Angelina Rivera was at the prime of her life. Surrounded by white sandy beaches, a good job and a condominium she called home. She relished in the peace Miami, Florida had to offer. But her life took a horrible turn when her mother fell ill; forcing her to leave her idyllic life and return to Taft Projects at New York's East Harlem, a place where memories of abuse, alcoholism and abandonment awaited her return.
Daryl James ruled The Marcy Projects in Brooklyn, NY with his crack cocaine business by his twenty third birthday. He had it all; money, women and the protection of his former crack addicted mother who spoiled him rotten. One fateful night cost Daryl seven years at New York's Attica Correctional Facility. Upon his release his finished manuscript "Betrayal" was ready for print. Back home with his mother who now resided at West Harlem's Foster Projects, Daryl used money stashed from his hustling days to begin his new life as an author and publisher.
From the moment they met Angelina and Daryl began a hot and heavy love affair like either had ever experienced. She stood by him, working hard to turn his dream of writing into a reality. Daryl's rise came at a painful cost when a one-night stand with a street chick named DeeDee became his worst nightmare. Soon Daryl, Angelina and DeeDee were entangled in a deadly game of lust, betrayal and murder; sending Angelina into a world of despair like she never imagined.
