Here is a sneak peek from the story. This is from Kia’s POV:

I walked out of the hotel and headed to the first place I saw, which was Hawthorne Diner. I walked in, instantly loving the smell of the burgers and fries that were being served. Although it was still breakfast, I was already craving the meal that many customers were getting.

I sat down at the counter and tried to get the waitress’ attention, but she walked right past me to go to another customer. That’s cool, because I didn’t know what I wanted anyway.

I looked around when I noticed someone coming up to the counter. He was absolutely gorgeous. From the short blonde hair, green eyes, and muscular physique, he was definitely different than what I was usually attracted to, but I couldn’t deny that he was sexy as hell.

“Is this seat taken?” he asked me.

As soon as he spoke, my pussy began to throb. I clutched my thighs together, wondering what the hell was wrong with me.

Get it together, Kia!

“No… no… it’s not taken.”

“Thanks,” he said and sat down. He flashed a sexy smile, which had me a bit wet. Yeah, something was definitely wrong with me.

“Hey, Cane. What can I get you?” The waitress who I was trying to flag down earlier appeared. I glanced at her, wondering how she was acknowledging him but not me.

“Hey, Stella. I don’t think you got this lovely lady’s order yet, have you?” he asked. He glanced at me again, which made me a bit shy.

“Oh, I guess not. I must didn’t see you sitting there,” she said in a cold tone. I rolled my eyes, knowing where this was heading.

“You saw me perfectly well, Stella,” I said while looking at her name tag, even though the guy mentioned her name.

“Well, what do you want?” she asked in a hostile tone.

“Really, Stella. Do you have to be rude to your new customer?”

“How do you know I’m new?” I asked.

“Believe me, Tyler is sort of a small city and Hawthorne is the place to be. All the locals come here and I pretty much know everyone,” the guy said.

“He’s right,” Stella replied. I didn’t even acknowledge her since she didn’t with me.

“Well, Stella, let me get the usual and whatever the pretty lady wants, it’s on me,” he said and flashed that smile again, making my pussy throb a second longer.

“Uh, you don’t have to buy my meal. I got it.”

“I assume you do, but I insist.”

Stella rolled her eyes before staring at me. “Well, he’s paying so what’s your order?”

“Aren’t you a ray of sunshine?” I said to Stella. She groaned and I laughed. I would keep messing with her, but she’d probably spit in my food, so I stopped. “I’ll have the burger and fries, please. But, I’m paying for it.”

The guy shook his head and already pulled out his money. Stella called out my order as well as his, which was the “Cane Special,” before walking off.

I looked at the guy named Cane with a curious expression. “Is she always like that?”

He laughed. “Ever since I was a kid. She’s not too keen on visitors, so excuse her behavior.”

“I guess,” I mumbled. “So, you got a meal named after you?”

“Not really. It’s just eggs, bacon, and pancakes. I just order it a lot, so they automatically know it’s for me.”

I nodded. “You probably need to go to another place to eat.”

“I love it here. But, anyway, Stella doesn’t represent everyone who lives here. For me, I love to encounter visitors. Where are you from?”

I shifted in my seat, wondering if I should even talk to him. It’s not like I’d see him again.

“Houston.”

“Cool. You must be here for business.”

“How so?”

“Because like I said earlier, Tyler is not a big city.”

“Let’s just say I’m here for business and a bit of pleasure.”

He gave me the once over, which made me bite my lip. I was doing too much right now.

“I don’t think I introduced myself. Cane Brooks.” he said and extended his hand out to me.

“Kia Collins,” I said and accepted his handshake.

“I have to admit, you are a beautiful woman. Extremely beautiful. Since you’re new to the city, maybe I can show you around.”

“I prefer not,” I said.

“Why not? I’m sure you don’t know anyone here.”

“I rather keep it that way for now. But, thank you.”

Cane nodded. “Okay, cool.” He got up from his seat and stared at me once more. “I hope you enjoy your meal and maybe we’ll cross paths again.”

