    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.

    I actually read this one second, and the second book first. It really shows the downfalls of being a wifey and not a wife. I liked the way it links to second book and gives you both main characters side of the story being told. You must read both. Honey Jones narrates and I love her.

    In South Memphis, four women live in high-stakes, high-risk territory. Ta’Shara has no interest in following her sister into the street game, but when she falls in love with the brother of a rival, her own sister orders a severe punishment.

    Story

    It was a good follow up to part one. It finishes where part one leaves you dangling in suspense. The only thing I didn't like was the switch in the narrator. They did present an entire cast of readers for this book, which made the characters a little easier to follow. Drama filled.

    The queen of the street lit genre, De’nesha Diamond pens tales about the toughest ride-or-die chicks ever to roam the streets of the Dirty South. In Street Divas, four powerful women vie for total control of the Memphis hood, and they aren’t about to let past loyalties get in their way. While Lucifer is hitting the streets to get her revenge for a deadly shooting, Essence is hitting the sheets - with her best friend’s man. And Yolanda knows her path to power lies with her baby’s hustler father, but Queen G Leshelle is dead set on keeping this game all to herself.

    Andra says: "The drama never stopped!"
    "Wow, these are some ruthless chicks!"

    Story

    This story gives you a rough and raw tale of women who choose to get in the gang life and try to dominate as strongly as the men. It will make you smile, make you feel sad, and mad throughout this book. Very good story and narrated by my fave,Honey Jones. She really gets into the characters and really shows off with the character Mama Peaches.

    The coauthor of Desperate Hoodwives, Meesha Mink set out on her own with the street-fiction hit Real Wifeys: On the Grind. The series’ second installment, Get Money, finds Harriet “Luscious” Jordan in serious need of scratch after her hubby Make$ is put behind bars. A natural-born hustler, Luscious jumps into the party-promotion biz and begins pulling in big-time cash. But she can’t let go of a grudge against her old rival Goldie, and it may be her undoing.

    Story

    I had a hard time getting this book to play correctly. After several attempts from Audible, I was able to listen to it. When it first began , I was like this sounds corny already, but then I got hooked. It was one of those ghetto tales that has you waiting for the next scene. I immediately bought the second book.. I am now a big fan of the narrator Honey Jones.

    With Samad’s target on her back, Liberty must survive the harsh streets alone. But when a chance encounter pushes her into the arms of a new friend, Po, the two take on the California kingpin - and step full force into the game. As bullets and sparks fly, the unlikely pair embarks on a serendipitous journey back to where it all started: Sierra Leone. With a new overseas connection, Po sees an opportunity that is too good to pass up. When his pursuit of the American dream conflicts with Liberty’s past, will they be able to survive, or will the drug empire that they’ve built together come crashing down?

    Story

    It was an excellent follow up to the beginning of this tragic tale. Cary Hite really brings the characters to life, it's not often I find a male narrator who can carry both genders in a book. Excellent. Can't wait for the next one.
