From New York Times bestselling author Mary B. Morrison comes a powerful, sexy story about life’s ups and downs—and the wondrous ways in which love can save the day…

With some high-profile legal trouble behind him and a promising NBA career ahead of him—plus his engagement to his spirited soul mate, the irrepressible Fancy Taylor—former playboy Darius Jones is back on top. But bad news soon threatens to take him right back down.

When Darius’s wealthy stepfather falls gravely ill, the outcome leaves Darius’s mother, Jada, in a deep depression—and deeply dependent on Candice, an opportunistic writer friend who has less than her best interests at heart. But Jada isn’t Darius’s only concern. He’s hiding a potential health issue of his own—one that could cost him his professional future, and his relationship with Fancy. Worried about his mother, not to mention himself, Darius takes a time-out to go back home and care for her. There, thanks to Candice’s nosiness—and negligence—he discovers a shocking truth about the bombshell secret he has been carrying…
