Summary
"Every good girl wants a bad boy to be good for her, but some boys are just bad for you, PERIOD. Mercedes Sanders is young, beautiful and very naive. The sheltered, 4.0 GPA student is the poster child for academic excellence in a rough environment. With her ticket punched to one of the nation's most prestigious HBCU's she finds herself caught between a rock and a hard place with her life and the twists it takes. Mercedes finds refuge in her street savvy, best friend named Borace. As a handsome, fearless and educated young gangster his strong physical demeanor makes his presence known in any situation and it's sure to turn heads whether for good or bad. That persona along with being the neighborhood dope boy makes Borace a force to be reckoned with. Being told that he would never make it out of his situation, Bo becomes the literal definition of a 'product of my environment'. Although a man of very few words, he shows that he is about action. Bo wears his heart on his sleeve and when he does speak, he holds nothing back. With a love like no other on the horizon, Bo and Mercedes find themselves caught in a world of trouble. He is willing to put his life on the line to ensure that her future is safe. However, he finds himself at crossroad that he never thought he'd face. As each day passes his legend grows and everybody wants to take a shot at the throne. His lifestyle versus her future put their relationship in turmoil and ultimately test the patience of their bond. Can they stand the tests that come before them or will they allow the past to catch up to them destroying their foundation? Can a gangster stick to his mantra and remain solid to his word? Can a good girl actually change the ways of a bad boy?" -- page 4 of cover
