To those on the outside looking in, Passion Hill seems to have it all. She's stunning, self-assured and spoiled. She looks and acts like she's living a charmed life. But looks can be deceiving. Passion's life has been anything but picture perfect. In her 23 years, she's lost a lot. At the age of nine, she was left to mourn her mother's brutal death at the hands of her father's enemies. Thirteen years later, she found herself standing over yet another gravesite crying bitter tears. This time, it was her boyfriend, Lorenzo who was stretched out in the casket. He too, was the victim of a vicious slaying.
After facing the tragedy of losing Lorenzo, Passion makes a promise to herself. She's through messing with hustlers. No more misery and pain. She wants to close the door on that chapter of her life and move on. She's managed to put her life back together with the help of her father, her step mother and Lorenzo's best friend, Jinx Waters. For the first time in years, she's actually happy. She's determined to keep things moving in a positive direction by maintaining her stance on not messing with hustlers…until she meets Solomon Kent.
Solomon Kent is everything Passion wants to avoid. He's unreliable. He's cocky. And he's a baller. He's the last thing she needs in her life. But he's also handsome, funny, sexy and GENEROUS. He's exactly what she needs in her life but at what cost?
What's a female to do when her head and her heart are at odds about what's best for her?
