Trisha R. Thomas's Nappily Married is the sequel to Nappily Ever After, which is now a NETFLIX ORIGINAL movie starring Sanaa Lathan.

With an unhappy hubby at home, a nanny who's becoming mommy in her child's eyes, while forming an uncomfortably close relationship with her husband, and a deviant at work sabotaging the hospital, Venus may have taken on much more than she can handle.
