Rising to the top of the charts, Desirae becomes famous seemingly overnight. Cars, jewelry, clothes, money—she lives for it all, but a new face in town stirs things up. Her best friend is brutally murdered, and everything Luxury pours into Desirae points her straight down a dark path.
Desirae Fernández is kicked out of her parents’ home in Little Havana on her eighteenth birthday. She has only one plan, and that is to be a grown-up. When her best friend gives her the opportunity to make fast money at Miami’s Queen of Diamonds gentlemen’s club, Desirae dives headfirst into the business and meets a handsome, hood-rich up-and-coming rap label CEO by the name of Luxury. Their attraction to one another is undeniable, but he plays it cool with her until she turns twenty-one.
Messing around one day in the booth at his brother’s studio, Desirae freestyles as a joke. Everything changes when Luxury discovers she can actually rap. With the Monnahan Boyz’s ghostwriting abilities and vision, Luxury transforms her into a superstar
