Cobi Winslow is a gay, educated social climber; Eric Reed, his twin brother, is a career criminal. Separated as children, they reunite 30 years later. A former cellmate of Eric's concocts a scheme to secure a loan from Cobi and he will get his money whether or not Cobi agrees to cooperate. Meanwhile, Cobi needs to come up with some cash to fund his campaign for city council - but in order to inherit his father's estate, he needs to marry a woman. Threatened to be forced apart yet again, the brothers are tested at every turn in this taut drama, told from both points of view.

E. Lynn Harris and R. M. Johnson—-two powerful voices of a generation—-unite with an insightful and emotional project that tackles themes of family, loyalty, and identity.

The untimely passing of the beloved New York Times bestselling author E. Lynn Harris has left fans pining for more. With this collaboration, fans are given the book they've been clamoring to read—-and the book that Harris and Essence bestselling author R. M. Johnson long wanted to write.

Cobi Winslow, a handsome, well-educated district attorney, knows nothing about the life of his estranged twin brother, Eric Reed, a career criminal raised in the foster care system. Following their parents' death, Cobi searches for and finds his brother, hoping to regain lost years.

Meanwhile, Cobi navigates the pressures of society as he lives life in the closet. The stress comes to a head when he learns that in order to inherit the wealth of his father's estate and save the struggling family business, he must marry a woman before he turns thirty-five. The task becomes more convoluted when Cobi's sister proposes to pay Austen Greer, a once-successful and wealthy businesswoman who lost everything in the recession, to be Cobi's wife.

Eric discovers Cobi is gay and promises to keep it a secret. Instead, he entrusts the information to his former prison cellmate, Blac, who endears himself to Cobi in hopes of securing a $150,000 loan from him to pay back a debt racked up by cocaine sales. As the clock runs down both on Blac's efforts to pay his deadly creditor and on Cobi's attempts to save the family company, rash moves are executed, family and friendship bonds are tested, and life-altering sacrifices are made.
