Hi everyone! One of the things I love to do is give background on my stories. I want readers to know what was going through my mind while writing a particular story as well as the ideas that were created. That’s why I share particular things that you all would not had known when a story is released. And that is how my “10 Things You Didn’t Know About” feature was created. 🙂
I had already done one for the In Love With My Best Friend series, but I never created one from the Love, Life, & Happiness series nor for Something Just Ain’t Right. For the ILWMBF series, you can find on my blog through the link below:
With the Love, Life, & Happiness series, there were so many things that I loved about each book. It not only provided romance, but also friendship and a sense of family. It was a series that gave a breath of fresh air to the books that we are currently reading nowadays. To me, it wasn’t your typical New Adult series, which I truly loved (and still love), and I think you all did too. 🙂
Now, starting from #10 to #1, here are the reasons you may not know about the books or what led me to write the series:
10. Shaw University is a fictional college: Just like Baker is a fictional town. When I first wrote this series almost 11 years ago, I was going to use the college I attended, University of Houston, as the backdrop for the “crew,” but I decided to make everything fictional and thought up Shaw. I still consider UH the inspiration, though.
9. The Tunnel was an actual club in Houston: I remember going to The Tunnel during my college years, which was sort of a huge club back in the day. I used that as another inspiration for the crew to hang out at.
8. The “Crew” are actually my friends: Well, sort of. When I wrote the original story, I actually used my friends as inspiration to some of the characters. Although the stories were strictly fictional, the personalities of some of the characters were depicted from my actual friends (and even some family members). *shrugs*
7. Some of the scenes from Love Always were taken from real life events: I revealed during a book discussion that some of the scenes in Love Always were taken from real life events. I found out I was pregnant during my last year of college and I did have those awkward moments going into class (especially trying to fit into one of those desks). Although I did not go into labor in class (I was actually about to start my last semester when I had my son), the labor and delivery scenes were REAL! And yes, my husband was too nervous to cut the umbilical cord, but that was to be expected.
6. Issac’ s character was based off of an ex: This goes back to the original story. If you read the original, you all know that Riana was with Issac before she met Shawn. Back in 2004, I couldn’t find anyone that could fit the description of Isaac, especially being someone that was a jerk, so I thought of my ex. I continued to use him in the current series as well. By the way, both scenarios from the original and current versions were strictly fiction.
5. My mom was the inspiration for Melanie: When I wrote the scenes between Riana and Melanie, I thought about the talks I had with my mom and the bond that she and I had when I was growing up. Those scenes were a little hard to write because during the time I wrote Love Unbroken in 2011, my mom passed away from breast cancer. There were times when I didn’t even think I was going to continue, but I did, and I’m proud of the finished outcome.
4. The Way We Were was supposed to been the final book in the series: There were only going to be four books in the LLH series, but when I done a poll on my blog about which book readers wanted to read next, an overwhelming response wanted Love Unbroken part 2.I decided to change the name to Love Always and it showed not only Riana and Shawn maturing into young adults, but it changed everyone in the entire series.
3. The poems written in Love Unbroken were actually real: One of the things readers loved about Love Unbroken were the poems; those poems were actual poems that my husband wrote to me when we first started dating. At first, I wasn’t going to share them, but since the book was sort of inspired by my relationship with my husband, I decided to (with his permission, of course).
2. The Walkers: Since my husband is the inspiration for Shawn, that probably had some of you wondering who is the inspiration for Marcus. Now, my husband does have a brother, who is four years older than him, but he is not Marcus. In fact, there’s a little of my husband in Marcus as well (of course not the womanizer part). Besides Shawn and Issac, the other male characters are not modeled by anyone I know; they are just characters that I created.
