*There is a spoiler here, so if you don't want to see it...move along, lols.
I'm marking this as my first DNF of the year. As a reader of a "certain age" lols, I know what my taste in stories are and Heart of the Hustle isn't part of it. I must say however, that the blurb is intriguing and what drew me into requesting this one.
Heart of the Hustle has many red flags that I should not have by-passed (the constant misogyny, the exploitation of black/brown neighborhoods in the name of we gotta eat, etc...etc). I thought "surely, it's going to get better..hold on girl but when we get to the part where *spoiler here*... Angel's girlfriend and brother are pretty much sleeping around with each other behind his back, I had to check out. At this point, I knew the mess was going to get messier and I had to check out.
Much success to the author and happy reading to the folks who may enjoy this kind of story but, it's not my glass of wine so I'm gonna pass.
Thank you to the author/publisher/Netgalley for the opportunity to read/review.
