NBTM Virtual Book Tour + #Giveaway: Is Blood Thicker by Kruze @GoddessFish

Is Blood Thicker
by Kruze
GENRE: Urban Fiction


Have you ever looked at your circle and wonder if the people in it are really down for you? That’s the question Ceasar constantly asks himself. In his eyes betrayal is a worse crime than murder, so think twice before crossing him.

Daquans’s was life was filled with what he considered to be normalcy. He is completely devoted to his wife, Aviana, and their son. But how deep does his loyalty run? Can he stay with Aviana when her past catches up with her, attempting to collect an unpaid debt?

Nolan is a prominent member of his family, but he’s also the only one who managed to make it out of the hood. His family looks to him for all type of assistance, including money, because he doesn’t have the heart to tell them enough is enough. Maybe it’s the guilt he feels from his secret that keeps him digging in his pocket for his loved ones.

Join us as we dive into these strangers lives to explore their inner circles. Lies will be told, secrets won’t be kept, and graves will have to be dug. Take this ride with us, and maybe you could answer the question, is blood thicker?


That should be my house,” Hunei said as she continued to the end of the street.

At first, Hunei felt guilty about following Nolan, but that guilt quickly disappeared. The way she figured it, Nolan led her to the home she deserved. The home that one day she would share with him and their children. Hunei was brought back to reality by the sound of her cellphone ringing.

Hello,” she answered, annoyed.

I need your help,” Roneeka panted through the receiver.

What’s goin’ on?” Hunei asked.

Those guys that picked me up were feds,” Roneeka answered.

Then why the hell are you callin’ me?” Hunei asked.

Because I need help and Caesar not answering his phone,” Roneeka answered.

Caesar? Who the hell is that?”

Hunei hung up the phone, pissed that Roneeka had the nerve to call her. If the feds picked her up, then she was sure they were watching her and possibly listening to her phone calls. Hunei wanted no parts of whatever trouble Roneeka was in, especially if it included Caesar. She was so tired of his bipolar ass and was close to telling him that she didn’t want to work with him and Roneeka.

Hunei quickly erased any thoughts of Roneeka from her mind and made her way home. She lived in a two-bedroom apartment on the upper level of a duplex. Although she had expensive taste, she made sure to keep it simple when it came to decorating her home because her neighborhood was known for burglaries. She climbed the stairs emotionally drained from loving Nolan without it being reciprocated.

Interview with Kruze

    What was the hardest scene from your book to write?
    The hardest scene to write was the bathroom scene with Grease and Roneeka because I had to tap into a level of evilness that was uncomfortable.
    Why did you choose to write in your particular field or genre?
    I choose urban fiction because it is a genre that I’ve always enjoyed reading. I also can relate to a lot of the stories being told in this genre.
    If you write in more than one genre, how do you balance them?
    I haven’t tried my hands in any other genre but would accept the challenge.
    What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
    I enjoyed living the scenes in the book because when people speak to me about them, I can understand their excitement. I had the same OMG reaction they had to some of the scenes.
    What book that you have read has most influenced your life?
    I wouldn’t say any fiction book influenced me but there’s a bit of me in a lot of my characters. Therefore, I’m telling parts of my story through them.
    Tell us a little about yourself? Perhaps something not many people know?
    I can cook and play the piano but only a handful of people know that.

    Can you tell us something about your book that is not in the summary?
    This book is very emotional and will have your jaw dropped. I couldn’t believe I wrote some of these things LOL.
