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.

Suspension at its best! This book was so real it literally was like watching a movie! I loved it!!!! It seemed like I was growing up right along side of Yarni! What an amazing turn of events!
Fort Worth, texas native and I love to READ!!!!
I loved it! I actually read the books out of sequence, the this one explains a lot! It is long but it was well worth the time.
The sound effects were corny and unecessaru, at times there were so loud that they distracted from the story and made it difficult to hear the narrator.
the narrator was awesome as usual but at times I struggled to keep reading it, I usually take a day to read a good book but it took me 2 days with this one. great first time read
It needs more action. The story is unrealistic and boring.
The reader wasn't very good and the book didn't keep my attention. I ended up forwarding it to the end after listening for about 4 hours.
