Overview

Omar Tyree -- writing as The Urban Griot -- delivers a thrilling novel about a jaded college girl who when scorned becomes more lethal than the hardened criminal with whom she falls in love.
When Janeia Goode, a beautiful undergrad studying psychology at Chicago State University, meets Warren Hamilton, known as Molasses --or Moe for short -- she knows he is dangerous, and yet she finds him to be exciting, mysterious, and undeniably sexy. Janeia realizes that she is a good girl in love with a bad boy -- and she must keep his life as a hit man a secret, or else.
Although Moe does reveal to Janeia his life as a paid killer, and she seems to accept it, his skill as a notorious womanizer proves to be his most dangerous habit. After an attempt on Moe's life lands him in an emergency room, he begins to reconsider his many enemies, but he does not take into account the scorned women he has manipulated over the years, up to and including his current love, Janeia.
Soon Moe and Janeia are locked in a deadly game ruled by pride, passion, and the desire for love, loyalty, and vengeance. Cold Blooded will thrill readers who are already hooked on Tyree's racy tales of urban reality and romance.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Chicago hit man does what a hit man does-again and again. If there's anything funnier than Omar Tyree (Leslie, 2002, etc.) donning the thugged-out pen name used on College Boy and other paperback originals, it's watching him try to write in a style that will justify this moniker. As if trying to find a protagonist to suit the subtitle, the Griot comes up with deadly, sugary-smooth assassin-for-hire Molasses. We start off in a low-rent motel room in St. Louis-though it might as well be Anchorage for all we can tell. Molasses is putting the moves on Janeia, a good girl from Chicago who likes her mysterious boyfriend and doesn't ask too many questions. Which is good, because he wants to take care of some business while in town, and business means putting bullets in some guy, complete with the Griot-supplied, italicized sound effects ("Theessrrpp! Bloom!"). It's always a guy, because Molasses, like your average fictional hit man, doesn't kill women or children. (Even a killer has limits.) After Molasses returns home to Chicago, he has a hit in Dallas, then a job in Brooklyn, then others that pile up, each event described with all the alacrity that one would expect from a kid raised on bad TV ("the hit-man business paid well, but the shit was a real hassle sometimes"). In between, easy-on-the-eyes Molasses gets to have his way with just about any woman who crosses his path. Janeia doesn't mind the killer part so much, but when she finds out that Molasses is having a lot on the side, she gets into a bit of a snit. There's not much else here in the story department other than the possibility that the hit-man's white partner might be setting him up; Molasses simply goes from one kill and one girlto the next with sleep-inducing regularity. A poor man's Donald Goines, or a really, really poor man's Chester Himes. Author tour

Read an Excerpt


Chapter One

Moe...Molasses...was the sexiest man I have ever been with in my life...

It's strange sometimes to imagine what an adventurous young chick will do for the attention and company of an unpredictable man. Nowadays, or at least in black urban America, it seems that the most desirable cats, the real heartthrobs, are the coldhearted, thug niggas. Of course, most of them don't start off that way. They generally start off as rough around the edges mystery men, possessing obvious amounts of sex appeal that these young women find to be intoxicating. Such was the case with Janeia Goode and her man, Molasses, who were held up in a low-budget hotel room in St. Louis.

The digital clock on the oak-wood nightstand read 8:16 P.M. Janeia stood not far from it, posing with her legs together in a black dress, with a high split up the right thigh. She was a caramel-coated diamond chick, sharper than a motherfucker. In the palms of her delicate hands she held the nickel-plated steel of a nine-millimeter pistol. She aimed it at the dresser mirror like a gangster chick.

"Spread your legs and lock your arms," Molasses's confident voice instructed her from behind. He stepped up and gripped her arms, while slowly kicking her feet apart against the deep gray carpeted floor. He wore a camel-colored wool suit with an off-white silk button-up shirt and no tie.

Janeia smiled at his touch, but only for a second before she pulled the trigger of the gun into her reflection in the mirror.

Click!

That's when Molasses smiled. He could feel the excitement running through her sexy-ass body as she continued to hold the unloaded pistol in her hands. She wanted his danger. He knew it from the moment she took his cell phone number when he first met her. She was patiently waiting at the bus stop on 83rd Street in their hometown of Chicago. She probably would have allowed him to drive her to her destination that day...if he had offered to.

He asked into her right ear as she handled his gun, "It feels powerful, doesn't it?"

Janeia looked into the mirror at his sly smile as he held her close from behind. He was dark and insatiable, like ghetto romance, determined to happen. A single platinum chain shone across his neck under his open-collar shirt. His hard-edged body was as firm as the steel of his gun.

In her response, Janeia nodded and grinned at him through her reflection in the mirror.

"Yeah," she answered. "I like power."

Molasses grinned and read the anticipation on her face. He then slid his hands away from her arms to caress her pert breasts. That was what she wanted, to be fondled the right way and undressed for seduction by a man who knew what the hell he was doing. Janeia had no patience for half-scared amateur niggas who would hesitate. A real man knew what he wanted and seized it with authority.

So Molasses kissed her back and unhooked her bra, like a real man would. He then nudged her head slightly forward with his, so that he could bury his lips into her hair, deep enough to find a naked spot on her neck to kiss.

And oh, how she melted when he reached down between her legs and touched her there, while pulling down the spaghetti straps of her dress.

It was what she wanted, a real good fucking from a mysterious thug nigga. And when he undressed her and stretched her naked body across the bed to penetrate, Molasses even let her hold his gun against his bare back, while he spanked her where it felt good and made her squeal for Jesus to forgive her for her sins.

    COLD Blooded and then some

    The title says it all, from the first chapter to the end, Moe is a cold blooded character. It was kind of short but the point was made very well. If you like drama, suspense, action and sex; then buy this book.

    A hot blooded story

    This book was a incredible read. Saying a story is a 'page turner' makes it seem trite, but this book was exactly that, a 'a page turner'. Action packed and drama filled, a reader of the hardcore fiction will not be disappointed.
