And he thought to himself; it was always the money, the money and the drugs that made the two of them oblivious to their downward spiral in to the world of iniquity. The cocaine laced marijuana masked the fear of the inevitable-but now their past had caught up with their future. Not even the brown liquor could dilute the taste of blood on their tongues. The piercing stare of reality could no longer be distorted by the chemical substance abuse-and they were forced to involuntarily embrace their reflection in a sober state. The mental anguish consumed him like salt water to a drowning victim. He felt himself struggling to scream but no sound came out. Inside he grabbed for a rope that could prevent his fall in to the abyss but his arms waved frantically in vain. There was no saving him this time...no rope, life preserver, just the endless decline as a result of his failure. "Are you ok, Apple?" Chauncey asked as the site of her covered in blood sent a current of electricity from the bottom of his feet to the top of his head.Read Less
This was such a delightful novel. Quan Hodges successfully captured my attention and took my imagination for the duration of the time I was engulfed in this novel. Great job, Quan Hodges

From the moment I started reading this novel, I could not put it down!! The story line was very raw and realistic in nature. The characters' downward spiral into their own hell was plotted in a way that the reader could feel; what they were going thru. The intimate scenes were hot!! The outcome was uplifting. I am hoping for a sequel in the near future! This novel will make a GREAT movie!

You'll enjoy it
I enjoyed this book because of the unusual way the plot developed. I shouldn't describe the plot since the question ?what is going on? is part of the joy of reading this drama. In short, I liked finding out what was going on.

You'll love it
OMG! I loved this book. I have never wanted to personally kill someone so quickly after starting a story. Then there were areas of the book that the characters had me laughing so hard and giggling that my family was giving me the strangest looks. Then there were other parts that had me tearing up.. the range of emotions is just outstanding. Quan Hodges out did himself with telling the story of these characters. I love his writing style and I can hardly wait to read book his other books.
