“Can I massage your sexy muscles?”
When Vlogger, Jayla King scorned by love in the past directs her flirty question to the guy with a toned butt, bewitching blue eyes and chiselled muscles, she has no idea who he is or what he is after. He is over-the-line hot, period! Although arrogant, he is a luxury white chocolate bar laced with rum.
When he counters with a series of questions, she becomes suspicious of his motives and backs away! But she stays long enough to find out his dark side…
Now she knows the road to his New Orleans mansion will lead to nowhere…
“If you take off your nose ring,” he raised one full dark eyebrow. “I might oblige you.”
Cocky and living a great lifestyle while putting the dark times behind, along with his narrow-minded family, New Orleans mansion owner, James Lincoln replies with a cheeky question when YouTuber, Jayla disrupts his morning.
He should have ignored her and walked on.
Instead, his fantasy becomes reality when the woman with breath-taking laughter, sun-glazed skin and a sinfully-sweet curvy booty flips on his heart switch like no other woman.
When he offers her more than she asks for, she spits out the loudest, ‘NO’ on the planet! Yet, she drives him out of his mind. The moment he finds out her dirty secret, she brings out the worst in him.
“We’re done, Jayla!”
He doesn’t need a fairy-tale ending now, or ever! He is better off without her anyway until a freaking incident… As his expectation comes crashing down, will James walk away for good, or will he and Jayla choose each other?

Once they got inside the café, Jayla dashed ahead. It took all of ten minutes before she joined him again. The light in her eyes dimmed as she strode past him.
“Everything okay, baby?”
“Auntie Flo came to town. I’ve got cramps.”
Understanding finally dawned on James. “I’ve got painkillers in my car.” Growing up, his sister had cramps during her periods.
“Okay.” James took her hand and led her to sit inside his car. Rifling through the glove compartment, he got out one pack of painkillers. After she flushed two tablets down with water, he stared at her. When Jayla averted her gaze, his instincts kicked in.
“Did something happen? Your vibe is off, baby.”
“Someone accosted me in the bathroom. I didn’t like what she had to say. Who’s Emily?” He felt the colour drain from his face. Cursing under his breath, he smacked his fist against the steering wheel. From the corner of his eye, he saw Jayla flinch in her seat.
“I’m sorry, baby. What did she say to you?”
“That’s not important. Tell me about Emily.”
“F*cking b*tch!” As soon as he swore, he felt contrite. “Sorry.” He was f*cking pissed right now.
“What’s the matter with you, James? She’s got you really upset. I want to know what’s going on.”
“Why? You already heard her side.”
“But I’m not taking her word for it. You’re my boyfriend, James.”
“Do you believe her?”
“Emily’s a stranger to me. You tell me your side.”
“We’ve had a great day, Jayla. I don’t want to revisit one of the most horrific nights of my life. Okay?”
“That’s not good enough, James. It’s your past and I don’t care about it, but it has popped up in my face, I want to hear it all.”
The muscle in his jaw twitched. “It’s my past, Jayla. It belongs there. I don’t want to talk about it.”
“I’m not buying that. She made a serious allegation against you. I can’t let it slide. I knew we were living in a bubble for the longest time.” Tense silence filled the car for too long. With his lips pressed into a thin line, he buckled his seat belt, started the engine and drove his girlfriend to her sister’s home. He was mad at himself and angry at Jayla. But he was enraged with Emily. After he parked in Deanna’s driveway, he shut his eyes.
“Your attitude is making me tremble with rage right now, James. What Emily said, is it true? Or is she lying?”
“Asking me if it’s true is an insult. Damn it!”
“Excuse me? Are you out of your mind? Don’t talk to me in that tone when I did nothing wrong to you. Life throws us curve balls, it’s what we do with it that matters. I’m asking you what happened with her?”
“And I’m saying it’s nothing.”
She breathed in sharply. “I feel nauseous. Our relationship could well be over depending on what you say to me now. I ask you for the last time James…”
