    Ghetto Luv May Be Too Ghetto

    Reesie remembers the day that she first bumped into Caelin a.k.a. Lay Lay. His fine frame and the way he automatically made her his ghetto princess was enough to sweep her off her feet. Will Reesie's landing plant her in his arms or in front of his gun? The apple doesn't fall far from the tree with Mya. Following in her mother's footsteps, Mya can be loose when it comes to men and naïve when it comes to the streets. Will her girls be able to break her family cycle or will Mya land the women in a compromising position? Libra is the finest one out the group. Her looks and ghetto demeanor attracts some of the wealthiest ballers and some of the greediest haters. She remembers to keep her friends close and her enemies closer, or is it too late? Mary L. Wilson gives you a quick and detailed read about the streets of the Lou. Whether it's hustling, getting females or laying down the steel, you do not mess with either men or women without a major problem. Having lived in St. Louis for a few years and now being back in my hometown of Chicago, it is sooo hard to believe that whether you are in 'the county,' north side or east side (the more diverse areas) that they are doing big things like going to the liquor store and just stomping females and leaving scott free or pulling out your gun and threatening another female at the bar and everyone is just like 'oh okay' and continue getting their drink on. Hey, okay, I know that everybody wants to represent their 'hood' to make it seem like it is the hardest of the hard. Getting back to the actual book, the slang was almost to the point of unbearable and ultimately got old after the fifth page. I love to hear our people talk, but come on now, eventually you have to say a word that is actually in Webster's dictionary. Mary has a great personality (I along with Ms. Toni actually met her at an R. Kelly concert in St. Louis) but Ghetto Luv didn't have any. 2.5 stars

    Literary Lovers Book Club Review

    Ghetto Luv by Mary L. Wilson The story of three best friends: Libra, Mya, and Reesie take place in the sometimes ruthless streets of St. Louis, Missouri. The reader is introduced to the everyday happenings of the three young ladies as they ride through the streets and clubs in St. Louis living the high life. Love, lies, and murder surface as the three protagonists find themselves fighting for their lives. While the plot of the story is riveting, the art of the storytelling leaves a few things to be desired. At some points the diction is so heavily based on the dialect of the area that I found it hard to comprehend. The switch of point-of-view and questionable reliable narrating also makes the storyline a bit choppy in some areas, yet the tale is told with vivid detail which makes it an easy, interesting read. Anyone looking to get a sneak peak into how three 'sistah-girls' make it on the streets would enjoy the book. I look forward to reading the second installment of the series, Still Ghetto.

    A cool read but could be better!

    This book was a good story. It gives you a look at how STL really gets down. Although the slang language was sometimes hard to keep up with or grasp. The characters were easy to grasp and connect with. The story reflects friendship, love, family, and the normal sex, lies, and betrayal! I really loved the twist in the story and how the story played out. I definitely would recommend this book to anyone!
