by Jessica Pots
Available in Kindle Unlimited

Wynter

I placed an ad for an assistant…didn’t think anyone would apply.

But, I only had four requirements—punctual, organized, non-smoker, night owl.

After countless failed attempts I think I’ve finally filled it permanently with the quirky soul who now sits at the desk across from mine.

Problem is, she fits in to my world more than she really should.

Now, I realize I haven’t just found the perfect woman for the job. I think I’ve found the perfect woman for me…

Brooklyn

In this great big star-studded metropolis, I now work for a woman whose aim is to stay as invisible as I already am.

I respect her. I admire her. But, I know nothing about her.

And day by day, I seek to find out more.

This job, well, it’s peculiar.

But I love it.

They say never fall in love with the boss, right?

Oops…

 

SHE GOT HOPS

by Joi Miner
Available in Kindle Unlimited

What happens when you mix lesbians, love, and basketball?

All ballers ain’t lesbian, and all lesbians can’t play ball. But Jordin Martinez was the best of both worlds.

Jordin “Hops” Martinez was a lover of women, ball, and family. Not coming from the best life, she knew the only way to get out was basketball, and it was her first love. With her brother, Joose and his best friend Sauce, they worked hard to make sure they got out of Alabama, and the whack lives they’d lived. But the lil’ hustle they had on the side may end up ruining their lives… and their chance at a future. She had so much goin’ on that there was no time for love, until… her.

Jordan “Joose” Martinez has always been the man of the house, looking out for his mama and sister. With his Pops never being an example, he did the best he could and provided. When his dreams of playing ball became a memory, he drove Hops to be their family’s savior. But when she showed a passion for more than basketball, he realized that his attempts to protect her may have caused her more harm than good.

Saul “Sauce” Solomon wanted two things in life: money and hoes. He’d been in love with Hops since he first met her and her Twin brother Joose in the fifth grade, but she never gave him any play. All he wanted was a chance, but when he found out that she was lesbian, all his hopes came crashing down. A man scorned is a dangerous thing. Will he be able to put his feelings to the side and remain loyal to the crew… or will his determination to persuade Hops that her being gay is “just a phase”?

Briana Miles never thought she’d fall in love. And definitely not with a girl. But when she met Hops, all of that changed. Hops was dope, but so was her brother Joose, and she loved the attention she was getting from their homie Sauce, too. When she was brought into their circle, the come-up was instantaneous But with fast money, danger is usually right around the corner. And Bria might have to choose between the woman she’s falling for and herself.

For Hops, coming out may have been the worst decision she made in her life. But denying who she really was, was killing her. Falling hard and fast, like we lesbians tend to do, she found herself in a love with a woman that could cost her everything.
