Summary

The Freedom Brothers are first cousins who built a brotherly bond while growing up in their grandmother's home in Terror Town. Epic, Angel, and Bishop Freedom eventually matured from little boys to men who run the blocks of the East Side of Chicago neighborhood. Women love them, and men want to be them. Yet, this story about the Freedom Brothers is far from your typical hood tale.

Once the Freedom crew had established themselves in the game, Epic Freedom chose to settle down with his beautiful wife, Bella. Yet, their enchanting romance was short-lived. For five years, Epic never met another woman like Bella...until he literally ran into Honey Sampson. Honey is a single mother with an evil ex-husband who refuses to be a part of their three kid's lives. Yet, Honey does not allow this to ruin her. She does what many single mothers have to do: She adjusts her crown and handles her business. Her days are filled with juggling parental duties, working double shifts, and obtaining her bachelor's online. Then, she has a fearful encounter with a stranger that leads to a romance that seems unreal. During her and Epic's courtship, she is constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop. Like the old saying goes, you shall have what you say. Unfortunately, Honey has spoken so much doubt into her and Epic's relationship that eventually, the shoe does come crashing down on their perfection, shattering her heart and ruining their happily ever after.

Bishop Freedom is a gentle giant. He hides his whirlwind emotions by violently wreaking havoc on those who ask for it. Unfortunately, his live-in girlfriend, Amber, asks for it most disrespectfully. Now, Bishop is in the streets shuffling angrily through women when he meets Winter Storm. Winter is fighting her own demons, as she struggles to win custody of her son. All she wants to do is use Bishop randomly for an escape from her stressful reality. Yet, Bishop's love for hood chicks only draws him to Winter, despite her constant warning

🤬

I would have to say the story line was good really good BUT I am so disappointed in the male narrator Benjamin Charles I mean how unprofessional can you be ??? the beginning chapters he did really good I liked him better than the female narrator but the last few chapters when it was really getting good you could clearly hear him sucking on throat lozenges and it made me CRINGE like seriously?? I know it's a long book and you will need throat lozenges but we should never hear that and the female narrator male voices were horrible like they were in Chicago not down south 🙄

I couldn’t take the male narrator

The story was good and I loved it how ever the male narrator drove me nuts with the pause swallowing and drinking while reading his part. At 1st it was bad but by the end of the book I wanted to cuss him out he annoyed me to no end!!!!!! I hope there a book 2 and pls DO NOT Use Ben Charles…..

Awful narrators

This book was so hard to finish because both narrators were awful. What was meant to be voice changes of characters sounded a mess and each one trying to do the voice of the opposite sex didn't work out. close to the end I had to speed up the voice pace because Benjamin kept stopping and taking mini pauses whole you could hear him shuffling in the background. I love Jessica Watkins but any book he or Lacy Laurel narrate I cant do.

Please get new narrators

I loved this book… Jessica N. Watkins NEVER disappoints me. However, the male narrator made me cringe so much at the end. Like homeboy PLEASE spit that cough drop out. I just wanted to rip my ears off and buy the actual book to finish reading it myself. The only reason why I didn’t was because it was way too good to wait for the hard copy to come in.

Oh God... We Thank You!

I'm so glad not to hear Miranda Jay voice on a Jessica Watkins' book! Her voice is not believable to the characters she portrays. Her sound is too 'mainstream' for narration.

Now Ms Lacy Laurel - YAAAASSSSS! Come through Sis.... I feel like she may pull a few tracks out of some girl's good bundles....

Benjamin Charles was okay until he narrated for Angel. You could hear the pages turning as he read. Took me out of the story a bit.

Jessica, your storytelling skills are wonderful and it breaks up the monotony of my day when driving, cleaning and exercising. Let's see about moving you out of my imagination onto the small/big screens. I want to see who will be Epic, Angel and Bishop.

If you need assistance in picking, I'm your girl!

Great Book Wrong Female Reader

I absolutely LOVED the story as I ALWAYS do with Ms. Watkins, but the femal reader was ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE. Her voice made me not want to listen any further! I was completely irritated hearing her.
If I am listening to a reading about a female who lives in the hood, her voice should match that and not a news weather girl. It was just not a good reader for the female characters.

Great Storyline

I didn’t like the ending at all. Seems like she ran out of ideas as far as the end
