*Unedited, overlook any errors*

When I was finally done, I looked myself over one last time before slowly making my way down the hall. I expected Asia to be in the front room trying to entertain Kane, but she’d left him alone surprisingly. He heard my heels before he saw me, and at the sound of them Kane stood to his feet. I wanted to take him in fully, but the way his eyes took in every inch of me…
“You look,” Kane paused, shaking his head as he took a few steps towards me. “Amazing.”
“Thanks.” My head was lowered as I blushed, but it lifted at the sight of his feet moving in my direction. “You look handsome as always.”
Handsome was almost an understatement. Kane looked good as hell. He was dressed in black from head to toe, his hair was freshly cut, and that stubble was the perfect length to tickle my thighs if he blessed me later on tonight.
“Thank you,” he mumbled, tilting my head up as he lowered his.
Kane wove his fingers through my hair, using it to angle my head the way he liked. His kiss was hotly tender. Lips gentle, kind, and loving as they always were the first time we kissed after a break. His desire seeped into me just as smoothly as his body heat did, and I shivered as I relaxed my body against his.
A quiet growl escaped him as my hand made its way between his legs. I didn’t give a damn where we were, Kane was a need meeter, and every time my pussy was in his vicinity she reminded me of how inconsistent I’d been with taking care of her. With allowing him to take care of her.
Kane’s hand wrapped around my wrist. “You touch me again, we won’t make it to the restaurant before I fuck you.”
He’d said it as if that was a warning. A punishment. Something that I didn’t want. But…
“That’s exactly what I want.”
His eyes darkened as he stepped back. He walked around me, slowly, looking my body over intensely. With each step he took, every lick of his lips, gaze of his eyes, Kane made me hunger for him more. This was a side of Kane that hardly ever came out. The gentleman in him wouldn’t allow the beast out for too long. But every time he did I tried to take full advantage.
“Go get an extra pair of panties and something to clean up with. Meet me in the car.”
Trying to contain my excitement, I walked as briskly as I could without breaking out into a jog. After doing as I was told, I made my way outside to Kane’s car. I found him in the backseat, hand moving up and down his already sheathed shaft. Before I could close the door behind me fully, Kane was pulling me into him with enough force to cause my body to jerk and a soft moan to escape my lips.

Hey, reader!

Here’s a look into this weeks lineup!

First – 1/1 – Just Love Me – Shenaé Hailey

justloveme

Synopsis

Hailey Owens’ life path was planned perfectly. From her college choice down to the flowers she’d have on her wedding day and what she’d name her children. With just a few days left before her thirtieth birthday, Hailey is in a sour mood. Her perfectly planned path has been horribly shattered by fate. Not only is she divorced, but she doesn’t have any children, and she hasn’t put her degree to use since she received it.

Kane Travis has never been one to force anything. He’s preferred going with the flow to avoid disappointment. Right after his thirtieth birthday, Kane finds himself taking inventory of all that he’s accomplished in life. He doesn’t regret much that he’s missed out on because of his laid-back attitude, but there is one thing he’s consistently regretted – not pursuing Hailey as actively as he desired to.

Ten years ago, Kane and Hailey met and instantly clicked. Because of Hailey’s strict plans for her life, she refused to entertain the thought of settling down with any man before finishing college. With Kane believing in things happening in their own timing, he offered what they considered to be the perfect solution – meeting up for Hailey’s thirtieth birthday if they’re both still single. There’s just one problem – life has changed them both… and neither can say if it’s for the better.

Two old friends, one cabin, and zero chances of their lives not being changed. Will their old flame reignite and burn more passionately than it ever has, or will reconnecting be as impossible as capturing scattered ashes?

“So you’re not going to start your practice?” he interrupted, taking a step towards me.

Shaking my head, I checked the time on my phone. This was not a conversation I wanted to have with him or anyone else. How was I going to help others work through their problems and heal when I couldn’t even heal myself?

“Where are you going to stay, Hailey? You can’t stay here.”

I returned my eyes to his, and before I could stop, “I can stay with you,” from falling out, I’d already said it, regretting it immediately when he chuckled and shook his head.

