In the comments section below, tell us what you want to read next (author and title).  How many books can I nominate? Just pick 1 title off your TBR (to be read) list. Then what? We will put the list of nominations up for everyone to vote on.  Once the voting is over, the winner will be selected as the book for August. What if there is a tie? We will put the two books to a head to head competition. The two books will be re-posted and everyone will be able to vote again but only in a 48 hour window of time.

    Back Cover Synopsis

    “Bona Fide Street Thug”

    Chi-Chi is a young wealthy female living with the fact that nothing has been done about her brother’s murder. The police are of no Help, and when she learns that Houston’s own, “Money Black”, could be her brother’s killer, she has to find a way to face this Notorious drug dealer. But Chi-Chi has no street sense and no connection with the underground. All she has is money.

    Torn, she is forced to confide in her ex-boyfriend Cornelius and Offers him one million dollars to find out if Money Black actually behind the murder. Cornelius could only think of one person when he’d heard that name and the amount of money being offered. His big homey Javoo, a street hustlin’ mastermind and the one person Money Black Hated the most.

    Bona Fide Street Thug lets you explore the dark world of robbery, drugs, kidnapping and murder. It is a story that defines the life of Houston’s street hustlers and the plots that scandalously pursue our number one resource: money.
