I've lost my grandmother to a heart attack, the house to foreclosure, and now I'm living in Chicago with a man I swear is cheating on me. I thought he was my soul mate but I was wrong, and now I feel…I just feel…. 

"I love this book…I couldn't put this book down!"

"This book was a good read that I did not want to end! This book had my heart racing!" 
-Cecilia (reader/reviewer) 

When that man put his hands on me I can't take living with him anymore. I deice to move in with my best friend Jaylen for a while. He's a business owner with bills and problems of his own I need him. I just can't go back to my apartment with that man who i thought loved me. One look at my bruises tells me that love was wrong. 

"Omg this book was a pleasant surprise." 


  • It’s okay

    I read this book in less than two hours. The author should work on style and complexity of her writing. Also the book ended very weird. She need to be more concise in her writing.
  • Waste of time

    By StargazerStacey
    I am an avid reader and I go into withdrawals if I don’t have something to read. I chose this book because it was free and I’d hoped to be pleasantly surprised by reading it. I was not. It was your run-of-the-mill “hood” story. Typical light skinned/long haired damsel in distress story. Bored.

    I enjoyed the book. I admit I didn’t want to stop reading. I just wish the ending was better or there was a part 2. There’s so many questions left unanswered.
  • Nice Read

    It was a fast and good read, but I never like to see misspellings in a novel. Nadine Powell
