The Plastic Face by JESSie NW
Jessie Solomon grew up with parents who enjoyed a strong, stable relationship that outlasted most connections. So why was the oldest of their three daughters flailing through her life, completely unstable? Why couldn’t she see the forest for the trees? Her two sisters, Jelly and Jerry, were progressing and succeeding in life with few issues; but at every turn, Jessie seemed to drive herself into one brick wall after another. When would her life come together? Would she ever live happily ever after?
Darren, tall dark and full of wonder, swaggered into her life, wanting to right all the wrongs that she encountered. He wanted to be better than the husband she lost in an ATM robbery. However, he consistently fell short of every target he aimed for to impress her. Darren had his own past to sort out, and as long as he kept his secrets she would love, respect and trust him.
The one thing that held his attention was her amazing smile. Despite how hectic or chaotic either of their lives became, her smile knocked him off his feet. Her single dimple drew Darren in to her world – with no escape.
They wanted to make a life that outsiders would envy and mimic. Darren could not understand how Jessica could smile, no matter how dire the situation or circumstances. Jessie was an enigma. Darren loved her but he just could not figure out who or what she really was, or what she really wanted.
Unfortunately, that made two of them.
