Laikynn Marie James is a hustler. She has been able to convince men to do just about anything, except love her. After spending seven years in another country and toxic relationship, Laikynn returns to the United States with two goals in mind – to start working legally and to fall in love and start her own family. The second she returns, she runs into a man that could very well be capable of giving her the love she desires, but he’s a part of the lifestyle Laikynn is desperately trying to get away from.

Growing up in foster care led Pharaoh and his older brother to a life of crime. He hasn’t held much value for love or women for that matter, only after what they can give to satisfy him.

And it also seems as if they have no control over whether they become each other’s peace or the downfall that takes them both out permanently. Love becomes the goal for them both, but common enemies have placed targets on their backs. Will they be able to go legit and let their relationship flourish, or will they find their hearts aching, breaking, and stopping all in the name of love?



Just Love Me by Shenaé Hailey*

Hailey Owens’ life path was planned perfectly. From her college choice down to the flowers she’d have on her wedding day and what she’d name her children. With just a few days left before her thirtieth birthday, Hailey is in a sour mood. Her perfectly planned path has been horribly shattered by fate. Not only is she divorced, but she doesn’t have any children, and she hasn’t put her degree to use since she received it.

Kane Travis has never been one to force anything. He’s preferred going with the flow to avoid disappointment. Right after his thirtieth birthday, Kane finds himself taking inventory of all that he’s accomplished in life. He doesn’t regret much that he’s missed out on because of his laid-back attitude, but there is one thing he’s consistently regretted – not pursuing Hailey as actively as he desired to.

Ten years ago, Kane and Hailey met and instantly clicked. Because of Hailey’s strict plans for her life, she refused to entertain the thought of settling down with any man before finishing college. With Kane believing in things happening in their own timing, he offered what they considered to be the perfect solution – meeting up for Hailey’s thirtieth birthday if they’re both still single. There’s just one problem – life has changed them both… and neither can say if it’s for the better.

Two old friends, one cabin, and zero chances of their lives not being changed. Will their old flame reignite and burn more passionately than it ever has, or will reconnecting be as impossible as capturing scattered ashes?

Lasha walked into her own birthday party feeling melancholy. She was grateful for it and the room was filled with friends and family.

Nine months earlier they started a relationship, but three months later Rashad received a paid, six-month teaching stint at Cambridge in London. Along with everyone else she was thrilled for him and proud, but she missed him. They called and FaceTime regularly and she was very busy but… there was nothing like talking to him, seeing his eyes crinkle when he smiled and feeling his lips on hers.

“Happy Birthday!” Everyone yelled when she walked in and her face opened in a genuine smile. She knew she was blessed, and it was only three more weeks. She started giggling when her dad, Jeremy walked towards her with Gloria, her grandma, on his arm. She squealed with delight that Gloria had made it from the Dominican Republic for her twentieth birthday. She enfolded her elder in her arms and kissed all over her face. Gloria tightened her lips as if annoyed, but she loved it and her prodigy, only granddaughter.

“Ooooo grandma, thank you.” Lasha exclaimed. “I’m so glad you came.” Gloria stepped back, assessing Lasha with a smile filled with pride. She often wondered what her life would have been if she had been raised to fly like Lasha. At twenty, she was married to the first man she kissed.

“Twenty is a big deal, my child. You’re in your last year of university and are now so grownup, I wouldn’t have missed it.” Gloria said, slipping an envelope in Lasha’s hand. Lasha leaned in, kissing Gloria again.

“Me either…” a deep voice said behind her, causing Lasha to twirl around and face… Rashad. She blinked as if not believing her eyes before leaping into his arms and wrapping her legs around him.

“Oh, god, you’re here!”

“Baby, I wouldn’t miss your day, but you might want to unwrap your legs before I embarrass us.” He whispered. Giggles poured from her as she slid from his arms, placing her face in his neck, sniffing the scent unique to him. His heart beat as rapidly as hers.
He missed me.
