Excellent Read!

Great story and excellent read! You won't be able to put this book down until you finish it!

A real page-turner

Alex Hairston has done it again. This book left me yearning for more. Alex does a fantastic job with character development. I felt like I knew each one of them personally. The title really fits the story. Jamal has a heck of a lot of DRAMA to deal with. It was refreshing to read about a brother with values and morals. Alex did an outstanding job writing from both the male and female perspective. He was able to capture a true female voice. I highly recommemnd this book to anyone looking to read a book with substance.

Does money makes the world go round?

Jamal King is a talented artist who makes a modest amount of money selling his art wherever he can. He also works as an assistant manager of an arts and crafts store. The love of his life, Jessica, has a desperate need for all the things money can buy; clothes, cars, houses and plenty of cash to line her purse. Of course, at this time Jamal can't supply those things for her so she casts her eyes on a friend they grew up with who makes plenty of money, but who also makes plenty of trouble, not only for himself but for Jessica and everyone around him as well.Meanwhile, Jamal has found a long lost love from high school. She seems genuinely interested in Jamal's work as an artist and is supportive of him. She too, has been unlucky in her choice of lovers, but things seem right with Jamal and they move in together. Soon after they connect, Jamal's artwork attracts the attention of an attractive, African American art promoter. He needs to travel to art shows in order sell his works and it looks as if he's going to make a ton of money. That's when he finds out what his new love is really all about.Meanwhile his favorite uncle dies and leaves behind a secret that hits the family like an exploding bomb. His twin sister's marriage is in trouble and a troublesome aunt is released from jail.Using tangled love affairs, mixed-up family situations, explosive friendships complete with gunshots and cops, Alex Hairston has woven an exciting tale that holds your interest from the first page.Reviewed by alice Holmanof the RAWSISTAZ Reviewers
