Essence® bestselling author Wahida Clark created a gripping look at sex, violence, and the struggles of ghetto life in her first bestselling novel, Thugs and the Women Who Love Them. Her gritty portrayal of love in a criminal world now continues in the sequel where strong men make bad choices—and good women are their only hope.

Having escaped from the hard streets where deals go down on the corner and shots ring out in the night, sexy, beautiful Roz—friend of Angel, Jaz, and Kyra, who’ve all loved thugs of their own—is on her way to a professional career in physical therapy. She doesn’t need to make a U-turn back to the ghetto. But then she meets Trae, who’s still after the bling bling and fast money of drugs. He’s hard, hot, irresistible—and trouble.

Soon Roz is wild for a brother whose world is filled with dark schemes and deadly desires. But blinded by her passion, she can’t see the heartbreak ahead where the ’hood has a law of its own—and its own brand of revenge . . .

The spellbinding story of dangerous love . . .

About Wahida Clark:

Wahida Clark was born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey. She decided to write fiction while incarcerated at a women's federal prison camp in Lexington, Kentucky. Crowned the “Queen of Thug Love Fiction” by Nikki Turner, the “Queen of Hip Hop Fiction” herself, Wahida’s style of writing is the template for urban literature. When you read her novels, they are so real you are convinced of one of three things: you know the characters, you want to know the characters, or you are one of the characters. Her bestselling novels include Thug Matrimony, Every Thug Needs a Lady, Thugs and the Women Who Love Them, Payback is a Mutha, and the novella “Enemy in My Bed” in Sleeping with the Enemy, all published by Kensington/Dafina Books.

Every thug needs a lady (Wednesday, November 19, 2008)
Reviewer: Gi Gi

Ms. Clarke I must say I loved this book. I cant believe it took me this long to read it. I love your work and can't wait to read thug matrimony. I have to see if Trae and Tasha will continue. Are Angel and Kay going to stay together? What is gonna happen to Trae? Is he gonna live?

The Truth (Tuesday, September 30, 2008)
Reviewer: Alexis

When you think about it, every Thug does need that lady that can carry hers and his. This book speaks the truth about a lot of our Brothers that are Thugs that are with this woman and that woman. I thank Ms. Wahida for telling the truth about these brothers and why they are from pillow to pile. Well now I know why Brothers do what they do in the streets.

What I think of your books. (Tuesday, September 9, 2008)

LOVE YOU (Thursday, August 14, 2008)
Reviewer: NICHELLE TAYLOR

I LOVE ALL OF HER THUG BOOKS. EACH BOOK INTRODUCES YOU TO EACH CHARACTER AND IN SOME WAY ONE OF THE CHARACTERS REMIND YOU OF YOURSELF OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW. YOU UNDERSTAND EACH GIRL'S STRUGGLE AND IN SOME WAY THEY INSPIRE YOU TO GO OUT AND GET WHAT YOU WANT, BY WORKING HARD AND NOT LETTING OTHERS PUT FEAR IN YOU BUT TO TAKE THAT FEAR AND USE IT AS WEAPON AGAINST THEM. I LOVE YOU WAHIDA AND YOU ARE A WONDERFUL AUTHOR AND HOPE YOU CONTINUE TO WRITE CAUSE YOUR BOOKS ARE TRULY AN INSPIRATION TO ME
