Publisher's Summary

Nationally best-selling author Mary Monroe penned the widely acclaimed novels God Don't Like Ugly and God Still Don't Like Ugly.

Red Light Wives is a sassy and scandalous novel of six women who engage in the world's oldest profession. They have something else in common too, their "manager," Clyde Brooks - a charismatic but hard man who fills many roles in each woman's life. But soon, an act of rebellion may change their relationship forever.

An ok book.

This book was ok and kept me busy listening while I do my laundry and other things I do while listening to my books, the end was a little "meh" though.

Enough is Enough

I love this author. Why is every book fixated on skin tone, eye color, hair texture, and race? Why is there a notion that light skin and long hair is perfection whereas dark skin and nappy hair is almost beastly? Where are we (collectively) going to get over this? I’m a brownish Portuguese woman with long dark hair but I’m so much more than my appearance...I have a kind heart ♥️ who cares about my appearance. Black is beautiful!

Love Mary Monroe

Def recommend. The “Hispanic” narration got on my nerves though.
Scary Mary was my girl in the God don’t like Ugly series.

Exciting

This book was a page turner! it's as if the author gave you a direct line in just more than what was stated. The growth of each character was worth the wait.

Narration is not the best

At some points in the book you can hear the narrator breathing - it is so annoying but not enough to quit to book with more than 50% done. I think it is an older audible book - I think it would be much better updated but the story is good and not over the top urban fiction.

Ok Book

Ester's voice & accent horrible. That the reason for lower ratings. The book was good except for Ester voice.
