In this book, you would think you have the ultimate complementation of Donald Goines, Zane, and the mild Terry McMillian. The book is about a family struggling to balance street life, love, and secrets that will eventually surface. The main thing is that when the truth is revealed, does it instantly destroy the family or will they slowly fall apart? The story begins with two brothers who are very close to each other. They are like twins but are also different in their own manner as well. The streets are steadily calling out to them, but so are their women. The women that they connect with slowly change some of their negative views on life to a more balanced and positive way. However, is it going to be too late for them? Will the women instead become more in tuned with the world of crime and violence than become someone who brings about change? Is it the beginning or the end of what they know life to be?
