I Didn't Drink the Kool-Aid,

I don't even know where to begin with this review. I won't bother with a recap because those that have followed the Thug series already know the players and what it is. "Justify My Thug" picks up where the last book left off. To say that I was disappointed, insulted or stupefied wouldn't begin to express how I felt while I was flipping the pages of this book. I don't know who any of these characters are but they are not the same as the series started out with and that
Being that I have read the whole series and I really couldn't wait for this one to come out,I was very disappointed. The story was nothing like i ever imagined it would be like, it felt like i found myself reading it just to know what happened with the characters but not enjoying it like i did with all of the other books. I felt like this book was rushed and a real let down to anyone who was anticipating this book for as long as we waited, the story was just a on going drawn out series of events ...more

Tasha and Trae fell off their damn rockers in this one. After reading this series almost back to back I can say this book is definitely a little different from the rest as far as the characters go. Damn near everyone is cheating, murdering and getting knocked up and not with each other... whoa! Of course this is not the series end, because nothing was resolved and we were left hanging once again!

As I stated before these are sooo NOT the Trae' and Tasha that we fell in LOVE with in Wahida's previous novels.....Eventhough this one was different from the other's in the Thug series, I still couldn't help turning the pages to see what would happen next.....with that being said I can't wait to see what Trae, Kaylin, Kendrick, Faheem and Rick will do next and what will the WOMEN who LOVE them Tasha, Trina, Jaz and Angel do when it comes to the THUGS in their lives....but like Tasha said if we ...more
There were alot of unanswered questions in this book. I feel the ending was a let down, so I know there has to be yet ANOTHER sequel to this series. After waiting so long for answers, only to be left with even more unanswered questions was somewhat bogus to me. And OMG how much more drama is Trae and Tasha going to go through? So much abuse was really over the top. BUT I will say this, " If this series would end with the next novel, I THINK I would read it, otherwise I'd just prefer to draw my o ...more
Man I loved this book I read it within hours, it kept me on edge the entire time. I've grown to really love and hate these characters, I loved how Kaylin is still the voice of reason and attentive to his wife Angel. Words can not explain how feel about Marvin man I was disappointed, Faheem and Jaz I'm still on edge about them I know that they have history and I've read about some of it but there's more lying there with those two we'll see in the next one I guess, and finally Trae and Tasha Mackl ...more
can not wait for this book to come out. I really hope Tray has gotten his stuff together. To go from worshiping the ground Tasha walks on to treating her like crap did not sit well with me.
i must say this book was on point! a lot of people say trae was wrong for sleeping with that charli lee but tasha went overboard. sleeping with someone who ur mayne sees as family is off limits. but trae beatin up on tasha like dat was overboard too. but he got her mind right. anda situation between faheem jaz and oni was shockin too. i couldnt believe he threw jaz on da streets like dat. i never saw dat comin. but i was really blown away when kyra was still alive. i really thought she was dead. ...more

this book was good. cant wait till the nexts one. tasha and trae need to get back doing the family thing i hate too see them having problems.Faheem and Jaz WOWW Wahida had shocked me with them.. how could faheem put her out the house. and how could he sleep around on jaz with that SKANK Oni. i think that marvin had got what he deserved but i didnt like that trae had killed him. hopefully Kyra can find the missing pieces she is looking for to get back to her child .

I had a cousin who was into the streets all his life but when he had his 1st son he tried to leave the streets alone. Only it wasnt that easy because the people from his past was never far behind. After trying to leave his past behind he ran into some enemies that still had a problem with him and didnt care that he was trying not to get involved with everything. The tension evenyaully lead to an altercation and now he is taken from his son and is facing 8 years in jail. All because he wanted to ...more

Wow, wow, wow! This novel went there and back several times over! The dishonor, the murders, the lies, the deceit, its all wrapped up in this novel! I really enjoyed this one and I think Trae has most definitely lost his mind! Talking about a roller coaster of emotions, wow! I am not a fan of violence, all the sex and murder but this novel is real. I am reading about things I know happens and I can just picture what's going on as its happening. Wahida Clark is no joke she gives it to you raw and ...more

I HATED THIS BOOK…i was completely disappointed in this book, none of the characters where the same, they were either negative as hell or being hoes. I know the characters have to grow and change but this is just to much change, wahida is the bomb and i love her writing so much but she super fell off with this. So miss clark if your reading any of these reviews, i just have one request pleaseeeeeee bring back the characters that we know and love. Especially tre and tasha and please don't go mis ...more
This was by far the worst book of the series I found my self reading it just to end the series I had feel in love with them and by the end of this book I was ready to justify my thug and kill them all off I would just like to say I would like money back for just that one book the other books mainly the stretching book I would gladly party double man I was so hurt by whatTosha and I felt that Tosha wa a big let down but look how she got with Trae she pieced to be ahood rat

OMG! This book was off the chain Wahida Clark you did a great job. I never wanted to put the book down. Now I am wondering if there is another one telling what happen after trae killed kyron. Please anyone let me know if there is a book after this one that tells what happen after this book. I loved this book and Every Thug Needs a Lady to. Big props to wahida clark she did her thang.
i just red this book. i knew it was another one coming out. how thug lovin ended. I have read the entire series by wahida clark she is an amazing aruther . if you havent read them yet then you need to read them they are really good
I give this book a 4.5. THis was a great read and some questions I had have been answered. Trey is out of control but I can't blame him much. There were some unexpected things that happenned. Great Book!

I think this was the best of the Thug series and thats saying a lot because I have always loved Every thug needs a lady as the best..but I can not wait for the next one..KUDOS to Wahida
I can't wait for the next book. There were too many loose ends not tied up for there not to be another book.
I was upset by the way it just ended i hope theres going to be another one..cause i love these books
this is really a good i cant wait for the next book well i hope their another book

All i have to say is Damn!... Trae has lost his ever loving mind

Justify My Thug, is the 5th installment of the Thug series. I have been following them since day 1, and while it is very hard for an author to provide us with a follow-up banger, Wahida Clark was able to do so 5 times.

I had the pleasure of seeing the 1st four chapters of Justify My Thug, prior to the books release, but that didn't stop me from anxiously reading the rest once the book arrived. I even went back to re-read the entire series because I was just so open for the book!

I can admit the

This was actually the first book I read by this author and I was addicted with me some Trey! With that said everything about this was trifling! Tasha and Trey's mess, even though he started it she should've held it down like a real woman and walked away if it was that deep. Kyron, Kyron, Kyron! This boy is a straight ass hole! He didn't care about anyone or about what they were trying to build. He was just like most fools that get out and still want to go back to the time they had before they we ...more

Wahida Clark was born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey. She decided to start writing fiction while incarcerated at a women's federal camp in Lexington, KY. Her style is street, raw, and she has an imagination that's in overdrive. When you read her novels they are so real you are convinced of one of three things: that you are inside the book, you know the characters, or you just have to meet them. ...more
