Every Tuesday, here at Mocha Girls Read we feature a new book by a new to most of us author. The books are across different genres, mostly new releases and are by mostly independently published authors. This way we get to find out about new books and the authors are introduced to a new audience. Basically, it’s a win-win kinda situation. And the icing on the bookish cake is the giveaway at the end. I mean who doesn’t love a giveaway.

He had no way of knowing that meeting a mesmerizing beauty would have the power to derail everything…

I approached Paul at the helm. He handed me a beer and gave me a sly half smile.
“Thought you were leaving?” His half smile morphed into a full-blown shit- eating grin.
“Yeah, me too.” I knocked back half the beer in two large gulps.
“She got you, didn’t she?”
“Yeah,” I grinned and nodded, “she did.”
Paul guffawed. “I knew it. I told Nadine when we met you two, ‘That boy doesn’t know what hit him!’” He chuckled once more and clinked our bottles together. “She’ll take good care of you. That’s a good woman. I can tell.”
“The best,” I said.
“Well, I don’t know about the best. You have met my wife?” He grinned again, and we both laughed.
“So how did you and Nadine meet?”
Paul grinned and took another sip of his beer.
“I used to work with her brother down at the shipyard. She was the most beautiful looking girl I’d ever seen, but she was a skinny little thing back then and mean as a snake. She did not fancy me. Every day when she would drop her brother off at work I would say, ‘Good Morning, Nadine,’ and she would roll her eyes and drive away. One day, her brother forgot his lunch, and she came to drop it off. Now, I never ate much for lunch, a piece of chicken between two slices of bread with some pepper sauce. She took one look at my pitiful lunch, screwed her face up and walked away. The next day, her brother gave me a bag.” Paul’s face spread into a wide grin. “Inside was a container with peas and rice, curried goat and a slice of coconut bread. Best meal I’ve ever had.” He laughed.
“So, she talked to you after that?”
“No,” Paul laughed as if I’d made the most absurd suggestion,” but,” He held up an index finger and wagged it at me. “That’s when I knew I had a chance.”
We laughed again.
“So, I know what happens when you cross a Bajan woman. What happens when you try to leave one?”
“I don’t know, man,” Paul shrugged and took another sip of his beer, “I’ve never tried.”
