I've been so hyped waiting on the release of this book. I'm a huge Deja/Joy King fan and have read all her books. So when the vendor I get my books from in Philly told me he had it I quickly got my copy and once again Ms. King did not disappoint.

From the jump you're picking sides as to which character has the potential to be a good person or which one is downright trifling, which is most. For instance, Tierra a lot of times appears to be a lost cause. She is willing to do just about anything to not be the hoodrat she's destined to be. But with all her lowdown behavior I actually liked her A LOT!

Then you have Nichelle, who has one tragic event after another. My heart went out to her. I wanted her to find a good man so bad because she had been cheated out of love time and time again but I wonder if it just ain't meant to be. I also love how Ms. King brought in characters from Stackin' Paper. If you haven't read that one, you will definitely want to after reading Trife.

This book was pure fire. I don't know how Ms. King always delivers refreshing, edge of your seat books but she got one creative mind. I love it and trust you will not be disappointed with her new one. We stand up for you in Philly Ms. King, another winner to add to your crown. Oh, and Ms. King I can't wait for Last Bitch Standing, hurry up!

If you didnt read the book stackin' paper i suggest you do its the book before this one. I read stackin' paper and stackin' paper 2 only to find out that trife to lavish is also part of the series and trife life to lavish part 2 is the book that you are supposed to read after stackin' paper 2. so if you didnt read stackin paper you are missing part of the story. they are a good read but for some reason she decided to write them under both her names joy king and deja king. i dont know why the books have separate titles, my best guess is that she wanted to create two different story lines that blend together but to me its confusing to the reader. as i said the books are good but i didnt know anything about the trife life series at first.

Nichelle Martin is a young, impressionable girl that is hopelessly in love with hood rich Carmelo. Nichelle's fighting past demons with the horrible secret that she and her mom harbor between themselves. She's trying to finish school, love Carmello, and adjust to the glamorous lifestyle that comes with being Carmelo's wifey. She and Tierra Thompson have been best friends since childhood and Tierra has fought many a fight for Nichelle. Whether it be clothing her in the latest designer threads or financing her dental work so that she can have braces to straighten out her teeth, Tierra has always weathered the storm with Nichelle.

Tierra is a gold digger and makes no bones about it. Born with a silver spoon in her mouth until the streets claimed her father, his legacy, and her mother's will to live the `trife life'. Tierra is balling every day striving to attain status and leave the life of struggle behind. She's in search of a major baller and in her quest has brought treachery, murder, and mayhem in the mix of her clique. Renaldo "Renny" O'Neal has appeared on the scene looking for new territory while running from trouble in Atlanta. Upon his first sight of Nichelle, he's enchanted with her and schemes discreetly to have her as his own.

Deja King is a dream weaver...where do I begin. Trife Life has brought to life another set of captivating characters that are so realistic it tugs you into the storyline and has you visualizing each scene. Trife Life 2 Lavish is full of so many lessons, so many different points of view that challenge the reader to think of exactly what the 'trife life' entails, and the price that so many people, young and old pay.

Nichelle/Genevieve is a young girl from the hood with no street smarts. She gets caught up with this thorough bred thug and gets completely sprung! WTH!!! Now she's running for her life! The previews from the part 2 says she's wondering where her man is...why? She should hope him & is scandalous cousin are dead! To really appreciate this series I would recommend reading Stackin Paper 1 first and then this book. In all actuality if I would have known that the Last Bitch Standing tied into this and the Stackin Paper series this is the order I would read them in....
The Bitch series books 1-4
Stackin Paper I
Trife Life to Lavish
Stackin Paper II
The Last Bitch Standing
Trife Life to Lavish II (Last & finally ties everything up)

Because if you read the last Bitch before Stackin Paper you may get confused because new characters are introduced (Genesis, Arnez, Coca, etc.). You'll appreciate them more if you read about them and there history first (Stackin Paper)not just see cameos.

Overall a great read. Just wish that Nichelle/Genevieve was not so naive and impressionable.

After walking in on her mother killing the only father she has even known, Genevieve is whisked to a new town and is given a new identity. Growing up as Nichelle, she was picked on and bullied until Tierra came along. Instantly becoming her best friend, Tierra fought her battles and tried her best to instill street smarts into Nichelle. Tierra, feeling that she is Queen B and is the savviest, is constantly envious of Nichelle's beauty and mostly of Nichelle's relationship with Carmelo. At age 17 not only did Nichelle unintentionally snag a baller, but the most influential and sought after one in the city. After falling deeply in love, he moves her into his high rise condo and buys her a Benz. Unlike other hood tales, Nichelle and Carmelo appear completely in sync when it comes to their love for one another. The only problem in Nichelle's eyes is, he dislikes her hood rat, gold digging, best friends Tierra and Simone.

When Tierra gets caught red handed trying to steal money from her boo, he drops her like a hot potato. Desperately low on cash, Tierra accepts a proposition that will fatten her pockets like never before. Like a domino effect, Carmelo and Simone are soon found dead. This devastates Nichelle like no other but luckily a familiar face by the name of Renny, also an acquaintance of Tierra, is there to save the damsel in distress. He allows Nichelle to move into his mansion and while catering to her every need, he graciously respects her space and allows her to grieve. Surprisingly, Nichelle finds herself easily falling for Renny. When she finally decides to tell him how she feels, he doesn't reciprocate exactly how she hoped. Nichelle played right into his plans and unbeknownst to her, he has her wrapped around his finger.
