Tangled web we weave when we deceive....
What are you willing to do to hush co-workers, parents, and family members who feel you should be married by now? How far are you willing to go for people to get out of your love life? When you are single still at 34 years of age, Nicolette (Nikki) Montana was willing to do anything to live up to their expectations.
Nicolette (Nikki) Montana decides to travel to Las Vegas for the unexpected. She runs into a Byron Matthews, who promises to pay for the damage to her shoes on the air flight back home from a facade Las Vegas wedding. Momentarily, when Byron is head over heels with Nikki, his ex-girlfriend Tara shows back in his life two years later with a child. Paternity test is Byron's plan, without informing Nikki until he knows the truth. How long will this secret lasts, especially when Tara becomes Nikki's new manager at her place of employment. Ironically, you want to see a happy ending for Nikki and Byron. However, I hate when men always think they are not the father's to these innocent babies--which may be the case since so many ex's are willing to do whatever they can to grasp on a past relationship that ended on bad terms.
When it starts to get heated up, Byron living under the invisible husband conditions, his sexual appetite based on faulty intentions--unveils Nikki's virginity. I was like--wow there are still women who can hold out on God's true intentions for sex--sacredness is saved for marriage. Not another woman engaging in the lustful appetites of the flesh, and end up with heartache! Finally! Applause for this one.
My only personal downfall when reading this novel, is Nikki starts out on a lie and has a man down for her, then when it unravels a possible child in the picture, she is not willing to stand behind him. Yet, most women will not tolerate a man with a baby outside of their relationship--yet in this case, he did not know until after they were getting serious.
Shelia M. Goss brilliantly writes a witty, heartrending of betrayal-lies-and-deceit, and relationships twist-and turns. This is a must-read! Enjoyed this journey of true love on a roller-coaster of lies and deceit, but still stood out on a test of time. This book was nothing I had expected with the title--thought the woman lost her husband to a tragic accident and felt his spirit around her, boy was I wrong??? You might be too, get your copy today.
