Available for purchase on Amazon and directly from the author on social media.

Synopsis:

On a humid, hot summer afternoon in New York City, Omari walks onto a bar and spots a gorgeous, mysterious woman on the brink of tears as she watches her home country getting completely crushed in the World Cup of Soccer on the big screen television. Omari can’t take his eyes off of the beautiful woman so he buys her a drink, sits down at her table and after some pleasant conversation, finds out that her name is Andressa. What starts off innocently as a few drinks shared between strangers quickly leads to a scorching-hot, erotic night of passionate sex. However, what should have been the beginning of a steamy romance goes awry in a way that Omari never saw coming as he gets caught up in the deadly entanglements that Andressa was still trapped in. Her dark, dirty little secrets put both of their lives at risk.

My thoughts:

I haven’t had much success with reading books this year. Kiss Me Before You Say Goodnight is the only book that I have finished, though I’m hoping to add at least one more before the year ends. As a matter of fact, I may make time to skim through this one again very soon. Why? Because in the day that it took me to read this book, I forgot about all of my troubles and focused solely on the amazing chemistry between the two main characters, Andressa and Omari, and the drama that unfolded as a result of their relationship.

Williams jumped right into the steamy action in the first chapter and kept me hooked for the remainder of the book. The plot isn’t overly complicated and neither are the characters, which I appreciated. Andressa was as dangerous as she was beautiful and Omari was whipped. In some parts I found myself going crazy over some of Omari’s decisions regarding Andressa, but then I remembered that I, too, have been foolishly in love (in lust) and made some questionable choices as a result, so I couldn’t judge him too harshly.

I appreciated how quickly the story moved, but I didn’t want it to end. Spoiler: The ending leaves the opportunity for another book, so maybe there will be one in the future! While I won’t say that this is my absolute favorite book from Keith Kareem Williams, (Glass Goddesses, Concrete Walls still holds that title) this one ranks high on the list for me.

Two Jobs

Opening her tired, heavy eyes, she took in the view of the ceiling. He told her that he loved her without any prompting. Did he really mean it? Maybe. All she knew was that her brain was in overdrive trying to figure out a more ideal scenario and her heart was unwilling to to be vulnerable to foolishness once more.

He asked to join her at her favorite hangout spot. The place was her home away from home. She knew his name, his passwords, date of birth and other vital information, all of it given freely. Perhaps extending an invitation wasn’t the worst thing she could do. She’d opened up more sensitive places already.

She glanced at the time. How much of it did she have to waste? She almost wished he would lie to her because as much as she desired the truth, it would be so much easier to drop him if he were a liar. Life was so much simpler when all she had to worry about was being tired from working all of the time. Now, her psyche was being put to work.

Jump Into the Equinox

From the book Sunlight, Coffee and Roses:

Beads of sweat rolled down the side of her face and instantly cooled her when the crisp autumn breeze kissed her face. It was the first day of Autumn. The season of her birth as unpredictable as she was, when the weather would some days mimic summer and other days confuse her mental calendar because of the cold. She could sit back and admire the beauty of death as the leaves on the trees changed colors and fell to once more become one with the earth and fertilize the next season’s blossoms.Read More »

Concrete Hike

An excerpt (a very rough draft) from my book Drive: No Mirrors, No Looking Back

She would not let panic set in. Not yet. The lines were out to the streets, blocking traffic. If she could get in, she’d probably need a push to finally get her to a pump. To stop or not? She decided not and kept driving in hopes that she’d come across one gas pump somewhere within a half mile radius that wasn’t bagged or blocked off before her car shut off.Read More »

My Current Book Release

I’ve chosen to take a more difficult road, forgoing selling my books through the major retailers and selling them directly instead. It is for both financial and personal reasons I have chosen to do this. For one, I want to have as much creative control over my work as possible. Secondly, I’d like to have as close of a connection to my supporters as I can over the internet. By selling my books direct, I know a little about who buys my work and the people who buy my work know a little something about me. My eBooks are available as .epub and .pdf and my paperbacks will be autographed. Hopefully, if you have decided to invest in my career, you’ve already had a chance to read through some of the pieces I have published on this site and are familiar with my style. FYI, I like to say a lot in a few words so you can expect my books to be quick but powerful reads.

Melissa is lost and hasn’t the first clue of where to find herself. Pea can’t let go of her past mistakes, which is suffering her present and future. Sherri thrives on her vanity, but even the most vain finds herself falling short. Jane just wants to start over and make amends, but how does one mend a broken heart? Life has a funny way of connecting the lost and confused. Some mistakes are meant to be made and some wounds aren’t meant to be healed. Some wounds don’t want to heal. Despite the shortcomings and differences, these ladies find themselves all singing the same tune. Beauty, passion, art, fear and love all had their hands in the composition of the ladies’ song—a song that reveals the deepest layer of each one’s being.

Blended Ink: Erotic Anthology

Recently, I got the chance to read Blended Ink after purchasing it nearly a month ago. I had been in talks with Chris Ringo, one of the authors, for quite some time about purchasing the book. Unfortunately, a few days after I told him I’d buy it from him, he passed away. However, another door was opened as I was able to get in touch with Shawn Starling, who is another contributing author to the book, and I’ve been introduced to some of Starling’s other work as a result. I finally got around to reading it and now I’m able to give my take on this anthology.Read More »
