This novel was good up until the depressing ending. Done right and starring someone like Beyonce this wound be a good movie. All they need to do is fix the ending. 7 of 10 stars

When Fabiola Mays hits the stage, all eyes are on her. She has the looks, the moves, and the voice to be the hottest diva alive. Her talent and sex appeal attracts the attention of the music industry's most influential (and shadiest) mogul, one who will do whatever it takes to get Fabiola into his bed. Too fly to bow down to such sleaze, Fabiola earns herself powerful enemies and an unlikely ally. When Casino, an older gangster battling demons of his own in the music biz and on the streets, crosses her path, they pool their hopes and their assets to fight for a brighter future
