It is very rare that I am given the time to sit down and read a book because I am so busy with my own project. Since downloading the Kindle app on my phone, I have now found a way to fit in time for reading. My first official purchase on the Kindle was Pink Lipstick and Pistols, a short story by Pinky Dior. The initial reason I bought this book was because I wanted to support the author who I saw via Facebook was a young mother who displayed a high level of determination and ambition. In addition, I had read samples of the book and wanted to see how the story played out.
Pink Lipstick and Pistols tells the story of Milan, a beautiful, young woman who loves her pink lipstick just as much as she loves her boyfriend, Stakkz. Although not billed as such, the story could be considered as a Bonnie and Clyde tale. The story takes off with a bang immediately after the reader learns that Miss Milan has a pink pistol in her possession.
What sets this book apart from others that I have read is that the lead female character is the one displaying the most aggression while her male counterpart handles the majority of the “business.” I enjoyed that the roles were somewhat flipped because in most Urban Fiction titles, the male is the one with the most gunplay. I can honestly say that there is not a dull moment in this story. For young adult readers who love twists and turns, this is the read for you.
I commend Pinky Dior for writing an entertaining story and I hope you all get a chance to check it out. You can purchase a copy of Pink Lipstick and Pistols exclusively on Kindle for 2.99. If you do not have a Kindle, try downloading a Kindle app for free on your phone or your PC! Enjoy!
