[FWD: Halala Newsletter - Urban Reviews Highlighted for True To The Game II]
True To The Game II by Teri Woods "True To the Game II is a wonderful sequel to True To the Game. Teri Woods effortlessly continued the story of Gena. This story picks up right where the first novel left off so it doesn't confuse the reader." www.urban-reviews.com
