Book Review:

Cartel 7: Spoilers…. ALERT ⚠

This book was good, I couldn’t wait to read this book, especially when this book is going to be about the children, I do wonder if the girl Ash and CJ will hook up, in my mind. I think that is what will happen, especially when Mia wants the girl to get close to him. And lordy Mo act more like Mecca than Monroe. Make you wonder, if he is really Mecca child, he’s a while card and going to have CJ just like him.

But to me CJ been through hell and back compare to Mo, from getting put in the hospital to child abuse, to losing family, all that other stuff. Also, I can’t wait for the next book, It sucks that Carter died but some reason I am not sad like everyone else, I guess because he didn’t kill by the gun, only a heart attack. It’s weird no one knew how his heart was after him being shot and he having pains. When he fell out at his son fight, I knew he had a heart attack before I even gotten to the part where it was mentioned. But it’s good that he saw his son for the last time before he died.

Thugs Cry 3: Respect My Gangsta by Ca$h

Bruh they💀 messed up when they let Rah live. And it’s funny too how Nard and his people think they did something. When CJ killed himself they didn’t pull no trigger CJ went out like a G, and he protected his best friend. I cannot wait until RAHEEM do justice to Nard and his people. I still think Nard brother is the one who’s going to get killed first. I cannot wait too. Hopefully, Kaneisha doesn’t get killed if she can help Rah get to Nard that’ll make my day. Her dad can get it too since he is one of the reasons why Rah was kidnapped and CJ being killed.

Book Review:

Thugs Cry 3

Few Spoilers…..

Wow, this ending, had me disappointed. Like really? But man I am glad Nard got what he deserved. He went out like a punk in my opinion. Because he didn’t save his man’s like CJ did for Rah, or murder himself. But when Kenisha I wanted her to live but then she gave up her son for Nard like girl ain’t that much love in the world could make me give up my child for no dude. Plus, that heifer Rah trusted I don’t like her, at all she set him up, I knew the ending wasn’t going to be good for them. Plus, what Nard and his people did to Legend, had me tight I liked that boy, him a Premo. Also, the only thing I dislike was when they killed that little five-year-old boy.

 

Book Description35502793

Money, power, respect and the battle for one woman’s love pitted two notorious drug dealers against each other in a bloody battle that left behind many casualties.
Young NARD has finally brought down CJ, Newark, New Jersey’s most powerful and most dynamic crack King. But the baby-faced drug kingpin has made one monumental mistake—he left RAHEEM dying, but with an ounce of life still in him.
If Rah survives, there’s going to be a war in the streets unlike anything the decrepit city has ever witnessed, as he seeks to avenge the death of a friend whom he loved like a brother.
Both men are thinkers, and they both have murderous goons at their disposal. But only one side can be victorious.
Which side will it be? Will Nard’s ego remain in check as his stature explodes to astronomical heights in the hood? If Raheem lives, will he prove that his gangsta is as cold as his mind is sharp? Nothing is for certain but death. But who’s death will it be? This time when THUGS CRY, they’ll cry more than tears—they’ll cry blood. Lots of it!

Book Review:

>> SPOILERS <<<
The truck is a B.I.T.C.H, lol! When he saw The Hound, he said: “You know what?” I hope his little snitch *** get murked. And I am glad he got what he deserved too. Because he set Cutty up and end up in the cell with Cutty, ha, KARMA’s is a mother I tell you. Plus the only real dudes was in this book to me was Cutty, Mel, Rio, Prince, Jay, and the kid that Mel hung out with that left. It was sad that they all died in the end except Cutty, but still, Rio went out like the G that he was. Plus, it’s crazy how people underestimated Rio, but what brought his demon Side out was the situations that has to happen to Trinity or if someone says something about her. He truly love that girl, I felt he should’ve killed himself, I mean love will do that to a person. I am just glad everyone found out who Truck really was. Also, I want a book about The Hound and Kane. I love them lol they are awesome.

Book Review:

Spoilers.

Here…. And
….

There….

Man, I hate Simone, she’s ruined peoples lives. Not only has skewer killed Aisha but she killed her baby too. Because she was jealous of both of them. I don’t get how she thinks to murder both Aisha, and their baby would keep Omari. Once Omari finds out she done killed not only his woman but his baby his ass going to go crazy. Heck Simone even tried to take Omari sister baby. Like the girl, you are beyond crazy, and you know in the real world some men and women actually act the way Simone do.

I’m pissed at Gia for snitching on Chance because she was hurt, I blamed Simone for that because she coos that boy into murdering Aisha. I felt like Chance was naive in the beginning until he realized that Simone was a lier. I hope nothing happens to Chance because man I like him but knowing Omari pretty boy crazy self, it’s no telling what is going to happen.

Plus I am wondering if Omari killed Ching or not I hope not UGH.

Book Review:

JUST A FEW SPOILERS HERE AND THERE!!

