The story

NBA player Anthony Smith has had his share of trials and heartache. As he sits in a police station answering questions about his past, he reveals secrets, insecurities and events that led up to his possible demise.

On the basketball court, his presence was unrivaled. He was handsome; an athletically-built heartthrob with the ego to match, even in high school. All the girls wanted him, but he only had eyes for one: Traci Benson. Unfortunately, she was the reason he was sitting in an interrogation room rehashing events that occurred years ago. How could someone so small, make such a huge impact on his life and change the way he viewed the world and how he loved?

Get enthralled in this tale of love, seduction, heartbreak, and betrayal. The characters in this novel experience things we all did as teenagers, but did not have the hindsight to understand how these decisions and actions would affect us well into adulthood.

Rico J writes a page turner that leaves the reader screaming at the end in shock and leaves characters in your mind well after you have closed the back cover.
