This is a fast pace, kept on track, no loose ends in your face raw story. Keisha is smart but born into a situation, and she has a goal,but has to find a quick way to achieve that goal. She makes some decisions, not always the best decisions, but she always tries to stay in control. Unfortunately for her all her decisions, don't turn out the way she planned them, and when she hooks up with Steven, through Sean is when things get down right ugly and dirty. If you can't take profanity, explicit sex, then you can't handle this story...because it so hot that you will need oven mits to read it!!!!!!!!! Keisha and Patra show us along with the other characters in the story, why some make the choices they do. All strippers are not hoes and all hoes are stupid. Some women along with men enjoy the line of work that they choose. Sometimes it is all about the money and other times it isn't. Keisha shows us that she is doing her thing to further herself in life and not have to always be in the game. Steven a sleazy businessman shows us that in the game you don't want to mess with the wrong one, but then the tables get flipped when Donovan steps back in the picture. See you never know who someone has in their corner to watch their back. Fast paced, in your face, straight to the point and leaves no loose ends story. If you can handle the heat, then enter the kitchen otherwise you may get burned. This is an adult story (If the sex wasn't so intense..this would be a great story for young girls to read also, but do to the nature of the business, I don't recommend it to teens). Good job in my book Lawrence Ross!!

I liked this book and found the story to be refreshing in how Keisha refused to let herself be pushed around by a man who tries to take advantage of her. The ending of this book is empowering, but I found two issues with this book that cost it a couple of stars.

1. Keisha doesn't use a fake name for her stripping or porn. For a girl who is supposed to be so intelligent, this was a pretty dumb move.

2. She is offered five thousand dollars for doing a porn movie. She is told she needs to do several things through the movie, and she initially agrees. However, later she backs out, having only done half the things she was asked to. So when she is paid only 2500 dollars instead of 5000, she gets mad. Even though she only did, y'know, half of the work she was supposed to do, she expected to be paid the full sum. Haha, no, again Keisha is supposed to be so smart, yet she can't figure this out?

Keisha Montez has her share of problems but her determination is her best quality. This book was a bit predictable no big ah-ha moments for me.

Keisha is young girl working in a strip club to pay her tuition at UCLA. Throw in her ratchet mother & unmotivated brother to weave a tale of almost doesn't count.
Soon as things start looking up for Keisha she stumbles upon another bump in the road. But a determined Keisha never gives up. Finally, her life is on track but a desperate decision to make some change comes back to bite her in the rear.
Miss. Montez has to make a thought decision to lay down or fight for her name. I am happy to say she made the right decision.

In the end all things work together for the good. Moral of the story ~~> Never give up<~

Skin Game by Lawrence Ross is a fast-paced look at what a young girl will do when she feels she has no choices. Keisha Montez is a smart, beautiful girl of eighteen who is working weeknights as a stripper at the Chi Chi Club. She has been accepted at UCLA and is determined to attend, majoring in Women's Studies. Her mother, Veronica, has refused to fill out financial aid forms so Keisha is convinced the only way to earn money is by stripping. She does not like her environment and likes Sean her boss even less but she is bound and determined to get what she needs.

While dancing she is discovered by Steven Cox, a former attorney and the owner of PIMP magazine. Steven is determined to grow from magazine owner to producer of pornographic movies. Once he meets the beautiful Keisha, he knows she is the one to get him where he wants to go. What he does not know is Keisha is not the run-of-the-mill stripper turned porn star and she is not one to be pushed around. Skin Game is a roller coaster ride that takes the reader from what is to what can be and shows how one young girl handles herself when she is determined.

Skin Game is a recommended read for all readers who love a timely, well-told story of someone who makes bad decisions when young, yet works to rise above them.
