The Man of My Schemes
A NoveleBook - 2016
Having a fake boyfriend comes with a real price. It started with her co-workers and then spread to her sister-friends at church: the "must-have-a-man-marriage-baby-family-right-now-because-you're-not-getting-any-younger" fever. Tired of the merciless prying and invasive questions about her lack of a love life, thirty-four-year-old Berry Jenkins comes up with an elaborate plan to convince everyone she has finally landed the man of her dreams - she fakes it. However, her foolproof conspiracy to pretend she's met the perfect beau turns out to be proof of foolishness as her scheme of a made-up relationship spirals out of control. Only a miracle will save Berry from her fairytale fantasy turned nightmare reality, which only worsens as her web of lies begins to unravel. Facing exposure, Berry fears that the trap she's created for herself is too messy, too tangled - and maybe even too deadly - for her chance at love to survive.
