Baker & Taylor
Spoiled by her father and brothers since she had witnessed the death of her mother in a car accident, Babysister, a Black woman in her twenties, sets her sights on her best friend's man and learns a lesson about the value of friendship

Blackwell North Amer
Babysister's got a secret - the tall, well-dressed, and gorgeous Darren Forrest Wilson. For week after glorious week, Babysister hides her love affair from everyone she knows: her doting father, who's spoiled her since she was a child; her resentful older brother, Malcolm; her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Rob; her gossiping co-workers at the bank; her spitfire friend, Lisette (a self-described "goddess of color" from New York); and especially her best friend, Deborah, who just happens to be the woman Darren was dating before Babysister stole him away.
What starts out as lust, though, quickly turns into the real thing for Babysister, and her life feels complete - until Darren begins to have regrets about Deborah. Pure, church-going, and beautiful, Deborah is clearly the marrying kind, and soon the tables are turned. When wedding bells ring, Deborah's the blushing bride and Babysister's out in the cold - until, of course, Darren returns, begging forgiveness. With the love of her life on her doorstep, Babysister is torn between the two halves of her broken heart - the one that desperately wants him back, and the one that's just beginning to wise up.
