The Hustla wasn't so Golden!
on September 10, 2011
In this tale of who gets the gold. We meet Nina who is out there hustling and gets caught up in a job that lands her brother and best friend in the cemetery and her other brother in critical condition. Nina escapes from the people who are after her but before she leaves she has to handle a little business of revenge that will late come back to haunt her. In the wake of all this drama, Nina leaves her kids behind vowing to send for them when she can.
Nina is now doing big things in GA after running into her old flame Cream. He hooked Nina up with a new job clocking major dollars but Cream had a reason for getting Nina this job and if you know Cream it's only to benefit himself. He is also holding something that Nina did, over Nina`s head to make her do what he wants her to do.
The WMM crew that Nina works with are the highlight of this story, Milt, Shawn, Renaldo, Pete & Jeff. Renaldo is one of the owners of WMM, his business of selling hopes and dreams for a million dollars. You know Renaldo's greed is going to be his downfall, but the question is when will he fall and how hard? Now that you have the players, the plot, throw in a few police and FBI agents , namely one Rick Brown, who are out to take down WMM and everybody associated with this company. Rick turns out to be Nina's savior, but is he the law or not? That's the question.
The title is a catchy title and this was my first read by this author. Don't take it personal all you Wahida fans but the cover was hot.......the book not so hot. The story was not that suspenseful, and I expected what happened next in the story. I will say that I will try another one of her books to compare to this one, so I won't rule her out based solely on this book.
