Derrick has forced his thoughts away from Kelli and moved on to visiting his friend, Trevon, who is the backyard with his son, Justin, and niece and nephew, playing catch. Having met Kelli’s daughter, Christina, at the door, he notices the little boy sitting in the middle of the yard, sucking his thumb. A quick question leads to discovering that Kelli’s son is seven months old and more infomation than he can handle…
Man, time flew. When I first met Kelli she was weeks away from giving birth
I studied the yard. “Where is their father? He didn’t come for dinner?”
Trevon let out a false laugh. “The hell if I know. He’s probably at home with his new wife, I’m sorry, girlfriend…that’s if he isn’t cheating on her.”
I whipped around. “Say what?”

About the novel….
When Derrick’s brother drives the family business into bankruptcy, Derrick is left without a job and only one choice: start over. With a new job waiting in Atlanta, the only other thing he’s looking for is a woman who’s willing to fit his no-strings-attached relationship policy. But then he runs into Kelli, a woman with a smart mouth who challenges him in every way. She’d be perfect … if it weren’t for the fact she had kids.
Shortly after giving birth to her son, Kelli’s husband announced that he wanted a divorce. Forced to move in with her newlywed sister, Kelli is faced with raising two young children on her own, finding affordable housing, and landing a job that will pay her bills. The last thing she needs or wants is a man in her life. But when her brother-in-law’s best friend shows up for dinner, it’s impossible to ignore the sexual attraction.
Fate and finances have another plan, though, forcing them into living under the same roof. Despite their differences, Derrick finds himself breaking his own relationship rules. But as his luck would have it, just when he thinks he’s ready to make a commitment, tragedy strikes close to home and, with it, issues from his past that force him to risk it all.
