Publisher's Summary

Imagine coming home to find a farewell note, an empty refrigerator, a disconnect notice from the electric company, and an eviction letter giving you 30 days to vacate the premises - all without a job to fall back on. Well, that's what happened to Africa Evans, a shy, insecure woman without a backup plan. From one bad choice to another, Africa leans on love as an escape from her dilemma. But for this girl from da hood, tough love may prove detrimental to her well-being.

Harmony isn't the person everybody thinks she is, and she damn sure ain't the person she wants to be. Leading the double life of good girl/wannabe bad girl, she hooks up with Nikko, the son of a notorious hustler and hood legend. He introduces her to a whole other side of the game. As if living a double life wasn't hard enough, Harmony now finds herself living a triple life - a life she never thought wanting to be a girl from da hood would bring.

Unique's conniving mind hasn't changed a bit since the old days in the hood. Scheming is something that comes naturally to her. All her life she has been molded into the worst kind of woman: a straight-up hood rat who has no dignity when it comes to a dollar. She'll do anything she can to get what she wants. Unique isn't working for squat. If it is true that hard work builds character, then she is one no-character-having bitch. Why should she, as a pretty as she is? She believes that a man will take care of her, and if he doesn't, then she will just take it by any means necessary.

Narrator

I’ve listened to another book read by Honey Jones. I believe for now, I’m going to stay away from books that are narrated by Honey Jones.

narration is key with audio books

It's the narrator...the pronunciation of one of the characters names changed from part 1 to this volume and threw me off. I started looking for issues, which I found. Pauses in strange places. Just not a believable narration. The story itself..well it didn't take a rocket scientist figure out the plots but I knew that going in.

Blah

This was EXTREMELY painful to listen to. The narrators voice was so irritating. The three stories were lazily tied together. The first story was meh. The second story was just OKAY. It was creative in exposing certain things but once they were revealed I had to go back and re listen which was annoying. The third story was just okay as well. Nothing to write home about.

It was ok

Not too fond of the first story. The character was a hot mess and Idk if there is anyone as stupid as her. The narrator was a little flat, made the ok stories sound worse than they wereZ

Pretty good story.

I always love to hear honey Jones nearby. She does a great job. The storylines are good enough, Kind of predictable. However I will continue to read the Rest of these books.
