Been That Way [bwwm]
English-born Lana was raised by her mother and step-dad in central London. She didn't come from a poor family, but they were not rich either; classified by many as the middle class. Money was never a problem but growing up surrounded by a majority of white people was difficult, yet Lana made it work. She never was the smartest in class but Lana liked to think that she was getting there. She had plans; finish school, attend university, get a steady job, settle down and inevitably - live happily ever after.
That's until she meets business magnet Giovanni Rossi.
Every girl's definition to tall, dark and handsome. And his bank balance doesn't hurt either. Sexy Italian Giovanni sets his eyes on Lana and the two fall in love within months.
And when two people are in love, they get married - and that's exactly what Giovanni and Lana do. 19 year old Lana hasn't got the, 'Get steady job,' part of her plan figured out just yet but she's got her husband - whose seven years her senior.
Three years later, the couple find out that though love and marriage is a beautiful prospect, it could turn out to also be the worst prospect the two have ever faced.
