Picking up where The Million Dollar Deception left off, Freddy Ford knocks on Nate Kenny’s door, storms into the house, and shoots both Nate and his ex-wife Monica. But he doesn’t stop there—Freddy manages to escape with little Nathaniel, Nate and Monica’s adopted son.
Though Nate is expected to survive the brutal attack, Monica is left in a coma. When Lewis Waters—Freddy’s best friend and Layla’s actual father—visits the hospital to see Monica, Nate bargains with him: if Lewis can get Freddy arrested, Nate will give him back his little girl. Meanwhile, Daphanie Coleman, the woman Nate had planned to marry before he sought revenge on Monica, rushes to Nate’s side. By chance, she meets Lewis while visiting Monica’s bedside, and the two devise a plan to both get what they want.
