Overview

In the sequel to one of Wahida's most successful titles [Payback is a Mutha], old scores are settled and before long, new tensions arise.

Still recovering from the suicide of her best friend, Shan now pregnant by a married man is forced to make major decisions in her life. Ready to leave the fast life behind, Shan believes a move to Detroit will help her become a stronger woman-but someone wants revenge against Shan's brother and is willing to destroy Shan in the process.

Torn over his love for his sister and his desire to get back on top of the drug game, Shan's brother, Peanut knows the danger of the streets. Old beefs become new scores and before long, a turf war is raging. With the stakes as high as they've ever been, only a few people will be left standing-and Shan is determined to be one of them.

When you read her novels they are so real you are convinced of one of three things: that you are inside the book, you know the characters, or you just have to meet them. Wahida now lives in East Orange, New Jersey. Her first novel, Thugs And The Women Who Love Them and the sequel, Every Thug Needs A Lady appeared on the Essence Best Sellers List.

I thought the book one 'Payback Is A Mutha' was good, but this one right here was so darn good that I couldn't wait to share it with my reading partner. I didn't want her to miss a beat so I gave her the 1st book to re-read while I was reading Payback With Ya Life.

Payback With Ya Life is written with very strong, distinct voices. This is the sequel to Wahida Clark¿s Payback. Shan is facing turmoil in her life. Pregnant by a married man and a distraught by a friend¿s suicide, Shan would like to escape the confusion of her life. A person from her past convinces her not to leave town. What she does not know places her in danger. Clark leads her fans through twists and turns. She captures their attention and holds it to the very last page.

Pregnant by a married man and having lost her best friend to suicide, Shan doesn't know if she's coming or going. With the support of her brother, Peanut, and a new man in her life, things are looking up. What goes up must come down. Old scores have a way of rejuvenating themselves. Someone wants payback in the worse way. PAYBACK WITH YA LIFE was a bit of a slow read compared to its predecessor, Payback Is A Mutha. At times it was hard to get a good grasp of the characters because they weren't really fleshed out in this book. Curious as to know how things would turn out, PAYBACK WITH YA LIFE held my attention but this was definitely not a page turner, which is what I'm used to with Wahida Clark's books. The elements that characterized her early material (drama, thug loving, good character development and great dialogue) aren't evident here. I know Wahida is with a new publishing company, which I'm sure was a good move for her, but I'm wondering if they had too much say in this story.

This book is okay. I just don't like the fact that there are too many paybacks. But overall I enjoyed the book.

Another great book by Wahida. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. It wasn't as grimey as Payback is a Mutha, but was definitely full of action!
