Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Ashley Antoinette, author of the Prada Plan series, comes a boldly fierce and strikingly dramatic novel, Luxe.
Bleu Montclair knew as a young girl that she would one day escape the hard, unrelenting streets of Flint, Michigan. When her desperate prayers are answered in the form of a scholarship to UCLA, she knows she's struck gold. But soon after arriving, all her beautiful, bright dreams begin to fall apart. Endless temptations abound in the form of cars, clothes, booze, and drugs, and Bleu cannot keep up. When her roommate gives her the opportunity to make a lot of money fast, Bleu goes all in - and heads straight down a path of violence and addiction that only her newest protector, Iman, can save her from.
Iman is used to the fast, unpredictable, high-rolling life, and it has always been enough until he meets Bleu. He finally has someone to care for who means more to him than all the money and power he could command. But love on the streets is never easy.

omg!!! the writer had any input on the narrator?

overall this book was pretty good I'm not sure if the author has any say-so over who narrates their books but I have read other books by the author and each time I have returned her books because of the narrator if you're writing a story and the characters in the book are in their early twenties the person that is reading the books should sound like that the person reading the book shouldn't have to take breaks to breathe in between sentences! what the hell! refund...

I hated to do it but....this story sucks.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Nobody...


What was most disappointing about Ashley Antoinette’s story?

Not sure if it's the story or the narrator bc she is dry.


How could the performance have been better?

Never use this narrator again... i loved the old narrators. They must've of moved on to bigger and better things.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Luxe?

I can't finish


Any additional comments?

I know it's important to not stay the same and grow with your audience, but I believe there should be some balance. I don't think Ashley nailed it this time... I will remain a loyal reader for a long time to come.
