Hey Girl! Check out these new releases from November 2nd-8th.
More Than You’ll Ever Know by Chelsea Maria
Choyce was the ruler and keyholder of something gravely savage that laid prowling within me. Something gravely savage that needed to be released.
The unique makeup of Choyce made me want her beyond my control. My attraction to Choyce Tyrell came from her uncaring desire to fit in. Her unapologetic confidence to be her and only her. Who she was, bold and assertive, I fed off that. I never in my life encountered a woman like her. Probably never would again. I wanted to add value to the already perfect woman who fearlessly claimed me without hesitation of what the risks might be.
This man bewitched me with a single kiss.
Khiry Washington had me smitten and not much had happened for me to feel that way. I don’t know. Maybe it had a lot to do with his selfless desire to protect me when he knew nothing about me. Or perhaps it was the passion behind his eyes and the sound of his soulful baritone when he rocked me to a soothing melody as he painted a mural of his wanted love.
Acting out on an intuition of the heart had the potential to leave me jaded and blue. Khiry spoke to many pieces of me. Spoke to my broken pieces just as loud as he spoke to my perfect pieces. Desperately, I wanted to gather all of my strength and peel back the blankets of my soul for him to see. I wanted to show him the steps leading to the road map called Choyce’s Euphoria.
But for now, I’d wait.
