A brainy poet pretends to be a sexed-up hip-hop star in this steamy urban novel by passionate living expert and TV personality Abiola Abrams.
BRIMMING WITH ELECTRIC SENSUALITY, DARE IS AN UNFORGETTABLE ODYSSEY OF TWO GUTSY WOMEN PLAYING BY THEIR OWN RULES.
Provocative filmmaker Abiola Abrams pushes the boundaries with her entertaining and “enlightening” (Rawsistaz) urban fiction debut!
Double-dipped in cocoa with brick-house curves, Maya Hope is 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 consequences.

Thank you so much to all of the wonderful readers, book clubs, magazines, book stores, radio shows and students who have embraced my debut novel Dare. I wanted to present this audience with something unique, poetic, well-written, and different than the fiction that we are used to. Someone asked me if readers were ready for a fun, smart and satirical adventure about friendship, drama and love that happens to be set in the world of hip hop; a story, as one Amazon reader put it, that is not about "gangstas, pimps, hustlers or hos," and the answer is a resounding yes! Thank you readers, for showing with your many enthusiastic letters that crashed my site that Dare is the book you were waiting for, and that their are many different kinds of books to serve our audience, and all are valid and necessary.From the Back Cover:
Provocative. Empowering. Outrageous. Fearless. There are many ways to describe Abiola Abrams, the BET host, feminist filmmaker and creator of The Goddess Factory-she's a dash of Oprah Winfrey, a sprinkling of Martha Stewart, plus a healthy dose of Candace Bushnell. What would be the result if she poured her life changing energy into a novel? Dig in and find out how far she goes in a phenomenally fun and entertaining fiction debut...
