Exploring The Character Connections in the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues Series

My book world is growing, and with that growth, the connections are becoming more and more apparent. I believe in the idea of six degrees of separation – “the idea that all people are six connections or fewer away from each other.” Nothing makes this clearer than the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series.

With the seventh book soon to be released, it’s time to draw the connections you’ve seen if you’ve been reading the stories in the order they have been released.

Some of the connections will seem unfamiliar, especially if they involve Eryn or Simeon, characters from Sloth. Those connections will be made clear once Sloth is released on September 19th. To reveal them now would be giving spoilers, and I simply won’t!

Get to Know The Characters Of Sloth: Eryn & Simeon

So, obviously, you’ve already met Eryn and Simeon in the stories they appeared in (Gluttony & So This is Love, respectively) before their story in Sloth. But there is so much more to learn about these two characters—so much that wasn’t revealed during their cameos as side characters.

In the character profiles below, we’re going to dive into some of that untold story.

These two are so different, but their brand of different works. Their opposites fit like puzzle pieces, making them a couple you can’t help but be drawn to. Coming from two very different parts of New York and vastly different upbringings, it might seem like these two would never have met under any other circumstance. However, Eryn and Simeon give new meaning to the phrase “opposites attract,” making them the perfect couple to conclude the Love is Cure series.

An Intro to Sloth

And so it begins! Sloth is the last story in the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series and has a release date of September 19th. This book will conclude my longest running series and I cannot wait for you to read it for many amazing reasons besides it being the last story. 

For one, we’re dealing with characters always meant to be (like all my other characters). However, decisions and circumstances that were too big for them to handle at the wrong time, changes the trajectory of their futures. 

But like life, their story worlds collide when they least expect it, leaving them to need each other in more ways than they first believed.

We met Eryn Peters and Simeon King in previous books in my catalog. First, we met Simeon in So This is Love (Book five in the Forbidden series) as the MMC Dallas’s agent and then we met Eryn in Gluttony (book five in the LIC series) as the younger sister to Everett – the MMC. In both stories, Eryn and Simeon mention each other and their relationship, stirring up curiosity about their romantic history.

Especially because neither one of them would just tell us what happened. 

That’s because there’s so much more to just telling us. To tell us what caused their breakup would make us want to know the complete story behind it, and that’s what we will get with Sloth

Wrath Will Be Available Tomorrow!

The wait is almost over! The sixth book in the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series will be here tomorrow, 5/3 bringing us one step closer to a completed series. 

In this chapter of the series, you’ll meet Lauryn James and Asher Truesdale – two people who are opposites all the way around but find a common ground when they meet unexpectedly. Neither one of them had love on their minds, but when they meet, love becomes the only thing they can think about. Once that happens, things unfold fast. Faster than either of them is prepared for. But what seems like a mistake ends up being something meant to be. 

I love how different Asher and Lauryn are to each other. They’re from different worlds with completely different outlooks on life. Both of them are seeking relief from the lives they know all too well. And the refuge they find in each other will warm your heart the moment they lock eyes. 

It’ll be a journey!

Have you pre-ordered Wrath?

Wrath Will Be Available in 3 Days

Book six in the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues seriesWrath – will soon be here and I’m so excited for you to meet the newest characters in this seven deadly sins inspired series. This story, as I’ve said often, is one like no other in my catalogue. The series of events that unfold will take you on a journey that will illustrate the transformative power of love. 

I’m most excited for you to meet Asher. Asher shines in this story and exudes the essence of why patience is a virtue. 

Have you pre-ordered your copy of Wrath?

Wrath Will Be Here in One Week

In one week, you’ll meet Lauryn James and Asher Truesdale. Technically, you have already met them via the blog posts I published, offering insights into what to expect from Wrath and the inspiration behind my motivation for naming my FMC Lauryn. 

All of that leading up to the release of Wrath – the sixth book in the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices and Virtues series – on May 3rd.

Wrath & Patience Are The Perfect Pair

When I came up with the concept of pairing vices with their virtues, it was something I was excited to get started on. Opposites attracting offers so much material and opportunities for organic conflict to arise. It’s a romance writer’s catnip. At least it’s my catnip lol. 

I’m five books into the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series which is all about opposites attracting along with a few other tropes but pairing the vices with virtues is the core of this series, and soon it will have a new addition. 

