Precious Cummings is more ruthless than ever in Part 3 of the Bitch series. In The Bitch Is Back, Precious is relishing in every hood queen s dream life. She has her king, Supreme, and her princess, their daughter Aaliyah. With an estate in Beverly Hills, a fleet of luxurious cars and endless cash flow, the drama Precious experienced in the gritty streets of New York is a distant memory … or so she thought. Without warning, Precious worst nightmare becomes a reality. Pretty Boy Mike, the man who brutally raped Precious and who plotted to have her husband Supreme killed, has escaped from prison. With her life in danger, Precious resorts to what she knows best murder and mayhem to defend herself and the people she loves. Hell hath no fury than a gangsta chick out to protect what she cherishes the most her family. Brace yourself as Precious again wreaks havoc from West to East Coast battling her most treacherous enemy yet.
The Bitch is Back by Deja King is the third installment of the Bitch series and still has Precious Mills (nee Cummings) getting down for what she believes.
Living lavishly with her music mogal husband, Supreme, and their infant daughter, Aaliyah, all of Precious’ dreams had come true. Her fairytale world began to crumble when she was informed that Aaliyah had been abducted at a park while with her nanny, Anna. Though Precious appeared to have tamed her wild ways, the kidnapping reawakened the beast her followers once knew as she hunted for her daughter; she was out for blood. Her anger heightened when she found out her rapist, who was supposed to be incarcerated, may have had Aaliyah.
Knowing her daughter’s fate was in her hands, Precious was propelled to lie to her husband, lash out at those who genuinely cared for her, and reached out to Nico, who previously attempted to kill her. How could such a wonderful world become hell without warning? It can happen when you couple unresolved conflicts with greed and the creativity of Deja King.
The Bitch is back delivered on its title. While Precious still donned the softer side she had in the series’ second installment, Bitch Reloaded, she no doubt lets us know that she still has it in her. The author did a great job of incorporating the characters back stories so the novel works well as a stand-alone. I loved the emotional conflict Precious had over Nico because of its realism, but I was a bit disappointed with the dialogue toward the end of the story. I felt they were too detailed, but to give an example would spoil the plot. Hopefully, Deja King will drop the fourth installment as soon as possible. The cliffhanger ending was totally unexpected, but I am not quite sure if Precious has enough steam to captivate readers one more time…or can she?

The Bitch is Back Part 3
THE B!TCH IS BACK by Deja King, This was an excellent book.
Precious is still the street smart hard core girl from the 1st and 2nd book. She still likes to takes things into her own hands. She married Supreme after him and her almost being killed by Mike, which is now supposed to be on lockdown for almost life. He tried to murder them on several occasions and even made Precious lose her baby in the last book. Precious still ended up surviving all and marrying her 2nd love Supreme, who was in the music industry and they conceived a little girl named Aaliyah. Her first love was Nicco who also tried to kill her through a misunderstanding. When Precious moved she thought she moved far away from danger, when all along she took the danger and befriended her…….
Even though Mike tried to harm her she still remained friends with his sister. His (Maya) sister is the one that saved her life from one of her struggles in the last book, which made them best friends. Everything was going ok for Precious until Mike escaped from jail, while even the police still thought he was in custody. Mike kidnaped Precious and Supremes daughter Aaliyah, which turned their world upside down for a minute. Maya stayed close by with her boyfriend Clip that was in the music industry. This was the perfect set up for Maya and Mike. Maya wanted to get Precious back because she took away the only one that took care of her, her brother. She also wanted Supreme as her man instead of Clip. Aaliyah was brought back safe, when Precious was in danger from her so called best friend Maya and her brother.
The shocking part about this is that Supreme knew nothing about what was going on, he thought his wife was going to get him a gift. Deja King definitely delivers with another mind blowing story. I can’t wait until the 4th book released and hit the stands.
Deja King Congratulations to you and please keep those dynamite books coming.

After I read Bitch I didn’t think it could get any better until I read Bitch Reloaded. After Bitch Reloaded I didn’t think the storyline could go anywhere else. All my doubts were put to rest after reading The Bitch Is Back. Ms. King your creativity amazes me. Part 3 of the Bitch series is my favorite so far. It shows yet another side of Precious Mills.
I don’t want to give away the storyline but I will say that I love Supreme and Precious together but the way Nico was brought in the mix had me wishing they were a couple again. I absolutely love their chemistry.
Deja King you have urban literature on lock. No one can touch your skills, which seem to get better with each book. The end threw me for a loop and I can’t wait to read part 4. Please hurry up!
