SNEAK PEEK

Nashaun Williams

Nina was dangerous. Not because she knew the game or she moved dope. Nina was dangerous because I had no control around her. The minute I laid eyes on her my dick jumped. I tried to be standoffish and rude to her but it was to no avail. She was equipped with more comebacks than the Trump administration.

After we finished dinner, I suggested playing Uno, just to get rid of the tension between us and hopefully have a peaceful last day in this house before Rah and Giselle came back. With Uno came liquor and with liquor came paralyzed judgment. On top of the bottle of wine that she’d been working on, the Hennessy started flowing through her veins.

A shot for every draw four your opponent threw down. Needless to say, we both were feeling the liquor and her attitude had calmed down immensely. The thing about drinking Hennessy with someone you were attracted to meant that your filter disappeared.

I watched as she tried to stand to her feet and fell back on her butt. She giggled softly and sighed. “I’m done. I am over my limit. Any more shots, I’m going to end up sleeping right here.”

“Do you need help?”

“Please?”

“The woman who doesn’t need help has asked?” I hopped to my feet and walked over to her. She placed her soft hands in mine as I gently pulled her to her feet.

“Only because I’m damn near drunk and my will to fight is gone for the night.”

Her body was pressed against mine, she was warm and soft. Nina’s full breasts grazed my midsection and her forehead rested on my chest as she got her bearings. Once she was stable on her feet she pulled away. “Thank you, and goodnight.”

Hey, reader!

Tomorrow Shenaé Hailey returns with His Loyal Wife!

zwk7mwhxdv3os4mdqqr8

SYNOPSIS

In part one of Logan and Atarah’s story, Her Unfaithful Husband, you were warned to expect the unexpected. Did you heed that warning, or were you caught by surprise at the end?

Hang on to your seats because things are just getting started, and part two will take you on an even crazier ride!

His Loyal Wife follows Logan and Atarah after damaging secrets are revealed. Secrets that have the potential to destroy their marriage before it begins. Fully aware of Logan’s infidelity, Atarah is stuck with the choice of allowing the past to be the past and moving forward with their future… or making an example out of the only man she ever trusted with the gift of her love in the present with no regard for the future.

SNEAK PEEK

Prologue

A little over three years later

Logan stared at his front door until his eyes dried. Blinking them snapped him out of his trance. Lifting his key, Logan inhaled a deep breath and held it – because death felt better than facing his wife after his betrayal. Even though things between Logan and Malaysia weren’t the best, that didn’t justify his infidelity.

What felt good to him in the moment had Logan’s stomach twisting as he slid his key into the front door. Entering his home, his head shook at the lack of warmth from love. From the lack of a scent of food lingering throughout the halls. From the lack of his wife’s voice or presence. Making his way into their room, Logan looked around for a trace of Malaysia, but it didn’t look as if she’d been home since she got off work hours ago.

If she would have stopped by, there would have been clothes, shoes, and beauty necessities tossed all around, but it was just as spotless as it was when Logan cleaned this morning before leaving for work.

Because that was their routine – he did the cooking, cleaning, and serving while Malaysia ran the streets doing whatever the hell she wanted to do.

But still, that was no excuse for what Logan had done, no matter how much he wanted it to be.

Releasing a sigh, Logan licked his lips as he loosened his tie. Sitting on the edge of the bed, he scratched the top of his head, Bianca’s scent was lingering on his clothes. He’d need to get them in the washer now before Malaysia showed up.

For the past six months, she’d been coming home to shower and sleep and leaving first thing in the morning. For the past six months, Logan had been praying every day would be different. That she would one day wake up and realize how she was jeopardizing everything they had by taking him for granted. That he would wake up and realize it was better to divorce a woman he’d fallen out of love with than to suffer in silence for the sake of avoiding public embarrassment.

Unbuttoning his shirt, Logan stood, avoiding his eyes in the mirror on the dresser directly across from him. He pulled the shirt down his arms then lifted his v-neck shirt over his head. His eyes avoided the pictures of him and Malaysia that lined the walls as he made his way to the laundry room.

Once there, Logan removed the rest of his clothing and washed everything together, not bothering to separate the whites from the blacks. If the cold water didn’t keep the black from staining the white, that would be the perfect excuse to throw it all away. At this point, his only concern was removing the remnants of Bianca from his clothing and body before Malaysia arrived.

