Summary:

Sometimes hurting the person you love is easier than showing them love, especially when you're hurting inside.

Saint-Luc and Naomi Adebayo-Roux aren't any different.

This is their story.

Title: Chapter 3: 3.

So what does he consider her?  I mean you are paying her to sleep with you but yet you want a Christian wife?  What happened to him in the past?  He didn't start off this way.  I really feel like underneath this straight shooter talk he is a romantic or softie underneath.  Why doesn't he see his brother?  I can't wait for this story to unfold.  You did shock me with him being 45 years old.  I pulled out the calculator to double check my math...LOL



Author's Response:

Lol, he considers her his ''personal assistant''.  Yes Saint does has had quite a lot of growing up to do which has made him into the man he is now, but all that for later. You are definitely one inquisitive reader, I like how your mind works. Thanks so much for reading :-).

Title: Chapter 7: 7.

One of them is going to have to open up outside of the bedroom in order for this to progress.  They are hiding themselves from each other and by doing that is actually causing them additional stress.  It is a normal human inclination to simply ask "How are you doing?  You look like there are some things going on?  Would you like to talk about it?"  Maybe Saint can just take her on a date since they kind of skipped the whole courting phase.  Maybe she can suggest an outing where they can both de-stress.  I'm waiting for stuff to hit the fan with her family finding out she married and to an older gentlemen.

Title: Chapter 9: 9.

I would have a hard time believing Saint was in love with her too when he did cheat.  This wasn't a too drunk to get it up but full blown menage ( 2 women ) and then say you are in love with me.  I don't care what I say, you still chose to perform those actions.  Now I don't agree with her treating him like he doesn't matter because every person wants to feel loved, cherished and wanted.  I think Naomi has a lot of issues stemming from her upbringing and she has yet to discover herself and her strength before Saint came along.  I think they need sometime alone without her school or his work, even if for a week or two in an attempt to connect.

Am I the only one suspicious she is pregnant?  Plus Saint, can you really blame her for wanting you to wrap it up after seeing you with two women.  I would have made you get an STD/HIV test before even coming near me again.  What's love got to do with an HIV infection, nothing.

Can't wait to read more.

Title: Chapter 10: 10.

I'm partially confused.  Did she miscarry, abortion what happen d then will she continue her studies in Paris or just give up her education all together?  I hope not because she might really feel like a kept women.  Then dang, these two need to learn to use their words appropriately to communicate.  They both go from 0-100 in 0.5 seconds whenever they talk about anything but sex.  They got along fairly well before, hope they can find that common ground again.



Author's Response:

They definitely get turned up so quick and get turned on without a a second's wait lol. It's hard figuring out the two with their bipolar selves lol.

thanks so much for reading :-).

Title: Chapter 12: 12.

I really want to root for these two but I am not sure at this point.  They are both are going down a destructive path separate from each other.  Something has to change quick or I see no hope.  Where is Naomi while his sister in law is chilling at the house.  You can get her and your kids and bring them to your home but you can't go after your wife?  You have enough money to set your SIL up somewhere safe and go get your wife who thinks you are cheating.  Saint is a grown man but it seems in regards to relationships a little boy.   

What I find confusing regarding Saint is that he propositioned her regarding money and marriage so why be upset to think she only wanted him for his money then in reality she hasn't asked him for any money nor has she gone out on shopping spree's so what makes him think she is just with him for his money.  She was highly upset to see him with two women so if her feelings weren't involved and she only wanted money, she would've been like "keep doing you."  Now he made another mistake because the sister in law is going to think bad about her and eventually open her mouth to her husband and mother in law which could start more issues for Naomi. 

I hate to say but this is becoming a drama filled mess and I don't see how they are going to get out of it, especially if they aren't in the same vicinity to actually talk.  They have some strong inner demons they have to exorcise. 

I hope they come together soon to even begin to heal the relationship and each other.



Author's Response:

Sorry for the late reply, but I hope you'll be patient enough to see how it all pans out :-)

They both had their demons that were trying to deal with. A simple encounter would catapult their lives into a journey where they laughed together, cried together, and healed one another.

Oh Kayden and Teyana, running away from problems don't make them disappear.  You will have to face your father and sexual intimacy at some point.  I'd rather be prepared and ready to battle than anything else despite the amount of hits I am going to take and may come out limping but I gave it my all.

