    1. Body LanguageMentally, physically and emotionally abused, Keyshia Simmons is in desperate need of love and affection At 12, she was forced to leave her home in South Carolina for NYC to live with her aunt It s been five long years and Keyshia hasn t blended into the city at all, and despite living with family, she s all on her own Clyde Barker is the youngest of three boys His mother s best friend, Martha, took them in after tragedy rocked the Barker household While he may not be the best dresse [...]


    2. I loved the way Treasure started this book off with a bang and then took it back to give readers and insight on the characters In the beginning, my first thoughts were that Keyshia was naive and getting played But as the story line went on I began rooting for each character.This was a good read because the author didn t ramble about useless and unneeded things throughout the book He stayed on course and gave you just enough info that you needed to keep you informed and keep the suspense going.Ce [...]


    3. This is another one that I thought what took me so long to get to it This was well written and held my attention until the end The author brought 2 characters together that I could not help but to want something better for them Love the way the author brought the story together Looking forward to listening and reading to from Treasure E Blue.


    4. I had been eager to read this book ever since I read and loved Harlem Girl Lost many years ago After having this book on my audible wish list for months and months, I was so disappointed when it was not anything like I had expected I did not intend to compare this book to Harlem Girl Lost as I read or in my review now but I just can t seem unable to help but compare the two books First of all, this book is absolutely nothing like Harlem Girl Llost Keisha and Clyde is a much tame, diluted versio [...]


    5. This is my first book by Treasure E Blue I have to say I am very impressed with the storyline and the quality writing I am going to be reading his other books very soon Keyshia was an amazing character, with amazing strength, and did whatever she had to do to survive She made it through sexual abuse by a pastor, pregnancy, physical and mental abuse by an aunt, as well as drug addiction all within her early teenage years Clyde is also a great character I loved the way he treated Keyshia He was al [...]



    6. Wonderful ending Took me a while to grow with the Characters, but I really took to Keyshia and Clyde who were so opposite of each other I thought Martha was suspect when Caesar made the statement that Martha needed to get a job since she was no longer getting assistance for Clyde And end the end she got her just reward.



    7. This was my first urban literature novel I listened to this book on audio, and the reader did an excellent job He used different voices but not in a cheesy way The first part of the book was extremely violent and difficult to read because of the very raw nature of the writing and the story The second part of the book was actually quite a beautiful love story Of course, there were some fortunate coincidences and some unfortunate circumstances, but it was nice to read about two people who found su [...]


    8. This book started out great, maybe even too good I was ready for it to go down And then, it SLOWED all the way down It slowed down too much for my taste, when it picked back up things were going almost too well to me for the 17 year olds The concept was a great one I though but I thought it could have been better some how If it were detailed it would have allowed me to see what the characters saw and feel what they felt The characters never really came alive to me The end of the book was quite [...]


    9. Keyshia and Clyde is a novel that I have been wanting to read for years but I never got my hands on Finally for Xmas I got the paperback So worth the wait Keyshia is a young girl sent to Harlem from South Carolina due to being draped and impregnated by a preacher in her hometown Clyde lives in Harlem with his mother s best friend Martha who raised him along with his brothers Ceasar and Sonny after their father went to jail for shooting their mom I have to admit that the book didn t really jump o [...]


    10. I enjoyed this book It made me want to read the other book that they referenced alot I think Harlem Girl Lost The way that he brought to life some of the things that young kids go through the way that they overcome them I didn t like the way Keyshia some of her other relatives talked but I was able to get past that especially when she when back to school dropped that language all together She had natural smarts was able to forgive all of the people that betrayed her Clyde seemed to have a good h [...]


    11. I loved this book At first I was a little annoyed with the Southern verbiage Is, Yous, Wes, etc but as she began to speak correctly I got into the character of Keyshia I loved the unexpected turn of her going to college and studying law as opposed to her staying complacent or worse, getting herself killed I think the only twist I was expecting that wasn t there was Martha being the 3rd accomplice in the actual robbery of the bank the guy who got away , that would have made me smile The twists an [...]


    12. This was my first book by Treasure E Blue and I have to say I have a new author to add to my list Loved this book Keyshia and Clyde both was brought up doing wrong Keyshia was sent to Harlem by her mom due to the pastor getting her pregnant and her mom thought that would be be right to send her off Clyde grow up anger at her dad for shooting his mom leaving her in a zombie like state Keisha had to live and take care on her own by sleeping with all kinds of men to get by Clyde had to robby to mak [...]


