Publisher's Summary

They beat the odds and turned their lives around. But now, three best friends will go head-to-head with ambition, deception - and each other....

Derrick. Ricky. Jamal. One's responsible; one's still a player; one's upwardly-mobile. Sentenced to the Branch Avenue Boys' Youth Institute at 12, they grabbed the chance for better futures. They stayed tight even when their lives diverged - but the times...they are a-changing. 

New deputy mayor Jamal is anti-corruption, which means severing ties with Ricky, now a "criminally-adjacent" businessman. But political power plays and unrequited love will lead Jamal to a lethal choice....

Ricky doesn't mind running a front for DC's biggest drug dealer, but when he pursues a sexy customer at his strip club and discovers she's a cop, any wrong move could end Ricky's good times permanently....

Now the Institute's new leader, Derrick is torn between his job and his fiancee, Melissa. But when a cute new instructor who supports him and his mission arrives, he wonders if he should leave Melissa behind, not the Institute. However, this dilemma is nothing compared to a problem brewing right under his nose, and the fallout will strike at the heart of the three friends' bond - and put more than their survival on the line....

Really!!!

This book could had more. It actually ended without an ending. Can’t follow characters. She can start telling the story of one and maybe that would make her reading bearable.

Perfect performance!

I have already read this book but I like to get the audio too so I can listen as I read along. Really perfect performance of this title. Got lost in the story and the narrator didn't take away from that.
