Publisher's Summary

Girls from around the way think they've seen it all and know it all. What they don't know will surprise them and change their lives forever. Take a look at the lives of some street-smart women who'll learn what living the fast-paced life can mean in the end if you're not careful.

What if you were raised to be a hooker and, worst of all, your father was your pimp? In "Keepin' It in the Family", this isn't just a nightmare for the Collins daughters, this is reality. Raised without the guidance of their mother, Diamond, Essence, and Chanel were forced onto the streets at a very young age. They were expected to make that money by any means necessary or face the wrath of their daddy, Dallas Collins. Can the girls band together to free themselves from Dallas?

In "Pound Cake", we bring you to Coney Island, where four friends deal with daily life in one of the deadliest parts of the borough. Pound Cake, a beautiful yet fiery 19-year-old, is the leader of the pack. People in the streets know not to mess with Pound Cake or her home-girls. So when a local hustler named Winter impregnates and then abuses Minnie, the youngest in the group, Pound Cake won't stand for it. She is going to find a way to make him pay.

"So Seductive" introduces you to the world of Cinnamon and Simone. Best friends since childhood, they are every man's fantasy, and they know it. They love to play with men and get whatever they want from them. But when one of their night's escapades turns violent, will the girls change, or will they fall prey to the unforgiving Brooklyn streets?

Sounds like ER! Not GA!

Good read but maybe a different narrator. I stopped listening mid book, Nigga is said quite a few times but sometimes it sound like ER. I couldn’t stop hearing it.

2 Good stories and 1 bad

The stories "Keepin It in the Family" and "Pound Cake" was really good and had me all in my feelings. My heart went out to the ladies in these stories. I actually cried for Mini.
"So Seductive" I couldn't get into and I probably won't finish it. While listening I was still thinking of the story "Pound Cake" I just listened to. "So Seductive shouldn't have been included with the other 2 stories.

The good and the bad

All of the stories were great except the last one. I can’t imagine anyone making that many bad decisions.