“I’ve set myself up for failure with you twice already. I won’t do it again.” Twice? So he was counting our glorious six weeks together as a failure? Well! “I can put you up somewhere…”

“I don’t need your money,” I informed him quickly, walking past him to exit the room and go back downstairs, “I have more than enough to take care of myself. I wanted to stay with you for a specific reason.”

Didn’t plan on telling him that reason or even saying it out loud, but I also didn’t want him thinking he was a last resort that I was taking because I didn’t have enough money to take care of myself.

“What’s the reason?” he inquired, following me down the stairs. The quicker I walked the quicker he walked, and by the time I made it to the last step he was grabbing my arm and turning me to face him, “Convenient dick? That’s all you need from a man at this point, right?”

Jerking my arm away from him almost had me slipping off the bottom step, but Kane grabbed me, lifted me off the step, and placed me on the carpeted floor before I could even exhale. For a second, the act had me forgetting I was supposed to be insulted by his last remark, but that faded away as soon as his arm unwrapped from around me.

“No, asshole. I wanted to come and stay with you because…”

Second – 1/2 – A Whisper Of the Heart – ASH LEY

awhisper

Synopsis

For an engaged Whisper Sutton, what should be considered the happiest time in her life quickly changes. There’s the successful and charming love of her life along with promises of a bright future.

With feet that are colder than ice about the upcoming nuptials, Whisper finds herself second guessing such an important decision. The heart wants what it wants, but as old and new feelings begin to surface, it leaves her unsure of exactly what that might be.

In this novella, secrets will be revealed, and emotions will be at an all-time high as Whisper struggles with coming to terms with not only the desires of her heart but her needs as well. Will it be the fairytale she so desperately wants to come true, or will a new journey unfold for her?

Please note: This is part one of a two part series.

Sneak Peek

“Hey there, Whisper. What brings you by?”
“Just wanted to speak with that fiancé of mine. He’s not too busy right now, is he?”
Now Whisper wasn’t the type to go around tossing around the fact she was engaged. Not when her relationship was far from perfect. But with women like Karla that she didn’t too much trust around him, she had to make the extent of their bond known.
It was only there for a split second, but she watched the way Karla’s eyes narrowed from the way Beckham had been referred. Even if Beckham had never cheated a day in the relationship, Whisper would’ve always felt like something was going on between the two of them simply because of how she acted. One would’ve thought Whisper was coming to see Karla’s man and not hers from the cold and callous attitude she had.
“As a matter of fact, he is. Meetings all day.”
“I understand. Could you please let him know I’m here?”
“You want me to pull him away from his work so y’all can socialize? I think we both know he won’t be too thrilled about that.”
How do you know what he will or won’t be thrilled about? Whisper thought.
“It’s kind of important. I’ll just be a second.”
“I don’t doubt that it’s important, Whisper. But it’s also not an emergency. That’s the only reason I’m allowed to pull him. You can understand that, right?”
The more she spoke the more frustrated Whisper became. She could’ve completely disregarded Karla and her shenanigans, but if Beckham really was in a meeting, she didn’t want to interrupt him. She also wasn’t about to continue asking Karla to give her a single thing. Not when a few people had stopped and began to stare. Neither of the lady’s voices were loud or even aggressive but the tension was obvious.
“I don’t mind waiting. They have to come out sometime, right?”
“That’s true but that could be a while. I’d hate to see you sitting around waiting. Especially when you look so dolled up. I love the lip color by the way.”
She was taunting her at this point. She wanted Whisper to be discouraged and above all else embarrassed. As much as she hated to admit it, Karla succeeded. There was no need in her trying to keep going back and forth. Karla knew and was smiling, reveling in her petty victory.

Final – 1/4 – My Love For You – Aubreé Pynn

Sneak peek

Jaxon Jones

Running my hand over my face, I stared at the glass of cognac placed in front of me. I had reached a level of annoyance that there was no returning from. Jasmine’s parents insisted that we spend Christmas with them in Charlotte. Personally, I wanted to spend the time with my mother and brother in Davidson. In true Jasmine fashion, she blew everything out of proportion when I told her my plans. To keep the peace, I agreed to spend Christmas day here and then travel to Davidson without her in a few days.

