Picking up where the suspenseful Payback with Ya Life left off, we’re plunged back into the hip-hop drama, where the men are hot and dangerous, the women know their shoes from their Choos, and they will stop at nothing to get what they want. In a game of power and intrigue where the stakes are high and the rewards are dazzling, the losers are gonna discover there’s always a price to pay.

Dang this book had so many surprise like dang I didn't even see it coming. I wonder if old boy got shot . but I know I'll find out in part 4. But dang they got Briggen good I was rooting for him and shan but oh well they said everything green on the other side is not what it seems I think something's gone happened in part 4 can't wait to listen lol.
I lover of street literature!
Ratchet.... Ratchet... Ratchet....
I've always liked Briggen. He keeps it real at all times.
I love all the books that Nicole read but this book was a little complex for just 1 reader. There are a lot of male characters and a male reader would have been helpful. It was difficult to follow along with the voices. Nicole should have listened to the previous books because the pronunciation of Shan's name changed for Shan to Shawn not acceptable for the 3rd book in the series.
Yes I listened to all 4 books in the series.
The story was cool. I've read the first 2 books and this one was just ok. It felt rushed and really didn't end well. Shan was so ditzy and I really didn't care for her towards the middle. Its so many missing pointd.
Either an additional narrator with a little more base in their voice, or a male narrator along with the female narrator Nicole Small
No, not at all
I couldn't keep up with the characters and would have to rewind to see if it was a male or female character speaking.
I did listen to the book to the end, but was disappointment for the many times I was lost as to which character was talking.
Atlanta artist and single work from home mom of 1. I love all things creative including art, writing, and music.
I'm not sure, It seems that the series that this is a part of is quite complex and the fact that the entire series is not available on audible is a negative for me. There is a barrage of characters and so much to keep up with but all in all the story comes together.
N/A I have read the actual hard backs and loved them.
Not excited about it, she is not a good enough narrator to carry characters of both sex. Her voice just did not make this story come alive enough for me. I think that with a male accompaniment she would be perfect. Her voice is sultry and very well suited for any female character. If she and Carey Height were to narrate together they would be unstoppable.
Nope. Nothing that I have not already stopped doing, dating drug dealers LMAO
This was not my favorite Wahida Clark story although it was gritty and super realistic as usual.
This anthology was an good read and the narration was superb. I was plesently surprised to see some of my fav urban street authors on Audible and hope to see more in the future. Cop yo copy today!
Yes, this book was extremely interesting and had a very good ending
Nicole was very versatile and I enjoyed her ability to switch with each character.
Never live your life by committee...
The audio version is very nice to listen to and the narrator does a very good job keeping you completely involved...
I would recommend this book to friends...
Yes I would. At first I wasn't too keen on the whole audible book thing because I like the page turning of actual books but I enjoyed listening to Payback. The storyline had me sitting on the edge of my seat listening intently. I think Nicole Small is a wonderful narrator. She also narrated a book by Zhane titled Nervous and she does a wonderful job with changing the tone for each character. It's a good book.
My favorite character was Dark, because he presence held my attention and I feared his character which means it was very well written.
I would have to say Briggin.
I couldn't have chosen a better name.
yes i would and i have. a friend gave it to me. its a good book and with anything good u pass it on.
how shan turned her back on briggins
yes lord and i have. i wish the other 2 parts were audio too.
i didnt like that shan ended up with nick. where did that come from.
