From the outside looking in, one would never guess that Franklin Wade has suffered through his share of traumas at the hands of life and circumstance. From a young child up until his teenage years, Frank struggles to find love and was lucky to find it in Alexandria Ware. While the secretive Frank doesn’t make her privy to his past, he loves Alex in his own way and plans to make her part of his future. Frank is convinced that after five years of being together, Alex is the one for him, but little does he know, she has an agenda of her own. While dealing with Frank’s emotionally unavailable nature, Alex’s love for him is purely conditional and has an expiration date set on whenever her boyfriend is finished stacking his money. Despite her fleeting feelings for Frank, she has no problem using him as an ATM, but when her boyfriend comes up with a plan for the perfect payday for them, will she end up on the wrong side of Frank’s love story?
While Frank is building with Alex, Taiwan is living in Italy with her sugar daddy of over a decade, Romero Santiago. Being the sugar baby of a well-known cartel leader has its perks, and while Taiwan is enjoying the perks of her lifestyle, she finds herself craving more. As she approaches thirty, expensive trips and shopping trips courtesy of AMEX no longer enthrall her the way they did in her younger years.
After receiving a botched proposal from Romero, Taiwan sees an opening to leave her sugar daddy and seizes it, once she’s landed back in her home city. Her heart is telling her this is the best decision to make for her happiness, while her heart is also telling her this won’t be the last she sees of Romero. Any worries she has dissolve at the appearance of Frank, whose crazy demeanor brings about a strong surge of nostalgia. Taiwan’s main reason for leaving the comfort of her Italian paradise is to build a family of her own. Her only worry is that Romero may come after her to take her back to Italy. The question is will she return and accept the security that comes with being a kept woman or chase what her heart desires?
Frank is on high alert when it comes to Alex. With the current stress of his relationship wearing him out, Frank is happy to see Taiwan, who hasn’t changed a bit since they last saw each other. He expects her sudden appearance to bring out the worst in Alex but is pleasantly surprised when she makes a proposition that Frank can’t refuse. Frank is open to the idea of having his cake and eating it too, so open that he can’t see the plan Alex has brewing for the unsuspecting pair. Kharisma has come up with a foolproof plan for the trio to secure the bag and walk away unscathed. The problem is will they be able to, knowing they will leave behind a trail of broken hearts?
Taiwan has finally gotten her freedom and her life back, or so she thinks. After learning more about Frank and his troubled life, she becomes more connected to him than ever. Romero is not one who likes to lose. Romero is not backing down and will do whatever he has to do to get Taiwan back, even if it means taking away the people that she’s closest to.
Frank’s childhood trauma is coming back to haunt him in more ways than one. The last straw is when his trauma causes him to almost hurt someone who he cares about deeply, prompting him to go underground to handle his business and get himself together.
