Mero Perez is in demand, but he’s very selective about who he lets in his world. For the ones he loves, he honors, protects, and will do any and everything necessary to make sure they live a life of royalty.
After fifteen years in the streets, he’s built a world that allows him to give all things to those he loves and to live without regrets.

Everything that he believed true about his life is slowly changing, including the woman who now holds his interest.

Khaleel finds himself questioning his unfaithful ways for a woman who has very little interest in locking him down. That one fact about her makes him want her more, but between finding out who’s targeting his family and following through with plans to step down and leave the streets, along with his cousin, Mero, will he find time to change her mind, or does he even care?
