Joi Friday. If you read Forbidden: An Anthology, then you’re familiar with her name and her short story in the anthology – “Decadent Contradictions.” In her original short story, Joi was the bad guy… well, maybe not at the very beginning. But a lot of readers decided within seconds of reading her short story that she wasn’t the most liked character in the anthology. Her story in Loveless will change your perspective on Joi, someone you probably deemed as being morally corrupt. Loveless will also reintroduce you to a few familiar names from my other series, No Fraternizing.
Joi is a woman in search of security and couldn’t care less whose toes she has to step on to get it. This carelessness lands her in an arrangement that brings with it more grief than the bliss she believed she’d receive when she initially agreed to its “terms.” She’s always considered herself to be the loveless type. Sex was a thing to be used and feelings were there to be toyed with. But love? Well, love to her has always been a dark mystery described in fairy tales she has yet to star in. That’s until she meets a man that will capture her heart and sweep her off her feet in an unexpected way during a time when she needs it the most. The catch? She’ll have to give up the life she’s living to fully commit to the life she needs. Will she?
I dubbed this season in my writing the redemption season. LUST kick started it and Loveless will move my plans along.
A release date for Loveless is still TBA, but it will be available for download and paperback purchase this fall. Stay tuned!
