Bestselling urban erotic fiction phenomenon Noire tells the down and dirty story of a sassy stripper with an attitude that raises her up and then brings her down—hard.
It's a hard life for Saucy Sarita Robinson and the rules of the game are clear: get yours or get had. When her father gets popped in an armed robbery and her mother turns to drugs, Saucy is left to scratch out a life for herself on the streets of Harlem, and this city-slick vixen refuses to become a victim.
Young, hot, and hungry for the spotlight, Saucy has a full package and uses her assets to get whatever she wants. 128th Street has its own rules, and she knows them well. With sex as her weapon of choice, Saucy uses her beauty and her body to hustle her way straight into the heart of the hip-hop underworld, preying upon any man—or woman—who might help her get ahead. But Saucy just can't get enough. Her calculating nature and insatiable appetite for power and prestige tempt her into dangerous waters, and before long she finds herself in too deep. The shot callers of the hip-hop world have a few tricks for Saucy—a gutter plan to force her back onto the very streets that she came from.
But Saucy refuses to go down easy. She plots her revenge against some of the most powerful playas in the music industry, never suspecting that her enemies will fight back—and fight back hard.
Last seen during a short walk-on (or rather, incall) in Thug-a-Licious, Saucy Robinson returns with a vengeance in Noire's latest Harlem street tale, with Noire's most sophisticated plot to date. Born in Harlem to a black ex-G.I. father and a junkie Korean prostitute mother, Saucy (named Seung Cee by her mother and Sarita by her father) ends up in her uncle Swag's care by age eight, after her mother pimps her out to various men and her lesbian lover. Saucy's upstairs neighbor is a black girl named Tai, and the two are on-again, off-again frenemies for the rest of the book. Saucy, a total hottie, ends up attached to various drug dealers and working at a strip joint, the G-Spot. She breaks into doing rap videos, and ordinary-looking Tai, who is working for super-rapper Freedom Moore, hooks them up. Free wants Saucy to act straight, and if she can, her happiness might be assured. Beyond the sex, what drives the book is Saucy's vivid, trash-talking unreliability except perhaps in describing her own pleasure.
A lady at my work allowed me to borrow this. I thought it would be weird but this snuck up on me as an excellent read, beginning to end.
Noire has yet to disappoint me with any of his novels. This novel is a real page turner one of those novels you can read in one sitting.
Great book, a must read
