Once the streets pull you in, they own you. Or at least that's the way it's been for Nautica. Growing up in the ‘hood, all she's ever known is the fast life—fast money ill-gotten through scandals and relentless scheming. But when a big scam nearly finishes her off, she decides to seek more out of life than the "hustle" and tries to make a new life for herself on the East Coast. It isn't long, though, before she falls in with Manny, a drug kingpin, who sweeps her off her feet. He promises to marry her and make her "Queen of the Street." Then everything falls apart. As their relationship unravels, both of their dark secrets are uncovered, pitting them against each other in this exciting tale of love and deception.

Baker & Taylor
After scoring a big payday, Nautica, who was raised by the streets, moves to the East Coast to start a new life, but instead gets involved with a rich and powerful drug lord who makes her his wife until past secrets turn them against each other. Original.

Seriously good action in this. I am almost 1/2 way through the book and there have been many twists that I have not seen coming. Lots of hot sex too. I am reading this whole trilogy and highly recommend JaQuavis's work if you like fast moving plots. I read his short novel The White House and it was wonderful too.
