The Princess & The Thug Volume 2
Rex Mayfield lost his sister Angela to the senseless violence of gangs; her crime? She fell in love with a gangster who couldn’t escape his past. Twelve years have passed and Rex is now 22, working on his Masters Degree in Urban Development and looking for the ones responsible for killing his sister: Meme Hollis and her boyfriend Fish. In order to find the elusive two, Rex begins hanging out in Miles Grant old gang territory in order to find a connection to One Nation and FX Mafia; the gangs that Miles was affiliated with. Almost on the verge of giving up his plot after a year of getting no lead; he’s hanging out on the corner 87th and Stony when a swarm of dudes swinging bats and clubs burst out of the shadows of the night chasing a lone kid: Nick Hollis. Rex has just found his way in but he never expected finding the ones who cost his sister her life would lead him to falling in love with the daughter of his enemy.
Meet Nina (aka NoNo because she never takes "No" for an answer) Hollis. She lost her mother and her teenage years to drugs and the foster system when her mother chose drugs and her boyfriends over her children. Lucky for her she had one person in her life who cared enough to risk his own life saving her from being molested as a child: Miles Loren Grant her cousin. Too bad she lost him to senseless street/ gang violence and now that she’s all grown up she’s got to figure out a way to keep her and her six younger brothers and sisters together and away from the street and thug life that has claimed so much of their young lives. She has committed to being the “mother” to her siblings and refuses to lose any of her children to the street life or gangs. She works the graveyard shift while attending college working on her Bachelors so that she can provide a better standard of living for them.
It’s not easy, but yes it’s worth it; they’re living under one roof as a family since the state of Il awarded her guardianship of them after a long custody battle and establishing that she could provide for them. So why is her little brother Nick Hollis doing all that he can to emulate the thug lifestyle of their dead cousin Miles Loren Grant (aka MM) as a gangster? Nono is determined to save her brother from that lifestyle or die trying. Join her as she searches for a reason to die as she falls in love with Rex Mayfield who's looking for a reason to live as he searches for the killers of his sister who happens to be her mother.
Can love overcome the difference of their two worlds?
One love, two worlds colliding in this crazy space called life. NoNo and Rex will their love be enough?