That wasn’t the only thing that was annoying me. Mr. Langston had had several conversations about me making an honest woman out of his daughter. Granted we’d been living together since I officially moved to Seattle. It had its perks. As much as I didn’t want to be committed to her, my options were few. So, I made it work. As far as being happy went, I put that on the back burner. Maybe I’d get another shot. Maybe not.

Scratching the nape of my neck, I missed my dreads. Another vice I had towards this situation. It was one thing to be a black man in corporate America working closely with predominantly white firms. It was another thing to be a black man with dreads. After having security called on me for the third time, I was fed up. Cutting my hair off sent Jasmine and her father over the moon. According to Jasmine, it’s how she always envisioned me. And her father, well, he told me I finally looked like a respectable black man who took himself seriously.

Part of me was ashamed to admit that I’d become their puppet on a string. Always having an overwhelming sense of self-worth when I was with her family. I had the brains and the brawn. It sold me on paper, and it intimidated the competitors, but I felt like I was a slave working for Massa. By Massa, I meant Mr. Langston.

Keisha

I held Shelby in my arms as we slept or rather as she slept.  My body was tripping.  With all that had happened lately, my body seemed to have caught amnesia and not remember who the fuck sleep was.  Sheppard was snoring lightly, but he hadn’t been sleeping well either.  I eased out of the bed and went toward the balcony, just as his phone started to vibrate.  I frowned slightly.  It was midnight.  Who was calling him this time of night?  Well, in Cali it was only nine, so I told myself to stop trippin’.

Sheppard didn’t move to answer it, so I looked at the caller ID and saw ‘Aaliyah’.  That was the chick that had called him when I was inquiring about renting the apartment in South Gate.  She was about to make the hood in me rise real quick.  The phone stopped ringing, then started again.  I grabbed it from the night stand and answered softly, “Hello?”

“Ummm, may I speak to Shep?”

“Sheppard is asleep.  May I ask who’s calling?”

“Who is this?”

“This is the woman who’s asking nicely for you to identify yourself,” I said calmly, although I knew her name.

“My name is Aaliyah.”

“My name is Keisha.  What do you need with Sheppard?”

She huffed.  I wanted to go through the phone on that bitch.  “Look.  I don’t have time to entertain you.  Tell Shep to call me.”

“Hell fucking no.  This is his woman, and he won’t ever be contacting you.  So, gon’ head and delete his number.”

“I’ll wait until I talk to him before I do all that.”

I chuckled, but wasn’t shit funny.  “This how this shit gon’ go.  You won’t get a chance to talk to Sheppard.  That’s my dick now.  You got that?” I asked as I turned to see Sheppard staring at me.

Fuck.  “Keke, who you talking to?”

“Aaliyah.  Would you like to reiterate what I just said to her?”  I asked, holding the phone out to him.

“Nah, baby.  If you already handled it, ain’t no need in me saying that shit all over again.”

“I guess you heard him.  Bye bitch.”

I ended the call, then blocked her number while he shook his head.  “What you shaking your head for, Shep?”

“That hood done come out’chu, Keke.  Let me find out you clockin’ bitches.”

Giana

“You’re cute when you’re tipsy, Giana Belle.” That smooth, baritone in my ear sent chills up my spine and my teeth were clamping down on my bottom lip before our eyes even met. Colt leaned against the bar, filling the space between me and the next empty stool and that tantalizing effect he had on me started taking over me. When he placed one hand on my knee, he sent tingles all over me.

“Well, hello there, handsome.” I pulled him closer to me, mouthing the words, “It’s me and you and we makin’ arrangements,” and he smiled wide. His eyes were just as hooded and desirous as mine felt. There was a hunger in them for me that sent an orgasmic wave through my body I instantly craved more of. He started sweeping his thumb back and forth across the sensitive skin of my inner thigh, staring me down with those big dark eyes of his at the same time.

I swayed my body, boldly taking my fingers and running them through his curly cut like I’d been dying to for weeks. His hair was just as soft as I imagined.