SAMPLE

Nadia Garrett

So what that Brielle and Wren both had gone behind her back, solicited help from Isabella to push her and Kwame together for three days. Wren’s worry was that one of them wouldn’t make it back from Catalina. She was sure the Kwame’s body would be floating out in the Pacific if all hell broke loose while they were away. It was taking everything in Wren not to let the cat out the bag. Instead of telling on herself she gulped down her glass and stuffed her mouth with fruit.

“You are so skeptical of everything? Why can’t I be smiling because you’re finally taking a break. Especially after working with Kwame for the last few months, I know you need a break from that shit.”

Nadia huffed and cut her eyes over at Wren. “I know he’s your brother and you love him. But that nigga gets on all the nerves that I have. Even the ones I put in reserve just in case I’m feeling patient enough to deal with it some more. Words cannot express how ready I am not to see him for three days. My phone will be off, I will be on island time. So if y’all are in crisis please figure it out until I get back.”

Wren laid out on the floor next to the perfectly folded pile of clothes. After letting a huff escape her nostrils, she looked at Nadia’s facial expression. Nadia’s brows were pinned together. Her forehead wrinkled and she bit her lip uncontrollably. She had all the mannerisms of a woman who was completely smitten and lost in the sauce.

“How does it feel?” Wren asked still studying her face. Nadia placed the rest of the clothes in the suitcase and stood to her feet.

Walking into her bathroom she looked back at Wren laying comfortably on her area rub and looked at the crown molding on the ceiling. “How does what feel?”

“To be the strong one and the one who has it all together?” Wren’s voice flowed from the bedroom to the bathroom.

“You think I have it all together?” Nadia asked her gathering her essentials from around her floating sink. “That’s not the case at all.”

SAMPLE

 From the Author

Shenaé Hailey writes… Because I want you to be completely shocked by what happens in this book, I want to give you a quote that represents part of the theme for the book:

We have all hurt someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. We have all loved someone tremendously, whether by intent or accident. It is an intrinsic human trait, and a deep responsibility, I think, to be an organ and a blade. But, learning to forgive ourselves and others because we have not chosen wisely is what makes us most human. We make horrible mistakes. It’s how we learn. We breathe love. It’s how we learn. And it is inevitable.

Nashaun Williams is the safety net for his family. He will go to war and back to ensure that everyone he loves is protected.

SAMPLE

Nina Jefferson

Nashaun may have been rough around the edges and slightly abrasive but he was nice to look at. I couldn’t deny his intense glare, thick rosewood lips, and tattoos over his caramel skin weren’t enough to make me wonder. I caught myself several times in the last couple of days smirking at the sight of him walking around here without his shirt on, exposing his muscular build. I even picked up on the print that his basketball shorts gave away.  It was only because I was dehydrated and long overdue for something to quench my thirst.

I was so consumed with my thoughts of Nashaun’s body that I didn’t hear him come inside. It wasn’t until his voice rumbled within three feet of me causing me to jump out of my skin when I returned to reality.

“Oh shit,” I screeched covering my mouth and closing my eyes.

His laugh filled the kitchen as I steadied my heart rate. I felt like I got caught with my hand in the cookie jar after I was told not to touch it. Nashaun was off limits, not because of his association with Giselle, but his lifestyle. Getting caught up with him was like asking for heartache. I may have been horny beyond my liking but I damn sure wasn’t going to take a bite of the forbidden fruit.

“I didn’t mean to scare you. All that big shit you were talking the other day, I was sure didn’t shit scare you.”

Third-5/22-Weekend Lust Binge by India T. Norfleet

cdxok1njp1lmct5nwbzc

SYNOPSIS

When what starts out as a weekend getaway to spend with her bestie turns into a full on lust binge, Penelope “Penny” Duncan isn’t surprised to be spinning uncontrollably in sexual turmoil over a man who literally showed her how the right stroke could leave her  in a constant state of uncontrollable euphoric arousal. With her focus now on nothing but the immeasurable pleasure she’d been blessed with, Penelope returns home only to realize that not everything is as it appears and not everyone finds her newfound happiness acceptable…

 From the minute Zamir Majors first caught sight of Penelope, he wanted her and was ready to do whatever was necessary to get her.  It was only a matter of time until he pulled the perfect move to secure her in his arms and his bed. As far as Zamir was concerned, Penelope is already his. It’s not until reality reminds him that not only is his plan dangerously flawed, but Penelope is a once in a lifetime catch, that Zamir is ready to make his move. Unfortunately, unthinkable accusations, seemingly tainted trust, and unforeseen mayhem just might cost Zamir the only the woman who’d ever showed him an untroubled enough view to binge on something much deeper than lust…

