Persuasion (Sisters-in-Love Book 3) by J.L. Campbell

Persuasion (Sisters-in-Love Book 3) by J.L. Campbell


Do you remember being young and in love? Relive the memories with Gary and Yolanda in Persuasion.

School. Music. Blogging. These are Yolanda Charles’ priorities. She likes life simple and is content to hang around her step-sisters. That’s until she admits she’s attracted to Gary Cheung-See, a web developer who exemplifies the strong, silent, and surly type.

Each time a bug hits her website and social media accounts, Gary helps to solve her issues. Despite his good looks and brilliance, Yolanda is undecided about her feelings for him and suspects he might be the culprit trying to ruin her life and reputation—no matter what her heart says.

Gary is from a dysfunctional family and refuses Yolanda’s help with bridging the gap between himself and his father. When a life-threatening illness hits the person he cares about most, he is forced to reassess his stance on forgiveness, while Yolanda has to decide whether Gary is friend or foe and if she can trust him with her heart.

 

Chapter Excerpt: Persuasion

When it came to people, I didn’t give a rat’s behind what they thought about me. Well, everybody except my mother and Joshua, my business partner and housemate.

I switched on the laptop, knowing if Joshua caught me smiling at nothing, he’d think a few of my brain cells had short-circuited or died.

I’d left Yolanda’s house a half-hour ago after sorting out her laptop and installing a virus protection program. It wasn’t the normal thing for me to do, but she was so upset about her machine being invaded that I couldn’t leave without doing something to help her.

Her father had come home after we had dinner, but we were still at the table, and he sat down to eat. After he did a low-key examination while we talked, I got the feeling he knew I liked his daughter. He didn’t say anything I could take as any kind of warning not to mess with Yolanda, but his size alone would intimidate anybody up to no good.

It wasn’t until later, when he was joking around with Yolanda, that I realized he was her step-dad. At the time, I couldn’t help comparing the non-relationship with my father to what Yolanda had with the man she called Uncle Xavier.

“You went out today?”

I twisted sideways when Joshua’s voice came to me from the doorway. He frowned, pushing his glasses up on his nose. Joshua was short and dark-skinned, which made us total opposites, but I couldn’t ask for a better friend.

“Yeah, I was over at Yolanda’s house,” I said.

His eyebrows did an is-that-so thing and a wide smile greeted me. “Boy, I miss all the good stuff. You two don’t talk in months and then suddenly, you’re over there … doing what, by the way?”

“She called me up. Something was wrong with her computer.”

He gave me a sly look. “And in your brilliance, you couldn’t solve her problem from here?”

“Not even I’m that good. I had to go to her since she didn’t have a ride.”

“I guess you fixed whatever the problem was, right?”

“Yeah, some sort of malware on her site and something with her laptop.”

He leaned against the doorway, hands shoved in his pockets. “So did you make a move?”

“Come on. I was over there to fix something, not to try and get inside her panties.”

When Love Ain’t Enough by Stacey Covington-Lee

Can a love buried under greed, lust, and obsession ever be resurrected?
Love, commitment, and protection; what every woman wants from her man and exactly what Rozalla had with her husband, Vince. That is until the deceitful and conniving Heather Ramos worms her way into Rozalla’s life. With less than honorable intentions, she’s convinced her friend that nothing Vince has ever provided is good enough and he’s no longer man enough to fulfill her desires. Heather and her overpowering influence give Rozalla the courage to tell her husband that she’s no longer satisfied with the life that they’ve built. Heart in hand, Vince asks Rozalla what else he can do to make her happy. Rejecting his efforts, she tells him to drop dead. Little did she know the strength of her words.

The sexy and very tempting Harrison seems to possess all of the qualities that Rozalla has longed for. His passion and generosity make him the perfect guy to fill the newly open position in her heart. But when he goes from dream boat to nightmare, Rozalla longs to return to the life she once knew. However, the sins of her past and desires of new lovers may have destroyed her chances for a happily ever after. In this dramatic and sexy novel, you’ll instantly become engrossed in a tale of greed, lust, obsession, and betrayal. Find out if the love that Rozalla and Vince once shared is buried forever or if it can be resurrected from the ashes.

Book Review by Kenya E., Soul Sistahs Book Club
WHEN LOVE AIN’T ENOUGH touches on the issue of not being thankful for what you have and allowing outside influences inside your marriage and relationship. It is so easy to focus on the bad things that happen in a relationship whether trivial or immense, but Rozalla went too far. This book was well written and there was plenty of drama and dialogue to keep the reader interested. There were lots of twists and turns and eyebrow raising moments. I must admit, the ending left me with my mouth open. It did not end the way I expected it to. This book is a page turner from beginning to end. I highly recommend this book!

Book Review by Cyrus Webb, TOP 500 REVIEWER for VINE VOICE
Author Stacey Covington-Lee gives readers another great read with WHEN LOVE AIN’T ENOUGH. Even the title has different meanings for me after I read it. Some of which I’ll discuss in this review.

We’re able to meet Rozalla and Vince Harper. They are a couple that seem to have it all together and a life that many would want. That is actually part of the problem. You see Rozalla’s friend Heather wants what she has, and using her subtle manipulative skills she is able to get Rozalla to question everything that she thought she knew about Vince and what they have together. What happens next puts into motion a series of events that could destroy them all or will it reinforce that real love—lasting love—can withstand anything?

I mentioned the title. When is love not enough? That is the question that is posed in several ways. Is it enough to love someone and stay in a situation where you are unhappy or not satisfied? Is love enough even when things turn violent and potentially deadly? Is love enough when you have felt betrayed yet you can’t deny what you feel towards the person who hurt you and wants to be forgiven?

You will likely find yourself asking the questions as you look at your own life and those of the characters that Stacey has created. Consider the answers carefully, because like the characters it could mean the difference between happiness and misery, life and death.  Another literary win for an author that gets it when it comes to telling a great story, Stacey Covington-Lee’s WHEN LOVE AIN’T ENOUGH satisfies from beginning to end.
