Publisher's Summary

Nikki Turner's debut novel is a smorgasbord of manipulation, street life, greed, betrayal, envy, money, power, and revenge.

Yarni, a sweet and innocent girl from a well-to-do family, by chance meets Richmond's notorious drug kingpin, Des. The spark between them immediately blossoms into an astronomical love, which separates Yarni from her family and friends. Butwhen Des is sentenced to life in prison, Yarni will learn that being a hustler's wife isn't all that easy with her sole provider behind bars.

Nikki Turner takes listeners along for the ride as Yarni struggles to survive. At times she plays the game, at other times the game plays her. It is a journey filled with laughter and tears, failures and triumphs.

Started off well... then....

This one started off with great potential... but the last few hrs of listening tailed off. Nicole Small did great as usual. But the story line got pretty boring with no action or anything unexpected. Don’t think I’ll be going on to book 2. Not a bad listen, but nothing I’d highly recommend.

Intriguing Story

Good story line. Recommended to anyone who has experienced loss and hard knocks in life along with poor choices. It makes you fantasize of the lavish life.
