Book Review

I was given this book as a gift and it was truly a wonderful gift. I started reading it at 11am and finished it at 5:19 pm. I could not put it down until it was done. I am anxiously awaiting the next book because I have to know what happens next. I can’t wait to see how the new generation of the Gage brothers handle things. I know they will take things to a completely different level from their father. BlaccTopp did an excellent job and Treasure Blue and Faye Wilkes I thank you from the bottom of my heart for recommending this book.
Hustle Chronicles Part 2
With Booty Green dead and Julius Jr. being framed for his murder, Naje’, Devon and Angelica scramble to keep Julius from spending the rest of his life in prison. Yellow Shoes and Rabbit want them dead, the Barrera brothers need them alive and their women just want them safe. But Devon and Julius are making more enemies than friends. Angelica is pregnant with Julius’ child and all she wants and needs is a “normal” life, but the Gage family is far from normal. They are a family caught up in lust, wrath, greed, pride, and envy. Five of the seven deadly sins that threaten to tear their family to shreds in this high powered tale of treachery, deceit and murder.
Book Review
I couldn’t wait to get The Hustle Chronicles 2 home and get reading. This book was way more than I could of ever expected. Usually the first book is hard to beat but this book had so many unexpected twists and turns. I could never of imagined what I was about to read next that I actually stayed up half the night reading because I could not put this book down. Blacc Top, you deserve way more than the five stars allowed on the page. The story of the Gage family is so intense and the love for one another could never be measured on any scale. The avenues taken and trails left behind will leave such an impression that anyone who reads this book will be thirsting for more that when they read the third book this will not be enough, we will only be left wanting more and more and more.Not one little detail was missed in this book, from the first book to the second every detail followed each part like a puzzle. The story was so mind catching that you would have known if something was out of place. Great writing! I cannot wait for the third book although once that book is read I will be somewhat sad that it will be the end of the Chronicles. I would love to continue following the life of the Gage family as it so interesting. I’m sure we will have many more great books to read from our Famous Author that no matter what it is he writes it will take our minds for another exciting journey. BTW, love that Shayla!

Thank you for opening your mind to all of us and sharing your talents!
