Something Real by A.C. Taylor
“I don’t want to pretend like what we have isn’t real. You may be cool with that, but that’s not me.” –Maze
Kasauni Rich couldn’t stop loving Maze even if she tried, and she’d definitely tried. As far as she was concerned, he was everything she didn’t need. A musician, a ladies’ man, and a social media star that every woman wanted to get their hands on. But Maze was also loving, loyal, and her biggest protector. His onstage persona was nothing compared to the man he was behind closed doors, and that’s who she couldn’t stop herself from falling in love with. But Kasauni’s fear of being in the public eye was a lot stronger than her heart. She couldn’t see past the horrible world she might be up against. Little did she know, everything she thought she could run away from was determined to meet her at her front door.
Maze didn’t deny his reputation when it came to women, but he knew there was only one woman that could tame his heart. Unfortunately, Kasauni had made it very clear that she wasn’t up for the challenge, and Maze found a way to accept that. But after learning that she was carrying his child, going along with her wishes seemed impossible. He wanted more, and he couldn’t pretend otherwise.
See what happens when every behind-the-scenes moment unfolds under the spotlight. Will Maze be able to get a handle on the craziness surrounding his lifestyle and win Kasauni’s heart? Or will they realize that their bond isn’t as strong as they thought, and let go of each other for good?
Into Your Orbit (A Rekindled Love Book 1) by BriAnn Danae
Connecting at a young age Ayceion and Nikhol build a friendship that unexpectedly separates them, leaving Ayce with a yearning heart. He wanted nothing more than to care for her as best as possible. When the opportunity presents itself, Ayce just does that.
Nikhol didn’t think the tall boy with the prettiest shade of brown skin who lived in her building would become her first real friend. Ayce was her first true love, and heartbreak at twelve years old. In a sense, Nikhol resented him but thanked him for changing her life as well.
Afraid to let him completely into her world when the universe aligns their paths a second time, Nikhol does what she knows best and runs. Not far, though, because Ayce didn’t let her. His name should’ve been in the dictionary next to apply and pressure because he did exactly that. Now that he was back in her world, Ayce wanted to reside there and give Nikhol no reason for her feelings to shift.
This is a short tale of love, loss, and the rekindling of what was always destined to be.
