Book Description

Phil-Good Trenton is caring, charismatic, and passionate. Traits that get buried underneath his kill or be killed mentality in an attempt to pay rent.

Jermaine Lloyd is a casino operator at an illegal after hours joint. He lives an ideal life of a bachelor but will his gambling addiction threaten to take that all away?

Blue Ball has always cared for himself and his younger brother. But bailing his brother out of trouble one time too many may prove fatal.

Short Stack was a hustler all his life, always about the dollar but will he change his attitude for the love of a woman?

When the lives of these four men with different circumstances and agendas collide, they set the streets of Chicago on fire! In this gritty and compelling drama of crime, compassion, and consequence, will they become victims of their own desires? Or will they conquer their differences and find Crew Love?

2.0 out of 5 stars Crew love April 22, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure where too begin. The story line was good however my issues were with the amount of characters...too many. It was hard for me to keep up with who was who throughout the first half of the book. I had to keep going back to remind myself who it was the author was referring to. The other issue was editing...I don't know if it was the kindle edition that only had this problem but in both arts if the series there were serious editing issues. With that being said the overall story was ok.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crew Love offers visual stimulation. May 3, 2010
Format:Paperback
I didn't know what to expect when I began reading Crew Love, because I was a little leary about reading street literature. However, author Antwan Floyd dispelled my hesitation. Crew Love has very engaging characters, with a realistic storyline that is full of content. Mr. Floyd did a great job of portraying life from the streets. Crew Love is well-written and a good read!

4.0 out of 5 stars From the heart September 9, 2010
Format:Paperback
Crew Love by Antwan Floyd is a slice of ethnic crime fiction in the tradition of Walter Mosley, Chester himes and Donald Goines. Antwan has good instincts. I see raw talent between the pages of Crew Love. Some of his phrasing simply sparkles. Like these: He stood in the doorway looking like a man who got away with murder (or) First they give you a loan, and everything is sweeter than a Mississippi sissy eating sugar cane. His timing is good, the vernacular spot on, which gives the story its urban mood, but his rejection of the formal approach contributes to a lack of unity and slips in character development. Crew Love is narrated in the first person by several characters, and there are several violations of the first person conventions. In one section narrated by Bethel she's in a scene with a character named Smoke and there are flowers in the room. Bethel narrates to the reader that the flowers remind Smoke of back down South. Well, there is no way that Bethel could know what the flowers remind Smoke of if you are sticking to the rules of first person narrative. Antwan switches from first person to third in certain parts of the narrative, and that can be as jolting as hitting a pothole in an otherwise smooth road. Linguistic innovations can be a two edged sword. Antwan leaves little to the imagination of his readers. He describes his characters in full, height, weight, complexion etc. That got a little tiring for me. He should have left some of this to the imagination of the reader. In spite of the flaws in this gem, I highly recommend Crew Love, and look forward to reading more of Antwan Floyd's work. Antwan has what it takes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Could Not Put It Down Even If I Wanted To!!!! April 22, 2010
Format:Paperback
Crew Love by Antwan Floyd is an amazing read to say the least. The book reads like a movie that places you in each scene to scene. The historical theme and reality of "Crew Love" compels you to make sure you keep track of this amazing author. I wait for the day this book is conveyed on screen. I have that much belief behind the power and talent of this author. I take my hat off to you for this one sir. Keep becoming the greatest!!!!!
