They say love is blind. Abandoned when her mother chose the streets over motherhood, Aniqa’ is a young woman who’s had enough of no love. She loved her first love, Je’Marcus, past his flaws; even stayed loyal each time he failed to put her first. Giving her all to love him past his pain, Aniqa allows Je’Marcus to become her lifeline-her everything. But when the smoke clears and those blinders come off, Aniqa finds herself living a heart-breaking nightmare.
Hoping to give her baby girl, Essence, the world, Aniqa is faced with a tough decision: move on from Je’Marcus’ abusive love drought, or stay blindly committed to betrayal and pain. There’s just one problem, though: the only way Je’Marcus plans to let her go is through death.
Linc is like a quiet storm: low key, calculated, and the one you never see coming. A man who’s loyal to his paper, he wants no parts of the L word. Determined to take his father’s business to the next level, he plays it close to the chest when dealing with women. Careful to pick the girls who don’t expect a commitment, Linc has one main rule: no chicks with kids, but that all goes out the window when he meets Aniqa. Her natural beauty and heart of gold bring Linc to his knees, and he knows he has to have her—no matter who has to die in the process.
Crushed is what you feel when love don’t love you back, but Linc just might be the one to renew Aniqa’s faith in love when she finds herself Crushin’ on a Boss...
