Rightfully titled Anything 4 Profit Justin takes us through life events in an environment where you get it how you live. From the very first page all the way to the end, we were taken on a ride in which we were able to take a glimpse into the characters lives as they did pretty much anything just to gain a profit complete with a real message and serious undertones. Well done sir.

Any time you have an impoverished community, you're likely to have an infestation of drugs, and murder. Sadly, this violence is so widespread it appears to be overlooked by the law. And with each generation, the effects of this devastation get more and more out of control. In Greenville, South Carolina, the situation isn't much different from any other hood in America.
Readers are introduced to twins, Ant D. and Meka, who've had a rough life due to their mother’s drug habit. Their bond is closer than most siblings. When they meet Mike, a foster kid, he's immediately adopted into their family and the three vow to get all they can by any means possible. No job is off limits because with them, it's anything 4 a profit.
This is my second time reading Floyd. It's obvious that he has talent, as he vividly paints a picture allowing readers to feel as though they’ve been transported to South Carolina. My main issue is I felt as if Floyd teetered on the expected path instead of taking his audience to the next level. "Anything 4 Profit" is a solid story. There are issues in editing; otherwise, readers are hooked from the start.

Author Justin was very descriptive and detailed in this story and it played out like a movie! If you don't know anything about the streets you def need to check this book out! The ending will give you no choice but to get the second one. I recommend this book and can assure you...you won't be disappointed!

This was a book that the author made you feel as if you knew the characters personally. The twins as well as Mike had been through so much at young ages that made them the cold hearted persons they became. Can't wait to get started on part 2.Was this review helpful?

An Urban Gritty Tale was never told like this! From page one I wrapped myself around the gritty storyline of Ant D and Meka (twins) and what they had to do to survive the obstacles of life because of their mother's drug habit. Who knew a connection would form when they befriended a young man named Mike who faced the same struggles that poverty can bring when you're from the streets. The trio decides that they'll do anything to make sure not only will they survive BUT to come up on top no matter what. This book was filled with twists that will have you pausing for a moment but it won't take away from the excitement you will feel when you read this hot book from new comer Justin "Amen" Floyd.

This is my first book by this author and he did a wonderful job. It grabs your attention and holds you til the end. The way it ended makes me think there will be a part 2 and I will be waiting.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is the first book I have read by Justin Amen Floyd and it was a great read. I really liked the characters and they brought the drama that had me not wanting to put this book down. I'm now waiting on part 2 because I have to know what happens...Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
