Tomorrow – Cinfully Delicious

Tomorrow, things get sinful with A. Jones’ “Cinfully Delicious”

Cover #14 - A. JONES

Synopsis

At twenty-nine, Angela “Cin” Patterson has more than she ever thought she’d have. A thriving cafe, great friendships and most importantly a love like she’s never experienced. Though cloud nine doesn’t fully depict the joy Cin feels, it’s the best word that defines her happiness. The only problem with clouds is that they sometimes bring rain.

Amad Moore, formerly known as The Playboy, finally has the one woman he’s always wanted. He’s jumped through hoops and knocked down heart walls to get to where he is today… in a fully committed relationship with Cin.

One mistake… one misunderstanding… is not only threatening their happiness but digging up a past that they’d prefer to keep buried. Will Amad and Cin weather the storm that’s threatening their happy ending, or will the past make them both give up on what they thought they wanted?

Sneak peek

Cin

Shaking my head, I asked aloud, “Why, Amad?”

Why?

The song ended and I was still standing there in silence. The problem with breaking things is that it only felt good for the moment.

“Cin!”

I whipped my head around to the garage door that led into my house and saw Melanie standing in the doorway. She slowly stepped out.

“Stop. It’s too much glass.”

“I see that, but you’re bleeding.”

I looked down at my arm. I never even realized I got cut.

The concern that was etched all over Melanie’s face made my stomach drop.

“Cin, what’s going on?”

She looked down and I followed her gaze to the bat in my hand. I dropped it and swallowed. “Just doing some demolition therapy.”

“You don’t demolish your own stuff though, Cin. Again, what’s going on?”

I grimaced as the pain from the cut started to kick in, “Ask your brother.”

Melanie walked over and looked at my arm. Sighing, she ordered me to go in the house. “Let’s go so I can clean this.”

Once we were in the house Mel went to get my first aid kit and my peroxide. She came back out to the kitchen. “Where is your iodine?”

“Medicine cabinet main bathroom.”

I sat at the island in my kitchen thinking about what I just did.

Stupid.

Mel grabbed my arm and put a towel under it. She poured the peroxide over my cut to clean it and then gently pressed around it.

“Does it feel like any glass is in your cut?”

My eyes started to water, not from the physical pain of my cut, but from the fact that my emotional behind really did this. “No.”

I swiped at the tears that started to fall as she poured iodine over my cut then wrapped it in gauze.

When she was finished she cleaned everything up and came to sit down next to me. We were both quiet for a long time. Mel just sat there staring at me before she stood up and pulled me into a hug.

I broke down in her arms and I hated myself for it. I didn’t cry. I didn’t show weakness. This whole thing with Amad was too much from the beginning.

Mel rubbed my back in circles as she held me.

“Cin, what happened between you and Amad?”

Not mine to give – TOMORROW

TOMORROW!!

Chelsea Maria returns tomorrow with “Not Mine to Give”!

Not_mine_to_give

Synopsis

May you ever appear where you are most needed and least expected.

Carefree and living life one color of the rainbow at a time, Jacolby knew numbers like she knew fashion had no rules against color coordination. When a close friend of the family requests her services to uncover stolen money, Jacolby enters a world of past love, hurt, and the unknown. The man she swore never to give access to her heart again is five floors above making slow steps down until both are left to confront the past and decide if moving on together is worth it.

He was unable to love and be loved… or was he?

Paxton and love were like oil and water; they never mixed. Seeing Jacolby after all these years awakened parts of him that he thought were dormant. Refusing to end up more hollow than he already is, Paxton consistently fights his feelings for Jacolby.

They say if you love something let it go. If it returns it’s yours; if it doesn’t it wasn’t. Will this be true for Paxton and Jacolby? After nine years, did their paths cross just for business, or is there a deeper meaning that neither of them could ever imagine?

Sneak peek

Paxton

She needed to leave. Jacolby had to leave. Vacate the building. Vacate my life and never return. I needed… wanted her gone. Three days I’ve suffered at the cost of her. Nightmares intensified. Only slept by the aid of sleeping pills or smoking. No matter how stressed her presence made me, I haven’t feened to touch a bottle of liquor since I laid eyes on her; which was a first considering I drunk myself to sleep for the last six years.

My family hounded me to seek psychological help or to sign up for one of those group meetings that required me to sit in a circle and discuss my issues. It was easy for people to suggest what they feel will help when they don’t even understand the pain and strength it takes to wake up in the morning.

On my way out the office, the other day, Jacolby and I ran smack into each other. My chest to her chest. The minute my body realized it was her hands on my chest as I helped stable her on wobbly legs, my sensors went off. The feel of her touch. Of me touching her. There was a time when she begged me to keep my hands to myself in public. Staring down into those coffee brown eyes, I allowed myself to feel… just for a moment. All I needed was a moment. I just needed a minute.

Skin to skin contact.

Her in my arms.

I needed to feel my home.

The tremble of her bottom lip heated the blood flowing through my veins. My lips became envious of my thumb as I swiped back and forth on her lip. She exhaled and gave me her sweet minty breath; waiting for me to exchange my own with her.

A perfect moment short lived once I realized our hearts were beating in sync. How was that even possible? The groan and look of disappointment on her gorgeous face hit me in the gut the second I released her from my arms. A void felt between the both of us.

Read the rest tomorrow!

Until next time,

Sneak peek

Cin

I sat up trying to keep myself from jumping to conclusions, but how couldn’t I?.

Amad pocket dialed me while he was having sex with a stripper?

There wasn’t a single way I could spin what I heard and come out with a different outcome. So many emotions were hitting me at once. I wanted to cry. I wanted to scream. I wanted to break stuff.

Unfortunately, crying is what gave way. As I laid in bed tears slowly started falling down my face. I thought about how I trusted Amad. How I listened to him. How he did the very thing he never said he would do.

He didn’t protect my heart.

The more I sat there and thought about it the more I became mad with myself. Good things didn’t last for me. Especially when it came to love. So why was this so different? Why was I surprised and why in the hell did this hurt so much?

Because Amad was different…or so I thought…


Find out why Friday!

“The confidence I had to accomplish walking around every day vanished at the mention of Paxton Reid. He siphoned the gas that it took for me to function properly. His alluring eyes ordered my steps simply by a blink. Even in his absence, he controlled the one organ I needed him to return… my heart.” – Jacolby
