WILD CHERRY (Sin City Series Book 1)
Aliyah Murphy, author
Cherish "Cherry" Turner was born to a teenage mother whose association with a drug kingpin got her sentenced to a decade in federal prison. Left in the care of her abusive alcoholic grandmother, Cherry plays the bad hand she was dealt and learns to survive on the grimy streets of Las Vegas, where predators wait at every turn to take advantage of young women struggling to find their place in the world and broken family. Lorenzo comes into Cherry's life at a time when she is desperate for love and he sweeps her into a fast-paced lifestyle similar to the same destructive path her mother went down in her own relationship. Cherry hits rock bottom and tries to turn her life around, but learns that redemption doesn't come easy; and that mistakes made along the way jeopardize her future, and just might cause her dreams of a better life to come crashing down in mid-flight.
