This is the first installment of a fierce new series by the co-author of Desperate Hoodwives, featuring an intimate look at the scandalous life of a wifey who uses her sex appeal and street smarts to make it big.
In the hood, every day is about struggle and survival, and no one understands that daily grind more than 22-year-old Kaeyla “Goldie” Dennis. She’s been the “wifey” of an older, wealthy man since she was 15, but the discovery of their longtime affair by his real wife brings to a crushing end her hood-fabulous lifestyle in their low-rise project in Newark.
After trying every hustle she can think of to make money, including selling knockoff clothing and bootleg DVDs, Goldie gets an irresistible offer from a sexy strip-club owner. She becomes the club’s biggest act and takes her show on the road, running her own strip club on the weekends in her apartment. But Goldie’s love of money causes her to make decisions that bring on enemies, and the ultimate test comes when she’s gang-raped, beaten, and almost killed. When an offer for her silence is made, will she choose money over self-respect?

“A gritty new urban series with a down and dirty intensity.” (Publishers Weekly)
I actually read this one second, and the second book first. It really shows the downfalls of being a wifey and not a wife. I liked the way it links to second book and gives you both main characters side of the story being told. You must read both. Honey Jones narrates and I love her.
This book had my ears open and my mind wondering about whats gonna happen next. Alot of people will be able to relate to the main character, I'm sure of it. Because everybody got a story to tell.
Friends of the author! There is no way this book was all that! Trust me this book is one that you can pass on and you wont miss a thing. Also the narrators voice was beyond irritating.
Trust me stay awayyyy from this boring book!
I can't bring myself to even complete listening to this book. I don't know what was worse the person reading the book or the cocky attitude of the main character. What a waste of money.
A REAL HOOD STORY THAT YOUNG WOMEN EXPERIENCE EVERYDAY IN THERE LIVES LOVE THE NARRATER SHE MADE IT INTERESTING 2 LISTEN.
