Last Comes Love is a bittersweet love story that follows childhood friends, Lennox and Rylee, who eventually become lovers.

Please keep this in mind before reading!



Lennox and Rylee sitting in a tree… k-i-s-s-i-n-g. First comes… well, not exactly.

Rylee and Lennox really underestimated their tight bond. Everyone could see it, that special thing they shared between them, but to Ry and Lenny that "thing" was innocent because they were only friends. Besides, the one thing Rylee Daniels found to be the most attractive was success.

As a floor trader for the New York Stock Exchange, money was Rylee's motivation and took center stage in her life. Though she pushed love offstage, she often tried her hand at relationships anyway - several of them - the endings always the same and no less painful than the last. Just when she’s ready to close the curtain on love, it dawns on her - she didn’t have to look very far at all… but will she act too late?

When the Bronx Ballers’ star power forward, Lennox Walker, retired from basketball, his decision shocked everyone. To him, an early retirement from the league in his late 20s was a logical choice. No longer enticed by dollar signs, Lennox chose health over wealth and as a result, love became appealing to him more than ever before. He’s never been in a relationship, never desired to be in one and when he’s finally ready to settle down, Father Time challenges everything.

Best friends since childhood, neither Lennox nor Rylee believed their friendship had the potential to become anything near romantic. But then on Rylee’s 21st birthday, she and Lennox made a pact, a mutually beneficial deal that somehow sealed their fates. Fast forward, 10-years later, when the two are in their 30s, that deal they made will force the inevitable evolution of their friendship. It will also cause a life altering shift in their platonic bond - a shift that will change their lives unfathomably.
