MY DAUGHTERíS BOYFRIEND offers up the spicy tale of an impossibly tricky love triangle and marks the debut of a fresh and provocative new writer.
Tracey Davenport was only seventeen when she had her daughter, Lauren, and has proudly raised her as a single mom. Now that Lauren is seventeen herself, Tracey is pleased to see that her daughter has taken her advice to heart: Lauren wants to wait instead of having sex with Aaron, a college student and her first real boyfriend. But Laurenís decision causes a chain reaction that no one could have anticipated. In a few chance encounters, sparks fly between thirtysomething Tracey and twentysomething Aaron. Coming off yet another disappointing relationship with a cheating bachelor her own age, Tracey is surprised to find that her daughterís boyfriend is mature and understanding beyond his years, and Aaron discovers that his girlfriendís mom is smart, womanly, and, well, very sexy. Eventually, what begins as a harmless flirtation turns into something much, much hotter. And thatís when things really get complicated.
Told in the alternating voices of the three lovers, My Daughterís Boyfriend is full of sharp, lively observations about mothers and daughters, black men and women, and the truth about love and lust. Audacious and compelling, itís the book everyone will be talking about.
