Layla Powell agrees to be Keenan’s surrogate without hesitation. They have been best friends since diapers and she isn’t one to back down from a problem if she can offer a solution.
What was that her friends keep saying? She shouldn’t carry the child of the man she’s been in love with for half her life? Well, there is a solution to that too…she just hasn’t discovered it yet.
Keenan Myers’s entire future fell apart with one word: terminal. His beloved wife is dying of cancer and all their dreams of the future would have gone with her until his best friend, Layla, offers to give them one back. The tiniest hope restored, Keenan feels like he can breathe again, until he wakes one morning to find his wife gone, having fled rather than let her love watch her die.
Keenan is shattered and needs his best friend more than ever but how can she be there for him now that she is determined to move on.