Oh my goodness, you had me with tears in my eyes when he was talking to his grandpa...that was such a sweet moment.  So happy he made it in time to say goodbye and for his grandfather to meet the one for him as he said his soulmate.  No matter what happens, I feel strongly they will do everything they can to make it work and sometimes that is exactly what you need, the fight to make it work. 

Loved it.

Title: Chapter 14: Yearn and Burn

As Denzel just said, keep trying.  The reason he is on stage accepting a reward is because of repeated so called failures.  You continue with your goal and vision and you will succeed.  This chapter was fun and light.  It also still showed Gage's dominance.

I don't like Enrique either.  They are both lunatics but Vincent's a special lunatic regarding Ember.  Enrique or Ignacio will have to kill Vincent or they will die a horrible death.  Vincent dude you need to calm down.  He act like he's a 15yr old getting his first sniff of the vajayjay.  He took more time to prepare her on the river bank for the first reconnection then he has since.  Does he think he will overpower her hate of him with these tactics.  I am just curious to see where you take this story and how it will end: Vincent, Enrique or neither.

Oh wow, I hope they make it and his son comes back and kicks his ass.  The mom is ridiculous.  She has just caused more harm and shame to her daughter than anyone else.  No one had to know until she decided to march her holier than thou behind to that building and put on such a shameful display in front of a man who threw her daughter away like trash.  He is a despicable character and I can't wait for Manager Lee to also get his.  I hope to read more soon.  Are  you going to do any time jumps to move the story along as well?  I am curious about our two youngsters future.

Summary:

Some people have a type and for Alana Harrison she did and she succeeded falling in love with him. But love is so much more than a type. Love is how that one person can make your heart skip a beat with a simple look - not because they fit your look.

So what happens when someone who is completely against the grain enters your life and messes up your entire look but finally makes your heartbeat?

Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3

That is a tough one to answer?  On the one hand I would like to give him the benefit of the doubt and stay and talk about what I saw but then at the same time, if he slapping girl's behinds, twerking on his DJ equipment while I am there, it is challenging to think what he would do when I am not there and with what equipment.  This is especially a hard choice for Alana because she just found her fiance cheating.  I don't know.  It doesn't look good for Wesley.  He has 2 kids with a woman he says he can't even understand why he had sex with her the last time when they met, then to see him slapping assess.....how is that suppose to make her feel comfortable in beginning a relationship or pursuing anything with him.  I understand her concerns regarding reputation as well because in all honesty that is all that we have in our careers etc.

Can't wait to see what his reaction will be?  How is he going to handle that she literally walked out at the end of his set.  But yet again, he didn't have any clue with her being a lawyer and partner at her firm.  C'mon Wes, tell me you had some inkling this might not go over well otherwise I will have to give you a new nickname.  Instead of Diplo it will be Dunno such as I don't know nothing.

Title: Chapter 9: PROTECT

The fact that Regina admitted that information on the stand shows just how mentally stumped she is.  She doesn't see it as being so wrong.  I'm sorry honey but you are not the example of a black woman that Izzy needs.  She needs better examples and Luc is going to have to explain that what her mom did is completely wrong, morally and legally and she has to wait some time before seeing her mom.  She can write a journal for her mother to share in the future, so she has an outlet for missing her mom.  I hope they don't start a relationship right now.  I think she needs time to grieve her aunt and I'm not sure if she should still be Izzy's counselor if they start dating.  This could be confusing for Izzy as well because of her mom.  Excellent story and I hope Regina is found guilty.

Title: Chapter 20: Chapter 20

I can't wait until Amelle recognizes her feelings for Reuben, whew I can just see her standing next to Reuben while her family and his mother are behind them and the others are knocked down all around them as the dust settles.  I think with his mother and her brothers he will find out what it means to be apart of a loving family unit who will have his back and not let petty jealousy interfere with success.  Gerrie is ridiculous.  He never gave her any indication that he was into her which makes it so hard to figure out how she created this fairytale.  I could understand her obsession more if he had kissed her, slept with her or something to indicate that he had a semblance of "more than friends" vibe but NOTHING...she's a reincarnated Flew over the cuckoo's nest for sure.  I really hope he shows up with someone tonight to meet with Gerrie.  Here's to hoping Reuben starts to show some common sense  and he is faking us all out with the clueless act *cheers*.
