DeVyne Marris is a wet dream walking. A chocolate smothered brother, whose ruggedly handsome looks haunts every woman’s fantasies. However, behind his million dollar smile lives a twisted soul. After witnessing his father’s brutal murder, and his mother’s mental breakdown, DeVyne vowed to provide his younger siblings with a better life. At 30-years-old, he is the youngest partner at his law firm and completely driven by the almighty dollar. That is, until he meets Envy Palleman an exotic 27 year old stock broker at Whitman & Clark. Envy is that strong independent woman, but behind her eyes lay many secrets and a checkered past. This seductress is the most intriguing woman DeVyne ever encountered. When their passion ignites, skeletons lurking in the closet threaten to keep them apart. When DeVyne is faced with life changing decisions will it be for love, or for money?
