Camren is what you call a plus-size diva, but she's having a hard time getting her baby's father to love her. When she comes across some devastating news, she runs into the arms of another man-Royal, the brother of her best friend, Jamie. Jamie and Ashaun's marriage is on the rocks because Ashaun had a baby with another woman. He caters to her in every way, hoping she'll forgive him, but she can't get over the betrayal. She longs for her first love, even though she has to pretend she doesn't even know him, out of fear of what her brothers might think. Royal and Jamie's baby brother, Corey, is a wild one. Always hopping from woman to woman, he has a serious temper, and only one person can bring out his soft side-Tee-Tee. But no one knows about their love affair because she's also a member of The Fam, the most notorious drug cartel in the whole DMV. When secret love affairs are exposed and jealous exes can't let go, who will remain?
Cam and Royal are on the ins and outs. Royal is fed up with Koran and Camren's games. Is he willing to throw in the towel? Will Camren figure out who she wants before it's too late? Jamie and Ashaun were getting on the right track until they were startled with news that put pressure on their marriage. Ashaun is tired of being married, and Jamie wants nothing more than to run into Kejuan's arms. But Kejuan is already in a relationship. Would he be willing to leave his girlfriend to rekindle what he and Jamie once had? Corey's with Myla, but he's still in love with Tee-Tee, who has a terrible past that no one knows about. Will she seek help, or would that push her closer to the edge? She's tired of begging Corey for forgiveness for sleeping with Ashaun. Will he forgive her before it's too late? Myla's not willing to give him up-she'll do anything to keep him and Tee-Tee apart. When tragedy strikes, it changes everything. New relationships blossom, relationships and friendships are tested, and in the end, all they all have is love to hold on to. Can it conquer all?
Cam and Royal have come back home-but with extra help, Royal's nurse, Alita. Cam suspects that something is going on between the two. Alita has an agenda to drive Cam away. Will it work? Corey and Tee-Tee have it out, which drives Tee-Tee into another man's arms. Unwilling to give up on Corey, Myla uses the baby she's pregnant with to keep a hold on him. Pushed over the edge with everything going on with Tee-Tee and Myla, Corey does the unthinkable. Jamie and Killa are happily in love until Ashaun interferes and changes the course of their relationship. Quayla comes back into Killa's life to try and mend his broken heart, but the problem is, Killa's not over Jamie. Ashaun doesn't want Jamie to be happy because he's not happy with Cali, so he does something...and it might well get him kicked out of the FAM. Jealous exes can't let go. When tragedy strikes, who will remain in love? Will love conquer all?

She plans to use that money to escape her toxic relationship, but what she doesn't know is the money she stole wasn't his to keep. It was a loan from the Belmonte family, one of the most dangerous families in the heart of the Big Apple. Most children are taught not to play with their food, but Nevahn "Lourde" Belmonte was taught never to play with his money. He comes from a world of trappers and killers disguised as businessmen, so there are no college savings or 401K's, only street money. As the only son of a street god, he's next in line to inherit the million-dollar family "business" until his father throws a wrench in his plans.
