Let That Be the Reason begins when a drug dealer abandons his girlfriend, Pamela Xavier, leaving her with nothing but a stack of bills, an empty refrigerator, and an impending eviction notice. Backed into a corner and with no prospects in sight, Pamela decides to get her hustle on. Transforming herself into Carmen, she learns to deal with the streets, the playas, the drug lords - and, of course, the law - by any means necessary. In no time, she is running a call girl service, a fencing operation, and a drug cartel, all while still being a mom.
Pamela is a naïve coed from Detroit, going to classes by day and clubs by night. The hottest spot is Jazzy Jay's, and that's where one of the guys slips his gun into her pocketbook, knowing that the police who have just descended on the club won't check the girls for weapons. Pamela doesn't know his name or anything other than he's cute and charming. But when she tracks him down to return his property, she finds out his name is Chino, his game is hustling, and his plan is to make her his woman - and give her more than she ever bargained for.
Mischievous and manipulative, 18-year-old Red is an expert at deception with a provocative femininity. She employs her dirty ways - even faking a pregnancy with her boyfriend - to win a closetful of Gucci bags, a deluxe condominium full of baby accessories, a new car, and a book deal. But when one of Red's scams backfires and she winds up truly pregnant by her inmate ex-boyfriend, Bacon, she finds herself in more trouble than she's ever known.
"Dirty Ahhhhh Girl smh "
Q wished that Bacon had killed Red when he had the chance. Red knew Q's career as a hustler was over, and he was counting on starting a new legit business with the money he had made. He had once believed Red when she promised that the money didn't mean a thing and she would give it all up to be with him. Bacon returns from prison and suddenly Q is left for dead.
Red, the infamous expert of deception, is still up to no good but faces challenges to baffle even the most clever hustler. Still, Red stops at nothing to outwit her adversaries and avoid being caught by either the law or the outlaws.
"hooked like a fish"
Imagine This continues the saga of Pamela as she does jail time and has to decide who she really is: Pamela, a woman who, more than anything, loves her son and wants to be there to raise him, or Carmen, the ruthless baller, who does the crime, serves the time, and honors, at any expense, the code of the street.
