Every week we will introduce to you a new book from various book tour companies. This week’s selection comes from Honey Magnolia.
I’m Keisha Mennefee, the owner and creative director of Honey Magnolia. When I launched Honey Magnolia in 2018, my vision was to help amplify the voices of underrepresented creatives and fill a void in the book community. We’ve grown from a virtual tour company to a boutique agency specializing in public relations, marketing, and management. Yet still, at the core of everything I do is an overwhelming desire to see diverse and marginalized creatives succeed in an industry that often overlooks their work.
This way we get to find out about new books, discover hidden gems, and explore different genres. It’s an opportunity to broaden our literary horizons and dive into captivating narratives crafted by talented authors. Plus, the authors themselves benefit from reaching a wider audience, gaining recognition, and fostering a vibrant literary community. In essence, it’s a truly advantageous and mutually beneficial arrangement – a true win-win kind of situation. And let’s not forget the cherry on top of the bookish cake – the thrilling giveaway awaiting at the end. I mean, who doesn’t adore the chance to win a coveted book or literary treasure? It’s like receiving a little touch of magic, a gift that nourishes our love for literature and fuels our excitement to embark on new reading journeys. So, embrace the joy of discovering captivating books, connecting with talented authors, and indulging in the thrill of a wonderful giveaway experience!

I’m no one’s knight in shining armor. My weapons of choice are my drumsticks and my di—Yeah, you
get what I’m saying.
Yet, here I am, riding to the rescue to save Lena Graves from an ugly confrontation with her a-hole
ex. It’s not like I’ve given the little secretary, who happens to be the friend of my best friend’s girl,
much thought. But I’m not going to stand by and let her be disrespected either. And when she thanks
me by sinking to her knees in the club bathroom? Well, I don’t stop her.
I did mention I’m no one’s hero, right?
Now, my mother is demanding I return home for my parents’ anniversary party, and I might be the
drummer of the world’s hottest rock band, but I can’t say no to her. But damn if I’m showing up
alone—especially when my brother will be there with the woman I was supposed to marry once upon
It’s Lena’s turn to do me a solid, and when she grudgingly agrees to come with me, problem is
solved. Though we shared a nuclear hot encounter that is permanently branded on my mind, she’s
the perfect woman to be my fake girlfriend. Lena knows this is pretend and won’t expect anything
more at the end of this.
But being in such close proximity to her…sharing her space…breathing in her sweet
scent…touching her thick, curvy body… This ruse requires me to act as if I’m gone over this woman.
But this pretense is stirring something all too real inside me. And at the end, we’re going our
separate ways. Or maybe it’ll be me begging her to please, don’t go…
