qh7glfhhrjxbvgzdldxc

SYNOPSIS

Is your heart a little hardened? Do you have a smart mouth? Do you go off on anyone, at any time, and don’t think twice about it? I did. I would overtalk everyone, fighting to be heard and to get my point across; only for it to fall on deaf ears. That sounds all too familiar, doesn’t it? Isn’t it something how life will teach you how to talk to people, so that whatever you’re saying will be received by someone else?
In Book One, I gave you short, sweet, blunt, straight to the point Shajuana, and she packed a few punches. I was nervous about how well it would be received. I didn’t want to give you anything long, drawn out, and boring. You all surprised and humbled me. You received it with open arms, which ignited a fire in me to begin working on this book. I listened to your feedback. Now, we are here.
Book Two is more raw, up close, and personal. Not only am I still encouraging you and giving you parts of me, but I’m sharing more of my experiences with you, in detail. People will always tell you the what, but will rarely tell you the why. Not Me! Not I! No Way! I say what others are thinking, but are too afraid to say. I will speak on subjects and topics that will not be discussed by some people. You want to know if there are any real people left in this world. You want to know if there is somebody near who has really lived what they talk or write about. You want to know if they’ve gone through or is really going through what you are going through. Yes, beloved, I have been through it. I have gone through more stuff in my few years, than someone twice my senior has gone through in a lifetime.
So, I feel you, babe. I got you on that, boo. In the words of Michael Jackson, “You are not alone. I am here with you!” I pray that you get something out of this book like you did with the last one. I pray that it blesses your heart as well as your mind and spirit. Understand that I don’t take exposing myself too lightly. I ask that you accept these pieces of me, as a token of my appreciation, for granting me this opportunity to speak to the real you. This is my journey. These are my truths, my stories, my obstacles, my pains, my hurts, in my words. These are Juandom Thoughts!

SNEAK PEEK

Let me tell you something about me.

I am real, big on loyalty.

It is second nature to me because I give what I want to receive. If I give you loyalty, I expect loyalty in return. However, what people have taught me, out here in these streets, is that a third of you do not have a loyal bone in your body. You are some disrespectful and disloyal human beings.

I came to find out that the ones I loved the most and was the most loyal to were the ones that did me the worst.

I mentioned this in the first book that most of you out here are opportunists.

You get all you can get from one person, then move right on to the next one, just to climb the ladder. Therefore, what you all have taught me is to be loyal to myself.

My loyalty will only go as far as yours go. I must do what I have to do to protect my peace and serenity. I’ve learned to put friends and associates in three categories: Constituents, Comrades and Confidants.

Constituents are all for themselves.

Comrades are for anybody with the same common goal as them.

Confidants are your ride or dies.

Bishop T.D. Jakes preached a sermon on it years ago. Listen to it. It will bless your life.

So, I no longer get angry when those people switch up on me. I just move right on around them. I don’t have to deal with you to be cordial. I will speak, and keep it pushing.

With that being said, I had a friend who had been hospitalized and was bedridden for a minute. This man had many, many friends. When this man was at his worst and couldn’t help himself, those friends were nowhere to be found. During the times that I was with him, I can count on one hand who all came to see him.

It was always the faithful few.

While he’s laying on his sick bed, tell me why people were calling his phone asking him for money? This man was laying on his sick bed and these people were asking for the hook up. They didn’t care that this man was sick. They wanted the plug to get back to work. I’m surprised that he even made any money with all the discounts he was giving out.

 

I’m like Whodini, FRIENDS, HOW MANY OF US HAVE THEM?

FINAL SNEAK PEEK-SHE’S COMING

SC Cover

SYNOPSIS

Once upon a time, a girl returned home with the desire to rekindle an old flame. She’d kept her heart in hibernation only rousing when the opportunity to offer her heart to him presented itself again. At odds they were, because though apart, the time only forced him to love her more. And he despised it. Neither are content with who the other has become making it difficult to allow love in. He doesn’t understand why she had to leave and she never fathomed he wouldn’t let her return. With no choice but to let what is be, the two are forced to navigate through the terrors of their hearts. She’s coming for him all the while he’s running from her. A chase like no other and a love that feels more special than breathing. Enter if you dare.

