The Coldest Love She’s Ever Known is gritty, new urban fiction from Leo Sullivan.
Sunday Kennedy lives in the urban jungle of Atlanta, GA. Living in a jungle she is confronted with the bane of all jungle dwellers, deadly predators. It just happens that she loves two of these predators, but they hate each other.
Malik “King” Shields is Sunday’s first love, but she gives up on a relationship with him when he’s convicted of murder and sentenced to the death penalty. King is a notorious former gang leader and drug lord.
Caesar Jones is Sunday’s new love and a drug-dealing street hustler on the rise. He’s also the father of her unborn child.
One loves her unconditionally. The other loves the prestige she brings. Will Sunday choose true love or the idea of a family?
Dangerous plots abound from enemies known and unknown. Will any of them survive the destruction of jealousy, betrayal and revenge?
The Coldest Love She’s Ever Known is a perfect example of urban fiction at it’s finest. The story is revealed through the alternating viewpoints of main characters, Sunday and King. Appropriate chapter headers and clear dialogue make this sometimes tricky technique flow smoothly. The characters are all well-rounded and compelling, even the ones you hate. The plot twists and ending are jaw-dropping. There is graphic violence and explicit content, but this novel is unputdownable. I rate it 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it to all readers of multicultural and/or urban fiction or good fiction in general.
My thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
