Get Money,

While window shopping, she meets Dyme, an older entrepreneur, who takes the time to upgrade and mold Kaeyla aka Goldie into mistress material.

After six years of promises, Goldie finds herself on the outs

Before the reading- Looking at the cover, I thought the main character was going to be the type of person who knows how to survive out in the streets. She know when and how to make her money.

During the reading- As Im reading the book, I notice that situations in the book does occur. It's about a woman name Goldie that has been raised in "the hood". She is a bi-racial child and lots of females has hated on her. She hated her life because lots of females talked about her because she was lite skinn

I give Meesha Mink 4 stars for this novel because, while it was an average tale, Mink manages to relay a complete story, something most urban writers fail to do. However, I found it quite vulgar and the scenes weren't necessary. Mink's characters were somewhat developed, and I'm happy the main female character wasn't completely unlikeable, which happens in typical urban novels. It was a quick, easy and entertaining read. If you're bored or feeling depressed, then pick this one up - it's bound to ...more

This book was real good. It was a fast read. You know how some books are fake and u know that stuff like that in the book doesn't happen in real life. This book was real. I love how Mink kept it real. And I loved the ending. Five stars Mink.

Not what I expected and recommended only to a urban lit fan because it's not enough to keep this avid reader engaged.

She Fancy, Huh

Born with no spoon in her mouth, Kaeyla ‘Goldie’ Denise didn’t take much time considering her options when she was approached by Dyme, an older, married businessman looking to take care of her. At sixteen, Goldie traded in her run-down sneaks for name brand heels. Nails done. Hair done. Everything did. That is until everything came to a screeching halt. With no one to depend on but herself, Goldie gets on her grind. It’s grind or starve.

Infinite Ink Unlimited Ink, Meesha Mink penned this book well. Real Wifeys On The Grind is a five star page turner that you will not want to put down. Meesha takes you on a shotgun ride thru the life of Goldie. She had her up and downs and a few bumps in the road but, life must go on "Brand-new hustle...but the same old gind" This is a must read,must recommend and must review. Real Wifeys

I picked this one up out of curiousity because normally I wouldn't read this genre. To my surprise I really enjoyed it. It was low down, dirty, gritty, sexy, and dramatic! This chick was all about the dollar bill and NOTHING was going to stand in her way of getting it.
Serena
This book had me gripped from beginning until end. I wanted to hate Goldie but it was hard to not hurt for her. The only thing I didn't like was the ending but if it means a sequel then I'm good! Not sure who did the proofreading but some parts were jacked up lol.

I really enjoyed the first installment to this series, even though I read the second one first. Goldie is the typical hood chick and this is the typical urban book. I liked it, but I am starting to feel like when you have read one of these, you have read them all.

We loved this book because they were so many different scenarios that led to an interesting book discussion over drinks and appetizers. We all moved between feeling sorry for Goldie and waiting for her downfall as payback for the some of the things she got away with.

I was some what on the fence about the title because of the word (wifey) , but I soon learned it's nothing like the wifey series I was use to reading. I loved this book form the first chapter to the last. Can't wait to see what this author puts out next!

Meesha Mink aka Nyobia Bryant told a great story. She was able to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time. I've read her work before, but it wasn't this good. She made this street lit draw on some deep emotion and it also taught some hard lessons.

This book is very interesting and I cant wait to finish it.
I am done with this book and it was very good. Goldie goes on one to get the money she desire's. I don't think part two is out yet but cant wait to see what happens next.

Definitely a page turner. At times, you can't help but want to be Goldy, or envy her.