Disclaimer: She’s Coming is a twenty thousand something word novella. It also serves as tale one of the Grimm Brothers collection.

SNEAK PEEK

“I’m so sorry.”

“My bad,” we said at the same time. I tugged at my ear as her voice registered in my heart. My eyes had been locating Ismery every chance they got all night long. For the most part she seemed to be having a good time too.

“Hey,” she greeted while running her hands down the front of her shorts. “This is a nice party.”

I nodded, “Thanks. Moriah chose the theme. I just found people to make it happen.”

“Well, you did a good job.” We stared at each other unsure of what to say next. “So.”

“Look,” we spoke again at the same time.

“You first,” Ismery suggested.

“I was just going to say that it’s good to have you back. I know it’s going to take some time for shit to not be weird between us, but I promise we’re good. No hard feelings, no love lost. We both deserve to move on and be happy.”

Ismery’s face fell, “Oh,” she replied as if she weren’t expecting what I had to say.

“You good?”

She nodded, “Yeah, yeah. I’m good. Excuse me, I think I forgot my phone in the bathroom,” she stumbled over her words as she backed away to the bathroom. Even from where I stood I could see her cellphone sticking out the zipper of her fanny pack. I got ready to tell her when she rushed inside slamming the door behind her.

I stayed in place for a few more seconds before I turned to head back inside the party. I stood by the door searching for Moriah because I wanted to give her the gift I’d purchased and bring out her birthday cake, but I couldn’t find her. I walked over to my group of friends to see if any of them had seen where she’d disappeared to. “Hey, y’all seen where Moriah went?”

Everyone shook their head no except for Sade, “Last I saw her, she was going out on the patio. She was having a good time one minute and the next she was telling me that she needed a minute to herself.” I had a feeling that I knew the reason behind her change in energy. No one knew Moriah’s history except for me so I knew how important and difficult celebrating herself could be.

“Aight, I’ll be back in a minute. I’m going to go check on her.” Sade nodded in response, so I walked in the direction of the patio. However, I didn’t make it all the way because a blur of color appeared in front of me. Every time I attempted to move around the color followed. I stopped moving and focused on Ismery, “Is something wrong?”

She nodded, “Yes, I lied earlier.” I raised an eyebrow because I had no clue where she was going with her confession. “I’m not good, Jelanne. I haven’t been for a long time.”

I wanted to tell her that that sounded like a personal problem but opted for, “I’m sorry to hear that,” instead. “But I really need to go check on Moriah right quick.” I went to step around her, but she moved with me again blocking my path. I felt myself get frustrated, “What, Ismery? I really need to get to the patio. We can talk later.”

She crossed her arms over her chest defiantly, “No, we only have now, and I have some things to get off my chest.”

It was clear that Ismery wasn’t letting me by until I let her speak. “Fine, what do we need to talk about, Is?”

“Us.”

“Us?” I repeated because I was confused. Ismery nodded her head so I knew it was what she meant to say. “There is no us Ismery.”

sayhe'llmakeitreal

SYNOPSIS

After an unusual first encounter, two complete strangers simply trying to escape their harsh realities by vacationing on a beautiful island find themselves in a situation neither bargained for. As their short time together begins to dwindle, neither can help but wonder if them crossing paths was merely a coincidence or a twist of fate meant to pull them together. In this sizzling novella, Moira and Chance have nothing to lose, but so much to gain. Will they be able to continue on with what started as an innocent fantasy, or will reality be better than their fantasies causing them to want more?

SNEAK PEEK 

“Damn.”

His deep baritone sliced through the silence in the air. As I was, he was confused as hell. He slowly sat himself up, trying to take in his surroundings when he saw me. I don’t know what I was expecting, but the shake of his head wasn’t it. He went to sit himself up, meaning that I had to stand for him to do so. He ran both of his large hands down his face, all the while continuing to shake his head. 

“What time is it?” He asked.

“I… I don’t know,” I admitted.

He looked at me, almost as if to say, “Are you serious.” It didn’t bother me before the condition I was in. Aside from the embarrassment at least. Now, I was downright feeling sorry for myself. I don’t know how I told myself to hold it together only to have fallen completely apart at the seams. 

“How you feeling? Better than earlier I hope.”

