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.
Once I graduated from high school and went off to attend one of the top universities in the country. Those college years were wonderful. I met a lot of incredible people. 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:
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.
Book 3 Description:
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.
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.
