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.

NOT SURE WHAT TO SAY

What would have made A Hustler's Wife better?

A lot of the stuff earlier in the book. However, as it was getting towards the end it just got to be ridiculous. I understand its "urban fiction" but come on the 007 mother, planting mini cams and the attorney flying in to save the day, her driving to pick up her boyfriend because he has been "pardoned" oh but wait...before I go pick up my "husband" she sees is a cracked out woman so she does a U-turn it just happens to be her former friend. And she makes arrangements for her to go to rehab (all while on her way to the prison). The friend just happens to decide to "get help" all within a few minutes in a car.

All the "hood chicks" had the same sound - and the "ballers" had the same sound. I understand there is on person narrating but come on! At least get a male to do the male parts and a female do the female parts of the narrating.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Unsure, I can't seem to find many books on audio that I am interested in. And the prices are too high so that will determine what I read next.

Which scene was your favorite?

Can't really say. Again it was all so outlandish. But I had to keep listening because I paid for it.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really - I am surprised. I was looking forward to this but was pretty much disappointed.

Any additional comments?

Not much can be done about the contents of the books, as they are already written. But at least lower the price because this book was semi-garbage. That's just my opinion,
