Publisher's Summary

Nikki Turner, Queen of Hip-Hop Lit, is back with one of her gutsiest female characters yet, a glamorous chick with a high-end hustle that can rival any man's game.

As the respected, renowned concierge for a luxury hotel chain, Beijing Lee caters to the wealthy and famous. Whether it's securing a dinner reservation, a fleet of limos, or a record deal, or protecting her clients from the paparazzi, there's nothing Beijing can't do. She's stacked up an impressive pile of IOUs from the world's elite, and one day she decides it's time to start cashing in. Before long, she's a five-star diva running her own lucrative business, where she secures her clients their most outrageous and increasingly illegal desires.

But Beijing has her own addiction: a man named Lootchee, who lavishes her with even more diamonds and luxury than she already has. But behind Lootchee's charm and over-the-top romantic gestures is a selfish, high-stakes hustler who lures Beijing into a dangerous web that takes even this seasoned enterpriser by surpise, and breaks her heart in the process.

Once the ball finally drops, it'll take a ghost from Beijing's past to rescue her - not only from those who are out to seriously harm her, but from herself.

Now Ms. Nikki, girl....

I have been rolling with Nikki Turner since Tales From da Hood and Black Widow. She lost me a little bit with the "Unique" series but it was while reading novels like hers that I became familiar with other authors in this genre, such as Kiki Swinson, Wahida Clark, Ashley and Jaquavis, and many others.
Now, I haven't read a novel by this author in quite a while but I enjoy the street style when I want to be entertained. It seems that Nikki Turner's writing style has become "watered down" if you will. I didn't expect the ratchetness that I know I'm going to get with Wahida Clark or Ca$h but I did expect a little more hood antics. It was okay enough I guess, and one of my very favorite narrators (Bahni Turpin) made it a lot easier for me to make it to the end.
I won't give it a terrible rating because I will always respect Nikki Turner's talent as an author. This one just didn't do it for me
