    In the hood, every day is about struggle and survival, and no one understands that daily grind more than 22-year-old Kaeyla “Goldie” Dennis. She’s been the “wifey” of an older, wealthy man since she was 15, but the discovery of their longtime affair by his real wife brings to a crushing end her hood-fabulous lifestyle in their low-rise project in Newark.

    "Too Much of a Good Thing"
    Overall

    I listened to the whole story. But it was too much rambling about her p*ssy walls or throbbing p*ssy. It just wasn't necessary. There were some good parts but more unnecessary dialogue. I think the author had a good idea. The book may interest younger readers. I wouldn't suggest it to the mature readers and/or listeners.

    Three years after narrowly escaping a one way trip to the gas chamber, the fugitive known only as Animal finds himself drawn back to the scene of the crime: Harlem. Throughout his entire time in exile, the only thing that kept Animal going was the thought that he would one day be reunited with his soul mate, Gucci - but one bullet changed everything. When his enemies tried to murder Gucci, they crossed the line, so he vowed to cross them all.

    I love these books!! I have been an Animal fan since first listening to Welfare Wifeys. I like this series so much I had to go back and purchase the first book "Section 8". I'm glad I did. Cary Hite is my favorite narrator because he bring the characters to life. I truly hope there will be another book. I was glad that the Suge Knight wannabe got the sh*t slapped out of him but was devastated at what happened to Teonna.
    Don't stop now Kwan because you are on a roll! Your ghetto novels are the BOMBDIGITY and I am an ANIMAL fan for life!

    Story

    I couldn't wait for the sequel to the first book. Unfortunately I was seriously disappointed once I did. The narrator is excellent but the storyline was far too drawn out. I found myself fast forwarding the book continuously. I found it difficult to finish the book but I did because my friends and I get together to discuss the books we read and/or listen to. A few friends decided NOT to finish the book. Sorry T.I. but this sequel was horrible. Definitely not worth the wait.

    Madison Tyler thought a man like Granville Washington could fulfill her sexual desires and her need for occasional male companionship. And as the owner of a multimillion-dollar multimedia firm, that’s as much as Madison wants or needs right now. Granville is desperate to hold on to Madison. The harder she tries to end contact with him, the harder he fights to stay connected to her. He knows she doesn’t love him the way he loves her - she’s repeatedly said so - but if she takes time to get to know the man behind the muscles, he’s convinced she’ll agree that they’re perfect for each other.

    Story

    I didn't like this book at all. It just seemed ridiculous to me. Cary Hite and Nicole Small are two of my favorite narrators but I didn't like them in this book. Alot of long pauses occurred during Cary's reading when he and Nicole were reading and/or interacting. I'm still trying to finish the book. The part where Madison gave the detailed description of her vagina was ridiculous. I found myself fast forwarding this book throughout. I wish I could get a refund on the book but of course I can't. Granville's craziness is the only thing that made the book interesting. I have over 120 books and I'd rank this one at the bottom like 118.

    Ptolemy Grey is 91 years old and has been all but forgotten - by his family, his friends, even himself - as he sinks into a lonely dementia. His grand-nephew, Ptolemy's only connection to the outside world, was recently killed in a drive-by shooting, and Ptolemy is too suspicious of anyone else to allow them into his life, until he meets Robyn, his niece's 17-year-old lodger and the only one willing to take care of an old man at his grandnephew's funeral.

    This book ranks very high in my library. I remember the Murda Mamas from Murderville which I am still waiting for part 2 of that TRILOGY. I finished Cartel the same day and listened to it a second time so I could be ready for book 2 which I am purchasing TODAY!! I loved the twists and the drama. I really hope part 2 is just as intriguing. So far Ashley and JaQuavis is 2 for 2. GREAT AUTHORS!! Unpredictable storyline.

    Inner Circle depicts the life of Evelyn Lozada’s off-camera alter ego, Eve Inez. Much like The Basketball Wives, Inner Circle reveals everything athletes’ wives live through, complete with the cheating, scandal, manipulation, and gossip. And this time, nothing is being held back. None of the wives are prepared for how addictive their rich lifestyles can be, and they find themselves stooping to unimaginable levels of deception to preserve their social status.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Which character – as performed by Nicole Small – was your favorite?

    Jackie


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    I'm definitely not a fan of Evelyn Lozada from Basketball Wives. She's not someone that I would have supported given her negative attitude and ghetto personality portrayed on the show. I didn't realize that she was the author of this book or else I would not have purchased it. I must say that I'm glad that I did because the book kept my interest from the start and I completed it the same day. I'm actually looking forward to the next edition of the book. Well worth the purchase and although I'm not a fan of her as a person. I am a fan of her writing. I hope the next book is just as interesting.

    May, Christine, Heed, Junior, Vida, even L: all women obsessed by Bill Cosey. More than the wealthy owner of the famous Cosey Hotel and Resort, he shapes their yearnings for father, husband, lover, guardian, and friend, yearnings that dominate the lives of these women long after his death. Yet while he is both the void in, and the center of, their stories, he himself is driven by secret forces: a troubled past and a spellbinding woman named Celestial.

    Would you try another book from Toni Morrison and/or Toni Morrison?

    Yes


    Would you ever listen to anything by Toni Morrison again?

    Probably


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Toni Morrison?

    There are several others I'd consider


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not sure because I didn't finish it


    Any additional comments?

    Toni should probably stick to writing because I thought her narration was poorly done. I have over 60 books and she didn't bring the characters to life. I just could not get into the book.

    The heralded Queen of Hip-Hop Lit presents an addictive collection of celebrated urban authors with their fingers on the pulse of the streets. Street lit’s finest female voices - Keisha Starr, Tysha, LaKesa Cox, and Monique S. Hall - deliver searing stories about women who make hard sacrifices to stay on top of their hustle and seize the power, money, and fame they can’t live without. Enterprising and fearless, these players are more than equipped to handle whatever the street throws at them. That’s because they are hellbent on survival - by any means necessary.
