I really enjoyed this book. While it was a mystery plot and there were some very thrilling twists and turns, I felt that it was more about the characters and their backgrounds than about the death of a rapper and the search to find her killer.

Initially I was torn between giving this book 3 and 4 stars. But I decided to give it 4 stars because the characters won me over completely. Tennyson Hardwick is one helluva guy with a steamy past, complex family and romantic relationships and he is handsome and very manly to boot. He was interesting and I found myself really rooting for him.

The plot had its intense moments but I found that the finale was a little convoluted and I wanted to know more. (Which is probably a good thing, right?)But overall I was happy with the ending and the book as a whole. I would definitely want to read another one if Mr. Underwood continues this as a series. And I would love to see this made into a movie.
