Julian Blake is at the top of his game. He’s the first black man since David Dinkins to run for mayor of the city of New York, and he’s got two strong women by his side-his girlfriend, the stunning and fashionable Raja Jackson, who look perfect with Julian in the spotlight, and his closet and most loyal friend, Kelly Taylor. Together, the three live the Manhattan high life, dining at the finest restaurants and enjoying their status as VIPs at every important party.
But when Julian discovers who he will be running against for mayor, a dark secret threatens to reappear, one that could wreck not only his skyrocketing political career but also his sizzling relationship with Raja. As the press closes in, Julian prepares his damage control only to realize that he is in way over his head-and that he’ll have to come clean. Will Kelly back him up on this one like always, or is this secret just too much? And will Raja stand by him, even if his career is ruined? Out of time, options, and hope, Julian prepared for his world to fall apart…but could it be that the answer has been right under his nose the whole time?
