Publisher's Summary

Antonio Roberts and Paige Tillary are from vastly different backgrounds, so when they meet and fall in love, it won't be easy.

Antonio, born of an affair between a beautiful actress and a notorious crime boss, lost his mother to drugs and was forced to navigate foster care and survive on the streets of the Bronx. He is ignored by his father, the infamous head of a powerful crime syndicate, and his half-brothers are living the life Antonio used to dream about. Antonio has turned his struggles into a career in the NBA, but when a devastating injury sidelines his basketball career and he finds out he has been duped out of millions by his best friend, Antonio is forced to turn to the father who never claimed him. 

Paige came from money. Private schools, trips around the world, and extravagant shopping sprees were all part of her upbringing. Her father is a well-respected politician who is not happy when his daughter falls in love with a man who represents everything the senator despises. But Paige's father harbors many secrets of his own, including one that will soon rock his family to the core.

In spite of their own marital issues, Paige's parents try to exert pressure on her to leave Antonio. She lets love guide her, and despite her parents' threats to disinherit her, she marries Antonio anyway. When secrets, lies, and ties to a dangerous criminal underworld cause their opposing worlds to collide, the young couple is torn between their love for one another and their competing family loyalties. 

Family secrets, power, money, fame, and love are the ties that bind in this emotionally charged street tale.

Terrible 🙄

This story line was terrible it seemed rushed & all over the place at times . One minute Paige was reflecting the night of the gala while taking to her brother to being tied up & raped by unknown assailants. The narrator read to fast probably because she wanted it to be over just as fast as me. I want my credit back this was terrible 🙄

Misty Reign

I love all Carl Weber’s kingpins, the narrator is horrible.. every character sounds the same and speaking very fast. I could not finish the book.

Where is the part 2?

I don’t know what is with the other reviews. If they don’t realize the book is flashing back from the listener to understand what is currently happening and why, then look for something else. I have gotten used to the narrator because she has read for other series produced by Carl Weber, so it doesn’t bother me. I’m looking for part 2!!!!

Seriously!

That ending was horrible. Why leave the reader to wonder? There’s no sequel so what’s the point!

Could have been better

Misty Reign didn't read this well. There was a lot of chopping up sentences and breaking down what was supposed to be humor. I listened to the end but I believe that this book could have been better if it was read with the correct enunciation and flow.

Down grade

Theses King pin books lack the luster and creativity of Carl’s books like the Hood misfits series. Too basic, predictable and boring!
