"If you had the chance, unemployed now, to walk off with half a million plus, would you do it?" Max said, "Don't even think about it, okay? You could get killed, you could get sent to prison..." She said, "But what if there was a way to do it?"
Miami, Florida, lose control for a second, you're gone. For bail bondsman Max Cherry, control is slipping away fast. His ex just moved in with some Cuban artist, the mob is into his business, and he's broken the golden rule: never fall in love with a client. Especially one as smart as air hostess Jackie Burke.
Ordell Robbie has made it semi-big, with the women, Mercedes and attitude to prove it. For the giant leap to real wealth, he's using a posse of cracked-up jackboys, and Jackie, the cutest sky smuggler he ever saw. But when Jackie gets grounded, all flights of fancy are up for grabs. Whose rum has the hardest punch?
