Overview

Oh, what a tangled web . . .

Roxanne Redman’s devoted husband, Parker, is shocked when he’s arrested for delinquent child support . . . especially since he doesn’t have any children.

Who’s your daddy?

The Parkers’ best friends, James and Serena Carson, are in the final stages of a bitter divorce. Just when James thinks his nightmare is over, he learns his beloved daughter isn’t his at all. . . .

For the love of money . . .

Lachez Baker is a ghetto-fabulous single mother of three who seems to have it all, thanks to money from her children’s fathers. But soon her life of designer clothes, endless parties, and steady cash collides with the man who’s been the target of her carefully crafted paternity fraud.

From author Pat Tucker comes a drama-filled tale of lies, schemes, and consequences as these unsuspecting men discover the importance of knowing the paternity laws in their state.

    Very insightful book

    This book exposes a side of our judicial system that is rarely explored....mens rights in regards to paternity. After reading this book...u ask yourself..HOW could all of these events happen....A true eye opener of how people can derive such devious plans and carry them out no matter what he consequences are.....

    This was a really good read. It was a page turner for me! I am looking forward to seeing more from this author. I was able to identify with each one of the main characters or knew someone who did. Very interesting how things turned out!

    Daddy By Default

    Parker and his wife Roxanne want nothing more than to be parents. However, Roxanne cannot maintain a pregnancy; so imagine their surprise when Parker is arrested for delinquent child support. Simply saying "I'm not the father" isn't getting Parker out of jail.

    James, Parker's best friend, knows Parker would be a great father and can't believe his boy is in jail. James has his own problems. He's going through a messy divorce with Serena and can only see his daughter Semaj on her terms. He has offered to pay child support without an argument. That's until a routine health exam reveals he is not the father.

    Lachez has built a grand lifestyle off of the fathers of her three children, despite the fact that she has no real idea who their fathers really are. Lachez is expecting a financial windfall from her paternity fraud scheme.

    "Daddy by Default" is an excellent story that shows you the importance of knowing the paternity laws in your state. It also gives you a male perspective on the situation, which is rare. I would've liked more on Serena's role in everything and how she handled telling her daughter the truth.

    Must Read!

    This book is not only an eye opener to all men that ae out there in this world, but it makes men question can they trust the women they ' FATHER' children by. How many lies are told, why wait years fir them to find out they didnt father the child or children that is suppose to seen as blessing, but are ccnsidered to be ptoblems, lies, pain and court battles. Its sad that men have to question the women the love if they're carrying their child through the 9 mknths of their pregnancy. Women need to stop thinking for men and taking pass relationships out on a healthy relationship; cause if we can be true to ourselves, how do we expect our children to love, trust and respect the one person that actually wants to take care of his responsibilities.
