Dell Banks was born on the 13th day of November in Detroit,Michigan. He was raised in between Chicago and Detroit. Dell's way with words have captivated the hearts and minds of many.

He attended Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan where he majored in Journalism. After becoming the voice behind many powerful and meaningful poems, Dell decided to pen a novel. Stepping out completely on faith, he started his own publishing company, Heir To The Throne Publications,rightfully named after his daughter, not giving anyone the chance to accept or reject his work. Dell said, "I believed in myself first and I wanted totally control over my first project." He serves as the Publisher/CEO. His debut novel "Shady" is the first release for the company. Dell resides in Metropolitan Detroit where he is hard at work on his follow-up novel. For more information log on to dellbanks.com

    HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PAGE TURNER!

    My Review:
    I was so excited to be able to review an advance copy of this book! I just purchased a Kindle and I downloaded the pdf copy of this book from Dell Banks to my Kindle. This was the first book that I read on my new Kindle, and I couldn't have picked a better book! Plus, the story takes place in Detroit. I am from Michigan, so it was cool to read a book set in my home state!

    This book starts off with a bang! It has my full attention. I am already feeling sorry for the "ghetto Cinderella, living on the Northwest side of Detroit" (p3). Her mom sounds like a real witch. It's too bad she doesn't know who her real dad is. I hope she finds him someday. I have tears in my eyes reading her diary entry.

    I love that Dell Banks adds humor to his book as well. The quote "I wrapped my legs around his waist tighter than a lug nut on a tire and flipped him on his back and began to ride his dick like it was our last time." p14 was funny! Dell Banks really sounds like a fun guy to be around just from the humor added to his book.

    The sex in this book, wow! Come on, when you look at the sexy woman on the book cover, you know there has to be some sex! You know he got my juices flowing when GiGi was with the detective!

    Wow! I am impressed with Dell Banks! What an awesome book! He did a great job creating characters that came to life! This book was full of drama and kept me turning pages like crazy! The end has me wondering what is going to happen in the next book, and I can't wait to read that one!

    Favorite New Words (Phrases) From This Book:
    "monthy girlfriend" (that is a different way to look at a period!) p.8
    "one-eyed monster" p.14

    Quote:

    p30
    Craig was lost for words. He hadn't been able to understand why Greta had so much hate in her heart for her daughter. But today, the light has shed upon the real reason; Greta was jealous of her daughter and hated the fact that Giselle was living the life she always wanted to live.

    This book dealt with a lot of Shady people from boyfriends to mothers so the title really says it all. This book was filled with a lot of drama that kept me flipping through the pages to find out more. I wanted to know what was gong to happen next or who was going to do something crazy. Even those in the story you dont think are going to be Shady wind up being shady smh... cant wait for part two of this book! The book was good had a few minor editing mishaps but other than that i enjoyed it!!
