I would stop reading it because all the angst of drama between Dre and Jev is saddening but I've become addicted to read their story. Ironically the author is a fan of the show as well, so it make sense why his books are dark with many surprises.
Jan 02, Stanley Clay rated it it was amazing. Full disclosure. I became acquainted with author J. In those two years this young now 25 years old , gifted and black Jamaican writer has written and published seven—yes seven—astonishing full length novels to much critical acclaim. Writers E. Although he looks up to me as a dear friend and mentor, it would be a literary disservice for me not to publicly sing the praises of this prodigious and prolific young writer.
Objectively speaking, J. Lewis is simply one of the most promising new literary voices to come along in quite a while. Lewis continues the tale of anti-hero Jamaican American mafia crown prince Dre Malcolm of the powerful mixed-race Malcolm family, and his courageous but life-threatening same sex affair with his handsome, young and sensitive through-hell-and-back Jamaican lover Jevaughn Wilson.
But not Dre. He was the boss, and he was going to live the life he loved, regardless of what his four remaining prestigious uncles, mafia-granddad, or even his own father thought. I was the do-as-they-tell-you kind of guy: go to school, get a good education, and take over the family business. Live like everyone else and then die, leaving my children to continue what generations before me had started. Where were the joys of carefree living and the thrills of not knowing what tomorrow may bring?
Where was the pang of hunger and not being able to pay the bills? Too much privilege left me scarred and empty…unworldly lonely. Feelings blossom. Although he has strong feelings for Kraigie that are more than reciprocal, he openly longs for Dre. And even with the threat of death, he must see his true love one last time. Kraigie understands, and sacrifices his own feelings to take Jevaughn to America to be with Dre.
What follows is a complicated and totally engaging roller-coaster ride of complex emotions and non-stop action. With operatic passion Lewis fills his pleading and bleeding characters with twisted nobility as they kill enemies and family in the name of honor and fall on the sword in the name of love.
Aging kingpins are massacred in their beds and young children are orphaned right before their eyes. Best friends are forced to fight to the death for the vengeful amusement of mafia dons and their henchmen. And just as the horizon lights up with the possibility of a happily-ever-after for our young lovers Dre and Jevaughn, fate rears its ugly head with a cliff-hanging ending. This gripping novel jumps head-first into the controversy of Jamaican homophobia, same-sex marriage, racism, family loyalty, betrayal, and even offers a touching and beautiful transgender storyline. Even if I would have never met Mr.

After reading the ARC for book 7 I had to go back and start reading all the other books to the series and I am glad I did. I didn't have to but because I am addicted to J. Lewis's books now, I needed to. If you haven't started reading his books yet, get on board because they will definitely take you on a hell of a ride. Nov 09, Karen rated it it was amazing.
