Her thug love not only corrupted her but blinded her with the bling and cash that come with living the glamorous life of a gangsta's girl-until Reggie hit her with a low blow, crumbling her heart. From that day forward, The lure of Richmond, VA's streets is too strong for Bambi, a good girl from the right side of the tracks, who fell in love with, Reggie, a young hustler.

    I think I'd much rather give this four and a half stars than four but I have to stop just shy from "amazing". I do think this was a great Turner book and I wasn't disappointed at all. I loved how she included some characters that I've read in other books although this book probably came first, not sure. Bambi was an AWESOME main character and it's not too often I'd go out of my way to say that. I fell in love with her from the start. She was built perfectly in my opinion.

I need to know now what the sequel is to this and if it's out already? I think it's possible I may have read it already and not even known if was the sequel to this but I hope not. I'm dying to find out what happens to Linx and Bambi and if Lootchee gets his payback. If anyone knows what the sequel is then LET ME KNOW! I definitely recommend this but then, I'd recommend everything she's written. She's definitely the Queen in my eyes!

    Understand the struggle In the jungle we hear this tale again, and again. Bambi Ferguson from Virginia's capital city is quickly mesmerized by all of the excitement in the streets. Pivoting hard while living the fast life it's love at first sight. Can you believe that even after two years she still gets chills up her spine from hearing her Boo talk? That's how you know it's love! I wonder how many chills she's getting as the surprise of happiness ever after has somberly come to a squealing close.

That's how you know it's love! I wonder how many chills she's getting as the surprise of happiness ever after has somberly come to a squealing close. Oh no no no don't phunk with my heart.... Bambi dwindles down into a dark and lonely place. Slowly she resolves that any dude slippin' gets no mercy! Regardless of his jostle; from dope boys, stick up kids, gamblers, or gunslingers. Now that Bambi was navigating, she'd no longer be the deer caught in the headlights. Or would she? The coolest Cat ever branded from VA returns. Lynx discovers a rare black beauty. Bambi's résumé for being a heartless female is quickly exposed. Instead of her past rerouting him, Lynx has a major admiration for her Gangstress. Promising to add to her life Bambi believes that she's finally found THE ONE! She's rearranged her way of life completely, without a second thought Lynx shoulders all of the aches. Will he become another name on the ever growing list. Bambi now unleashes the ultimate level. Without any geographical boundaries, she has the game on a new lock down. F U pay me... Events R Us is flourishing. As the price is right on her love life again it becomes "crystal" that Bambi has contracted herself with the wrong partner. Abundance of escapades, paybacks, ghetto livin', with heartaches. You got shorties jumping into the game with no instructions. Make money, take money WHAT...It all leads to those seeking out that glamorous life, learning that without love, it ain't much! Pause...As life seems to fall into line someone, something, somewhere seems unsatisfied....With yet more to come can this deer maintain in the jungle? Keep checkin' for the follow up to Bambi's glamorous life. PERSONALLY, I like me some Nikki Turner. The fact that she's with a better publisher, and took the time to apologize for past mishaps, further supports that. Deemed as an NT Original, I found The Glamorous Life to be just okay! The essence of the friendships, and the imminent need to be loved is captured perfectly. That Ruby character and her institutionalized thorough self made me laugh out loud. However, I don't have any empathy for a business savvy chick that has her own means, yet is dedicated to getting whatever she can, using what she's got! I did feel some growth in the character, yet, it's still the same verse.

    I REMEMBER BEING IN MIDDLE SCHOOL WANTING TO READ THIS BOOK SO BADLY. I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE SOME TYPE OF FAIRY TALE BLACK PRINCESS BOOK. BUT BOY !!!! IT WAS FAR FROM IT I REALLY ENJOYED THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT KEPT MY INTEREST THE WHOLE TIME. THE MORE I READ THE MORE INTERESTING THE BOOK BECAME. BAMBI IS SUCH A SWEET BEAUTIFUL STRONG WOMAN. DOING WHAT SHE HAD TO DO BY ANY MEANS. NIKKI TURNER CRAFTED A WELL WRITTEN BOOK. SOME PARTS OF THE BOOK I HATED - - - BUT OTHER PARTS I LOVED & FOUND MYSELF CRY I REMEMBER BEING IN MIDDLE SCHOOL WANTING TO READ THIS BOOK SO BADLY.

