It's a quickie alright, as in it is a short read. This book is for people who want fast story to hold them over or just don't like read long stories. I already like this book, because it's the only book that puts the scene in Texas. Mercedes and Kandi have an organization called Groupies Inc and they each have their own preference of guys they target for this website.
What is it?You may be asking yourself. Well, it's a website that keeps tracks of celebrity and what they prefer in the bedroom and different cities they would be in for other groupies to get on it as well. Mercedes is a firecracker who is not only confident in herself but know how to handle her money. Calvin aka C-bone is her current target and you see that Mercedez could have had a thing for him, but Calvin played a player role from the start. Later on, you see that Calvin was actually really feeling her a lot. Along the way, you meet Coco and Tasha, a few of Mercedez friends that are also apart of this incorporation except Tasha is a little inexperienced.
Allison Hobbs got me with this book and when I say got me, I was in shock and awe at the very first page. She took the stories of these three girls and took me through a very dreary story of what happens when you are in the wrong place at the wrong time. To me this story was very dark with hint of hope as you see Gianna's character not just be the first victim but for me the main character of this story because you saw her at her best as well as at her worst.
You meet Gianna at the start of this book trying to escape from her captor, Bullet. Side note though, I don't hate his character because he wants to snatch girls, I couldn't stand his character because of his innate stupidity. When Gianna does escape, you would think that she would find help somewhere, but it turns out that NOBODY helps her or sees the danger that she is in. When Bullet does capture her he takes her back and thus from here the story of Stealing Candy begins.