1. Love Unbroken is actually a true story- Sort of : The first story in the series provided a lot of mixed reviews, mainly because some readers felt the story was not realistic. To a certain extent, the story was made up: From the prom scene to the “winter wonderland,” those scenes were based off of my imagination; but the Open Mics at The Tunnel, those were actually real. During several interviews, I mentioned that this story was based off of how my husband and I met almost 14 years ago. I was in college and met him through a mutual friend (sounds familiar). He is a poet and I have watched him perform during Open Mic nights throughout the city, which were always fun. He can also sing, and he has sung for me during several occasions, which made me include those scenes in the story as well. He never sung for me outside the Galleria, though, lol. There are other scenes in the story that are real, but I’ll let you all figure out those for yourself. 🙂
So, since my husband is Shawn, does that make me Riana? Maybe so. 🙂 And no, I can’t sing. I was in my elementary school choir, but that doesn’t count, lol.
Bonus Tidbit: Redemption was a random story: I was going to end the series once I was finished with Love Always, but after having a great conversation with a reader, the concept of Nathan having his own story was brought up. She picked up throughout the series how Nathan’s personality was and felt there was something more with his story and the things he has done to Riana. She felt that Nathan should have his own story so he could tell his side to everything that has occurred with Ri, Shawn, and with his parents; and that was how Redemption was born.
So, there you have it, the 10 things you never knew about the LLH series. I really hope you all enjoyed this series as much as I enjoyed writing it. Although the series is over, get ready for the spin-off with Kevin, Carla, and Jennifer, because their story will be a juicy read. Not only that, but you get to revisit all of the couples in the LLH series! I can’t let go of these characters, so I’m glad that I’m able to continue writing about them and for you all to continue to read about them. 🙂
Hi everyone! And Happy Mother’s Day! I hope you all had a wonderful day. 🙂
Since this week is my anniversary week, I decided to do something great and post a bit of news each day up until Thursday, when I have my HUGE anniversary celebration!! For today, I will be sharing an excerpt to my upcoming new series, which is the spin-off from Love, Life, & Happiness. This will be Kevin’s story and it will be a three-part series.
Kevin’s story will be VERY different from the LLH series because instead of focusing on a couple and their journey to love, Kevin’s story will focus on the issues he’s having with his wife, Jennifer, and his college best friend, Carla. For those of you who read Love Always, I gave a little preview of their story, so you have an idea of how things will go between the three in the series.
Without further ado, here is the prologue and the first chapter to book one of Kevin’s story. The excerpt is unedited, since my publisher has not started on the edits. So, I hope you enjoy and tell me what you think! 🙂
I walked into my house still upset over everything that has happened. How could I had been so damn stupid? I knew something was there, but I couldn’t face it. Or maybe I didn’t want to. After years of neglecting the truth, I done everything I could to live by the book. I was married, have a wonderful son, and have a high paying job that could set me off for life. Hell, I’m 29 and successful. I’m living the fucking dream. Well, I was, until Carla came back into my life.
Ever since I saw her at my sister’s house that night, I felt something was missing in my life. We had been through so much together, and now, I’m curious to find out if what we had was still there. I still couldn’t get that image of her out of my mind. The way she said my name in that sexy tone, how her hips swayed when she walked passed me. Damn, I know I shouldn’t be thinking about her, but it wasn’t hard to considering Jennifer and I haven’t done shit in weeks. That’s probably another reason why I’m pissed. Even if I wanted to go there with her, I couldn’t, especially after what she’d done. Now, I don’t think I could ever forgive her for keeping that from me. If she would had told me, I would had understood; but since she decided not to, I don’t want to be around her.
I went further into the living room and saw it was dimly lit. Soft jazz was playing on the Bose system and there were candles everywhere. I looked at the coffee table and saw two wine glasses sitting there. One of them had a lip gloss stain, which looked like Jennifer’s favorite shade. I looked around the room, wondering where she could be. I walked into the kitchen and saw that there were some type of meal that was prepared. It looks like gumbo, which was my favorite. With the atmosphere that was going on in the house, it had to mean one thing. Even though I should be pissed at her for everything she has done, a tiny part of me was kind of surprised she was doing all of this. But there has to be a reason: Either she was doing it because she wanted to or because she felt guilty about something.