Wrath, book six in the series, takes a very realistic approach to opposites attract. As with all the other vices and virtues, at the end of the stories, the virtues assist the characters who are self-sabotaging under their vices to reform, and they both get the bonus of love out of the deal. 

Wrath follows the same path when paired with patience.

**Trigger Warning** What Inspired Me to Name Wrath’s FMC Lauryn?

Unknown fact… character names are the very last thing I choose when outlining a story. Sometimes the name changes while the story is being written. A lot of times, I’ll just use whatever name seems like it would fit the story at the time of writing. That’s why a lot of my side characters have similar names in different projects 🙈 something I realize whenever I reread a story.

I’ve become more mindful of this naughty habit. By looking up names and purposefully not selecting names that sound like I’ve used them before in any of my 30+ projects, I’ve avoided this mistake. Names are still the least of my concern with a story unless the name contributes to the story in some way. Or I purposefully select the name. And that happened when I named my FMC Lauryn James’ name in my upcoming story, Wrath

An Intro to Wrath

I can’t believe I’m writing a blog post about the sixth book in a series I created 🥰. 

*Silent scream*

It feels like only yesterday I was announcing Pride’s (book one) release date. And now here we are five books later, and only one book (after Wrath is released) away from completing this series. 


I am so happy to share details about Wrath. There’s so much to discuss and so much ground to cover. I wanted to take a different approach with Wrath because this story differs from other books in my catalog. 

I’ve mentioned one character from Wrath, Lauryn, although she wasn’t mentioned by name. The mention was in a passage that appears in Envy (book four) in my Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series. 

At first, Wrath was a story I dreaded telling, but over time, after developing the characters and finding another reason (albeit heartbreaking) to write this story, Wrath has easily become one of my favorite stories to tell in the series.

#CoverReveal: In Love, I Trust

I’m so excited about this! I say that all the time regarding new book announcements, but honestly? This year, I’ve worked on projects I sincerely loved working on and that made me want to sit in front of my computer to complete We started 2023 with book five in the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues seriesGluttony, returned with an enemies-to-lovers story When Luke Met Juliette in the spring and then recently a vacation novel When Life Gives You Sunsets near the tail end of Summer, and in October, I’m scheduled to release my fourth and final book release of 2023. And it’s a collaboration with ShanicexLola!

4 Quick Facts About When Luke Met Juliette

My next book release When Luke Met Juliette will go live next week, April 7th! I’m so excited for you all to read this book. I was standing in my kitchen waiting for my coffee to finish brewing when I thought to myself, “I wonder what number book When Luke Met Juliette will be?”

I’ve stopped counting after Last Comes Love, it feels. Ever since then, I’ve I’d checked in on the number, but I rarely remember what number I was up to. 


We’re officially at story number #35, making it a milestone for me. And if there was a story that should serve as a milestone on my self-publishing journey is HAS to be When Luke Met Juliette.

When Luke Met Juliette is a culmination of everything I’ve learned about storytelling and what I discovered on my own just doing it. I am sincerely in love with this story and the breadth of these characters and their character arcs. 

There’s so much I want to say about this story but I want for some of you to read it first so I can talk with you and not atyou lol. 

With that said, there are some quick facts I can share about When Luke Met Juliette that I think you’d find interesting. Some of these will be facts you’ve heard me mention before, other facts you expect from my stories, but here they are anyway.

#ComingSoon: When Luke Met Juliette Coming April 2023

An enemies-to-lovers story I really enjoyed writing. I’m also thinking that writing about university life and the business of college sports is my jam! I sincerely had a lot of fun creating the characters for my next book release and I’m confident you will too. 

The title is When Luke Met Juliette, and this one is pure magic. Not in the literal sense. But in how these two come together and how electric their connection is on the page. You will literally ⚡️feel ⚡️the words in this one.

Because When Luke Met Juliette is an experience. 

Check out the cover and see the synopsis below. When Luke Met Juliette will be released Friday, April 7th

Coming Later This Month…

I have one more book to release before the year ends. And appropriately, it’s a New Year’s Eve story!

Home Before Midnight is a follow up to Home Before Christmas – a short holiday story that follows a separated Jaleel and Eva Gordon as they fulfill their son’s one and only Christmas wish… for his separated parents to spend the holiday under the same roof.

Home Before Midnight brings us three years after that story, and things are better than ever, with a new challenge sprinkled in.

