Replacement: A Building 402 Novella by Alexandra Warren
Angelica Pearson is taking a serious break from dating.
At least, she thought she was taking a serious break from dating until she comes face-to-face with the finest man she’s ever seen who also happens to be the new maintenance man in her building.
Angie knows what she wants in a man. And outside of his good looks, his natural charm, and his ability to make all of her apartment woes go away, Lawson isn’t that. But that doesn’t mean she can’t get to know him, right?
Lawson Hill is completely focused on rebuilding his life now that he’s a free man.
That rebuild doesn’t include getting involved with anyone, especially not the bougie girl at his job who always needs something in her apartment fixed.
From her high-maintenance appeal alone, he can already tell she’d be nothing but a headache to deal with. But when Angie proves there’s a lot more to her than what meets the eye, Law quickly learns he’ll be doing a lot more than just replacing air filters and light bulbs in Building 402…
Note: While this book tells a complete story, it is a novella meaning it is shorter in length by design. If you prefer your stories longer, I’d highly recommend checking out another Alexandra Warren project.

Claiming Mrs. Felipe: Jeremy Felipe Book 2 by Angelia Vernon Menchan
“Are you serious?” Francine asked Jeremy. He had come to her home, directly from the airport. He hadn’t told her he was flying to Miami. She had been thrilled to see him and took him immediately to their bed but afterwards he told her. Now she was standing over him, her arms folded. He sat up, confused by her apparent anger.
“Yes, why are you angry?”
“Because first of all, you flew to Miami without mentioning it to your fiancée to do something foolish.” Her face was a mask of irritation and his of confusion.
“Foolish? Please expound.”
“Negro, don’t get professorial on me. I’ll expound… You went to her home, the home of her and her husband to straighten her out. That’s arrogant and disrespectful. You could have created discord in her marriage. You’re better than that Jeremy Felipe.” Jeremy pushed back against the headboard, reaching for his glasses as Francine’s words resonated. He placed his glasses on his nose and glanced at her and she was still standing but her arms were no longer crossed. He took in her nude elegance and his body filled with desire. He pulled the sheet over his growing erection and she snorted.
“You’re right. I wasn’t thinking. She insulted you and included Lasha. I wanted to punch back. I was wrong but damn, I got to be a fool?”
“You’re not a fool, your action was foolish and you didn’t tell me you were leaving town.” Jeremy uncovered and got out of bed, pulling her in his arms. Francine tried not to yield but was unable. His big body electrified her.
“I’m sorry, it won’t happen again. I’m grateful you’re making me a better man, less arrogant, disrespectful and foolish hopefully,” He said huskily, pulling her even closer.
“Stop with the grinding… I’m hungry. You’ve already had dessert. We need dinner.” She said moving away a bit, leaving him at attention. “Now put that away and kiss me.” Jeremy backed away, holding up his hands.
“Nope, no kissing, it leads to fornicating,” Jeremy teased and Francine picked up her dress and stepped into it.
“Fine,” She said strutting away but Jeremy grabbed her, placing her on the bed. He started kissing her and moans escaped her from his loving touch. He abruptly stood and walked to the bathroom whistling. He heard her screaming out in frustration. His chuckles filled the air.
Jeremy was standing in the bathroom with his arms folded when she tried to sneak in.
