We start off learning that Memphis has three gang groups and within it, there are females who have a factor in how these gangs operate. We have the Flowers, Cripettes, and the Queen G and I did not read the story yet, but I heard this author was good in supplying me with the drama and suspense that I crave in stories. From the looks of it, she doesn't disappoint. The first two pages, instant fight and you already know what it's about. The author kind of threw you into the mix of things with limited facts, but you catch on rather quickly. For those that don't, Tashara is Leshelle's sister and Profit is Fat Ace's brother or closet thing to and they don't want to be a part of any of these gangs and just love each other, but being where they are from its not possible so things hit the fan when their little love is exposed to the wrong people. You kind of see how they're relationship started and bloomed with the flashbacks.

This book was interesting and really wasn't the type of book that I stop and read, so this was a first for me. The book starts off really weird because I have no idea what's going on but, the next few pages make it pretty clear. I never really knew what I was in for, but I am very glad that I read it. I felt like you were watching a young girl blossom into this strong independent woman. Her family and the choices that she made really made her who she is.
You are introduced to Shae Byrts who is a young girl who is not living the good life. Her and her family have a mix of love and hate that come together in the worst way. Her mother is an alcoholic who forces Shae into a motherly role for her siblings. Mrs. Byrts is nothing nice to her family and you really only see her doing two things in this story. Leaving to get drunk and yelling at her kids and those two combined make for a nasty tale. In this house, she also lives with her grandmother and three brothers and each of them have their own story that will touch your heart in some kind of way and you will start to understand Ma Violet and Toby's character as they progress. What I have noticed with each of them was that they were all suffering from something within the family.
The authors brought all of my favorite characters back for a whirlwind of a ride in the Cartel 4 by Ashley and Jaquavis. If you haven't read the first three I suggest you close this tab, go and read them and come back at me. All the hidden unanswered question are revealed and a few surprising characters return for some eye popping reveals
In the privacy of his home Carter keeps his relationship with Mia a secret from his family and for good reason really. He accepted Mia and all her ways and didn't know how to present that to his family. I loved how the authors showed the boundaries of Carter and Mia because even though she came back, Carter wants to trust her and Mia would follow him to the ends of the earth. They have magnetic pull to each other because their hearts were in it from the very beginning.
