Publisher's Summary

Take a look inside the lives of three close friends. Dre and Hassan have been robbing convenience stores and small banks together since high school, but they share something else in common other than making cold, hard cash: their love for Nikki.

The stakes are high after the trio takes on a scheme that unexpectedly sets off a chain of deadly events. With greed, betrayal, and heartache pulling them all in separate directions, will they be able to overcome it all? Or will their very foundation crumble beneath lust, lies, and deception?

Great read!!!

This book was so good. Dre messed around on his girl with one of her family members and got upset when she returned the favor. I wasn't expecting the ending, I didn't see that coming. I really hope it's gonna be a part 2!

I actually really liked this book!

I was a little concerned at first because there wasn't any reviews at all om this book. At first, when I started listening the narrator read too fast to the point where I had to start the book over twice. But about 4 or so chapters later I was all into it and the narrator calmed down and became the characters. Actually a pretty good narrator at that. Book was really good alot of action, twists and deep betrayals! Drama just how I like it!! Will keep you entertained and the ending is crazy but was left to be continued by a second book. Great story!!

WOW

Great story with shiesty friends and family...no need for enemies. Narrator had a great voice, but should have rerecorded his errors and shortened the pauses between chaoters.

Drama 3x

I enjoyed the story line. The book started out fast & continued an emotional roller coaster. I really liked Haans 😩 he was my favorite character...so that ending really threw me & unexpected!
