Former professional poker player Glenn Gamble is an author from Chicago, IL who doesn't have one of those inspiring stories where he goes to the state penitentiary to discover his gift for writing amazing stories. Instead, he worked on his craft during long romantic dates at Starbucks and Panera Bread with his laptop and a story. His inspiration came from friends who encouraged him to pursue his dreams to become a writer. Without a prison sentence, Gamble has managed to pen A Thousand Chances, Bon Appetit, Escape, On the Run, James, and Busted; and is currently writing future installments of both the Jim Money and Darius Blaylock Poker Series.
In his spare time, Gamble likes to watch Chicago Bulls games, drop twitter bombs from the sky, slam facebook with status updates, and bet on low-stakes rat and roach races taking place in various public housing project apartments across the United States.

Ugh! Now I see where the title comes from the ending was like a nasty, but sick shocker, gross.
Jim wants his money that's owe to him by one dude name Chuck. His girl Jessica wants him to leave the street life. Come to find out Jim is well educated. Carla knows something's up with her man which is Jim's friend Steve. But when I find out what's really going on at the end I was like ugh.
Wasn't written well to me way overkill on the cussing and seems rushed. I also didn't care for the part when Jim trying to show how educated he is to a 15 year old boy, but he himself rather stay hustling the streets and not do anything with his own mind. That boggled me. 2 stars for trying and for me finishing in less then thirty minutes.
