Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite

Late by Dominique Wilkins is a story of a woman whose biological clock is ticking. All of her friends are married with children and, whenever she sees them, she is surrounded by kids. Her friends tell her that she will never have children and she rises to the challenge by getting drunk and having a one-night stand. She falls pregnant straight away. Five months down the line she plans to marry a man she used to date and have the baby as his. All seems well to start with, but soon Nadia gets bored with Keith, his overbearing ways and his mother interfering on a daily basis. Nadia returns to work as a realtor and embarks on an affair with one of her clients until tragedy strikes one day, putting her and her daughter's lives in danger and her marriage in jeopardy.

Late by Dominique Wilson was not bad for a short story. It had all the ingredients - a good story line, characters that fitted, but I felt that, although it was a short story, it could have been a little longer. I found that events moved a little too quickly for my liking. However, that said, for the length of it Dominique Wilkins did manage to get all the important facts into the story. I also liked the inclusion of the Bible passages - each one fitted where it was included and kind of made the story more of a moral tale than a short women's fiction tale.
