Between the Covers: Thug Lovin’

Say it Rah-shay By Apr 05, 2011 1 Comment

Wahida Clark’s fourth book in the ‘Thug’ series was the first I had read. In this book, Trae and Tasha have left the game headed to California where they hope to start a new life. Along the way shenanigans ensue and the game pulls them back in and tears them apart.

Although this urban fiction (her words, per her sight) is not my normal genre, when I chose Thug Lovin’ I actually thought I was getting a book about basketball players and their women. Reading about Trae and Tasha’s confused, relationship left me both wanting to read more of Wahida’s books and to hide this book from my kid.

It’s a pretty quick read. There were some characters that seemed to have been added on without being previously introduced or characters that had been briefly mentioned thrust from minor character to major roll. That aside this was a good read. The characters didn’t invite any sympathy. Their actions are so outrageous that I didn’t care who, if any of them, had a happy ending. I have gone back to read the other books. I am curious to see where the story of these ladies and their men begins.

This book is definitely not for everyone. Graphic sex scenes had me blushing. But for my library check out, I enjoyed it and think I will read another.
