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.
LeShelle didn’t get where she is by being nice. When a drug mule tries to take her spot next to her man, Python, she pulls the hustle of a lifetime.
Yolanda is ambitious but not too smart. A lucky break lands her in Python’s bed and makes her an enemy of LeShelle.
Melanie is a police detective, but she helps Python skirt the law to line her pockets. When she starts catching feelings, everything goes to hell, and her shiny badge can’t help her now.

I really enjoyed this book. The only reason I didnt rate 5 stars is because I dislike a book that leaves you hanging in the end! But this book held my attention the whole way through!! Im a repeat listener.
I would definitely suggest checking this audiobook out! It was very entertaining and made you want to sit in your car just a little bit longer to see what was going to happen next. The characters were very interesting and it wasn't too predictable. Overall, a very good listen!
The first thing you should know is that this book is the most profane thing that has ever touched my ears and I have kind of a potty mouth myself.
Second of all - if you really want to understand gang life and all that shooting and pimping and violence this book will take you there in vivid detail.
Yes there is true love but in the world of gang warfare true love apparently takes you down a really rocky path. What is much more common is domination, submission and the misguided notion that if you are banging the biggest, baddest guy in the gang you win - no matter how else he spends his time.
I'm glad I listened to and it gave me some insight (but no compassion) and I was fully engaged but it hurt my heart to think that people live this way and die this way. I'm really hoping it was more fictitious than expository.
This is a must listen too. The dynamic characters were full of flavor.....the plot was full of suspense....and every chapter kept my interest. This book had everything from true love...violence...to deceit. Can't wait to read more from De'nesha Diamond!
Say something about yourself!
The author done well with writing this book it captures you from the beginning the narrator is very great bringing you into the characters. This is a must listen audio.
I didn't listen to entire book. I could not get into story. Performance was ok, but not for me.
I didn't like it. Not my cup of tea.
Every single chapter was disturbing. Very graphic sexual scenes.
Very graphic sexual scenes.
Story line...I'm still in search of it. I listened to the end, but based on this, I don't think I will entertain another book by this author. I usually listen at work wiiiiiiith headphones, but felt embarrassed when someone would come by the office.
It's not bad if this is your thing, but I will not recommend based on getting judged by the content. Nothing classy.
