Publisher's Summary

Can the daughter of a notorious drug kingpin be just as bold and bad as her daddy was? Candice Hardaway is about to find out in this exciting street tale!

When Candy arrives home from school to find her entire family murdered, she turns to the only one she trusts, her uncle, Joseph "Rock" Barton. Rock's a reclusive hitman and "cleaner" who's been in service to Candy's father for years. He takes her in, and together they vow to avenge the murders. When she turns 18, her plans go into effect as she knocks off all her father's enemies, one by one, going up against some of the most dangerous killers in the game. But has she put her trust in the right hands? Or is she destined to face the same grisly fate as the rest of her family?

A good book with great twist

I did like the book overall. The narrator was very good. The book started off a little ruff. Then candy took over. The book ended up being a good book. I would recommend the book. The end has many twist.

Great story

This was a great story, there were a few points in the story that didn't seem feasible, but for the most part very well written. The narrator was great except for the yelling. I'm not sure if this was the narrators fault or the fault of the production company, but it about blew out my eardrums more than once. A listener shouldn't have to lower and raise the volume of a book because of yelling and screaming. If the author hadn't done such a good job with the book I would have opted out of book two, because of the yelling that was done in the book. Spoiler alert book two has just as much yelling and screaming as book one, so beware.

Mental illness

This was a great story about mental illness and how the government control what they want. I’m glad Candy got the truth but what’s going to happen with her and Tuck? I need part 2 because this was great

Is It Really Real! PERFECT combination!

I am a big fan of author A. A.'s books and her audio books and one of my favorite favs Narrator is N.S. but Amaleka McCall...girl you are the truth!!! I am an author of 8 street books and a few children's books and I always seem to be able to figure any book's ending and the who did its midway. BUT NOOOOO! Not this one. STUPENDOUSLY written...plotted. I wish I could explain how but this would be a spoiler readers/listeners would have my head on a platter for revealing.
Great Character building....detailed enough to picture each character and Nikki you sure brought each to life, with their signature tones/voices. AMAZING! especially because there were quite a few characters.
It has been a while since I have written a review but this deserved accolades 👏🙌👍👌❤. This storyline was well thought out...u left just enough hints to make a person believe they had the ending mapped out but not enough to be right. Just enough given so that you still read slowly to make sure and not skim through or speed ahead to hear the ending. Gurl you are diabolical ...keep that pen inked... finger tips tapping...
Nikki I will be hitting up a few author friends to tap u on the shoulder...u are a beast!!!!

Riveting

Difficult to listen to and impossible not to continue with. "Hard Candy" by Amaleka McCall is difficult to swallow yet good to savoir. Not your regular plot ... not your regular twist... nothing about this audiobook is predictable. A gem.
