Description
Malaya Ipswich is stuck in a marriage that she describes as pure hell. Her husband, Trent, is nothing short of a man whore, and he shows no compassion to his wife or devotion to their marriage. After years of contemplating a divorce, Malaya is swept off of her feet by a young, sexy thug. Oblivious to the fact that this thug has a motive of his own, she is caught up in a deadly love triangle. She soon learns that the grass is not greener on the other side, and no one is really who they say they are.

Javon Sanders is a young goon with a deadly past that catches up with him when he is charged with multiple crimes. Being the con artist that he is known to be, he weasels himself into his lawyer’s life with no good intentions. Things take a turn for the worse when tragedy hits his family, and Javon becomes desperate. No one is safe in his world, and he ends up betraying the one person that was in his corner

Book Review
This definitely was not what I was expecting. I was expecting the lead to fall for her side piece-not his bedroom skills. She fell in love with an opportunity to use someone to remove a thorn in her side. The title implies she fell in love with her side piece….
The story was riddled with inconsistencies whether it be timeline or statements the characters made about themselves or in reference to a situation. How can a character be in the hospital and at a hotel for you to bump into them at the same time? Are you a tough, educated, calculating criminal attorney or are you a low budget, neck swiveling “hood rat”? Are you the king of the streets or are you na├»ve as a newcomer to the game that can’t spot a setup? The timeline was pretty fluid as well as the personality of the characters. The mentality of the leads in this book was very sophomoric in such a way that you immediately could not take the description of “high powered criminal lawyer and street king” seriously. These things coupled with the grammatical errors and lack of structure made for a difficult read. I’m sure the author is talented. I think I will try one of her other works. This story didn’t “gel”.
