About the book: Far from your ordinary hood love story, Love, Lies, and Karma is a rush of adrenaline dressed in unforeseeable betrayal, shocking tragedy, and unimaginable heartbreak. Love and loyalty will only get you so far in this world and LaLa had to find out the hard way. Fresh out of a break up, LaLa found herself in the arms of what seemed to be "Mr. Right.” What seemed to be an ideal relationship turns out to be the exact opposite of what she got with Stanley Williams. Not completely done with her past relationship with Tony, LaLa’s attempt at happiness is thrown into limbo with Stanley. Stanley has his own issues though, in the form of Karisha, a hood chick with a vendetta against LaLa that nobody saw coming. 

Amongst these four Compton natives, the love seemed sincere, the lies seemed harmless but the karma - the karma is real.
