    OK first of all I will like to say is this book is RAW. So for you sensitive people read carefully. It tells the story of a girl whose mother has been shot by a jealousy lover and a father who was the Pimp, that has been sent to jail for her death. She is placed in foster care at the age of 6 and becomes very close to another young lady the same age because they are being rapped by the foster mothers 16 year old son EVERY night until they are 12 when he brutally beats and tries to rape the friend. The foster mother and YaYa walks in on this and decides to burn the house down when the foster mother blames them for what has happened all those years, with the foster mother and son in it. They go on to survive on the streets and become 21 yrs olds only to fall into the ring of prostution that causes one friend to become HIV positive and the other to meet up with a crazy woman that will do anything to have YaYa as her very own. But YaYa does not get down like that and leaves her for a guy that has taught her that she is more then that and needs to respect herself and makes her feel like she is worth something. The crazy woman and I do mean crazy, kills the new found guy brother after she makes herself look like YaYa on tape and sends it to him. He beats YaYa half to death and leaves her only to get caught up with the crazy woman. Read to find out more!! I do believe this is a good FICTIONAL (for some of you) read that is just plan ol’ entertaining. It is not supposed to be REAL life down to somebody saying, “Oh snap that happened to me too!” and who knows maybe it did. Come on people. For real! Let’s not take the book and dissect it page by page, paragraph by paragraph. If that is the cause, I am still waiting for that clown in It by Stephen King to come out the sewer and get me! OMG! You write something and let’s see how that goes! I look forward to part 2.

    Although the name Ashley Antoinette may not ring a quick bell for some, if you throw JaQuavis in the mix, you will understand that the two have made up some of the best street lit fiction to hit the shelves. With The Prada Plan we welcome Ashley’s solo debut. At the tender age of 6 Disaya, better known as Yaya handily learns the quality of couture and the importance of having a plan in life, a Prada Plan. Disaster strikes Yaya’s world when both parents are eliminated, and is suddenly forced to forget an existence where she is the center jewel of their heart. Yaya is immediately defaulted to being a foster child, where she endures nightly molestation by her foster Mother’s son. Being raped of her innocence at 7, the only piece of hope and spirit she has left is the echoing of her Mother’s voice and her new companion, soon to be sister for life, Mona. Together they flee the house of misery and the story fast forwards to duos life at the age of 21. The pair is finally living some-what stable life a freedom, however Yaya has yet to attain her Prada Plan. While patience is a virtue, Yaya is not ashamed to admit that she’s merely a Rocawear chick and will go through great lengths to be recognized as a couture Mami. Following the same suit as her Mother and by being absolutely beautiful it’s no task for to Yaya to start selling herself to some of the most elite and highest paid individuals to receive top dollar. Once she is introduced to Leah, she begins engaging in same sex escapades and everything else in-between. A friendship/businesses relationship turns to into an obsession as Yaya attempts to put an end to Leah’s bizarre behavior and a life of hoeing after falling in love with Indie, the one person who can fulfill her plan. Leah’s addiction for Yaya if far from just physical its a dependency that is a psychological demon and she will go through any obstacle to hurt Yaya and everyone else in her life. I gave Prada Plan 4 stars, while a couple situations in my opinion were unrealistic even in fiction form; the story and bombshell situations were enough to make me smile at the work of a mastermind in street lit. With pending answers, and the outcome of characters to be left unanswered I am desperately waiting for part 2. Pick of Prada Plan, you surely will not be disappointed.

    This book was amazing! I've only read one other book by Ashley Antoinette but she didn't disappoint me in either book! I can honestly say that this is now one of my many favorite urban lit books.The main character, Yaya, was born into the street life. She had a mother for a whore and a daddy for a pimp. Despite losing her parents at a young age, Yaya was able to provide for herself, find love, and ultimately change for the better. Unfortunately for her, drama still found a way to follow her. This book contained a lot of dramatized and unrealistic events. So if you don't like that kind of fiction, I don't recommend this book for you. But if you're like me and love dramatic books, definitely read this one!! It's a page turner and there is never a dull moment. Side note: This was my actually my first audiobook and I unexpectedly took a liking to the format. Definitely recommend audiobooks. It's very easy to multitask with.

