In Love With The Hood In Him
Since she was a teenager, Biyou has had a thing for bad boys, despite her sheltered and privileged upbringing. After a few failed relationships, she finds solace in the arms of the ultimate bad boy – Kinkaid Washington, one of Atlanta’s biggest dope dealers. To Biyou, Kinkaid is more than just a drug dealer, though. He’s loving, attentive, and supportive of her dreams. One thing she doesn’t know is that he’s also a cheater. Eventually she finds out and her perfect image of Kinkaid quickly diminishes.
Kinkaid runs the streets of Atlanta with his day ones Harim, and Jaseem. What started out as petty corner hustling turned into a lucrative drug empire. With money, power, and respect comes a plethora of beautiful women too. Unable to control his urges, Kinkaid dabbles a bit. One night of drinking and partying leads up to him sleeping with an ex; an ex that Biyou soon finds out about. Learning of Kinkaid’s infidelities, Biyou catches feelings for someone she least expects.
Jaseem had always been viewed as the clown of the crew because of the hasty decisions he’s made over time. Because of his impulsive ways, having children had never been in his plans. Unfortunately, life has other things planned for him and he has a baby on the way. Refusing to be a deadbeat father, Jaseem prepares for the arrival of his child by purchasing a home and having it decorated through Biyou’s interior design company, LUXE, which, ultimately creates a chemistry that neither of them saw coming.

Inaya loves her husband with everything in her, but as more time passes, she’s no longer willing to stall her dreams to make him happy.
