Twenty-six-year-old Kimberly Vanessa Brown is no ordinary single mom. Pregnant with her second child, she's got a career, a college degree--and enough common sense to know that her boyfriend, Malik, may not be ready for fatherhood. But when Malik surprises her with a marriage proposal, it seems that Kim's got her man for the long haul. Or does she?
Despite his honorable intentions, Malik can't seem to stay clear of other women. When Shonda Robinson, the shapely new receptionist at the law firm where Malik works as a paralegal, comes on strong to him, his resolve finally crumbles, along with his heart--and his future plans.
Shonda may not be the most moral--or discreet--person around, but she knows a good thing when she's got it. That good thing is her love for Malik, and she intends to keep it at all costs. Unfortunately, she's not the only who feels that way. What follows is an emotional roller coaster ride of changing plans, changing partners--and a surprising change of heart--as three people wrestle with what's right, what's wrong--and what's real.
