This was a gripping story. I was immediately caught up in the twists and turns of this story
The violence against the women was over the top and this book is not for the feeble minded.
This is an ugly tale which makes it a great read for anyone who loves Urban Erotica.
Worth the Read?
This is a book about the lengths that some people will go to make their dreams come true. It is twisted, dirty, violent, and will take you to a place that you could not imagine. If you like it raw, uninhibited, and sadistic, then this is the book for you. Candy risks it all and puts it all out the table. She is a girl on a mission. She loses herself only to find out how strong she really is. The cost of fame can be high, but, the question is what is Candy willing to pay. Solid 4 Star read.
