military vet, turned hustler, turned Gangster, turned Crime Boss. His marriage is on
the rocks; fresh out of the military, AC finds himself broke and lost with a Wife and
three kids to feed. Trapped in Sin City and working any job he can get from day to
day, to make ends meet. Hating the state of mind he's in right now, a really messed
up way to be! Gone are the days when Uncle Sam paid for housing, day care and
groceries. Now, all own his own again, with no idea of where life is going to take him.
One thing for sure, Andy “AC” Cooper no longer wanted to wear that Army uniform

the outsiders don’t know is that beneath the bright neon lights, the delicious buffets
and luxurious casino’s, lays a whole different world that would eventually suck him in.

-Michael, Las Vegas
The word Adoration can be defined as
fervent and devoted love or simply put; to
worship. During our time on Earth we will
all experience this powerful thing called
Love. This novel will take you on a
journey seen through the eyes of four
couples and their relationships. For Love
we endure amazing things and some of
us will go to the limit to keep it.
Love can fill your heart with joy or leave it
filled with hate. Adoration explores love at
several levels; some of them good; some
bad. In Book One of this Series; hearts will
break, tears will fall, blood will shed and
bells will chime; all in the name of love.
Please be advised; all of our reader

Adoration, explores the deep
depths of Love and what we will
endure to grasp and hold on to that
feeling. This familiar journey is one
that we all have experienced or will
one day, if we have not already.
Some of us are lucky to have found
love and to keep it. While others
just can’t seem to get it right. Which
are you and which character will
you identify with in Book 1 of this
erotic love series.
|I would like to thank everyone for
their continued support. It truly

Lit. Hope you enjoy it and can't wait

ANTWAN 'ANT' BANK$
Antwan really hit home with some of these guy characters in Adoration; I know a few knuckle
heads myself that reminds me of Craig! As far as my favorite character! I would have to say
Tonya! She's a Boss! lol! Great Job!
-Darlene Memphis, Tenn.
Ok now, did your mother read this book? You are a mess! Keep it coming, I love your style!
-Rochelle, The Boogie Down
Erotica is right! Love this book and a box of chocolates! Yes! Yes!
-Amanda, St Louis, Mo.
Adoration is the right name for this book; these characters did some crazy things but what's
even scarier! I did some of them myself. Does that make me psycho! lol!
-Michelle, Detroit, MI.
This is a page turner, I truly enjoyed it. I'm glad you chose me to be in your focus group for
this project! My favorite characters were Scott and Lisa, crazy ass couple! Why are they even
-Bianca, Manhattan, NY
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I really enjoyed Adoration; me and my sisters had a good
time reading it for the past three Saturday's with a bottle of wine. I must say we were ready to
get our groove on afterwards though! Wow, there are some steamy scenes in here buddy!
-Selena, Charlotte, N.C
So after I read the first Release; Made. I was curious how ANT was going to follow that great
book up, believe me; it was an awesome read! Now I have in my hands Adoration, it's more on
the softer side no hardcore violence :( but plenty of my other favorite; Erotica! I must admit,
you are great at your craft. Adoration is very entertaining and filled with emotions and steamy
sex scenes, definitely a page turner!
-Veronica, Los Angeles, CA
Well Mr. Antwan 'ANT' Bank$; you have a fan forever! Adoration, Love Unconditional, I
couldn't wait to read this novel, simply because of the title. I must admit, once I started to read I
wanted to finish it right then. A definite page turner, people you will not be able to put it down.

Earlier in the mid 80’s and early 90’s; I
had the unfortunate opportunity of
being friends or acquaintances with
two special individuals. Now that I am
thinking about it, maybe it wasn’t
unfortunate but faith that we crossed
paths. Their stories we’re similar, even
though they happened at different
times and in two separate parts of the
It is through my God given gift that I will
deliver their message; through Eric; F.I.
T.H’s main character. I find it my
destiny to help others see life as they
did; at tragic moments in both their
lives. The time and location of events
and names have been changed to
protect them and their victim’s families.
Hopefully this story will show why it’s
not cool to be a bully but deadly, when
you factor in all the consequences.
In my 4th release I decided
to write in the American
Drama Genre. This story is
about a growing epidemic in
our nation's schools and
I chose the title F.I.T.H.;
because for me it was a
chance to grab the readers
attention, spark their
interest, by simply wanting
to know what it stood for.
Well it stands for Fear
Influences Thine Heart.
Which is a very true
statement when you are
dealing with the premises of
this story; a coming of age
Drama about Bullying.
It is inspired by true events
and even though these
events happened in my
teenage years; years ago.
Bullying is still a big
problem, probably more so
now than ever before. If you
are a Parent or Teacher
with kids in school, this is a
must read for you. It will
give you great examples on
what to look for in your kids
behavior and hopefully
open your eyes to a big
problem that we have to
take care of.

