Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of Donald Goines and Iceberg Slim comes A Pimp’s Life, the story of the rise and fall of Mack Jones. He’s at the top of his pimp game in Queens, New York, until he breaks one of the cardinal rules of Pimping 101 and falls in love with one of his girls. 

Destiny was once an innocent young girl tricked into selling her body, but now she’s as tough as the most seasoned professionals on the street. Then a tragic turn of events causes her to open her heart once again. When Mack is shot, she stays by his side during his recovery, proving herself to be as devoted as any wife would be to her husband. 

After she sees that Mack has regained his strength, Destiny finally gathers the courage to leave the life behind her, and Mack is forced to make a decision. He won’t stop her from leaving, but he must decide if he will follow her out of the game. Will he stay with what he’s always known, or take a chance on love? And even if he does choose to get out, will the streets let him go that easy?

I CANNOT!!

I can't get past the narrator...I just can't! trying to give this back. I usually love Treasure Hernandez, but the narration killed it for me-sorry!

Awful narration

I am REALY struggling to make it to the end of this book. The narrator sounds like he just woke up and started reading or is about to fall asleep while narrating. I do like some of the characters but again, the narration is making it hard for me to connect and stay interested in what is going on in the story. I've been listening for 4 days. I can usually complete one of T. H.'s books in a day or 2 so I am a bit disappointed. I will continue to support this author but I probably will not finish this book.

Terrible Narration!

Narration was terrible but the story line was OK that's why I suffered to the end. It's to the point where I won't even listen to a book if this person is the narrator. It sounds like he's whining when he reads!

Quick, Fast, Entertaining!!

This was a good story that got me through my day at work! Easy to follow along, very entertaining and a bunch of bright characters!! The ending had me wishing it was more to hear! Some ppl don’t like the narrator but I think it was ok, it wasn’t unbearable.

Narrator

I don’t know who keeps letting this guy narrates but he’s horrible , sounds like a 4th grader jumbling words together. Glad it was free it’s the worse on here

not quite as pimp as it should be

story could of been better. many books you see that aren't included in basic Can be found thru your local library audio books.
so don't get premium when you already have access thru libraries for free.
