Her sins traveled well beyond the sheets. Rainey Thomas wasn't looking for a soul mate to avoid triggering her âsexual appetiteâ as she walked before the Lord. She is what one would call a good, hardworking church girl who always did the right thing. Rainey and her two sisters live life drowning in the desires and practices of their strict mother, commonly known as âMother Thomasâ, a recognized walking Bible - even from the grave. That was until she found herself caught up in the web triangle of Malik Johnson, a high-ranking, hands-off trafficking drug dealer. He not only pushed Rainey's sex button, he enraptured her mind and soul. Malik made her come alive where she then was able to see herself for who she really was. The sins she committed went well beyond the bed. For Rainey, will finding herself cause her to lose her God as she fans another flame?

"You are free to choose, but you are not free from the consequences of that choice." Someone should have told 18-year-old Raven Green that before she made a choice that she would ultimately come to regret. Since she was a young girl she always knew what she wanted her future to look like. She dreamed of it nightly, so when she's handed her dreams on what she thinks is a silver platter, she makes sure nothing or no one stands in the way of her accomplishing them...even her loving and dating boyfriend of one year, Sameer. Though Sameer is everything her young heart ever wanted in a man and she could see herself being his loving wife one day, when Raven is forced to choose between their relationship or her dreams, she lets him go and doesn't look back. But what happens when those dreams that were handed to you on a silver platter turn out not to be what you thought they were, and you realize that you may have made the biggest mistake of your life, and now you want your man back, but he's no longer available? Rakim Howard is Philadelphia's most problematic bad boy. At just 19 years old, he's young, wild, and reckless...on purpose and doesn't care what anyone thinks of it. That is until he crosses path with the complex college girl Talea Miles and is immediately intrigued with her. However, the feelings are not mutual. Talea is not impressed with his arrogant, abrasive, and wild ways and dismisses his advances with a vengeance. Her dismissal doesn't stop Rakim from pursing her; he is set on getting the young beauty to see that there is more to him than what meets the eye and that he is worth getting to know. In this unordinary hood love story filled with choices, chances, love, and regret, will Raven, who has now come to the realization that she made the wrong decision, get a chance to fix it, or is it too late? Has her once loving and doting boyfriend moved on to loving and doting over someone else? Will Rakim be able to convince Talea that he is worthy of a chance, or will his bad boy ways that he is unwilling to part with ultimately keep her at arms distance?

Invisible masks... Traumatic experiences, rejection, and abuse can cause us to function as opposites of our true selves. We often say "Iâm fine" when weâre emotionally, physically, and spiritually on edge. We donât want the people around us to know that we are hurting or that we are struggling because exposing our weaknesses makes us vulnerable.Â In Who Iâve Become, Sonya shares her own painful experience as a victim of childhood sexual abuse - from being pursued by one family memberâs perversions to being used by several others - and lying to keep up the faÃ§ade that everything was okay, when she was hurting inside.Â Sonya's story shows how her abusers stole her ability to trust her parentâs love, just like the enemy tricks us into thinking that we canât take our burdens to the Lord and leave them there. It shows how we all wear masks at one time or another to cover up our frailties. The danger comes when we lose ourselves and our purpose.Â This book is more than a testimonial; it is a resource to help you take off the mask and find the person God created you to be. Who Iâve Become is a mirror of truth.Â Are you ready to meet the true you?
