Novie swore she'd never do two things in her lifetime: head up the family drug trade, or be some man's baby momma. Unfortunately, when she meets Genesis Kane, things don't go quite as she'd planned. Genesis is an attorney with a reputation for being a "piranha in pinstripes," both in and out of the courtroom. With Novie's mother bugging her to help the family or disappear, and her father on a mission to keep reaping land, cars, and more side chicks no matter the cost, Novie is feeling pressured. She makes the decision to dive into even crazier waters, aka the piranha's bed. When Novie gets pregnant, she discovers too late that Genesis is not the man she thought he was. With nowhere to go but back home to the spoiled and petty mother she despises, the last thing she expects from her well-off ex is his blatant refusal to claim or take care of his child. As her list of "nevers" all but disappears right along with her career plans, she makes one vow: Genesis Kane will pay.
