Damascus by Fatima Munroe

Damascus is the epitome of a wild boy. Parties, alcohol, and sex with whoever he wants, whenever he wants. As the son of a preacher whose flock is the second largest in the country, Damascus splurges on as many luxuries as his heart desires behind closed doors. Until his parents threaten to cut him off when one of his many conquests shows up pregnant with his child. Afraid of losing his inheritance, he does his best to clean up his act. The First Lady gives him one final ultimatum: marry his little plaything or be cut off entirely. Her family HAS to appear wholesome in the eyes of the church at all costs. Damascus decides he’ll settle down and keep his cool… until he lays eyes on the sister of his permanent entanglement. Currently enrolled at an HBCU in the same city as her sister, Badu is a free spirit and the opposite of her twin sister, Bailee. Her sister loved the party life, while she was perfectly content with a few palo santo sticks for clarity and crystals for balance. When her opportunistic sister forces her to come to dinner to meet the man who fathered her child and open bank account, Badu relents to supports her good sis. Laying eyes on Badu, Damascus is smitten. While Bailee was cute, her sister was the yin to his yang, the beginning to his end, the…exact opposite of everything his family believed in. To them, Badu was nothing more than a tree hugging, crystal worshipping heathen whom they wanted no parts of. While her sister was no better, she was the better choice to sit next to the First Lady on the front pew every Sunday. Contrary to his parents’ wishes, Damascus still finds himself falling in love more and more with Badu’s spirit every day. But if he loses control, he could potentially lose it all. In the end, will he choose between his shallow baby mama or the woman he loves?
