Ride or Die Chick – J.M. Benjamin

Treacherous Freeman lost his mother at an early age and watched his dad go to prison. Treacherous quickly turned to a life of crime as a way to survive the streets. After witnessing her mom get killed by her dad, Teflon Jackson was forced to grow up fast in the mean streets of Virginia. After meeting in a Juvenile Detention Center, and sharing their stories with each other the two of them became inseparable.  In an effort to survive they turn to what they know best … wreaking havoc.
Will Treacherous & Teflon take crime sprees too far? Will they be able to turn their lives around before it’s too late? Would their love be able to survive it all?

I have heard the term Ride or Die used numerous times in my life, but I wonder do people really understand the responsibilities that come with the term “Ride or Die”.  In my opinion, Ride or Die is having someone’s back no matter what the situation calls for. Treacherous & Teflon love for each other sums up the definition of “Ride or Die”.
I was very surprised that I haven’t read a JM Benjamin book before this selection.  I guess I felt familiar with JM Benjamin because of his statuses on my Facebook Timeline. I often refer to him as, “THE AUTHOR THAT NEVER SLEEPS…” After watching promos for Ride or Die Chick 3, I was bitten by the curiosity bug and decided to buy Ride or Die Chick 1 & 2. After reading this selection in less than 24 hours, I was upset with myself for not reading it sooner.
I love the fact that JM Benjamin is able to tell a complete story without being too wordy. This is a gritty tale mixed with a love story that is very believable. This author does an excellent job giving his readers the complete back story of each character.  I love reading a book with SOLID writing.  Even if you don’t agree with what the characters are doing, this author writes in such a way that makes you care about each character and their story.  I can’t wait to read Ride or Die Chick 2 & 3
Ride or Die Chick 3 will be released November 26th, so if you haven’t read 1 & 2 – click on the links below and be prepared to be BLOWN AWAY…
5 Stars
