyde and his two brothers find themselves living with a family friend after their mother is shot by their own father - leaving her institutionalized and unable to communicate, and him behind bars. Clyde's older brother leads a decent life, working as a bank manager and trying to keep Clyde off the streets, but Clyde's younger bro is the coldest killer in Harlem and takes every opportunity to involve Clyde in his infamous robberies turned blood baths.

When Keyshia and Clyde meet, they are instantly drawn to each other. Forced to pay back a large sum of cash to one nasty Harlem kingpin or risk the lethal consequences, Keyshia and Clyde use their tight game and their loyalty to pull off the impossible. And when Clyde is falsely accused of a bank hit, Keyshia vows to stick by her man - no matter the cost.

What the Critics Say

"Treasure Blue continues and solidifies his position as the true heir to Iceberg Slim and Donald Goines. A book full of gritty realism, violence, drug abuse, and hope; the book is simply off the damn hook!" (African American Literary Book Club)

    "don't let the title fool you!!"

    This book was so amazing and had a lot of life learning experiences. Definitely loved it from start to finish. Can't wait to read Harlem girl lost.

    "Treasure E Blue is capable of much more"

    I had been eager to read this book ever since I read and loved Harlem Girl Lost many years ago. After having this book on my audible wish list for months and months, I was so disappointed when it was not anything like I had expected! I did not intend to compare this book to Harlem Girl Lost as I read or in my review now but I just can't seem unable to help but compare the two books! First of all, this book is absolutely nothing like Harlem Girl Llost. Keisha and Clyde is a much more tame, diluted version of that vibrant, engaging book!

    Keisha and Clyde is an interesting story about two characters and their immediate families. Although this book is well written and the character's stories are interesting, there were very few exciting or gripping scenes in this book. Additionally, there were very few, possibly no characters that were extraordinary or exceptionally interesting. Mr. Blue is capable of writing compelling, gripping characters and scenes so we do get a few of those in this book but very few; in such a lengthy book, I felt that a lot more was needed. The talent is there, maybe I just chose the wrong book? Hopefully the next book I read/listen to by Mr. Treasure E. Blue will be much more upbeat and juicy!

    "Amazing writer!"

    This is not just another urban novel that to get your sexual kicks. This is a true love story that shows you real black love.

    "This book was awesome,,,,,,,,,,,,,"
    Where does Keyshia and Clyde rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Keyshia and Clyde rank number one. I love a good urban/love story with a good ending.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best part was when Keyshia got her life together for herself, her family and her man.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where the mother came into the court room to testify for her sons, such a sad scene but yet happy scene.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I would keep the same, such a great name for this book, nothing needs to be changed. I like the narrator Mirron Willis, but would love to have a female read the female parts.


    Any additional comments?

    I Iove this new author, audible need to add more of his books.

    Story
    "Love is amazing"
    What did you love best about Keyshia and Clyde?

    Keyshia and Clyde show you that before you move forward you have to mend the past. Clyde had to face his unanswered questions and painful feels w/his dad and Keyshia had to face several childhood issues that injured emotionally and mentally, no matter how painful.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Keyshia and Clyde?

    1) Clyde teaching Keyshia to use a firearm 2) Clyde facing his father 3) Keyshia voluntarily building a relationship w/her, future mother-in-law.


    What about Mirron Willis’s performance did you like?

    He gave each character so much definition. He truly puts so much life and energy into the narrating/story telling. Made me look for more of his work.


    Who was the most memorable character of Keyshia and Clyde and why?

    Clyde's mother, b/c during the story even when she didn't speak, she had you feel what she was going thru due to struggles w/ her past. Especially at the court she really came out and had you feel her anger which eventually prospered into joy.


    Any additional comments?

    Truly a life like story.

    What did you love best about Keyshia and Clyde?

    I like the fact that Keyshia took her street smarts and usd them to help get her man out of jail. Which goes to show that if you can concoct an illegal scheme, you can concoct a legal one.

    "OMG TREASURE BLUE!!!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Keyshia and Clyde to be better than the print version?

    I ordered this book thinking it would be a normal romance about a thug.. Treasure Blue shoked the hell out of me with Suga Bear.....I have to give him a standing ovation and 5 stars. In each book he winds and twist the books so perfectly that you have no choice except be hooked......I would most def. recommend this book!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Keyshia and Clyde?

    When Keyshia saved Clyde from suga bear and he sucks his own......****


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

    Made you envision the story as it was told. I could visualized.


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    I love it!!!

    "LOVED IT!!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Keyshia and Clyde the most enjoyable?

    How u can imagine what's really going on!!!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well of course it would Keyshia AND Clyde and the love they had for each other.


    If you could rename Keyshia and Clyde, what would you call it?

    The Urban Romeo & Juliet


    Any additional comments?

    After getting past Keyshia's accent abd how she talk, I really enjoyed this book. I was shocked as to what really happened Clyde and his brothers mother. I don't wanna give anything away for those who haven't listened.....but u will not be disappointed!!!!!
