A brainy poet pretends to be a sexed-up hip-hop star in this steamy urban novel by passionate living expert and TV personality Abiola Abrams.

BRIMMING WITH ELECTRIC SENSUALITY, DARE IS AN UNFORGETTABLE ODYSSEY OF TWO GUTSY WOMEN PLAYING BY THEIR OWN RULES.

Provocative filmmaker Abiola Abrams pushes the boundaries with her entertaining and “enlightening” (Rawsistaz) urban fiction debut!

Double-dipped in cocoa with brick-house curves, Maya Hope is a lover of jazz, a political poet, and a sociologist. Her best friend and roommate, Athena Jackson, is her opposite in every way—a petite ex-cheerleader who’s always blaring rap, grinding out rhymes, and ready to take the next man home. When Maya is forced to pinch-hit in an audition and bust Athena’s rhymes, she finds herself on an undercover escapade in the wild world of hip-hop as the raw, sexy, roughneck Jezebel. After striking a deal with her own personal devil, Maya sets off on the tempting roller-coaster ride of a lifetime— finding music, more fun than she’s ever had, and even a man or two . . . but not without consequences.
