Jaicyn had a
lot on her plate for a high-schooler. With a mother strung out on drugs, she
had to play the mother role for her two younger sisters. Not knowing where her next meal was coming from, and needing clothes and basic necessities to survive, she has to
do what she has to do to take care of her younger siblings, even if that
includes dropping out of school. With CPS at her front door, Jaicyn will do

an upcoming hustler from around the way. Rayshawn had a leadership quality
about him, and he was being groomed by one of the biggest dealers in the
city named King. Rayshawn and his twin brother Dayshawn were totally different, but
they had one thing in common: they hated the situation they were in. Their
mother was tragically killed by their father and their whole life was uprooted
when they had to move in with their grandparents. Rayshawn meets Jaicyn and
they begin a whirlwind romance, but things take a change for the worse when
Jaicyn takes a charge for Rayshawn and is sent away. Upon Jaicyn's return,
Rayshawn is on a whole new level and things are not the same. Will Rayshawn and
Jaicyn be able to weather the storm, or will their relationship just be a thing
of the past?
The author Jackie Chanel presented a great storyline that was highly entertaining and a quick read. It flowed very
well and kept my attention. I can’t wait to read Hustler’s Promise 2 to find
out where all the characters end up.
