I'm not going to sugar coat this review. The book made no sense whatsoever. First of all, the chances of a 15 year old girl captivating the mind of a seasoned hustler is not believable. Then he meets her mother to ask her for permission to date her in full hustle gear, with a hustle mobile parked on the curb... I think not. Granted, the book is fictionally characterized, but the writer seems to try to base the theme on the realities of "the game." Not even close. It was the fairy tale version of ...more

I read Forever a Hustler's Wife around X-mas time. I read it in two days, but I wasn't impressed with FAHW compared to Hustler's Wife. I think because everything was new in Hustlers Wife is what made it exciting. Don't get me wrong now FAHW will having you hanging on the edge of your seats, but only in certain situations. It has a slow start to me and didnt' really start getting intersting until the middle of the book. Out of Five Stars I give FAHW 3 1/2. Another note is you have to read Glamour ...more

I likeed this sequel to A Hustler's Wife by Nikki Turner. I'd be lying if I said it was as fast paced as the first but it didn't bore me and I was interested. I loved the twist with Desi and Khadijah towards the end- I never saw that coming at all, even with the few sporadic clues thrown in that something was up with her. I really got into the characters of Des and Yarni from the very beginning so I'm sure that's why I sailed through the sequel so fast. The book was obviously left open for a thi ...more

I am giving this book 4.5 stars, it was a page turner from beginning to end. I must say that Yarni loved her husband Des and would do anything to show her support and love. It was fully of drama, but I loved how Yarni being a professional lawyer stood her ground as a sista married to a big time King Pin she knew when to be professional and when to keep it real. I really enjoy Nikki's writing style even though she had a lot of characters she made it flow and easy to read. I am looking for somethi ...more

This book is entertaining at its worst. Des character is not to bright to keep running around being the hit man and still have to hustle the streets for money. And Yarni is not much of a good Attorney when she continues to surround herself with the street mentality. Like I said this book is entertaining listening to how everyone's life is jacked. There is no one person within this book who had a positive purpose in life that would help someone turn there life around. The first book was more real ...more

I love Nikki Turner books, your storyline is always about some gansta romance drama, and I like the style she uses. Des, is a typical gansta, wanting the same thing most ganstas want. Money respect etc. He is the ideal example of how a man tries to get out of the hood and is faced with battles that pulled right back.

This book is part two of 'A Hustlers Wife'. So far I am enjoying it a lot. Its a continuing story of a unlikely couple, and the drama they continue to face. Drama brought upon by unloyal workers, sheisty business partners, and bitter people. This couple is fighting to keep their relationship strong and together through it all. I'm hoping they can pull through.

Second installment of the Hustler series. Yarni and Des face more challenges of the street life, but make adjustments to become legit. Yarni is now an attorney and Des starts a church (wow). With so much death and destruction around them, they both tire of the game and make changes to live right. But you can't do dirt and not expect your past to catch up with you...

This was a good had am interesting plot that I couldn't figure out as it unfolded (very rate for me).
The characters were believable as well. Based on the ending, I think there will be more to come.

This book was better than the first one I think, but neither one of them were all of that to me some parts were really good and others I was about ready to skip past it but it was ok

After Nikki Turner read The Coldest Winter Ever by Sistah Souljah she was dismayed that there weren't other books like it. "I wanted to write the kinds of books I wanted to read," said the bestselling author, whose 2002 debut novel, A Hustler's Wife, would go on to sell more than a few 100,000 copies.
While Nikki Turner's first two novels were published by a small publishing house in the Midwest, i
