Enter her old high school friend, Tevin Frazier, expressing his willingness to help her with that problem the old-fashioned way.
Lauren dreamed of a life with her high school beau, Gator, but he didn’t feel the same; he went his way soon after he graduated. Accepting this is the only way she will become a mother, Tevin and Lauren enter an agreement and have children.
At a friend’s wedding festivities, Lauren and Gator cross paths again, and he reveals he wanted more than her body, but due to the rampant rumors about her, he didn’t feel she wanted more with him. Now they are both available, Gator offers Lauren the life he wanted with her when they were teens.
Lauren accepts, not knowing that Tevin is interested in being more than just her children’s father.
Captivated to the end!
I was told to read this book because the guessing would drive me insane and it did. It dragged to me in the beginning but soon it became captivating. I held my tablet and read as I cooked dinner. Several times after that gator surfaced I wanted to go to the end and see Lauren’s choice! Good play to keep it to the last word! Well done! I was rooting for him!
