"Queen Pynn" by Keisha Ervin

"Trick, Don't Treat" by Brenda Hampton
When a man thinks his woman is cheating, he keeps tabs on her. When a woman thinks her man is cheating, she calls Jakki. Rochel "Jakki" Thomas's way of catching a man in the act is a little risky, but she's worth every penny.
"Breaking Down a Brickhouse" by Edd McNair
Niecy Brickhouse and her twin sister are living the glamorous life—until Naquel is shot by their older sister's boyfriend. Everyone is calling it a suicide, but Niecy knows the painful truth about her sister's death, and it sets her on a dangerous, self-destructive path. Will she be able to overcome her depression, or will her new life on the streets be the death of Niecy?