    This book is VERY well written. I have to admit that I am a little shocked and pleasantly surprised that Ashley Antoinette did so well without JaQuavis Coleman. I am so proud of her. You go girl! Haha. This book is definitely FIVE STARS. The only complaints I have about this book is that there are a few inconsistencies that contradict each other in the first half of the book and also that the book is a little slow in some places. She was VERY detailed and really stretched this book out which I can appreciate sometimes but I was so filled with anticipation that I felt some pages and whole small chapters were not even necessary. I felt forced to read through certain passages just to get to the point. This book is full of sex, murder, and deceit. The worse part to me is the deceit. It kills me that people can lie and also hide their past from the person they love with a straight face! I don't think Ash and JaQua's books would be possible though if their characters were actually truthful. This book will make you want to scream and make you want to cry. Matter a fact this is the first book that has actually made me angry, hahah I wanted to hurt some of the characters myself! This page turner centered around YaYa will evoke feelings from the first page and I for one can't wait for part two!

    I could bash this, but it was actually really interesting reading something with a target audience so far outside my demographic.

    THIS BOOK SUCKS!!!!!!! BY FAR THE MOST SUCKIEST BOOK I'VE EVER HAD THE DISPLEASURE TO COME ACROSS. READING THIS TELLS ME THAT MS. ANTOINETTE HAS NO TALENT WHATSOEVER.IF ANYONE HAS A PROBLEM WITH MY FEELINGS TOWARDS THIS BOOK THEY CAN KISS MY ASS. OH, AND HAVE A GREAT DAY! :)Okay- here goes. I'm extremely dissappointed in this book, Ashley's writing, the plot, the characters, pretty much everything included in this debut. Of course this is the first book in a series- that was a must given the series loving authors out there today- particularly in the urban-fiction genre. I just wish they would stick to only making a sequel if the first book is actually GOOD. I have doubts I'll even pick the sequel for this up. If I do, it'll be because I'm wondering if she's gotten any better on her own. Ashley Antoinette is "Ashley" from Ashley & JaQuavis. Together, they make great books. Alone, the one half I can speak on as of yet leaves a lot to be desired. Here we go folks: The Prada Plan- the plot- eh. What can I say. It was borderline decent and a better author may have been able to do more with it but either way it's severely lacking. Leah- not the main character but she's the crazy one. How many people want to guess the biggest situation that shows Leah's craziness? No one? I'll just tell it then- Leah is sitting in front of a mirror doing her lipstick (anyone know where this is going yet?), she's thinking about how Disaya supposedly played her and what does she do? She keeps drawing on the lipstick. Over and over and over again. (Yes, I'm quite serious everyone.) "With the lipstick in her hand, she continued to apply layer after layer, making her circle wider and wider, until red lipstick was painted all over her face." (That's a sentence from the book by the way.) I'm embarressed to even retype it personally. A child could come better than that. Um, I'm not sure what all Ashley knows about drugs but from what I do know, cocaine doesn't make you fall asleep. Heroin? Sure. Not coke. Sorry Ashley. That just made the story a little more idiotic in my opinion. Another example: Leah whispers into Indie's ear when he's asleep, supposedly "programming" him to where she wants him to be. "Don't be a fool. You're taking care of a bitch that you're not even with. She killed you're brother. Put that bitch out on her ass and sell your house." (Real sentences again by the way.) How stupid can one situation in a story actually be? It's not even attempted to be realistic at all. Oh, by the way, the next morning Indie called the realator and sold his house. Of course.I'm not even sure I can go here but what the hell. I have to. I'll let this paragraph speak for itself. '"Oww!" she shrieked. She felt something slip between her legs an, and when she lifted the covers, she quickly put them back down. "Oh, my God. Oh, my God," she chanted as she lifted the sheets again and saw a huge mass of blood, mucus, and an undeveloped human body between her legs.'Do I actually need to say anything else? What is this science fiction all of a sudden? I was under the impression this was supposed to be realistic. I almost threw the book in the trash when I read that stupid ass simple sentence. The ending to the story was absolutely horrible. I read this days ago and couldn't even bring myself to review it right away. I'm sure I could have given more samples of how utterly horrible this book is but I don't want to rack my brain anymore. I'm disgusted. It's as if JaQuavis has been carrying her this entire time and I for one, feel blindsided. When I see a book with two names on it I have to assume they are BOTH the authors. From what I can see from this book and what I've read from them before- Ashley was being piggy-backed the entire time.

