Publisher's Summary

Have you ever been betrayed by those you love? Violated in the worst kind of way? And no matter how hard you tried to fight your way out of a trick bag, no matter how tall you tried to walk, did the cold streets of life lead you right back to your grimy destiny?

The bestselling author of G-Spot and Candy Licker, Noire pens the intense tale of Eva Patterson, a tragic daughter of the ghetto who finds peril on the streets of New York. With an abusive mother and a heroin monkey on her back, Eva experiences a series of traumatizing events, forcing her to flee her Brooklyn tenement and seek refuge with her beloved cousin Fiyah in Harlem.

But fate is not done wreaking havoc in Eva's life yet. Poised on the brink of progress, Eva meets King Brody, a vicious Harlem drug lord who runs Bricks, the hottest rap club in town. Unbeknownst to Eva, her cousin's thirst for glory leads him to cut a killer deal with Brody. A trade-off is arranged: Fiyah gets a recording contract - and Brody gets Eva.

The problem is, Eva already has a man: Ice Mello Williams, a hot Harlem rapper who has a bitter feud going with Fiyah and is determined to seize his recording contract.

Torn between the man she loves and a violent kingpin, Eva becomes an unwilling pawn in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Can Fiyah and Mello help her elude the sadistic jaws of Brody, or will she end up losing her life in his brutal trap?

Noire is an author from the streets of New York, a #1 Essence bestselling author, and the editor-in-chief of NoireMagazine.com.

Could and would not finish this!

Right from Chapter 1 I was questioning who could think of and write such horrific things. This book was so hard to listen to that I could not even finish it.

Tear jerker

I've listened to several of noire's books and this is by far the most touching. Towards the end I felt all of Eva's pain and tears formed in my eyes. Fuego was such a sissy, he was truly a selfish man. Mello was my fav character, he was a ride or die! My type of man! I love listening to Nicole small! She does such a great job and has such a soothing voice.

The beginning & the end was great. The middle ehhh

Would you listen to Hittin’ the Bricks again? Why?

NO! The story was at it's best at the beginning, the middle was boring & corny. It didn't get better until the last hour of the story.

Would you be willing to try another book from Noire? Why or why not?

Yes, great author. I have read a lot of her books, just this one was not my fave.

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

I love her voice. She helps me picture everything.

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

Hard knock life in Harlem.

POWERFUL!

This was the third audible I've listened to. Was doing it more for research because I'm an author and want to put my work in an audible. I'm a BIG fan of Noire. So I chose because her story lines are dope! She didn't let me down with hittin the bricks. I was in from the first word. Although as i I'm used to with her work, the tears were flowing. Noire you're awesome and you're my inspiration!
