Overview

Jewel is young and beautiful, and with several hustles under her belt, she's all about making money. This doesn't leave much time for friends, but she'll always make time for Touch, the local hustler. He's been her friend since grammar school, when they made a lifelong pact to look out for each other. Lucky for them, their promise has never been put to the test-until now. When Michael Burroughs arrives on the scene from L.A., he floods the East Coast with top-notch product, and quickly earns his title as the California Connection-Calico for short. He's also a smooth brotha with a knack for getting whatever he wants out of women then tossing them to the side. When he meets Jewel, sparks fly, and things quickly spin out of control. Touch knows how Calico operates and doesn't want to watch his friend get used and abused. Little does he know, he doesn't have to worry about her, because Jewel has a few tricks of her own. When Calico shows his true colors, Jewel knows just how to get revenge. Will her plans backfire, or will she be the last woman standing?

    Come check this out!

    California connection was a pretty good read and the characters were believable. It was like I was there in the story as things were taking place. I really look forward to reading more from this author.

    I'm not into books at all, but if I see or hear something is interesting, I try it. If the first couple of pages don't interest me, I put it down!

    Again, I am not a big reader at all. My friend was reading the book and began telling me a little about the story, She had been readig the book for several days. Once she finished, the book was on the table several days later, I picked the book up and finished in a day and a half. Only put it down for a few reasons
    one, work, two, sleep and three, restroom lol. It was very good, the ending was crazy, can't wait for part two. Just saw the cover, I don't know if that's Sasha, or Jewel's new look, but I would love to see how Touch and Calico look, (bet they fine) I have already pre-ordered my copy for December 1st, my xmas present to myself and have selected one day service.

    very good overall.

    It Was Alright....Not Better Than The Gangster Girl Saga

    The book was okay overall....but the book was so irrelevant...like what was the point of the book....I liked the characters and all...but there really was no story 2 me....just another book about a gold digger turned good, sex (great sex parts though), and envious friends....but what book isnt that in....Chunichi could've came better than that is all i'm saying....it could sit on my bookshelf, but would definately not be 1 of my favorites.....

    California Connection

    This book was GREAT!! I can't wait until California Connection 2 comes out. I couldn't put it down and I've already told all my friends to get it. Chunichi is an amazing author and I highly recommend that you read all her books. I'm a fan for life.