Home Before Midnight is due out later this month. Check out the cover and synopsis below…

Gluttony is available now for pre-order

Book 5 in the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series, Gluttony, is available now for pre-order.

Gluttony is fittingly the longest book in the series and is chock full of layers. I really love how dynamic and thematic this story is and I’m looking forward to sharing teasers and at least one sneak peek. Below is the synopsis and link to pre-order. 

Gluttony will be available on January 27, 2023.

I’ll have a “what to expect” post live in the coming weeks.

Meet The Characters of Gluttony (Video)

When I make trailers for my upcoming releases, that’s when I know it’s really happening. As well as when I create the synopsis, since I take extra time and pay special attention when creating the synopses for this series.

I published the character trailer for Gluttony on YT, so of course I had to share it here too. I have a couple of other trailers on the way since I love making them so much.

The characters and their story are really appealing to me.

Gluttony’s “What to Expect” post might be my favorite thing to write for Gluttony’s promo season. I’ve spent so much time with these characters and their story, and I can’t wait to share all there is to know about them.   

Let me just drop this trailer here and be back with that write up, because I have a lot to say.

Stay tuned for teasers!

#SampleSunday: So This is Love

It’s the final Sunday before release day, so I just had to post a sample from So This is Love. This is one of my favorite scenes from the book. The restraint! I love these two. This clipped scene is from a flashback. There are a few flashback moments in the story, most of which are set in the present day, so they blend with the story. So This is Love drops this week!

*So This is Love is still in the unpublished phase, so the text below is still subject to change.

#STIL: What to Expect from So This is Love

So This is Love will be my 32nd self-published story and I literally cannot believe I just typed that! I have grown so much as a writer on my self-publishing journey. The thinking I had at the start of my author experience is not the same today… in a good way! This book and all the other books I’ve written this year have challenged and altered my perspective on what it means to be a writer. Once upon a time, I used to think to write, to be a writer, I needed a desk, and a laptop, and to set the scene before writing the scene. All of that is still nice to have, but I’m learning more than ever that technique is queen and the most important thing in all of this.

Because like ENVY and Ready or Not – two books I released earlier this year – I wrote So This is Love on my phone.

#STIL: The Book Trailer for So This is Love

Have I ever admitted that I really, really love making these? Creating a visual representation of a story that only existed in my head, then in words, and finally with visuals, is magical to me. It’s the actuality of thoughts becoming things and I sincerely love that. The release of So This is Love is only a week away and I still have so much to share about this story.

#STIL: Who is Dallas Roque?

Dallas was a favorite of mine from Forbidden: An Anthology – the first book where he appears. The story wasn’t told from his perspective, so we didn’t really have time to dive into his thinking or how he felt about Ayanna’s decision to seduce him into paying back his brother for his brother’s trifling ways. So This is Love (STIL) will finally give him a voice, and it’s a voice to love.

#STIL: Who is Ayanna Dale?

When we met Ayanna Dale in Forbidden: An Anthology, she was a woman on a mission with a focus on dishing payback. Ayanna grew fed up with her relationship. In fact, Ayanna was tired of being tired. She’d been in a relationship with her boyfriend, Dominick, for a year, and the year had not been pretty. Despite that, Ayanna stuck through the rough times believing that things would eventually get better, despite being hurt and lied to since day one.

#ComingSoon: The Spinoff to Last Comes Love – Ready or Not

It feels like forever ago I promised to write a follow up to my novel Last Comes Love. My love for the characters, Rylee and Lennox, was love-at-first outline 😍 and after I typed “the end” I knew it wasn’t over. I promised a continuation of Rylee Daniels’s story and I’ll finally deliver it to you soon enough. I plan to release this story once it is ready and fully packaged for release, which is soon.

What to Expect – ENVY

And here we are again. Another What To Expect post for another book of mine, and I love it here! This is one of my favorite blog posts to create before the release of my books because I am forced to organize my thoughts and revisit my process pre-release.

Honestly, my author notes usually borrow from what I print here, but this time, I had so much to share that the author note in this next book release will be like a continuation of what I discuss here. And we’re talking about none other than ENVY.

#ComingSoon: ENVY is available for pre-order

The fourth book in my Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series will be released January 21st and is available now for pre-order! This story is one of my favorites and follows the relative of one of my previously published characters – Amir Jones – but this Jones is not like the other.

I’ll have more in my “What to Expect” post. For now, here’s the synopsis:

#BookTrailer: The Book Trailer for ENVY

We’re getting closer to the release of ENVY.