I pulled out my phone and went to my calendar, just to make sure if it wasn’t an important event coming up.
“Fuck.” I whispered.
Now, I knew why Jennifer planned all of this. Our anniversary of the day we first met in college was approaching. Throughout the years, no matter how busy we were, we tried to celebrate it, since to Jennifer, it was sentimental. But between my job and the issues I was having with both her and Carla, I guess I forgot.
I shook my head, trying to figure out a way for me to save this night. Even though I probably shouldn’t do anything for her. Hell, after what she has put me through these past few weeks, I deserved being catered to; but being the man that I am, I would still show some type of appreciation for her. She is still my wife and the mother of my son; that, I can’t erase. Maybe, if a store is still open, I could get some roses for her.
I was about to head to the door when I heard moaning coming from the bedroom. At first, I was going to ignore it and go to the front door, but when I heard it again, I figured I needed to find out what was going on.
I went to the bedroom door, slowing opening it. What I saw completely surprised the hell out of me.
There I saw my wife in our bed with her damn co-worker. The two were too busy into each other to even realize I was even in the room.
I completely froze, not knowing what to do or say. I had two options: Turn around and walk out of the house, or I could kick this dude’s ass.
Before I could react, Jennifer finally turned around and saw me standing by the door. She jumped off of him with a scared look.
Now, I wondered how the hell she was going to explain this….
Four Weeks Earlier…
“Congratulations, you two!” My sister, Elise, exclaimed as she hugged my other sister, Cheryl. Her and her husband, Marcus, were celebrating their one-year anniversary at his and his brother’s club, The Phoenix II, which to all of us was a big deal. Honestly, I didn’t think the two would have a party for their anniversary, but with Marcus, he’ll have a party for just about anything.
I still couldn’t believe my youngest sister was married and had a son. I still remembered her as the little girl who followed me around and played with Barbies. Now, she was a young woman who was in her second year of med school. After everything she had went through in her life, I can say I’m extremely proud of her.
“Thanks, Elise! Maybe it’ll be yours and Jared’s turn soon.”
“Please, we have to get married first.” She said and smiled as her boyfriend, Jared Morris held her. I rolled my eyes at the sight of those two. I still couldn’t believe my best friend went after my sister. Now, I’m all for being happy, but the idea of those two together kind of irritated me. Although Elise is three years older than me, I still try to be protected over her. I just hope Jared treats her right. I already mentioned if he doesn’t, friend or not, I will hunt him down and beat his ass.
“You know that will happen one day, right?” Jared said and he kissed Elise.
“We’ll see.” I mumbled. Jared glanced at me and I smiled.
“I’m sure we’ll have a lot more anniversaries to celebrate, right baby.” Marcus said and kissed Cheryl. She blushed as he kissed her again. Marcus Walker was the true definition of a player. He practically slept with every woman that set foot onto our Alma Mater, Shaw University; but when he met Cheryl, he completely changed from being a womanizer to a one-woman man. I’m proud of him and I can say not only is he my brother-in-law, but also a really good friend.
“Congrats, man.” Marcus’ brother, Shawn, said as he gave him a brotherly hug. His wife, Riana, also hug Marcus and Cheryl.
“This is great, all of us together. Since we’ve all been so busy, it’s hard to have everyone in the same room again.” Riana said.
“Where’s Elis? I wanted to see him.” Elise asked regarding their one-year-old son.
“With my parents. We needed a night out. With Shawn being at the news station and me busy writing, we don’t have time to do anything.” Riana said. While Shawn is a reporter for a local news station in the college town, Baker, Riana decided to forgo her degree in communications to become a writer for Harris Publications, in which Elise is her editor.
