Publisher's Summary

Jewel used to be content with being a ride or die chick, playing Bonnie while the men in her life played Clyde. But now she realizes that it was her connections and street smarts that helped her man, Calico, rise to the top, and Jewel wants to be the one in control. She's tired of taking orders from men.

She's willing to do anything to be queen of the streets, but when a deal she makes with the enemy comes back to haunt her, her dream is turned into a nightmare. Hopeless and struggling to keep her head above water, Jewel meets Misty, who seems to be her savior. They quickly form a bond, but when that bond is broken and the mist turns to rain, Jewel finds herself in the middle of a storm that she might not make it out of.

unconvincing tale of street life

Touch & Jewel are flossing with money. They are described as "doing it big". Yet when they break up, Touch says he's broke & Jewel can't pay her bills. Sasha is still envious of who and what she thinks Jewel is or has. Calico gets arrested again while using a fake id. Touch's over reaction to Papo saying "ask your bitch what's up" was ridiculous. Jewel is duped by an overly friendly woman that is obvious to everyone is not on the up & up. Jewel the woman who games men and women has been gamed in books 1 & 2, but people who are not street smart either. The characters come across as "playing" at being in the "game". This story should have been a stand alone with fleshed out characters and real movement. I'm going to listen to book 3 to see how this wraps up, but that's the OCD in me that has to know how things end. It is not because I am invested in any of the unstable characters in this unconvincing story.

zzz

The male narrator gets on my nerves with his “aye” and “um” before every sentence. The storyline is dull and predictable. all the characters claim street smarts but continuously get deceived. boring.

I knew it!

I had figured for some time that something wasn't right with Misty, and by the time the book was over I was at a loss for words. Ready to see how it all ends in part 3

I love the way iikane brought the book to life and I loved the sound effects she used. I like the story of the book cause it kept you interested from the beginning to end. Can’t wait to read the 3rd book.

Typical

The writing was elementary. The story was predictable. I wasted some time listening to this. I made it to the end but I was frustrated the whole time. Yep, that was my fault.
