Publisher's Summary

Chyna Black thought she’d finally gotten her happily ever after. Her melanin is popping, her career has taken off like magic, and her love life is like something from a fairytale. After rekindling her love affair with Dame, he came back in her life, showed her how to move in a room full of bitches and swept her off her feet. When they met 20 years ago, she never knew the impact she’d made on his life. Because of her, Dame didn’t even know bitches. With him, she found her forever. His love was like no other. The stars in the sky were aligning perfectly. Then, within a blink of an eye, her dream became a nightmare. When the smoke clears, and the dust settles, will Chyna be able to hold on to everything she holds dear, or will she end up alone - all over again?

Gray Rose and Gunz have two kids and a home together. You would think, after 10 years together, she’d have a ring too...but Gunz still isn’t ready for marriage. Maybe it’s because he’s always fly, stays in the cockpit, and can’t stay out the streets. Gray is over trying to keep a man that doesn’t want to be kept and Gunz ain’t beat, she can jump off his d--k. All it takes is one nigga to remind her that she’s bad as f--k, and that they’re a real nigga.

After 11 years, four kids, a house, and a dog, Mo and Boss finally got married. From the outside looking in, everything seems perfect, but Mo is secretly drowning. When she looks in the mirror, she doesn’t even recognize herself anymore. She used to have that up North glow, body looking like cinnamon, but between breast-feeding, soccer practice, ballet class, keeping house, a bitchy, loud-mouth mother-in-law, and a husband who won’t keep his mama in check but constantly wants to f--k, Mo is five seconds away from putting everybody on the front porch. Can she keep it together without losing her sanity?

Chyna, Gray, and Mo are going through it, but with their girls, Meesa, Mina, and Dylan by their side, they’ll go through their trials and tribulations with love, laughter, a few tears and style every time they touch the city - stop it!

Could not put the book down

I enjoyed listening to the narrators. The narrators made the book enjoyable to listen to. The author should use them for all her books.

True Urban Ghetto Genre

The storyline was okay but I kept thinking I hope a young woman doesn’t read/listen to this story and aspire to be like it’s characters. In my opinion, men were extremely disrespectful to women, professionals or perhaps the elderly. Who actually would curse out a counselor and call her a bitch because she asks questions. What woman is aspiring to have a stranger talk disrespectfully to them on day 1? What parent guardian goes into a principals office and literally curses the principal? Who’s 6 yr old child is aspiring to be a thug and the parents are okay. It was a bit much for me. In my opinion, the story could have been so much better and points conveyed without all of that. I also got tired of listening to all the descriptions of designers and name dropping of celebrities with every function. For me, it portrayed all that a female/make should not aspire to do. Perhaps it is someone’s reality but not mine’s. Lastly, I was a bit confused because some of the characters had the same name as characters in books by Ashley Antoinnette so it confused me as to which author I was actually listening to. If you get past all of that and dig for the true storyline then at best it is an ok read. I suffered through to the end. I didn’t want to give a 1 or 2 star because there is a storyline but it is marred by other crap.

Hated this book

I had such high expectations for this book but instead this book perpetuates stereotypes & horrible tropes of Black men & women. I could only get about a third of the way through. All the men, save one, are violent, hypersexual thugs who treat each of the female protagonists horribly. The women are tough but ultimately weak in comparison to the men. I couldn't in good conscience continue this book. It's like the worst role portrayal of Black folks. The publisher should be ashamed of green-lighting this trash. I'm no prude but the focus, outside of porn, on "d!#k" and Black men's genitalia is grating. Don't get me started on the use of "ni%%a". Again, I don't know rappers or comedians who use the word as much. As a Black woman, I found the portrayals irritating & frankly lazy. What cliche wasn't used in this book?

To date, I have listened to nearly 100 performances and this was the worst so far.
