Although the name Ashley Antoinette may not ring a quick bell for some, if you throw JaQuavis in the mix, you will understand that the two have made up some of the best street lit fiction to hit the shelves. With The Prada Plan we welcome Ashley’s solo debut.

At the tender age of 6 Disaya, better known as Yaya handily learns the quality of couture and the importance of having a plan in life, a Prada Plan. Disaster strikes Yaya’s world when both parents are eliminated, and is suddenly forced to f
This book is VERY well written. I have to admit that I am a little shocked and pleasantly surprised that Ashley Antoinette did so well without JaQuavis Coleman. I am so proud of her. You go girl! Haha. This book is definitely FIVE STARS. The only complaints I have about this book is that there are a few inconsistencies that contradict each other in the first half of the book and also that the book is a little slow in some places. She was VERY detailed and really stretched this book out which I c ...more
Really good book, I listened on audio and it really pulled me in! I was rooting for YaYa the whole way through and praying for Leah's demise. Leah showed she was a cold hearted, unfeeling, deceitful person over an over again. I just can't imagine all that evilness stemmed from obsession and rejection. I definitely have to pick up part 2 and see what more havoc Leah can wreak and how things play out with YaYa and Indy. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good urban lit book with st ...more

Although YaYa parents lifestyle was not the best I'm sure it would've turned out better then not having them in her life. YaYa and Mona endured so much pain and abuse which caused a spiral of downfalls throughout their life. Everyone desires a chance to make their wrongs , right .
Yaya's moment came in Vegas when Indie gave her the courage to change for the better she should've left the game at that very moment. Leah is scorned and possessive , what happened in Leah's life to cause her to be so

"Life can sure throw you some curves"

This is the story of Disaya Morgan. A little girl born into a life that most would not choose, one that was forever altered when a jealous lover murders her mother and sends the only father she's ever known to prison. Disaya ends up in the foster care system where she meets Mona another little girl who's life has been altered due to circumstances beyond her control and they form a bond. As the saying goes sometimes drastic times call for drastic measures. The

Wow...I'm glad iDidn't read this book when it first came out because iWoulda been too pissed if iHad to wait on the Part 2. The book was great! Filled with drama on pretty much every page. iHave a few suggestion for the actual medical things that goes on in the book, but that could be because iWork in that field. Overall, great book!

I just finished this book and I was like damn! This book kept me entertained and I couldn't stop turning the pages. Disaya had her priorities out of walk as a child because her mother was a prostitute her daddy was a pimp, she met Mona at a foster home and they were sexy ally abused by the foster mothers son. They finally ran away and became prostitutes for elite, Mona contracted aids, Disaya met Indie and fell in love. She wanted to turn her life around but Leah was a crazy bitch. She framed Di ...more
I read this book from start to finish in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put it down. If you aren't hop to Ashley & Jaquavis, what are you waiting for? Ashley did her thing with her first solo novel. I can't wait for The Prada Plan 2

WOW is all I can say Leah that bitch is crazy I can 't wait to read part two.... The prada plan is a must read
Louise Payne
I LOVED this book, page after page of greatness.
YaYa and Indie, the definition of ride or die! Bonnie and Clyde but they have a problem named Leah. That's all I'll say without giving away too many details. This book has so many ups and downs. You'll ride the roller coaster of emotion and you'll want YaYa to win so bad! At the same time you'll appreciate Indie for his patience, understanding and unconditional love for YaYa. I could go on and on but honestly it'll be easier for me to encourage you to pick up a copy of this drama filled and perf ...more

Okay- here goes. I'm extremely dissappointed in this book, Ashley's writing, the plot, the characters, pretty much everything included in this debut. Of course this is the first book in a series- that was a must given the ser
This is kind of a complicated book to review. There's some history here. 'The Prada Plan' was a short story by Ashley and JaQuavis which was featured in the compilation 'Girls From Da Hood 4'. It ended on a cliffhanger, so this novel is the rest of the story, written entirely by Ashley Antoinette.

HOWEVER, the entire middle section of the book is a copy-paste of the short story from Girls From Da Hood 4. So there's 50 pages about Disaya's upbringing, then the copy-pasted chunk, then 100 pages of

This was my first time venturing into the street-lit genre. Well, venturing my way to the last page. This book is a real page turner. YaYa and Mona were thick as thieves. I was rooting for the both of them. The connections between the characters were well executed, and I already knew Bill wasn't about to open his mouth. I have to admit, Indie ain't all that to me. He's not exactly a college graduate, but he holds himself to such a high standard. He wasn't making his money in an any more legit wa ...more

Disaya Morgan was a pretty green eye girl that alot of people love and have. Dynasty was her mother and known prostuite her pimp was Slim that all the hoes loved.

I just finished reading The Prada Plan by Ashley Antoinette. The Prada Plan is a good book to read. This book is about Disaya's story. I like the concept and vibe for this book.

Leah is a something else. She is crazy and jealousy. She needs to go to rehab or something. Disaya needs to be careful who she is dealing with. I felt bad what's happening to Mona. Disaya has been through in her life.

Ashley Antoinette did a good job for this book. She is a good writers and author. She is never disappoint

This book was great... I learned about high class prostitution, how to start a drug empire, anal... you know all the stuff I"ll never want to experience in real life. It was exciting and I can't wait to read the second book. I have to know what happens to Indie and Yaya's baby. Be forewarned though it starts out absolutely disgusting I was ready to put it down but thankfully I kept reading because it got better.

Book 1 in the Prada series. Disaya Morgan, daughter of a pimp and his prostitute, always remembered the few last words that her mom told her and that was to have a Prada Plan (thanks to her love of wearing her mom's prada shoes). Disaya's plan didn't go so well and she is doing everything in her power to get back on track.

I am looking for part 2
After reading The Prada Plan i was total shock it was definitely a page turner that i could not get my head YaYa was just a hood girl trying too make fast money. I hate that such a pretty girl such as her got trapped into being a prostitute but meeting Indie was the best thing that could have happened to her. I hate that Leah got in the way of what good thing they had and Indie just up and walked out of Yaya's life without even letting her explain. Leah has completely gone insane, she really nee ...more
after getting pass all the "what up ma" not a bad story...ashley get the story moving and ended with a cliffy....i guess i will check out part 2 to find out how someone will get their comeuppance.

“The Prada Plan” tells the story of Disaya Morgan. Disaya’s world is turned upside down at an early age with the loss of her parents. Thrust into foster care, her life becomes a living hell until she is able to escape. But has she traded one hell for another?
Ashley did her thing! She kept the characters in the fold of things and there were plenty of spins. The cities changed and the mood of the book switched to “gangsta” in a matter of a few flipped pages.

Love love love. If you have the need for a twist and romance. Ashley Antoinette gives me everything plus some. #Bigfan
