    1. romancenoveljunkies for readers BRIEF SUMMARY Raven grew up the princess of Flint, MI. With her father being Benjamin Atkins, no one touched her, until her path crosses with Mizan, an up and coming hustler. Mizan manipulates everything around him to get what he wants and what he wants is Raven and her father’s thorn as the top kingpin in FlintOUGHTSA great novel, but I cringe and detest the ending because selfishly it’s not what I wanted. I felt that I went through so many different stages o [...]

    2. Wow! Wow! This was an awesome read. Sad but good. Which it could have been a happy ending 4 Raven and I'm glad Mizan got his.

    3. 4 Holy Crap StarsThis book was recommended to me by a fellow reader. I thought she liked me. But apparently not. I like a bad boy book. I like hard to love characters. But these people. They take that to a whole new level. They are mean. And the girlRaven. I want to slap her. She caused so many problems. OMG. She gets a gold medal in naïve and stupid. And it hurts everyone around her. Raven is the daughter of a very successful drug dealer. That makes her feel special, important and privileged. [...]

    4. This was a very good book. I rate it a 4.5. A real page turner. Raven was the daughter of a kingpin in Flint, MI. He kept his family removed from the lifestyle and danger by residing in a suburb of Flint. As Raven grew up, she wanted all eyes on her and she wanted to be older than she actually was. She was very pretty and had a nice body. Well she caught the attention of the wrong man, Mizan. Mizan was a stick up man. From their initial encounter I had a bad feeling. You will see the wheels turn [...]

    5. Minor Spoilers included in this Review5STARSGenre: Urban Romance"Don't be the moth that flies into the flame" -Justine in Moth to a Flame.If this book was written by Shakespere himself it would no doubt be a Tragedy. Oh yes this one is a tear jerkerThis book was about a 17yr old girl Raven who meets a street hustler named Mizan age 22. Mizan imo was the devil incarnate in fact he is the second character i have read this year that brought out deep hate i never knew i had. Good job Ms. Antoinette. [...]

    6. Every step of the way I found myself rooting for Raven. So young, trying to live a fast life and getting caught up with people who didnt have her best interest at heart. A lot of tragedy went down in this book. I did love the girlfriend relationship between Raven and Nikki, always there for one another. And who couldn't love Ethic, he oozed swag and charisma as well as being street smart. This was definitely a good listen. The ending got me, didn't expect what was coming until the last minute. I [...]

    7. 5 star read Dang that ending was sooo sad man dang . Wow that was so shocking smh. Man I felt some type of way about that. And I'm glad that her son lived and didn't get hit even though Nikki died with Raven. :( and also I'm glad Mizan crab cake self got what was coming to him karmas a B little nigha bih. But good book definitely enjoyed it.

    10. I started this book and then had to put it down and wait a couple of days and begin reading it again. Raven Is the daughter of a kingpin. She asks for nothing. She has everything she could every ask for.That is until she meets Mizan. Mizan is the stick up kid who wants Raven's Father's place. Raven's actions prove to be the answer to Mizans wants. While the book was good and quick to read, i hate books where the characters do not show any growth. I wanted to shake her and say "GET A GRIP!" Some [...]

    11. 3.5The story hooked me and had me truly invested in the characters. I really liked the book for the most part; however, can the woman catch a break!!!… I mean what a Freakin’ Disaster…Don’t lead me down such a Traaagic path only to end it in such a cruel way…I felt cheated.There were so many chance's for this story to change for the better, one should've been taken.This book should teach you not to shelter your kids to much, because they'll end up idiots.

    12. IntenseWow this was a great read! Man that dang Mizan was a dirty dude. I felt so bad for Raven. She didnt known if she was coming or going All Benjamin wanted to do was save his daughter. I knew the mom was going to do that by listening to her words Dang so much death. Poor Nikki, she already had enough going on Wow!!!!

    13. This was a really decent read. In the beginning, it kind of put me in the mind of The Coldest Winter Ever with a little twist. I'm really picky about reading books that have errors in them and this book had quite a few. I was able to ignore them in the beginning, but towards the end, I was frustrated. There weren't many, but after building up, I just got a little annoyed (that's just me though). With all the things Raven went thru with Mizan, I surprisingly didn't find myself judging her for her [...]

