Publisher's Summary

Number-one Essence best-selling author Shannon Holmes returns with the explosive sequel to his national best seller, Bad Girlz.Tonya Morris, aka "Tender", is back, and this time the ride is wilder than ever.

Good girls go to heaven. Bad girls go everywhere else.

Coming of age in the Badlands of north Philadelphia - one of the toughest and poorest communities in the country - Tonya Morris has had to make some desperate and, at times, ruthless moves in her bid to survive. When she stepped into the unforgiving business of stripping, she found herself caught up in a world of sex-filled nights, dirty money, backstabbing cohorts, and murder.

She left that world behind to become a hairstylist. However, after she is blacklisted from salons across Philadelphia and evicted by her shady landlord, Tonya finds herself back in the stripping business, except this time she promises herself things are going to end differently.

Tonya teams up with her best friend, Na'eema, to organize underground sex parties, and it's not long before they have a team of beautiful girls and are rubbing elbows with athletes, rappers, and celebrities.

Then Tonya's ex-lover and now music industry superstar, Q, steps onto the scene, and everything takes a dramatic new twist. Because it's not just Q who is back in her life. His murderous baby mama, Niecey, is fresh out of jail and ready to raise hell, and she's got Tonya in her sights. In the meantime Tonya's past has risen like a beast, threatening to tear away all her newfound success. But Tonya isn't going down without a fight.

Not as good as book one but worth the read

I had to finish the story from part 1 so listened to the whole book. Overall I don’t think it was as good as part one but I enjoyed it. The best friend was everything! I loved her character. Revisiting the conflict with her mother was important. Her feelings were justified and it goes to show having the opportunity and urgency it’s always enough. Forgiveness takes time so don’t waste it.

Good sequel

After reading the first book I was in much need to see whar happened with everyone.. It left me satisfied but now I want more closure with the characters.. It was real stories about hate, jealousy, envy and rising above

Good

This was a refreshing read. I love how the author gives background to every single character, no matter how small their role is. And not only background, but every character is given a story, which I really appreciate. The only thing I would say is that some stories seemed incomplete, like the sister for instance, I would have liked to hear more about what happened to her and where she ended up.

Of course, Nicole Small is a stellar narrator and as such made it that much more enjoyable to listen.

I would recommend this book 100% it is an emotional one, had me in tears at some point, but most importantly, it’s a tale of hope, love, friendship, family and possibilities.
