It’s been a while since I picked up a street lit book. I haven’t been keeping up with Ashley’s books, but I saw it at the library and knew my sparkly little fingers needed to get it. I’ve read almost all of Ashley’s books and she never disappoints and Luxe is no different.
Bleu Montclair was top notch in school. Her greatest dream was leaving her dismal life in Flint, Michigan and of course going to her dream school UCLA. So when she gets that scholarship she always wanted, she knew that that was her ticket out of her hellhole that she called home. Once she gets there, everything starts falling apart. She ends up meeting all the wrong people and her life becomes a downward spiral of unfortunate events. As I learned more and more from Bleu you can’t help but feel bad for her, I mean this poor girl went through so much crap as a little girl, and then as an adult it even gets worse, But you have to admire the fact that she had a hell of a friend in Noah. He supported that girl through all the hard times as a kid. And then Bleu meets another man who sweeps her off her feet and does anything and everything to make her happy and help her. Is it real love or just a game? This book is just action packed from the first page. I highly recommend it.
