In the third and final installment of The Fix Trilogy, two worlds that have been running parallel finally collide.

Persia Chandler has managed to get her life back on track. Things are calm at home, she’s preparing to leave for college, and she is even feeling confident enough to start dating again. More importantly, she’s drug free and plans to stay that way—until Chucky slithers back into her life. He’s determined to make Persia his again, and he isn’t willing to take no for an answer.

When trying to woo her doesn’t work, Chucky plays hardball and gives Persia an ultimatum: go along with his latest twisted plot, or have her junkie past exposed to the new man in her life, Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Vaughn Tate. Fearing that her dirty laundry will damage not only Vaughn’s reputation but also their budding romance, Persia agrees to Chucky’s terms.

Chucky thinks he’s got Persia right where he wants her, but little does he know that she isn’t the same naïve little girl he remembered. There is no way Persia is going to allow him to make her a slave again, even if she has to see him dead to prevent it.
In another part of town, Li’l Monk is discovering that a friend in need isn’t always a friend indeed. After helping his old running buddy, Charlie, out of a jam, he finds himself the victim of a triple-cross when a prominent mobster is found dead and all signs point to Li’l Monk as the murderer. To prevent a war with the Mafia, Pharaoh has passed a death sentence on to his young lieutenant, but he will soon learn that killing the monster he helped to create is easier said than done. 

The cards have all been dealt, and now it’s time to play the last hand.

Detective James Wolf earned the nickname Lone Wolf from his inability to work with a partner. He's a hard cop who doesn't mind bending the rules to the point of breaking them to make a case, which is why Internal Affairs is digging in his backyard, looking for buried bones. People are starting to wonder: Which side of the law is the Lone Wolf really hunting for? His career hanging on by a thread, he needs a major show of good faith to keep employed and out of prison. That's when he gets the call.

From the moment he arrives at the crime scene, Detective Wolf knows that he's in over his head. He's a narcotics detective, called in to consult on a homicide, but this is no ordinary homicide--a priest was butchered and left for dead inside his own church, with the promise of more bodies to follow. The only lead is the killer's calling card: a black lotus flower left at the crime scene. Detective Wolf now has the opportunity to quietly track and stop the Black Lotus before the next victim is claimed, in exchange for wiping his service record clean.

Accepting this case started as Detective Wolf's attempt to get Internal Affairs off his back. But when his hunt for the Black Lotus leads him to a cold case from his past, it becomes personal.

 No Shade: No offense (as defined by the Urban Dictionary). Ex: “Don’t tell her I told you, but your little cousin is a ho, no Shade.” 

Every little girl dreams of a happy ending to their stories; a home, children and a man who loves her enough to share his life and last name. When Billy’s longtime boyfriend Marcus finally pops the question, it’s one of the happiest moments of her life. 
To stand with her on her special day, Billy calls on her childhood friends Reese and Yoshi. Several years passing since they’d last all come together, and some unresolved issues have driven a wedge between the girls, but they agree to put their difference aside for the sake of Billy’s wedding. The truce is a short one when Billy has to decide on a Maid of Honor and both her friends expect the position to fall to them. Just when things seem to be coming together they quickly begin to fall apart, and at a time when Billy is supposed to be basking in the sunshine of her approaching wedding she finds herself the target of shade being thrown from the most unlikely places. 
While Billy is going through her drama, Marcus is dealing with issues of his own. An old crime partner of his blows into town unexpectedly and his presence threatens to destroy the legitimate life Marcus has worked so hard to build. 
Even with the universe seemingly working against them, Billy and Marcus are determined to have their dream wedding, but first they have to survive the nightmare of planning it. 

There goes the neighborhood...again. 
Ke’yoko and Ka’yah are identical twins with two totally different personalities. As young girls they formed a bond that could not be broken. It isn’t until they become grown women that their loyalty is tested by secrets, deception, and lies.

Growing up with a strict and controlling father and a weak and sniveling mother, Ke’yoko’s only goal is to get as far away from them as possible, even if it means leaving Ka’yah behind. Being rescued by Ja’Rel is like a dream come true. Ke’yoko thinks her world with Ja’Rel is perfect until she starts unraveling the truth behind it.

To secure her future, Ke’yoko decides to get into the dope game with her best friend Nadia, who is the breath of fresh air Ke’yoko needs to escape the harsh reality of the fake life she’s been living.  Ke’yoko puts together a crew, all while trying to keep her squeaky clean image.

Ka’yah, the more laid back of the twins, always has her sister’s back, even if it means putting herself and her son last.  Having her hands full raising her young son on her own, she always seems to be in Ke’yoko’s shadow. Just once she wants to come out ahead of her sister, to have something or someone for herself. How far is she willing to go to have that?

In a chain of shocking events, Ke’yoko finds out the hard way that everyone is suspect.
Family and friends mean nothing, and loyalty is just a word. However, Ke’yoko refuses to let ‘em see her sweat. She is determined to put on her game face and keep it moving, but that definitely doesn’t mean things will be business as usual.
