    This book is a MUST HAVE

    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.

    PHENOMENAL SERIES

    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!

    i

    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.

    I loved it

    You will not be disappointed in this book. Yarni was a woman of my own heart. Despite all the set backs and trials and drama, she rised to the occasion and still came out on top.

    A believable story

    This was a great story with believable characters. It was great to see Yarni stand tall, proud, and spiritual through all her turmoil. It's sad to say, but situations that arose in 'A Hustler's Wife' actually happen in our society and everyone knows it. I really enjoyed the way Yarni got back at Rallo for mistreating her. That part of the book had me laughing out loud. The only thing I did not like about this publication was the editing. It was disappointing to see all the errors in this book. If the editing had been properly handled, I would have given this one a 5 star rating. Street life is what it is and Nikki Turner did her best to express the ups and the downs.

    I enjoyed reading about the street lives of the characters in the book. It is something to think about if you have children. I think that teenagers should read this book.