SAMPLE

You keep looking me up and down like that though and you gone have a problem on your hands Penny.”
“I highly doubt it. But in the event, I’m mistaken, I know how to handle all my problems extremely well.”
“You ain’t never had a problem like me before Penelope.”
“Maybe you’re right Zamir, but I bet I can still handle you accordingly and with no hands.”
“You should show me sometime.”
“I don’t know Zamir, what if you can’t handle it? After all, I’d hate for you to react prematurely.”
“Penelope, I don’t know what type of man you’re used to but nothing about me or attached to me operates prematurely.”
“Well, until you can prove it Zamir, I’ll keep my suspicions. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m quite famished.”  She smiled as she ran her hand across his arm seductively before easing out of his grasp and catching up to the oblivious hostess.
Their drinks and orders were placed immediately once they were seated.
“You’re a bold woman Penny, among other things.” Zamir observed Penelope in fascinating appreciation. She had his undivided attention and, in more ways, than one.
“You have issues with bold women Zamir? And explain those other things.” Penelope asked with amusement sparkling in her eyes before she severed their heated eye contact between them to take a sip of her ice water.
“Not at all. I’m intrigued by your boldness especially. And stunning, seductive, intriguing, a tease are those other things I was speaking of.” A grin played on Zamir’s lips as flashes of him making Penelope scream his name made his dick jump as if in an attempt to give her a strip tease.
“What makes you think I’m a tease?”
“The way you respond to me Penelope. You’re walking seduction, poetry in human form and all with a level of sexual self-comfort that mirrors my own.”
Penelope was speechless. She hid her shock well but deep down; she was in awe of this handsome stranger. No one had never read her so accurately. The realization made her clit pulsate and pound in her wetness.  Penelope not only had a feeling that this man was sexually dominating in bed, but he could teach her things in and out the bedroom.
 Zamir massaged his goatee with a smirk. He was tickled to the fullest by her speechlessness.

FINAL SNEAK PEEK-SOMETHING DEEPER

Hey, reader!

Tomorrow Ivy Laika returns with Something Deeper and we have on final sneak peek to share with you!

somethingdeeper

SYNOPSIS

Everyone has a breaking point and Kya has reached hers. Having been fed what love was supposed to be by her parents, she chose to stay in a loveless relationship with hopes that it would one day be something more. However, when she gets hit with the reality that her relationship is nothing more than a façade to please the outside world, she feels as though she can no longer deprive herself of something deeper.

Kofi has been Kya’s best friend since the tender age of eight and he has loved her every day since. When Kofi moved back to Nashville, TN after being away for a year he decides that it’s time to finally tell her. The only problem is that he returns home to a broken Kya. He knows that he can’t be the one to fix her because that’s something she has to do on her own. His plan is to be at her side as she does it.

Will Kofi be the one to offer Kya something deeper, or will she continue to live in the superficial love that she has grown accustomed to?

SNEAK PEEK

Kya

“When do you think he’s going to propose?” I almost spit out my water hearing my sister, Candace, ask that question. Three weeks ago, I would’ve been happy to answer that question but now just the thought of it made me sick to my stomach.

“Kya! What is wrong with you?” My mom exclaimed.

“Nothing, I’m sorry. August and I aren’t ready for marriage.”

“Sweetie he is an affluent attorney. You better start getting ready.” Annette Tucker was relentless. Twenty minutes into dinner and I was ready to pull all my hair out of my head due to my frustration.

“The fact that he’s an attorney makes him husband material?” I asked my mother in response.

“What else could you possibly need Kya?”

“I don’t know mom, maybe support for once. What about encouragement, loyalty, consistency, and real commitment? Oh, I don’t know. How about more than what I’ve been getting these past three years?”

“You sound ridiculous!” She slammed both her hands on the wooden dinner table before standing up. She was seated across from me while my dad sat at the head of the table. My brother and his wife who were next to me staring at the food on their plates. My sister and her husband who were sitting next to her did the same. They didn’t look up, but I could feel the pity they had for me in the air. “Can any of those things put a roof over a head? Can any of those things feed you? Can any of those things take you to Paris? Answer me Kya!”

