Publisher's Summary

Hip-hop artist Tip "T.I." Harris has received every acclaim the music world has to offer. Now, working with bestselling celebrity collaborator David Ritz, T.I. applies all his talent and experience to the world of fiction by creating the epic love story of Power and Beauty.
After the death of his mother, Charlotte, Paul “Power” Clay allows himself to be guided by Slim, a local businessman. Slim always has the best of everything, and Power is sure that if he learns Slim's ways, he'll make something of himself - and perhaps be worthy of Tanya “Beauty” Long. From Chicago to Miami to New York, through drugs, women, and violence, Power makes the difficult transition from boy to man and, in doing so, begins to question if those who have taught him - including Slim - truly have his best interests at heart.
Beauty has always known that the only person she can rely on is herself. After her mother died when she was eleven years old, she was adopted by close family friend Charlotte Clay. But with Charlotte's death, Beauty knows she's no longer safe and protected - especially as Power gets sucked into a new kind of life. As soon as she can, she turns her back on Atlanta - and the growing love she feels for Power--for a chance to make it in the Big Apple. With a successful fashion career on the horizon, Beauty takes New York by storm with her wit, business savvy, and breathtaking good looks. But she's never forgotten those she left behind. And when it becomes clear that Power needs her, Beauty will risk everything to save the man she loves.

Awful read!

I love T.I. but this book was horrible! The story spent so much time detailing the lives and history of the people the main characters (Power & Beauty) were suppose to be "learning" from, the story line between the two main characters was never developed. I suffered through the entire story to be even more disappointed with the ending. Do not waste your time or money!!!

Suprised by T.I.'s story telling skills

I never thought T.I. had it in him I am amazed. I enjoyed listening to this book and hoping that there will be another book which im sure they are working on. The story started off grabbing the readers attention and throughout the book the charcaters roles as they got older was well defined. The thing I like best about the book is how you got to know each character and why they played a role in POWER and BEAUTY's life. There is a big difference between males and females and I realized in this book that most of the time women have a better sense of character then men, and it was evident in this book that Beauty's vibe regarding SLIM was correct. I was shocked that this book had me so entranced and wanting to hear more. The narrator did an amazing job on his performance.
