Just when Promise had gotten use to the good life things went downhill. Her parents were arrested and later imprisoned because of a snitch who hid behind false pretenses causing DEFACS to step in and make her a ward of the state.
Now all she wants is out! Escaping the clutches of the system, Promise runs back to her old hood. There she runs into her mother's childhood friend's nephew and together they devise a way to get paid.
Promise never imagined she would end up engulfed in a world of stripping and escort services. She took it all in stride for the love of the money but will the life she lead make her or break her?

    Great Ride

    I loved the way that this book was laid out. The characters in the book were very personable and i truly felt as if I knew the main character myself. It was a page turner from page one and the plot only seemed to thicken more as i continued to read further into the book. I cant wait to start part 2 to see where Promise ends up next

    I have had this book sitting on my nook for some time now, so I am happy that this book was chosen as a book discussion book, because I enjoyed it.

    Promise Brown grew up living the life any young girl growing up in the projects would want to live. Both her parents Sweat Pea and Biggs made sure she was well taken care of giving her everything she needed and wanted. Her parents were the head of a large drug empire in their neighborhood, and while they could have chosen to live anywhere they stayed grounded and continued to live in the projects. Of course staying in the same hood where they did their dirt caused them people to be jealous of the family and envious towards them. Everything seems to be going great in their life that is until someone among them turns into a snitch sending Promise into the foster care system, Sweat Pea in jail, and costs Biggs his life. Having to grow up faster than she needed to, and having to deal with the dreaded foster care system, Promise is determined to get her life back. Promise runs back to the only thing she has ever really known and is comfortable with and that’s her old hood. Being in her own hood she runs into a familiar face that offers to help Promise out until she gets on her own feet. Looking for a quick get up, and knowing she has plenty hustle in her blood she seeks out a childhood friend who finds a gig for her. Never did Promise think that getting fast money would lead to her being the head stripper in an upscale gentlemen’s club. Will Promise be able to get in and make her money or will her money make her?

    The story of Promise is sadly a story that many young ladies probably go through with being in the system, having no parents and trying to make it on their own. Promise is a young girl who was robbed of a family life due to the actions of her parents as well as someone being jealous. Promise goes through a lot and is taught many valuable lessons about trust and trusting people. Those who may be close to you may be the first one to turn on you and Promise has to learn that the hard way. The book was very fast paced and I was able to enjoy it, it was like you could understand everything she was going through. The story did have some editing issues that I wish would have been fixed so that I could give the book a 5. Overall, I enjoyed it and I am about to jump all into part two Black Ice to see what is going to happen next. Great Job to this author she is one you should not sleep on, I see big things for her.

    Promise

    Promise revealed a girl with some unfortunate circumstances and what came about as a result of that a few hidden occurences. Not a bad story, closer to the end it seemed a bit rushed with grammatical errors and even an exact duplicate sentence. Headed to the sequel in a bit. Overall a good look.

    This was a great read I enjoyed it alot. It was a kind of short

    This was a great read I enjoyed it alot. It was a kind of short book, but I think the author is preparing us for a even better 2nd part. I can't wait to see what happens with Promise. I hope she comes out on top cause she's been through enough already.
