Salvatrice Fontain is still reeling from the impersonal dissolution of her marriage, which was due partially to the weight she gained after saying "I do." Now, she's convinced that its only a matter of time before everyone she gets involved with will either get bored with her or find someone better. Even though she desperately wants a family of her own, she has adopted a 'leave before you get left' policy to spare herself more heartache...
Oasis Montgomery is tough as nails...or so she would have everyone believe. She's confident on the outside, but no one knows about her fears about relationships, her plans for plastic surgery, or her constant internal battle about already having what she didn't even think she was looking for...
Irie Simpson feels like she's doomed for a life alone. Wanting to be a single-digit size but too embarrassed to admit it, she focuses on her friends and maintaining a relationship with the daughter that she gave up for adoption. Her only romantic prospect is a very persistent online suitor who she has no interest in meeting. She ponders somewhat drastic alternatives to being alone until she happens to be in the right place at the right time...
These women soon realize that their dress size is the least of their problems.
Next book to be released:
"Its All Right...Now"
How do YOU deal with betrayal?
Well the new book is out, 'Its All Right...Now'. Finally! LOL (I am not known for my patience!) I've had so much going on lately and its such a sigh of relief to have this book out there; IÕve been getting a lot of questions about when book number two was going to get here. I'm so excited!
When you get the book, don't be deceived by the rather slight page number total; I've managed to pack plenty of wallop into those 164 or so pages. Just like 'Some Like 'em Thick', this story is a very personal one for me...as I mentioned before, its loosely based on a true story. I started writing it I donÕt know how many years ago and kind of kept leaving it alone and coming back to it in spurts...I wasn't sure where I wanted to go with it. Then a couple of years ago, when I sat down to write the outline, it just flowed. It was cake after that. I remember I was working at an athletic club as a massage therapist when I wrote the outline for this book; I would work on it between clients. As much as I loved doing massage (and still do), I couldnÕt wait for my sessions to be over so I could get back to my writing!
Also like with 'Some Like 'em Thick', this book will probably raise a few eyebrows and make folks wonder if it really came from me. LOL I already know its not going to be for everybody but I hope that most people enjoy it and understand the range of emotions that are running rampant through each of the characters, and how those emotions drive each to do what they do. People can handle the same situations different ways, and that's displayed in this story. Again, I tried to make it as real and relatable as possible; the things each of the main characters as well as their husbands goes through are not at all uncommon. What would you do differently?
Its sad that the divorce rate in this country is so high...being divorced myself, I can attest to it being a very difficult thing to deal with and definitely something I never thought I would experience. I wanted to be like my parents and grandparents, who stayed married to their original spouses until one of them passed. Longevity is a foreign thing in this day and age; people are far too quick to give up. "Til death do us partÕ is really just something people say but don't mean nowadays. Marriage isn't going to be or supposed to be smooth sailing all the time; hitting a bump in the road doesn't constitute leaving. That's why I wanted to explore what I did with the characters in this book; I wanted to take them through some things and hopefully at the same time make you think about what you would do if you were in the same situation. Its so easy to say one thing when you're outside of it but when it happens to you, it's a whole different story.
I loved writing this book and hopefully you enjoy reading it. There will be many more after it, trust me!
Natasha thought her boyfriend Davion was the one, until he dumped her via text message after three years and a partially-planned wedding. Now, she's met almost-too-good-to-be-true Sharif and is getting ready to be his wife, and finally feels sheÕs ready to get on with her life.
That is, until, she has an unexpected encounter with Davion at her wedding that throws her carefully-pieced-back-together world back into a shambles, and she realizes she's not as over him as she thought she was. Before she knows it, she's caught up in a whirlwind of infidelity and mixed emotions, and every time she tries to put distance between herself and Davion, she gets sucked back in harder than before. Pretty soon, she's not even sure if she wants to get out, feeling she has the best of both worlds...
But when Sharif starts getting suspicious and Davion begins to grow tired of being her side piece, she has to come to a decision that she doesn't think she has the strength to make. Continuing to toggle between sincere guilt and defiant justification of her actions, she all too quickly reaches a point where she must choose something, or lose everything...
