I do not know how this book got in my mailbox but I am thankful for getting it because this book was good from start to finish. I read this book in one day. It's very interesting. It's almost like watching a movie because I actually pictured the characters and the things that were happening throughout the story. I always talk about this story among my friends. I highly recommend this book.

I was given a copy of this book not too long ago and decided to pick it up. And what a treat!! It maintained my interest from the open page to the end. What a testimony of how strong can be!

Nikki Turners entire collection of urban novels isn't easy to praise because its extremely hard to find the right words to describe such exceptionable stories. A Hustlers Wife is a wonderful read, keeps u turning pages and wanting to know what happens next. I truly did not want this book to end and the only comfort I had was that there is a part 2(Heartbreak of a Hustlers Wife) and a part 3(Forever a Hustlers Wife)! Multiple times throughout this book I found myself relating to the main character Yarni, and relating my husband to Des(Yarni's man). I could actually picture them in my head, and I truly root for them through the entire story!

Friends can change your life rather you know it or not. Yarni, for example she is from a well off family and ends up with Richmonds dope boy. But even the best drug dealer get caught up sometimes when he is sent to jail to do life in prison. When the roles changed she tried her luck at the game something winning and sometimes losing but she had to pick up her surviver skills somewhere since her provider was gone facing life. Throughout the whole story its going to keep you on your toes and pay close attention or you might miss something. This is real life and you may beable to relate to this story.

What a great read. I'm all for love and a love that can withstand all the ups and downs that Yarni and Des went through will always win in my book. This was definitely a page turner and the drama was to a whole nother level but Nikki Turner did an amazing job showing the gracious personality of Yarni and her amazing relationship with the Lord. He saw her through all of her problems and delivered her a better person. It is also refreshing to read a store with a happy ending, even though this is just the beginning. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a great urban fiction novel!

I loved this so much. The only thing I didn't like was the constant bible verses, it was annoying for me.
