Synopsis: Ain’t nothing but a heartbreak is what twenty-five-year-old Ariel Sweeny keeps telling herself when it comes to her boyfriend of the last five years, “Trouble.” He most definitely lives up to his name, causing trouble everywhere he goes. He’s trouble in the streets, and most importantly, he has trouble keeping it in his pants. Even still, Ariel loves Trouble down to her soul and can’t imagine her life without him in it.
On the other hand, there’s Shea Logan, aerospace engineer. He’s gorgeous, smart, funny and did I mention he’s single with a great head on his shoulders and lots of money in his pockets. If there were a checklist of what the perfect man should be, he would hit every mark. He has been Ariel’s shoulder to lean on, cry on, and all the other sentimental crap you could think of for the last ten years. Any time something goes wrong in Ariel’s life, she runs right into the arms of Shea. How many more sad songs will he listen to from Ariel before he finally pulls the plug for good?
Rough around the edges, raised by her father after her mother’s death at the mere age of three years old, we have the chocolate beauty named Tali Morris. She’s hard on the outside and inside because that’s how her father raised her to be. But what happens when she runs into the right one, the one who can melt her heart like hot lava?
These four lives will become intertwined in this story of jealousy, hate, love and resentment. Will Ariel finally come to her senses and see what’s been in front of her all this time? Who really has Trouble’s heart? Is it Ariel, or is it someone else? Shea has tried time and time again to get Ariel to come to her senses when it comes to this thing called love, but there’s only so much you can do when someone is addicted to heartbreak.
Review: I loved it!
Women can be so deceitful! That really was a bomb that Ariel dropped on Tali. I don't feel sorry for Shea at all at this point!!

Synopsis: Betrothed at birth, bound unknowingly to a deadly covenant from origin and born to be a tool for another, Hauwa grows up innocently in her community at Northern Nigeria full of promises for her dream of helping abused souls. But at 12, she is forced into an early marriage, which she resists. Confined, yet she remains unyielding. She later escapes a brutal abduction and flees to the UK.
In the UK, she finds her dream, new identity and a long gratified love in Bala who she believes built her life.
When the already won battle rekindles, she receives a sudden call from a stranger who claims he has kidnapped her husband and armed with ultimate judgement for her past betrayal.
Alone, she faces this battle that poises to destroy everything she has worked for, her career, her dream, her family and her loving husband. Staying unbreakable as usual, she jets out to conquer, this time once and for all. But not without a price, not without sacrifice.
Victory is the only pillar that would sustain her. She goes for it despite looming danger, many distractions and continuous temptation in every angle.
This is a touching story of a vulnerable and helpless girl who determines to thrive amidst hot opposition from her loved ones... This book makes you understand that your parents, siblings and your relatives could be barricades in your path of success, only YOU, a stroke of luck, your determination and your star will remain to aid you; at times, they might not even be enough to give that succour because there has been war from the origin... And that is her story.
Review: I like this story bc it came from a different story that I'm uses to!! Some Africa ppl are raised different then some but how can u have sex with a child that's so young and then just throw her away bc of something that was out of her control.
