Tisha Nichols isn’t a morning person and everyone knows that. When she is awakened by a little girl with a brush, Tisha thinks she’s dreaming. The dream quickly turns into a nightmare when the child’s uncle shows up and practically calls Tisha a kidnapper. Good looking or not, Tisha has no problem telling the man where he can go with his attitude. And that destination is a lot farther and hotter than his house across the street.

Jonah Glasse was a total jerk to Tisha, even though she was only doing a favor for his niece, Cami. He quickly changes his mind about Tisha after spending some quality time with her. The hot hairdresser intrigues him and is exactly the kind of woman he wants in his life.

Things heat up between the couple as drama unfolds with Cami’s cousin, ReShaunda. Just as Tisha, Jonah, and Cami start settling into a comfortable and happy routine, their faith is tested. Will they give up on forming the perfect family they could be or will they realize they have Something Worth Fighting For?

ReShaunda is the type of character that will draw a strong reaction from readers. Her views on race and children enraged me so much, I had to actually stop reading and calm down at some scenes. Lena Matthews did an excellent job of surprising me with what the woman would say or do next. Sometimes I forgot Cami’s age because of her communication skills. She was such a cutie pie. One of my favorite scenes was when Jonah went to apologize to Tisha. Tisha was so evil to the poor man that I actually felt sorry for him. His reaction to the situation was so calm and collected that I have to give Jonah points. That was the moment that I started cheering for him to win over Tisha as soon as possible. This story evokes so many emotions, from beginning to end, that readers can’t help but enjoy it as much as I did.
