Publisher's Summary

The high priestess of the hood, Nikki Turner, is back with the novel fans have been feenin' for: the sequel to her #1 best-selling novel, A Hustler's Wife.

Des, Virginia's slickest gangsta, is about to become a dad when he is charged with the murder of his own attorney. But with Yarni, his gorgeous wife (and a brilliant lawyer), now calling the shots, Des isn't going back to the slammer without a fierce fight. Even with the heat on, Des manages to take his game to the next level and finds a new hustle, one that will allow him to possess the three things all major players desire: money, power, and respect. He becomes a preacher. Reluctantly, Yarni stands by her man as he trades in his triple beam scale for a Bible and a Bentley and makes his Church of the Good Life Ministry a welcoming place for all sinners to step up to the altar.

But when Des's nephew is killed in the high-stakes heroin trade and Des learns that someone close to him okayed the hit, the dyed-in-the-wool gangsta sets aside the Bible for the gospel of the streets - even if it means risking the one person who's always had his back.

Bam! I want more

Would you consider the audio edition of Forever a Hustler's Wife to be better than the print version?

I didn't read the print. I loved the narrater's voice she really made it believable and easy to follow. She made you want more

What was one of the most memorable moments of Forever a Hustler's Wife?

When the little Dezi came up missing or when they guy attempted to rape her. I was so mad I wanted his killing the be long and slow.

Which character – as performed by Bahni Turpin – was your favorite?

I cant say because I was feeling them all

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Wifey making it do what it do at all times