The comment was innocent. Harmless. I knew it was, but it only made me feel worse. All I could think about was what this man possibly thought about me. What anyone who was around thought about me. Being around complete strangers was supposed to be the best part of this trip, but it had quickly become the worse. I really was better than getting pissy drunk and throwing up all over the place, but I’d let my issues reduce me to nothing but a story people would be laughing at with their friends. 

“I guess.” I shrugged.

It came off colder than I realized. Because of it, he chuckled, slowly rising to his feet. He collected his things, all the while continuing to shake his head at me.

“Nasty ass bitch,” He mumbled.

“What did you just call me?”

He exhaled sharply, jaw clenching as he stared at the ground. His nostrils flared wildly as he massaged his temples. He was so damn quiet that I would’ve thought he hadn’t heard me, but I knew that wasn’t the case. However, I was still about to repeat myself. I didn’t know who he thought he was talking to, about rather, but he had me fucked up. 

“I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to be disrespectful, but you do have a nasty ass attitude. I don’t fucking know you, let alone what the fuck you have going on, yet I’ve wasted an entire day of my vacation babysitting your grown ass. Trying to make sure you got where you needed in one piece and staying because you asked me to. Just for your rude ass to act like that shit is nothing. I hope you feel better, but I’m out.”

FINAL SNEAK PEEK-COULD THIS BE LOVE

Hey, gorgeous! Tomorrow Kay Shanee returns with Could This Be Love, and we have one final sneak peek to share with you before it goes live!

Could This Be Love

SYNOPSIS

Twenty-seven-year-old, single mother, Nia Simpson’s professional life couldn’t be better. She loves everything about her job as a Human Resources Training Manager. However, her personal life leaves a lot to be desired. Her last relationship ended horribly, over four years ago. Refusing to be burned again, she decided to focus on her career, and because she isn’t a fan of one night stands, her sex life is non-existent.

In comes Raffiel.

Thirty-two-year-old Raffiel Jeffries is every woman’s dream. Tall, dark, handsome, and beyond successful. As the CEO of Jeffries Management, Inc., he can have any woman he wants and there have been times in his life when he did just that. However, as he’s gotten older and more mature, he has a strong desire to love one and be loved by one woman. He thought he had found that in his ex but she was a fraud.

When these two meet, sparks fly and they can’t resist the pull they have on each other. However, the baggage that they both bring to the table creates some issues that neither one of them is prepared to handle. Even still, controlling the speed at which they are falling for each other is impossible as they both question if this could be love.

SNEAK PEEK

Nia rolled over to the other side of the bed where her suitcase was located on the floor and retrieved her vibrator. Once she had it in her hands, she got comfortable and turned the volume up on the television. Your Majesty might not be the real thing but he treats her pussy right.

She closed her eyes and turned Your Majesty on the lowest setting and stimulated her clit briefly before pushing him inside her already slippery walls. Her mind went back to her and Raffiel in the conference room. The thickness of his dick and the way it curved to the left…or maybe it was the right. She couldn’t remember but she knew that upon its entrance into her honeypot, it felt like he was made for her.

The lowest setting wasn’t doing it for Nia so she pressed the button twice and kicked him up a couple of notches.

“Oh shit!” Nia said louder than she meant to as she pushed and pulled Your Majesty in and out of her pussy.

Unbeknownst to her, Raffiel had been standing just outside her hotel suite door for the past few minutes. When left Nia earlier that night, he had a feeling that she wouldn’t do as he told her and call him when she finished working. After Raffiel arrived at his condo, he couldn’t get Nia off his mind. He tried to do some work but failed to stay focused. Then he decided that a workout is what he needed and had an intense session in his home gym. Although that did distract him for a while, his mind  kept going back to Nia.

After he showered, where he stroked out a good nut with thoughts of Nia, it was only nine o’clock. At that point, being away from her felt like complete torture. He picked up his phone to call her a few times but thought against it. After another hour or so battling with himself, he said fuck it. That’s how he ended up back at the hotel.

More times than not, being who he was, bothered him. Being from one of the wealthiest families in Atlanta, his last name rang bells around the city. It was common knowledge that Raffiel had recently taken over his father’s company. His circle of friends was mostly family and a few people that he’s known all his life. He rarely let outsiders in.

