David Cole is a drug dealer who negotiates deals for Frederick Rivera, one of the biggest mobsters in New York City, and David’s lover. David had an appointment to meet a new contact, a man known only as Jake. Jake was supposed to pave the way to an elite group of Americans, who would pay top dollar for prime drugs. There is an immediate attraction between David and Jake, one that could quickly become a deadly disaster.

Jake or Jack is a well written, well paced superb urban crime story. The characters are remarkably convincing. David’s life is the product of parental emotional detachment. Without the needed support at home, David’s childhood dream to become an inventor was forsaken for street life. David has the dual role job of Frederick’s whore, along with drug mule, in exchange for Frederick’s protection; no one is allowed to touch David without permission. Upon meeting Jake, David experiences love for the first time. Jake is torn between duty and desire for David. Understanding the consequences involved, Jake waits three years before he reveals his true feelings to David. The amazing D. J. Manly has created a marvelous saga filled with emotional turmoil, apprehension, as well as fantastic lovemaking. I thoroughly enjoyed Jake or Jack.
