Cash Rules Everything Around Me

Karima Thomas was released after a six month prison stint for refusing to testify against her guy, one of the most notorious dealers in North Philly. Prison had definitely changed her. Now hardened to the facts of life, she knows that love cost her too much time. Bitterness cast aside, her longing and mind were set on asking her aunt for an opportunity to work in the family's business.

Duane Faison was lost without his soul mate, C.R.E.A.M. He'd been anticipating he

Karima Johnson got involved with the wrong kind of man. Or so they say. Fresh out of jail she goes looking for a job with the help of her aunt ( a prominate political figure ). She's then fingured into the death of the mayor and a big political scandle is found out. Karima turns to the one person she tried to satay away from, her ex, for help in finding out what really happened and clearing her name.
I won't say the ending cause that would really spoil it and there's a couple other things i left

The reason I'm giving C.R.E.AM 3 stars is I feel like the author left some things out. It was a good story. It did have the suspense and mystery that I enjoy reading. Without telling the story, Duane's character is wide-open to me. C.R.E.A.M's character was a bit of a mystery. I hope the sequel will give more insight. I did enjoy the story.

Wildly disappointed. Heard a piece on NPR about Solomon Jones and his books sounded like the were ones I would like. Perhaps I just picked the wrong one but I won't be reading anymore of his anytime soon. Too simplistic of a writing style and too predictable for me.

A very fast read. Action, romance and mystery. Great for summer reading.