For the first time in my life, it hit me just how shallow I had been to want a love that Kofi and I shared with August. I had always loved Kofi but in that moment, I realized how much he had given to me without me asking. Every single thing I listed Kofi gave to me effortlessly. I was stuck in a relationship even though I had all the reasons to leave. Even now, I was very much aware of how traitorous August had been, but I still stayed. My parents made me believe that I needed him when I didn’t. Kofi gave me all that I would ever need.

My heart was never for August, but I was hopeful that eventually it would be. I was blindly living on a false sense of hope. The hope that August could love me. The hope that I could teach him to love me. The hope that I would miraculously gain the strength to leave a lifeless relationship. My parents had broken me long before I met August. He just spent three years trying to finish the job.

“You know what mom? I’m not doing this with you today. I can’t do this with you guys anymore.” I stood up to leave and as1 I made my way towards the door, I wished that for once, one of my siblings would stand up for me. I silently prayed that my parents would support me for the first time. But nothing came from any of them. I left there knowing exactly what I needed to do.

FINAL SNEAK PEEK-HIDDEN TREASURES

Hey, reader!

Tomorrow Shajuana McDuffy makes her BLP debut with Hidden Treasures, a beautiful nonfiction edition and we have one final sneak peek left to share with you!

IMG_0115

SYNOPSIS

Have you ever battled with low self esteem? Have you ever gone through something so deep that you couldn’t see your way out? Have you ever been told that you were something special? Well, we’re going to get into all of that. It is said that experience is the best teacher. I am a living witness to that. 

Life is full of ups, downs, and bumpy roads. You will just have to go through it with precision. Whether we know it or not, our lives have already been mapped out for us. Our paths have been laid before us. All we have to do is start walking. 

This book gives you a lot of life lessons, experiences, and advice. The intention is to help you and not hinder you. The intention is to be all up in your face and space with nothing but the truth. The intention is to show you yourself. The intention is to help you be better. When we know better we do better. The intention is to encourage you, motivate you and inspire you to change your way of thinking. We are all in this together. One can’t fall without the other. 

SNEAK PEEK

You are going to get enough of trying to take all of these hindering spirits with you. You are going to end up back at ground zero. Everybody is not meant to go where you are going, love. Because of your heart, you want to see everybody win. You want to see everybody eat. BUT…DO THEY WANT THE SAME FOR YOU?

Have you ever wondered why every time something good happens to you or for you, they always have something slick to say? Have you ever noticed that when you are upset about something or in your feelings, they would add fuel to the fire or insult to injury? Have you ever noticed that when things don’t go right for you, they are happy or satisfied?

WAKE UP LOVE!

So what, are you going to starve yourself? Are you going to forfeit your blessings and dim your light for them? Are you going to sabotage your own happiness so they can have theirs? Help me, make that, make sense. Then, you wonder why every time you take two steps forward, you get pulled ten steps back? Peep game, baby! People don’t want you to succeed nonetheless exceed them. They don’t want to see you go no further than them. They are opportunist. People want to always have you in a situation where they can step on you to level up, to climb that ladder.

They have that Esau and Jacob syndrome. Yeah, you know those twins. The one that pulled at the brother’s heel to be the first one to come out of the womb. You know those twins. The one that took his brother’s birthright. However, he bargained him for it because the other was in a compromising position of hunger. You know those twins. The one that stole his brother’s blessing by deceiving their father, with the help of their mother, all because he was her favorite. Now, that’s all the way messed up.

All I’m saying is BE CAREFUL, BOO! Beware of those people you are trying to take with you. They may be plotting against you. Then again, you may be partaking in your own demise. These hindering spirits are not only calling you friend, they are also calling you mom, wife, sis, daughter, dad, hubby, son, bae, brother and vice versa. STAY WOKE!

Don’t let them catch you slipping, love. Don’t sleep on those people either. Never underestimate your opponent!

Jealousy equals haters, and a jealous spirit can ruin a nation.

SAMPLE

The waterfalls of life are not as beautiful and temperate as they may seem.

Stay the course, love.

We’re always looking for something new. Sit your derriere down and get you together. When you are chasing them like that, those are telling signs of unstableness.

An unstable person is not good for the culture, my love. You jumping in and out of relationships is unstable. Stop beginning new ones when you haven’t ended or closed the door to the old ones. You need to beware of the company you keep and influential people trying to detour you. Stop running behind all these men and women and sleeping with them. Stop selling your ass and your soul. That’s exactly what you’re doing every time you lay down with someone.

EVERYTHING COMES WITH A PRICE!

