I truly enjoyed this book. I read it in one night. "Wifey" is the tale of Kira and her unfaithful husband Ricky. Kira has lived through seven and a half years of insecurity and drama with Ricky.

She knows Ricky is a no good cheating dog, but yet she "puts up" with his ways because of what he does for her financially. He has done everything imaginable to break her heart (have kids outside of the marriage, cheat with other women, disrespect from his baby mothers, and cheating with her co worker). What else can she take?

She becomes numb to Ricky's awful ways once her cousin (who is like a sister to her) gets caught up in the system due to carrying some of Ricky's weight. She see's that Ricky doesnt love her and he is just out for "self". She does the worst thing a "wifey" can do. She breaks the code of conduct and snitches on her man in order to free her cousin of misery.

She also breaks another code and gets too close to one of Ricky's hustling connects. Will she make it out the game of being wifey before Ricky finds out she is the cause of his downfall?

The suspence and drama of this book kept me glued. I kinda felt sorry for Kira @ the end, but I knew Russ was going to play her. She played herself big time.

I cant wait to read the sequel to this.

Why do you have to be a hater because you give a review that's not favorable to the book? A review is just that, your opinion.

I'll say it loud - I DID NOT LIKE THIS BOOK!! I gave the author 1 star for two reasons: 1. That's as low as you can go. 2. The cover and synopsis on the back made you think this book was going to be fire. Psyche!! This was one of the most unbelievable books I've ever read. The title character Kira is married to Ricky the dope man. Ricky who is so smart that he discusses ALL of his business inside his house. Ricky who KNOWS that Kira is stealing from him but does nothing about it. What kind of top dog is this?

Don't let me even get started on Kira. Kira who lets her husband make babies all over the Tidewater area but thinks because she has a few fur coats and a wedding ring that she's running things. Kira who falls hard for her husband's associate that she claimed was so ugly but let end up treating her like the trick she is.

To top it off every other word was dat and den'. I know the author wanted you to get the slang but having those two words appear in every other sentence was ridiculous. Ms. Swinson also felt that she had to give ghetto translations (i.e. food means drugs). Stop doing that, it's stupid. I'm done. This book sucked!!

I thought this book was a wakeup call for me because in reality, regardless of what some of the critics have to say....these things are really happening to some of our sisters out there. I have seen and experienced it first hand.... you might not want to accept it but this is real in a lot of women's lives. I hope that women will take a long look at themselves just like I did and know that there is a better way to live and have a decent life. KUDOs to this author!!!!!! Can't wait to read your next book!!!!

Kira is one street smart chick. Although she put up with 2 much of Ricky's drama,cheating and lying.This book is a page turner. I read it in 2 days. I highly recommend it ....

This cover is Hot! I must admit I thought I was about to read something special, but this book was so terribly written. It was so plain and whack. " I did this, I did that. I really think the publisher should reconsider what they publish. This reflects on them. I will give KiKi another chance and I really hope she steps her game up. Good luck sister! But overall, this has to be the worst book I ever read ( honestly).

I read this book and I thought it was great. Everyone is giving it a bad review and saying don't waste your time. I loved this book. Yes, it could have had a little more action but it was still a page turner for me. And the ending made my mouth drop. I loved it!

I'm a big fan of Kiki when I read candy shop I got addicted , this book wifey is gutta tho she really talks s*** in it lol and My first thoughts were uh uh I'm not about to read it because it starts out so plane with very little word play but then as being a writer myself I thought that maybe it's just intended for a certain audience I mean she definintly has skills trust me I'm a big critic and I don't like many authors but I do love Kiki so look at it this way not every Jay z song is tite, but its what he does. She took the time to write and refused to sit back like a loooot of people who are afraid to even publish their work. They have manuscripts that collect dust. She's corageous and I'm sure you'll like her other titles. #to the author

This book was one of the worst I have ever read! First of all the child needs to go back to school because the grammer was horrible! Every other word was das, dat, den! I mean come on now just because it's an urban book does not mean that the author could have spoken better English. The main character Kira, was just stupid. Her and her husband were both just immature and young acting. The book really didn't go any where, so save your money and get it from the library if you must read it!
