This is a fast paced urban tale that reminds me of a modern day Romeo and Juliet. Monique Waters is the daughter of a school teacher who has left her lover, Pete, a drug lord, so her child Monique will not be caught up in the streets.  Monique appears to be the ideal college girl til she meets the handsome and dashing, Armand, a drug dealer who is rapidly move up in the streets under the wings of his boss, Titan. Trying to hider her identity as a "good girl" Monique does not tell Armand that her father is Pete and goes along with the game that she doesn't know street life, but things shift when a hit is put on a drug house that belongs to Armand and Monique is almost killed. The only thing that saves her is an emblem around her necklace that the would be assassins report to  Pete who now realizes his daughter is tied to his nemesis, Armand and Titan. Along with her two siblings, Pete,  pulls Monique to his house for safety and forbids her to see Armand whom he has taken a hit on. A full street war ensues when the old school gangsters go against the new bloods. Monique is torn when Armand learns the truth about her and is caught between being loyal to his boys and protecting her risking himself to be killed. Meanwhile Monique is torn between family loyalty for her brother and father as well. When things start to heat on the streets and body start to roll, Moniques sister is nearly killed and her brother is on a mission to take down Armand. Soon bullets start to fly, betrayals are in full effect as  lives starts to spiral for an all out street war. 

What did you like about the book?
It was fast paced, full of action packed and kept you on the edge of your seat. The characters were believable and well developed.

What did you dislike about the book?
I was slightly disappointed I had to wait on a PART 2, but it was good, I can't complain really.

What could the author do to improve the book?
There were alot of characters in the book, maybe lessening a few would help.

Armand! This is absolutely <a href="http://hfvqhxo.com">goueogrs< ;/a>! I have to really sit down and catch up on all these lovely drawings (the dirigible reminds me of Red Alert 3, I don't know why). Also, Chris Deboda was evil and tagged me, so I am tagging back! You have been tagged!Will update via email soon. Am costuming and preparing for the Lord of the Rings Symphony...argh!--Shuku

Unconventional women don't often fit into more conventional sizes. Instead, they are faced with the chlalenge of finding comfortable and stylish plus size women's clothing. By and large, most store refuse to stock sizes in excess of a size 14 or 16. This means they have to find the clothes they need in specialty store that can be very expensive. What then is a plus size woman to do? She has to do her research and find the places, both online and off, that will accommodate her wardrobe

I loved the daughter of the game, part one and two. When does part three come out, I am on edge wanting to know what happened, who lived who died. Is armand and monique together. Oh the suspense.

This was a VERY good book and as the reviewer stated I'm also disappointed that I have to wait for the sequel to see what happens. Great review.
