UP THE LADDER by Kareem Rahman

Damiko was home, fresh off of doing a 12-year stretch in the penitentiary. Things had changed drastically. Everyone from the old days were gone.

ESCAPE FROM NECROPOLIS by Kareem Rahman
The Necropolis was a direct product of what had inevitably been coming to Earth since the day someone figured out how to make Nuclear Weapons. I’m almost certain that whoever that person was, probably thought that creating such a weapon was a pretty good idea. They probably thought that creating such a weapon would ensure one Country’s survival in this unstable world. Really, what type of crazy person would attack a Country, knowing that, said Country had the power to turn entire portions of the Earth into a flaming ball of shit? Once one Country obtained the ability to create Nuclear Weapons, every Country realized that it was a necessity that they owned at least one too. Owning Nuclear Weapons quickly became the only way to protect one’s self, and guarantee the survival of a nation. For years and years, Nuclear Weapons were just that. Tools that ensured a nation would survive. Nuclear Weapons were mostly used for surviving and threatening. Every Country had nuclear capabilities, but no Country had ever really seriously considered using them. Who would ever be that stupid? You launch at them, they launch back at us. In the end, nobody wins. Surely, there was no president anywhere on Earth who was stupid enough to launch a nuclear attack against another Country, was there? An inept United States Congress, that enabled a madman and allowed him to take control of America, and his equally mad dictatorial counterpart in North Korea managed to get into a dispute that led to the unimaginable becoming a very real reality…………….

THE BOUJEE CIRCLE by Kareem Rahman
Before I tell you the story of The Boujee Circle, let me take a moment to tell you about The Boujee Circle. The Boujee Circle is a series of books about four friend/enemies. Let’s call them “frenemies”. Ashley, Dina, Brittney, and Miranda. Four women, with four very different personalities. The one thing these women have in common is money. All four of the ladies do very well financially. Some ladies get their money in different ways than others, but the money, or the perception of having money, is the glue that holds the group together. You know that saying, “birds of a feather flock together?” Yeah that.
STRAIGHT SCANDALOUS by Kareem Rahman
Sex sells….Tawanna learned this early on on life and had been applying this knowledge to every aspect of her life ever since. Tawanna had no problem at all with using what she had, to get what she wanted. Tawanna’s daughter Alie, who was only 15 years younger than her mother, was the complete opposite. Alie wanted nothing from anyone. She believed that hard work was the thing that took a person to the top. At 24-years old, Alie was an up and coming R&B singer whose career had risen earlier, but was now stuck at a standstill. Tawanna had played a big part in getting Alie’s career to where it was at today, by having sex with with every person remotely connected to the music industry that she could find, but even that had failed to take Alie’s career to that next level. All of that changed when Alie met a local superstar in the R&B world named Kendale. Meeting Kendale turned out to be a blessing and a curse at the same time. Alie’s career was sure to skyrocket after meeting him, but her relationship with her mother was threatened to become broken beyond repair….forever!
Everybody wants something, and everything has a price. This is the ultimate story of “everything not being what it looks like, when you’re on the outside looking in.” In a world that’s fueled by greed, treachery, lust, and deceit, people tend to become STRAIGHT SCANDALOUS!
TOMMY TUCKER THE NEIGHBORHOOD SUCKER by Kareem Rahman
Nothing in the world motivates a person like the want….or need of money. Especially when you’ve grown accustomed to living a certain lifestyle. There is almost nothing you wouldn’t do to continue living that lifestyle. And almost no one you wouldn’t walk over to continue living that lifestyle!
Meet Pebbles. Your average female going through life and taking the steps to try to ensure a better future for herself. That changes when she meets, and falls in love with her college sweetheart, Alvin. She found in Alvin, what she thought life was supposed to be about….love and happiness. Pebbles’ college studies quickly take a back seat to Alvin, “the love of her life.” Alvin is a gentleman in every sense of the word. He’s kind, caring, and attentive to her every want and need. At least he started out that way. It didn’t take long before Pebbles discovered that Alvin was the devil in disguise. He really wasn’t such a gentleman. Alvin was a frequently drunken, equally as frequent abusive, insecure monster, who began publicly beating Pebbles on a regular basis. During one of her public beatings, Pebbles was saved from Alvin’s wrath by a “knight in shining armor” by the name of Jahlil. Pebbles was impressed by Jahlil in every way imaginable from the very beginning. Now this, was a real man! Jahlil was everything that Alvin wasn’t. Mature, not insecure, and most importantly, a willing provider. Well…..as it turned out, Jahlil wasn’t quite what Pebbles thought that he was either. Jahlil had some skeletons hidden deep down inside of his closet. Unlike the last time with Alvin, Pebbles refuses to accept disrespect again! …….Truthfully, just between you and me, Pebbles really just refused to give up the lifestyle that being with Jahlil provided her. Either way, Pebbles is now out for revenge. And we all know that there is nothing more dangerous on the face of this earth than a woman who feels as if she has been scorned!
