Love, betrayal, and loyalty on the streets of Harlem.
Daruis, aka Rio, the only child of a singer turned alcoholic, feels he has nothing to hold on to except the idea of escaping the ghetto. Years ago he took a gun charge for a friend and did some prison time. Unable to find a job when he gets out, Rio turns to hustling and finds escape in the arms of his soul mate, Trinity.
When Trinity's mother dies, her abusive father looks to her to play the role of housewife and bedmate. Trinity finds strength to endure in Rio's arms, and together they vow to do whatever it takes to make it out of the ghetto. But soon they find their backs against the wall when the streets come to claim their due.

The love story
No, I was comfortable with breaking up the listening opportunities.
This book had my emotions on an emotional roller coaster. I didn't know if I wanted to laugh, cry, cheer, scream, or cover my eyes. I simply wanted a happily ever after, but there's only one who play a literary god of the hood. Great Job, K'wan!
