CAN SUGA STAY TRUE TO HER MAN- AND RESIST HIS DANGEROUS LIFESTYLE? Sophie "Suga" Alvarez is all about two things: loving her man and making her money. Suga is the wifey of Dane, a man whose criminal lifestyle as a loan shark is in total contrast to her successful career in business. Dane swears he will go legit before they get married, but when their house is raided, Suga has to decide to avoid jail time by turning on him or standing by the man she loves. Things get more complicated when she steps in to run Dane's business and has to use her book and street smarts to stay ahead of the game and out of the line of fire. Meanwhile, when Suga learns the terrible truth about her father's criminal past, she uncovers a secret that will change her relationship with her former best friend, Luscious, forever. Real Wifeys: Hustle Hard is the third and most explosive installment in a fierce and gritty series from one of today's boldest voices in street lit.