My son has been being bullied in school; It really changed him and effected his school work. I
can identify with this story and hope that we as adults find a solution soon. I had to relocate and
put my child in a different school it was so bad.
This story touched my heart and I felt for the character and what he had to endure. It's a story
that needed to be written and I hope that all the readers can learn from it and know what to look
for in their kids when they are being bullied. So many times as parents we don't pay close
- Martha, Long Island, NY.
I'm am so glad Antwan wrote this book; it shows what happens from several point of views. The
Bully's, the victim, his friends, Teachers, Parents and peers. This epidemic effects so many
people and needs to be dealt with!

is at the top of his game and is
connected with every Men’s Magazine
Publisher, Casting Directors, Hip Hop
Artist and Talent Managers in the
industry. Getting a session with him is
like winning the lottery; when it comes
to being an eye candy Model, in the
ATL. Any Model knows; that once the
session starts and that camera
flashes; all rules will be broken to
obtain that success; if not! Then keep
A short story with a bang! I really enjoyed it; I have to read more.... A teaser, loved it!
-Christy; Dallas, TX.
This short story was written from a very clever angle. I'm a fan of Erotica but this story took the
cake; very innovative.
-Tamara; Atlanta, GA.
At first I was hesitant then I thought; what the hell; it's only 99 cents. Ladies; BANK$ is
destined to be one of the greats. This guy loves to write with detail. Awesome!

All I have to say is; I would love to be MIss Jones! The ending was too crazy. Lol!

fill in their new roles, while Chief
Espinoza suspicions escalates as Sin
City crime rise’s along with Hector’s

up from where she left off. Cash flow is

helms as Crime continues to pay big for
the new Sin City Boss. The recipe of
Sex, Drugs and Murder prove to be the
perfect mix, as one family falls and the
next Boss is donned; King of the Devils
|I Loved writing part two to the
MADE Crime Thriller Trilogy. I
hope you all enjoy this one as
well as you did part 1. With this
being a continuation of my first
ever novel; I felt connected
with the characters more than I
could have ever imagined.
As in everyday life some
unexpected events arise that
cause for some unique turns
and plots that continues to
make MADE a true Gangster
I do appreciate you guys and
thank you so much for your
I loved how the characters evolved from the first book. Very creative Mr. Bank$; I am upset with
one of the characters and how everything turned out. Don’t worry; I won’t spoil it but you took me
for an emotional roller coaster ride in this one. Great Work!
-Amanda; San Francisco.
I would have to say that part two is my favorite. Only because of how much fun the characters
had in this one. Shopping sprees, trips and all that money! And oh the Diamonds! Loved it!
-Carroll; Brooklyn; NY.
Oh my! Can you say thriller! This book kept my heart racing; constantly wanting to know what
was going to happen next! Awesome Read!
-Melissa; Ontario, Canada.
This is by far turning out to be one of the best Trilogies I’ve read in a longtime. I’m a fan of
Organized Crime novels but not so much Urban Mafia. But I must say that Mr. Bank$ has done
his homework and this story continues to ring true!
-Michael; Las Vegas.
I love the erotic scenes in this book! Sooooo amazing! I can read them over and over! Great
-Dana; Charleston; S.C.
Oh my God! Monica is that ride or die chick! I love her character in book two! I’m ready for book
-Michelle; Atlanta; GA.
People if you haven’t read any of MADE; you need to start. It will take you places that you would
have never imagined. Antwan Bank$ does not hold any punches and pours it all out on the page.
If you’re conservative; you might want to say a few prayers before you pick this Master Piece up
because I guarantee you won’t put it down. His style is unlike none other and he’s brave enough
to go outside of the box. Don’t expect your normal literary structure when you venture into his
world. Just trust him and you will enjoy the ride of your life.
