The Bed We Made by Ivy Simone
Niecey, a discontented wife, goes on a vengeful mission seeking a man, any man, a stranger to give herself to for one night. Just to give her cheating husband a dose of how it feels. She sought a one night stand; but instead, stumbled upon a serendipitous situation. Nothing should have come from it, but it changed the dynamics of her marriage.
A bed unmade…
Niecey had always piqued his senses; just as much then as she does now. Although she is considered off limits, it doesn’t stop Asad from seizing the opportunity once it presents itself. He could care less about boundaries. But as bad as he wants her, he knows he could never have her. Two things prevent him from wanting more of her: One, he is about to go away to prison for a few years; and two, he knows she doesn’t want anything more. He understands that he was only something she needed for that night.
Those few years have passed; and through familiar circumstances, they have to face one another again. Asad is a young arrogant tatted up diabolical thug known for his churlish disposition. His mouth is reckless, his attitude sucks, and empathetic he is not.
Niecey is an entrepreneur, beautiful, and well-off. She’s flawed, but has learned to love herself anyway. They’re not a likely pair, but those factors don’t matter much when they touch. The connection and unquestionable sexual chemistry between them turns their reunion into an ongoing carnal affair. However, things take a turn in a direction Niecey wasn’t intending.
The bed has been made…
Neither can contend the interdependence that exists between them. Succumbing to its power, they can no longer deny love’s right to live. But how deep will Niecey let their situation get before she can no longer keep the truth away, and from hurting everyone she cherishes, including Asad?
Now they must lie in the bed they’ve made…

Addicted: Jessie & Chloe (Book Two) (Shaw Siblings After Words Book 2) by Sabrina E L B Scales
There are seven Shaws, each one with their own story to tell.
This is the story of Jessie and Chloe–when love becomes an addiction…
Tormented by a past riddled with bad choices and turns down the most dangerous roads, Jessie has survived the growing pains of becoming a grown ass man. Granted the challenging responsibility of being a single father, after his name sake, and baby girl, Junie’s mother passed away from a drug overdose after giving birth to their daughter, Jessie embraces the challenge of sobriety, for his daughter’s sake and his own.
Romantic involvement wasn’t in Jessie’s radar, not with the balancing act he was already performing between a full-time job and keeping up with a baby. But a beautifully familiar face in a local diner would change that completely, inviting a newfound addiction into Jessie’s life; one that would be more beneficial than not.
Friends to Forever: Dare to Love (Triumph) by Maya Rossi
Basketball Superstar Alex Thompson has never asked for anything in the harsh, fight-for-every-single-thing life he’d been dealt, except one- that the woman he loves come to love him back. It is an unusual position he finds himself in, an impossible one. For Dani sees him only as a brother- as she should.
He’d been a brother and friend to her for more than fifteen years of their lives. It was unfair to expect her to view him as a lover suddenly.
But Alex never played fair when he wanted something. And he wanted this, badly.
With the blood of her sister, Amanda staining her hands and seeping into her heart to dig deep furrows that would forever scar her, Dani is forever damaged. Forced to watch her sister repeatedly abused, every day for nine years until she plunged to her death, Dani had never known love. She certainly wasn’t looking for it until one look into the most glittering pair of green eyes she’d ever see changed everything.
For Dani, Alex represented family, companionship and security. She was comfortable and didn’t want anything to change. But Alex was making moves- actions that called into question everything she’d ever known about a man closer than a brother, the only male in the world she trusted.
He ruined everything. Now, their once cozy home and comfortable relationship became marred by sexual tension. It was a dare to love- one she hesitated to take.
Could she trust him? Should she take this plunge?

Jabari Henderson is the epitome of a good man. Because of his deep relationship with his sisters and mother, he knew all that it took to make a woman feel loved and appreciated. Because he watched heartbreak lead one of his sisters to kill herself with the use of drugs and alcohol, he knew all that it took to break a woman.
Lianne Rodgers is the epitome of a gifted soul. Her love for music blessed her with a record deal at the age of seventeen, and since then she’s been traveling the world for years gracing stage after stage with her tremendous talent. As much as she loves what she does, she’s tired – mentally, physically, and emotionally.
When Lianne returns to Memphis for a break, she falls in love with Jabari’s cooking after a visit to his restaurant. She ordered the food to go and ate it at home to avoid being seen and recognized, but the food was so good she made her way back to his restaurant to meet the man behind the best meal she’d ever had in her life.
Jabari is used to people singing his praises for his food, but Lianne’s praises touch him in a different way. A different place. And when she asks him to be her personal chef during her stay in Memphis he happily agrees just for the chance to be near her.
They say food nourishes the soul, and Jabari uses his culinary skills to reach Lianne in a way that no man ever has. There’s just one problem – she’s in a relationship with her manager. When her break is over, Lianne is committed to returning to her man, her life, and her career… but after waiting for a woman like Lianne for years… Jabari has no plans of letting her get away from Memphis or him that easily.
