Amber Jones A.K.A Lil Bit was born with the odds totally against her. “A Hard Knock Life” is the best way to describe her childhood years. The verbal, physical and sexual abuse that she endured as a child built a cold brick wall around her tender heart. The death of her mother at an early age leaves her with no guidance in life and she’s forced to navigate through the best way that she knows how. Her life brightens up in her teen-age years when she meets her Prince Charming, Maurice, who steps in and relieves her of all of her misery. Maurice is a cold-hearted Kingpin and leader of the drug organization known in the streets of Newark as The Federation. A strong and powerful leader he is. She learns a great deal from him. He teaches her the code of the streets, the meaning of loyalty, honor, morals and principles. Most importantly he teaches her the true meaning of love. His jealous and controlling demeanor has always been an issue but she somehow managed to live with it because of her love for him. Loving him, as easy as it may be, it’s not at her best interest to do so due to the fact that he’s a married man. For years she’s played number two to his wife but as the years creep by she descends further and further down the list of his multiple women. Finally just as she’s becoming tired of being just another one of his prizes a man that she feels truly loves her enters her life. She’s stuck at the crossroads not knowing whether to continue her and Maurice’s complicated love affair or to cut off their intimate ties and only retain their business affairs. The only problem with that is as much as Maurice has emphasized never mixing business with pleasure when it comes to her he has a problem practicing what he preaches. What’s a girl to do? She finds herself trapped in between unconditional love and the love of money. To make a decision in the name of love could not only affect her luxurious lifestyle, it could also jeopardize her life and the life of her true love.

Amber Jones is a young woman that has lived a very terrible childhood from her stepfather raping, her mom dying, and her big sister dying everything is against her. Maurice a kingpin of Newark's Federation Crew gets her off the street and into her own apartment all while teaching her the ins and out of the game. Maurice will do anything for Lil'Bit and her baby sister Star, but she betrays him by having a fling with a "Peasant" drug dealer Samad who's way beneath her, but she falls head over heels for this guy.

Maurice has groomed Lil'Bit to be the most street wise, business savy memember in his click, but she wants to be with Samad and coach him through the game so that they may live happily ever after.Samad is trying to follow Lil'Bit's teachings, but he is too naive. Once Maurice finds out that he's been betrayed by his top Solider all hell will break loose.

This is my first book by Al Saadiq Banks and I can guarantee it won't be my last. This book read like a movie, because you can visualize everything even the sounds of the gun shots were so vivid it was truly amazing. The characters were very developed along with the plot and I just have to say great job Mr.Banks!

As always, Mr. BANKS delivers another street classic! His writing style his unparalleled in this genre or any other. The story reads more like a movie than a book with characters that pop off the page. I loved this book because it had all the elements of real life: love, money, Sex, betrayal. The ending will bring tears to your eyes then make you smile again. Awesome read!

Al Saadiq Banks goes from strength to strength and in Strapped he delivers one of his best works to date, this story has it all sex, money and murder and after reading this novel you will feel as if you have been on a crazy ride in the Newark underbelly right along with the main characters. I won't spoil the plot but believe me the story is crazy and will have you shouting out loud at characters when they make bad decisions and smiling to yourself when they are winning, a true five star ride from one of the best on the scene.

I loved this book and couldnt put it down. One of the best I've read in awhile. It grips and sucks you in from the beginning and I was hooked. It was alittle different from his other books dealing with streetlife usually from a man's perspective, this time coming from the views of a female but again you wont be dissapointed!! This man has some serious talent. Love him!
