Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist, music producer, and
actor T.I. and his bestselling celebrity collaborator, David
Ritz, continue the explosive story of Power and Beauty that
began in the street-lit epic Power & Beauty.
When his mother, Charlotte, was killed, Paul “Power”
Clay and his closest friend, Tanya “Beauty” Long, fell under
the spell of a savvy and ruthless Atlanta businessman named
Slim, who promised to protect them.
Wise beyond her
years, Beauty always knew that the only person she could
rely on was herself. It didn’t take long for the levelheaded
young woman to recognize the simmering violence beneath
Slim’s street charm. But getting away from him wasn’t easy,
and it came at a heartbreaking price: turning her back on
Power. Escaping to the glamorous catwalks of the Big Apple,
she’s worked her breathtaking good looks and quick wit to
build a thriving fashion business. Despite her success,
she’s still haunted by the pain of leaving Power behind.
Money and new men cannot erase the memory of the true love
To Power, Slim’s world held everything
he thought he wanted: women, wealth, power, authority. He
discovered too late that Slim Simmons isn’t just a
businessman—he’s a ruthless killer who will turn on anyone

murdered Charlotte. Now, he controls the fate of her only
But neither Slim nor Power count on Beauty.
Like Slim, she is a master who will manipulate, seduce, and
sacrifice to get what she wants. She’s never let anything
stop her from fulfilling her desires, and she will broker a
dangerous bargain to save the only man she’s ever loved. But
is saving Power worth sacrificing herself—body and soul?
Will his youthful ambitions lead him to redemption—or deeper
into the darkness? Will they both become everything they
swore they’d never be?
A tale of gangstas and
sistas, money masters and politicians, that moves across the
globe from Paris to New York, Atlanta to Tokyo, the
Caribbean to California, Trouble & Triumph is a
hip-hop mash-up of loyalty, betrayal, revenge, desire,
greed, family, politics, and absolution—and of two
unforgettable young star-crossed lovers from the streets who
will risk everything for their dreams . . . and for each
