What to expect
Tressa is a fly girl accustomed to the lavish lifestyle that her possessive and deranged baby daddy, Lucky, has provided her with. In order to keep her high standard of living, she has excused many of his unforgivable actions. It is not until he pulls off the ultimate stunt that she realizes no mink coat, car, house, or any amount of money is worth her peace of mind. Never blinking or thinking twice, Tressa leaves everything behind, with the exception of her street savvy, and sets out to make a life of her own—one that will be filled with hard times and even harder luck.
Tressa soon finds herself making the transition from public figure to public assistance. Every day of her life seems like one drama-filled chapter after another, from the baby-daddy drama to the backstabbing friends to the various men she sorts through and disposes of. There will be times she must struggle and scramble just to make ends meet, and other times when she will stand tall and hold her own.
In this captivating tale, Tressa's voyage will expose listeners to a side of a struggling single mother that has yet to be revealed to them. Nikki Turner, the bestselling author of A Hustler's Wife, once again takes you on a safari through the jungle of the fierce and stormy streets, leaving you on the edge of your seat, begging for an encore.
