Gangsta Divas by Denesha Diamond - Book Review

a1sx2_Thumbnail1_81N43YHWTrL._SL1500_.jpg

The drama continues to unfold in Gangsta Divas by Denesha Diamond.  I don't know how long we are going to keep this up, but I'm always hyped up when another Diva book comes out.  Of course, all your favorite characters are back and are coming back more ruthless than ever when it comes to being on top of the street game.  The one gang, the cripettes make an appearance in this book and you actually get a few questions answered.  Willow is making a statement, Leshelle gets what she always wanted, and Tashara is letting her love for Profit rule all.

The book picks up right where the Street Divas left off and Lucifer's life is flipped upside down when one minute she is professing her love and the next she is losing her love and gaining some hope at the same time.  With Fat Ace gone, there is a power struggle between Lucifer and her brother, but that doesn't last long because Lucifer is not having it. She knows she controls all the power of the Vice Lords and she is not about to fight for it.  Her brother does take too long trying to realize that.

Street Divas - Book Review

After reading the first book, I honestly didn't think there was any more of the story. I thought that was the end and the people who fought so hard to be together were just shattered because of street politics. But that isn't the case. The second book picks up where the first book left off and it starts off pretty gruesome. Let's be real, Melanie was the type of character who you knew who would get what they got coming to her. If you read the first book (which I highly recommend), then you would know her story. Once again, the only thing that pulls me in is the back stories for the different characters. I really believe that the way the author set the story up that the back or past stories will define who these characters are. This goes well for people like Momma Peaches and Lucifer. Meanwhile, a miracle happens and Tashara has officially lost it and after what she goes through, losing it is what she needed. Python and Leshelle are still the crazy King and Queen of shotgun row and because of Leshelle's loyalty to him she get or rather hears her ultimate reward.

Hustlin Divas - Book Review

We start off learning that Memphis has three gang groups and within it, there are females who have a factor in how these gangs operate.  We have the  Flowers, Cripettes, and the Queen G and I did not read the story yet, but I heard this author was good in supplying me with the drama and suspense that I crave in stories.  From the looks of it, she doesn't disappoint.  The first two pages, instant fight and you already know what it's about.  The author kind of threw you into the mix of things with limited facts, but you catch on rather quickly.  For those that don't, Tashara is Leshelle's sister and Profit is Fat Ace's brother or closet thing to and they don't want to be a part of any of these gangs and just love each other, but being where they are from its not possible so things hit the fan when their little love is exposed to the wrong people.  You kind of see how they're relationship started and bloomed with the flashbacks.

In the beginning of the book, you also meet all the characters in one and how each of them role.  You meet Leshelle and find out what she is to the head of the Black Gangsters Disciples.  She was probably the worst one for me and the most dramatic so, in a sense, I hated to love her character.  She is Tashara's sister and feels responsible for her despite her sister not wanting to have anything to do with any type of gangs.  You also learn a little about how both of the sisters were brought up and you get a glimpse of Leshelle and why she is the way she is.  You also see how these two lethal combinations met and how far Leshelle went to gain her position.
