Using her most deadly weapons-undeniable beauty, body and street savvy brains, Precious sets out to change the cards that she had 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.
I began this book not knowing what to expect. The book begins with an innocent teenager, living with a drug addicted mother. After her mother delivers a powerful ultimatum, Precious makes a decision that will haunt her the rest of her life.
After deciding to deal with nothing but ballers, Precious sets her eyes on a local dealer, Czar. Czar and Precious have it going on until Czar meets an unfortunate fate.
As time progresses, she meets the local kingpin, Nico Carter. Nico is Precious’ dream man, he is rich, good looking, powerful, and knows how to handle his business. After dating for a while, Precious finds out some things about Nico that causes her to seek revenge. After making this decision, Precious will use anybody to get her revenge.
After disrupting everyone’s lives around her, Precious thinks she can escape her past and start a new life. Precious moves to Jersey City and finds hapiness. Will she remain happy and live the life she feels she deserves, or will her past come back to haunt her.
I enjoyed this book a lot. I could not believe Precious did all of the rotten things she did and thought it was over. Precious had a few surprises waiting for her.
If you are looking for a fast paced read that will keep you guessing, you have found the right book.
DEJA KING HAS DONE A WONDERFUL JOB…. I HAVE BEEN WAITIN FOR THIS BOOK FOR SO LONG AND I CAN TRULY SAY THAT IM NOT AT ALL DISSAPOINTED….
THIS BOOK WAS VERY FAST PACED AND DRAMA FILLED. THERE WERE MANY TWIST AND TURNS… I LIKE THE CHARCATER PRECIOUS VERY MUCH. SHE WAS A LITTLE OFF THE EDGE BUT I HONESTLY THINKS SHE HAS A GREAT HEART. THIS IS A GREAT READ FOR 2006…
DEJA KEEP UP THE WORK MOMMA…
I have to agree with Ms. Jade when she wrote this is the best book of 2006! I read the entire book cover to cover in 24 hours. Precious wasn’t your ordinary female in urban fiction books. She took charge of her life and she made things happen some good some bad, but she didn’t become a victim. In this novel Daja King takes you on a ride of a young girl determined not to let the ghetto swallow her or will she be swallow the ghetto.