You never know what you’re getting from a person. Stop coveting people. Stop chasing after someone else’s dream and live out your own. Stop chasing after someone else’s spouse and get your own. Men and women lie, so what? That’s nothing new.

JUST STOP WANTING WHAT OTHER PEOPLE HAVE!

You don’t know what those people had to go through in order to get what they have or be where they are. Stick with what YOU’RE used to and what YOU know. If you’re regular and you know you’re regular, quit trying to be mid-grade. If you’re mid-grade and you know you’re mid-grade, quit trying to be premium. If you’re premium and you know you’re premium, stop downgrading yourself.

SAMPLE

Kya

He and I had been friends ever since we were eight years old when he moved from New York.

Kofi was half Nigerian and half Haitian seamlessly mixed into an amazing man. We shared twenty-one years of friendship that never wavered no matter the distance or time.

He understood me like no other person and I him.

Kofi gave me my first taste of real love and I had been yearning to taste it at least one more time ever since then. It was never what he did for me, it was always what he did to me. He did to me what I was waiting for August to do for years. He nurtured me, he motivated me, and he believed in me.

August was beautiful but Kofi was godly.

His rich chocolate skinned beamed like gold. His bushy eyebrows and nicely trimmed goatee sat perfectly on his strongly chiseled face. His low-cut fade was perfectly lined up. His dark full lips caught the attention of every woman that came near him. He was only five inches taller than me at 5’ll but the way he carried his head high while walking, would have you thinking he was a foot taller than he actually was. As he walked towards me, he was captivating.

Find out in Fight for Love.

SAMPLE

Kwame Franklin

Kwame had spent the better part of the night watching her from behind his glass. He did a bit of networking, ate here and there but his main source of pleasure from the night was watching Nadia ignore his presence and do what she did best, work the room and make sure everything was running smoothly. He found himself being jealous of the yellow dress she wore with the split down the middle.

This was the first event where their friends hadn’t shown up. Brielle and Julian were headed on a family vacation and Wren and Roman were enjoying the bliss of being newly engaged. Their presence was missed but it made them keep focused on the event. Kwame was hoping to leave as early as he could. Although he was admiring her from afar, they wouldn’t exchange pleasantries when they were put side by side. And although Kwame had found feelings for Nadia it didn’t fully keep him from satisfying his needs. He was sure that whatever he was feeling for her would soon fizzle and die out because she wasn’t going to give the thought a shot.

“You look nice,” he greeted finally approaching her. Nadia placed her drink down at the bar and gave him a once over before smirking. She was relaxed with knowing tomorrow she would be in a villa on the beach and relaxing. She was willing to be nice tonight for the sake of her peace for the rest of the week.

“Thank you,” she spun around in the stool to see Isabella being nudged towards the stage where the band had been playing soft music all night. “You look well.”

“I hope you don’t have any big plans tomorrow. I’m going out of town and there’s a meeting I need you to take,” Kwame announced pulling his eyes off of her and toward the stage that Isabella now occupied.

Nadia looked over at Kwame and blinked her eyes a couple of times trying to figure out who he thought he was telling making plans for her. “Excuse me?”

In the sake of saving face and not causing a scene because Kwame had she fucked up twelve different way, she let a smile cross her face. It was painful at best but she fought to keep it on her face.

With my hand wrapped around her arm, I closed my eyes as I tried to calm down before I did something crazy. After my sixth time counting from ten I realized that shit wasn’t working. Letting Blake’s arm go, I searched all my cabinets for the biggest bowl I could find. I started to fill it with hot water but then I thought about it, I don’t look good in orange so I went with the alternative.

Filling the bowl up with water and ice I picked it up off the counter and headed upstairs. Kicking the door to the room open, I chucked the contents plus the bowl at them. They both screamed and jumped up gasping for air. I just stared at them trying not to let the hurt reflect on my face.

Never did I expect for my boyfriend of two years to do me like this and with my best friend at that. What makes it worse was the fact that Cris was…….

“Sis, I just want you to know I got your back through whatever.” Blake grabbed my hand and looked down at me.

“I know, and you know I got yours.”

“Good because the way Cris left out of here and the way he was raised as a bitch, the cops might come looking.”

My head popped off her shoulder and turned towards her. She had this nonchalant look on her face like what she said wasn’t crazy as hell. I started to ask her what she did, but the less I knew the better. Shaking my head at her, I got off the floor and headed towards my closet. Pulling my suitcase that was half packed out, I tossed it on the bed.

