It’s all about the Benjamins. Sent to Atlanta to expand King’s empire, Jaicyn and Rayshawn have another plan, to reign as King and Queen in the capital of the south. With a multi-million dollar goal and the best product on the market, their mission is a total takeover of the Atlanta drug trade. Nothing or no one will get in their way.
I didn’t see it coming at all.
Before I continue, let me issues this disclaimer…
Aside from Harry Potter and the Twilight books, I’m really not the type of adult that reads young adult or new adult books. I lurk around the genre and know the major players but I’m not searching for YA/NA when I’m buying books.
This is why I’m not exactly sure how I got Hoovered.
Colleen Hoover is a name that kept popping up in nearly every single on of my book recommendation emails. I saw some of her covers and thought they were gorgeous covers but not my cup of tea. One day, I’m trying to make room on my Kindle and I saw that I actually had Hopeless in my library. I don’t even know when I bought it.
I’ve been talking about this book longer than I’ve been actually writing the book. This one is very near and dear to my heart and I can’t begin to express how excited I am to present THE LIES WE TELL OURSELVES to the world!
Eve McMillan is no stranger to lies.
After being freed of her sexually abusive father and escaping death at the hands her physically abusive boyfriend, Eve finds herself alone and afraid. Her girlfriends don’t understand why she’s content with being their “single friend” but there isn’t a man alive that can take away Eve’s fear of choosing the wrong one.
When hair stylist, Chyna, joins the group of close friends, Eve learns that Chyna is no stranger to lies either. Convinced that she and Cameron are just having “a hard time” after the loss of their child, Chyna says and does everything to keep her friends’ suspicions at bay and cover up her pain.
Eve is relentless in her efforts to help Chyna realize that what she thinks is love is truly not. Eve knows she has to intervene before Cameron ends up killing her best friend.
THE LIES WE TELL OURSELVES is available now on KINDLE.

For those unfamiliar, National Novel Writing Month, NaNoWriWo in laymen’s terms, is a big deal for authors. It’s when we try, some of us desperately try, to write a novel of at least 50,000 words in 30 days.
I’ve completed NaNo 3 years running and I plan on keeping my winning streak intact. This year, I’m not only challenging myself to complete a new novel, I’m going to explore a topic that is a scary place for me to visit.

Five years out of the dope game, Rayshawn and Jaicyn are finally making money the legal way and lots of it. They’re experiencing life like they never knew was possible. From the safety of their gated community, their world is copacetic.
Until news from home rocks their world.
Released early from prison, King’s only mission is to regain control of the throne and take care of the people who crossed him. And Washington Heights knows there are only two people who can make that happen.
