Wow! This book was nothing that I expected, I was judging it by the cover and thought it was just another urban fiction but it was way better that what I expected! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097280059X, Paperback)

Paris Hightower, is a sexy young thang who falls in love with the man of her dreams, Tyree Dickerson, the son of very wealthy Real Estate tycoons. But there’s a problem…. Tyree’s mother (Mrs. Dickerson) thinks that her son is too good for Paris and is dead-set on destroying the relationship at all costs.

After Mrs. Dickerson reveals a long-kept secret to Paris about her mother (Ebony Hightower), a woman that abandoned Paris and her brother more than fifteen years ago when she was forced to flee and hide from police amidst Attempted-Murder charges for shooting Paris’ father --- Paris is left in an impossible situation.

Even though the police have long given-up on the search for Ebony Hightower (Paris’ mother), the bitter Mrs. Dickerson threatens to find her and turn her in to authorities as blackmail for Paris to end the relationship with her son.

Paris knows that Mrs. Dickerson means business – she has the time, interest and money to hunt down her mother. Left with the choices of pursuing her own happiness or protecting the freedom of her mother, a woman she barely knows, Paris is confused as to the right thing to do.

As the situation escalates to fireworks of private investigators, deception, financial sabotage and kidnapping, even Paris’ life becomes in danger.

Just when Paris feels that all hope is lost, she’s shocked when she receives unexpected help from an unlikely source.