    13. I loved this book I loved how Keyshia pushed herself to succeed in life even though she had to go through some turbulence in life I also hated how how Aunt treated her from her other kids This book was just simply amazing It had so much going on And shows what each character was going through in life What amazed me about Keyshia was her determination to save her boyfriend s innocence How she did everything in her power to go to school and everything to become a great intern and Lawyer in the en [...]


    14. This is my first book from this author I admit when I first started with this book, I was not sure that I would like it but I must say that I am pleasantly surprised The story turned out to be really good I found myself unable to put it down I wanted to know what was going to become of Clyde and Keyshia Best of all, I loved the epilogue So many authors leave you wandering what happened to various characters but this author gave full details on what happened to each character in the epilogue Than [...]


    15. So my sister gave me this book to read because she thought it was a good book and as i started reading, i would get so caught up in the book that i would miss dinner I would sit on the phone at night with my boyfriend on the other end and read to him as soon as he stopped talking We would stop every so often and picture ourselves in their predicaments.I think that the book is very interestinG and it is a real life look at what many people all over the world goes through on a regular Its a real e [...]


    16. I loved this book At first, I was aggravated with how country Keyshia was However, it wasn t bad enough for me to stop reading I coul really see some of my friends in Keyshia s situation I loved how her and Clyde had a ride or die relationship that couldn t anyone or anything could come between This was a great book I would recommend this to anyone even they don t usually read urban fiction I would give this book than 5 stars if possible.


    17. i learned from this book that nomatter where you came from or what kind of past you have you can always be somebody in life and come out on top i also learned that out of all the men out ther in the world there always going to be that speacial one that loves you for who you are Keysha and Clyde is a Bonnie and Clyde love story they ride together or die together and that s exacly what this book is about.


    18. Hands down THE BEST urban lit book I ve ever picked up I can only hope this man is still writing and I m ordering anything else he s written already this week Harlem Girl Lost was mentioned several times in this book and it sounds just as great as this one This is not a book to miss if you read urban lit.


    19. i cant liei cried and laughed during Keyshia and Clyde the way Ninny abused Keyshia was heart breaking clyde, ceaser, and sonny resented their father all these years because it was said their father shot their mother, but that wasn t true it was the woman he was cheating with that shot her clyde was in prison for a crime he didn t even commit but in the end, justice was served.


    20. I am fast becoming a die hard fan of Mr Blue His ability to rope you into his stories as if you are there is amazing Again, I applaud him for writing an entire book at once as opposed to the 99 installments fad that has become the norm in urban lit I highly recommend this as your next read, guarantee you won t be disappointed


    21. This was a great book I loved how the book developed the relationship between Keyshia and Clyde and how the had each others back through good and bad I loved Keyshia s determination to free Clyde no matter what it took favorite statement in the book was It s going o be some furniture moving going on


    22. I just completed reading the book Keyshia and Clyde by Treasure Blue The book focuses on the life of a young couple, Keyshia and Clyde, who paths collided while committing a crime This is a real life and painful story as each character deals with his her turbulent pasts, survival and commitment The author did a great job I highly recommend this book


    23. It was such a page turner that after I read it I had to listen to it audible edition Treasure shows you that even when you go thru the worst of the worst in your earlier yrs you still can make it to top When both Keyshia and Clyde each faced their past they were able to accomplish so much especially when they needed to help each other.


    24. I happen to think that Treasure E Blue is a magnificent writer, and he s proved it again with Keyshia and Clyde This is a true street romance, and will appeal to both the hard and soft side of any male or female reader.


    25. Urban Young Adult Fiction I have never read anything in this genre Not sure of the point of the story, lesson learned All turns out well no matter what crime you have committed, been involved with, or have been a receiver of Way too much romancing of violent crime for me.


    26. I can not believe I slept on this book for this long I absolutely loved this book I was amazed from the beginning to the ending I just could not put it down I experienced so many different emotions which what make a true 5 read.


    27. Great Read This is the second book I ve read by Treasure E Blue and he doesn t disappoint I loved the characters, the story line and the twists at the end I m definitely a fan of this author and plan on reading the rest of his novels.


    28. I listen to this book as a audio I enjoyed it so much it had me lauughing and crying I felt like keyshia when she was reading harlem girl lost lol Keyshia was definately a ride or die girl lol excerlent work treasure.
