The Lies: The Lies We Tell About Life, Love and Everything in Between by Christina C. Jones
Sometimes, the worst lies are the ones we tell ourselves.
They build and build, into a facade of transparency and false truth that we present to the world… until it comes crashing down because of that one person who sees right into you.
“Just one more time.”
“It’s not even like that.”
“I’m not tripping about it.”
“I’m fine. Really.”
Growth and Forgiveness. Maturity and Grace. Moving on, and moving forward. All come into play when something that was supposed to be a one-time indulgence becomes something more – something almost destroyed by lies they never told each other.

Will this beautiful, cinnamon-skinned, natural hair wearing assistant be willing to start a secret affair with her sandy-haired, hazel eyed, white boss? The no-fraternizing regulations make the idea risky enough without adding the interracial component to complicate the potential relationship. What will people think if they find out—that she slept her way into the position she is more than qualified to hold? It wouldn’t be the first time an attractive black woman has been viewed that way.
Caleb has been in love with Ramona for as long as she has been secretly dreaming about him. He’s guessed her feelings without revealing his, but all the cards are about to be put on the table. He’ll gamble that they’ll have this opportunity to take their working relationship to an intimate level.
Too Devout by Takerra Allen

Delve deeper into Denny and Neeka’s world and you’ll either be begging to leave, or won’t want to.

With the tenacity of the characters folded into these paragraphs…and their determination to beat the odds tilting the scale at every obstacle…
You, as the witness, will be the one to decide… Should it have been?
Is love a game that you play to win…and by all means, to prove it true?
Or, are there signs we overlook, which caution us when we are going against the course of nature?
Is there ever a danger…of being…TOO DEVOUT?
