Publisher's Summary

Number-one Essence best-selling author Shannon Holmes returns with the explosive sequel to his national best seller, Bad Girlz.Tonya Morris, aka "Tender", is back, and this time the ride is wilder than ever.

Good girls go to heaven. Bad girls go everywhere else.

Coming of age in the Badlands of north Philadelphia - one of the toughest and poorest communities in the country - Tonya Morris has had to make some desperate and, at times, ruthless moves in her bid to survive. When she stepped into the unforgiving business of stripping, she found herself caught up in a world of sex-filled nights, dirty money, backstabbing cohorts, and murder.

She left that world behind to become a hairstylist. However, after she is blacklisted from salons across Philadelphia and evicted by her shady landlord, Tonya finds herself back in the stripping business, except this time she promises herself things are going to end differently.

Tonya teams up with her best friend, Na'eema, to organize underground sex parties, and it's not long before they have a team of beautiful girls and are rubbing elbows with athletes, rappers, and celebrities.

Then Tonya's ex-lover and now music industry superstar, Q, steps onto the scene, and everything takes a dramatic new twist. Because it's not just Q who is back in her life. His murderous baby mama, Niecey, is fresh out of jail and ready to raise hell, and she's got Tonya in her sights. In the meantime Tonya's past has risen like a beast, threatening to tear away all her newfound success. But Tonya isn't going down without a fight.

so so

it was ok but honestly i didnt feel like we needed a part 2...atp is was dragging the storyline..and also they could have allowed tonya to fair out better by pairing her with a better man and not make her a baby mamma. idk that ending wasnt very good

It Will Keep You Reading!

This book is an urban story from the beginning to the end! Some parts will make you feel sad and wonder how can people treat other people in such a manner. However the story ends on a positive note! Excellent 👌

Very Good

I like how it wasn't the same ol thing in book 2. Ups and downs but not forced. This book is well written and the narrator.... well we know she's great.
