||Having dated twenty-six men in fifty-two weeks, Fancy Taylor wants to settle down. And after a year of living recklessly, she has enough experience to know that if a man is married, he's bad news. Unfortunately, irresistible Byron Van Lee--who has a big car, big income, big ego, and big youknowwhat--neglects to mention his wife and kids until after Fancy falls for him big time and all the way. Determined to make Byron all hers, Fancy dreams up an outrageous scheme to get him to divorce his wife. Meanwhile, she turns to Desmond Brown for a shoulder to cry on. | Desmond, aka Mr. Reliable, has been in Fancy's life for almost three years. He's always there to pick up the pieces or fill an empty Saturday night. Since he's an auto mechanic, he can fix her car too. His blue-collar job, however, means that Fancy is reluctant to let him close enough to even sniff her brown sugar. To Fancy, he's just a friend. To love-struck Desmond, whatever Fancy wants, he'll provide, even if it takes two paychecks. | Now, Fancy is about to find out that the best laid plans will not only get her laid but also knocked up (as in pregnant). Suddenly she has issues. Job issues. Family issues. Love issues. And, haunted by the fear that she's turning out just like her promiscuous mother--the mother who never showed her love or how to love--Fancy has to face the future and some hard choices. Should she reach for yet another falling star-or her best friend Desmond? Seeing her therapist twice a week isn't giving her the answers she needs. Those she can only find in the depths of her own heart... | With its poignant portrayal of the kind of "just friends" relationship nearly everyone has experienced, this tell-it-like-it-is novel traces a woman's personal journey through dangerous betrayals and uncensored passions to the finding of emotional courage...and the true riches of life that money can never bring.
