Overview

Being the wifey of a dope boy is no easy task, just ask Fallon Hall. Late nights, early mornings, and broken promises were all that she'd ever known with Cash. Fed up with feeling like the mistress while the streets were his main chick, she broke things off with him. Now a year later, Fallon still can't get Cash out of her head and neither could he. A chance encounter with Cash reveals that he is finally ready to make his exit from the streets and marry the woman of his dreams. There's only one rift in their fairytale ever after...

What do you do when the woman you love is already taken by your older brother? That is the dilemma that Strap faces on a daily basis. He's loved Fallon since he was a teenager but she never took him seriously. Now a grown man, he knows that he'd be perfect for her, much more so than Cash. Will the pent up feelings Strap has for Fallon ultimately overpower his loyalty to his brother?

Shantreis and her boyfriend Outlaw are the epitome of hood love. They fuss and fight only to make up in the morning. It was a routine that they were familiar with for years but now it's starting to get old. Outlaw can't seem to leave his baby momma Kaleesha alone, prompting Shantreis to give him a dose of his own medicine. When an old flame named Blaze comes to town, a one-night stand turns into a whirlwind affair. It seems simple who she should choose, but after Outlaw changes his ways, the decision is even harder to make.

Drama kicks into high gear when lust, secrets, revenge, and lies come into play over women who are already taken.

Meet the Author

Georgia native Love N. Lee has had a passion for reading since she was in Pull Ups. It wasn't until she had to write a short story as a class assignment in elementary that she discovered that she liked to write and create her own stories. Love's parents and teachers took note of her talent, believing that one day she could become an author. Unfortunately, Love felt it would only remain a hobby since she thought it was too difficult to land a publishing deal. It would be nearly ten years before she picked up her pen again.

Love dropped out of college after having her son, and then relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina. While working at a call center, in-between calls and on her break, she would read urban fiction. Soon she began working on her own novel as her interest in writing returned. Thanks to a chance encounter, Love linked up with best-selling author Treasure E. Blue on a social networking site. He introduced her to other literary heavyweights that shared resources to help her perfect her craft and offered invaluable advice. After receiving encouragement and mentoring from Nakea Murray of The Literary Consultant Group and David Weaver of SBR Publications, she decided to bring her dreams to fruition.

Taking a leap of faith, Love quit her job and began writing full-time. Her novel 'Already Taken' hit virtual bookshelves in July and became an overnight bestseller. After much hard work, she is now the CEO and Founder of JME Publications, which specializes in romance books for the hood. Love currently lives in Atlanta with her four-year-old son. Outside of writing, she enjoys reality TV, K-dramas, and traveling.

I must start this review off by saying this is a must read Already Taken is the best book to be released this summer (2012). Follow Cash, Fallon, Strap, Shantreis, and Outlaw to find out what happens when love, lust, and greed play a part in their lives. Fallon and Cash where together for three years and broke up when Cash choose the streets over Fallon. Fallon and Cash reunite a year later and things appear to going well until secrets are revealed. Fallon and Strap (who is Cash brother) have history that they can't seem to forget. Outlaw loves Shantreis but can't seem to stop creeping with his baby mama Kaleesha. Shantreis decides to give Outlaw a dose of his own medicine with a fling from her past (Blaze). Outlaw gives up his doggish ways and wants to be the man Shantreis wants him to be, but is it too late? Shantreis soon realizes she wants more than just late nights with Blaze, but there is just one problem Blaze money is not as long as Outlaw. So what is Shantreis to do? I will not give the story away so you will have to read it and see the twist and turns in the story, and the ending that will have you shocked. I could not stop reading once I started the story; each page had me wanting to know what was going to happen next with the couples. I loved the way the story was written and how well the characters were developed. The end leaves you wanting to know what will happen next. For this to be the Love Lee first book it was well written. I can't wait for part 2 to be released, so Love Lee if you read this review PLEASE hurry with the sequel. I think this is the best book to be released this summer, so I gave it five stars.

This was a great book....i think i enjoyed it most because i can tell the person who wrote this is from my home state...she talked about cities from around where i'm from...like Raleigh, Zebuon, Durham...she even started off the story in Crabtree mall...she really gained my interest when i noticed that...but on to the story...i was definitely team Cash...i understood his brothers feelings but really thought by the end of the story he should have been a non factor...but i guess every story has a twist...but im hoping it ends in Cash favor...