“That’s why tonight, while Elis is having fun playing with his grandparents, we’ll have our version of playtime, right baby.” Shawn replied and kissed Riana’s neck. A slight moan came from her lips.
“You’re trying to start something, are you?”
“I could.” He said as he kissed her neck again.
Riana smiled and grabbed his hand. “We’ll be back.” She said, taking Shawn towards the office.
“I better not catch you two having sex on the balcony again!” Marcus yelled.
Shawn turned around and shrugged when Riana pulled him to the hallway.
I shook my head at them. Those two have always been blunt about their sex life, which everyone pretty much got used to. My wife and I used to be like that, but those days were long gone.
“That’s nothing new with those two. Anyway, I was thinking since Daddy’s birthday is coming
up next month we can throw him a surprise party. He’s been really busy with his business,
so I think he needs to have some fun. What do you all think?” Cheryl asked.
“Cool, count me in.” Elise said.
“Me too, but I must warn you, my job is getting ready for their annual audits, so I might be
caught up in business.” I said.
“That’s nothing new.”
I looked over and saw my wife, Jennifer, standing beside me with a displeased look. I didn’t
even know she came over to us. From the time we’d arrived, she either was at the bar or sitting at
a table drinking what she got from the bar.
I had to admit, she did look sexy dressed in a blue and white striped halter dress. Her medium
brown hair was pulled in a tight ponytail as her perfectly shaped lips were in a pout. Her light
brown eyes were cold towards mine as she ran a hand down her pecan-colored shoulder.
“You know this happens every year, Jen.”
I looked at everyone and saw the confused looks on their faces. This shouldn’t come as a surprise. The two of us has been like this for months. Either we’re ignore each other or get into an argument. We even got into it while our son, Thomas was present. That’s something I never said I would do, especially since my parents had done it when me and my sisters were younger. I tried to be the opposite on how I was raised, but no matter what I do, Jennifer would find a way to provoke me. Hell, I think she’s trying to do it now.
“Start what? I’m only saying that you do. It’s nothing new and I should expect it.”
“Do we really have to do this here?”
“You started it by bringing up your job. Now, I’ll drop it.” She said. She went back to the bar to get what I’m assuming was her fourth drink.
“What was that?” Cheryl asked.
I glanced at my sister and sighed. “My life at the moment.” I said. I shook my head and walked off. After that, I think I needed a drink as well.
Chapter 16 is up…
Cheryl looked toward the counter, waiting on her customer’s order. Since what happened between her, Chris, and Devin a few days ago, she has been on autopilot. She hasn’t heard from Chris and she only associated with Devin during their A&P class. Chris was right. They both needed some time to think about things. For her, she needed to focus on herself and getting through this semester.
She did feel a little bad for Devin though. He has tried to talk to her, but she ignored him, saying she needed to focus on her assignment. She figured it was for the best between them, because she was getting herself into something that she knew she wasn’t able to get out of.
The one thing that has helped her was her pills. If it wasn’t for them, she probably wouldn’t be at work right now. Between her classes, working, and getting ready for her pre-entrance exam for several programs, she hasn’t had time to catch any sleep; but with her pills, she could do anything. If she didn’t need to sleep, that was fine by her. Although Devin insisted she only take half right now, she been taking a whole pill every day. She wasn’t sure if she could double the dose, but if she needed to, she will.
“Order’s up!” the cook said, handing Cheryl a plate of chicken fried steak.
“Thanks, Cliff.” she said.
She walked over to the customer and handed him his meal. She turned around and saw Chris standing behind her.
“Hey. You have a second?”
“Yeah, I’m about to go on break, so give me a second?”
He nodded as she went over to her co-worker to let her know she was leaving. Chris followed her as she went out of the door.
They went to a bench near the entrance to sit down.
“I didn’t think you wanted to talk to me since I haven’t heard from you in days.” Cheryl said.
“I told you we both needed time to think. I don’t know if you used the time to, but I definitely have.”