His body responded to my touch with ease, just as I feared. Ownership was in the air, just for him and I. My body wanted to belong to his, yearning for the same thing in return. He licked those juicy dark pink lips and zeroed in on mine. I wanted his lips on me just as much as I wanted to put mine on him.

Jaxon

Kinsley and I were pretty much inseparable and everyone knew it. She was the only person I’d ever come in contact with that knew everything about me. There were things my mother didn’t even know about me that Kinsley knew. We’d been like this since we were in the fourth grade. She was there when my pops died, even when mom took me down to Tallahassee for school. Even if I ransacked my brain there was never a time that Kinsley wasn’t there for me. I loved her for that.

Jehlani

Nolan reached forward and pulled me into him. Thinking he was going to kiss me I closed my eyes and puckered my lips. Only to be disappointed when he placed a kiss on my forehead.

“I’m fine driving myself, Nolan.” Pulling away from him, I tried to get in my car but I was lifted off of the ground and thrown over Nolan’s shoulder.

“Sunshine, I’m not doing this with you tonight.” He placed me down on the ground in front of my passenger side door and opened it.

As he motioned for me to get in, I sat there and stared. Frustrated, Nolan picked me up bridal style and placed me inside of the car.

“He always leaves you behind,” Hendrix whispered in my ear. The rasp in his baritone tortured me beautifully. It was shocking how much control he possessed over me, exhilarating how quickly he arrived whenever I requested his presence. “The neglect only places you in front of me.” This time when he spoke in my ear, I quivered.

“Hendrix. Shut up and kiss me already.” I wrapped my arms around his tall, muscular frame as he came as close to me as he could stand. The moment his lips pressed against mine, I closed my eyes. I swore fireworks went off, relentlessly expressing an earth trembling flutter that his gentle touch overwhelmed me with.

“I’m so tired of this shit.” He huffed.

He always complained about not having me the way he wanted to. It bothered him endlessly. Our time couldn’t be well spent without an inquiry of why I didn’t officially belong to him.

“Don’t do this. I’m not sure how long we have together,” I whispered, moaning through the gentle pecks he placed on my lips and neck.

“Fuck him. I’m here now. Limited time isn’t a concern of mine.”

“Hendrix,” I moaned. I tried to scream at him and shout reminders why it should have been a concern of his, but I couldn’t. Soft kisses to my neck clouded everything I contemplated saying. Quickly, he’d humbled me, bringing me back to my reality when he paused the kisses I loved.

“I’m beginning to feel used.” Whispers in my ear made me moan even more. I tried to kiss him again, but he froze and dodged my lips by turning his head. “You want me or my dick?” he spat.

Wow!

Just when I thought I couldn’t be anymore turned on than I already was, he proved me wrong. Hendrix was undeniably tempting.

“Both?” I questioned, wondering if both was a reasonable answer for him. Like he hadn’t already screwed me in different areas of the apartment I shared with Kingston twice a week, he commented his usual, a clear refusal to screw me in the bed I shared with Kingston. I was fine with that because some things left my conscious intact. Other things not so much!

“You never texted me back,” I heard as the men started to scatter like roaches. Looking around, all the damn visitors went ghost. Only Risha and Dee were left in the pool and looking directly at me with wondering eyes. I shrugged back at them as if I didn’t know what happened.

“I’m sorry I didn’t know I had to,” I replied removing my sunglasses and hat. I tried to keep my stoned face, but I couldn’t as his bottom lip got trapped between his gold teeth. I hadn’t noticed them earlier but now that I had time and a few drinks in me I was noticing a lot that I hadn’t before. His strong hands, even stronger shoulders, and all the gold chains that adorned his neck. He was definitely one fine ass nigga.

“Damn right, or did I scare you?” he asked with his thick eye brow raised. Yes! I wanted to scream but again I had liquid courage, so I sat still looking him dead in his brown eyes and smirked. I was stepping up to the challenge. He wanted me, and I damn sure wanted him. I had no idea what that would mean and after a few rum punches I didn’t give a damn.

“How can you make my trip worth it, Raakesh?”

He smiled and licked his plump lips and grabbed my hand.

