If you live in Miami, then you know about The Money Team. In case you need a reminder, they are four Jamaican brothers who inherit their billion-dollar empire from their father, Kymani Whyte, a former legendary drug kingpin. Their last name alone ring bells throughout the city. ‘Whyte’ holds so much rank and weight that it is almost a death sentence to have any beef with the Whyte Brothers. These brothers keep their circle tight and make sure not to let any snakes in. Females consider it a blessing to be affiliated with either Staxx, Rich, Paper or Dolla Whyte even if it is only for a night.
Dolla Whyte, the youngest and deemed most ruthless of the four, is considered the most attractive. From the start, he warns women that there are two things he can’t give them – money and a relationship. All of that changes during a morning routine trip to Starbucks.
Dream Washington’s name can be found under the definition of a “go-getta”. Since a pre-teen, she saved every child support check from her father so that she can attend her dream college, University of Miami, thirteen hours away from home. Now a junior in college, Dream is focusing more on obtaining her degree to live the life she wasn’t given a chance to due to her parents’ negligence. She also happens to be the new barista at Starbucks.
When Dolla ends up in her line, their interaction doesn’t go too well. Unbeknownst to her, Dolla is just naturally a “rude bwoy”. That very well may be the reason Dream finds herself attracted to him.
All of a sudden, Dolla finds himself breaking his own rules. Whenever Dream has a problem, Dolla runs to her rescue. Dolla doesn’t know how to describe his feelings for Dream, but he dares not use the L-word. To him, love is only an emotion to describe the way he feels about his family, not a woman.
Staxx is the oldest and runs the empire. There is nothing he loves more than his daughter and youngest brother. As with every man with wealth and power, women are his weakness. Self-control is something that he lacks. Staxx has been married for almost fifteen years to his daughter’s mother, but he hasn’t been faithful for over a decade. His infidelities catch up to him in a way that he never expects.
Meet Shonda, the loyal, loving wife of Staxx. She has rightfully earned the huge rock on her finger after holding Staxx down since they were seventeen. Shonda hardly ever asks Staxx for anything throughout their marriage, but she wants another baby. Staxx, being heavy in the streets and sheets, doesn’t want another kid. The pressure from Shonda causes their marriage to crumble.
Each brother has woman problems, which can easily be solved if the brothers weren’t so set in their ways. Running an empire is already hard, try adding needy women and greedy men to the equation. One thing is for sure, drama is bad for business. Will these Miami boys be able to protect their empire and give their hearts to the women that love them? Or will the brothers fold under pressure?
Sinna’s life is disrupted when her sister’s bad choices put her in an unfortunate situation. Accustomed to cleaning Simone’s messes Sinna willingly accepts guardianship of her sister’s children. As if that pressure wasn’t enough, everything seems to be crashing down around her. Her relationship with Saint seems damaged beyond repair and just as she began to get close to the father, she never knew he’s involved in a shooting that steals his partner’s life. Sinna is searching for protection and stability, will she be able to trust Saint with her heart or will she seek refuge in the arms of another?
