Growing up in Chicago, one of the roughest cities in the world, known for its reputation of crime and chaos, Kenesha “Nesha” Killingsworth is fearless. When unforeseen circumstances force her to grow up too soon, she becomes wise beyond her years. Nesha is not your average young female from the streets. Far from naïve, she never falls prey to hustlers. That is until Keonte’ “Keon” Bridges slides in and steals her heart. When the young slick talker first hears about Nesha, he has to have her. He’s intrigued by her entirely as he notices that she’s different from the females he’s used to. She’s worth him putting in the work until she gives in. In the end it pays off and their young love begins. Realizing that being in the streets is going nowhere fast, Keon elevates his game and they begin to live lavishly. As time passes, business is good. As a provider and a young man of success, Keon decides to expand their family. Their first son KJ is born and everything seems complete. Then the unthinkable happens. Nothing will ever be the same again. Nesha decides to take matters into her own hands as she sets out on her mission, calculating every step. Just when she lets her guard down, things take an unexpected turn. Walk with the author as she debuts a heartfelt story of love, loyalty, strength and endurance, inspired by actual events of her own life. You’ll laugh, cry, and at times scream. In the end, you’ll definitely learn the truth behind the old saying, “keep your friends close and your enemies closer!”
