AN IRRESISTIBLE NEW NOVEL FEATURING THE HIGH-SPIRITED HEROINE FROM THE BUM MAGNET!
Charisse Tyson is about to say “I do” . . .
But could the smart, sassy, curvaceous bride-to-be, who’s more than paid her dues with a string of worthless ex-lovers, have good reason for second thoughts? What if her fiancé, Kevin Douglass—the gorgeous FBI agent who rescued her from a con artist boyfriend and promptly swept her off her feet—turns out to be like all the others? Rissey’s worst nightmare comes true when, one week from their wedding day, they hit a major bump in the road—a baby bump, that is. Kevin reveals that a one-time liaison with his former FBI partner produced a lot more than a one-night stand.
Thrown into a tailspin, Rissey turns to her beloved top-shelf vodka and her best friend Lamar, who makes no secret of his desire to replace Kevin. With her own family in upheaval when the father Rissey has never known enters her life and Kevin desperately trying to make things right, time is running out . . . will she and Kevin survive the drama and make it down the wedding aisle?
K.L. Brady is a Washington, DC native but spent a number of her formative years in the Ohio Valley. She’s an alumnus of the University of the District of Columbia and University of Maryland University College, and she lives in the DC area with her son.
It’s a Comedy of Errors for the hip-hop generation, as misunderstandings and trickery separate lovers meant to be together but sabotaged by well-meaning friends, jealous ex-lovers, and the destructive secrets of their proud and misguided families. Brady (The Bum Magnet) reprises her sassy, headstrong, successful realtor heroine Charisse, now getting ready to tie the knot with savvy G-man Kevin. But first, the couple will have to face down the myriad roadblocks hurled their way: Charisse’s trust issues, triggered by a bad marriage, her long-missing father, and brothers she never knew she had; a sneaky lover-in-waiting; Charisse’s secretive mom; and Kevin’s conniving baby mama and the love child they share. Charisse jumps to one wrong conclusion after another—offering a proclamation that gives this book its title—in the outlandish, comic, and charming tradition of the Bard himself. Brady updates an old theme for a new audience and finds a thoroughly modern tale of grown-up love, the endurance of friendship, and the strains—and comfort—of family. - Publisher's Weekly
“Brady draws readers in immediately from the prologue and propels them straight through the drama, humor and the various twists and turns that will leave you exhausted but satisfied at the end of the novel. Charisse is not your typical heroine and that may be the strongest part of the story.” 4 Star Review - Romantic Times
