Publisher's Summary

Set in Virginia and Georgia, The Streets Keep Calling is about the choices one makes in order to survive, even if it could mean losing everything.

Breeze is an ex–drug dealer and just did a five-year bid, and now he wants to have a normal life with the love of his life and his children. He is determined to stay on the straight and narrow, so he follows all the probationary rules, working full time as a janitor. But when the pressure becomes too much to handle, he goes back to what he knows best.

Breeze thinks everything is under control and that he is the happiest man alive, that is until he realizes that his happiness is gained at someone else’s expense. How Breeze reconciles his life will have listeners riveted.

Great read

I liked the book it definitely appealed to my street side. Although it was hard for me to keep a straight face every time the reader would try to do a females voice. The ending wasn't my favorite and I felt like there could have been way more action maybe a part 2 would be good.

Pass on this one

Normally I love Chunichi’s books but this one was no good. The narrator was terrible! The story was just...stupid. Don’t waste your time or money on this book.

Pretty good

I did enjoy the book. But it was to short. I could relate to trixie as a ride or die chick. Overall pretty good.

Outstanding and Addictive

Typically, I don't even consider reading or listening to what I call "street thug stories." However, the good reviews, the cover photo, and Mr. Spears' voice caused me to make an exception. I am glad I did. The story was so well-put together that I couldn't stop listening. I loved the unpredictable twists and turns and the way Chunichi perfectly developed the characters. I was totally immersed in the story within the first five minutes. Also, the narrator is one of the best I have ever heard in the 10 plus years I have been listening to an average of one audiobook per month. I don't even have words to describe Mr. Spears' talent. I am looking forward to hearing more from Chunichi and Mr. Spears, especially as a duo.

Bobby Spears Voice...I can listen to him all day

What did you love best about The Streets Keep Calling?

I felt like I was apart of the book. It really draws you in.

What did you like best about this story?

Every thing

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

His voice was perfect for this role.. sexy with an edge to it. I felt like he was speaking directly to me at times. He made the story really come to life.

Who was the most memorable character of The Streets Keep Calling and why?

Breeze of course and Taneisha

Any additional comments?

At first I didn't like the way the book ended but when I thought about it the story was REAL .. no fairytale. One of the first books that I've read in a while where the story wasn't a cliché ending.
