Description

“It’s the glint off a knife’s edge. The bullet raked into the gun’s chamber. Knuckles cracking just before the first fist is thrown. It’s hot blood steaming off cold NYC concrete. It’s K’wan’s world, baby. Furious action and bruising insights delivered at midnight. This is writing that draws blood and heals souls.” Stephen Mack Jones, author of the August Snow series

In this stunning sequel to Promise Broken, K’wan spins a pulse-pounding story about surviving, thriving, and the consequences of love.

Promise and her best friend Mouse have fled Newark and are hiding out in New York City, wanted by the police—and the streets—for the death of B-Stone, leader of the Bloods. In the city, Promise has found work as a waitress at a hole-in-the-wall strip club. But one fateful night, she is forced to face her past when an up-and-coming rapper draws several shady characters into her orbit.

Meanwhile, Asher has maneuvered himself into a position of great importance after B-Stone’s death, albeit with some help. But his ambition may cost him when he must make the ultimate choice: his best friend’s life, or his own.

Promise and Asher have each come into their own, but will they ever be able to come together?

Bestselling author K’wan weaves a tangled web of complex relationships and power struggles in Promise Kept, a tale peopled with gangstas, drug dealers, dreamers, and schemers from both sides of the Hudson.
