Publisher's Summary

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, ultimately, 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 deadly skeletons in her closet. 

When Carin meets Monty, aka "Money Monty", he sweeps her off her feet with one romantic gesture after another. Monty is a sexy, powerful man with that legendary Brooklyn swagger and more money than most of his peers in the street. Their urban fairytale soon erupts into passionate sex, bold power moves, and, eventually, devastating physical violence between them. When things get explosive, Carin is reminded of the love she knows Monty feels for her and the lavish lifestyle he's showered her with. But will that be enough to save them?

Carin and Monty's love comes full circle in this epic story of love, loss, pain, and forgiveness. In Ayana Ellis' second novel, she raises the bar, exposes some ugly truths, and shines a spotlight on the painful reality of domestic abuse. All that glitters isn't gold in this new novel that is sure to have listeners talking for years to come.

Great use of a credit

This book is great! Great story, characters and lots of funny moments. I would relisten (and there’s only a few books I would do that for) can’t wait for the next book!

A trainwreck of Dumb and Dumber (spoiler)

The first 8 chapters were a book within themselves; a book that had so much disfunction and drama for a 15-17 year old girl that was just too many things. The rest of this book dragged out far too long. This seemingly "tough girl" is now this battered victim, invoking her strength at the oddest times, like fighting other women over him- but won't fight him, and also choosing (actually making the conscience choice) over and over to be a victim. Same thing, different day, claiming she can't stand the sight of him, but then is "too in love" to leave. It was one bad decision after another. And the abusers family, who who literally lives in the same building - but never intervenes. Then her family, specifically her father is so tough that he has "goons" yet no one ever approaches this abuser? This level of self inflicted drama and abuse is thankfully so far removed from me that this book was just too unrealistic for me. I do not know anyone who would be this dumb. Repeatedly choosing to stay or go back after she successfully left to that amount of abuse- when she had several ways out. The end was the illusion of "happy", so I guess that was a good thing and it held my attention because I was waiting for real redemption. Sadly, none really came. Listen at your own risk.

Kept me constantly on edge!!

This is normally not the type of book I read. At first, I was going to request a refund. However, the first chapter had me hooked. This story brought out emotions that had me all over the place. I truly loved this book!! So many life lessons contained in it. Well done!

Life of Karin

The book was truly full circle. I enjoyed how the book started off as a teenager and the book took Karin to adulthood. I was so happy for Karin, when enough was enough. Once Nina came into her life, her life took a turn for the best. Excellent book.

Just Wow

This was my first time listening to a book written by this author. I chose it based on the fact that Nicole Smalls was the narrator and the reviews were good. This is a very good read. I was in my emotions during the entire book. There is a lot of blood shed, sad moments, and dumb decisions BUT there was a silver lining in the end! I will most definitely listen to the book again.
