Misty and Brick, the lusty and scheming duo last seen in Double Dippin', are back in Hobbs' eleventh novel. The partners both had a thing for the handsome but now deceased Shane and are trying to make it again in the gangsta culture of Philadelphia. Misty introduces Brick to online porn and escorting to pay for their high-flying lifestyle. But Misty's mother, Thomasina-a straight-arrow with a job who's always disapproved of Misty and Brick's choices-holds some sway because her good credit has often gotten the pair out of trouble. Out pursuing attractive and gullible men and women to add to her escort stable, Misty happens upon Dane, the spitting image of Shane, and she struggles to keep her head while falling madly in love with this new man in town. The once-loyal Brick soon realizes that Misty is more concerned with her own needs than those of their tenuous partnership. On the raunchier end of the mainstream romance genre, Hobbs's 'hood romp is chock-full of graphic sex, but these scenes, and the profanity-ridden interludes in between, can't overcome the predictable plot.
