Publisher's Summary

Malaya Ipswich is stuck in a marriage that she describes as pure hell. Her husband, Trent, is nothing short of a man whore, and he shows no compassion to his wife or devotion to their marriage. 

After years of contemplating a divorce, Malaya is swept off of her feet by a young, sexy thug. Oblivious to the fact that this thug has a motive of his own, she is caught up in a deadly love triangle. She soon learns that the grass is not greener on the other side, and no one is really who they say they are.

Javon Sanders is a young goon with a deadly past that catches up with him when he is charged with multiple crimes. Being the con artist that he is known to be, he weasels himself into his lawyer’s life with no good intentions. Things take a turn for the worse when tragedy hits his family, and Javon becomes desperate. No one is safe in his world, and he ends up betraying the one person who was in his corner.

This definitely was not what I was expecting. i was expecting the lead to fall for her side piece-not his bedroom skills. She fell in love with an opportunity to use some to remove a thorn in her side. The title implies she fell in love with her side piece….
The story was riddled with inconsistencies whether it be timeline, statements the characters made about themselves or in a reference to a situation. How can a character be in the hospital and at a hotel for you to bump into them at the same time. Are you a tough, educated, calculating criminal attorney or are you a low budget, neck swiveling “hood rat”? Are you the king of the streets or are you naïve as newcomer to the game that can’t spot a setup? The timeline was pretty fluid as well as the personality of the characters. The mentality of the leads in this book was very sophomoric in such a way that you immediately could not take the description of “high powered criminal lawyer and street king” seriously. These things couple with the grammatical errors and lack of structure made for a difficult read. I’m sure the author is talented. I think I will try one of her other works. This story didn’t “gel”.

surprising

I like that there was a twist, but how did we get there? the story wasn't bad, and it wasn't great either, too many unanswered questions, but not enough for a sequel... So, why be so vague?

Narration is Trash.

This probably had the potential to be a good book however I couldn’t get past the poor narrations. From the awkward inflections and the misplaced pauses, to the overly aggressive reading manner throughout the entire story, I just couldn’t get into it. I couldn’t tell if it was a man and a woman narrating or if the woman was doing a poor impression of a man but it was terrible. And the random punching sound effects out of nowhere took me completely out!!! Lol it was out of place, comical, and very unbelievable. Although I suffered through this bad narration until the end (since I actually paid for it and wanted to give it a fighting chance), I think that’s when I just completely checked out.

May I Have My Money Back?

This story was weak and contrived. It's like the author couldn't decide how the story should progress, so she was just writing. iiKane is honestly one of my most favorite narrators but I hated the way she read this book. Just throw the whole thing away.

Raunchy, Realistically Raw and Riveting.

So this is my first read by this author and I didn't think I would like it by the way it started off, but boy did it rope me in quickly. Malaya is a treacherous attorney and person in a lot of respects. I wasn't sure if I was ever actually rooting for her to get what she was after or not, but the plot twists were good enough that I was kept guessing through much of the book, even though I predicted some aspects of it. It was unexpectedly Really good.
