A Girl Who Loves To Write. By MissPerfectFlaws Updated Jan 22

Coming from a long line of wealthy, important and successful people, Laila Jenkins has quite the reputation to keep up.

Her life is clean. 

No scandals or anything from her personal life that could tarnish her name.

And that's simply because she has no personal life.

Not having a man or kids didn't bother her before but as she watches all of her friends create their own families, it starts to eat at her. 

That's why when she meets her perfect man at her friend's wedding - she wastes no time. 

Hakeem Morrison has had to work hard for every penny he has owned.

Having to support his family of five, things have always been quite hard for the 27 year old.

Especially when he gets his heart broken by his childhood sweetheart.

Hakeem thinks he'll never be able to open his heart up again until he encounters a woman who piques his interest in every way at a friend's wedding.

Although they have so much in common, little do they know they are from completely different sides of life.

How will it turn out when they both experience a bit of the other side?
