From bank of the book:
Precious Cummings came from nothing but was determined to have it all. Using her most deadly weapons - undeniable beauty, body and street savvy brains, Precious sets out to change the cards that sheƂ’d been dealt. After meeting Nico Carter, a man who can help her achieve her goals, virtually overnight she is on her way. Precious quickly transforms from Project Chick to Hood Queen and is determined to hold on to her position even if it means crossing the man who made it possible. Set on revenge, Precious gambles it all in her quest to gain everything. Just when she believes the dice have rolled in her favor, Precious has to answer for the web of deceit that she has set in motion.

My Thoughts
This story flows well. Precious is cold-blooded and outright selfish. Unfortunately the personality of Precious is a familiar one. She goes along with the status quo and with her looks she is able to "pull" the higher level thugs. She thinks with her ego and those decision come back to haunt her. The book is entertaining. The characters are believable. The ending was not a surprise. If I did not know that there was a sequel the ending would not have been very satisfying. If you like urban lit then you will enjoy this book. Happy Reading
