Tirrell Ellis has always felt like an outcast. His loving grandmother takes him in after the death of his parents and his very existence becomes the source of much conflict between him and his half-brother.
Feelings of being unwanted fester inside Tirrell and he eventually explodes in fits of anger. His unbridled temper gets him booted out of the military, and he violently unleashes his frustration on his girlfriend when he discovers a secret that she's been harboring.
Tirrell believes things are finally turning around in his favor when he meets Alexandra Solomon. Blinded by the trappings of the lifestyle she offers him, he ignores the warnings of his grandmother to stay away from her.
By the time Tirrell finds out that Alex Solomon is not who she appears to be, it's almost too late, as he puts his life and the lives of his family in danger.
With his world falling to ruin, will Tirrell be able to right the wrongs he's done and prove that he's not he pariah his family believes him to be?

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. Reviewed by: Toni
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.
