They came up together... but can they "Come Up" together? Smooth and China are a "power couple." An urban Gothic modern day Bonnie and Clyde. They know the ins and outs of the streets. But Smooth also knows its consequences. Which is why he wants to get "out" of the life just as quickly as he first entered it. The money? It's always an intricate part of any exit plan. The problem? His childhood sweetheart China. She loves "the life" - the wealth, and street cred it has brought her. Perhaps she has a little hidden passion for the action too. But at the end of the day China is a "paper chaser."
Their romantic and business dynamic however has never been more tested until now. The life and its stresses, but most of all... its trappings have caused a fracture in their once impenetrable relationship. Smooth wants her by his side when he gets out for good, but China's addicted to the money. It affects her better judgment. Er go she wants their transition out of "hustling" to be a slow one... if at all. As the pair begin to rise through the ranks... enemies, cops, and rivals become a much larger problem. In addition to one-time friends becoming foes. Together they're unstoppable. But money is the root of ALL evil and make no mistake these two love money. The question is... do they love each other more?
Second time reading this book. China was a Lil too rough but a great character. Smooth is a good man. I wish they expanded more on Roxy.
This book was amazing! Had my feeling like I was dating a drug dealer lol
