For a lot of little girls their first love story begins with their daddy–33 year old VJ Bassett was one of those little girls. As an only child, she was the apple of her daddy’s eye. As a woman, she will learn that all love stories have a beginning and an end…and in between they’re all filled with laughter, tears, joy, and sorrow. After learning of her parents’ impending divorce, VJ begins to question everything she has ever learned from her father about relationships and love, until she meets Hayes Vishmell, a partner at the law firm where she is an associate.

There’s only one possible problem, though–she’s 19 years his junior. In Daddy’s Big Girl, VJ Bassett struggles with two issues in her life: How should she, as an adult child, be affected by the divorce of her parents and, when you’re in love, does age really matter? Ultimately, she will find out if love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things.      Read an Excerpt
