Publisher's Summary

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.

Wahida Clark, born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey, began writing fiction while incarcerated. Her first two novels appeared on the Essence best sellers list, and Every Thug Needs a Lady made the New York Times best sellers list.

    Story
    "one confusing series"




    Pros

    Got me thru the work day

    Dark

    Nicole Small



    Cons

    Rough transitions between scenes

    Lacked character development

    Story lacked clarity which led to an ending that didn’t make sense

    Characters drama and treachery almost became too confusing to keep up with

    Series didn’t make sense to me







    Characters or character observations that stood out

    Shanae- confused, naïve, weak unlikeable, unbelievable character.

    Her level of being completely of unaware was hard to believe.

    The “bosses” (Janae, Briggen, Nick) did not come across that way

    That Shan is rude and disrespectful with no types of loyalty. I can't wait to see what's next.

    "Awesome book BUT....."
    If you could sum up Payback Ain’t Enough in three words, what would they be?

    Ratchet.... Ratchet... Ratchet....


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I've always liked Briggen. He keeps it real at all times.


    What about Nicole Small’s performance did you like?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I listened to all 4 books in the series.

    "It was ok"

    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.

    Story
    "Too many male characters with one female narrator"
    What would have made Payback Ain’t Enough better?

    Either an additional narrator with a little more base in their voice, or a male narrator along with the female narrator Nicole Small


    Has Payback Ain’t Enough turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, not at all


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I couldn't keep up with the characters and would have to rewind to see if it was a male or female character speaking.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Meh!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    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.


    If you’ve listened to books by Wahida Clark before, how does this one compare?

    N/A I have read the actual hard backs and loved them.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Nicole Small’s performances?

    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.


    Did Payback Ain’t Enough inspire you to do anything?

    Nope. Nothing that I have not already stopped doing, dating drug dealers LMAO


    Any additional comments?

    This was not my favorite Wahida Clark story although it was gritty and super realistic as usual.
