Untouchable by Shon
I met the love of my life when I was ten years old.
Ever since Talulla Evans walked up to me with her gap-toothed smile and told me her name means “princess”, I’ve been entranced.
For the last twenty years we’ve been there throughout each other’s storms. And somewhere along the line I fell in love. Deep in love.
There is nothing I wouldn’t do for her. Which is how I found myself caught up and agreeing to be her FWB, knowing I wanted more…needed more.
The problem is: Talulla isn’t looking for more. And I get that. She’s been burned more than once and isn’t trying to repeat the cycle. But it’s becoming harder to compartmentalize my feelings for her when all I want is everything when it comes to her.
Heart For Grabs by Jenay Balderas
One woman. Eight men. One complicated game show.
Sammy: It was a drunken dare. That’s it. There’s no way I would have thought things were going to turn out the way they did. He was annoying, rude, and just plain disrespectful. It was so hard just to sit through a date with him. But the longer he remained on the show, the more I started to see him. Once I stopped playing the game, and allowed things to happen the way they were meant to…… I realized there was a lot more to Monte Claire than I had given him credit for. And everything that he was, was exactly what I needed.
Monte: The truth is…. I just needed to find someone desperate enough to marry me so that I could have access to my inheritance. The game show was supposed to be an uncomplicated way for me to do that. But Sammy unhinged me the moment I laid eyes on her. Because she was perfect. In every way. And I couldn’t fight the force that pulled me to her. Things weren’t supposed to go this far. I was never supposed to fall in love with the girl that I met on a game show.