“What does that supposed to mean?”
“You could have been with Devin for all I know.”
“I’m still pissed about that. After everything we have witnessed between your cousin and friend, you would go and do the same thing?”
She looked ahead, realizing Riana could be doing the same thing right now.
“I know it was wrong, but at the time, I just needed an escape. Everything was starting to become too much for me. It still is too much.”
“Don’t you think you need to slow down, then?”
“I can’t. I have a lot riding on my future. I have to take pre-entrance exams, make As on my current classes, and I need the money to pay for it all.”
“Shouldn’t you ask your dad for some type of help? He said he’d help you if you need it.”
Cheryl looked ahead at some students playing football and sighed.
“I’m not asking him for help.”
“Cher, I understand you want to be independent, but it’s okay to ask for help sometimes. You’re doing too much and eventually it will catch up with you.”
“I’m fine, Chris.”
He put her face to his and stared into her eyes.
“No matter what’s going on, I’m here for you, okay.”
“But it doesn’t change the fact that you were kissing on another dude. That’s something I can’t get over.”
“I know and I’m sorry about that.”
“But I am willing to get through it; but promise me that you will come to me if anything is bothering you.”
“And you need to get Devin out of your life. I know he’s your lab partner, but he’s no good and you don’t need that in your life.”
“I know now. In fact, I’ve stopped speaking to him after what happened. I’ll even talk to my professor to see if I can switch partners.”
Chris put his arms around Cheryl. She breathed a sigh of relief that Chris forgave her. Although she needed to focus on her right now, she didn’t want Chris out of her life.
Her heart started to beat fast, which took her off guard. She gave an uncomfortable glance, not sure what was going on.
Chris gave a concerned look and held her shoulder.
“Are you okay?”
Her heartbeat went back to normal, which made her give another sigh of relief.
“It was nothing. Probably something I ate.”
“Oh; that is why you need to take care of yourself. Let me make you dinner tonight, if you’re not too busy.”
He hugged her again, which made Cheryl nervous. She knew it wasn’t something she ate. It could be the pills she’s been accumulating for the past few days. Hopefully it’s not as worse as she think it is.
Riana sat on Marcus’ bed not sure if she heard him correctly.
“You think he knows?”
“I don’t think; I know for a fact he does.”
“How can you tell?”
“The way he was behaving. He wanted me to slip up.” Marcus said as he walked over to the nightstand.
“I don’t believe this.” she said as she got up. She paced in the small room, giving a worried expression while running a hand through her hair.
“Ri, nothing is going to happen. He’ll be more pissed at me than you.”
“I know how Shawn gets when he’s upset. No one can stop him when he’s angry.”
“I’ll handle my brother. I’m just trying to figure out when he’s going to expose us.”
“You sure he knows? Why he didn’t say anything when he was here?”
“Because he’s planning something. He’s not going to do anything until it’s in place. So if he wants to play games, then we’ll play along with him.”
“I don’t like this.”
“I know and I’m really sorry you’re in the middle of all this.” he said. He went over to her and kissed her.
“This is my fault. If I didn’t…”
“Don’t blame yourself for what’s going on.”
He put his hands around her waist, sliding them to her ass. His erection was pressed against her as he bent down to suck on her breast.
“Are you being serious right now? Your brother knows about us and you want to have sex? ” she asked.
He picked her up and smiled.
“We’ll deal with that later. Right now, I need to be inside of you again.”
Riana was a little nervous at the fact that Shawn could walk in again, but how the way Marcus was looking at her, she couldn’t resist.
She kissed him and the two went back to the bed.
Shawn pulled up to the girls’ apartment. He looked towards the door, contemplating what he was about to do. He knew he should keep what he found out to himself, but he felt Britney needed to know as well.
He got out of his car, hoping she was there when he approached the door. Before he could knock, Britney opened it, giving him a surprise look.