However, tonight, using his name and a few bills got him the key card to Nia’s suite. Raffiel inserted the key card, hoping that Nia couldn’t hear the beep. Once he saw the green light, he turned the knob and slowly pushed the door open and crept inside, closing the door softly behind him.

The entrance to the suite was behind a wall and narrow hallway. He began to remove his clothing as he walked inside. As he got closer, he heard moaning coming from the area where the bed was located. He stilled his movements so that he could hear clearly and realized that the moans were definitely Nia’s.

His first thought made him angry. She wouldn’t dare be fucking another man after giving herself to him just hours earlier. What kinda fuck shit is that?

FINAL SNEAK PEEK-A LOVE UNREFINED

Hey, reader!

Tomorrow Ivy Laika returns with A Love Unrefined, and we have one final sneak peek to share with you.  A Love Unrefined, which features Angel and Saint is a spinoff from Untainted Love with Ladi and Ace Baptiste.  If you haven’t read Untainted Love we’ll make sure to link it at the bottom.

ALoveUn

SYNOPSIS

A Love Unrefined is a spinoff of Untainted Love. It can be read as a standalone but to better understand Angel and Saint’s story, I recommend reading Untainted Love first.

Marriage was never meant to be easy. Saint and Angel Baptiste are proof of that. With ten years of being together and nine years of marriage behind them, they believe that they are the strongest they have ever been. 

Angel has fought with demons from her past daily so that she could learn how to properly love the man that gave her everything. She thought she had outgrown the feeling of fear but when she must reveal a secret that she’s kept from him for over a year, she becomes unsure if Saint will continue to fight against her fear.

Saint had fought for Angel’s trust and love since the day they first met. She was stubborn, but she had finally met her match with him. He conquered what was at first the impossible task of gaining her trust. But when Angel’s secret is revealed, he realizes that he couldn’t have been more wrong.

Will the bond they built be broken because of Angel’s secret? A love unrefined has its hurdles but will the two be able to get past the new ones that they are faced with? Or will they call it quits after a decade of love?

SNEAK PEEK

I blacked out as I busted through the door. Startled, they both turned around to see me standing at the doorway. “What did you say Monica?”

Monica looked between Angel and I but didn’t answer the question. “Baby,” Angel whispered taking a step towards me. I took one back. As much as her love healed any pain I had ever gone through, I was too afraid it wouldn’t be able to heal this one.

“Repeat what you said right now!” I barked causing the two of them to jump back. Tears formed in Angel’s eyes slowly rolling down her pecan colored cheeks. The last time I had seen those tears was after Miracle’s birth. The irony of it tormented my soul. Ten years, I put my all into gaining and keeping her trust. I took down every single brick of the wall that she barricaded her heart with. My heart had its own scars from the barbed wire she had surrounding hers to keep love from coming in. I had literally killed for her. A woman that after three encounters, I knew would be my wife. All of that, only for her to go back on her word of giving me honesty and trust.

“Please baby, let me explain,” she pleaded with her words and tears, but they didn’t faze me. I didn’t want her to beg. No pleading. None of it. All I wanted was honesty and trust.

“I did it for us baby. Please let me explain. I didn’t want us hurting anymore. I regret it baby. I swear I do. I’m going to reverse it baby. I didn’t tell you because I was trying to protect you.” With each word she spoke, she took a small step towards me. With each step she took, I took one back.

I didn’t like that she did it but a part of me, the important part, understood why she did it. She wanted to protect us from pain, I got that. She was afraid of another loss, I understood that too. My heart didn’t understand but logic did. For the first time when it came to Angel, I was going to side with logic instead of my emotions.

 “When did you do it Angel?” 

Angel began chewing on the inside of her right cheek and I became numb all over. Her tale. Whatever she was about to tell me, I could already feel the effects of the devastation that was going to rain down on me. My chested tighten as I awaited her answer.

“Right after Miracle was delivered.” 

A year and half. She kept it from me for a year in a half. My already boiling blood grew hotter. Turning away from her, I used every ounce of strength I had left in me to punch a hole in the wall that was next to the doorway. Monica stood there frozen. Angel. My Miss Pecan. The woman that changed my life for the better brought it crashing down with five words. Right after Miracle was delivered.

