Shaneka “Neka” McKinley was in love with Darryl Norris since high school. He was flawed, but she believed, deep down, that he was a good man. They eventually moved in together, started a family together, and she thought for certain they were on track to soon be married together. Until Darryl left her. After Darryl’s betrayal, Neka is convinced that happiness for her was just a mirage and she wasn’t interested in ever being tricked again. And to make matters more painful than they already are, Darryl reappears in her life some four months later, flaunting his new love around their small town for all to see. Now, Neka not only feels betrayed by this very confused brother, but she also feels humiliated. She has two boys to think about, two young boys Darryl fits into his schedule every now and then, and her life, it seems, is destined to never be anything but hardship and struggle. Bobby Cochran, the newly minted head football coach at the local high school, is the kind of sexy, gorgeous man who attracts hordes of females just by walking into a room. Although he appreciates the attention, he knows it is all superficial and he is not a superficial man. When he sees Neka, who manages the diner he frequents, he is intrigued. Because Neka, unlike most all of the other females in town, doesn’t give him the time of day, and seems perfectly content in her own little world. And although Neka is no beauty queen, and no figure 8 like the females of his past, he feels drawn to her. But her shell is thick and her shattered self-esteem is a seriously tough nut to penetrate. But eventually he does penetrate it, as Bobby and Neka develop a bond of trust that soon escalates into a full-blown, sex-charged, all-encompassing romance, with Neka feeling for the first time in her life like a queen, not only in Bobby’s bed, but out of his bed as well. But just when the couple catches their stride, Darryl reemerges and becomes in serious need of Neka’s love and the kind of help that will require her undivided attention. Neka becomes torn between the man she loves and the father of her children, a man she should hate. But will love conquer all, or will her loyalty and those unforeseen circumstances called life cause her to forget her own happiness, and do what will make her boys, by helping their father, thrilled beyond compare?
