Morgan has been in love with Shania since he met her 4 years ago. Unfortunately for Morgan he has only been able to Shania’s friend although he is a surrogate father for her son. Morgan is tired of waiting for Shania and is all set to marry another woman when Shania arrives and tells Morgan that she loves him. Morgan hesitates to long and Shania and her son slip away leaving no forwarding address. Will Morgan be able to find Shania and win her back? Or has he lost his chance with his true love.

This story is incredibly odd in structure. Usually the relationship develops during the story but Morgan and Shania are already in love with each other,  they just have timing and communication issues. I didn’t see any real conflicts for these characters until the end of the story. The plot meanders around and good chunks of this story are told in flashback. If this story had started when Shania and Morgan met and flowed from there I would have enjoyed it more, but as it stands this story is awkward and would have ended much sooner if the characters would have just talked to each other. Also, Shania and Morgan’s relationship would have been more understandable to me. In my opinion this is one to skip, the story had a lot of good material but it isn’t presented well and is basically a mess.
