Babysister's got a secret: the tall, well-dressed, and gorgeous Darren Forrest Wilson. For week after glorious week, Babysister hides her love affair from everyone she knows: her doting father, who's spoiled her since she was a child; her resentful older brother Malcolm; her on-again, off-again boyfriend Rob; her gossiping co-workers at the bank; her spitfire friend Lisette, (a self-described "goddess of color" from New York); and especially her best friend Deborah, who just happens to be the woman Darren was dating before Babysister stole him away. What starts out as lust, though, quickly turns into the real thing for Babysister, and her life feels complete--until Darren begins to have regrets about Deborah. Pure, church-going and beautiful, Deborah is clearly "the marrying kind," and soon the tables are turned. When wedding bells ring, Deborah's the blushing bride and Babysister's out in the cold--until, of course, Darren returns, begging forgiveness. With the love of her life on her doorstep, Babysister is torn between the two halves of her broken heart--the one that desperately wants him back, and the one that's just beginning to wise up.A love story with an attitude, Please Please Please is as bold, sexy, and hilarious as Babysister herself. Her impudence, her humor, and finally, her wisdom, give a fresh new voice to the value of honesty, friendship, family, and love.
