Book Description

26 April 2005
The lure of Richmond, VA’s streets is too strong for Bambi, a good girl from the right side of the tracks, who fell in love with, Reggie, a young hustler. Her thug love not only corrupted her but blinded her with the bling and cash that come with living the glamorous life of a gangsta’s girl–until Reggie hit her with a low blow, crumbling her heart. From that day forward, Bambi vowed that whoever crossed her or anyone she loved would pay–usually in large bills.

With the street knowledge she gleaned from her ex as well as her own business savvy, Bambi builds a multimillion-dollar party planning empire. Along the way she runs across all kinds of dudes who try to run massive amounts of game, and ultimately she becomes a first-rate swindler and top-notch gamestress in her own right. Then she crosses paths with Lynx, a young drug dealer who sees more in Bambi than the gold digger she is rumored to be. He methodically penetrates her shield layer by layer until he captures her heart. But is she just setting herself up to be played once again?

The #1 bestselling author of A Hustler’s Wife and A Project Chick, Nikki Turner gives up the game that could never be sold, only told.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good book by Nikki Turner! 20 May 2008
Like Turner's other novels this one had me hooked.

Meet Bambi, a self-made, business, money-making female hustler. Add to this revenge on the men who played her or crossed her, makes for Bambi's speciality. The story follows the trials and tribulations that is Bambi's life. From a crazy ex to a goldigging mother who will not tell her who her father is. At the end of it all she just wants a normal life, but one that can afford her all the power and glamour she is used to. But what she basically finds out is that paybacks a........

The Glamorous Life is not as easy as it seams. Take a ride with Bambi and you will learn what it takes to live The Glamorous Life. Nikki you out did yourself this time. This book get's all 5 stars and anything else I can give ya. It is the true meaning of an urban page turner.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE THIS BOOK 13 Feb 2007
By R. Tinsley - Published on
This was the first book I read by Nikki Turner, and damn I'm hooked now. This book is about a girl named Bambi who is very high maintenance, and a true gold digger. She is all about her, and what she can get from men. Bambi falls in love with a drug dealer named Reggie On the night of her engagment party to Reggie, she gets into an argument with a man whom is wearing the same outfit as her. She discovers that Reggie is on the DL. She is heartbroken. She motivates herself to starting her own business as a party planner, and decides she will get whatever she can from men, but she will not be left heartbroken. Bambi meets Lynx, a hustler. He breaks down the barriers and they fall in love. I dont want to give too much of the book away, but trust that its a good read. I reccommend this book, I wish there was a sequel. LOVED IT!

4.0 out of 5 stars Get 'Em Where It their pockets! 30 May 2005
By Ms Toni - Published on
Bambi's mother is all about business, or should I say the BENJAMINS! "To sum it up, when the money was gone, so was I," she tells Bambi as she tries to instill life's important lessons about men. Bambi never had need for those words or lessons until the man she loves plays her all the way to the left. Picking up the pieces of her shattered heart and remembering what momma told her, she moves forward promising to never let another man have her heart. But some promises are meant to be broken. With a glass fortress surrounding her heart, Bambi becomes well known in Richmond for her party planning skills and for milking brothers dry. Then, out of nowhere Lynx, one of VA's biggest ballers, enters her world. He talks a good game, but is talk cheap? Can he back it up with actions? Will that ice around Bambi's heart melt? Or will she find herself played again?

I for one am happy to see Nikki with a REAL publisher. Now she can shine as the truly talented author she is. I enjoyed the book (especially Ruby) and I look forward to catching back up with Bambi and the crew in the near future.

4.0 out of 5 stars True Love Really Does Happen.... 4 May 2005
By Lamia Ashley - Published on
It took me 2 days to read The Glamorous Life, and because I'm such a Nikki Turner fan, that's about average. Most of her books usually take me a day or two. I can officially say that Nikki Turner has done it again.... In this book you find everything from love, betrayal, and finding true love again. When you first start reading the book you actually say out loud, "Oh, no he didn't"! Then you keep reading and your like, "You go girl"! By the time you get to the last page you're ready to call Nikki herself and ask her why she left you hanging like that....This book is begging for a continuance! Nikki Turner is undeniably the Queen of Hip Hop Fiction!!!! LaMia Ashley, BSW- Atlantic City, New Jersey
