I like the twist of the story. This book is a must read book for couples that are struggling in terms of love, sex depravity and dealing with their own ways of selfish desires.

I'm not sure how I found Wifey, some books just seem to appear in my life. This was one of them.

The prose is hypnotic; somehow innate and visual. The story draws you into the very real and quickly frightening marriage of a young couple, much like the young couple themselves are drawn in. Only once we're deeply involved do we begin to know what we should have known, and consider what should have been considered. While reading the second half of the novella I was truly scared.

Los Angeles, CA. Rodney (25), proposed/married P.V. (22, West Indian, daughter, Bourgie, aka Wifey).
She came from Miami, Fl.
Much later, Nani (P.V.’ s maternal grandmother) came to check on her.

A gritty read about hidden domestic abuse. My only problems are:

The brevity - 150 pages
Real problems with the dialogue which may well be authentic but makes reading very hard. i did not know there were that many apostrophes - I hate to think what a spell checker was seeing.
The lengthy verbal abuse scenes are I think overdone and become repetitive.

In the end this promised more than it delivered.