MMTPC (1)

SYNOPSIS

“Your brown skin imprinted on my mind, I couldn’t forget your smile even while I slept…”

This collection of poetry and prose was inspired by the novel M[USE] ME. It takes you through the emotions I felt while crafting the tragically sensual story of Cassidy and Life. Though there are some pieces of the story in here, if you haven’t had the chance to check it out in its entirety, please do. The love nestled between those pages is an experience that I feel everyone should have and of course I am not just saying this because it’s my work. I’m saying this confidently because of the conversations it will encourage you to have with your significant other whether you’re dating now or in the future when you become committed to another. You are deserving of so much and I hope that you realize this. So this, I dedicate to you. May the love be intense. May the love be real. And most importantly may it make your toes curl like never before.

SNEAK PEEK

WHO AM I

I am the sun and the moon

The bright light, the terrifying dark

The puddle of tears, the bag of giggles

The serenade of shallow breaths that you fall asleep to

The thump of a beating heart

The tar on the roads

The child that cannot read in the back of the class

The baby left on the doorsteps of a stranger’s home

The addict drowning in bliss

The innocent criminal serving a life sentence

The drug dealer

The crack in the sidewalks you stumble over every time liquor allows you to freely speak your mind

I am the period at the end of this line.

The rainbow that appears during the roughest of an hour causing a smile to appear between your lips

The shadow that follows you around

I am the arch in your back from the strokes of pleasure

Love

Hope

Peace

I am the shoulder on which you lean

The fist that knows this isn’t right but blacks your eye

I am the tear that rolls down your face

I am the books in your underprivileged school

The educator

The motivator

The deserter

The one who has so much potential but no purpose

I am the debater with no just cause

The scream that just escaped from your mouth

The door that closed in your face

The music that sends you into oblivion

The words on this page

The storm and the calm

The shiver that slides down your spine when our lips touch

I am the good and the bad

I am the chaos from which you have no escape

I am King

I am Queen

The hands on the clock that reminds you when to wake and when to fall asleep

I am the juices that roll off of your lips as you bite into a piece of fruit

I am everything

Yet I am nothing

So hope you’re ready to 1-click this beautiful poetic collection tomorrow!

SAMPLE

Is it frustrating that I want you but don’t know how to say the words?

I want you to take control of my body the same way you’ve taken over my heart

I know what I want but when it comes time to speak, I just don’t know where to start

You make me feel emotions I’ve never encountered before

My body reacts in a way I’m not familiar with, but I know the tingles and aches are a good thing

If only I knew how to express it to you

If only I could communicate what my body needs

What my mind needs

What my heart needs…

And that’s you in every way

So baby just tell me what can we do to make this easier for us both because I crave you and I know you crave me

Just tell me what the magic words are, and I’ll scream them from the top of my lungs

Are the keywords Enter me? What about feed me?

Just what do I say to let you know that I need to feel you deeper than any soul has gone before

I’ve never been a person of many words so the command can be simple

Just tell me what I need to say to get you in my sacred space

Just tell me what I need to say…

SAMPLE

Angel stood up and began walking around the table towards me. I pushed my seat back anticipating what was to come. Her wide hips swaying towards me had me in a hypnotic state. I couldn’t pull my eyes from them. It wasn’t until she straddled me that I looked up into her eyes. There was a mixture of emotions hidden in them. Lust. Pain. Uncertainty. Hope. Fear.

“Kiss me,” she commanded. It wasn’t a question. It was a clear demand. That’s when I realized that I had lost my ability to tell her no. No part of me wanted to deny her. It was no longer an option that I had.

I leaned into her before taking her plump bottom lip into my mouth. I savored the taste of her mouth as our kiss deepened. With one hand on her waist and the other in her thick curly hair, I drew her closer into me. I held onto her as tightly as I could hoping to feed the need that was burning inside of me. Hoping that her sweet saliva would drip down my throat and put out the fire that was threatening to burn me alive. Then she pulled away taking my breath and heart with her.

“Honesty. Can you give me that?” she asked.

Without any reluctance I answered, “Yes. Are you sure you want that?”

