Once upon a time in a town called Plainfield, Blue White was the most sought-after model of all time. There wasn’t a magazine or modeling agency that didn’t want to book her or runway they didn’t want her to walk on. Before her mother passed away, she always told her that she was beautifully unique. Blue loved how much her mother poured into her because she always thought she wasn’t the prettiest of them all.
Her skin was a dark shade of mocha, and her eyes were as blue as the ocean. Most of her peers used to say that her eyes didn’t match her skin tone and made fun of her. After her mother passed, her father continued to encourage Blue and tell her she was the most beautiful girl in the world. It wasn’t until he remarried that she started to feel inadequate. Her stepmother, Dawn, was gorgeous, and she made sure to let Blue know it every day. Blue never argued that fact, but Dawn never acknowledged the beauty that was inside and outside of Blue.
Years passed, and a house fire killed her father and burned a portion of her stepmother’s face. Things were never the same again, and in her father’s will, he made sure to leave Dawn the home, his money, and promises to take care of his beloved daughter for all time. Since Dawn had fallen from grace, she decided to put Blue in pageants, thinking that she would never succeed in that environment. However, Blue shined amongst the stars and became very successful in her quest to be top model. That enraged Dawn, but she kept up a facade and secretly envied Blue. Unbeknownst to Blue, Dawn had a vendetta against her stepdaughter and wanted nothing more than to see her fail.
This is the story of Blue White and the Seven Henchmen.

When she finds herself in the crosshairs of a gang shootout, she’s swept into the arms of a bad boy with a blindingly white smile.

When he crosses paths with the attention-grabbing Lady, he falls prey to her beauty.

Yeah…Thanks (Lennox Hills Book 2) by Jahquel J.
Every day I turned my camera on, sat in front of my tripod and recorded myself doing my makeup, hair or getting ready for an event. My supporters watched wishing they had the newest designer bag that I had just worn, or the mountains upon mountains of PR every brand sent to my front door. They wanted to be Harlym J., and I mean, I couldn’t blame them. I made this lifestyle look like a piece of cake with three cherries on top.
What they didn’t see was the breakdowns, tears, and weekly visits to shake my titties for a perverted correction officer just to see my man. They didn’t see the arguments, and moments of loneliness while all my other friends were moving on with their lives. They were getting married, getting pregnant, advancing in their careers and all I was getting was action from my rose.
I wanted to hate Ashton Willshire. I mean, he’s self-centered, rude, and cocky as ever. There was no way I was going to give up something familiar for uncharted territories. I don’t know if it was the gold teeth, the tattoos, or the way he tied his du-rag. All of it drove my senses haywire, and I hated it.
So, yeah… thanks.
