Publisher's Summary

A crippled economy changes Lola Jones' silver-spoon status to copper and threatens to rip her sheltered family from the upper echelons of society, dropping them into the rotten bowels of East St. Louis. Only one thing can save Lola's children from the claws of poverty, and that comes in the form of a million-dollar life insurance policy. It is, however, just a useless piece of paper unless she's dead. With that in mind, Lola vows to make the ultimate sacrifice for her children's well-being. 

There are two problems - she doesn't have the guts to kill herself, and her insurance doesn't pay out on suicides. With only days left before her family learns the true meaning of homelessness, Lola turns to Blase, a desensitized hit man with a "no turning back" policy, to execute her murder. To foot Blase's upfront bill, Lola seeks prostitution. It's not long before the hole she's dug gets deeper. 

Living on the erotic edge leads her to an unforgettable sexual encounter with Mannish Major, a lonely married man with skeletons swinging in his closet. Their tryst explodes into a full-blown love affair that renews Lola's will to live. But not even a budding romance will cancel the expiration date Blase has set on Lola's soul. Now Lola and Mannish must make a final and desperate attempt to stop the hit man, or else they will die trying.

I mean Damn

interesting story. definitely kept me all on. it just kept getting more unbelievable. but how you gonna end that way ? it's 2019 and No Follow up. I'm scared to get into book s like this because I hate a Soprano style ending that leaves me with to many questions. the Narrator was great.

Good Storytelling

I enjoyed the story. I was interested enough to continue listening. But I was not able to distinguish between the voices. Both female characters were so similar that I would have to dig deep to try and not imagine them being the same person, even with the author’s description. It was the same for the male characters.

Unbelievable

This book was totally unrealistic and not in the dope boy street life unrealistic. Not sure what direction Brenda Hampton thought she was headed but this is not it. Sigh....and then to take us through all of this silliness to just end the book with so many unanswered questions just adds to the annoyance. Please do better. The last couple of books of yours that I’ve read have been terrible.

Brenda can do better

This story was so unbelievable and far fetched. I didn't care for any of the characters and Lola was a gullible idiot. Brenda lost her touch because her latest books haven't been the best.

Hated it!!! Stupid as Hell

this was the most ridiculous story I've ever read/heard. so she hires someone to kill her so her 3 minor kids can inherit a million...Really? then you become a prostitute to earn the money to pay the hit man??? just stupid all the way around .
