Anthony BookMoses Serrano tried to walk away from the street life but family obligation called him back. Fresh off of a five-year prison bid, Dominic Serrano’s oldest son is back on the streets. For the better part of a decade, Moses has been running away from the life and legacy his father has built for him, even getting himself sent upstate to make it happen. Now that he is out with the opportunity to really make a name for himself, the streets of Bankhead, Atlanta, Georgia were not safe. Everything is business as usual until he meets Brianna. Beautiful, book, and street smart, she was not just another pretty face. Brianna could hold her own in the messiest of situations. These two would begin to build a life together when he got the one phone call he thought would never come. At the insistence of his father, and much to the displeasure of his brothers, he has returned. Things are not exactly cordial between Moses and his brothers upon his return but for the sake of the family and once again at the stern insistence of his father, they somehow manage to keep the peace. All is well until all of the niceties go out the window when their father dies and word about Moses’ immediate takeover of his fathers’ organization spreads like wildfire, sides are taken and lines are drawn in the sand. After the boys end up on opposite sides of those lines, all hell breaks loose and Moses must do his best to separate the real from the fake, his friends from his enemies. In the end, will he realize before it is too late that when it comes to business, blood and money just do not mix, and when it comes to the street life, there truly is NO LOVE LOST.
