Publisher's Summary

It's a dog-eat-dog world - especially when all the dogs are hungry.

For a sheltered mama's boy like Demarcus, everything was coming up roses until a life-changing experience showed him that every rose has thorns. After a well-orchestrated set-up, Demarcus' plans to go to college are derailed by a trip to state prison. It is while in the belly of the beast that the mama's boy has to make the choice between being a man - or being a victim.

Upon his release, Demarcus tries to get his life back on track, but his felony conviction causes door after door to be slammed in his face. Going to college is no longer an option, and flipping burgers is not in his plans. With little other choice, Demarcus applies the lessons he learned in prison and takes to the streets, where he gets caught up in selling heroin, known on the streets as dog food. When all hell breaks loose between the major dealers in Memphis, over the city's heroin distribution, Demarcus finds himself on the losing side of a bloody drug war. As he prepares for the showdown with his opposition, he begins to uncover truths about his past, including what happened that fateful night of his arrest.

To add insult to injury, when he finally stands face-to-face with his enemy, he discovers that the face is a familiar one. They say that blood is thicker than water, but when it comes to cash, sometimes even those closest to you will try to do you in.

Totally enjoyed it.......Good read

I had no idea what the heck dog food was, now I know, but no idea why its called that. Good guy - bad/guy - family controversy - but family is still family. Love and loss and rebound partners, hustlers and people trying to come up on others coat tails, secrets and lies.

Chock full of good juicy substance. I really enjoyed the book. I was rooting for Demarcus.

Yup, I recommend. Great writing style, easy to follow and sucks you in, quickly.

Nothing Small about Nicole's skills

Job well done by both the author and narrator! I'm looking forward to part 2. I am a Kwan fan...as I search for my next read I stumbled upon part2 (which is presented by Kwan) but didn't want to read it before reading this. I am so glad I did! You won't be disappointed, in fact you will have to know what happens next!

Better Than I Expected!!!

I never know what to expect with my included books. This was GOOD!! I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. This is definitely one of the better hood novels that I’ve listened to. The storyline is very believable. Book 2 here I come. Great Job Raynesha Pittman!!

Written like all other urban books.

Wish they would learn to write these types of books better. They are all the same story.

Better than the second one

Really good read. Loved the narrating. The second is really hard to get into. I dont like the narration. She's a bore.
