Publisher's Summary

In the little city of Flint, Michigan, the good die young, and the people left standing are the grimiest of characters. With reign over the city's drug trade, Benjamin Atkins made sure that his precious daughter, Raven, was secluded from the grit that the city had to offer. But when Raven's young heart gets claimed by Mizan, a stick-up kid in search of a come-up, there's nothing Benjamin can do about losing her to the streets. She chooses love over loyalty and runs off with Mizan, but her new role as wifey soon proves to be more than she can handle.

Puppy love always feels right, but things turn stale, and Raven soon finds that everyone she loves has disappeared. All she has is Mizan, but when hugs and kisses turn to bloody lips and black eyes, she realizes that Mizan is not who she thought he was.

Raven becomes desperate for a way out, but this time Daddy can't save her. Every time she finds the courage to leave, fear convinces her to stay. Like a moth to a flame, Raven is drawn to Mizan even though she knows he'll be the death of her.

When the hood life she chose becomes unbearable, and the only way out is in a coffin, what will she do?

    "Great Listen!!!!!!"
    Have you listened to any of Nicole Small’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have listened to the title "The Prada Plan" and both books are great.


    Any additional comments?

    The storyline is great. However, if Raven was near me I would definitely give her a beating after all the things that happened to her she kept faithful to the guy which did not desire her. Overall great book.

    Story
    "Book was a little difficult to listen to."

    As always Ashely Antoinette is an awesome writer and Nicole Small is an excellent narrator but I struggled through this book. The repeated bad decisions of Raven – the going back and forth to an abusive, disrespectful, manipulating, and murdering man....WTF!!!! The first couple of times I could chop Ravens bad decisions to being inexperienced and young minded, but you would think after Raven found out that Mizan was behind all of the madness and disarray in her life (her parents, etc) she would be stronger than ever and not let a grimy man (or anyone) negatively influence her. I would have rather read that Raven went after revenge and put a cold barrel to Mizan temple in the end. I don't usually write this long of a review and I apologize if I sound a little stiff but this book was more personal for me because my own mother was very much like Raven…frail minded until her death. There's a lesson in this book....please take heed to it!!!!!

    Story
    "BITTER SWEET"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes....this book will have your blood pressure up from all the actions and Raven being so DUMB. But reality is that it's someone out there like Raven and we are walking in her shoes and trying to understand the reason behind everyone's actions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ethic - he's a real man, loving and caring<br/>


    What about Nicole Small’s performance did you like?

    I always love Nicole Small's voice. She make all books come to life as though I'm part of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Ashley whyyyyy…….I’m over here crying! I really wanted Raven to finally live the life she greatly deserved. My heart breaks for Morgan for losing everyone in her family including Ethic and his children. I did not want this book to end this way…..I’m devastated!!! Overall, I really love the book. Maybe Ashley can change some things (crossing fingers) as though Raven did not really die because I would love to hear more about Ethic and Raven.
