When love throws feisty Grad student and Single mom off her game, she takes on the most challenging fight of her life – breaking the shackles of abuse to open her heart to the man of her dreams


Twenty-four year old McKenzie has it all . . . Confidence, ambition, intelligence, and beauty. Honorary president of the “Superwoman” club, this feisty single mom defines the term “Strong Black Woman.” Despite the hard blows life has dealt her, she’s risen above a tumultuous childhood, a lonely and painful adulthood to raise a son on her own while she attends grad school and works full time. From the outside looking in, it appears as if she has it all together . . . What could this strong black woman possibly need? Despite all outward appearances, which McKenzie meticulously crafts, she yearns for a love she can believe in and trust. It’s during her Master’s program that she finally finds Christian Malveaux, her soul mate. But as fate would have it, Christian is married. A good guy who married for the wrong reasons--bound by expectation and obligation. Christian slowly wins McKenzie’s heart over during lengthy discussions about mushy classic R&B lyrics and intimate moments doing the cha-cha. They laugh, open up, become close and fall in love. Christian shows McKenzie that she can overcome the hurt, betrayal and disappoint- ments of life and trust in love, trust in a man, and trust in herself. But will she be able to accept his support, understanding, and love and allow him to be for her . . . A Soft Place to Fall.
