Publishers Weekly

Back in the hood but movin' on up, Tasha and Trae Macklin have reformed somewhat but are still in urban grit mode. In Clark's latest street lit, her fourth novel in the Thug series, the couple's moved to L.A. although Trae briefly returns to the East Coast for some revenge killing after his cousin Shaheem's murdered. Three years later, Tasha has three children and it's all good except Trace opens up a flashy nightspot, Club New York. To do this, he makes a connection with Charles Li, a Chinese mobster, and his dangerous daughter, Charli. Then Sabeerah, a devious young witness to Trae's New Jersey crime, moves to L.A. and tries to blackmail Trae. In another plot line Det. Rick Bryant, the couple's neighbor, gets involved with Kyra, Tasha's old friend, whose hubby, Marvin, is using drugs. Clark, who started her writing career while incarcerated, depicts Tasha's travails and Kyra's problems with a brutally honest squint, but it's hard to care about extra thuggy Trae. (Aug.)

I have waited for this book for along time and when I finally had a chance to purchase and read it then toss it in the collection. I was highly upset it was 100% north of what I was expecting and for that i hope she can write one more in the thug series and correct this mistake. Do not get me wrong read it for your enjoyment but as a fan who has read all of her books more than 20 times each I was so pumped and let down. I kept picturing her killing trae or kaylin and that was 280 degrees of what happened. I will try to read it again but I do know I still will be disappointed...Hey my personal opinion...

I've read a few of Wahida Clark's books, and liked them. I read this after "Thugs and the women that love them" so I have some background, but I will say this. This book is so over the top and unbelievable I didn't know what to think. Some of the mistakes these "thugs" make actually made me laugh, even I'm smarter than that! I generally like the authors style, but I had to ask myself, what is the point if everyone is gonna do the same things, in or out of the game? Can we get some progress? All this shows me is that thugs really can be dumb in or out of the game!

This by far has been the best series I've read in a long time! Great job Mrs Wahida Clark!But I will say I was upset about the ending.The way Tasha & Trae had to end like that. I loved Tasha & Trae I also loved Kaylin & Angel. Why did Kyra have to die though? And what was the point of having Trae and Trish (the best couple) to break up? to me they were the best besides Angela and Kaylin!

I was a huge fan of the "Thug Series" presented by Wahida Clark. I eagerly awaited the release of this book and was HUGELY disappointed. Every character that she built in the previous 3 books lost their dimension. The plot was stereotypical and simple minded... to say the least. The back cover of the book gave more information than the actual book. The love that Tasha and Trae built was tainted by unnecessary affairs and drama that was beneath the depth of their characters. I am a general fan of cliff hangers, but this book ended weird. Its like the author was running out of time and just put together an end within 3 pages. A complete JOKE Seriously!!!! At the end of the day I believe that the love of Tasha and Trae should have endured and not given way to the everyday stereotypical lust that looms married couples. SO UNHAPPY. If she does write a new book I hope it begins with this one being a nightmare.
