He took Lenise’s hand and press the envelope into her palm.
Examining it, Lenise flipped it over. “What’s in here?”
He lifted an eyebrow. “Babysitting money.”
Lenise squinted and pushed it back into his hand. “This isn’t necessary. If I want to go out, I can pay my own sitter.”
Cole raised a hand to his face. He stroked his freshly trimmed chin hair. “Yeah, but if I overpay her, she’ll be more inclined to be willing to sit for you again.” He put the card on the hall table.
Lenise cocked her head. He was a man who was used to getting what he wanted. That was obvious. “How can you be sure you’ll want to take me out again?”
He released a breath and took her hand. “I knew I wanted another date when you opened the door.”
About the Book:
Homeless! Lenise Reid never thought that would be her story.
Widowed with a baby, Lenise was making it work as a single mother until a fraudulent transaction wipes out her balance at the bank leaving her with no money. Living paycheck to paycheck takes on new meaning as her world is turned upside down, and she ends up sleeping in her car.
Cole Bennett’s first date with Lenise was all he needed to know she was a woman he wanted to pursue, so when she ghosts him, he goes on a mission to find out why. What he finds is a woman so wounded that even in her most desperate state she struggles with his charity.
Cole has more to give than Lenise knows how to receive. Will past hurt keep her from accepting the most precious gift God has to offer?
