She’s all glam in a tailored suit, acting like they were nothing more than mere acquaintances. But she’s forgotten something—how relentless he can be.
Having experienced more than her fair share of tragedy, the last thing Savannah wants is to contend with Rylan. Back then, she’d surrendered to her feelings for him and conceded to his request for a relationship … well, until she was forced to flee. Seeing Rylan again stirs up buried memories she has no intention of reviving.
All bets are off as they battle through the hurt and pain of their shared past. Savannah begs for a truce and, surprisingly, Rylan agrees. That’s until he discovers a web of secrets and lies that run deeper than he could have ever imagined. Still, some connections are too powerful to ignore.

Current: An Anthology for Jackson, Mississippi (Current Anthology Book 1)
Jackson, MS is a city full of history and culture. It’s also a city suffering from local, state, and national neglect.
In August 2022 when newspapers announced that the city had issued a boil order for the city’s water, many were reminded of Flint, Michigan, and other working class, primarily Black cities around the country who have been left without a vital service for days, weeks, months, and years.
Safe drinking water is a human right.
The rising crises around water are worrying, and it is easy to be overwhelmed by so many concurrent crises. However, the desensitization of many to the pain and suffering of Black people spurred the creation of the CURRENT ANTHOLOGY.
