So after all she went through in the end she left her great job and the first step to doing something for herself for another man? When will we learn ladies! Horrible ending. No real lesson to this whole book.
Lack lustre sex scenes as well.

Once the streets pull you in, they own you. Or at least that's the way it's been for Nautica. Growing up in the hood, all she's ever known is the fast life - fast money illicitly made through scandals and relentless scheming. But when a big scam nearly finishes her off, she decides she wants more out of life than the hustle and tries to make a new life for herself on the East Coast.

Sad about the ending but if Shakespeare can do it so can we. Great performance by the narrator.

Carin Douglas is a fearless young girl, thrust into the role of a stickup kid alongside Brooklyn's most notorious thugs. She learns to fight, to survive, and to shine through a series of events that take her from a young girl on the verge to a designer-clad diva with a hot car, an even hotter man, and a million skeletons in her closet. When Carin meets Monty, aka "Money Monty", he sweeps her off her feet with one romantic gesture after another. Their urban fairytale soon erupts into passionate sex, bold power moves, and, eventually, devastating physical violence between them.

How do I know this book is good? It made you yell, get angry, cry so hard, wants to throw your phone and smile. This book brought me through every emotion known. SO incredibly well written as it truly captures domestic abuse and the trauma that people face growing up in the hood. Not only that but it explores how some relationships are just so complicated. Sometimes people hurt you beyond anything but your love never dies. This was such an amazing book and definitely on my favourites list.

However, when she meets Omari, the sexy rude boy turned DJ, things heat up quickly. Once Omari locks eyes with Kadijah, his life will never be the same, and he knows it. He is feeling the feisty American beauty, but his wife, the beautiful but fiery Angela, is having no parts of it.

Okay Mishi really put her all into this but that accident WAS NOT Jamaican. If this story took place in Trinidad or even Barbados she would have been on the money. Many times i was laughing in disbelief at the accent and choice of words. I wish audible would put more effort into hiring people who can best handle the accents.

As for the story, it was amazing. The writer was able to keep my attention and each character was developed and had their own personality.

The sex scenes were crazy and really captured the nuances of Jamaicans and sexuality.

Well done.
