Overview

How many times do you hear about a woman asking a man to father her child via artificial insemination? The concept is so common until it barely garners any notice. But how often does a multi-millionaire, blue blood, heart throb ask Charlene “Charlie” Meadows to donate her eggs to mother his children? Just once. And it’s enough to make for one hell of a story.

Charlie is a dedicated solider to the cause of the Democratic Party. As an intern, she gives one hundred percent to the Orrin campaign, and after hours, she gives one hundred percent to campaign manager, Sullivan Orrin. Their connection is undeniable, and in her mind, they could be together forever. Only all that changes when the man of her dreams is offered his dream job.

Sullivan “Sullly” Orrin is no regular man. An alpha male from head to toe with the fine finishing of an upper-class family and an Ivy League education, he is set-up and expected to succeed. As a former playboy, he’s not ready when a young black girl from South Florida nearly derails his plans and makes him fall in love. So what does he do? Run. Only he can’t run far enough from true love. It catches back up with him nearly a decade later when he realizes that traditional relationships don’t work for him. Opting to use InVitro Fertilization to start his own family, he has to pick the perfect woman. And there is only one candidate that he has in mind. Too bad she’s engaged.

Now Sully has to grovel and beg to get what he wants, and Charlie is now the successful woman that she always promised she would be. Convincing her won’t be easy, and even if he does get her eggs, will it only make him want more?

Read the fourth book in national bestselling author Latrivia S. Nelson’s Lonely Heart Series, The Contingency Plan for a story that spans nearly two decades between polar opposite lovers who can’t help but attract in a romance that proves that even the best laid plans still have to be tested by life.

    Never too late for true love!

    As a die hard Latrivia Nelson fan, I was waiting on pins and needles for her next release and in normal fashion I finished The Contingency Plan in no time. Now if you are expecting her normal love at first sight, meant to be forever story lines, this book does not offer that and instead pleasantly surprises you and leaves you guessing what will become of Charlie, Alex and Sully! It was a quick read with a good story line and well developed characters. tmrlew

    Hated it

    First off i am a fan of ms nelson, ive liked almost all of her books but this one i hated. While this author is very talented and the book well written the story was just bad. ALL of the characters in this book were unlikeable to the point i didnt care what happend to them and the stuff these characters did was soooo stupid. I even hated the very unrealistic picture perfect happy ending the author penned. This story seemed to focus on morally challenged people. While the storyline IS unique, it wasnt pulled off because the story was just plain bad. The die hard fans of this author will like this story regardless because die hard fans always like whatever their author puts out and while im a true fan of this author im not so biased that i wont say i didnt like a book by her. Ill continue to buy books from ms nelson but she was definitely slippin' with this work.

    Dull, flat, slow

    I'll keep it short, I was not entertained. This story lacked in so many areas. I kept hope alive, but this story never came alive. I like this author and I have quite a few of her books, I just didn't care for this one. I wasnt excited or interested in the characters, and the story wasn't exciting so I lost interest.

    3.5 stars. If this book had more details it would've made for an interesting story. All in all, still a good book.

    Like the author......but

    I really like this author and she has some amazing books but this one is just al'right. It was confusing and the plot was not well developed. Had the potential to be amazing.... but it did not get there. Try "The Grunt" ..... so much better

    This author is versatile! This novel was very different to what she normally writes but was just as good even better than some. I enjoyed the book althoigh it was 150 pages you felt like it was actually more due to the length of the page. Lavitra Nelson Iam certainly going to continue to read your work.

    Ummm

    I don't know quite what to think and maybe I am posting too soon after reading. Good news I read the book in one day so that is super positive. It was not at all what I was expecting and I don't know if that is a good or bad thing. It held my interest, flowed beautifully, but by far not your average story. Again that maybe a really good thing. I loved Charlie & Sully their chemistry & personalities, but the storyline & plot was very different. Ms. Nelson is a fabulous writer; hands down. The Medlov Chronicals is absolutely my favorite books EVER! Overall I liked the book, so if you are looking for great writing, vivid detail, intrigue & seriously want to question where, how will this lead & end; this is the book for you. 3 stars for the book but overall a 4 stars because her writing style is so captivating.
