Satisfaction by LaRonda Coleman

I asked readers and authors to write a short story or poem to this prompt: His misty black eyes pierced her soul and caused her body to tremble. He began to speak.

*Disclaimer- Mature readers only.

His misty black eyes pierced her soul and caused her body to tremble. Her eyes tracing over the silhouette of his lips. She hardly noticed she was biting her bottom lip. In that moment she felt an oddly familiar sensation breezing down her neckline, following the course of her pulsating veins…hunger! She began to imagine kissing his lips, caressing his frame as he pulled her closer and closer. Returning the kiss, he gently stroked her nipples as they pierced through her blouse. She began to tremble. Her legs became weak and in that moment he led her to the couch slowly lying her down. His fingers gently gliding down to her thighs maneuvering his way to her womanhood. Slowly he inserted his fingers deep inside as she took a long, deep breath. She could no longer contain herself as she reached the peak of orgasm. Tears of pleasure streaming down her cheeks. He slowly begins to kiss her, sliding his tongue between her lips and into her mouth. As they kiss, he penetrates her with his swollen manhood. She whispers, ‘Oh God, thank you. I have so missed this feeling”. Paige! Did you hear me? he asks.

Book Spotlight – Confessions – Michelle D Rayford

Which five words best describe Confessions?

Secrets, lies, scandal, sexy and revenge.

Can you share one highlight from the book? 

“You know, Robyn is cheating on you, right?” Anthony says adding sugar to his sweet tea as if he isn’t ruining my life.

What is the purpose of this book?

Brown Girl Books put out a call for stories for an anthology. All of the stories had to contain secrets and/or lies. I found the premise fascinating so decided to craft a story about a man discovering his girlfriend is lying to him.

 Are there themes that you find turn up again and again in your work? A common thread?Oh yes. The theme that turns up in my work is marriage and what happens after the “I Do’s”. Not everyone gets to happily ever after and I like to explore the myriad reasons things can go astray.

Which character or part of the book was the most fun to write? Which part was the hardest?
The entire story and characters were fun to write. I enjoy doing short stories because it only allows for a snapshot into a character’s life. The condensed time frame makes every word count. 

Can you tell us something that even your most loyal fans may not know about you?
I am obsessed with the Black Lady Sketch show. Have you seen it? If not, you must go and watch both seasons. There are skits that I’ve downloaded and watch almost every day. Every. Day. It’s hilarious!!!!! Blippilty! Scat, scat, scat!

Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

All of the stories in the Confession anthology are uniquely good. It has something for everyone to enjoy.

Recommendation of the Day – Moment of Truth – Michelle D Rayford

When the cradle breaks the vows…all hell breaks loose.

Adrienne is obsessed with the new man in her life – the bouncing baby boy she’s always dreamt of having…over her husband Logan’s staunch objections. Motherhood. Wealth. Power. On the surface, the joyful mother has it all – but beneath the bliss, a scandal is brewing that will rip her contentment to shreds.

Logan’s professional aspirations leave little room for marriage, family…or guarding his secrets. He’s laser-focused on surpassing his father’s success in the family law firm, and when an affluent new client breezes into town, Logan has one shot to overtake his father…if his wife will get out of his way.

When the past collides with the present, will the truth set Adrienne free?
