Publisher's Summary

Do you know who you are? Are you comfortable in your skin? Outed by her best friend in front of the whole neighborhood, Niya is trying to come to terms with being a lesbian. When she falls for her straight neighbor, Jamilla, there is no more denying who she really is. Niya will do whatever it takes to prove her love, even if it means taking a life. What will happen when family issues, fame, the struggle for love, and reality set in? How will Niya deal with a hip-hop career as she tries to repair her broken heart and family issues?

Signing to Green Note Records may just bring fulfillment and love when the sexy R&B diva Brazil Noelle swoops in and aims for Niya’s heart. Niya has always been the hero, but is she willing to be saved? Will her feelings for Jamilla block what could be her chance to get back the love she always gives? 

Jamilla is drowning in the reality of her home life. Forced to face a real-life monster on a daily basis, the shame of her past is slowly killing everything beautiful about her. Just when she thinks life isn’t worth living, she befriends Niya and becomes confused by the extremely close, unconventional friendship - and the high sexual tension that sends her head spinning. Will her fling with a male “straighten” her out for good, or will it help her realize that love has no boundaries? How long can this game of friendship last when love is the stronger opponent?

Join the tormented twosome on an undeniable thrill ride as they travel down the rocky road of self-discovery. Niya and Jamilla will combat their fears, violence, distractions, extortion, love, denial, family, and sometimes each other in this emotionally charged and action-packed coming-of-age tale.

Disappointing ending

I really wanted to love this book . And it had me caught up for the most part. There were times when the story line was just to drawn out , but at the same time kept me wanting more. Extremely disappointed with the ending. It’s just left the readers scratching their heads !!! Would love to see how it ended but unable to find part 2 at all.

Wow.

This book had so many twists and turns but also felt super drawn out. It was very interesting but the ending was horrendous! Super disappointed but the narrator was amazing at doing different voices.

So disappointed

While this was a good read, the ending really pissed me off. Not even sure if I want to read the second part, even though it doesn't even seem to be available anywhere anyway.

Good story. Tough listen.

This story was a tough listen (emotionally), so if you’re sensitive the graphic situations then this might be hard for you to get through. I liked the storyline because it’s relatable, so it resonated with me. I’d read another F. Joseph for sure. Unfortunately, I didn’t like the narrators performance. The timing and inflections were way off and I found it quite difficult to finish. If performance is important to you this listen might be difficult for you as it was for me, but I’d recommend the read if you have the time to do it yourself.

Left me disappointed

This book sucks you in and drags you along waiting for a big close out just to leave you wondering was the end really the end. I felt like the whole build up love story crashed and burned in the ending

Drawn out

Good story but I had to skip 50 chapters and still wasn’t lost. Both of the main characters got on my nerves
