With many of men trailing behind her high heeled shoes and money at stake, Jacks truly finds out why it is a man's world
T.A. Terrell does a great job of mixing scandal, murder, obsession and passion and providing us with a solid debut effort. Readers will not be disappointed."
"Adoring, sensitive and an enthusiast when it comes to her father, William, like most little girls, Jacquelyn (Jacks) is a daddy's girl. Dreaming of someday running her family's company, White Inc., alongside her dad. Before those imaginings can come into fruition, Jacks experiences her very first loss in love.
In the course of recovery, Jacks meets a man, Daniel. He's old enough to be her father. With no home, family, or friends, Jacks is dedicated to school and her relationship with Daniel, who she's certain, is destined to her husband. When a choice is needed, Jacks again finds herself defeated in love.
Atlanta has been the source of too much pain. Jacks is in search of a new sights. Fascinated by Washington, D.C., she loads up the Mercedes and moves. Carjacked, deprived, beleaguered and discriminated against for race and gender, Jacks learns that it's not about the quality as much as it is the strategic moves the opponent makes. Yet, you have to wonder, is it a crime or just aspiration?
J.A. White is now a lucrative company run by the very ambitious Jacks. While reaching both highs and lows in corporate America, Jacks has armed herself with a heck of a resume. Deceptive, greedy, loathing and risking someone's downfall, I CROSSED THE LINE, is one read that you won't want to miss.
Newcomer, T.A. Terrell, unbolts the boys' club by adding a fresh bold approach. It's a man's world....NOT!"

I just want to say that this books is so refreshing and easy to read. I love to read but it's hard sometimes because of the distractions in my life. So I tend to drift off and get frustrated because it would take me a long time to read a book. After a year I finally picked up the book and decided to read it. I couldn't put it down. I love the story. Especially of how this young lady became so powerful through her struggles. It's been a month and I'm almost done reading. I'm glad I went straight to the back to see that this is a series. I look forward to reading all of your books.
