Publisher's Summary

In this explosive addition to the New York Times best-selling series, Ashley Antoinette brings you pain, pleasure, love, and hate as YaYa struggles to hold it all together before life blows up in her face in The Prada Plan 5.

Disaya finally has it all. The man she fought for is hers at last. Her name is Mrs. Indie Perkins, and their daughter is safe. Leah is gone. Life is supposed to be good. So why isn't she satisfied? Why does life suddenly seem so bitter? YaYa's Prada Plan had worked, but with the riches comes pain.

She and Indie have grown apart, and with Parker now a permanent fixture in their lives, Indie is pressured to juggle it all. But YaYa's patience is running thin. Indie is loving her wrong. Her life isn't what she wants. Her Prada Plan has changed...and now it's time to pursue a plan B in order to get what she really wants....

time to end this tale

** spoiler alert ** *SPOILERS*
Random thoughts as I listened to book 5. It’s lengthy. Sorry

Pro
• Nicole Small’s narration
• Ethic’s character crossover from Moth to a flam & his appearance in book 4. This is a standout character. And is what the character Indie should have evolved into throughout the series.
• The anticipation of the demise of Indie & YaYa’s storyline
*Z was a strong character & much like Ethic the only other likeable character
*Parker’s storyline added some flavor, as pitiful as it was
*the promise of this being the final book in this drawn out story of dysfunctional relationship and how it affects those that surround them. I will say this series a perfect reflection of that and how not to be in a relationship.
*Maybe the next book will feature the characters whose stories were actually interesting –Ethic, Z, Chase, Mia, Trina & King’s life after he was taken from Indie.

Cons
• YaYa –whiney, weak, push over the exact opposite of Z. She showed some strength with about an hour left in the book when she told Indie about himself, which of course he didn’t even acknowlede
• Indie –disrespectful, abusive, weak, lacked accountability for his actions
Yaya & Indie as a couple
•no character growth
Story lulled in places
Disconnect between how Indie & Yaya were described as opposed to how they were actual portrayed in their scenes individually and with others


Random thoughts at the 7 hour mark to the end of the book.

• Indie's character is completely ridiculous & so not what anyone would call a boss or king. He was written as anything but that type of person. Yet, he was constantly described that way. I saw no evidence of it. He discounted the fact that he slept with Parker more than once. He catered to her and just told Yaya "deal with it". It's only you, yada yada, but his actions kept saying it was Parker. His character was so disrespectful & untrustworthy. He says he’s never been the type to put his hands on a woman, but we forget book 1? And he slept with Parker more than once, but he only remembers one instance?
• I’m happy Ezra aka Ethic did not end up with Yaya.
• The love that the author(s) have for not giving any of their characters stability in the end is quite frustrating considering that “black love” or “love” in general is a positive. I would love if there was ONE couple that showcased the beauty of love period. I've read all their works and can't think of one. Granted these 2 characters would not be the couple I would choose to portray a positive relationship
• Why does Yaya not have any money left from her time hustling with Z? Where did it go?
• Storyline confusion i.e. indie kicked her (Yaya) out again. However, Yaya, Elaine & Indie re-tell it as if she left voluntarily.
• The brush off of Elaine slapping Yaya & berating her when indie put Yaya out was a mess. How can Indie beat her, cheat, disrespect & put her out, yet Yaya is portrayed as the bad guy?
• *This addition is ridiculous & with a hour left i knew another book was on the horizon. If it's with these 2 as the primary focus, I might be tapping out on this series that should have been no more than a trilogy. There was not enough storyline or movement to stretch this out to what I assume will be 6 books. Now if Yaya & Indie are killed off, I would listen to the next one.



Damn it I hate i have to know how a story ends. Book 4 was billed as the final book in the series, yet a book 5 was released & NOW a book 6….smh

Disappointed

The author forgot that it was a year later that Yaya and Indie got married so she could not have been pregnant by Ethic. Just dumb the Prada Plan could have ended at book 3. A waste of $$$

I cried and got mad so many times

I listened to all 5 books in the matter of a week. I trust that we will be getting “The Prada Plan 6” which will give the outcome of Indie’s trial and the revelation that Indie is the baby’s father because she was pregnant on their wedding day when Parker ran into the church. Y’all playing with my emotions so please don’t make us wait too long for the next book.

Favorite Author and favorite narrator!

Great combo. Ashley and her husband JaQuavis are two of my favorite authors. This book is excellent per usual. I am so glad Nicole Small was in on this one. She really brings good stories to life.
