Overview

“A compelling and sinister tale of sex and suspense…”

“An intense, eye-opening story with an intricately woven plot guaranteed to have you trapped from the opening scene. Readers beware! This intimate, yet street portrayal of a brother scorned will have you glued to the pages.”

“Hen-Rock” Jacobs is a wealthy, legit, self-made man. But the handsome and dapper manager of platinum Hip Hop duo, Beef & Broc had a dark past. As a child, he was mistreated, unloved, and neglected by a dope fiend mother who sacrificed him for heroin.
A goodhearted hustler rescued him from a life in hell, but the sexual abuse left Hen-Rock with an entrenched hatred for the Black woman.

Despite the odds against him, Hen-Rock later found success. Money, fame, and the finest cars allowed him his pick of “flawless” women. But from the lavish lifestyle he adopted, he soon learns the harsh lesson that the grass on the other side ain’t always greener.

A discovery of the “unthinkable” leaves Hen-Rock utterly distraught. Miserable and harboring THE GRUDGE of the century, he vengefully embarks on a mission of mayhem, using SEX AS A WEAPON to spitefully dish out payback and destroy. But in his twisted quest for street justice, will Hen-Rock have the final ruling, or will the path lead to his demise? Journey inside these pages to find out now.

This ingenious Caroline McGill novel is a story of lost faith, and redemption. You will find yourself in awe at this raw, gritty depiction of choices and consequences. This story is a classic. Five star novelist Caroline McGill has done it again!

    I really enjoyed this book... im not sure what i though I would

    I really enjoyed this book... im not sure what i though I would be reading before I started it and im upset with myself that it took me so long to getting around to read this book but i really enjoyed it.

    The author does such a great job of showcasing each character and allowing the readers to see how they are. This book is filled with Drama and Grudge and lies, but it teaches the reader such a valuable lesson.

    Hen Rock is one of the main characters that as you get to read your just like wow and not in a good way. Most book talk about the females who are angry but Hen Rock carries so much around with him and has such a grudge especially towards a specific group of women that it is crazy.

    Hen Rock goes through a lot in his lifetime amd something major happens to him that changes him in a bad way but after a while it becomes an eye opner for him to change himself. I cant say to much because I dont want to spoil anything for anyone.

    Will HenRock be able to change his life or will the grudges he holds towards woman ruin his life. Need to read to find out!

    The author does a great job showing the importance of knowing who you sleep with. Just because someone doesnt look sick or because they look fine doesnt mean that something may not be wrong with them.

    Ok Read

    The book was just ok to me. It started off interesting but the story just got way too far fetched as it went on. It did have some positive messages in it. I had to make myself finish the book.

    GRUDGE + REVENGE = PAYBACK

    Hen-Rock cannot fathom going back to his darker days with a crack addicted mother and her pedophile pusher. Still dealing with his past demons, Hen-Rock has a hate for all black women. With being a manager to the hot duo, Beef and Broccoli, it is hard to not deal with sexy black women constantly in their faces trying to get with them and wanting to be in the latest video. Hen-Rock has no worries at home because his Asian wife is the only female he can trust. <BR/><BR/>Beef is fresh out of jail and doing big thangs. Making music and making money is his top priority besides Allah. He makes sure that he gives back to the young brothers in the hood trying to come up but knows that his job would never be fully done. <BR/><BR/>Broccoli has a lot to be thankful for, his music career, his best friend Beef and his beautiful pregnant wife. He can only continue praying that with money does not come problems. <BR/><BR/>Sometimes you can tell a really good (or in this case hot) author by the making of their sophomore novel, you never know what to expect. Caroline's sophomore is definitely a page turner and worth your dollars and cents. Caroline's raw technique continues to make her stand out from the rest. <BR/><BR/>Reviewed by: LaDonna

    Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right

    Grudge: resentment or ill will over some grievance. Hen-Rock Jacobs was wronged. At a time in his life when he needed love, comfort and security most, instead he was abused and neglected. As a result, he has a huge chip on his shoulder. He has become jaded and bitter. To say he has a grudge is almost an understatement. His grudge, or ill will, is eating away at him - literally. He eats, thinks and breathes it. He's not mad at the whole world, just a particular population...black women. Will his misdirected anger be his downfall? Again, author Caroline McGill sheds light on the subject of HIV/AIDS through a gritty and compelling novel. The Grudge: Misery Loves Company is a piquant story filled with winding drama. Caroline, do you ma! Keep dropping that enlightenment one book at a time.
