This book is excellent
captures you from the first sentence and every chapter
Skye Washington is the beautiful trophy wife of Sandino Washington, an injured professional football player that degrades and abuses her erratically. Skye grows tired of the beatings and decides to run for her life with their two teenage sons, Kareem and Jordan, and four month old baby Payton. A furious and arrogant Sandino hires his crew to locate Skye and his children and return them to him.

Skye has grown accustomed to the glamorous life with the elaborate trimmings, but will she be strong en
Jackie D is an awesome writer and this book is a best seller. I loved the way she keep me in suspense thru out the entire book. Needless to say that I finished the book in one setting. If you are looking for an excellent book to read , this is it. You will not be disappointed! I can't wait to read the next one and will be one of the first to make that purchase.

This book isn't what I typically go for as far as urban fiction but I decided to read it after my aunt came to visit me and bought me a lot of her old books and actually liked it. I wouldn't say it's a must read but it was a very good quick read if your looking for something to occupy your time.
Would I recommend:no

Enjoyed this story of survival. It was a breath of fresh air to read another angle on the lifestyles and relationships of beautiful women and their athlete husbands. Well written and engaging.
This was a very good book. It made me look a Domestic Violence in a whole new way. Money isn't everything when it comes down to your life and kids.
This book was fire!!! I am so anticipating part 2. WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT!!!!
I really did enjoy this book, it was very interesting (:
This was a good read, but I think part two is better
Like I said before great. Need to get part two to this.
Good overall ending was a bit abrupt.
Nice twist at the end.
