"Following the phenomenal success of Essence bestsellers Dirty Red and Still Dirty, Vickie M. Stringer takes readers on another bumpy ride in Dirtier Than Ever with Red, Bacon, and Q -- the crazy love-hate triangle who makes the series a favorite among urban fiction fans. Q wished that Bacon had killed Red when he had the chance. Red knew that Q's career as a hustler was over and he was counting on starting a new legit business with the money he had made. He had once believed her when she promised that the money didn't mean a thing and she would give it all up to be with him. Bacon returns from prison and suddenly Q is left for dead. With Q out of the picture, Bacon now has Red to himself. His sights are set on being the top hustler with Red by his side. He believes Red has fi nally changed when she reveals the truth about her past. But all comes to a head when the snooping detective, Thomas, suspects Red's involvement in Q's getting shot and the murder of Zeke, Q's best friend. With two murders, a tumultuous love affair, and money on her mind, Red must make a decision ... does she turn over a new leaf or revisit her dirty ways of old? Gritty, steamy, and intense, Stringer delivers another page-turning caper about a hustler in high heels who is Dirtier Than Ever."--Publisher's website

The hottest spot was Jazzy Jay's, and that's where one of the guys slipped his gun into her pocketbook, knowing that the police who had just descended on the club wouldn't check the girls for weapons. She didn't know his name or anything other than he was cute and charming. But when she tracked him down to return his property, she found out his name was Chino; his game was hustling; and his plan was to make her his woman, his wifey, and give her more than she ever bargained for out of life, love, and the pursuit of money

Let That Be the Reason by Vickie M Stringer( Sound Recording )
2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Written in prison and based on real-life experiences, this is the novel that launched the writing and publishing career of the bestselling author of Still Dirty, Dirty Red, and Imagine This, the reigning "queen of urban fiction" (Publishers Weekly).Vickie M. Stringer wrote Let That Be the Reason when she was still serving her seven-year sentence for drug trafficking. When she couldn't find a publisher, she printed the novel herself and sold it out of the trunk of her car. "I've exposed myself with the prayer that my life can be used as an example to warn others of the awful dangers of the drug game," she wrote in its afterword.Let That Be the Reason begins when a drug dealer abandons his girlfriend, Pamela Xavier, leaving her with nothing but a stack of bills, an empty refrigerator, and an impending eviction notice. Backed into a corner and with no prospects in sight, Pamela decides to get her hustle on. Transforming herself into Carmen, she learns to deal with the streets, the playas, the drug lords--and, of course, the law--by any means necessary. In no time, she is running a call girl service, a fencing operation, and a drug cartel, all while still being a mom. Carmen wants money, but she also wants happiness. The problem is that she doesn't quite understand what real happiness is and what real love means--or what it all costs.Let That Be the Reason is a true-to-life saga of a woman's love, ambition to survive, forgiveness, and salvation

But when one of Red's scams backfires and she winds up truly pregnant by her inmate ex-boyfriend, Bacon, she finds herself in more trouble than she's ever known.The drama truly unravels when Red's picture-perfect cons fall apart due to--surprisingly--the power of love

Vickie Stringer's previous novel, Let That Be the Reason, was based on life as she knew it in the shocking underworld of the sex and drug trade. In this follow-up, Stringer once again takes listeners into the dark underbelly of the street scene and presents the difficult and dangerous choices people must make to preserve their families--and their lives.Vickie Stringer has gained a legion of fans for her portrayal of Pamela, a.k.a. Carmen, a woman who had it all but lost out when the love of her life left her penniless and alone to raise their son. Pamela refuses to remain powerless, though. She pulls herself up, becomes a major hustler in the street game, gains independence, and makes big money--but the consequences are more dreadful than she ever imagined.Imagine This continues the saga of Pamela as she does jail time and has to decide who she really is: Pamela, a woman who, more than anything, loves her son and wants to be there to raise him, or Carmen, the ruthless baller, who does the crime, serves the time, and honors, at any expense, the code of the street
