Miami is full of action, hot babes, sexy men, drugs, sex and women who love to dance. Dez is no exception. At first it is a way to make ends meet and have enough security to pay her bills. When the time comes, she hopes to make her dreams all come true and really make it big. She soon finds that she is addicted to money when it exchanges hands. When Ginger shows her a whole new world full of ecstasy, Dez finds herself soon falling for Bentley, something she thought she would never do. Bentley is only twenty-four and is the biggest hip-hop star in the business. After Bentley makes her acquaintance, he is certain he can make her a rising star. Dez is smitten with Bentley in a way that she promised would never happen. She is excited to be able to follow her dream but someone in her past is determined to put a stop to her happiness. Amidst the glamour and shady side of South Beach, Dez learns life is not always a bowl of cherries.
The Rolexxx Club is a book filled with a slice of Miami that is not always seen by others. Dez has charm and pizzazz as she sets out to fulfill a lifelong dream only to find many obstacles crossing her path. Along the way she encounters many colorful characters that will either help or hurt her advancement. Ms. Smith details a vivid story of a young woman, along with others, who live in an enticing world not always full of glamour. She blends some street talk in to make the story more realistic along with the shady happenings that sometime befall the dancers as well as others. With a mixture of disloyalty, deception and jealously, Ms. Smith pens a tale that magnetizes.
