Spencer King vows his life to Chicago's Southside gang with hopes of escaping a shattered life, but when he meets Adrienne Jackson, a girl new to the city and the niece of the police chief, she threatens everything he's worked hard for- his rank in the gang, his relationship with his brothers, and control over his emotions.
When Spencer King vows his life to Chicago's Southside gang, he doesn't know-or-care that the new leader has a secret vendetta. Southside is Spencer's family. His only hope to escape a shattered life. What does a little crime matter if it keeps his new family together?
Then, he meets Adrienne Jackson, a girl new to the city and the niece of the police chief, and she is about to threaten everything he's worked hard for-his rank in the gang, his relationship with his Southside brothers, and his control over his emotions.
Adrienne has her own dark secrets that she is hiding from the world so when she is pulled into Spencer's dangerous life, she isn't afraid- she's seen evil before. After some time, Adrienne realizes Spencer is losing himself to the gang, and suddenly their love could be his only saving grace. Unfortunately, it may be too late.
