In the mist of tumult, Destiny is approached by Joe Blake, a respected thug, who offers her a chance to retaliate against the wrongs in her life while at the same time eradicating issues on his behalf.

Destiny finds that she is too entrenched in the game. She's already given up the love of her life, their child and has risked her freedom. After a successful run in the streets, Destiny is looking to retire her guns and knives and put her family's wants and needs first.

Joe Blake's Corporation is slowly crumbling and his freedom is at stake. Before the feds can come with the indictments, Joe is determined to make the defectors pay with their lives.

Tying up loose ends becomes complicated as Destiny is trying to get to her family, and Joe is trying to clean house. Both are thrown off balance. Will this well devised plan rock their existence?

Born Assassin is a concoction of obstacles, disorder, duplicity and slaughter. Born Assassin is a read definitely worth a recommendation.

After her loving parents are murdered, all her dreams died with them - thoughts of collage erased from her mind. Destiny Reyes becomes a bitter teenager. Not even her grandmother could save her from walking down the path to self destruction. Hanging out with 'friends' who her parents would certainly have disapprove of getting into fights and smoking was all she did now. Watching her from a far and sensing her inner demons, was Joe Blake. This crime lord ran a tight ship. Being the leader of the notorious Webster Projects Crew, Joe not only recruited ruthless killers in the Bronx, but lawyers, doctors and police were also a part of his organization. Knowing who was responsible for the death of Destiny's parents, (and also having his own motive) he approached Destiny with a proposition this girl could not refuse. A business relationship is formed between the two, which consists of loyalty, trust and respect. Oh...and of course plenty of assassinations! A few years have flown by and Destiny has blossomed into a beautiful, sexy femme fatale. She'll blind a brother with her beauty, make love to him with her body, then slit his throat from ear to ear without blinking twice! Step into the stiletto heels of Destiny Reyes as she becomes Joe Blakes number one Gangsta B****! Called upon only for 'sensitive' cases, Destiny becomes an expert in the killing game. Joes is very please with her work and pays her handsomely, but there's trouble in paradise. There's a rat among the crew, Suspicions are heightened and loyalties are tested. On top of that Destiny has to watch her back. There's someone who wants her dead...and it's closert to home than she thinks. Jatye a.k.a 'Trustice Gentles' laid it down in this book! Destiny is provocative smart and sexy but a true born killer. I lived her life right along with her as I read the story. A nice easy read and believe me you won't put it down. The first chapter grabbed my attention along with Jatye's hip classy style of writing. Althought it seems as if a sequel is in order, this book is one satisfied read.
