Enough (Falling for a Rose Book 2) by Stephanie Nicole Norris
At the celebration of her best friend’s wedding, Claudia Steven’s is trying to sort out her tumultuous emotions, regarding the groom’s best man and brother, Jaden Alexander Rose.
What started as a platonic relationship, has turned into a battle of wills whenever they find themselves together. Their heated exchanges have risen to the surface, and desire spills over on contact. However, Claudia fears she is not enough to be on the arm of a prestigious benefactor like Jaden. And Claudia is sure that’s why he’s friend-zoned her.
Multimillionaire investment banker, Jaden Alexander Rose is here today and gone tomorrow. Business is his priority, which is why he has kept the passion that grows for Claudia at arm’s length. But the bachelor cannot seem to fight off the dynamic hold Claudia has on him, ever since meeting her six months ago at a charity event. Now at his brother’s wedding, Jaden crosses that platonic line, and he has every intention of showing Claudia she’s all he needs and more.
The Falling for a Rose series follows each member of the Rose family as they explore this thing called love. However, each book is just as enjoyable if read as a standalone as it is if read in the series order.

Room for Regret by ShaniceXLola

Tenele’s conscious remained intact until the ultimate discovery. Becoming complacent, it caused her to miss a step, and Jamar was in for the uncovering of his life. Embarking upon destruction, Jamar was given an ultimatum that could cause her, her life. Will he scamper to her salvation as they’d become accustomed to, or are the secrets of her soul too much to bear?

If You Ever Change Your Mind by B. Love
“Had I known I would reach the level I did, I probably would’ve gotten married right after college.” – Jaxon Jeffries
Lucas Berry has never been the type to take the traditional route with anything in his life. Even when he considers it, life throws him a curveball that causes him to take an entirely different path. The last curveball, a pregnant friend with benefits, caused Lucas to make an illegal move that led to his sister, Luana, being bound to Jaxon Jeffries. At first meeting Jaxon, Lucas considers him to be a man that will never be worthy of his respect and admiration, but there is one thing that Jaxon shares with Lucas that changes his life forever – the importance of choosing a wife instead of letting something as reckless and irrational as love choose one for you.
Hali Davison has never been the type to step out of the traditional route with anything in her life. Even when she considers it, life throws her a curveball that causes her to return to the safe, predictable path she grew up on. The last curveball, finding out the man she’s loved all of her life practically was getting married to a woman that wasn’t her, has Hali reconsidering her safe and predictable lifestyle. If her last chance at letting Lucas know how she really feels for him is at his wedding… so be it.
Lucas is stuck between doing the right thing and following his heart. His childhood has made it difficult for him to believe that true love exists, which is a great deal of the reason why he’s fought his feelings for Hali over the years.
With his natural hair product line reaching heights he never thought were possible, Lucas is determined to secure his life mate now before his money, power and status make it impossible to choose a woman who wants him for him and not who he is and what he has. There’s just one question he’s faced with on the day of his wedding; is that woman Shanice, the woman responsible for giving him his first child, or Hali, the woman responsible for giving him his first taste of love – no matter how much he thought he didn’t want it.
*Please note, Lucas and Hali first appear in “Just Say You Love Me”. While their story can be read on its own, it is suggested that you read about their backgrounds in “Just Say You Love Me” first.
My Heart is a Fool by BriAnn Danae
“Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”
Malena, a young, free spirited woman in the last year of undergraduate school is trying to figure out where her heart belongs with this thing called love. What she fails to grasp is that the love she’s seeking is not dependent of other’s actions, but of her own. Open emotionally, Malena and her boyfriend Maayad – or what she considers him to be – find themselves struggling to keep faith alive in their relationship. One chance too many has been given, and Malena finds herself torn between what her heart yearns for, and what her mind needs; solace and security.
Mellow, and as smooth as silk, Demir has been nothing but the perfect best friend to Malena. Coming to her defense has always came natural to him, and having been placed in the friend zone from the day they met, Demir doesn’t mind his title one bit. In fact, he wore it proudly until he began to see Malena for who she really is; or isn’t so to speak. Though he loves the bond they have, and finds himself curious as to what they could become, his relationship of three years stops him from doing so.
Tip-toeing on the edge of temptation, balancing her busy life and strenuous relationships, Malena is forced to make some life altering decisions. Ones she never saw coming until it was too late. In this fast-paced tale of love, loss, and life lessons, BriAnn Danae introduces her readers to a fresh, relatable storyline and set of characters you’ll grow to love, even hate. Being loyal isn’t all it’s cracked up to be; especially when you’ve been played the fool in the name of love.
