Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Enticing Journey Book Promotions and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

***Warning: This book contains adult language, graphic violence, and explicit sex that may be disturbing for some readers. This book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.***

Mary Jane, a struggling comedienne, stumbled into the wrong club at the wrong time. She didn't notice the gangster gripping the gun and the two scary men on his sides. She just jumped on the stage, tested the microphone, and went into her routine. 

And that's where things got interesting. 

Noah was the gangster that gripped the gun. The Beast of Din City. The Boss of the Streets. The one who ruled them all from the North to the South. Not liking to murder women, he'd now been thrown into an uncomfortable situation. She'd accidentally become a witness to something she shouldn't have seen. 

She'd now become a problem. 

Yet, their gazes met and hearts faltered, thump, thumping in their chest like a tune beat out from bullets slicing through the air and bodies crashing to the ground. 

Their gazes met and things would never be the same for him or her, nor the Streets. Their gazes met and he decided not to kill her, instead he took her on a journey where sex meets the rhythm of the streets, high to low, smooth to rough, growing inside of them both until they're not sure, if any of them will survive—him, her, or those bloody streets.

Noah is a very dark man in all aspects of his life.  The sad part is that he’s been that way since a young age.  He makes no excuses for what he does – but does that make him honorable.  Mary Jane is a young woman who’s in the wrong place at the wrong time.  She has a way of getting under someone’s skin.  This interaction will have you looking to see what type of impact she will have on his life.

The author puts a joke at the beginning of each chapter.  It won’t take you long to realize why the joke comes at the beginning.  MJ may have a thing for jokes, no offense to the author but they just didn’t make me laugh.  And you may not feel the same.  She also divides her book into acts.

I liked the idea behind this story but I found it easy to walk away from.  There’s plenty of violence here but that’s the world they live in.  I wasn’t able to stay away either because I had to know what happened to Mary Jane in the end.  You always hope that the woman can change the man but she ends up loving him the way he is.  Some may think he changed but underneath it all I just didn’t feel he changed himself.  At times the story seemed a little strange but that also doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t attempt to try and read it again.  Just a warning for those looking for a short read - this is a long book, over 400 pages.  For me, the ending left the possibility of another story.

Kenya Wright wrote her first novel during her third year at UM Law school. She dropped out a month after the release and never looked back.

Words are power, and Kenya wants to be the greatest wizard that ever lived.
It's an audacity to inspire and teach the healing of love through arousal. 
It's this crazy idea that love can not only help a reader escape, but the story can also teach the person  about being human, while making them laugh, cry, and hot for more sex.
