At the age of sixteen Lakeisha Moss was abandoned by her mother and left to fend for herself on the streets. Within days she's taken in by Ambrianna. During her stay with Ambrianna, Lakeisha is taught the difference between real women and fake women, the difference between a ho and a house wife. She's taught more than anything to ride-or-die. Angel DeAngelo was raised in the streets by neighbors rather than his own parents. With a father in jail and a mother who prostitutes, he brings the money to the table in the only way that he know hows: slanging. A notoriously feared street thug with respect from almost everyone around the hood. With money, power, and hos, he's got almost everything figured out. He's just missing one thing: a down chick. When the two encounter paths, sparks fly and everything is thrown out of proportion, as Lakeisha defies everything and anything involving, Angel. While Angel wants more than anything to explore what could be between the two of them. As a battle of wills begins, danger from another component stirs up trouble forcing the two to work together to confront it, or be killed.
