“ Actually I'm looking for someone who works here. A Tameka Johnson. I was told she works here. Is she in today?” the woman asked taking one of her long acrylic nails and scratching between a loose weave track.
Meka was taken aback.
I don't know this bitch?! Who in the hell is this?
“ Is this in regards to your food stamp or benefit case with us? Is Tameka working your case?”
“ No this is strictly personal. Look is she here or not? Shit I already told you my stamps and my check was straight!”
Aww SHIT! It suddenly dawned on Meka just who the fuck this was! I know Antonio's baby mama ain’t have nerve enough to come up to my job! MY job? Oh hell no! This bitch really don't know who the fuck she's messin' with. I am not the one! Oh no baby!
“ Well you're speaking to Tameka Johnson. I don't believe I've ever met you before. Actually I know for a fact I don't know you. So what could we possibly have to discuss that's of a personal nature?”
The woman paused looking her up and down. Her eyes doing an obvious inspection of her.
“ Oh bitch I think we have a LOT in common! Namely the fact you fuckin' my man! I think that counts as a lot don't you? We have Antonio Raglen in common you raggedy ass bitch! If that ain’t of a “ personal nature” I don’t know what the hell is.”
Meka eye's grew large. She was stunned...but only momentarily.
“ Funny you should call me raggedy. Who's the welfare recipient and who works at the welfare office. You're the one standing in front of me with those weave tracks hanging on by a thread,a hope and a prayer. I don't know what you heard bitch but I assure you, Meka Johnson ain’t never raggedy! Baby girl you got it twisted. If you're not here on official business, I really suggest you leave...now.”
“ Oh you want me to leave so your co-workers don't know what a WHORE you are don't you?” Shantina said extra loud so everyone could hear. Unfortunately her proclamation fell on deaf ears. Damn it's empty up in here today! Shantina thought looking around quickly. She’d been so busy yelling at Javis's lil' bad ass she hadn't noticed it was empty.
“ Oh bitch they gon' know today! Standing there in ya nice little pantsuit, with your salon haircut and ya damn M.A.C makeup on, looking your nose down on me. All the while you breaking up my family! Leaving my daughter without a father. Ummph! Bitch you gotta a lotta damn nerve!” Shantina crossed her arms across her chest.
Lawd Jesus don't make me come from behind this goddamn counter on this hoe! Meka thought trying to talk herself down. The last thing I need is to be without my job and I'm in the middle of house hunting!
“ You know what? I think if you have any issues with Antonio you may want to take those up with him. If Antonio ended your relationship. You need to discuss it with him. Not me.”
“ Oh you'd like to think that wouldn't you?” Shantina spat. Her eyes narrowing, throwing daggers at Meka. “ No bitch imma deal with you. Woman to fuckin' woman! Antonio came into my life and changed it.

From an exciting new voice in African-American contemporary fiction comes a novel Ebony praised for its "unforgettable images, unique characters, and moving story that keeps the pages turning until the end." The Chicago Defender calls Sugar "a literary explosion...McFadden reveals amazing talent." The novel opens when a young prostitute comes to Bigelow, Arkansas, to start over, far from her haunting past. Sugar moves next door to Pearl, who is still grieving for the daughter who was murdered fifteen years before. Over sweet-potato pie, an unlikely friendship begins, transforming both women's lives--and the life of an entire town.
Sugar brings a Southern African-American town vividly to life, with its flowering magnolia trees, lingering scents of jasmine and honeysuckle, and white picket fences that keep strangers out--but ignorance and superstition in. To read this novel is to take a journey through loss and suffering to a place of forgiveness, understanding, and grace. McFadden is the author of the novels Gathering of Waters, Glorious, and This Bitter Earth.
Her past is back to haunt her—and it's hotter than ever. . .

Book 1 Description:
My name is Lisa Simone Williamson, and I used to be the luckiest girl in the world. For starters, I was rich. Even better, I was actually born into money. My parents were once the proud owners of Simone Cosmetics, one of the largest and most successful African-American owned and operated cosmetic companies in the world.