Turning back to look at Blake, she had her phone in her hands. When she looked up and smiled, I knew we were on the same page. Forget leaving tomorrow night like I planned, I needed to get out now.  Plus, going to Miami early wouldn’t hurt us.

“Our flight leaves in two hours.”

Second-5/6-Let Love Come Through-C.Monetletlovecomethrough

SYNOPSIS

“Can I admit I’ve always found love useless?”

The force of one door closing can cause others to shut and never be opened again. That’s Toni Angelo’s story and she’s staying true to it. At the tender age of sixteen, Toni forms the conclusion that love is useless, irresponsible, and meaningless. That door has closed and if it’s not about money, she’s deemed it unimportant, a joke.

Eskovan Bayer is the exact opposite. He’s running head first towards love with open arms. Growing up with an abusive father and absent mother, love wasn’t in the air, and for that reason he craves it and will do anything to have his own piece of what love has to offer. Even if that means he has to chase it.

Esko and Toni may have a lot of things in common but their view of love isn’t one of them. Toni will run and Esko will chase, but will love finally come through? Find out in book 2 of the love under new management series!

SAMPLE

Laughing to myself, Andre and Dawn took off to the bathroom. Attempting to sit silently was stressing me out. “So now you against relationships and love?” I asked with attitude attached to each word

“Toni don’t start your bullshit with me. I’m against it because I understand that birds of a feather flock together and I don’t want my boy hurt. I can only imagine that bone em and bail is the motto.”

“Did you just call me a hoe?” I asked ready to fight.

“You said it not me,” he responded as I stood to my feet. He stood to his and across the table we engaged in a war of words. I was hurt and baffled by his response and once again my emotions were on display. 

“Wow, I won’t apologize for my honesty or for doing what I want with my body. When you push out a baby, become a woman or have your heart broken by a man then you can tell me how to move. Until then stand the fuck down and enjoy the bone.” 

“Believe me I tried to stand down, but you are like a poisonous vine that stays on the skin no matter how many times you wash it. Maybe I’m wrong for thinking that means something. Maybe it’s foolish of me to want to be wrapped in and a part of the vine no matter what could happen. And I won’t apologize for that. You got me fucked up talking to me like I’m some pet.”

“Esko, you said you understood, and I believed you. Now you expect me to just change who I am for you. So you can have what you want until you don’t want it anymore. I’ve been through that before and I won’t go through it again,” I fussed on the verge of a breakdown. We were getting deep and there was still deeper levels to get to. He had no clue what my life looked like and why I wasn’t for this.

I will never give it back. I will never give it back.

Roman is facing his mistake head first. Wren has to be his.

With family issues stirring, Roman takes a hard look in the mirror and examines his flaws. He is hell bent on getting back in Wren’s good graces and reclaiming his spot in her heart. But first, he must revisit the place where he first became a man to understand the next step of his journey.

Wren is learning how to be alone but her heart won’t let go of the imprint Roman left behind. Leaning on her girls and her family, Wren learns an important lesson in forgiving everyone involved in breaking her heart, including Roman.

Will Roman manage to fight his way back into Wren’s heart round after round or will it be a love knockout before the bell for the twelfth round can ring?

SAMPLE

Roman Daniels

It didn’t matter what he was here to say to her, she wasn’t going to hear any of it. In fact, she started gathering her things as quickly as she could. “Wren.”

“If you aren’t here to by this five-million-dollar house then there is absolutely nothing that we need to talk about.” Her statement was final. She threw her bag over her shoulder and glared at him with her hand on her hip.

“I mean I could. It’s dope.”

“Then cut me a check and get the hell out my face.”

“Is that how you talk to your potential client?” Roman teased but Wren was unresponsive to it. She tried as hard as she could to play dead, dumb, deaf and mute to him. Roman would come back in like a wrecking ball and she didn’t want to feel the pain of losing him again.

“Only that you’re not. A potential pain in my ass yes, client? No. I can’t lock up until you leave so please go.”

Before Roman could walk away, Wren had answered a phone call and strolled out the house waiting for him to leave. What Wren didn’t know was that he had nothing but time and opportunity to get what he wanted back.  She was going to be his again for real, she just didn’t know that. Wren could fight as much as she wanted, she would see.

For the time being Roman backed off and walked to his car. Walking past her, he smirked a devilish smirk that made Wren’s eye twitch. The seed was planted. She would think about him more than she was already.
