Verdict: The fourth installment in Essence best-selling author Chunichi’s saga about gangster girl Ceazia, now back home in Virginia, will be read by the legion fans who want to find out who plays game on who, who wins and who loses. Buy multiple copies, along with the other titles in the series: A Gangster’s Girl, Married to the Game, and The Naked Truth. The Gangster Girl’s Saga compiles all three novels into one volume.
Background: Ceazia is usually the bad girl in charge. A force to be reckoned with, she tells it like it is, does it the way she wants it done, and gets it the way she demands it. But not this time—the hood diva is given a reality check when her best gal pal, Diamond, spices up the competition in the men department, a challenge that sets Ceazia’s green eyes ablaze.
