Book Description

Rachael “Baby Girl” Wallace and Aaron Jones are childhood sweethearts headed toward their happily ever after until he dumps her and kicks her out!

Picking up where her ex left off, handsome, charming and debonair Alonzo Banks is just what Baby Girl needs to finally get Aaron out of her system.

When Aaron returns with one thing on his mind (getting his girlfriend back), he and Baby Girl soon learn that his grandmother is dying. As Baby Girl visits Big Mama on what turns out to be her last day on this earth, she is shocked by the older woman’s dying wish: for Baby Girl and Aaron to marry! Hoping to make Big Mama’s last thought a pleasant one, Baby Girl agrees. In turn, Aaron makes it his mission to do everything in his power to make his grandmother’s (and his) wish come true.

Of course, Alonzo has a different idea of whose wishes will come true…

From the Author

"Livin' Just Enough" is my first published work. Originally released October 2003 through AuthorHouse and re-released Spring 2012, "Livin' Just Enough" begins the tale of Rachael "Baby Girl" Wallace, the center hub of the SistaGirlz. When I began writing this story, I had no idea that it would evolve into a series. I was just trying to get those thoughts out of my head and down on paper. As the series continues, you will see how Rachael's life is interwoven into the lives of pretty much everyone around her. Begin your SistaGirlz journey with Rachael in "Livin' Just Enough" as she decides which man she should choose: Aaron or Alonzo.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Emotions December 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
When I purchased this book it was free. I thought the writing was good, but the story was a little unbelievable.

* What man would agree with his woman being in this situation?
* Being out with one man the night before you were to marry another man and allowing him to bring you home was a recipe for disaster (if things didn't happen the way they did).
* At age 21why are you worried about marring not just one man but two.
* How could Ron love her but play her to Napoli?
* Who goes to jail and tries to make the other person forget about them before they know how much time they are going to do?
* Big Mama couldn't pay the telephone bill - but she had a that much money to leave her family?

Baby Girl was confused, but why? She went from being a kept woman to making her own money and having friends.
Ron played her, who is to say in life once a person plays you they won't play you again when times get tight? Big Mama was wrong for making such a crazy will. Baby Girl should have taken door number one and ran.

This e-book was very good. I loved loved loved Baby Girl!! She gets involved with her elementary school sweet-heart, Ron, and to say he spoils her is an UNDERSTATEMENT.She also comes in contact with a club owner named Alonzo who she madly start falling for. I don't want to give away any good detail, but just trust me when I say you should read the e-book!! :) I CANT WAIT UNTIL PART 2!!!!!!!!!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Definite page-turner. I read this book in less than 24 hours. Lea Mishell has a way of drawing you into the lives of the characters. I felt like I really knew these people and that I was a part of the story. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. You will find yourself rooting for both men even if you do have a favorite. I can't wait to read the other stories in the SistaGirlz series.

More About the Author

Author/Editor/Publisher and creator of the "SistaGirlz" urban fairy tale book series, Lea Mishell was born and raised in the suburbs and more recently seasoned by the south side of St. Louis, Missouri. In fact, most of Lea's stories are set in her hometown as she likes to "write where I am", as she says. Although she's been writing since the age of 16, a self-proclaimed Professional Procrastinator, Lea didn't publish her first book until after finding her "Things to Do by 30" list and saw "Publish A Book" at the top of the list! Without a storyline in mind, shortly after turning 30 and in less than 3 months, her first book, LIVIN' JUST ENOUGH, was created. Still within the timeframe of her 30th year of life, the book was published and thus launched Ms. Mishell's budding writing career with the release of ILLUSIONS the following year. Ambition pushed her to try a few short stints as a journalist for local St. Louis publications, but Lea soon accepted the truth that her true writing passion lies with fiction as her stories drew from events in her own life.

In 2010, Ms. Mishell contributed to the book, TALES FROM THE LOU along with Teresa Seals, Mary L. Wilson and Myron A. Winston and in between helping out her fellow authors by editing their work, she's currently working on her first book series, SISTAGIRLZ: AN URBAN FAIRY TALE BOOK SERIES. The first three titles, LIVIN' JUST ENOUGH and ILLUSIONS were released in 2012 and NEVA SAW IT COMIN' in 2013. A revised edition of LIVIN' JUST ENOUGH giving the guys' side to the story, WHAT HE DID FOR HER LOVE EDITION, was also released in 2013.

Ms. Mishell currently resides in St. Louis with her husband and their children.

"I love to write and I enjoy reading my readers' feedback on my work. Good or bad, every review makes me a better writer." -Lea Mishell
