Reduce Heat Continue To Boilby: J.J. ColagrandeJimena Quintero is anxious, beautiful and filled with wanderlust. Stuck in a cubicle, trapped in a crumbling marriage, she's haunted by her childhood and family secrets. That is until she meets Alex Lane, a local Wynwood bar owner.
Flush with details and subplots, including a look into the stripper world, a journey to a music festival, a horrible accident, an encounter with a super-star basketball player, and a lethal hurricane, Jimena must overcome more than most Millennials will ever face or she'll lose her sanity, heart and the city she loves to hate, Miami.
Reduce Heat Continue To Boil is more than a coming-of-age story of an engaging protagonist and the city she lives in. It attempts to re-brand Miami for the 21st century.

The Jitney is the Miami-Mini Bus that runs up and down NE 2nd Avenue. It costs $1.50 to ride, there are no official stops, and you yell in French Creole when you want to get off. It’s a bumpy, sweaty, and intimate ride through Miami, from the desolation of Downtown, into the renaissance of Wynwood and Little Haiti, past the Ivory Towers of Miami Shores and through the ruffled edges of Opa Locka and North Miami into Aventura and back.
The Jitney is uniquely Miami.
