Best Laid Plans by B. Hollidae Book Summary
The Fourth in the African American Urban Romance Series featuring African American Couples
Spring and Bilal Part 1 of 2
After spending all her twenties attending the weddings of her close friends and peers and having nothing but bad luck in the area of love despite her best-laid plans, Spring decides she's done with relationships. She's skipping the love and marriage and headed straight to the baby carriage with the decision to get artificially inseminated.
But at a table in the farthest back corner of the reception venue of her best friend's wedding, she meets the best man, Bilal, and they click over a mutual admiration for art and geek culture.
He's not looking for a relationship. Even if he was, he just broke off an engagement two months before he was supposed to say "I do," and he's not willing to talk about it.
Huge red flag.
It's easy for Spring to overlook, though. Not only is he a nice guy, but he sees past the woman that doesn't need anyone to take care of her but wants to be taken care of anyway.
What they decide to start together is supposed to be casual, giving Spring a chance to enjoy the fun of a relationship as long as it will last before she carries out her baby plans.
However, slowly but surely, the line between casual and serious starts to blur, especially when Bilal offers to take her home for the Christmas holiday to meet the family that fully expects for him to get back together with the ex-fiance he left behind.
