Jamika is a beauty, but can't seem to find a guy that sees her potential. All the guys want to get together with her, but she isn't considered wife material. As a young girl, she witnesses a brutal crime, causing her to view life through dark lenses. Growing up in the grimy hoods of South Florida, troubles are often hidden. Jamika tries many times at taking a chance on having a relationship with guys who seem to be good for her, but she keeps getting burned. Along with that, her family's secrets add to her unwillingness to trust any man she attempts to love. Her only happiness is the sultry singing voice she possesses. It provides an escape from reality and will hopefully give her a ticket out of the hood. Life has definitely given Jamika plenty of lemons, but will she be able to turn the darkness and sourness into lemonade?

T. J. Hope's Hood Lemonade: Jamika's Vendetta is a gripping story full of sex, betrayal, revenge, and even death. From the first page, Hope's writing will pull you into this story of Jamika’s quest for happiness. Jamika's journey will take you on an emotional roller coaster as you experience all of the ups, downs, mistreatment, and disservice that she received in her life. Jamika doesn't let her circumstances keep her down, she keeps moving and striving to find happiness. T. J. Hope has never ceased to amaze me with her compelling and vivid writing skills. A phenomenal read. Great story! I loved it. I can't wait to read the next one.
