No Shade (Mass Market)
Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Every little girl dreams of a happy ending: a home, children, and a man who loves her enough to share his life and last name. When Billy's longtime boyfriend, Marcus, finally pops the question, it's one of the happiest moments of her life. To stand with her on her special day, Billy calls on her childhood friends, Reese and Yoshi. Several years have passed since they last came together. Some unresolved issues have driven a wedge between the girls, but they agree to put their difference aside for the sake of Billy's wedding.
The truce is a short one when Billy has to decide on a maid of honor, and both friends expect the position to fall to them. Just when things seem to be coming together, they quickly begin to fall apart, and at a time when Billy is supposed to be basking in the sunshine of her approaching wedding, she finds herself the target of shade being thrown from the most unlikely places.
While Billy is going through her drama, Marcus is dealing with issues of his own. An old crime partner blows into town unexpectedly, and his presence threatens to destroy the legitimate life Marcus has worked so hard to build.
Even with the universe seemingly working against them, Billy and Marcus are determined to have their dream wedding, but first they have to survive the nightmare of planning it.
There goes the neighborhood . . . again.