Book four in the Love is Cure, Vol. 1 – Vices & Virtues series is almost here! I have a tentative release date set for later this month and like I told my Insiders, I’m trying my best to get ENVY out to y’all on time. It’s still in editing. We’re still combing through it like a fine tooth comb because is there really any other way to edit? 😑. The scheduling has been tight but I have been staying on target. Fingers crossed everything stays on course.

For now though, the book trailer for ENVY is LIVE and available for your viewing pleasure.

After ENVY, three books remain to be published in the series. The next few books will take the battle within the character. Things need to be sorted, wrongs righted, and they’ll discover love heals all at the top of the mountains they move.

I’m excited for where this series is going and I can’t wait for you to see it all.

What To Expect From ‘My First, My Last’

We are getting closer to the release date for my next book, My First, My Last! My First, My Last is a story I started last year, in May 2020. I started writing the book during quarantine. I’d gotten the idea for the premise of the story in a dream and explored it by adding in the elements that make a story one I’d love to read. I took on the weight of writing a new project while preparing the release of other’s last year to distract myself from all that was happening. 

That didn’t really work out because I’d started and stopped this project several times while dealing with life and the surrounding scenes of life known as the pandemic.

Nevertheless, I did type the end and created a story about two friends whose destinies run into more obstacles than hurdles on a track. It stars characters who are relatable, who are – what I like to describe them as – frustrating, and characters who embody the saying that the people who hold us back the most are ourselves.

#BookTrailer: Another Book Trailer For ‘My First, My Last’

I can’t believe my next book drops in one week! The number of times I’ve started and stopped this project during quarantine I wouldn’t be able to tell you. I stopped soooo many times. Between being pregnant, living on lockdown (which wasn’t a huge change for a homebody like me), and the war against black consciousness, I was too through in 2020, and writing was the last thing I wanted to do. 

But you know what? 

I know more than anything that out of all the chapters, chapter one in My First, My Last is one of the most solid because I must have read that chapter over fifty times when restarting this manuscript for the hundredth time lol.

#SampleSunday: My First, My Last

I’m borrowing this sample from the very first chapter in My First, My Last. This chapter is long because it is an introductory one. It is one of my favorite chapters in the book because this is the exact moment when Ayla and Hassani meet *swoon*. Now, it’s not the entire first chapter. You’ll have to subscribe to my newsletter to get that. Insiders receive a sneak peek at the first chapter days before release day. As always, since this work is not yet published, the text below has not gone through final edits and is subject to change. Enjoy and stay tuned for more 😉.

#CoverReveal: ‘My First, My Last,’ Coming June 25th

My next book release has a release date! On June 25th, you’ll meet Ayla and Hassani – two characters that frustrated me and worked my nerve but who I fell absolutely in love with. Their story is so amazing, ya’ll! The connection you will form with these two might last a lifetime. The last time I had this feeling about characters, I wrote Girl Code, Mr. & Mrs. Jones, and Last Comes Love. That, to me, is an excellent sign. I can’t wait to share samples and teasers with you! But for now, here is the cover and the synopsis…

#BookTrailer: Coming This Summer From Brookelyn Mosley…

All of my books bring with them some kind of excitement, but I don’t think I’ve ever been THIS excited to share the news about a project the way I am with this one. Okay, maybe I have been this excited, but Linda listen 😆

My First, My Last is a story I started working on in 2020 during quarantine. I started and stopped this project so many times, but the one thing I said I would do with this story was take my time because it deserved that much patience and more.  The concept for the story came to me in a dream, and I built upon the idea to give you what you’ll read this summer.

Look What’s Coming Soon to ByBrookelynMosley.com…

I’ve been quiet around these parts, but I promise I’ve been productive. My first release of the year is being edited as we speak and is due for release soon-ish. I’m currently at work on the 4th book in the Love Is Cure series. And now, I’m preparing to launch a new series of mugs inspired by my story, Ebb & Flow!

Up Next…

I feel like my books follow a similar theme in the years they are published. Last year was a time for my characters to redeem themselves from past decisions. This year, I really think these characters are here to frustrate me and you know what? I’m here for it! 😊

The visuals…

#TeaserTuesday: GREED

You’ve been hearing about Bryant Greene since Last Comes Love and now you get to meet him. If you read the second book in the Love Is Cure Series, LUST, you got a sneak peek at chapter one from GREED.

