Publisher's Summary

For Unique, life is good until her dope-dealing boyfriend, Took, is arrested and winds up in jail. Now she's broke as a joke, trying to put every petty hustle into play to chase hard times away from the door. With an empty refrigerator, a stack of bills piling up, a tenth-grade education, a big butt and a smile, it doesn't take long for her to learn to pull the wool over the eyes of any fool who's blinded by her good looks. She's sure that one day some guy's slip-up will be her ultimate come-up, and her days of nickel-and-dime swindles will be a thing of the past. Unique knows that every scandalous chick has her day but doesn't realize that her day will come, too!

If luck were money, Nina Thomas would be one broke sister. After taking a stab at stripping, she finds herself once again on the wrong end of a bad choice. Now she's on trial for murder, and the consequences of spending too much time with the wrong folks might just end up costing her life. Anyeh is out for revenge, and with the help of a secret friend on the other end of her cell phone, known only as "my baby", she just might get what she wants. She's after Diablo, the most well-known hustler in Virginia. He's one careful brother, but in the end his feelings for Anyeh might just be his undoing.

suuuuucccks

on chapter 18 and I just said forget it the book is so confusing story lines are weak and I really have no connection with the characters... the company that reads the book sounds like it has no passion and the read like they are in elementary school saying each word one by one

Not sure

Not sure why the store has so many bad reviews but I enjoyed it! Also the 3 short stories at the end! You did a good job even the narrator. On to the next one!

Very impressive

The stories were realistic and relate able but also very entertaining. The characters reminded me of the girls from “around the way” and I love seeing the different perspectives from each author.

Great read

The narration was excellent , the change of voice with each character was so dope. Most books u have someone reading each character Ik. The same voice making the story so dull... I loved this story as well highly recommend if your in to urban tales!

What's another word for HORRIBLE?

I stand corrected, THIS is the worst book I've ever regretted wasting 2 hrs of my life on! As if the story wasnt horrible enough, the narrator sounded like they had a 1st grade education reading word-by-word sentences with long gaps in between.

Many stories

Well this book was interesting because it started out with a great story Nina and Alonzo but after he went to jail the story line didn’t end like I imagined and then the other story with Mr. Diablo only was ok because his sister Kisha was about that life didn’t play about her brother so poor Onya got the business but it was good stories but you must follow

Hated it

It was all over the place too many moving parts did not flow. A waste of my time!
