Barely eighteen, Kanika has everything to look forward to. She's fine, smart, and strong—qualities she inherited from a momma who made sure her little girl had every privilege—courtesy of Tony, one of Brooklyn’s most powerful crime lords. Born to the life, Kanika knows the hustle from the inside out, but her future holds college and some quality time with Tony's second-in-command, Tyrell...

Then Kanika's world explodes in a hail of bullets and blood when a hit takes down both the man who raised her and the mother she adores. Alone, shattered, and possibly a target herself, Kanika lets Tyrell convince her to attend college in Virginia and move in with her birth father. Down South has a whole other rhythm than Brooklyn, and the parent Kanika barely knows is a different kind of mobster than Tony was. Shon is angry and unpredictable...
Determined as she is to make things work, Kanika is equally committed to finding out who killed Tony and her momma. She’s not about to forget Tyrell. But nothing can prepare Kanika for what she's about to face: from temptation to danger to revelations that will call all her loyalties into question—and put her life on the line...

They watched Andre try to talk to two women standing near the dance floor. With the quickness they both dismissed him at the same time. Kanika and Peaches cracked up laughing.

“Andre couldn’t catch a woman wit’ a ten-million-dollar NBA contract.
