Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The hottest new author in street fiction, Méta Smith now delivers the tale of a female DJ who won't settle for anything less than the most desired men, the heights of the mad-glamourous life, and dreams that people would die for.

Review:

"Maddeningly clichd, yet as entertaining as daytime talk show brawls, Smith's second novel treads on the same turf as her street lit debut, Rolexxx Club: the hip-hop gutter. When Bobbi Hayes, a sexual conquistador and 'one of the hottest DJs in Miami,' crosses paths with Mikhail Petrov, a shady club owner of the Russian underworld persuasion, she falls easily under the sway of the immensely and illicitly rich Mikhail and accepts a DJ job on his yacht cruise to Greece. He eventually gives her the run of Babylon, the Hope diamond of the Miami club scene. Money can't buy love, but it certainly numbs the senses of the supposedly streetwise Bobbi, who is used by Mikhail as a front for devious activity that all but the dead, blind or totally nave could see. As the relationship between Bobbi and Mikhail hits the skids and bodies start dropping, Bobbi turns to hunky club security chief Q in one last effort to find someone to trust. But is it too late? The cornucopia of sex, name dropping and hip-hop melodrama is bound to be gobbled up by fans of the genre." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

An aspiring DJ flees her affluent upbringing and begins an affair with a mysterious stranger in a sizzling new street novel from the author of "The Rolexxx Club."
