Sa’id is a man of power in the city of Atlanta and its surrounding counties. Staying low-key while ruling over majority of the region’s drug supply is the least of his concerns.

I'm not going to rate this book because I have mixed feelings about it.

Outside of some editing issues, I think the author's writing is good.

Now this story, whew boy. The blurb pretty much tells you what this story is about. Sa'id is bored with his current wives...that's right, wives. He currently has two, Yalina and Ubah. Yalina knows of the lifestyle that Sa'id was born and raised in and has no problem being a second wife. BUT Ubah, is not used to it and is jealous. Her attacks on Yalina duri

It was short but sweet. It definitely left me curious and wanting to know more. The plot is very different. This is my first time reading📚 this author. I am pleased and am on to the next one.🙌😁👌👏

Too much going on for 65 pages

This could have been a SOLID standalone novel had the back story (Blythe and Sa’id) been there and all the other part whatever’s combined. The descriptions and details were there, Solid character with substance, action to keep the book going. I feel cheated out of a full novel because of laziness! If you’re an author that needs to write in batches to make it make sense to yourself and us do that. Some of us will wait and pay for quality!

Great Read!

Honey, listen...I can already tell that Sa'id is a mutha with himself, and I'm loving every bit of it. What drew me to this book was the cover. I never thought that I would get caught up like this , though. This is my first t ad from this author. I was engrossed from beginning to ending. Headed to book two!

Sa’id.... Lawd

Something about this man pulls me in! Which is probably why the women in the book love him. I really liked this story and now I’m fully invested! Great job! On to book 2!

Oh my! Sa'id wasn't nothing to play with. He was a man of power. Already with two wives, he desired more. He meets Blythe and she's a different vibe from his wives. But will she be a challenge?
My first read from this author. I'm definitely finishing up this series.

A book that draws you in slowly and before you know it, you are absorbed in a world of love, lust, sex, jealousy and more. I am a bit annoyed that I have to wait for part two . Hopefully the author will continue to bring the fire in part two

Pretty Good Read!

Short, interesting book that flowed very well. Left a lot of unanswered questions that I’m just waiting on book two so that I can possibly get answers to. Congratulations on you first book and I am looking forward to reading book two.

I love the premise of the story but the execution fell flat. The writing came off as flat and the grammatical errors just killed the vibe of the story for me.

What SA'ID wants SA'ID gets. He's the H.N.I.C and runs his city! With his eyes set on Blythe, baby girl doesn't stand a chance... I must say the pool scene at the beginning had me taking notes. Lol!

Drama!!! I loved this story. Although the family dynamics were definitely different, I respect the author's ability to write outside of the box. I'm wondering if there will be more to Lastonia's character; why wasn't she arrested. Hmm...just a thought. Can't wait to read book two!!! ...more