“Hey. What are you doing here? If you’re looking for Ri, she’s not here.”
“I know. I came to see you.” he said.
He walked inside and Britney closed the door. She wasn’t sure why he wanted to see her. Besides being around Riana, the two barely spoke to each other.
“What’s going on, Shawn?”
He turned around and stared at her.
“I need to tell you something. It’s about my brother and your friend.”
Britney looked confused when Shawn sat down. Why would he refer to Riana as “her friend”?
“Shawn, you’re scaring me. What the hell is going on?”
“I found out the two has been seeing each other behind our backs. I don’t know if they have already fucked, but they done some other stuff.”
“I had some suspicions, because we know how Riana can be. She’s been nervous around everyone, especially Marcus after what happened. Anyway, my internship partner saw the two making out in the bowling alley’s restroom.”
Britney shook her head. She couldn’t believe Shawn was telling her this.
“She could be saying that because she wants you for herself.”
“I have proof Britney. I found this in my apartment when I went there today. I gave this to her just the other day.” he said as he pulled out Riana’s charm bracelet.
“I haven’t been by my apartment for the past two days. Since I’ve been busy I just showered at work and went straight to class. I found it near Marcus’ bedroom. That and I saw her car parked by the apartment today. She knew I was going to be at the station late, so she had no business being there.”
“Damn.” Britney said. She sat down beside him and lowered her head.
“I had my own suspicions about them, but after talking to Monica, I let them go.”
“Well, believe it. They’ve been cheating; no telling how long they have been.”
“There’s still some things that doesn’t add up. How are they able to sneak around?”
“Trust me, they have found a way.”
“Why haven’t you confronted them?”
“I will, but not right now. In fact, I have the perfect time to do it.”
Britney glanced at Shawn.
“This is karma. I did this to her, so now I’m getting it back.”
“If you look at it, it’s pretty funny. Hysterical even. I mean, I was with Isaac for months before she found out, and now, she screwing my boyfriend behind my back. The worse part about it is that it’s your brother.”
She started to laugh, which didn’t make Shawn feel any better.
“I’m glad you’re finding this funny.”
“What more can I do? I knew the relationship I had with Marcus was too good to be true. I thought I found some sort of happiness after the miserable way I treated Riana, but instead, she backstabbed me.”
Shawn went to her and gave her a hug.
“Listen, I’m just as pissed and irritated about the entire thing. We made a pact that we would never push our way on any of our girlfriends. I guess he forgot about that as soon as he saw Riana. I knew he wanted her that day in our apartment. The fact that he looked me in my face and say he would never pursue her is what making me want to go back to the apartment and kill his ass.” he said. He went over to the wall and punched it, causing Britney to become nervous.
“Shawn, it’s not entirely Marcus’ fault. Riana is as much to blame for this as he is. I’m pretty sure she developed feelings once she saw him naked in the bathroom.”
Shawn rolled his eyes and went back to the couch.
“All of this is bullshit.”
“I agree. So, what’s your plan?”
“I’m not telling you.”
“Because this is something I would like to do on my own.”
Britney sighed and went to him.
“I’m really sorry, Shawn. I know how much you love Riana. You’re too sweet of a guy for her to be doing this to.”
She put her arms around him. Although she has feelings for Marcus, their relationship was new, so it doesn’t hurt as much as it hurting Shawn. She couldn’t believe Riana would do this to him and with his brother nonetheless.
“I’m really sorry.” she continued.
She pulled away from him and he stared into her eyes.
“I’m sorry this is happening to you too.”
Britney stared at Shawn, realizing how Riana could do such a thing when she has such a good man. Not only that, but he was too sexy to be cheated on. If Riana didn’t want him, then she wouldn’t mind being with him.
She leaned into him, kissing those sexy lips of his. Shawn pulled away and stared at her before pulling her to him. Before they knew it, they were heading towards Britney’s bedroom, not caring about Riana or Marcus.
