Getting Schooled

2 ratings

Summary

When 26-year-old Reese accepts a position as a grad assistant, she has no idea an unpleasant encounter with a student will lead to the discovery of what she calls "the trifecta": fine, intellectual, and a little bit rude - three qualities she finds irresistible in a man. She has no intention of doing anything with that discovery - nothing long term, at least. But everybody knows what happens to best laid plans. Jason is a grown man. Twenty-eight years old, seasoned, and scarred by his real-life experience in the world, he's at Blakewood State University to finish his degree and move on. The last thing he's interested in is the female population on campus...but sexy, infuriating Reese might be a notable exception. This isn't a story of opposites attract. More like counterparts clash. Neither of them is afraid to do battle, and neither is willing to back down. Love and war, win or lose...somebody's gonna end up getting schooled. Contains mature themes.

Not in peril, or pain, but in dire need of the very normalcy she’s often emulated, but never been able to obtain.  Now...there’s nothing in her way, except all those years of being everything except what she now has to become.  Herself.  As soon as she figures out who that is.

The Lies We Tell About Life, Love, and Everything in Between

Summary

Sometimes, the worst lies are the ones we tell ourselves. They build and build into a façade of transparency and false truth that we present to the world...until it comes crashing down because of that one person who sees right into you. “Just one more time.” “It’s not even like that.” “I’m not tripping about it.” “I’m fine. Really.” Growth and forgiveness. Maturity and grace. Moving on and moving forward. All come into play when something that was supposed to be a one-time indulgence becomes something more - something almost destroyed by lies they never told each other.

Something Like Love

Summary

Eddie is arrogant, quite vain, and slick at the mouth - or simply confident, discerning, and unafraid to speak his mind, if you ask him. Astrid is annoyingly perky, unpolished, and a little delusional about Eddie’s attraction to her - or, according to her, energetic, authentic, and absolutely spot-on about the driving factor of a certain local tattoo artist’s “hatred” of her.  Undeniable attraction.  They may think they’re opposite but have more in common than they think. For both of them, finding a connection that is deeper than surface-level is rare. Someone they can learn from, grow with, someone who can show them things they haven’t seen before and feel things they’ve never felt, with anyone. No labels, no boxes. Just...maybe...something like love.

Pulling Doubles

Summary

All Devyn wants - besides a tall, fine husband and eventually a few babies to fulfill her "about to turn thirty, running out of time, cute black family" dreams - is to finish her yearlong internship at University Hospital. She's excited about the experience, eager to learn, glad to help wherever she can...it should be easy, right? Well, it would be...if it weren't for arrogant, know-it-all, always-got-something-to-say Dr. Joseph Wright. Devyn can't stand him, and if his attitude is any indication, the feeling is mutual...or is it? Joseph doesn't "do" doctors. Or nurses. Or patients. Or anybody else who has anything to do with the hospital, for that matter. University Hospital has infiltrated enough of his life, and the last thing he needs is a blurring of the lines between professional and private.  ...Until smart, sexy, sassy Nurse Devyn Echols comes along, and stomps all over those lines. When you're pulling doubles with the person you hate to want so bad...something is bound to ignite. Contains mature themes.

Love You Forever

Summary

Two years after leaving the neighborhood to pursue an opportunity she couldn't pass up, Sydnee Scott is back. She's smart, sassy, and maybe a little bit spoiled, but she's ready to reclaim her place in her family, and in the family business....  Or not.  That spot is currently filled by Harlan Ramsey, head manager. He came to Stacks - the man, and the restaurant named after him - looking for connection, and he got it, in the form of a surrogate family. He's frustratingly handsome, charming to the point of annoyance, and according to her father, Sydnee is supposed to think of him as her brother.  Seriously?  She'd rather not think of him at all.  They used to be friends, and were almost more before a betrayal shifted them apart. Sydnee has been comfortable in her anger for two long years, but when her father requests that they work together, they're forced to confront how they really feel for each other. A decision has to be made: remain at odds, or give in to a love that has always been brewing, before it's too late to matter?

Inevitable Seductions

Summary

The chemistry between Stephen Foster and Nubia Perry is an undeniable fact. The handsome, dynamic former rugby star is used to getting who he wants with minimal effort, but Nubia's steadfast refusal to acquiesce - while also making it clear that she's equally interested in him - is compelling enough to keep his attention firmly planted on her. Even once it's clear that Nubia's polished façade is something she puts on for the public, to hide the scarred, vulnerable woman underneath, Stephen persists. He isn't intimated by the model-turned-mogul's aggressive personality - it only draws him in further. Relationships aren't even on Nubia's radar. She has friends, family, and her steadily growing brand. After a failed engagement to the man she thought she'd build her life with - an athlete, at that - she's not interested in anything beyond having her physical needs met. Unavoidable chemistry and close proximity work in tandem to bring these two onto the same wavelength. With the eyes of the world watching, will they deny the obvious or give in to the inevitable seductions of passion, companionship, and love? Contains mature themes.

His Side, Her Side, and the Truth About Falling in Love

Summary

There’s no such thing as a right time to fall in love. It happens, or it doesn’t. Possible to fake, but not force. Impossible to simply wish away. This is the path that Rob and Iris find themselves on.  He’s adjusting to cross-country move, a new job, and an existence that doesn’t include the woman he thought he’d spend his life with. She’s overburdened by her family, learning the beauty of loneliness, and just trying to...breathe. Neither of them quite ready to entertain the idea of dating, let alone love, but they can’t seem to avoid each other. He calls it “fate”. She calls it “crazy”. Maybe, neither of them is wrong.   When pretense is stripped away, and feelings - good, bad, and ugly - are laid bare, all they’re left with is their truth. It’s up to them to figure out what to do with it.

Ante Up

Summary

I know exactly why it turns you on...because you're messed up too. Asha's life is no fairytale, by any stretch of the imagination. There was no kind, generous father to care for and protect her from the Vegas that exists beyond the glitz and glamour of The Strip. No wise, doting mother to look over and guide her, passing down essential lessons and leading her to the right path. And certainly, no Prince Charming just around the corner, ready to rescue her from working late nights to cover steadily mounting bills. You're not born to sharks without becoming one yourself. In Vegas, King is exactly what his name implies. Born into money and influence, but respected - and feared - in his own right. The privileges of wealth have afforded him many things, freedom, power, massive eligibility - while simultaneously leaving him exposed to others: betrayal, exploitation, and manipulation. Like attracts like... Her poker face has kept her alive all this time, and he keeps his cards close to his chest. Neither is interested in gambling their hearts, but when they can't stay away from each other, there's only one choice...ante up. Contains mature themes.
