Love, Lies & Lipstick

Akirim Press

Four action-packed, urban stories in one grand collection. 

Whatever It Takes

Cash rules everything around us and that’s not excluding the rent. Quay stepped into the strip game not by choice, but because she didn’t have any other options. After her good-for-nothing man puts them in a bind that could get her and her daughter thrown out in the harsh, rough streets of Jacksonville, Florida, Quay makes a decision to cross the ultimate line. When her brash plot to get deeper in the game puts her life on the line, Quay has to do whatever it takes to survive.

Diggin’ Gold

There's not a woman alive that wants a man that doesn't have anything. The same holds true for Kizzy Washington. Now, Kizzy doesn't want any old, average dude that's trying to make ends meet. She needs a man that can provide her with plenty of cash and all the glamorous things her heart desires. Kizzy Washington is a gold digger and there is no shame in her game! So when Kizzy zeroes in on that guy that can provide her with everything she lusts for, she's willing to do anything, and I do mean ANYTHING to snag him.  Kizzy has been spending the last couple of years working as a waitress at a small town diner waiting for a Rich Casanova to come in and sweep her off her feet so she can take him for all he has. When she finds out one of the elderly patrons that's been sitting up under her nose for years could possess all the riches she's been in search of, she goes in for the KILL. But will her gold digging ambitions get the best of her and give her much more than she bargains for?

The Trusted

Rick Reed is a convict on the run from the law. He's been convicted for committing over two dozen homicides, and he just escaped facing the death penalty. With the help of his sexy girlfriend, Keisha, Rick is well on his way to Mexico, trekking from back road to back road. Things quickly go awry when Rick and Keisha lose their wheels and find themselves in the middle of nowhere in the strange, country town, Stony Creek. Stony Creek is a virtual ghost town with only one family remaining, the Havertys, and the secret this family holds could spell disaster for Rick and Keisha. 

He Beats Me

When Ashley first met Keon, she thought she had met the love of her life.  It wasn’t long after she cut herself off from all of her family and friends that Keon revealed his true abusive nature.  Ashley quickly went from being the target of his affection to the target of his strikes and stomps.  It’s not until Keon’s big move into the drug game goes tragically awry that he realizes the usefulness for Ashley again.  The problem is, if he can’t get his plan to work, they all could end up dead.
