When things work in her favor and she is able to kick-start her career again, things are starting to look up for her and her husband, Gun.

Will she be willing to look past a man's wallet and accept true love? Judea has never known the touch of another, but before she can even think about committing to someone else, she needs to learn to love herself. These three ladies are dealing with drama almost as big as their beautiful curves. Travel with them as they ride through this adventure called life.

Summary

When their parents are discovered brutally murdered in a ditch, Kenya and London are left orphaned and forced to navigate the unforgiving streets of Detroit. They might be identical twins, but they are as different as night and day. While one of them fights relentlessly to make it out of the ghetto, the other eagerly embraces true hood life and everything their parents believed in - selling drugs, living fast, and even dying young (if it means getting paid!). Kenya is coldhearted and crazy, just like her Pops. Nothing is off-limits, and no one else matters - not even her sister, if she gets in her way. Blood may be thicker than water, but in one sister's eyes, cash is king - her only true family, and most definitely the head of her conniving household!
