Book Review on Married to a Hood Boss by Kandis

Kabria is just what the title says, Married To a Hood Boss. At times, her position is often glamorized, Kabria's boss lady status isn't all glitter and rainbows. Married to a Hood Boss is an urban fiction story that sheds light on the trials and tribulations of Kabria's "head bitch in charge" status. "Most women who were married to boss niggas just sat around, looked pretty, and spent a bunch of money. I was cut from a different cloth. I didn't mind getting my hands dirty or doing whatever my man needed me to do. As his wife, that was my job."

Kabria Banks is married to the King of Tuscaloosa, AL. King Zy is loved by many, and feared by even more. But a lot of Zymir's workers aren't feeling how he lets his leading lady lead so much. When one of his close friends makes a shifty decision it causes a rift in their marriage, making Kabria wonder if Zy loves her as much as he says he does. "You said you would kill any man who showed the slightest bit of disrespect toward me. What happened to that?"

Not only does Zymir Banks have to focus on being the "King of the Streets", he also has to make sure he's being the best husband he can be. Lines cross when his marriage is affected by his street actions, causing trouble on both fronts. "This ain't got nothing to do with me or my brothers. You so quick to blame your problems on us when you need to be sweeping around yo' own doorstep. Your own people foul, but you so caught up on the petty shit my brother did that you don't see it."

I don't read street lit as often as I would like, but when I do, I'm always glad to be back in the trenches. The drugs, murder and the plot twists give me all the feels. This author was able to take some of those elements and make them her own, making this book that much more interesting to read. This book does end on a cliffhanger, so if that isn't your thing, wait until the series is completed. I'll definitely be tuning in for the next installment.
