Three guys Gary, Cabrien and Armando and a whole lot of choices that could change their lives in drastic ways. I think a part of me liked this book because of the complexity of the decisions each character had to make and how it was interwoven with their racial background, however the other part felt like the author left so many unresolved issues- and let's admit it, the ending could have gone either way, it just had to go the way that it ought to at the time.
Thanks Netgalley for the eARC.

This book was in complete to me even though the writing was good I still did not get the ending I was looking for.. Many unresolved issues.

Do not let the cover fool you. This is A very good book overall. Yes, there are gay characters, but do not let that deter you as there are also straight characters. The characters are all connected in some way to each other, finding out how is the joy of reading the book. I will look for more from this author. Thanks to Netgalley, the author and the publisher for the arc of this book in return for my honest review. Receiving this book in this manner had no bearing on this review.

I do not know what to make of this book. It was published in 2016, so I'm not sure why NetGalley gave me a review copy, but I'm not complaining. It's about three main characters, all African American - Cabrian, who is gay and a bit in love with Drake, Drake who is gay (and out) and who works for a Black Republican organisation and Armando, who is straight but has lost his job and needs money. There are complex relationships between all of them, and other characters, and it's quite the tangle. The plot weaves and twists, but it's mainly personality driven. The ending could have gone either way, but how it went (no spoilers) was quite satisfying., 
This book was king of trashy, but I could not put it down. I'm glad I read it.