Massaging my hand, I moaned, “Hhm.”

Closing my eyes, I enjoyed the gesture. The girls were still looking, and I knew I would soon be answering questions. But for the moment, I would enjoy my long-distance lovers’ hand anywhere on my body. The hands were fine for now, but soon, I wanted them all over. Lost in the feeling of him beside me, I felt my hand land on his lap. Gasping at the size, I snatched my hand back and looked up at him with wide eyes.

“That’s how I can make your trip worth it. Let me be your tour guide.”

12/21 – Until You Came Along – ShanicexLola

“I love him, but I love you too.” —Aumora Puri

Aumora Puri’s perspective of love was black and white until loving two men became her norm. Harboring beauty and brain brought options, and she was unwilling to choose the greater of the goods. Each day, she lived in fear of the inevitable, wondering if she should expose herself or await the universe to reveal her dirty secrets.

Hendrix Turner was a soulful charmer whom she never imagined she was starving for until approached. Handsome with a hustle that could intrigue any woman out of their time, it was hard to turn him down with competence that persistent. Hendrix was aware of Aumora’s role and the way she was playing it coy. He tried to make it easier on her by disappearing from her life to leave her with the one her heart began with, but true love couldn’t be escaped. Aumora was certain he was where her heart would end.

For these lovers, love had never been as perplexed as it was becoming. They learn how complicated things can get when love offers you two roads to travel.

*Please note, this is part one of a two part series that ends with a cliffhanger.

“Greater than loving you, Aumora, I appreciate the woman you are. I’m proud of you,” he whispered and gazed into my mahogany eyes. I swore he looked through me like he knew something. It was only my remorse eating away at me as he continued to stare at me.
He was sincerely in awe of me.
Resting my head on his chest to calm my racing heart, I held onto him as he guided me to the bed to lie down. Each time I closed my eyes, Hendrix invaded my thoughts. I wondered if he’d realized I was missing from his side yet, and if he did, I couldn’t be sure if he’d tried to contact me to tell me how he felt about it.
I kept my phone stashed away when I was with Kingston. Though I definitely had something to hide, keeping our phones at a distance while we spent time together was important to us. We promised to focus on each other when we were together, trying our hardest to limit distractions no matter how much he was on call for his brothers and their family business.
In all, there wasn’t much I could complain about. Kingston took care of us while I worked hard on my personal goals to make it worth his while. There was just something about Hendrix that placed a detour in our growth. I wanted him despite my truth, and I couldn’t help it.
I wanted them both.
Whispering sweet sentiments in my ear as he held me closely, Kingston’s hard dick pressed against my ass, helping me feel secure. It was how we slept every night. I used to feel every bit of content knowing he was near. These days, I just wanted my leg thrown around Hendrix’s waist. His touch brought more comfort.
Overthinking every piece of my position with both men, I prayed for a sign until I drifted asleep to the sound of Hendrix’s baritone in my head. It drowned out whatever Kingston was saying to me as he held me in his arms.
Hendrix’s voice was the loudest thing in my head.

Synopsis

Have you ever met someone who hated Christmas so much he could be classified as the modern-day Grinch?

Meet Nolan Scott a successful owner of a multi-million-dollar marketing farm.

Finding the perfect person he thought would bring the light back to Nolan’s life, he hires the co-owner of J&J Designs.

Jehlani Wilson loves everything Christmas. With one goal in mind, she sets her sights on nailing the perfect Christmas Gala for J&J Designs. There’s only one problem – Nolan Scott. With her eyes set on a new challenge, Jehlani puts together a plan to kill two birds with one stone.

Will Nolan finally let go of the hurt and commit to the promise he made his mom? Or will he allow it to continue to control him and potentially miss out on something truly special?

Take this journey as we find out if Jehlani can bring the light of Christmas back into Nolan’s life.

The rest of the morning after the meeting with Jehlani went by extremely slow. She crowded my mind, invaded my thoughts to the point where I could remember every little detail about her. From the way her forehead would crease when my actions got to her to the way her eyes lit up at the thought of Christmas. Even her smell. She smelled like vanilla and honey.  – Nolan

Buckle up for the ride!
