Overview
Nikki Turner, Queen of Hip-Hop Lit, is back with one of her gutsiest female characters yet, a glamorous chick with a high-end hustle that can rival any man s game.
As the respected, renowned concierge for a luxury hotel chain, Beijing Lee caters to the wealthy and famous. Whether it s securing a dinner reservation, a fleet of limos, or a record deal, or protecting her clients from the paparazzi, there s nothing Beijing can t do. She s stacked up an impressive pile of IOUs from the world s elite and one day she decides it s time to start cashing in. Before long, she s a five-star diva running her own lucrative business, where she secures her clients their most outrageous and increasingly illegal desires.
But Beijing has her own addiction: a man named Lootchee, who lavishes her with even more diamonds and luxury than she already has. But behind Lootchee s charm and over-the-top romantic gestures is a selfish, high-stakes hustler who lures Beijing into a dangerous web that takes even this seasoned enterpriser by surpise, and breaks her heart in the process.
Once the ball finally drops, it ll take a ghost from Beijing s past to rescue her not only from those who are out to seriously harm her, but from herself."

In her latest, Turner (Ghetto Superstar) offers her usual high drama, betrayal, and street lit hoodlums with moralizing admonishments regarding drugs, greed, fame, and materialism. After surviving, barely, her addicted sister's monstrous attempt to sell her for drugs, Beijing Lee works as a concierge to the rich and famous at the exclusive Tabby hotel chain. Whether hiding superstars from the paparazzi, getting VIPs out of legal snafus, or procuring drugs, Beijing has gone every extra mile for her clientele. Her life takes a turn for the strange, however, when she meets young rapper Teflon the Don, becoming his manager and lover until his heroin addiction goes out of control. A subsequent romance offers a chance for redemption, but before long, Beijing finds that those closest to her aren't what they seem. Turner packs this quickie with melodrama, making it a thoroughly entertaining but predictable affair; with supporting characters straight from central casting, readers may feel as though they've read this novel before.
