Overview

JAMES SKIER aka "Skee" has a raw perception of women: they're here to take care of him. And his 18-year-old girlfriend, Ariana Houston, does just that. Her parents accepted him and her father even offers him a job ... but he has a better idea ... he wants to sell dope. Unbeknownst to Ariana, he finds a weed plug in the only person he knows will front him the product, an aged and respected gangster from his old neighborhood. Skee sells out fast and it seems that he's found his niche. Even when he gets robbed at gunpoint, he switches to selling powder cocaine and hustles harder. He moves out his mother's house and, with pride, treats his girl to a shopping spree-but under the guise that he has a real job. That very night, though, after a heated argument, he tells her he sells drugs and she storms out.
Does he care? No. He has bigger problems that threaten to tear down his newfound success.

ARIANA HOUSTON devoted herself to being the perfect girlfriend to Skee despite the rumors she heard that he's a cheater. But when she finds out he sells drugs, she leaves him. Her best friend, Brandy, is happy for her new singleness and encourages her to go out with Ronnell "Scrill" Jackson, a well-paid brotha that goes to their college. Soon after she sleeps with him, she feels a painful guilt, as if she cheated on Skee. That guilt turns to horror when she finds out that Scrill sells drugs too ... and that someone very close to her is his boss. And they're planning to kill Skee!
Will she be able to warn her ex-boyfriend in time?
Should she ...?

James Skier aka "Skee" is living off his girlfriend, Ariana Houston. Ariana is the daughter of Joseph Houston, the owner of an automobile dealership. Skee is tired of living off Ariana and bumming rides from his friend Charles, so he comes up with an idea to make some money. Skee has the idea that he can make it big in the drug business. But he is in for a rude awakening. He doesn't know who all of the players are in this game and the answer will surprise him and a few others. In the midst of all of this, Skee is trying to keep his secret from his mother and Ariana. Jordan Belcher's "Blacktop Hustlaz" moves at a fairly fast pace with characters that had me shaking my head. The editing seemed to gradually decline in the latter part of the book. Also, some of the events that occur were really unrealistic and there wasn't one policeman in the whole book; thus a town without police. Reviewed by: Sophia
