Lagantra Outen Releases 'Good Guy Gone Bad: Book II'

Lagantra Outen's older sister Elmira had started writing her manuscript but she never completed it because of her death. Outen was very young back then but always felt that he wanted to continue something that interested his sister and that is writing. She inspired him to write the novel "Good Guy Gone Bad: Book II" (published by Xlibris), the follow-up to his previous publication, "Good Guy Gone Bad." For more details about the book, please visit

Lagant just cannot get it right. He seems to find serious problems dealing with the different women that come across his path. His first true love and his daughter's mother, Jada, hopes that she can patch things back together with him. Will she be able to capture the good guy again before he goes bad, after he became a womanizer, fighting over the females that show him special attention that he cannot be still long enough to stay focus? Will Lagant hold on to his first love after he has a taste of freedom, living the single life again, or is he off to the races running wild?

The navy is soon to release Lagant from his military duties because of medical reason. He is feeling pressured on how he would survive and support his daughter when all he knows is the military, which he joined straight out of high school. He starts to lose more of his innocence. He thinks about following the path of what he knows of his unknown father and older brother, making fast money, but he needs a team. He reunites with two of his younger cousins from Newark who are thug out and into the street life. Lagant puts a plan together that he thinks would work, or would it lead him to jail or death.

The story behind "Good Guy Gone Bad: Book II" hopes to remind readers about what and what not they should do, to know their mate before falling in love and having a baby out of wedlock and to know that it is not good to become a womanizer or a promiscuous person.
