Synopsis: J.M. Benjamin Presents…
Heaven & Earth By J.M. Benjamin
The Columbians had Pablo Escobar…The Cubans had Scarface…The Italians had John Gotti…And the Brothers had Bumpy Johnson…But what about the Sisters?
Meet the female Nino Brown and Gee Money, only these two really are their sister’s keeper.
New Brunswick, New Jersey native Heavenly Jacobs inherited her beauty and street smarts honestly. Father a top notch go getter, mother a grade “A” dime piece. After tragedy strikes her home her only means of survival is to rely on what she acquired from them both. Her choice to ride for the wrong man ultimately lands her in prison where she is forced to re-strategize her game plan.
Eartha Davis is not your average female. Her eyes as well as her body were exposed to more then they were ready for at a young age. Between her mother, who was a bonafide gangster that loved young pretty females, and the streets of Plainfield, New Jersey, it was hard for her not to fall victim to and embrace all that was going on around her. Her crave for the streets, violence, and women all contributed to her imprisonment in Edna Mahan Correctional Facility.
As fate would have it, these two females are thrown together, in which they form a bond that is un-breakable and spills over into streets. Seeing that everybody got fat while they starved, they put together a team of female hustlers that got all men in the game on edge.
Jealousy, envy, ego’s, and pride all come into play unraveling beef between male and female that is far from being a game. Will the brothers sustain? Or will they succumb to the wrath of Heaven & Earth?

Sand and Rene can admit that they haven’t always been honest with one another, but are they ready ! to forgive and forget? When they each find themselves being blackmailed into working for Chyna, it’s no coincidence. They go against the grain to prove their love for one another, bearing in mind whose turf they’re treading on. An unrelenting thirst for notorious revenge has Chyna, Sand, and Rene, riding out, hanging low, and staking out their highest claims yet.
Excerpt from Stud Princess, Notorious Vendettas
Rene gauged the look in Sand’s eyes. She wasn’t getting a good vibe. She changed positions, crawled over the thick bedspread and made her way to the opposite end of the bed. “What’s wrong?”
“Rene, I think I’m wanted. But I swear to you, on my mama’s grave, that I ain’t kill nobody.”
Rene just listened, allowed Sand to talk without interruption.
Sand looked her woman straight in the eyes, her morning glow so inviting. “Baby, I cheated on you. More than once. More than twice,” she willingly admitted. “I fucked up. Big time. But I didn’t kill that damn girl. I didn’t,” she kept saying. Her pleading eyes wanted more from Rene than what she was offering. “Bae, you listening to me?” Sand asked unsure. “I said I’m wanted for murder.”
Rene eased off the bed. She had heard from Sand’s mouth, all she needed to hear. “Sand, I know all about Jasmine.”
Sand was taken aback. “What?”
“I said,” Rene allowed that jealousness to hang off her lips. “I know all about her. Y’all’s relationship—”
“It wasn’t a relationship,” Sand corrected.
“The threesome. I know about it all.” Rene could barely look at Sand anymore as her attention wandered around the room. “Why, Sand?” she asked, looking her in the face. “Were you ever going to tell me, or were you going to wait until I had to hear it from somewhere else?”
As Sand sat on the edge of the bed, totally confused, she could only bring herself to ask Rene one question, a question that didn’t even matter. “Who told you?”
Rene folded her arms, switching her weight from one leg to the other. She wanted to tell Sand about the night Vincent had come over. About June Bug raping her. About the earring the detectives found in their apartment that belonged to the dead woman—but where would she begin? There was so much Sand didn’t know about. So much that Rene wished she could just leave in the past and never have to hear about again. “It doesn’t matter who told me. Because I trusted you!” Rene pulled back the strands of hair that fell in her face.
“Like I trusted you! So don’t flip this around on me when you know damn well you were out there doing the same thing I was! At least I didn’t cross the damn line! A man, Rene? You know how that shit made me feel? Made me look? So what have I been all this time, huh?” Sand asked seriously, getting everything off her chest. “An experiment?”
Rene stood there in shock. Sand was making this all about her again. “You know that’s not true. I loved you dammitt! I changed who I was for you and you weren’t even there for me!”
Rene glanced around the small stuffy room before finding the courage to carry on. “You were always running around with your friends, always drinking, smoking, partying, and coming in all times of night like you didn’t have a woman at home. Now how do you think I felt? People laughing at me, talking about me,” she fired back. “What in the hell was I supposed to think?”
“I was working on my club and trying to make a living, for both of us! You know that. And fuck Shun!” Sand spat as Rene’s comment sank in. She knew those were the people Rene was talking about. “If you didn’t keep her in our business all the damn time, she wouldn’t have shit to laugh and gossip about. So you blame that shit on you.”
“But I needed you. I was going through something that I couldn’t fight alone and you weren’t there,” Rene said softly as that pent-up anger drenched her cheeks. She wanted Sand to know how trying their relationship had been for her and how she struggled to bring herself to terms with her sexuality. “I didn’t know if I was gay, straight, bi, or what. All I knew was that I was in love, with you.”
Sand stood up, waiting a few minutes before she said anything. All those labels didn’t mean shit to her, but it was obvious that they did to Rene. “I’m sorry,” she whispered. She moved closer to claim the woman who was meant to be hers. She held out her hands and wiped the tears from her eyes. “I never meant to hurt you,” she said. “I know I fucked up. I’m knowing
this. And I hate I took you through all that.”
Rene nestled her head against Sand’s chest.
“Look at me,” Sand said. “I’m going to prove to you that this shit we got, this right here,” she said, pointing her finger between them, “is real. And I swear to you from this moment on, you will never have to worry about me not being there for you again. Because I’m right here, baby.” She kissed the top of Rene’s left hand, every last one of her fingers, and then the inside of her palm. “And I don’t plan on going no motherfucking where.” She planted the last kiss on her salty wet lips …..