(Please note: GREED is the final book in the series to get a sneak peek in a previously published book.)

Anyway, things continue to get interesting, especially with the addition of a familiar character from Loveless, Zoe Stewart.

GREED is scheduled to drop next month! Here’s a teaser…

What To Expect: Loveless

Loveless will be my 26th self-published story and the third official continued story from Forbidden: An Anthology and I’m excited for you to see what Joi Friday has been up to a year after her short story ended.

Loveless is a novella consisting of mild urban fiction elements and heavy on the black romance. It’s a love story, but not your typical love story, which I honestly favor writing. But with Loveless, even I can admit the story and plot are different for me. It’s not a typical love story because of how the heroine meets and falls for the hero. She does so while being tied up in a twisted situation. In Loveless, she’s exposed to two different worlds regarding relationships with men.

Read More

#SampleSunday: Loveless

The third continuation from Forbidden: An Anthology will soon be here. Watching these characters grow in their own way in each story and delivering stories that are so different from the last has truly been a treat.

Anyway, here’s a sample from Loveless

*Loveless is still unpublished so text is subject to change.

#LovelessNovella: Who Is Jeremiah Rhames?

Jeremiah Rhames. Does his name sound familiar? If you read my No Fraternizing series, it will. Jeremiah was the detective who interviewed Lila at the precinct when Romello was dragged in on charges in part 2 of the series. Jeremiah also appeared in part 3 of No Fraternizing, with a more significant role as the source to reveal Romello and Lila’s connected past. Just as he changed the course of the stories in part 2 and part 3, Jeremiah’s role in Loveless is just as significant.

Read More

#LovelessNovella: Who Is Joi Friday?

Joi Friday. She’s probably one of my most disliked characters I’ve written about to date. She’s an undeniable bad guy with a backstory that helps make sense of the person she becomes when readers first meet her in Forbidden: An Anthology.

She hints at it at the start of her story “Decadent Contradictions.” But because the story was a short story, we really didn’t have the time to get too deep into it. Loveless allows us to peel back Joi’s layers and to sort through the complexities that molds her character.

Read More

#CoverReveal: Loveless, Coming Fall 2020

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.

#SampleSunday: LUST

It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve posted a sample Sunday. From the pages of LUST, here’s a sneak peek at my next release due out this month.

*This story is currently unpublished and is still being edited. Text may change before publication…

#CoverReveal: LUST Is Coming This Summer

To say it’s been a struggle to get in front of my computer these past few months would be an understatement. There’s been a lot going on, but I have been pushing myself to get these books out to you. I have three books currently in editing and the first of the batch is ready to go. One of which is LUST, book two in the Love Is Cure Series. You have been hearing about Pryce Williams since Last Comes Love and he made his first appearance in my previous release, Meant To Be. Now you will meet the man himself and boy does he have some redeeming to do. Check out the cover and the synopsis below.

#SampleSunday: Meant To Be

In just five days, my next release Meant To Be will be available for download! This novella is a friends-to-lovers meets love after loss story that will warm your heart and alter your perspective on a few things. This isn’t one of my stories with twists and turns but it will keep you engaged and rooting for August and Genesis all the same.

Since the story has not been published yet, it is still subject to edits…

#TeaserTuesday: Meant To Be

We’re getting closer to release day! I’ve gone through so many different phases of anticipation with this book. Falling in love, being frustrated, falling in love a second time, worrying over the little things, then falling in love with the story yet again. The editing process was a trip this time around because I’m dealing with an area in romance that’s a bit foreign to me. Love after loss isn’t a focus in romance I’ve ever done. I’ll be doing it again when I work on Rylee Daniels’s story (Last Comes Love). But this story, THIS story? Is truly one of the stories I really love with my whole heart. Here’s a teaser, clipped from one of my favorite scenes in Meant To Be…

#MeantToBeNovella: Meet Genesis

So you’ve met August Hall, right? If you’ve yet to meet him, you should! Now, though, it’s Genesis’s turn. As I mentioned, we didn’t get much of a chance to learn a lot about Genesis and August in “Karma Coated” from Forbidden: An Anthology. It was a quick story, so I designed a story that gave you just enough to move the sequence of events along. With their continued story in Meant To Be, we get to know these two in a more intimate way and fall in love with unique aspects of their characters… I know I did.

Genesis is many things, but at the top of the list…
