Publisher's Summary

From Vickie Stringer, the "queen of urban fiction" (Publishers Weekly), comes a scorching tale of love, lies, loss, and the indomitable spirit of a woman scorned. 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.

The drama truly unravels when Red's picture-perfect cons fall apart due to - surprisingly - the power of love.

I mean...

The story was pretty good. But the news reporter narrating through me off. She made it hard to get through it. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series, I just hope they choose a different narrator.

Dirty Ahhhhh Girl smh

Spoilers Alert!!! ALERT!

To be honest!

Red, is the type of female that you can't trust, I get and feel why Bacon wants to kill Red, could you blame him? But Q being in the middle is not good at all smh. I really like Q foreal, he a good dude. And him being in between Bacon and Red crap will get him hurt. I can't wait to get part 2 and also part 3, I finally gotten around to actually getting this book since I've been wanting to read this in like forever, at first I didn't want to finish this book but after a couple of chapters I'm like this book is actually good, I gotta finish it. Glad I did.

P.S.
Bruh, "that mother ***** pee on me" lmao now that had me weak. Lord! I knew Q wasn't going to leave Red. Smh, I feel like he's too good of a man for her like seriously. Leave that girl alone Q dang! Like Bell Devoe said "she's so fly, she'll drive you right out of your mind, steal your heart when you're blind, beware she's scheme she'll make you think you're dreaming, that girl is POISON!" and that is what Raven aka RED definitely is smh. And what makes it even worse his friend Zeek tap that and I cannot help but sing poison, like Bell Devoe said "me and the crew used to do her". Yeah, Q and his boy defiantly did her humph.

P.S.S
One sad thing about this book was when Red got kicked in her stomach and lost her baby that mess even hurt me and when Terri tried to steal her ex and Kira baby smh, I felt so bad for that baby, anything dealing with kids hurt my heart.

Not quite what i expected

The story line was a little hard to follow. Usually I'm able to listen to these books straight through but I kept turning this one off and on and I lost interest halfway through. The story line develops way too slow so its hard to tell what the point and plot is. IDK guys, I say save your credit but if you're a fan of the Author, take your chances.

Great Book!

I loved this book. The story was very interesting. I cpuldnt wait to start the next book in this series. The narrator seemed a little robotic with the narration, but the character voices were distinct and each had a different tone which was pleasurable. I also enjoyed how the accents were true to the setting of Detroit.
