Overview

Hot on the heels of Real Wifeys: On the Grind comes the second installment in bestselling author Meesha Mink’s racy new series featuring more of her critically acclaimed trademarks—drama, scandal, sex, and street-smart sassiness.

Following the breakout success of The Hoodwives Series, cowritten with De’nesha Diamond, Real Wifeys was a snappy, sexy page-turner that introduced readers to Goldie, a misguided young woman who becomes a modern-day madame. Get Money brings us Luscious Jordan, a minor character in Real Wifeys, who now takes center stage and whose strong will and ruthlessness surpass even Goldie’s.

Goldie’s former business partner, rapper Make $, is serving hard time in prison for her brutal rape. His former wifey, Harriett “Luscious” Jordan, finds herself out in the cold as his family and friends close ranks to protect his money. A first-rate hustler, Luscious builds a successful business as a party promoter. Yet the force that truly drives her is a blind ambition to destroy Goldie, who had stolen Make $ from her.

Now Luscious is tormented by her blazing desire for payback: how far can she go in her bitter quest for revenge without destroying herself too?

In this powerful cautionary tale about the dangers of hatred and vengeance, fans of street literature will get a bold dose of Mink’s authentic urban voice in a hood tale that reads with breathless passion.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Mink’s brisk combination of insult, profanity, and pop culture is what street lit is all about… Another powerful story of women orbiting the hip-hop world. . . . Luscious is both a villain and a heroine whom readers will embrace. Order in anticipation of high demand.” —Library Journal

“A gritty new urban series with a down and dirty intensity that’s heartbreaking.” —Publishers Weekly

“Unforgettable, shocking, and filled with sassiness. Bravo!” —Cydney Rax, author of Brothers and Wives

“A never-a-dull moment, real life ride. Strap on your seatbelt. Meesha Mink goes sexy and deep!” —Pynk, bestselling author of Sixty-Nine

“Unexpected storylines. . . . very realistic. . . . a quick read with an engaging main character.” —Huffington Post

This book was just ok. The first book of the series was much better. The revenge plot was weak and story dragged,. Some funny dialogue here and there. I won't read part 3. NO where near the quality of the series with Denesha Diamond...

In the sample there is 147 pages but they keep repeating the first part of the story to make up for alot of the 157 pages. This disappointed me.

The book was okay. I liked that we got to see luscious side of things but it left me with so many questions from the first book. I think it would have been better if the book flipped back and fourth between goldie and luscious.
