Book Reviews Playing in Traffic & Tears of The Game



There are more than thirty million slaves in the world today. Eighty percent are female, and half are children. This is Billie and Carmine's story.
Deceived into leaving Haiti and Cuba by Mr. and Mrs. Vega, Billie and Carmine are confronted with a harsh reality once on American soil. The teens realize they are sex workers for the Pricey Pussy Empire, and the couple who lured them to the U.S., actually run their own division for the underground flesh for sale operation. Billie and Carmine will suffer through human indecency, cruel punishment, and sexual assault in hopes of breaking the chains of captivity.
When Billie is sold by the bitter wife of the man who slips into her bed at night, the twosome is faced with a huge dilemma. Will Billie be swept away in the dark of night by her new buyer, or will Carmine step in and help her with a plan that will win their tickets to freedom? But, what is freedom to the souls who continue to play in traffic?
Choices must be made, and those decisions may deal the priciest blows to their young lives. There is an expensive price tag attached to vengeance, and once it is theirs, they may just end up paying with their souls.
What does it take to survive in the world of human trafficking? A warrior's heart, the hunger for blood and revenge, and pure insanity. Witness the evolution of Billie Blue Blondie and Carmine Pallazolo.






My Two Cents 


Fabiola takes you on an emotional roller coaster with Pricey. Her words paint a vivid picture of human trafficking and the emotional scars it leaves on the victim's souls. I was spellbound by the characters of this novel. Their development was so thorough, I felt as though I was reading about people I actually knew. This book has it all; nice tight writing, an original plot, and the page turning effect that will help you escape from reality



I highly recommend this read!

The lives of four best friends since high school have been turned upside down. Sex, drugs, lies, and shootouts have become a normal way of life. 

JT the ringleader, Banks, his right hand, Jaylin his twin brother, and Red the muscle of the crew, have fought their way through the mean streets of East Oakland, California; building a drug empire, and a grimy reputation that has caught the unwanted attention of a lot of women… and the jealousy of their enemies, including the Oakland Police Department.

In the midst of all the drama, friendships will be tested, lives will be lost, and marriages will be devastated. Will any of them survive, or will it be chalked up as just tears of the game? 






My Two Cents 



I was pleasantly surprised by the depth and development of this story. Angie put a unique spin on this street lit tale, and added twists and turns with an unpredictable plot. I could relate to the characters, and see their growth. I will not give a detailed review because I want other readers to be taken by surprise as well. I recommend this book to all my urban fiction lovers.
