Blurb: Marina wants a child. Camille wants money for college. Mark has what they both want, but what about what he wants?
Camille has dreams and aspirations, but her gambling addiction threatens her future. With no money to pay for college, the curvaceous beauty hatches a plan to acquire the money, but her foolproof plan will alter her life in ways she could have never imagined.
Billionaire Mark Owens needs a surrogate to carry his child or risk losing his wife. When he meets college co-ed Camille, what may be his only chance of becoming a father is realized, but his marriage is faltering. His wife’s been keeping secrets; secrets that will threaten their marriage’s future.
Marina knows in order to keep her privileged life, she’ll have to produce a child, but when her illicit affair is exposed, the comfortable life she adores is thrown into shambles.
One person stands between her greed and the man she refuses to let go of. That person has to be destroyed, but the outcome she seeks may not be the idyllic outcome she was hoping for.
Review: This was different from the other books I’ve read, most likely because there’s a pregnancy involved. It was short, I was able to start and finish it on the same day but it does tell a full story.
Little side note, I didn’t like the fact that the dialogue kind of danced around the fact that Camille is black. One of the quotes was “She’s rather tan.”
Besides that though, I enjoyed this book and really didn’t want it to stop, though the wife seemed to snap. I mean, talk about overreacting, you apparently didn’t want a baby as bad as you lead everyone to believe if it’s so easy for you to do what you did to her.
I kind of wish there hadn’t been a witness, it would have drug out the book further and created all sorts of drama bit this author writes excellent short stories that I have been happy to read.
The cover is alright, it doesn’t give me any kind of feelings about the book, I’m a little indifferent to it. The pace was steady for the short story and the plot was emotional.
Thank you for reading my review.
