Marry Me Twice by Monica Walters
Having the support of his family means everything to Haji Abimbola. Leaving his home of Freetown, Sierra Leone to further his education, he travels to the United States… Southeast Texas to be exact… to study chemical engineering. It seemed he could never please his father, but in a quest to prove that he is capable of great things and that he deserves his father’s honor, Haji excels in his field of study. After several major accomplishments and still not having the approval he longs for, he ends his quest and chooses to continue living life on his terms.
Chinara Nwachucku has struck out with love and hasn’t given a man a second thought in five years. Journeying to the United States, she sets out to make a successful life for herself to help her family back home in Nigeria, but it’s taking much longer than she anticipated. It seems when she takes one step, she’s knocked back two. Being laid off from her job is the blow that brings her to her knees. Not being able to afford her current lifestyle, she hits the ground running in search of a job to regain a steady income. As if her life isn’t stressful enough, she catches the attention of a man that seems to be the type to only want one thing. While her interest is piqued because the man whose name is Haji, is attractive, she feels that he will only be a complication in her life.
Both Haji and Chinara experience trying times personally and their struggles bring them across one another’s paths once again. Haji believes that in order to make it through those struggles, they have to do it together. Will he be able to convince Chinara of this fact, or will it fall on deaf ears?
Lust (The Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series Book 2) by Brookelyn Mosley
He’s a lustful ladies’ man, and she’s a compassionate charmer committed to chastity. They had a relationship their peers swore would last a lifetime… until it didn’t.
“I’ll admit it; I messed up. But I was young, dumb, and full of… you know the rest. The creator was too good to me when he brought Leelah Waters into my life my senior year in high school. Innocent with an open heart, she was way too good for the person I became the moment I started college. That was 16 years ago though, and I’ve wasted my time with enough women to know they don’t give me what she gives me and I’m convinced they never will. I’m more than ready for all the stuff they say love has to offer, and I want it only with Leelah. I’m so serious about earning her back, I’m prepared to make possibly the dumbest decision of my career to be with her. But is she willing to listen to my side and accept me back after I broke her heart?”
“I’ll admit it; I messed up. I was young, dumb, and fell for the guy with the looks and the popularity who told me he loved me but showed me he didn’t. I can’t believe I made the mistake of imagining my life with him at such a young age! As if a boy like Pryce Williams would live and love the family life when his career hadn’t even taken off yet. The women who were once teenaged girls have always flocked to him. They shot their shots. But I always believed Pryce and my bond was too damn real and way too strong for him to ever slip up. But he did, and we were over just like that. And I moved on, several times and with several men, eventually needing to force myself into chastity to save me from me. I’m better now… a little. And I’m over him. Then why after all this time does it feel like I’ve been holding my breath and waiting for Pryce to return to repair the heart he broke?”
Amongst the seven vices, lust is considered the least severe because this vice deals with the sin of the flesh and not of the spirit. In fact, lust is labeled as misplaced desire for deep affection. A desire in need of redirection. Can the virtuous one who is chaste cure a lustful heart with the one thing that heart desires the most, love?
*This book contains sexually explicit content. LUST is a standalone and the second book in The Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series. Seven books make up this series. GREED is next…
