The Best She Ever Had, Book 4

The Gibbons Gold Diggers Series

Cynthia Gibbons is known as the diehard gold digger in the family, but she wasn’t always this way. What her sisters and most of the town of Chesterton, Virginia, don’t know is that Cynthia had fallen in love once but teenage heartbreak made her the ruthless seductress she is today. That old heartbreak and big secrets come back to haunt her when the best man she ever had — in the bedroom and out — decides to move back to Chesterton.

As far as Korey Walker is concerned, he was the one who had been wronged 20 years ago — not Cynthia. But he’s willing to be the bigger man and put all that aside when he finds out that his son and Cynthia’s daughter have fallen in love. Unfortunately, Cynthia isn’t quite as willing to forgive and forget even if her attraction to Korey is still burning hot. When the teens rush to Las Vegas to elope, Cynthia and Korey reluctantly join forces and fly to Sin City to stop them from tying the knot. While in Vegas searching for their kids, Cynthia and Korey spar, hash out old misunderstandings, and remember what brought them together — and what tore them apart. After all these years is Cynthia finally ready to put love before money, and do away with the family rules?