I had no doubts about this book I knew it was going to be good, once I started reading, and I had high hopes for Swan, Shai, and Gater, and bruh I thought Gater got killed like tf. Dude, I’m like all three of them, would’ve been some beast in the streets. But then I’m like, the kid sound familiar thou from the other books I have read with the Clark’s in them. But that part is so familiar to me like I read it somewhere with him and that scene! He had to survived that shoot out, but how is the question, so I go back to the Animal (Book1), and like Gator did die. Blah. 

Also, I finally got to read how Shai dad died, and what happened with his brother Tommy, who I thought was a straight idiot, he definitely messed up his father business and got half of everybody killed including his father. And man when I read that part that was some sad **** I got a little teary eyed reading it especially when Tommy saw his father laid out in the streets, and when Shai pulled up and seen his dad, like dang.

Also, I know people are going to be like REALLY and some other stuff, but listen lol, NO lie to you, I swear I thought Shai and his family was Italian from reading the other books that they are in lmao. SMH! Just because of the “spaghetti eating comments.

Lastly, I don’t hate Shai as much as I did at first since I read his story. Also, I felt like if nothing happened to his father or Tommy. I think he wouldn’t have gotten into the drug business, it’s funny how no one looks at Shai and being the one to watch. Like um, I knew he was going to lethal, a problem, dude, is actually street smart, and book smart, he think things through before acting unlike his brother.

About to start reading this…. I know I probably start liking Shai …. after I start this lol 😂😒😒 

Description:

He set out to be the good son, but the streets had a different plan.

Born to one of the city’s most notorious crime families, Shai Clark has always managed to be a good kid. A college hoops star, Shai shunned the world that his father had created and focused on his dreams of going pro. Tommy, Shai’s trigger-happy older brother, is next in line for the throne and rules under his father through brute force. But Poppa has bigger plans for Shai.
The situation soon turns ugly when Poppa is murdered and Tommy is removed from the equation. Suddenly Shai finds himself at the head of his father’s empire and the streets are thrown into chaos. It is then that he must decide whether to pursue his own dreams or put his father’s affairs in order. Unable to sit idly by while the Clarks’ underworld empire is pillaged, Shai takes up his father’s mantle and brings his game to the streets. He quickly learns that there are two sides to every coin, and the streets hold no mercy for the weak.
Hoodlum chronicles three generations of Trinidadian immigrants and their rise to power in the New York City heroin trade.
A K’wan classic.

All he ever wanted to be was a Good Son …
Shai Clark was an all-American basketball player with aspirations of one day making it to the NBA, but that all changed when his father was viciously murdered and he found himself thrust into the role of the new head of his family’s criminal enterprise.

After waging a war on the streets of New York that lasts nearly three years, it seems like peace is finally being restored to the land and Shai can get back to focusing on continuing his father’s mission to legitimize the Clark family— but little does he know it was only the calm before the storm. Not everyone respects his claim to the Clark empire, and when new and old enemies start to come out of the woodwork, Shai will find that inheriting the throne was one thing, but holding onto it will prove to be a far more difficult task.

I’m also like what happen to the baby over and over.Plus, I also felt bad for Tammi, I knew she was going to die anyway so or later.I hope Omari don’t end up with that psycho.Capone, and Omari actually going to end up in that drug game hard watch especially after his woman died. I was happy to here his daughter lived I’m like thank God.While, I’m over here listening to this book like um hello did she live? Glad she did. I’m just rolling my eyes and shaking my head like this ninja here.Smh… Ending had me like  see I just knew.  Why? Because I figured Simone had something to do with Ayesha murder and not only Ayesha, Tammi murder too. I hope they mop the floor with that weave of her psychopath self lol. I know I don’t like snitches, Chance need to snitch on that hoe thot lol. Cause whoosh I never lol.

Book Description: 

He’s beautiful, with gray eyes, tall, chocolate…and he’s worth fighting for.

Meet Omari, a gorgeous, hardworking 28-year-old man from the South Side of Chicago. No matter how hard he works at his job at UPS, it is never enough to take care of himself and his long-term girlfriend. After continuous pressure from his older cousin, Ching, Omari finally trades in busting his ass for working under Ching, hustling three major blocks on the West Side.

All is good as Omari juggles work and the drug game – until Ching involves him in the murder of someone who ends up being the governor’s nephew. As he dodges homicide detectives, Omari is also trying to dodge getting caught between two loves. He’s been committed to Aeysha for seven years but is falling more each day for Simone, an older, more established woman who is at his beck and call.

After years of playing the side chick, Simone finally finds love that she thinks is all her own. Just as she settles in to loving Omari, she finds out about Aeysha, and her desperate mind begins to plot how to finally win her man. Simone’s best friend, Tammy, thinks Simone is crazy, and she herself is running from an obsessed ex-boyfriend who is persistent in trying to kill her. Tammy lives in hiding for months as she asks herself this burning question: How can a man love a woman with the same hands that he is willing to kill her with?

As the murder investigation leads to arrests, the walls come down on these lovers. Murder, sex, and indictments lead to unforeseen tragedy and unexpected love.
