Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Wahida Clark is all too familiar with the truths of ghetto life. The first novel in her gritty series takes listeners into the streets, where a wrong choice could be the last choice a person ever makes. In a hood loaded with sex, brutality, and crime, three friends are at a turning point. They can surrender to the streets - and the murderous men who rule there - or walk a totally different path. But nothing is simple for women addicted to life on the edge. And everything has consequences.... Angel, Jaz, and Kyra are all leading double lives, torn between working hard to leave the ghetto behind and being dragged back in by the lying, pimping, drug-dealing men they can't seem to let go. From jealous rampages to bloody turf wars to rage-fueled vendettas, a tangled web of violence binds these women to the very place that could destroy them....

Great Book.!!!!!

I loved this story line. could relate to some of the situations. Could of had a few different voices. One for the men and one for the females. But overall it was great. Also it teaches you what really goes on in the streets.

Good storyline

The storyline is good, but the narrator is terrible. I feel like I wasted my credits on this series.

Robotic tone, dumb chicks, and loser men

This book is unrealistic and dumb. The stories are not interesting at all...unless you are mindless. The narrator is horrible. It sounds like he read one sentence at a time. I just got annoyed after two hours of wasted life and stopped. I am definitely getting a refund. I tried to entertain this author but my migraine told me to stop.

I love these characters. These ladies are no joke and neither are their men. The story was well written and I can't wait to read the next book.
