Beginning at age 14 when she was sexually abused by her foster father, Kennedi Kramer has had a rough life. The sassy 24-year-old street chick with a taste for shots of Cîroc and Patrón lands on her feet as main girl of manipulative drug lord Sharrod. Betrayal lands her in prison doing a two-year stint, but upon her release Kennedi hits the glamorous world of Los Angeles and hooks up with Malcolm, a married hip-hop mogul who can't keep his pants zipped. Malcolm quickly launches her as a star of a reality show, and Kennedi plays up her sexy role on and off camera. But her past history is closing in fast with Sharrod thirsty for revenge and Kennedi's own twin sister, Kasey, has some issues to settle. Action in the bedroom and jealousy leading to murder has this story moving at a rapid clip. VERDICT The author's tilt-a-whirl plot becomes confusing with lots of characters popping in unexpectedly, and a case of mistaken identity involving the twins may cause eye rolls. Yet, readers will like the street lit essentials in place here: betrayal, rough sex, strip clubs, and wild gunplay. Miss KP's "Dirty Divorce" series was a hit, and this is a fine follow-up by the author. (c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
