#NewRelease To Love a No Good Nigga by Phoenix Williams #PasionateSpot

TAMIKA_TOLOVEA To the outside world, the Bird sisters have it all: money, power, a successful interior design firm, and beauty. However, on the inside, these three black socialites are a mess. They have allowed the dysfunctional and at times, emotionally abusive marriage of their parents to color their views on life and love.

Robin is determined to have a family at any cost and is willing to destroy anyone standing in her way. Raven has been married for ten long years and sees no way out of her drug dealing husband’s tight grasp, until she begins to fall for his best friend. Sparrow is afraid of becoming consumed by men and love like her mother, so she leaves a trail of broken hearts in her wake and some don’t take the rejection as well as others.

When all three sisters put their trust in the wrong men, they find themselves faced with deadly stalkers, scorned ex-husbands, and jealous wives that throw them headfirst into Chicago’s underbelly. Help arrives from the most unlikely of sources, their baby brother, Blue—who has secrets of his own. With Blue and his associates by their side, Robin, Raven, and Sparrow are forced to reevaluate their life choices, commit unthinkable acts, and are pushed closer to the line of no return.

Excerpt:

“Shut the fuck up or I’ll slap you again,” I said, my hand cocked.

Grabbing my wrist, he stood and brought my body flush against his.  “Don’t do it, Raven.  The only reason you’re not flat on your ass with a broken jaw right now is because my mother is here.  Don’t press your luck.”  Flinging my wrist down, he retook his seat.  “What do you want?”

“We made a deal, Dean.  I would do this job for you and you would let me be with Pierre in peace.”

He crossed his legs and leaned back, the pants of his grey suit rising over his ankle slightly.  “No.  The deal was if you did this job for me then I would let Pierre live.”

“So, he can live but just not with me, huh?”  I sat on the couch and watched how his eyes devoured the length of my legs made visible by my short purple dress.

“Did you really think I’d let you two live happily ever after?  How many times do I have to explain this to you? This isn’t a fucking movie, Ray.  This is real life.  As far as I’m concerned, he stole you from me.  Men get killed for a lot less out here.  He’s lucky to still be taking breaths.”

Despair filled the open wounds in my heart and I willed myself not cry.  “He didn’t steal me.  I left on my own accord.  Why can’t you just let me live in peace?  I gave you fifteen years of my life.  I helped you become who you are.  Can’t you just give me that?  Can’t you just let me move on?”

Uncrossing his legs, he bent them and placed his elbows on his knees, his fingers holding up his chin.  Looking me dead in the eyes, his voice took on a deadly tone.  “You’ll never move on, Raven.  I’m as much a part of you as you are me.  I’m in your head.  I’m in your body.  I’m in your soul.  You are mine.  My imprint is all over you.  No man who values his life will touch you.  As long as I live and breathe, you will belong to me and I plan on living and breathing for a long time.”
