More About the Author

National Bestseller author De'nesha Diamond burst onto the scene as the co-author of the gritty Desperate Hoodwives tales. The Essence magazine recommended series has taken the street-lit game by storm and paved a brand new path for the edgy Memphis native. Understanding that there is a fine line between glorifying thug life and telling it like it is, De'nesha Diamond spins cautionary tales inspired by personal experience and the heartbreaking stories that make our nightly news. In the end, she aims to deliver hope, even if sometimes there are no rides in the golden sunset. Visit De'nesha online at www.deneshadiamond.com

Customer Reviews

The stories are fast-paced, filled with action, and naughty characters.
Cydney Rax
I recommend Heartbreaker to readers who enjoy good short stories that are entertaining, easy to read, and want urban fiction reads in small doses.

More ghetto lust than `Flavor of Love's' New York, more hardcore than Tiger Woods on Viagra, and more street than a cardboard box in Bed-Stuy. This is a very hot piece of work from three different authors, only one of whom I have read. I plan to remedy that right after this review. Each one of these stories has a solid mix of street, sex, grime, and grit. I would even go so far as to call these "street espressos". They may be short but they punch you like a drunk Mike Tyson.

My favorite was `Put `Em in Their Place' because 1. It's freaking good! And 2. Because Erick throws TWO huge, HUGE twists in here that leave you with your mouth hanging open like that kid from `Home Alone'. Cha is a chick you don't wanna "f" with because if you do... heaven help you because hell will be too scared! `Slippin' was a gutter obscene, gritty read as well. Reading about Sabrina makes me wish they would hurry up and clone a human because I would like to get a little of what she got. Heck, who am I kidding...? I'd sell my firstborn for bus fare and then ride that bus through Baghdad wearing a "What Would Jesus Do" t-shirt just to get a taste a' that!

"Kandy Girlz' was good but the strength really comes from the first two stories. It isn't a bad story, but if these three stories were in the Olympics "Kandy Girlz' would get the bronze. Not because it did not try or because it sucked, but rather because the other two were THAT good! All in all this was a very good book and I was introduced to two authors that I will keep an eye out for in the future.

Not being a real fan of urban lit,there are 3 authors that I will always read having been a fan of De'Nesha since she came out, and only purchasing the book because she was in it. I have now added 2 others to my list. Heartbreaker was a good book,
All of the stories were great and the spins each author put in the books had me like OH HELL NO!! The women in these stories were straight up take-no-prisoners, they definitely used what they had to get what they wanted and had no remorse and were not apologetic. They were either "stay in your lane" or get ran the (bleep) over! Great job! I definitely will be checkin in with these authors in the future.

Format: Paperback
Heartbreaker: one that causes sorrow, grief or disappointment; a charming person who is irresponsible in emotional relationships. Such is the premise for this anthology featuring De'nesha Diamond, Erick S. Gray and Nichelle Walker.

Slippin' by De'nesha Diamond - Delvon Jackson is a young hustler that finds himself smitten by a woman he met at a club. Determined to have her at all cost, he gets a lawn job at her house only to quickly get in a predicament he may not be able to hustle out of.

Put `Em in Their Place by Erick Gray - Revenge is the name of the game for Cha, a sexy stripper irresistible to all men. Using her womanly wiles, she gets next to her intended vic. But does her quest for revenge blind her to other dangers?

Kandy Girlz by Nichelle Walker - Kandy uses what she's got to get what she wants. In doing so, a few have crossed her. Kandy doesn't cry, she gets even.

I mistakenly expected more from "Heartbreaker" based on the glowing reviews. Erick Gray's story easily outshines the others with a creative twist. However, up to that point it was the same `get money chick' tale that has been told over and over again. Girl strips. Girl is promiscuous. Girl wears designer clothes. Girl thinks she is all that. Typical but a decent effort. Having now read a few of his books, I would love to see him use his talent and think outside of the box to create a novelty.

De'nesha Diamond's story could be good if readers are willing to accept everything as is and question nothing. I am not that reader. In addition, I felt the author was reaching, trying too hard to come from the male point of view. In the end, it's a female author trying to write from the perspective of a man and you can feel that.

Nichelle Walker's story I have read before.

Format: Paperback
Heartbreaker is composed of three short stories by De'Nesha Diamond, Erick S. Gray, and Nichelle Walker. All of the stories showcase dynamic `get-back' characters who, in one way or another, are caught up in the glitz and glamour of high living, are clearly knocked off their pedestals, and redeem themselves or not.

In Slippin' by De'nesha Diamond, Delvon Jackson is `that' dude. He can get any woman he wants and his reputation of being distracted by sex is a blessing and a curse. Delvon meets a beautiful woman, Sabrina Walker, in a club and is mystified when she brushes him off. Delvon's close friend, Alonzo, just happens to work at the Walker Estate and helps Delvon obtain employment there. While Delvon needs a job, his real motive is to conquer Sabrina. But is the grass always greener on the other side? Delvon does all he can to get close to Sabrina, but as the smoke and mirrors clear, he learns what it means to be a real player. Diamond crafted a well-paced short story that integrated flashbacks well and will have readers laughing at the main characters' humor and shortcomings.

Put `Em in Their Place by Erick S. Gray is a good story of redemption at a high cost. Cha is a bad chick. Men and most women love her and that is the problem. Cha wants sex with no connections. Relationships have no room in her life. Cha's suitors professing their love turn her off, but she cannot help but make people fall for her. Cha lost her father and does not want to feel that type of pain again. But the game changes when she meets Ya Ya, her father's killer. Cha is now on a mission to exact revenge and in doing so, wrecks a host of lives with the shocking end. Gray's story was interesting and created a great build-up to the end.
