They say you can t judge a book by its cover and I guess you can say the same thing about strippers, too. On the surface I m Mo Nique, the hottest stripper dancing at The Pink Palace, but on the inside I m really just Janelle Taylor, a teenage runaway trying to survive in Atlanta. You might wanna call me a hoe but I m the one your man is spending his whole paycheck on! This isn t the life I envisioned for myself but it s the path I was forced to take in order to get by. Nobody saw the real me until I met Tommy, a sexy hustler from Chicago. At first he was just another trick, but for some reason I can t stay away from him. Am I really falling in love with a trick? The closer I get to Tommy, the more I feel like he s keeping something from me. Is having true love too much to ask for a girl like me?