THIRD-7/1- SAY HE’LL MAKE IT REAL BY ASH LEY sayhe'llmakeitreal

SYNOPSIS

After an unusual first encounter, two complete strangers simply trying to escape their harsh realities by vacationing on a beautiful island find themselves in a situation neither bargained for. As their short time together begins to dwindle, neither can help but wonder if them crossing paths was merely a coincidence or a twist of fate meant to pull them together. In this sizzling novella, Moira and Chance have nothing to lose, but so much to gain. Will they be able to continue on with what started as an innocent fantasy, or will reality be better than their fantasies causing them to want more?

SAMPLE

Because I wasn’t paying attention to my surroundings, I’d bumped into someone. Not only had the impact made me lose the contents of both hands, he dropped his items as well. I’m not sure what I expected aside from us gathering our things, but the small talk he tried making wasn’t it. 

“My fault, beautiful,” He said. 

“I know.” 

“Huh?”

“It is your fault, and I am beautiful. Now, thanks for making me drop my food,” I said, snatching my phone from his hand. 

I didn’t bother looking at him or picking up the food off the ground. I was honestly glad that I hadn’t gotten any of it on me. I prepared to go on my way when I could hear him snickering. That’s when I turned around, facing him. The view quickly had me swallowing as I took in the stranger I was being unnecessarily rude to. With a tall, muscular build, chiseled and well-defined face and an intense pair of black eyes, he was something to admire. His mahogany skin was free of flaws, and he had a smile to match. Still, I didn’t soften up. Why would I?

“What’s funny?” I questioned. 

“You. I didn’t mean to bump into you, but I also wasn’t the only one not paying attention either.”

He was right, and it upset me. I was already upset, but this was certainly making it worse. I didn’t have time for this back and forth about who did this and that. Not with a stranger. When he knew that I had nothing to say back, his lips curved into a smirk. I can’t even lie and act as if I wanted to smack it off his face. How could I when the arrogance made him ten times more attractive? 

“Fucking asshole.” 

I rolled my eyes, walking off. Laughter didn’t follow behind me, and I was a bit surprised. I wish I had eyes in the back of my head so that I could see if he were trailing me or still stuck in place. When I didn’t feel his presence or hear him speak, I knew he didn’t come after me. Then again, I was probably just some crazy bitch to him.

SNEAK PEEK

Affixed Us

Control slipped from his grasp where I was concerned.

Said I provoked the sex demon in him that connected us.

Originally anyway.

Later we found so much more affixed us to the blood of the heartbeats we were blessed enough to feel.

No matter how much space and time stood between us I was never horny for another soul.

The sensations of him still had my body humming with ecstasy.

I’d never felt so incredibly free.

My pussy was his and he knew it.

atonement

SYNOPSIS

After her mother’s untimely passing, Juniper Tate left the only home she’d ever known. As the years pass, Juniper realizes the only way to truly move forward with her life is if she returns to the place that still holds so many painful memories. Being welcomed back with open arms makes Juniper think the rash decision is going to be the best she’s made yet. Her desire to feel wanted and shake the loneliness that’s plagued her for so long results in her making one too many mistakes. When it’s all said and done, she finds herself struggling for redemption and being left to pay the price for all of her wrong doing. 

SNEAK PEEK

From the beginning, I’d told him I wanted to have sex. I’d even told him it was okay if he expected nothing from me aside from that because I wasn’t interested in shit else. The thing with Laith was, he wasn’t feeling that. He was feeling me. He didn’t just want to have sex. He actually wanted to take the time and get to know me. You didn’t meet too many men who were genuinely like that.

No matter how many times I tried reassuring him it was okay if we did just keep things physical, he in turn reiterated that he wanted something deeper. He was so damn nice and patient. Despite how he tried not to open up, it came effortlessly when I was with him. Crazy enough, it made me want him more, but all we were doing was kissing and hugging. I was lucky if I could get a back rub from this man and I knew I should’ve been grateful, compared to who I could’ve had, but I was bored.

It was ironic, because me and Laith both wanted more, but two completely different versions of what that was. It was like dating a priest or something. Was it going to kill him to give me a little tongue? A little finger action? Did I have to lay in the bed butt ass naked with a sign that read “take advantage of me.” I mean, what the hell was a girl supposed to do to get some play?

“Where are we going?” I asked.

“It wouldn’t be a surprise if I told you now, would it?”

