The Roadman: A London Street Romance

224 pages3 hours


London has never been the safest place to live or work, but lately, the violence has reached an all-time high. And that's where the trouble started...

When it comes to ink, Layla is the hottest name around. She owns her own tattoo studio where customers wait months for an appointment. She's been fed up with the fighting and crime around the studio for months now, but her brother ran a crew so she knows all too well what that kind of life is like.

It's late when Layla locks up her studio that night... She heads to the car park but walks straight into an altercation between two rival gangs. Shots fire and she runs... Only to be pulled to the ground by a shadowy figure.

When it comes to the road, no one's name is more feared than Jackson's. After years of running the streets, he's determined to leave that life behind. He's making moves onto more legit things and although he carries a certain type of name on the road, Layla soon realises that you can't believe everything you hear.

The trouble in Layla's life quickly intensifies, but now it's not just around her studio, it's up close and personal. She knows that she should stay as far away from it as possible but her heart just won't let her.

Can two people from completely different walks of life make it? Or will the streets find a way to come between them for good?
