In the hood, every day is about struggle and survival, and no one understands that daily grind more than twenty-two-year-old Kaeyla "Goldie" Dennis. She's been the "wifey" of an older, wealthy man since she was fifteen, but the discovery of their longtime affair by his real wife brings to a crushing end her hood-fabulous lifestyle in their low-rise project in Newark.

After trying every hustle she can think of to make money, including selling knockoff clothing and bootleg DVDs, Goldie gets an irresistible offer from a sexy strip-club owner.

But Goldie's love of money causes her to make decisions that bring on enemies, and the ultimate test comes when she's gang-raped, beaten, and almost killed. When an offer for her silence is made, will she choose money over self-respect?*The DVD is not included with the digital version of this book.
