Antonio Roberts and Paige Tillary are from vastly different backgrounds, so when they meet and fall in love, it won´t be easy. Antonio, born of an affair between a beautiful actress and a notorious crime boss, lost his mother to drugs and was forced to navigate foster care and survive on the streets of the Bronx. He is ignored by his father, the infamous head of a powerful crime syndicate, and his half-brothers are living the life Antonio used to dream about. Antonio has turned his struggles into a career in the NBA, but when a devastating injury sidelines his basketball career and he finds out he has been duped out of millions by his best friend, Antonio is forced to turn to the father who never claimed him. Paige came from money. Private schools, trips around the world, and extravagant shopping sprees were all part of her upbringing. Her father is a well-respected politician who is not happy when his daughter falls in love with a man who represents everything the senator despises. But Paige´s father harbors many secrets of his own, including one that will soon rock his family to the core. In spite of their own marital issues, Paige´s parents try to exert pressure on her to leave Antonio. She lets love guide her, and despite her parents´ threats to disinherit her, she marries Antonio anyway. When secrets, lies, and ties to a dangerous criminal underworld cause their opposing worlds to collide, the young couple is torn between their love for one another and their competing family loyalties. Family secrets, power, money, fame, and love are the ties that bind in this emotionally charged street tale.

Meet Geena Samuels, a single mother raising two sons in one of New York City´s toughest boroughs. This Bronx story is nothing like you´ve ever witnessed before. Geena encounters violence and betrayal from those who claim to love her most. She is on a roller coaster ride of a struggle to make ends meet and find true love, with emotions raging between love and an anger that sometimes leads to war. One such war is the battle between her and her best friend, Abby, who has her hoodwinked while they are in search of the fast-money lifestyle. Abby is wild, reckless, and jealous of Geena. Unbeknownst to Geena, Abby is committed to destroying her, the one true person who trusts her. During it all, the one saving grace seems to be Geena´s sponsor, who helps with the bills and Geena´s expensive shopping habits. However, his real intentions are covered by the financial security he provides. Will Geena survive the game, or the web of deceit her best friend Abby or sponsor have woven, or will naivety and greediness be the cause of her demise? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jessica Lee J.

Dion came up out of the Bronx in the 60s and tore through the music charts in a ferocious display of talent. He continued to make great music while slowly returning to his Catholic roots. Dion´s hard-won wisdom filters through his stories whether he´s recalling how he went shopping with John Lennon and ended up on the cover of ´´Sgt. Pepper´s Lonely Hearts Club Band´´ or what it was like to travel in the Jim Crow South with Sam Cooke. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frank Montenegro.

While Laura Ingraham was walking through a Northern Virginia shopping mall one Saturday afternoon, it all became clear to her. Everywhere she turned, she saw signs of the impending disaster: zombie teens texting each other across a café table; a man having his eyebrows threaded at a kiosk; a 50ish woman shoe-horned into a tube top and skinny jeans; and a storefront ad featuring a Victoria´s Secret model spilling out of her push-up bra and into the faces of young passersby. Ingraham wondered to herself, ´´Is this it? Is this what our forefathers fought for? What my parents struggled for? I wonder if Victoria´s Secret is still having that two-for-one sale?´´ A menacing force surrounds us. We see it, we feel it, we know it. The country we love is in grave peril. While politicians and ´´experts´´ prattle on about the debt crisis at home, and terrorism abroad, a more insidious homegrown threat is emerging. It endangers our future and undermines our present. The uncomfortable truth: We have become our own worst enemy. The culture we have created is now turning on us. We´re on the verge of drowning in our ignorance, arrogance, gluttony… can you believe there are only three shots of vanilla in a Caramel Macchiato?!? Now, in an act of patriotic intervention, the most-listened-to woman in talk radio casts her satirical eye upon all that ails American society. In this sharp-witted, comic romp, Laura Ingraham takes you on a guided tour through 10 levels of our cultural hell. You know we´re in trouble when: Airplane seats shrink - just as the passengers expand. Celebrity baby names go from the peculiar (Apple, Stetson, and Daisy Boo) to the pathetic (Bamboo, Blanket, and Bronx). People meticulously tend their virtual crops on Farmville, while their children eat takeout. ´´Breaking News´´ usually means it happened yesterday. The weddings last longer than the marriages. Faceb... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Laura Ingraham, Raymond Arroyo. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/sans/005589/bk_sans_005589_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
