The collection starts with “Georgie Ann” a tale of kept women, betrayal, fake friends, and oh, so much blood. “Take the Hit” brings us the mighty Kendra, who must return to the ring if she hopes to fulfill her dream of having a family. In “Sunrise,” Nikki brings us to the desert to die, although not before unwinding the lost loves, regrets, and complicated relationships plaguing one black family, as two cousins decide to kill their uncle. Regret is the order of business in “Our Man Julian,” where a washed-up black actor from a bygone era cultivates an outrageous kamikaze mission to gain his neglected daughters their chance at what he never had: an inheritance.
Love and Other Criminal Behavior will keep your black heart pumping fast, right up until it’s broken.
