This book captures you on the very first page. Robin is one scandalous chick. She pitted her sons against one another to fill her own pockets. She put her sons in the game soley to take care of her and when Melo fell in love with Blue she did everthing she could to destroy that relationship so that Melo would have only her. She mess up Ransom's head from the time he was little and crushed his heart when she turned on him. I would love to read more from this author. This book was the BOMB. Buy is book because you will not be disappointed if you love a good drama with a whole lots of love.
I want and need more books.
I must be in the minority here...

Everyone has given this book five stars and I really thought it was going to be good. I have to say that perhaps I havent read far enough yet, but what I have read is less than impressive. I am 52 pages in and have had to sit it down several times. It's just so redundant. How many times will the author tell us that Carmelo is the more desirable brother? And how many times will she tell us that he's so fine because of his Dominican descent? How many times must she refer to Rason as black, as if that's an undesirable trait? And that Blue is so fine because she has light eyes, light skin, and good hair? Are we back in the Jim Crow South or what? It's the same old cliche that we find in every urban fiction book. The girl is stunningly beautiful because she has good hair, light eyes, and yellow skin. The guy is stunningly handsome because he's mixed with some type of Latin ethnicity. Ugh... Maybe that's the author's idea of "beauty" or being classified as "fine," but I think... read more
When Your Family Becomes Your Worst Enemy
- November 2, 2010
Being that they had it so rough Carmelo and Ranson should have been thick as theives, but their mother made sure that didn't happen.
This is one of the best street lit books I've read to date. I want to read it again already. Even though Carmelo (I love him) has a bit of a temper his love for Blue is undeniable. I truely enjoyed following their love at first sight story.
Ranson at the hands of his evil, trifling mother is just broken. And it goes to show that a family that is divided will truely fall if they can't come together.
Follow this tell of unreturned loved that turns to betrayal. Family members who look for love but are thrust into the street; to a lost family that comes together in a time of need, you won't be disappointed.
