Black Is Blue by Victor L. Martin delves into the life of a corporate woman who falls in love with a thug and finds out just how easy it is to stray from the straight and narrow.

Eighteen and hungry, Wiz's only addiction to drugs is the money it makes. But Crystal changes all of that and shows him just how powerful a woman can be, in The P is Free by LaShonda Sidberry-Teague.

Bobo, a member of the infamous Eight-Trey street gang, learns that gang life isn't all it's cracked up to be as street wars take on a whole new meaning in The Last Laugh by Bonta.

Shawn Jihad Trump tells a story of loyalty, love and honor as The Point Blank Mob is brought to its knees, leaving the crew fighting for their lives and freedom in All for Nothing.

And Wahida Clark introduces Nina, a woman tired of being disrespected by men, who takes revenge to the ultimate level in Makin' Endz Meet.

    " I actually entered to win this book for my mom, and she read it. She said that is was "gritty and street" That is had alot of "drama", which she loves. She also felt that the short storis were somewhat un-finished and would have been more complete with longer stories. "