“I don’t think we will,” I said.

He leaned closer to me. I took in the intoxicating scent of his cologne. He put his hand behind my chair while lowering his lips to my ear.

“Trust me, we will see each other again. I’m counting on it.”

Just hearing how sexy he sounded made me immediately have thoughts I shouldn’t be having. This was a complete stranger and I was literally wet from his damn voice.

You’re a mess, girl.

Don’t I know it.

“Nice to meet you, Kia,” Cane said. He gave me another delectable smile before going to the door, forgetting all about the food he just ordered.

I watched him leave, staring at the fine specimen walking out the door. I slowly turned around to see Stella sitting my meal in front of me. She shook her head, making my attitude change from lustful to annoyed.

“Here’s your burger and fries. I see Cane left without his food again.”

“I guess he does that a lot, huh?”

“He does, but let me give you a word of advice about him.”

“Do I want it?” I asked.

“I think you should take it. I don’t know how long you’re going to stay here, but don’t get involved with him while you’re here. He’s nothing but trouble.”

I smirked. “Trust me, I have my own issues to worry about. I don’t need the extra drama. But, I’m still paying for my order.”

Stella shook her head. “Cane paid for it, so let him. Just enjoy your burger and fries.”

I smiled. “Fine. Thanks.”

Stella nodded and went to the back to grab another order. I stared at my food, completely taken aback by what Stella just said. But she didn’t have anything to worry about. I was trying to rediscover myself and adding another man to the mix wouldn’t help my dilemma. Right now, I just wanted to focus on getting myself back together.

Excerpt:

All She Wanted Was A Diversion…

After walking away from the life she once knew, Kia Collins’ main mission is to live a happy and carefree life. She decides to do that by packing her things and moving to a city where she knows no one and no one knows her. But that all changed when a chance encounter with someone from her past occurred, leaving her wondering if she‘ll ever leave her old life behind. She wants to continue living her new life, that’s why she volunteers the one person who she believes could help do that and possibly more. What she doesn’t know was the plan she created would turn into something magical.

All He Wanted Was A Fling…

All Cane Brooks ever wanted was to have a good time with no strings attached. He doesn’t engage in relationships and never will since he believes they’ll end in disaster; so when he met Kia, he knew she would be the perfect person to pursue a new fling with. Little did he know Kia wasn’t up for any of Cane’s games. When she enlisted him to help her with a crazy situation in her life, he thought it would involve some of his expertise in the sexual nature; little did he know that Kia was going to teach him a thing or two, making him rethink about the choices he has made in his past. 

As Kia and Cane come together to help one another, the two soon realize that there is more between them than just devising a plan. But will they be able to push past their issues to see the feelings they have for each other, or will it keep them further apart?

Unplanned Love

 

Here’s an excerpt: 

