Street Lit for Your Shelves

Drama, mystery, romance, and more abound in these new and forthcoming urban fiction titles:

THE CARTEL 6: THE DEMISE by Ashley & JaQuavis
The Cartel’s plan to open a casino will rake in cash, but comes with great sacrifice: a dead girl, a scorned wife, traitors, and one hole in the desert will launch a chain of catastrophic events and a fight with the Arabian mob. “The story’s turns and surprises, paired with its unflinching studies of emotional pain and physical pleasure make this an excellent, exciting read for newcomers, longtime Cartel followers, and all urban-lit fans.” — Booklist

THE REAL MRS. PRICE by J.D. Mason
Two women, both married to the same man, come together to find out where he is—and who he really is. “Mason writes a murky whodunit with a touch of the supernatural… Push this one to readers who enjoy an atmospheric novel with plenty of twists and turns.” — Library Journal

DIAMONDS AND PEARL by K’wan
In this street lit take on Romeo and Juliet, a young gangster in New Orleans falls for the daughter of a Harlem drug kingpin. “The author of HOOD RAT and GUTTER excels in his latest title, and his ear for street slang remains sharp and on point. The abrupt ending leaves readers thirsty for more. Let’s hope there’s a sequel in the mix as this is one of the top urban fiction novels of the year.” — Library Journal, starred review & pick of the month

LUXE TWO: A LaLa Land Addiction by Ashley Antoinette
In this sequel to LUXE, Bleu Montclair is addicted to the luxe life and it has led her down a road of self-destruction. Now two separate loves want to rescue her—will she let them? Or will she be lost to her addictions? “Throughout the novel, Antoinette provides a sobering viewpoint of addiction and how drug use destroys not just one life but whole families. On her own or as part of the popular married urban fiction duo Ashley and JaQuavis, Antoinette is one of the genre’s hottest writers. Buy multiple copies to meet demand.” — Library Journal
