Publisher's Summary

Nikki Turner's debut novel is a smorgasbord of manipulation, street life, greed, betrayal, envy, money, power, and revenge.

Yarni, a sweet and innocent girl from a well-to-do family, by chance meets Richmond's notorious drug kingpin, Des. The spark between them immediately blossoms into an astronomical love, which separates Yarni from her family and friends. Butwhen Des is sentenced to life in prison, Yarni will learn that being a hustler's wife isn't all that easy with her sole provider behind bars.

Nikki Turner takes listeners along for the ride as Yarni struggles to survive. At times she plays the game, at other times the game plays her. It is a journey filled with laughter and tears, failures and triumphs.

Started off well... then....

This one started off with great potential... but the last few hrs of listening tailed off. Nicole Small did great as usual. But the story line got pretty boring with no action or anything unexpected. Don’t think I’ll be going on to book 2. Not a bad listen, but nothing I’d highly recommend.

Great book and narration!!

I can’t wait to listen to the next part. It’s not like I haven’t already read this book 10 years ago. I did! But Nicole Smalls did an excellent job bringing Nikki Turner’s book to life.

It’s it just keeps going and going

It’s a nice story but it’s just soooo long every situation is drawn out I only finished because I just had to know how it ends. Nice story but I kept checking the time to see how much longer before it’s over.

Where is the story?

I couldn’t get past the first two chapters of the author thanking people. I just want to hear the story. Not worth waiting through it to get to the actual book.

Good Listen

This was a good listen however it ended so abruptly. I wish there had been a little more elaboration on what happened in their life.

It keeps going and going....

I did not enjoy this book AT ALL. It was long and drawn out. I got lost in the story line and couldn't finish it. Nicole small delivered as usual but this book was pretty awful. Things kept happening but there was still no real action or excitement.
