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 thought it was going to be really ghetto but theres actually true love in the story which captured all my attention. Love Profit!!! i couldnt put the book down! i cant wait until the next book comes out next june. i swear i want to read all her books now.
I Love, Love, Love this book!!! Mama Peaches is my favorite character!! This book had me feeling all kinds of emotions, i couldnt stop listening!!
This was a pretty good book. I am looking forward to more from this author as well as part 2. I'll listen to this one again.
Books like this are excelent for those who know nothing about this type of life. I oversee a youth group but I know I have not experienced some of the things the kids have. This book allowed me to get into their minds after some of the things they may have been through. A great read for those who condem people before they know their story. The task to try and turn around the mind set of these "Divas" would break counselours in half.
From the title I expected strong powerful women but all I got was drug addicts, who abandoned their kids at the drop of a hat and chased behind the worst of men. Rape, physical and verbal abuse. It's just not my kind of entertainment.
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I was hooked from the very beginning. While some of the scenes were graphic and a little more edgy that I like I enjoyed the book and look forward to listening to the next book in the series. You definitely won't be wasting a credit on this book.
More than Expected
The end of the book.
This was an excellent performance. They were able to keep the characters seperate and make the book seem very real.
All of them.
I listen to the snippet of this book more than 5 times before deciding on it. After reading the reviews for a 2nd time i said what the heck. When it started i thought it would be a bit immature with no great story line. I WAS WRONG. The book actually has a story that is one that you want to continue to hear more of. I really really enjoyed the book after all. Everyone in the book had a story and it was great. If you like urban reads then you would most. def. enjoy this one. And i read alot.
fantastic, wonderful, entertaining
There was nothing that I didn't like about the story.
The different voices, enthusiatic voice, and sound effects.
All characters where memorable. Each one caught and kept my attention. I felt myself wanting to know what was going to happen next for that character.
This was a wonderful. I can't put into words how engulfed I was in each member. I can't wait until the second part
omg i love this book i just cant wait tell this summer i cnt stop going over and over of chapters in my head just knowing that the next one is going to mbe just as good but i have this deep feeling that its going to be much better cnt wait and keep up the good work june hurry n come lol
This book was off the chain GOOOOOOD!! I've scrolled past this book, and all of them in the series actually, so many times because I really didn't think I'd get into it. Well shame on me for judging a book by its cover (pun intended lol.) I started this book Monday to get me through my work day and I finished it today and after listening to the sneak peak of book 2 I can't even wait the week til my credits kick in to get it....I'm about to cop it right now!
Oh and Honey Jones, sista gurl you DID DAT with the narration! You couldn't tell me that wasn't a full cast of individual characters the way you perfectly switched it up and made everyone from LaShelle(sp) to YoYo to Fat Ace to Baby Thug come to life!
Well done De'Nesha Diamond! I am now a fan!
