Stained cotton, as defined by author Quentin Carter, is a worthless white woman that has been tainted by a black man or vice versa. But the tainting that takes place in Mr. Carter's novel not only affects the white characters but the black characters as well. Qu'bon and O'bon Cartez are brothers deeply entrenched in Kansas City's drug game. Living well off of their street dealings they're both well known throughout their 'hoods, especially to the females.

Katrina and Nancy Miller are suburban white girls that are longing to enjoy the black experience, in every sense of the word. One venture into the inner city leads to an encounter with Qu'bon and O'bon which will leave all four character's lives forever altered. What the brothers thought of as just a fling with some "pink toes" evolves into so much more when external circumstances force the couples into needed alliances.

Although the alliances may destroy Katrina and Nancy's relationship with their parents, with a snake embedded in Qu'bon and O'bon's crew, the alliance may help the brothers get some much needed revenge against an enemy in their midst. An enemy that has the power to jeopardize the brother's lives and freedom!

What did you like best about the book?
The premise was very taboo but it worked because the book was action-packed and stayed true to the Triple Crown Publication formula of sex, drugs, and murder.

What did you dislike about the book?
The main character Qu'bon was extremely shallow and selfish although it made him annoying the traits did lead him to precarious situations that he could have avoided if he would have overruled his ego.

How could the author improve this book?
The cover lacked imagination and was not very good at depicting what the novel was about.
