Publisher's Summary

With a drug addict mother and a drug lord father, Aphtan learns how to fend for herself at an early age. Being the princess of an empire has its perks - until her father gets arrested. From stealing clothes and food to committing fraud, Aphtan does what she has to do to take care of her mother and herself. But when her schemes prove problematic, she turns to a new hustle: dancing at Pearl Tongue, the most notorious strip club in Texas.

For Aphtan, the job's fast money means security. Addicted to the cash, she promises herself she'll never stop - until her new man, Scooter, makes her. In love, Aphtan trades in the pole for the life of a housewife. But nothing lasts forever and Scooter's past ultimately catches up with them - bringing secrets to the surface that destroy their relationship.

Devastated, Aphtan needs a shoulder to cry on - and it belongs to Scooter's brother, Cole. Now, between betrayal, lies, murder, and a robbery that may force her to leave town for good, Aphtan's heart - and her life - is on the line.

Worst book I’ve ever encountered on Audible

I’m not sure what was more terrible; the story or the narrator. This book was pointless. The author tried entirely too hard to make things descriptive and it actually sounded redundant. Things moved too fast. I’m just disgusted and I wouldn’t even waste my time to write this review but I had to let y’all know it’s not worth it. The narrators voice is annoying and she doesn’t use inflection properly I just can’t. Throw away the whole book. Trash.trash. Garbargé

A little boring

The book didn’t grab you with the main characters. The mom, dad & daughter died to quickly. Not sure what the book wanted you to get out of it.

Pretty Good

This was a pretty good listen. It kept my attention and I was able to follow the storyline. Wish it had a better ending though but I still liked it. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Aphtan

I really enjoyed this book. The beginning to middle was great. The end was a little confusing. I wished a different ending for aphtan. I also would like to know we're was her fathers woman like we're did she disappear to? Also what happened to sultan and her little boy. Well hope there is a part two. I would recommend this book.
