Love & Drama: The Root Of All Evil
He’s a hitman that’s trying to change his ways.
She’s the good girl that loves to do bad things.
When they are together, anything is possible.
Zuri Caldwell meets Damon Baxter at a club five years prior. After having a one-night stand together, she doesn’t think that their paths will cross again, until she sets foot in his classroom. They try to stay away from the attraction that they share. However, they can’t deny the chemistry in the air, which leads them into having a discreet relationship. Things end when Zuri moves to California for an executive position.
Five years later, Zuri is back in Houston. Unfortunately, she is down on her luck since she was fired from her job. She encounters Damon again, which sparks up old memories. Even though Damon wants her back, Zuri doesn’t since she’s getting over engagement, but that doesn’t mean that she won’t sample a little of what he’s offering.
The two fall back into a sexual relationship that could prove dangerous since Damon has been living a double life. He tries to leave his old life as a hitman behind, but his past keeps catching up with him. This forces him into doing one last hit. He doesn’t want to do it, but there’s a reason he has to. There’s this one catch though. Zuri has to be involved as well, mainly because her ex-fiance is the target.
The two will have to find a way to get the job done without tipping off anyone, including their friends, Zuri’s parents, and most of all, her ex. But, can the two do it without having their feelings get in the way? Find out in Love & Drama, A Stand Alone Novel.
“Are you ready?”
I glanced at Damon, feeling completely terrified to what we were about to do. He held my hand, squeezing it while his blue eyes stared into mine. I looked behind me, wondering if we were still being chased, but luckily, Damon found a way to get them off of our trail.
He flashed that smile of his that made my body hot. This is not the time to be thinking about that, especially when they’re people trying to kill us.
“You know I got you, right?”
I nervously nodded. “I know. I trust you.”
We heard gunshots as I looked behind me. Damon pulled me to the edge, yelling we have to go. I gave a silent prayer, asking God to keep us safe as I closed my yes, not wanting to look where I was heading.
“Zuri, let’s go!”
I quickly opened them as we jumped off the edge of the cliff, heading towards the rushing waters, hoping we don’t die.
From the time I’ve known Damon, he turned my life upside down; but in the two months that we have reconnected, never did I imagined it would be this crazy. That’s why I didn’t let him back into my life. Now, I have to wonder did I make the right decision in getting back with him.
I guess I would never know the outcome. Or, will I…?
