Publisher's Summary

Nikki Turner's debut novel is a smorgasbord of manipulation, street life, greed, betrayal, envy, money, power, and revenge.

Yarni, a sweet and innocent girl from a well-to-do family, by chance meets Richmond's notorious drug kingpin, Des. The spark between them immediately blossoms into an astronomical love, which separates Yarni from her family and friends. Butwhen Des is sentenced to life in prison, Yarni will learn that being a hustler's wife isn't all that easy with her sole provider behind bars.

Nikki Turner takes listeners along for the ride as Yarni struggles to survive. At times she plays the game, at other times the game plays her. It is a journey filled with laughter and tears, failures and triumphs.

Yawnie. Extraordinary Young Lady. Very smart girl

At a very young age she got caught up, he pretend marriage, when she was with a man she with them, but the girl could flip the switch whenever she wanted. She was a gold digger and the girl had nine lives. Must listen to the end, so I dont know how it ends, but I have strong feeling. Tawnie got her man, the job and the life she fought for a true hustlers wife. By any means necessary. This one of those books you never get tired of listening too whatever you don't listen while driving. I ended up parking at McDonald's purchasing me a sandwich eating and listen.

Kandi Sweetness

This book was everything! I tried to guess ahead to try and figure out what was going to happen next but it was nonstop enjoyment. I enjoyed everything about this story, I had to understand Dez's attraction to Yarney knowing the big age difference, but I was a million times more appreciative as to how respectful he was to not just her feelings but as well as to her mother's feelings also and for that he had my heart from the beginning. The narrator was amazing never once lost my attention.

I would love to hear how they grew together, how her mother and Sam made it through with her new upscale dining, how Joyce found love, how Yarney became the high power lawyer she worked so hard to become and take down the higher power individuals from the tapes her mom recorded, how Dez new found freedom made him even stronger than ever, how Kara got clean and put God as the head of her life, about kids and much much more that could have unraveled.

Thank you Nikki Turner