THIS BOOK IS THE EPITOME OF THE FAMOUS SAYING "IT CAN'T RAIN FOREVER" -or- "THERE'S ALWAYS A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL". I MUST ADMIT NIKKI TURNER BOOKS ARE MY URBAN ADDICTION. I HEAR THERE'S A SEQUEL TO THIS BOOK I'LL DEFINITELY READ IT EVEN THOUGH I'M NOT A BIG FAN OF SEQUELS THIS BOOK DAMN SURE DESERVES ONE

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This story was wild, I laughed then I was confused, then I was surprised then I was just incredulous 🤯. Definitely entertaining, plot driven to the max. How Bambi did the guy in the military was crazy 😜 and then Lynx hiding IN the COFFEE TABLE??? 😆😆I had to read that page two times...what kinda coffee table is this!? 😆 I think what it is..I’ve outgrown these type of books but it reminded me of the books we passed around in high school good nostalgia

    Nikkis always been a genius since I was in Middle School! Shes the best. Showing how a woman turned cold by love can be saved by the real thing and a real man.

    I can definitely feel this book, I loved Bambi and she's very likeable and midway through I found myself rooting for her. I also believe this was a very quick read. Now my problem with this book was that I felt it had absolutely no plot. I felt as if I was reading the first half of a book where the introduce the characters and then small problems pop up but there was always one big problem that needed to be solved by the end of the book.

This book is literally the first half of a book because I felt as if there was no plot at all, no big problem and it just seemed to hop all over the place in my eyes. I felt as if there was almost no purpose for the book. The smaller issues were very good and I hoped for a bigger one to pop up and possibly the ending will be the bigger problem but I don't know, it just didn't sit well with me 3/4 into the book. It's still a decent book to read, don't get me wrong.

    So I tried to start reading this again and it just didn't work for me. I really can't connect with the reading style like I used too. I use to love reading this types of books when I was in high school. I just couldn't connect with the main charcter and the slang in the book was just to much. Maybe I will try reading again one day. I really hate not finishing what I started but I just couldn't do it. So I guess when I do finish this book the rating gave it will change but now 2 stars is all it g So I tried to start reading this again and it just didn't work for me.

    I enjoyed the characters from the book. Bambi had her game on and was all business; only taking revenge on people who either did her or friend Egypt wrong. Can't wait to read more of Nikki Turner's books. The storyline was action packed, full of excitement, and a bit of revenge when it came to a women being treated wrongly by either slick or abusive men. I highly recommend reading this by Nikki Turner and getting to know all of the characters. I enjoyed the characters from the book.

    From the page one it a page turner. Nikki really out did herself this time with this one. I like the Hustler Wife but this one I loved. All the character was jumping out at you. It was like you was there. I hate giving a summary of the book. So let me just put it like this. You want be disappoint because your money will be very well spent

    The book started off pretty good but there were a couple of things that made me think a little. Overall the book was pretty good. It had a slow moment but I was determined to finish reading it to see what happens. I am not sure I would read part 2 if it ever came out. There's really not much more to add on to it.

    After being quite frustrated when I finished reading Sister Souljàs The Coldest winter ever (which is now my favorite urban book) I thought I would never find a book in the same genre with a storyline even captivating. This one is a great read. I recommend this book for those that have really enjoyed Sister Soulja ´s series

    Not bad. It held my interest but I didn't like how it ended. She should have let you know if there was going to be a book continuing the story. Not bad. It held my interest but I didn't like how it ended. She should have let you know if there was going to be a book continuing the story.
