Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
All the Nay Sayers who believe that urban lit has nothing to offer the literary world need only to pick up this book to find out why urban lit is here to stay. All those who are convinced that only stereotypical images of sex and violence is all that's to be found inside of an urban book needs to be introduced to author Leo Sullivan and immersed in the masterful tale he penned with his debut novel Life.

Life is no ordinary urban tale even though it contains all the necessary elements. A thugged out main character (Life Thugstin), a brainy heroine (Hope Evans), a murderous drug lieutenant (Blazack), a dirty cop (Spitler) and a crew of dangerous females (Trina, Evette & Tomica) whom readers will be kept guessing as to with whom their loyalties lie. One of the many reasons that Life resonates above the rest of urban lit is the character development. Every character contained in the novel even minor characters like strung out Nina Brown get blessed with Mr. Sullivan's descriptive flair of storytelling.

A flair so great that Mr. Sullivan easily brings to life the fear of a hustler trying to survive a game where there are no winners, or the desperation of a woman determined to pull her man out of a game that she introduces him to and the desperation of yet another woman frantically trying to save all black men in the court room from the injustice of a corrupt legal system. Including a drug kingpin who's facing a life sentence. A man whose child she bore years ago without his knowledge.

Leo Sullivan delivers a clear message to the doubters of urban lit but better than that his book Life delivers to fans of the genre a new urban masterpiece!!!!!! Congratulations Mr. Sullivan excellent work!!

Format: Paperback
Not too long released from prison, Life Thugstin finds himself in trouble once again. While leading the police on a high speed chase, Life runs into Hope Evans and this chance meeting changes their lives forever.

Hope is a college student studying law, with big plans of one day becoming a successful lawyer. She hopes to expose the corruption in the justice system against black men. Hope knows she is wrong for helping Life escape, but she just can't say no. There's no denying the chemistry between the two, but with two totally different lifestyles, Hope realizes there is no future in loving a "thug". However, they share one night of electrifying passion and go their separate ways. Neither of them knew that they would be reunited years later.

Life meets Trina, and his dreams of becoming a drug lord are fulfilled. Trina and Life have the perfect plan, they are to get in and get out within a year. One year turned into a couple of years, leading to a spiraling path of destruction. Throughout their changing lifestyles, things got deeper between the two, more people were added to their world, but even more were being killed. Life keeps hearing Hope's warning to him about being killed or ending up in prison, but he ignores it and continues his role as a drug king. Things are too good and Life's not ready to leave the game...

...Life is now fighting to stay out of prison, he learns that Hope is on the prosecuting team and Hope knows Life will never get a fair trial, she decides to help Life stay out of prison by quitting her job. It is later that Life realizes the power of love. But Hope has other motives for keeping Life out of prison, and she fights with all of her might, to the point of neglecting her own health.
