The queen of the street lit genre, De’nesha Diamond pens tales about the toughest ride-or-die chicks ever to roam the streets of the Dirty South. In Street Divas, four powerful women vie for total control of the Memphis hood, and they aren’t about to let past loyalties get in their way. While Lucifer is hitting the streets to get her revenge for a deadly shooting, Essence is hitting the sheets - with her best friend’s man. And Yolanda knows her path to power lies with her baby’s hustler father, but Queen G Leshelle is dead set on keeping this game all to herself.

Very enjoyable and easy listen. Well developed characters but some of the traits assigned to them are more than a bit of a stretch. Prepare yourselves for an onslaught of anal sex, the author has facination with it though it adds nothing to the plot.
the best of the street
i thought i actually knew the charcters
yes all of them i have heard before
cutting out the baby all the events were graphic
Wish they had kept the original narrator from the first book, Hustlin' Divas. She made the characters more realistic. The change threw me off. It took me about 5 or 6 chapters to adjust. The story is still exciting and the book leaves you wanting more. I already got the next one.
Gripping and Reviting!! Excellent listen, very engaging story. All readers were excellent performers. Highly recommend to anyone who likes a street drama.
Say something about yourself!
Women running S*&!
When LeShelle got what was long overdue from her sister La'Shara.
I think they should have had the same narrator for this one that did Hustlin' Divas. I think her name was Honey something. I really liked her and her sound effects. These narrators had none. They just read the words. I felt like I didn't know any of these characters because of the different narrators.
Not really I just felt bad about Essence.
There were a few inconsistency like when Yolanda said that she didn't know Baby's real name until she went to the funeral in Hustlin Divas and then turn around in this one and say when she was meeting with her children say that she named her 3 year old daughter after her. Then Momma Peaches says that she can't go and see her husband in jail because she's on parole but then when she needs to ask him a question about him being Mason's dad she all of a sudden can get in and see him.
But all and all I loved the story.
The audio version is the best, you get to feel the emotions of the characters. The book leaves you in suspense and on the edge of your seat. I can't wait to hear more.
I liked the way the narrator knew how to sound like different people when multiple.characters are talking.
