As the director of a youth leadership development program and the Washington, D.C. Mr. Black Organization representative, I’m known for getting things done and making the impossible happen; like planning a four-day city-wide Juneteenth celebration. Losing a vendor is the last thing I need. Thankfully, my on-again, off-again, definitely on-again lover, Stephanie Arrington, is there to help. Now, if only I can convince her to see me as more than an occasional fling. I have my work cut out for me, but soon she’ll learn that in life and love, I play for keeps.
Being the owner of a holistic skincare company keeps me booked and busy. Until a devastating blow turns my world upside down. Uncertain about my future and in need of a distraction, I accept an invitation to participate in Juneteenth festivities in D.C. But not everything is as it seems. While I am working to rebuild my life, my one-night-stand turned FWB and knight in an expensive business suit, Nathaniel Reed, is working to turn our no-strings-attached arrangement into something permanent. In life, some things aren’t meant to be kept, like me.
