Summary

Love, betrayal, and loyalty on the streets of Harlem.

Daruis, aka Rio, the only child of a singer turned alcoholic, feels he has nothing to hold on to except the idea of escaping the ghetto. Years ago he took a gun charge for a friend and did some prison time. Unable to find a job when he gets out, Rio turns to hustling and finds escape in the arms of his soul mate, Trinity.

When Trinity's mother dies, her abusive father looks to her to play the role of housewife and bedmate. Trinity finds strength to endure in Rio's arms, and together they vow to do whatever it takes to make it out of the ghetto. But soon they find their backs against the wall when the streets come to claim their due.

Street Dreams

SPOILERS <<<
The truck is a B, lol! When he saw The Hound, he said: "You know what?" I hope his little snitch *** get murked. And I am glad he got what he deserved too. Because he set Cutty up and end up in the cell with Cutty, ha, KARMA's is a mother I tell you. Plus the only real dudes was in this book to me was Cutty, Mel, Rio, Prince, Jay, and the kid that Mel hung out with that left. It was sad that they all died in the end except Cutty, but still, Rio went out like the G that he was. Plus, it's crazy how people underestimated Rio, but what brought his demon Side out was the situations that has to happen to Trinity or if someone says something about her. He truly love that girl, I felt he should've killed himself, I mean love will do that to a person. I am just glad everyone found out who Truck really was. Also, I want a book about The Hound and Kane. I love them lol they are awesome.

All in!

I love anything that K’WAN writes! And Cary Hyte could read me the ABC’s and I would be mesmerized! Street Dreams had me on the end of my seat from beginning to end. I wish there could’ve been a “happy ending” for Rio and Trinity but, besides that I loved everything.

Super Urban Novel

Great read with interesting characters that you root for or hate with every chapter. The narrator Corey Hite is excellent.

Not the best and not the worst

I LOVE me some Cary Hite and Kwan....this story just didn't do it for me. A drug dealer with no car or crib on his own? Someone got beef, and you gotta run, catch a cab, bus or train to get there? 🤣 dis was tew much.

Let me tell you something abt Kwan

Kwan always comes with BALANCE. He balances out a hood romance, hood dreams, and thug life all in one. That’s why females can tune in because it’s not only abt violence but some form of love. His books are relatable and there are some truths.

Cary Hite always does the damn thing. He is amazing and one of the top narrators out. Both men killed this stand alone!

A 50%/50% Split!

A story that's 50% Hood tales and 50% love story. I listened to the first 18 chapters, before I had to make my wife listen to her first audio book! She's loving it, and is 17 mins from being done herself! I would recommend it as a beginner audio book for someone who likes the genre's first listen, for certain! Great story, and fully flushed out. It will not leave you wondering.
