About her book
Two years ago while lying next to the lifeless body of her boyfriend, Bonnie made herself a promise. If she got out of this mess alive, she would never date a hustler again.
She made it out and graduated NYU rising among the elites at a record pace. She was where she belonged, among the movers and shakers. It was here she met Rodney and realized that somewhere the game had changed.
Rodney was the epitome of her weakness, sexy, smart and powerful, and if he was also a businessman, trying to leave the game, does that mean that technically he’s not a hustler?
Maybe. But, an unexpected meeting revealed that Bonnie had more significant issues at hand. Someone knew her secret. Bonnie wasn’t her real name, and they had witnessed the murder of her ex two years ago. What she didn’t know was that they also knew who put out the hit and that there was a new one.
She quickly learns that things aren’t always as they seem, and loyalty is only as good as the highest bid.

At five years old, her life was turned upside down, and the family was ripped apart when her father was sentenced to prison for a horrific crime. Shortly after, Talia went through a series of traumatic events from abuse, running away, and even homelessness at one point. None of that stopped Talia as she continued to push forward with a goal to get out of Tunnock Station and never have to depend on anyone ever again in life. Taking a chosen career path as an exotic dancer to help fulfill her dream of independency, Talia also tries to live a normal lifestyle at home with her boyfriend, Cam.

Brian, came into my life in such dismay and even though I wasn’t attracted to him at first the draw of the picture was there. Oh and not excluding the fact of him just being released from prison. With me having a heart of gold not thinking rationally let him into my world that I couldn’t be prepared for this gruesome, diabolical, lustful fiasco I endured.

UBAWA (Urban Books, Authors, & Writers of America) named Ali Shakur one of top 100 authors of 2018. When asked who are some people he looked up to, his response was “Sean Diddy Combs”. “I’ve always admired how Diddy conduct his business. Rather it be Bad Boy Entertainment, Ciroc, Sean John or whatever it is. His no nonsense approach to handling his business and getting deals done to grow his portfolio is truly astonishing. I want ANB House of Royalty to be what Sean Enterprise is to Diddy. An umbrella of different ventures. Most successful people have a quote that motivates them more than any other quote. When Marcus was asked what his go to quote is, he replied, “Are you the same animal, but a different beast?” The meaning behind it he says, depends on how the person views it; it can mean something different to each person. For him it means stay true to who you are, but understand that you must transform yourself into a beast to accomplish goals and overcome any obstacles. Well alrighty then Mr. Bouldin! With momentum on his side, Marcus Bouldin aka Ali Shakur is rolling full steam ahead with no clear sign of him stopping. And I’m glad I’m here for all of it!
