Publisher's Summary

Two Tonio Francos. TJ and Franco. One on a stage. One in a cage. Both in a rage.   

TJ. Falling for Kamara Day. On a college campus gone cray. The seniors caught in the culture war crossfire. TJ himself on fire. Burning in five different directions like he’s all of One Direction. Big brother to Kyd. Fraternity VP. Intern in NYC. Rappin to Drag’s beats. And. That f***ing demon he can’t defeat. The one pushing him to the ledge. At Jersey’s northeastern edge. Hoboken. The kid about to jump. No jokin. Haunted by many things. Especially THE Thing. Seven years lingering. Infecting. Tingling. Battling that other force. That one that makes him come alive. When he sees the girl with the golden eyes....   

Kamara Day. The hipster scene queen. Her conscience clean. Already sorted through her childhood drama. No longer bothered by her father. No longer mixed up about her mixed race. But. Those dates with TJ in the moonlight. The choir girl dreaming of the limelight. Of singing as he rhymes tight. Ya know, if the spring lovers can even weather the bad weather. Cuz sometimes, it can rain all day. In NJ. And right alongside the drama of the seniors....   

That of Franco Senior’s. The retired MMA champ living with Julie and their six-year-old kid named Kyd. Somewhere in the burbs of Jersey. Yet still stompin in his old stomping grounds. Running the family fight club in Woodbridge. His up-and-comer’s upcoming match a bridge. To sponsors who could keep the club afloat. Or the Francos go broke. Lose everything they own. Extra motivation to reclaim the throne. As he battles. A demon of his own.   

LP Novel: (n.) Lyrical Prose novel. A novel styled lyrical. At times. In its usage of wordplay. And rhymes.

Read book one first

Franco is trying to keep the gym afloat
Tj is in college with a new girl and career stress
All the elements that made book one great are back for round 2
Smart move bringing Cary back as narrator
A must read for any hip hop fans highly recommended

I really enjoyed it! I read the first book in this series (The Streets) and enjoyed it as well. The narration was great. The author does a great job with the characters. I look forward to reading more books from this author. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