    Really good book, I listened on audio and it really pulled me in! I was rooting for YaYa the whole way through and praying for Leah's demise. Leah showed she was a cold hearted, unfeeling, deceitful person over an over again. I just can't imagine all that evilness stemmed from obsession and rejection. I definitely have to pick up part 2 and see what more havoc Leah can wreak and how things play out with YaYa and Indy. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good urban lit book with street drama, a love story and back stabbing.

    Synopsis-This is a book about a girl named Disaya who takes a struggle all her life. When she was 6 her mom was killed by another prostitute and her dad was accused of the murder and sent to jail. She goes to a foster home and meets a friend. They both end up getting raped and escape.Once they grow up they start to be prostitutes just to survive. She meets somebody that changes her life and makes her want to quit. Classification-This would fit an audiance of teens, or young adults. Some things the book contains wouldnt be suitable for kids, and teens and adults could probably relate more. Kids wouldnt understand this book but teens and adults could probably relate. Critism-This book is good literature. I like how the story makes you feel connected to the characters and yu get to really learn about the characters and compare them o someone you know or yourself. I also like how the book foreshadows sometimes but also leaves you wondering and wanting to read more. Something i dont like about this book is some things dont seem real or like it would happen. Some of the things in the book seem like they dont belong because they get off topic and have no point of being there. I dont like how unnecessary things take place.

    Although YaYa parents lifestyle was not the best I'm sure it would've turned out better then not having them in her life. YaYa and Mona endured so much pain and abuse which caused a spiral of downfalls throughout their life. Everyone desires a chance to make their wrongs , right . Yaya's moment came in Vegas when Indie gave her the courage to change for the better she should've left the game at that very moment. Leah is scorned and possessive , what happened in Leah's life to cause her to be so bitter? Karma is kicking butt and doubling back around .Indie got caught slipping , he broke his own rules he should've never took Leah to his grandmas house or trusted her with his personal responsibility which lead to a baby. She was suppose to be a one nighter which turned to a live in baby mama.I can't wait to read Prada Plan 2, Leah needs to be stopped she's out of control.

Filled with drama on pretty much every page. iHave a few suggestion for the actual medical things that goes on in the book, but that could be because iWork in that field. Overall, great book!

    I read this book from start to finish in less than 24 hours. I couldn't put it down. If you aren't hop to Ashley & Jaquavis, what are you waiting for? Ashley did her thing with her first solo novel. I can't wait for The Prada Plan 2

    DNF. Couldn't relate to subject matter. No judgments --just not interested in pimps and hos. Foolishly thought the story arc was more about rags to riches, revenge and redemption, especially after such a stark beginning with foster care and sexual abuse.

    I know I am late to the game ... I only just recently brought the series and I must say after reading Book 1 and I am sorry that I have not picked this book up sooner! First off let me say that I am sorry that Mona had to go and the way she had to go ... that really hurt me! Next, that good for nothing Leah need to get hers and with the quickness! I have faith in YaYa that she will dish out that serving that only a woman can serve! If you can not tell by the few words that I have written, I will be giving this book a 5-Star rating ... no time to waste, I must dive into the Book 2!Yes, every girl needs a plan!

    This book is a page turner. I first listened to the book via audible, after binge listening to the entire thing I went out to buy a copy, cause as avid readers know there is nothing better than actually turning the page of a book. I have read this book atleast 4 times!!! One of my favorite series !!!! Yaya's character did annoy me at some points, but Indie omg !!! His character leaves a bitter sweet taste in your mouth, but who can resist the Thug in armor ?!

    Ashley Antoinette is talented at developing plots and utilizing twists and turns in a way that is unexpected. I'm usually able to predict the way a book will end, but not with this one. She did a good job of keeping the reader engaged and delivering a story that is opposite of the Cinderella complex. Job well done.
