The 716: Love & Consequences by author A.A. Lewis was my first read by this author, reading the story brought back a lot of memories I could relate to coming up in the '90s. Love & Consequences follows four friends coming up together having fun, living carefree, and navigating different relationships with men with varying personalities this makes for great conflict and adds grit to the story. Overall I viewed as a coming of age story they all matured at different rates in different ways throughout the course of the book. I liked the story, had to give it a 4* because although I understand why the "hood aspect" was attached to the story I feel like it missed the mark it could have been told just as well without the crime family portion it just didn't hit for me. It is definitely worth the read though!
