The Drama, The Street And The Seduction

Rated 5.00/5 based on 3 reviews
I created this short story for a group I belong to. They requested a story with drama, street, and erotic elements and this is the result. What's it about? The title says it all.

About Deatri King-Bey

When Deatri was six years old, her mother was told that because of Deatri's dyslexia, she'd probably never learn how to read. At that time it was recommended Deatri partake in a specialized reading curriculum. Unbeknownst to Deatri's parents, this additional help their daughter would need was actually Deatri being taken out of reading class to sit in the hallway with a tape recorder for a teacher. When Deatri entered the fourth grade at a different school, her parents were terrified to learn their daughter couldn't read. For years she'd been reciting the bedtime stories to her mother from memory instead of actually reading the written words from the pages.

My have times changed. In 1999, Deatri was a technical writer at a telecommunications company with dreams of joining the publishing world as a content editor and author. Mind made up, she returned to school and soon started as an editorial intern, then moved on to developmentally edit for several publishing houses.

Dozens of manuscripts later, she still hasn't figured out she wasn't supposed to learn how to read. February 2006, the second half of Deatri's dream came true with the release of her debut novel Caught Up. In 2008, Deatri won the coveted Emma Award for Best Steamy Romance of the year with her title Whisper Something Sweet.

Currently, she is reading, editing, conducting writing workshops, and writing her next novels.

Hmm Deuce is not in drugs but has tons of catch I guess he got a golden parachute when he retired. Sweet story but pretty unlikely.

Deatri, you have become another writer whose work I will always read. Jay and Dueces' story was truly a fairytale. But I enjoyed it. Duece serving time all those years, for killing her rapist was honorable, even though he lived the thug life. And Jay was crushed when she felt he had abandoned her, which in actuality he did, but for what he thought was the right reason.

I also liked that he was able to leave the drug game, after gaining a vast amount of wealth while he was incarcerated. He came home to be with her, and yet, he found out that another thug wanted the woman he loved. He was again put in a situation where he felt the need to defend her honor.

Having them resolve their issues and come together again was a nice ending to the story.

Again, Thank You for A Great Read!
