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.
— Nayyirah Waheed and Warsan Shire, Kept Honey

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
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…
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.
