His Loving Caress (Chasing Love) by Candace Shaw
Hearts in harmony?
Instead of falling apart when her childhood sweetheart chose his music career over marriage, Elle Lauren fled to Paris to study fashion design. Her stunning wedding gowns now give other brides the happily-ever-after she didn’t have. Ignoring Braxton Chase’s long-distance apologies has been easy. But meeting him once more stirs the deep longings and desires that a decade has not erased.
Braxton walked away from the pressure to marry at a young age, and he’s regretted breaking Elle’s heart ever since. From the moment he sees her again at his Atlanta jazz club, he knows he wants more than forgiveness—he wants a second chance at the body-and-soul connection that they once had. Can he convince her to trust the sweet, seductive melody of their lost love?

The Book Club by Jewel René
The book club, another one of Hill’s compassionate attempts to help disadvantaged youths in his community. Unfortunately, like many of his ventures before, it failed. Over time and no longer involving teens, the book club sort of morphed into routine kickback among Hill and three of his closest friends, Selina, Vi, and Coco. Hill and Selina have best friends since the fifth grade. For years, their relationship has platonically been like an old married couple. In the more recent years, Vi and Coco joined the friendship, and they all become virtually inseparable.
Things couldn’t be more perfect at this moment in Hill’s life, until a series of events rock everything he thought he knew about himself; his livelihood, his friendships, and even who he could love. Most jolting for him, is coming to the realization about the man he truly is. He is now faced with the dilemma of being the man he’s always known himself to be ( the well educated entrepreneur and faithful friend, who’s always held it together) and allowing that man to die a slow painful death, in the pursuit of his authenticity. Either way, many will be hurt and forever changed in the process, including Hill. Is it all worth it?
