Here Comes the Judge

Tiana Laveen

Bad boy Jude wants to turn over a new leaf. But that leaf is poison Ivy...


A ruthless kingpin drug dealer, Jude 'The Judge' Cooper is in a league of his own. Armed with a killer smile, commendable acumen, and Southern charm, he mixes and mingles with the best of them. He also manages to elude the wide arm of law enforcement time and again. Jude's mission is simple: Be smarter than the rest. Faster than the best. Know the enemy. Accumulate wealth. Take out anyone in the way without hesitation. This motto has served him well.


But there's one problem...

A change is going to come. With his enemies breathing down his neck, the Judge is ready for a revolution, but with all changes, comes risk.

The last thing he expects is to fall in love in the process.


Iris Ashford is a divorced cashier at a grocery store, raising her niece. She's kind, level-headed and hardworking, a friend to many. Every night, a tall, beautiful-eyed heartthrob comes into the store and buys some of the most unusual items.

One fateful night, a simple conversation turns into a tempting business proposition and Iris unwittingly signs up for more than she bargained for.

Here is a tale of truth or dare, love or hate, and survival of the fittest. What is a man to do when the stakes are higher than his clientele? Iris has stumbled into a dark, seedy underworld, and is now bonded to the Judge. Marked for life to a man who doesn't believe in falling in love. Until he met her...
