Seems like from reading this book this may have been Ed Mcnair's first rodeo...or not. The book didn't really grab me in the beginning but amazingly I kept reading and and I read on it became more interesting. Not a 5 star but It's an ok 3. However I will say this... The Title truly fits the book!
I made it thru 10 pages before I said no way on this earth with I read this crap. I like black fiction, but this way to ghetto fabulous for me. They start out talking about @#% and @#($ and segue into me finding out that the female lead is a 34 yo grandmother with a grandson old enough to talk? Look, I understand this happens in real life but it's reading way to much like a stereotype for me to support this.
