Publisher's Summary

Long live the Queen of Hip Hop Lit!

Nikki Turner is back with another explosive sequel to her number one best-selling novels A Hustler’s Wife and Forever a Hustler’s Wife.

Yarni Taylor is a successful corporate attorney who wants nothing more than for her husband, Des, to renounce his hustlin’ ways and commit to his life as a pastor - especially after someone tries to kill him. But Des isn’t ready to abandon his old habits just yet. He has to find out who is behind the murder attempt, and he wonders if the brazen robbery that took place during one of his church services is related in any way. 

But before he or Yarni can regain their footing, a young woman shows up on their doorstep - Desember Day, the 18-year-old daughter Des never knew he had. And, unfortunately, she takes after her father, so trouble isn’t far behind. 

With their lives on the line, Yarni must sacrifice everything and take it out of the office and back to the streets to save her husband and her family from their checkered but intricately connected pasts.

Liked it but could have been so much more

I have been wanting to get this book for about 6 months now and I'm kinda disappointed that i used a credit for it. Bahni Turpin has such an amazing voice and I simply love how much she brings the characters to life. I think that i expected more drama than what I really got. The daughter coming out of the wood works after 18 years added something to the book but I guess I was expecting more like maybe having a baby with another chick while the hustler/preacherman was married I guess I'm so use to books with infidelity I was expecting the wife to have been heartbroken because she found out that her man was cheating and had a baby in the process. Desember was a bad lil chick true hustler mentality like father like daughter but i do like how the author focused on the aspect of family. Family may disappoint ya sometimes but at the end of the day the ones who know the true meaning of loyalty will never disappoint and will always have your back.

I enjoyed it

Nikki ended the book weirdly to me, I'm guessing there is another book on the way? lots of loose ends but I enjoyed the series, some parts were a but confusing but I'd recommend the series.

It's a great book

It's a great book, I think there should be a book 4 so we can know what will be the outcome of the betrayal as well as what will happen to Yarni and Des. How will the children carry on there life.

Heartbreak Hotel

I didn’t think that this book would follow the storyline from the OHs but became very surprised by what I encountered. This is a great alley ooop to something super!!

Missing links

Story had many missing links. it doesn't seem complete. My least favorite of the 3 books. Is there a 4th? Wanna know what happens to her mom, Des, Bambi, and the detective
