Overview

Tirrell Ellis has always felt like an outcast. His loving grandmother, Betty, took him in after the death of his parents, but because he is the product of an affair, his half-brother, Kevin, refuses to accept him. Kevin reminds Tirrell often that he is their father's bastard son. Tirrell carries his hurt and shame with him, and it fuels his temper.

At twenty-two, he's kicked out of the Army for nearly killing a fellow Private. Later, he unleashes his rage on the girlfriend who aborted his child.

Tirrell believes things are turning around for him when he meets Alexandra Solomon. He is so blinded by her lifestyle of wealth and glamour that he ignores the warnings of his grandmother. Betty doesn't trust Alex, and it turns out she has a good reason.

Alex is a major player in the drug trade, and it's not long before Tirrell gets caught up, becoming addicted to cocaine. The relationship with Alex falls apart, and when he threatens to reveal what he knows about her business, she warns him that she will hurt his family.

Tirrell's life is thrown into chaos when his grandmother is shot. He seeks revenge by attacking Alex's cousin, but now he's attracted the attention of Xavier Rivera, the head of Alex's organization. With mayhem and danger all around him, will Tirrell be able to get his life back on track?

    Black Sheep

    Tirrell Ellis has always been an outcast, never really fitting in anywhere. The product of an extramarital affair with a huge chip on his shoulder, he isn’t the easiest person to get along with. As he tries to navigate his way through life and the streets of Atlanta, Tirrell thinks he may have finally found his niche in life when he meets Alexandra Solomon, a wealthy, older woman. But things aren’t always what they seem.

    With an interesting premise, “Outcast” had the potential to be a good story, but it didn’t reach its full potential. It weighed itself down. The 300 plus page story dragged in spots. Even though there was action, I felt the story simply took too long to get to its point. In the meantime, instead of becoming invested in the characters more and more as the story progressed, I lost interest in them.

    Not a bad book by any means, “Outcast” is a book that will have a hard time finding its place in an overcrowded market. I have read something else by this author and think the author is talented. I just don’t believe this is the author’s best work.

    Awesome book! I can't wait until part 2 comes out to see what Alex gets into and to see if the brothers bond is still intact.
