is the crazy, sexy, smart debut novel by Abiola Abrams- the story of a sociologist who goes undercover and winds up

the world of Hollyhood is a searing tale of love,

Meet Maya Hope.
Double-dipped in cocoa with brick-house curves, she's a lover of jazz, a political poet, and a sociologist. Her
best friend and roommate, Athena Jackson, is her opposite in every way- a petite ex-cheerleader who's always blaring rap,
grinding out rhymes, and ready to take the next man home. When Maya is forced to pinch-hit in an audition and bust Athena's
rhymes, she finds herself on an undercover escapade in the wild world of hip-hop as the raw, sexy, roughneck Jezebel. After
striking a deal with her own personal devil, Maya sets off on the tempting roller-coaster ride of a lifetime -- finding music,
more fun than she's ever had, and even a man or two...but not without Faustian consequences.
An off the hook cast of colorful characters includes Lucy, the diva deluxe brand-addicted
publicist from hell; Shell the Boy Wonder, wonderkind entrepreneurial label mogul party boy and Thug, the gritty handsome
hardcore rapper with something to prove.
with electric sensuality, Dare is an unforgettable, envelope-pushing odyssey of two gutsy women playing by their
own rules. On her fantabulous journey through the delicious world of temptation, the real question is whether Maya really
finds joy or loses herself?