It was a Thursday night and Quad was leaving the Stadium Sports Bar & Grill. He had just left his brothers whom he met up with for a around of drinks. As Quad walked to his car he noticed a woman trying to change her car tire. He walked toward her and tried his best not to frighten her as he walked slowly.
She pitched. “Oh, my word!”
She almost lost her balance, but Quad was able to catch her.
“Are you okay?” He asked with hit of concern in his voice.
She shook her head. “Yes, I’m okay. You just scared the hell out of me.”
He gave her a half smile. “I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you.”
“That’s okay.”
Quad looked around and saw that she had the jack out and one lug nut. He thought to himself she didn’t do too bad because it’s clear that she has an idea on how to change a tire. Probably more than most women knew how to.
“Okay, it’s looks like you started to change the tire already.”
“Yeah, but I’ve only been able to get one of those round things off. Also, I’m hot as hell.” She said softly, looking down at her nails.
Quad laughed. He agreed with her one hundred percent because it was close to ninety degrees tonight.
“I see that, however, it’s not bad at all. I’ll finish changing the tire for you.” He said reaching for the jack.
The woman placed her hand up. “Hold on, wait a minute! Before you start changing anything, what’s your name?”
The woman needed to know the basic facts about this very handsome man who was about to change her car tire. Where does he live, his occupation, his blood type, is he single or married? Then she thought maybe she should call her best friends Elle or Rashaun so she could keep them on the line.
“My bad, my name is Quad.” He said extending his right hand.
“Nice to meet you Quad, I’m MJ.” She said shaking his hand.
He held her hand for a moment. He felt something between them, but he couldn’t explain it. He was curious what MJ stood for.
“It’s nice to meet you too, MJ. If it makes you feel any better you can call someone while I change the tire. It shouldn’t take me more than twenty minutes if that long.”
He studied her face, realizing she looked familiar, but he wasn’t sure from where but that wasn’t important right now.
“Oh, that won’t be necessary. I’m a pretty good judge of character.” She said.
Quad stood about six feet tall, with a dark complexion. With both dark brown eyes and hair which was closely cropped to his scrap. MJ could also tell that he’s a member of a fraternity, but couldn’t tell which one because it was too dark to make out his ring.
He looked familiar to her as he favored Levi McKnight the attorney. Then again, she could be wrong because he could be his nephew or something because the McKnight family was sizable.
“Okay, I’m also a pretty good judge myself.” Quad said as he started to change the tire.
He could tell she just came from work by the way she was dressed. However, he wondered why she was out here changing her tire by herself. Didn’t she have a boyfriend or bother she could have called? Then again it wasn’t his business. He knew if he was her man it’s no way in hell she would be out here this time of night changing her own tire, especially in this heat.
MJ played with her phone while Quad finished changing her tire. She started to wonder what would have happened if Quad didn’t show up. MJ knew she would probably still be struggling to change it. For the life of her, her roadside assistance call wouldn’t go through, so she made a mental note to call and email them about it.
“All done, Miss MJ,” Quad said and placed the tire in the back trunk. He finally got a good look at her; first thing that came to his mind was that she was beautiful.
MJ stood about five feet-three-inches tall, had smooth mocha complexion, with hazel eyes, and golden brownish hair, which she wore in a bun. She had high cheekbones and dimples on both side of her cheeks.
“Thank you so much, Quad. I don’t know what I would have done without you,” she said.
“You’re most welcomed beautiful.” He said and helped her into her car.
“Thanks once again.”
“No big deal. I know you don’t know me from a can of paint, but I want you to message me once you get home. I would feel much better.” Quad said.
Honestly, he didn’t know what got into him; she could be married with three kids waiting for her at home.
Maya arched her eyebrow. “That’s not necessary, Quad. I’ll be fine, I’m a big girl.” She said as she hands him her cell phone. She knew he wasn’t going to take no for an answer. Beside she felt he was harmless; that’s what her gut was telling her.
“It’s necessary, MJ” He said as he put his number into her cell phone.
When their hands touched once again it felt electric. He held onto her hand for a few minutes before letting it go. Quad looked into her hazel eyes; it was like a spell of desire was unleashed because all he wanted to do was kiss her, but he fought it as quickly as possible.
“I’ll let you go now.”
“Thanks again Quad. I’ll make sure to massage you once I’m home.” She said with a smile.
“You’re most welcome.”
Quad waited until he could no longer see the taillight of her car before getting into his own. On the drive home, he kept looking at his cell phone to see if MJ had messaged him. It usually took him twenty–five minutes for him to get home, but he got there in twenty-minutes with great anticipation. Still no message from MJ. He wasn’t stressing if she didn’t messaged him.
***
MJ pulled into the drive way of her three-story home. She picked up her cell phone to look for Quad’s number to message him:
Once again thanks. I’m home safe and sound.
Just as Quad came out of the shower, he checked his phone. A sense of relief came through him when he saw a message from her.
You’re most welcome. I’m glad you’re home safe and sound. Good Night, MJ …
