He's beautiful, with gray eyes, tall, chocolate...and he's worth fighting for.
Meet Omari, a gorgeous, hardworking 28-year-old man from the South Side of Chicago. No matter how hard he works at his job at UPS, it is never enough to take care of himself and his long-term girlfriend. After continuous pressure from his older cousin, Ching, Omari finally trades in busting his ass for working under Ching, hustling three major blocks on the West Side.
All is good as Omari juggles work and the drug game - until Ching involves him in the murder of someone who ends up being the governor's nephew. As he dodges homicide detectives, Omari is also trying to dodge getting caught between two loves. He's been committed to Aeysha for seven years but is falling more each day for Simone, an older, more established woman who is at his beck and call.
After years of playing the side chick, Simone finally finds love that she thinks is all her own. Just as she settles in to loving Omari, she finds out about Aeysha, and her desperate mind begins to plot how to finally win her man. Simone's best friend, Tammy, thinks Simone is crazy, and she herself is running from an obsessed ex-boyfriend who is persistent in trying to kill her. Tammy lives in hiding for months as she asks herself this burning question: How can a man love a woman with the same hands that he is willing to kill her with?
As the murder investigation leads to arrests, the walls come down on these lovers. Murder, sex, and indictments lead to unforeseen tragedy and unexpected love.

Kept my interest throughout the book. I could actually visualize the characters as well as events that happened. The narrator took me an emotional ride. Not a boring book! Enjoyed .. looking forward to listening.to.books 2 & 3 which I immediately bought so I have all three books. Looking forward to more from the group...they complement each other.
I enjoyed the feeling of bonding with each character. I was not expecting the book to be as good. I would have liked for a better continuation into book 2. The narrators very great too.
i hate that aisha got killed, but this is the perfect example of what happens when a man or woman cheats on their spouse, its a very dangerous game. but i am looking forward to part 2, i hope that bitch simone gets what's coming to her.
