Publisher's Summary

Essence® best-selling authors Kiki Swinson and De’nesha Diamond are two rising stars in the world of urban fiction. Heist presents two novellas starring young women hustling their way to the top of the game through daring robbery schemes. In Swinson’s The Ultimate Heist, pampered Shannon Marshall is accustomed to a big-money lifestyle. Her world is shattered, however, when her man is thrown into prison for gun running. Now he’s hatching a plan from jail, and Shannon’s going to have to put her neck on the line if she wants her life of luxury back. Diamond’s Robyn Banks follows DEA Agent Jordan Hayes, a young woman determined to never lead a life of crime like her father. But her conviction is tested when her dad’s gangster crony Keston Bishop begins work on an elaborate robbery, and Jordan becomes intoxicated by the danger and power he radiates.

Heist was the Ultimate Experience!

Both stories featured in this novel were superb and the authors delivered in the style that readers who loved their novels are accustomed to. This was a really good and enjoyable read. A 5* read!

Good read

I like the narrators. I hope the second book is just as good or more exciting.

This is two separate stories put in one book.

The first book was okay, just two short. Seems like it was rush to get to the end and certain things were just forced.

The second two was a bit better, but somewhat unrealistic. At times I found myself getting lost in the narratives. I expected more from each stories.

Listening to this book made my 3rd shift a breeze.

I didn't want the story to end, I was so lost in it that I hadn't realized I was done working for the night.

Don't Waste Your Time or Money

I didn't realize that these were two books disguised as one. The first book was just ok but the second book was TERRIBLE. Each book is about 2 or so hours. Total waste of my time and money. Very disappointing!!!

Short and Sweet got it done

I really enjoyed these two stories. Resolve, left no wondering, although there could be a sequel to each of them. Good Job!

Anything but her

Would you be willing to try another one of Beresford Bennett and Celeste Graham ’s performances?

No

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Heist?

How she got back with the guy who set her husband up

Not What I Expected

After reading reviews on Kiki Swinson I was looking forward to her story but was very disapointed. I felt the plot was not realistic. What man would ask his woman to put her life in danger over a chancy heist? And why didn't he put the clues together sooner that there was an insider? And all the twists at the end seemed over the top to me.
I enjoyed the book by De'nesha Diamond much more. It felt more realistic and I didn't find myself zoning out during this book. It's not my favorite story of hers but it was the better of the two.
Overall, I don't know that I would reccomend this book to a friend.
