Raevyn Renee’s debut novel explores the idea that love can blossom even among the most difficult of circumstances in the hood.

Riley has been doing her best to raise her cousin Mikayla, even allowing some of her desires to fall by the wayside to make sure Mikayla is okay. Her love life is practically nonexistent, and there are times she doesn't know whether she’s coming or going.

Mikayla’s past has caused her to look for love in all the wrong places, not recognizing that the love she needs comes from within. The mask she wears can only hide what she feels for so long.

Jermaine took over for his mother when his brother became too much for her to handle. Now his brother is determined to spiral out of control no matter how Jermaine tries to steer him otherwise. What Jermaine doesn't expect is for his brother's mishaps to bring someone into his life that he didn't know he needed.

Jeremiah isn't sure what he’s missing, but he knows he can't find it from his big brother. He’s focused on doing his own thing no matter who he disappoints. It isn't until he meets Mikayla that his views begin to change, but unfortunately for him, it may be too late.

Mikayla’s and Jeremiah's troubles seem to get worse without a chance of getting better. However, with everything they’ve learned about one another, this may be the one chance they have to finally get things right.
