Ricky, Derrick and Jamal have to make some hard decisions and Know Your Place by Shelly Ellis. The second book in A Branch Avenue Boys series is even better than the first. These three friends lives unravel more as they’re confronted with some hidden secrets, betrayal and unlawful behaviors.

Jamal has bitten off more than he can chew being under the Mayor’s wings. His integrity is in question and as I read the story I was waiting for him to do the right thing. Jamal frustrated me the most in this book because I wanted him to use his head.

Derrick’s love triangle between his fiance, Melissa and co-worker, Morgan brought a dramatic element to the story. He is also dealing with a troubled student at his institute, which causes some issues. Derrick has to make a choice and I’m glad he went in the direction I wanted.

Ricky’s in hot water all because of a woman who sold him out to the cops. He can’t let it go and is on the hunt while working for the cops and staying in contact with Dolla, Dolla who got him in the mess in the first place. I love the twist in the story when Ricky finally finds the woman he loves. His character is my favorite because his transformation is worth reading and his loyalty is what every woman and friend needs.

Know your place is a gritty Urban Fiction book about corruption, betrayal and secrets written by a talented writer, who keeps you turning the pages. I can’t wait until the new installment is available.