    14. WOWWWWWWW! What can I say, one thing is for sure is that a hard head makes a soft A**! Raven was like so many of these young girls today, grown and hard headed. I was so disappointed in her on what she did to her father just to be with the ENEMY. I especially liked Ethic for being the man he was and always coming to the rescue, I think they were a good pair. I wont give to much away but this was definitely a Awesome read and I highly recommend this book, I could not put it down until I finished [...]

    15. Finish this book in two days. It was so Good! but of course it was, It's by Ashley, and her& JaQuavis books are off the chain and If you haven't starting reading any of there books then you are seriously missing out!:) "Get on top of your Reading Game"Mizan was Evil as any low-down dirty man could get, Raven like most young "in love dumb girls" had to find out the hard way.

    16. I thought I had read all the books on bad boyz. But bad is these gangstasIf this is really the life for real. Its damn scary. I mean these guys called players that manipulateey truly put the meaning to the words MIND FUCK.

    17. Playing with fire you’re sure to get burned. A Street novel! Moth to a Flame was exactly that, but this book was more than just a story of the ups and downs and wrong turns of a young girl who had it all. I, like so many other teenagers can relate to this book. It had so many heated moments from the beginning it was filled with page turning detail and never ending drama. New York Times bestselling author Ashley Antoinette captured all the obstacles a teen girl that’s trying to become women c [...]

    18. What a freaking roller coaster ride! This book is about Raven a young girl looking for love in all the wrong places. Her father is a notorious drug dealer who wants better for his daughter. He wants her to marry a college educated man, but Raven isn't having that. She is first smitten with Ethic, a guy that does business with her father. Later she hooks up with Mizan, a guy she gets with because Ethic doesn't want to be with her. Raven is like a moth and Mizan is the flame that burns her every t [...]

    19. Moth To a Flame was a great book from the beginning to the end. As I enter the world of Raven Atkins the princess of the hood. The drama, deceit and the lies keep me on the edge of my seat. This book and the characters took my on a ride of my life. The naive decision that Raven made during this story had my mouth open and cause me to feel emotions that I have never felt while reading a book. The destruction that went on in this book was beyond words. Moth To A Flame was the best loved story that [...]

    20. Wow this book was phenomenal. From beginning to end it held my interest. I am so very sad though the way it ended. It seemed Raven never had a full chance at life. It's like her life was stolen at such a young age. It goes to show you how you precious life can be stolen by one wrong decision. So many women get themselves caught in that same trap, they get infatuated by one guy and he turns out to be the devil. I really would have liked it to have ended much happier but hey, it was awesome still. [...]

    21. This was a great story I mean love ion betrayelLust but at the end of the day I'm SHOCKED AND CONFUSED by a DADDY'S GIRL OF THE GAME would turn on and be so OBLIVIOUS to the goings on when faced with the situation I know the men want to shield their daughters but the way the story is written I find it a little unrealistic in this regard. why does the women have to die in the endwhy couldn't there be another miracle well not miracle but just more apt killers cially when her dude was SOO POLISHED [...]

    22. Even though I don't like Raven because of all the things she's inflicted on the people around her and more so herself just because she was in love with Mizan (she betrayed her parents for a hustler she barely knows), this book was a page-turner. I read this book weeks ago and frequently scenes pop into my mind that really gets me thinking and I love it when books leave a lasting impression on me. This book's impression on me was positive because even though the story is tragic,it was well writte [...]

    23. Another 5 star must read, but sad ending. Loved Ethic's character and swagger. I wouldn't mind reading more about him. I wouldn't spit on Mizan if his dirty behind was on fire. So glad Ethic got to give him a taste of some of the pain he had put Raven through. Poor Raven wanted to be grown way before her time, and because of that she was so easily manipulated, and ended up losing everyone she loved. I hate that Justine wasn't strong enough to endure. She was truly a gangsters wife. This was a gr [...]

    24. H U S T L E R --Being that I first meet Ethic in Prada Plan--he is the same man (my fictional boyfriend)--his story needs to continue on--hate how things ended for Raven. Mizan gets what he deserves (uggh).

    25. This book was really goodRaven has to be the dumbest girl I've ever read aboutWith her daddy being a king pin you would think she would have more common sense/street knowledgeShe was the downfall of her entire familyIt's just sad at how naive she was!

    26. Wow this book was so good. I could not put it down I had to finish it before I went to bed tonite. Ashley has become one of my top five authors, she has not disappointed me yet and I am loving it This book is a must read for anyone who has not read this book.

    27. This book was great I just wish that Raven could have lived to raise her son. But I am glad Mizan got what he deserve Moth to a flame was a great book to read
