However, there’s only so much protection her detective friend Todd can offer her as the investigation loosely circles her as a potential suspect. Considering everything she has to lose — a successful medical practice, her relationship with her college-aged son Josiah, her hunky fireman boyfriend AJ — Myaisha uses what sleuthing skills she’s developed as a hobbyist mystery writer to try and uncover the darker, sleazier layers of neighborhood life around her.

Ella Gets the D by Tanvier Peart

The end of my marriage was the beginning of my happily ever after.

What happens when you hear your husband putting dents in your mattress with another woman?

Leave and never look back!

Easier said than done when you’re a stay-at-home mom, share two kids with the no-good cheater, and have a savings account that laughs in your face on the daily.

I want out, so I agree to an outrageous separation agreement to avoid a courtroom showdown with a man standing on his wallet, waiting for me to fall. The mission is next to impossible, but I would rather attempt a full split on a hibachi grill after a Brazilian wax than stay in a marriage I should’ve ended years ago.

Morgan, my best friend, offers up a gorgeous townhouse her family owns to get me back on my feet. Eight months rent-free equals one step closer to Divorced AF.

We celebrate my new life with a night out. I didn’t expect moms gone wild at my divorce party, but one fruity cocktail led to me staying out past my bedtime and the steamiest dream with a man straight from my fantasies.

Every kiss, every caress, made me feel worshipped. Adored.

When Morgan offered me this Georgetown townhouse, she failed to mention that it belongs to her younger brother, one of DC’s most eligible bachelors. He’s very fine, not a dream, and back early from time away in London.

Now, we’re staring at each other, dumbfounded and turned on.

Ella Gets the D is a standalone divorce romantic comedy, perfect for lovers of cinnamon roll heroes, tired moms getting their groove back, tacos, and lots of spice (we kick the door wide open).
