Francesca Marcelli was married at a young age. She did not love her husband and was only eye candy for him. She decided that she did not need a man in her life after his death and went to school to earn a doctorate in psychology. During one of her experiments she meets Sam Reese. They decide to have a friends with benefits relationship. Not long after Sam's daughter Kelly arrives to live with him, a daughter he never knew he had. Now Francesca finds out she is pregnant and hold off telling Sam. The one thing Sam can not abide by is lies and hidden agendas.
The second book in the Marcelli series. Good story and a very easy read. Francesca always felt like she was stupid. She didn't learn as fast as her sisters, but Sam never treated her that way. With a volatile temper, Sam manages to have some tense moments in the book. Love all the by play with the parents and grands in this book too.
