    S3 E10: Interview with Author Ashley Munoz of Only Once

    Join host Krista Harper as she interviews romance author, Ashley Munoz, and they discuss her book, Only Once. 

    June Book Selection:
    Only Once
    Breaking news: Hollywood’s biggest heartthrob, Ryan Prince, was caught vacationing in his hometown, but who’s the mystery girl?
    No, I hadn’t heard that Ryan Prince was staying at the very resort I had just started working at.
    If I had, maybe I would have called in sick.
    On second thought, maybe I wouldn’t have, because I really needed that paycheck. Being a single mother and having a lapse in child support had made me that desperate.
    Still, I would have rather avoided the circus that rolled into Hawk Tail Resort and the man who sauntered in with it.
    All these years later and he was still that same gorgeous football player I left behind in college.
    Except now he wasn’t gracing the gridiron unless it was for a movie role.
    I assumed he wouldn’t even recognize me, not with the actress on his arm and the crowd pressing in around him.
    Ryan Prince didn’t just recognize me; the angry tilt of those lips on that too perfect face told me he remembered exactly what I did when I left.
    I thought maybe this was a gift, a way to put the past to rest…but the look on his face told me he had plans to dig up everything that was unfinished between us.
    The summer was about to end, but it felt like my penance for the last decade was about to begin.

    A very special thank you to our episode sponsor, K. Forest and her book, Unwanted Inheritance (Santos "Sonny" Ferrari Story Book 1).
    My intentions were to have a summer of fun with my twin brother before embarking on creating my own legitimate empire separate from the criminal enterprises of my family. 
    Everything was going as planned until I met two women. 
    One would pull me into the seedy world I had always avoided. She brought summer lust along with street racing, assaults and murder. 
    The other woman gave me glimpses of the life I wanted in the light with passion and tenderness. 
    When my actions began to spiral us all into a dark vortex, I realized that fate made the final choies for my future.

    S3 E9: IG LIVE Book Discussion Gray Hair Don't Care

    S3 E9: IG LIVE Book Discussion Gray Hair Don't Care

    Join host Krista Harper and special guest, Cindi Page as they discuss May's book, Gray Hair Don't Care.

    May Book Selection:
    Gray Hair Don't Care

    Everything went wrong. And then she went gray.

    At 47, newly divorced makeup artist Lela Bennett is dreading her next steps. Dating. Meeting people. Not letting herself go. But then she runs into Donovan James and tries something different—sleeping with her sexy crush from college. Unfortunately, in a post-orgasm stupor, Lela confesses she was in love with Donovan all those years ago. He responds by leaving while she sleeps. The next morning, her gray hairs are practically taunting her. She knows she has to get it together. Forget men. Embrace her age. Own her gray.

    Donovan James is a marketing genius, but his ex-wives will tell you—nothing freaks him out like feelings. Three years after his one-night stand with Lela, he’s focused on his daughter’s lifestyle company, but unprepared to meet the face of their new beauty brand. It’s Lela. With stunning silver locks and new confidence, she’s no longer swayed by his charms. When business starts booming, the universe seems intent on throwing them together time and again. And suddenly, two people convinced that romance was behind them are wondering if love could be what’s next.
