FB_IMG_1560461023817The gang is back with more drama than the law should allow! Part one ended with Nessiah being put in a tight spot. Never experiencing what it felt like to have someone who desperately wanted all of your time and attention, she meets Dominick, the business savvy roughneck with an undercover, super fetish for not just any BBW, but one by the name of Nessiah! But of course, his love came with some stipulations. Will she accept his proposal and learn to play her role as the quiet, naïve, side chick, or will she explore her options with Qaseem, the first man to ever break her heart?

Death is lurking in the air when the lifestyle they’ve grown accustomed to is threatened. What will come from the love triangle between Izzoni, Sionei and Shreece? Will Sionei’s blatant dismissal for his feelings have him making the biggest mistake of his life? or will Shreece beat Sionei to the punch by ending their tumultuous affair?

Fed up with his nonchalant attitude and inconsistent acts of affection, Yakhiyah finally calls it quits with Saafiq. But will his deadly behavior have her reconsidering their relationship?

What happens when your plan to love and be loved is derailed by life’s curve balls? Do you give up because it seems impossible to see the rainbow in themidst of the storm, or do you put up one hell of a fight, because you know that once the sun starts to shine, the rainbow won’t be too far away?
