OVERVIEW
(from Kirkus Reviews at Goodreads)
When life as a curiously paired, young married couple in California--in the midst of a growing state and national economic crisis--becomes literally unworkable, Rodney, an earnestly toiling, playboy of a husband, unilaterally determines that he and P.V., his ambitious but naive, exotic wife, should relocate to Texas. So P.V., a struggling sophomore realtor and avid foodie, and Rodney, a newly unemployed marketer and sports addict, sell virtually everything they own and embark upon a downsized existence in the heart of North Texas--Dallas. But an eerie and horrifying morning dream that P.V. previously experienced becomes a dark and ever-unfurling, pain-filled prophesy that ultimately threatens the very foundations of their humanity. Sex, depravity, despair, and an uneven pavement of good intentions lead to a black, one-way road with a shocking and hair-raising end.

AUTHOR
Fey Ugokwe
Fey Ugokwe is an attorney, new novella author, and the founder/owner of a socially-conscious media activity. She was born in Washington, D.C., raised in Pennsylvania, and attended both college--where her major was political science--and law school in Massachusetts. Culturally, Fey is the product of a marriage between two foreign students--one from British Guiana, South America, and the other from Nigeria, West Africa. She was taught to read and write at the age of three by her maternal grandmother, a British-trained schoolteacher, and has been writing fiction and poetry since a child. She received her formal training in novel writing, genre fiction writing, contemporary fiction writing, and political fiction writing in Massachusetts, where her professors included renowned authors Joe Haldeman (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), (the now late) Elzbieta Chodakowska (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), and Askold Melnyczuk (Harvard University). Her interests are, namely, in genre, contemporary, and political fiction, and she has a strong interest in uniquely combining the essences of the three, in order to highlight the underpinnings of the human experience. 


REVIEW
This novella is a story of a marriage that was destructive and dysfunctional. P.V., Pallavi Victoria, needed to find freedom from her well to do Trinidadian family who lived in Miami. She went to Los Angeles.  She was 22 and met this gorgeous player named Rodney..  At the young age of 22 she and Rodney married.  Rodney's friends think P.V. is a real fun loving girl. They called her Boozhe P which is  short for bourgeoisie princess.  Rodney calls her Wifey and he is always putting her down. Her mother warned her that Rodney couldn't love her, he beat her and left scars and bruises.  She tries her best with their new life in Texas.That is pretty hard to do when Rodney begins to drink too much and takes drugs.   P.V. makes new friends with Juanita and Georgina.  She has loved to cook and decides to start throwing dinner parties while her husband is out  doing whatever he did with his friends.One night he comes home and finds "Wifey" a little too chummy, or so he thought, with a friend. That's when the final showdown comes in play.  The author takes us through the story of husband and wife where the woman is nothing.  The marriage is built around Rodney's  demanding ways.  The marriage begins with what P.J. thought was love. There is so much tension and discord between then.  P.J. wants to be free but she has difficulty doing anything towards that goal.  She is rather quiet  with all the uproar all around her. A horrifying morning dream set off a dark and pain filled journey that led down a dark one way road that leads to a unbelievable end. The author wrote an amazing book on how different people use their power and how others let them. The author showed how Rodney thought he was the most powerful man by telling P.J. what she could and couldn't do.  That hitting a woman made him a man.  P.J. had the power to get out but she didn't use it.  I'm not sure why.  Was it fear?  Was it lack of strength and willpower? The strength that power gives you is good if it is used in the right way.

I would give this book 4 BROKEN HEARTS.

I was given a complimentary copy of WIFEY by Fey Ugokwe from PumpUpYourBook for my review of which I received no compensation.
