Along Love’s Lines by Tucora Monique
“Tell me the truth even though it might kill me. We both know that we’re just wasting time, trying to survive instead of just feeling.” —Nao
Sharp and clean, that’s the way barber Soule “Belle” Loveheart runs her barbershop and her life. Growing up as a motherless child and the daughter of a Silk Hills soldier, she starts to base the validity of her relationships on actions instead of her feelings. As loyal as they come, Soule is known for cutting up or cutting folks off without giving a second chance to cross her. However, being the victim of nightmares wrapped in unresolved issues perpetuated by half-truths, the barber isn’t as hard as she appears. In the midst of her victories, a man who houses her resentment, intrudes on Soule’s business and causes the entrepreneur to question her beliefs and the placement of her loyalty.
To describe Monroe “Shine” Stunner, one would have to include the words solid and creative. Although prosecuted by secrets kept and poor choices made, the freelance artist and black-market hacker moves through L.A as if his Silk Hills scandal never existed. With the closest person in his circle asking him to do a job that triggers his trauma, Monroe feels obligated to fulfill the request aside from the damage. Knowing the reputation that proceeds him, the artist goes back to his hometown with business at the hem of his intentions and caution covering his heart.
The details of the heart run far beyond what the naked eye can see. Then again, when given the chance to remove obscurities and go deep without filters, are the lines flexible enough to tie loose ends?