“In my defense, you haven’t told me a single thing. Not even that it was a surprise. Can I at least get a hint?”

“No.”

I blew out a breath from his shortness. I wasn’t upset with him, but the suspense was killing me. Sensing how antsy I’d grown; he placed a hand on my knee. This was a prefect example of what I was talking about. My thigh was not even five inches away, yet he chose to play it safe. To play it friendly. I placed my hand on his, slowly moving it to where it should’ve gone in the first place. He didn’t pull away as I expected. He instead smirked, shaking his head.

“You just can’t help yourself, can you?”

“Nope.” I giggled.

He was driving and paying attention to the road. While I knew how important it was to let him keep his focus, I figured this would be a good time at getting some of the sexual tension relieved. Laith might have been good about not touching me, but I knew that it wasn’t easy. The tent in his pants, even now, was always a dead giveaway. I continued moving his hand, spreading my legs in the process.

My heart began to pound in my chest from how bold I was being. It was teetering desperation, but I didn’t even care. Laith had never let me go this far so I was hopeful he was feeling frisky just like I was. He squeezed the inside of my thigh before his hand -of its own free will might I add- located the treasure between my legs. I held my breath, anticipating his touch. He took his bottom lip inside of his mouth and just as he allowed his middle finger to lazily toy between my legs, he was pulling his hand away.

“You are nothing but a tease.”

“And you’re nothing but trouble,” he muttered.

SYNOPSIS

In the final installment of the Love Under New Management series, we finish up with Belize – the youngest member of the crew but probably the most damaged. 

Belize Osbourne has her own struggles that make a life of love seem unreachable. They say pretty hurts and as beautiful as she may be, she has some ugly truths that catapult her into a downward spiral. Dawn offers her a job she can’t turn down.

Dooney has been in her line of sight from the very beginning, and he too has trust issues and his own story of the struggle. Dooney has baggage, and bringing Belize in to help him get to the next level of his boxing career is the last thing he wants to do.

With Belize being pushy and knowing she’s the best one for the job, she pushes and inserts herself into his life against his wishes. Eventually, he sees how special she is and lends a helping hand to fight her demons but tragedy hits and causes them to hit pause. The tables turn and both have to find themselves alone so they can be dangerous together. Find out if love will knock them down but be so strong that it also picks them back up.

SNEAK PEEK

“So are we done here?” he asked standing to his feet completely ignoring what I said. His body shaded mine. I couldn’t feel the sun beaming down on my back. Raising my eyes to meet his, his distant look told pieces of his story and explained why he wasn’t comfortable telling it to me. Dooney didn’t trust easy and he was embarrassed. I wondered how bad it was for him to be so guarded about it. I needed to do some digging on my own to try and understand his stance on shutting the world out.

“Yea, for the day, but Friday we change your wardrobe for functions. We are doing this whether you tell me your story or not.”

“You just don’t know how to quit huh?” he asked with a slight chuckle. Quitting was one thing my mother never taught me. I was pressing forward because that was my job. We could play this game his way for now but eventually he wouldn’t be able to shut me out. I wasn’t going to give up.

“Damn right, you don’t scare me. I have a job to do and I plan to do it whether you play nice or not. Even if that means I can’t ride you like a boogie board until after.”

“What?” he asked laughing and falling back into the door.

“You heard me. Play nice with me and I’ll play nice with you,” I winked and gathered my things. In the midst of grabbing my purse I knocked it over. All my belongings fell to the floor and as I bent down to pick them up, he spotted my small pouch of pills. I almost knocked him over to get to them before he could investigate. He stood and watched me gather my things and I couldn’t even look him in the eyes. Stepping to the door, he stopped me, lifted my chin and looked in my eyes with a knowing look. The stare was so powerful, I felt my knees buckle.

“Belize, you are probably the sexiest woman I’ve laid eyes on with those gray eyes, light freckles and damn sexy body but I’m not my niggas. You won’t have me out here weeping like a bitch. And you better make sure your hustle bigger than your habit.”

“And, Dooney, let me make something clear since we’re being honest. I don’t quit and I don’t like being told no. I don’t want you weeping, I want you screaming my name. Good day,” I responded. Side stepping and exiting the door, I turned to check if he was watching and he was. Dooney was watching all while licking his lips and stroking his full beard.
