Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Two novellas from Clark and Swinson prove to be inaccessible to anyone not already familiar with street lit and will likely disappoint fans of the genre. In Clark's "Enemy in My Bed," Memphis weed dealer Kreesha is in love with Reign, even though he's locked up and married to someone else. When he gets out of prison, she sets him up with a dealing business. When he gets busted, he turns on Kreesha and her crew, but Kreesha doesn't plan on going down easy. Swinson's "Keeping My Enemies Close" follows Larissa Taylor, who smuggles drugs into prison for her boyfriend, Sean "Supreme" Miller. She gets caught, and a pregnant Larissa eventually gives custody of her son to her friend Tenisha. Turns out, though, that Tenisha set her up, and now Tenisha has Larissa's son and man. When Larissa gets out of prison, there's a bloody payback. Unfortunately, the dialect is heavy, the language coarse and the characters little more than vehicles for playing out revenge fantasies.

Meet the Author

Wahida Clark was born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey. She decided to write fiction while incarcerated at a women's federal prison camp in Lexington, Kentucky. Crowned the "Queen of Thug Love Fiction" by Nikki Turner, the "Queen of Hip Hop Fiction" herself, Wahida's style of writing is the template for urban literature. When you read her novels, they are so real you are convinced of one of three things: you know the characters, you want to know the characters, or you are one of the characters. Her bestselling novels include Thug Matrimony, Every Thug Needs a Lady, Thugs and the Women Who Love Them and Payback is a Mutha, all published by Kensington/Dafina Books.

Kiki Swinson was born and raised in Portsmouth, Virginia. She discovered her flair for writing twelve years ago after completing her first novel, Mad Shambles, while serving a five-year sentence at a federal prison. After being released in December 1996, Kiki later went on to self-publish Mad Shambles. Her passion for writing didn't stop there. Writing feverishly into the wee hours of the night, she completed her second novel, Wifey, which was published by Melodrama Publishing. After the success of Wifey, Kiki penned the sequels I'm Still Wifey and Life After Wifey, as well as The Candy Shop and A Sticky Situation.

This Story Turned Out Just As A Predicated As I Continue To Read The First Few Chapters... Talk About Women That Call Themselves "Your Friend". The Ending Was Right On Point Both Of Them, Tanisha & Pretty Boy Supreme Both Deserve What They Got.

Without Giving The Story Away They Were Both Grimey.. "Enemy In My Bed Was Off The Hook Too... Dont Sleep On This Book Both Stories Are Well Worth The Paper It Was Written On...& Then Some

i really, really, really HATED THIS BOOK!!! both stories, how can you take two strong women and turn them to mush of a MAN? not just any man but a jail bird at that. i have all of wahida clark books and loved all of them but this one. and i'm so glad i didn't buy this one. and kiki swinson, this is the first story i've read by her and if the is all she got them it will be my last. both stories where weak, boring,predicitable. :(

I hated this book. I think it was very poorly put together. On a good note though Kiki Swinson's story was decent, first I read of her. The book overall though was poorly put together and poorly edited. Seemed like it had no good direction. I am now about to read Wifey by Kiki Swinson and I really hope it leaves a better impression of the author.

I usually really like Wahida Clark and her writing style but in this book it was just horrible.Enemy in my bed was a story about two very weak women who let a man make fools out of them.The structure of the story was all over the place and she went out of her way to make the wife look bad and his mistress look good.The main characters stupidity is never ending in this story even when she found out she had been betrayed her dumb *&^ did nothing to help her situation any many parts of the story where unrealistic and silly. I AM VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS STORY.
