Book Review: Real Wifeys Hustle Hard: An Urban Tale By Meesha Mink

I recently received a copy of the new book Real Wifeys Hustle Hard: An Urban Tale by Meesha Mink to review.

Sophie "Suga" Alvarez loves two things: money and her man. "Wifey" to Dane, she has a successful career in business as a junior exec. Dane has a successful career too - but it's not exactly legal. He's a loan shark, among other things. He swears he'll go legit before they get married - which Suga really wants - but when their house is raided, Suga must decide to either avoid jail time by turning on him, or stand by the man she loves. It's a tough choice. When she steps in to run Dane's business, things get more complicated and she must use her business and book sense, along with street smarts, to stay ahead of the game. Even worse, she finds out a secret about her father's criminal past that will change her relationship with her former best friend, Luscious, forever.

If you love the glamorous life of urban living and being married to rap or hip hop stars, or real housewives - I think you'll enjoy this book. It's definitely an urban tale, with plenty of slang and expletives throughout the story. It's as real as it gets when it comes to that! You almost feel like you are watching a reality movie as you are reading it. While this is the final book of this trilogy, you don't need to read the first two to know what's going on in this one.

Just in case you're not familiar with the slang, a "wifey" is someone who basically does everything a wife does, but they aren't married.

I received a copy of this book in order to read it and share my thoughts on it. All opinions are my own, and not that of the author(s) or publisher.

I want my damn MONEY back. I thought that this was going to be a good read,since it was the last one. To much sex scene and way to much profanity usage. I hate to see African Americans writers use such language like that is the only way we talk. Really Niobia, you could have done better.

This book was okay, but don't waste your money!!Real Wifeys (plural)Hustle Hard, deal with one woman, so why put the s on wifey. If you are a woman who consider yourself as a wifey when your the girlfriend then maybe this is the book for you. This book make you think that the author live her life like that "WIFEY". Okay book, but you get bored at time reading certain section of the book.

You don't always need closure to leave, you need to leave because you deserve better. This is what Suga should have done before she got caught up in the game.
