Love on the Ninth Floor by Aries Skye
Trending on TikTok takes on an entirely new meaning when the ‘for you’ becomes a viral love story in the making. Aries Skye makes a sizzling debut in this flirty feel-good romance, perfect for fans of Jasmine Guillory and Farrah Rochon.
Zany and vivacious Nissi Richards always had her sights set on one goal—her career. As the youngest doctor at Optimal Dentistry, Nissi is the epitome of Black Girl Magic and a #GoalCrusher. Dating, however, was a different topic, or rather more of a non-existent headline. Despite her best friend’s botched matchmaking attempts and her meddlesome sisters who insist she hook a man, love and marriage were never on Nissi’s to-do list—at least not that she’d admit.
Kannon Jordan was a man of simplicity. Unimpressed with the whims of every short skirt that flitted by, or the sexy social media prospects, the ravishing fireman was content with the bachelor’s life. A cosmic shift in his beliefs takes a nosedive once he crosses paths with a dazzling doctor in distress.
When Kannon rescued Nissi from a malfunctioned elevator, she never thought she’d see the handsome fireman again. Suddenly, when a TikTok video goes viral, the two strangers are miraculously reconnected. Will Nissi and Kannon surrender to their feelings, or will they deny their chemistry and the possibility of love at first sight?
