Yarni Taylor is a successful corporate attorney who wants nothing more than for her husband, Des, to renounce his hustlin ways and commit to his life as a pastor especially after someone tries to kill him. But Des isn t ready to abandon his old habits just yet. He has to find out who is behind the murder attempt, and he wonders if the brazen robbery that took place during one of his church services is related in any way.

And, unfortunately, she takes after her father, so trouble isn t far behind.
With their lives on the line, Yarni must sacrifice everything and take it out of the office and back to the streets to save her husband and her family from their checkered but intricately connected pasts."

In the fourth installment of Turner's bestselling series (after Forever a Hustler's Wife), hustler Desmond "Des" Taylor has found a new gig raking in the money as head of the Good Life Ministry, to the dismay of his wife, Yarni. Not only does the once-wild hustler's wife have moral qualms, but as an attorney, she's gaining a new respect for the consequences of crime. Then masked men hold up a church service, gun down one of Des's closest associates, and force his accountant to wire them million. Threats also mount against Yarni, their young daughter, and Des's mother, in violation of the gangsta code. Meanwhile, his previously unsuspected 18-year-old daughter turns up and announces she needs to move in with them. Turner has a gift for making her offbeat characters both sympathetic and memorable, and her entertaining series deserves to break out beyond its core urban lit readership. Author tour. (May)
