North, South… and a Star.
A six-year war rages in Chicago.
Death is postponed by a debt of gratitude.
Envy encourages the unthinkable.
Hate destroys lives.
Love complicates relationships.
Two enemies wish for the same thing – to take what the other one holds dear. Amid all the chaos—Layla, the perfect bargaining chip for both sides to manipulate.
Divided between two bosses, blinded by her own unfulfilled needs, she ignores the risks and makes an irrevocably dangerous decision.
When the enemy becomes an ally, and an ally becomes an enemy, Layla’s loyalty starts to lose her battle with reason.
Layla finds love where it shouldn’t be. Safety where only danger lies, and happiness in the darkest of places, but in the world of Mafia; rules don’t apply. Inhibitions don’t exist.
Betrayal hangs in the air, and Layla must decipher the havoc of her past and present to find a way to stay alive.
