JA'NISE "NISEY" DAVIS' life is far from a fairy tale. And when her soon-to-be husband, Trevan "TC" Clayton, is shot to death right in front of her on the night he proposes to her, her life takes a dramatic turn for the worse. TC's mother gives all her son's worldly possessions away -- including he and Nisey's Florissant suburban home -- to a two-bit con-artist/ex-pimp turned reverend. Nisey is left with no other choice but to move back to the drug-infested Section 8 apartments of St. Louis' JVL.
Stripped of the ghetto fabulous lifestyle, Nisey and her girlfriends pick up the scale and baggies to turn their misfortunes into a fortune. Quickly, she and her clique of "Trap-A-Rellas" become the talk of the Lou, and just as fast as she reaches the top, schemes are set in place to knock her back down.
Ivy and Scotty have been together for five years. Their relationship was seemingly perfect until he presents to her an easy way to get money. She is hesitant until his charm sways her to agree. After years of going along with his plan, she gets tired of the dangerous games they are playing. Her fear is that they would be caught. Scotty promises that they will stop after completing one more job. There is only one problem, when she meets their next victim,Torey, something changes and she breaks the most important rule; do not fall for the mark.
Torey was different from the other men whom Ivy dealt with. She fell for him but ignored the feeling until she found out Scotty's secret. After that, all bets were off. Ivy allowed herself to fall for this man. To Ivy, Torey held the qualities that Scotty did not possess. He showed her how a woman should be treated. He showed her the respect and attention that she was feenin' for.
Now Ivy is confused. Her heart and mind is pulling her in two different directions. Then Torey figures out that the two didn't simply run into each other, but they met on purpose. What will happen to Ivy when her worst fears come to life? Will her and Scotty be able to forgive each others indiscretions, and can Torey find it in his heart to forgive the woman that he has fallen head first in love with?
Which of these two men will Ivy ride for in the end; Scotty, her man of five years? Or Torey, that new thang that has her breaking all the rules?
