SERIES DEBUT BY NATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR
Coming in January 2011!
On the Grind
By Meesha Mink
CASH RULES EVERYTHING AROUND HER AND GOLDIE WILL USE ANYTHING TO GET IT. . . .
In the hood every day is about struggle and survival, and no one understands that more than twenty-two-year-old Kaeyla “Goldie” Dennis. So when the affair she’s been having with a wealthy married man comes crashing to an end, Goldie doesn’t waste any time getting back on her grind. Her new hustle? Running a strip club where she also happens to be the main attraction. Pretty soon she’s knee-deep in the skin game with more money than she ever imagined. Enough to bring more girls on and even hire a security detail. But as the saying goes, More money, more problems. When one of her dancers becomes the victim of a vicious assault, Goldie must decide whether to remain silent and continue her lucrative business or tell the truth and lose everything she’s worked for. Her decision will test her devotion to the motto she seems to live by: Get Rich or Die Trying . . .
Real Wifeys is the first installment of a fierce and gritty new series by the coauthor of one of the classics of street fiction, Desperate Hoodwives.
The Nationally Bestselling Hoodwives series co-authored by Meesha Mink, changed the face of urban fiction in the way that the Coldest Winter Ever and True to the Game laid the foundations for the genre. Now Mink returns with a gritty new urban fiction series that is sure to bring the heat. Fierce and uncensored, REAL WIFEYS: On the Grind, the first book in the REAL WIFEYS series, is an intimate look at the scandalous life of a “wifey” who uses her sex appeal and street smarts to strike it big on the streets of Newark.
LIBRARY JOURNAL PICK OF THE MONTH
“Mink gives Kaeyla a snappy and profane voice laced with sarcasm… Female readers will love her, but men may want to check their own woman’s purse for taser wires. Load your shelves with multiple copies.”
PRAISE FROM PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY
“[The] first disturbing installment of a gritty new urban series with a down and dirty intensity that’s heartbreaking given Goldie’s age and circumstances.”
Stay tuned for Meesha day on my site. She will be my quest blogger and we’ll be giving away a copy of her new release, REAL WIFEYS: On the Grind, the first book in the REAL WIFEYS series. Don’t miss out.
