Editorial Reviews

Laquita Adams
It is going to be so difficult reviewing this book without telling the story because there were so many excellent twists that it was crazy. From the very beginning of the prologue you will be hooked, the crazy thing is that the prologue is not even exactly what the book is about. The story gets even deeper after the death of Ern, Sharon's deceased husband. Sharon and Tone, Ern's best friend and partner, decide to comfort one another in a relationship 5 years later and the streets can't stand it
Toni M
BAD BLOOD is a story of friendship and loyalty. It also tells of betrayal, friendships torn apart, and how far the remnants fall.

Ern, Champ, Bingo and Tone were childhood friends. Their friendship, more like a brotherhood, has grown and strengthened over the years. The senseless and tragic death of one, the unspoken leader, sends each man in his own direction, while still maintaining their friendship. However, the separation allows for envy and larceny to grow in the heart of one, tri

Bad blood was an understatement, Tone was just plain crazy. In some parts of the book Tone got me so mad I had to get up and walk it off but I came back I couldn't put it down. I hope there will be a book 2, if so I can't wait to read it.

Meet the Author

Tuffy was raised in West Philadelphia. He became involved in the street life and ended up serving time in the federal detention center. Spending time in jail forced Tuffy to reevaluate the direction of his life and the decision he was making. He concluded that the street hustle was not worth all that he stood to loose so he decided to switch his hustle from bricks to books. He choose to invest in Tuff In Publications, a company that would be geared towards assisting people who come from the streets and are striving for other avenues to make money. Previously, he has invested his time and money into various ventures, both legal and illegal, but is now assured that Tuff Ink is his best investment yet.
His life experiences served as a foundation for the stories he create. Despite the fact that his books are fiction, readers are able to identify with the plots and descriptions of his stories because they are so realistic. Although Tuffy is new to the literary scene he plans for longevity in the industry.

    One Bad Apple

    BAD BLOOD is a story of friendship and loyalty. It also tells of betrayal, friendships torn apart, and how far the remnants fall.

    Ern, Champ, Bingo and Tone were childhood friends. Their friendship, more like a brotherhood, has grown and strengthened over the years. The senseless and tragic death of one, the unspoken leader, sends each man in his own direction, while still maintaining their friendship. However, the separation allows for envy and larceny to grow in the heart of one, triggering a series of events. One wrong move could mean disaster, or worse, death.

    BAD BLOOD will grab you. It qualifies as a good read and a great first effort. There were some editing issues, though you can tell there was effort put forth. But Tuffy tells such an entertaining tale that you'll overlook the flaws and keep reading on. Tuffy is what I call raw talent. He possesses obvious skill and talent, but he could use a little aid or guidance to bring out his full potential. With a solid and impressive debut, I expect to see great things from this author in the future. He's definitely on my radar.