My parents both came from very hard-working families. But their families worked hard for other people, which was a concept that neither my mother nor father ever understood. My parents believed that if they were going to work hard, then they would work hard for themselves. So when they met one another and realized just how like-minded they were, the twosome joined forces both personally and professionally, got married, and created what eventually became Simone Cosmetics.
After they had been married for a while and their company was up and running, my parents decided that they were ready to start a family. Not long after, I came along. I must admit, I had quite a charmed childhood. I lived in the most beautiful home that was located in the nicest part of town, attended the best schools, and had the greatest friends. My parents also got me involved in their business early on, because they had every intention on passing it down to me one day. So I knew everything that there was to know about running Simone Cosmetics. However, my favorite aspect of the company was its dynamic marketing department. I always loved watching the dapper men and glamorous women who worked in that area come up with creative and artistic ways to package and promote the wonderful products that my parents had created.
Once I graduated from high school and went off to attend one of the top universities in the country, I decided to major in marketing. Those college years were wonderful. I met a lot of incredible people, was taught by some of the best instructors, and still remain close to the women I met when I pledged one of the top African-American sororities in the country, Alpha Kappa Kappa. During the summers, I would go home and intern at my parents’ company, in the marketing department of course. Those essential internships helped guide and motivate me and kept me focused. Ultimately, I always knew I would return to my parent’s company upon graduation, join the marketing team, and work my way up until I was running the show.
But one of the most exciting experiences I had during college was meeting the man of my dreams, David James. David was the star of the basketball team, and I was his biggest fan. My sorority sisters and I were considered celebrities on our college campus, and we always hosted the biggest parties and turned heads everywhere we went. The basketball players were regular party-goers, and David and I would always flirt whenever we’d see one another. So I wasn’t surprised when one of David’s teammates, who just so happened to be dating my best friend Janice, passed a message along saying that David was interested in me.
Book 2 Description:
It was Wednesday morning, and I was headed to my interview with the Vice President of Human Resources at Giovanni Cosmetics. I was extremely nervous and sweating profusely underneath my makeup and designer suit. I turned my air conditioner on in the car full blast in hopes that it would cool both my body and my nerves.
I could not believe that Ken, the man who’d I’d had a one night stand with a week ago, was actually Kenneth Giovanni of Giovanni Cosmetics. What’s worse, he was the newly-elected President of the company and was now running the show. Once I found all this out, I almost cancelled my interview, knowing that Ken probably wouldn’t want me working at his company. I’d already been humiliated enough having slept with him on the same night that we’d met and not hearing from him afterwards. The last thing I wanted to do was allow him to humiliate me yet again by not choosing me for this job. But my best friend Janice had insisted that I buck up and keep my interview appointment. After all, this was the opportunity that I needed to get back on my feet and back on track. So I covered myself in good luck hugs and kisses from my parents and daughter Madison and was on my way.
Book 3 Description:
It was Monday morning, and I was sitting in my office, waiting for the clock to strike 10:00am. That’s what time my meeting with the Giovanni Cosmetics’ Board of Directors would begin. I’d be presenting my first ad campaign that I had created on my own since the Vice President of Marketing had been fired for embezzling money from the company. I had worked hard on the presentation all last week and over the weekend, and felt really good about it. When I ran it by my parents, they loved it and declared that I’d be promoted to the VP of Marketing in no time.
But the presentation wasn’t the only reason I was feeling really good. My ex-husband David and I had gotten together unexpectedly on Sunday, and all these feelings that I had no idea were still there came rushing back. I knew David would be leaving for Spain this week with the chance to play professional basketball again, and he was so happy about it. Seeing him that happy, along with him being so excited for me and my new Marketing Director position, brought back the good memories that I had of us when we were still together. So the possibility of our family reuniting, along with the fantastic ad campaign that I’d created, had me floating on cloud nine.
As I surfed the web and waited for my meeting to begin, an email popped up from Rick Barnes, the company’s Chief Financial Officer. Rick and I had developed a really nice rapport; one that Ken seemed quite jealous of. But ever since I’d slept with Ken again the weekend before starting my job, not to mention the conversation I’d overheard one of Marketing Coordinators having about sleeping with him, I’d been keeping my distance and remaining professional. Ken tried to talk to me on several occasions about things, but I blew him off as cordially as I could and told him that our relationship would remain strictly business from here on out.
