Ace Robison rules the streets of the South. With serious, legit and illegal business running in his name, he is a man with his ear always planted to the ground. Nobody even sneezes without him knowing. His business depends on it. However, when a girl sets him up, he is ready to put a bullet between her eyes. Except, he immediately realizes he's got the wrong girl. And she now knows who he is. He should kill her anyway. But there's a bright sparkle in her eye that draws him to her.
Paris Robinson has her life set out. She's to finish college and start the journey to her dream business, Just an Xpression. And she'd be damned if anything got in the way of that. Or at least that's what she thought... Until everything goes sideways when she is kidnapped by a kingpin with his eyes set on her blood. But there's something about his aura that brings contentment and a deep sense of calm in her heart. Even when he has her at gunpoint.
Mila James enjoys a lavish life as the creme of society. But the arrogance of her success oozes from her like a nasty joke. She lives life riding her high horse, looking down on the "little" people until karma serves her with her own medicine. Her life comes crashing down, and she loses all her high profile friends, forcing her to start over from scratch. However, life throws a curve ball at her when she ends up working for a handsome boss who sets her life back on the right path.
Bryson "Black" Webb is the hottest man in town. He is every woman's desire and every man's idol. A successful real estate business owner with a feel for the streets and original hood personality, Black is a rich man in his prime. And swooning ladies are at the bottom of his list of priorities. But when of one the ladies who work with his confront him with a less than colorful personality, His priorities slowly begin to shift.
A handsome man riddled with endless responsibilities... A dazzling lady in the prime of her years, brimming with hopes and dreams for a bright future. Who knew that one night of passionate pleasure would lead to so many complications? Horatio "Heavy" Wright's pride won't let him back away from taking care of his future child. And Shai Abrams has to adapt to the ways of the hood, and all the added baggage that comes packaged as Heavy.
Drama intricately weaves its sticky threads through every crevice of the new, unlikely couple. But at the end of the day, it's really up to them to decide what kind of life they want to have. Heavy is ready to give his whole life to Shai. But he knows far too well that to Shai, he'll always be too hood for her. And besides, how could they possibly make it with all of life's jagged daggers catapulting their way at all angles imaginable?
Remy Mosely values herself and treats her body like the temple that it is. She has never been touched by any man, saving herself for the right one. At some point, she thought Demonte would be that man. But he turns out to be a monster, unleashing agony and misery in her life, the likes she has never felt before. But just as she tumbles to her lowest pit, Supreme Carter comes into the picture. And, suddenly, Remy's thinking there's hope for her yet.
Supreme Carter is a legend in the streets. He has just come out of incarceration, having served time without doing the crime. He was framed. And now that he is out, he thirsts for revenge. Bitten once, he trusts no one. No one except his old best friend, who built an empire out of the bounties of their past deals. But Supreme's concrete walls come tumbling the day he lays his eyes on Remy. But can Remy withstand the way of the streets in a relationship laced with danger, ratchet exes and hood drama at every turn?
Up at the top spot in this category is the second installment of the Loyal To His Love Series. Asim and Kyori are on the verge of building something phenomenal together. Their relationship is blooming like it has never had before. Asim knows far too well that trust and transparency as the fundamental pillars of any relationship. But he is forced to destroy those pillars when a life-and-death fiasco forces him to maintain a secret.
Asim's older brother Amir has gotten himself in the middle of a raging hood war. And when he gets shot, Asim gets sucked into the drama to protect their family name and to ensure that this never happens again. He finds himself in a world of guns and swooning women, throwing themselves at him at every turn. He could never tell Kyori of all this. Not yet, at least.
Deep down, Asim knows that the love he shares with Kyori can withstand any storm and that he would forgive, should the roles be reversed. But would Kyori return the favor?
