Nobody's Business Review & Giveaway

M.J. Kane stumbled into writing. An avid reader, this once stay-at-home mom never lost the overactive imagination of an only child. As an adult she made up stories, though never shared them, to keep herself entertained. It wasn’t until surviving a traumatic medical incident in 2006 that she found a reason to let the characters inhabiting her imagination free.  Upon the suggestion of her husband, she commandeered his laptop and allowed the characters to take life. It was that, or look over her shoulder for men caring a purple strait jacket. And the rest, as they say, is history.
No longer a television addict, if M.J. isn’t reading a book by one of her favorite authors, she’s battling with her creative muse to balance writing and being a wife and mother. She resides in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia with her high school sweetheart, four wonderful children, and four pit bulls. During the day, MJ is a librarian, in her spare time she is director of a local writer’s group, or online connecting with readers and other authors. Other activities she enjoys include: creating custom floral arrangements, assisting her children in their creative pursuits of music and art, and supporting her husband’s music production business, 3D Sounds.
MJ’s debut novel, A Heart Not Easily Broken, Book one of the Butterfly Memoirs, became an instant Amazon Bestseller in Multicultural Romance and African-American Literature and Fiction within hours of publication. It has also spent time on the African-American Women’s Fiction and African-American Romance Bestsellers lists.

You can find MJ on social networking sites, sharing writing tips, talking about music, life, and family. She’s always excited to meet new people. Connect with her via the websites below. 

Trevon Campbell’s world changed the moment his ex-girlfriend announced he was a father. Determined to make up for his past mistakes, he gives Trina what she wanted before their breakup, what feels like his soul, which means forgetting the woman he had a one-night stand with, the woman who stole his heart.

Kai Malone doesn’t want to play by her family’s rules. Instead of working for the family business, she became a firefighter. Being a female of multicultural descent, working in a field dominated by men, Kai focuses on her job to ignore the infidelity of her fiancĂ©. Tired of his deceit, she gave in to a one-night stand with a complete stranger, someone she’d never have to see again…or so she thought.

When tragedy strikes, their worlds collide, leaving them no choice but to deal with each other again. It doesn’t take long for them to realize the attraction that brought them together the first time is stronger than ever, forcing Trevon to make the biggest decision of his life.

Sami's Review:
Kai is not your typical woman. Coming from a mixed heritage she is stunning but not a pushover by any means. She can’t afford to be in her line of work as a fire fighter she puts her life on the line for others and will do anything to protect those she loves. Her break up with playboy Malik has left her reeling. She thought he was the one but a one night sand showed her that she deserves so much more. When Trevon hooks up with an exotic beauty he instantly wants to know everything about her. He has to work just to get a name out of her even though he can’t find her she still haunts his mind and dreams. When she shows up at a friend’s house on the arms of a friend he is crushed, she lied to him about EVERYTHING. Of course sine that unforgettable night things have changed for them both. Trevon has a child he didn’t know about and is trying to work out a relationship with his mother and Kai is now single but still wounded. Fate and tragedy step in and brings them closer than ever. Can Trevon convince Kai that he is the man for her? Can Kai really let another man into her heart just to have it broken again? The broken pieces of each of them come together to make a whole but are they able to see that? With his son now in the picture can Trevon really afford a romantic entanglement? A great book that will leave you wanting more. 

 “Do you know what you’re going to say to him?” Ricky closed up the makeup kit he used and stuffed it back into his bag.
“To who?”
He rolled his eyes. “Malik.”
I shook my head. “Cheating Bastard. He doesn’t get to go by his birth name anymore.”
Ricky chuckled.
“Honestly? I have nothing to say. We were together for too long. If he wanted to end our relationship, he should have manned up and said so. I don’t know why he thought I’d be cool with him cheating on me.”
Ricky shot me a sideways glance. “Uh, probably because you let it go on for so long?” he supplied.
I sighed. He was right. I did let it go on. And on. And on. For some stupid reason I thought he’d get tired of it all and stay with me.
Nope. Didn’t happen.
So what did I do?
Repaid the ‘favor’ and had a fling of my own. Well, it was more of a one-night-affair. And to be honest, it couldn’t be called cheating. After promising to meet me so we could discuss our relationship and work things out, Malik conveniently became ‘unavailable’ at the last moment. Fed up with his lies, I called everything off. The wedding, that had yet to be planned, and our relationship in general. I didn’t want anything else to do with him.
Since I was already dressed up and too angry to sit alone at home and get depressed, I went to a bar to celebrate my decision. While I gave off all kinds of signals that said to any man in the vicinity, ‘leave me the hell alone,’ one man managed to talk to me.  And what did I do? Gave him hell, fussed, cussed, and damn near accused him of being the one who broke my heart.
And he let me.
When my tantrum was over, he bought me a drink and we managed to have a decent conversation. He was tall, had the sexiest shade of dark brown eyes, and a smile that made it impossible to not stare at his mouth.
After a few hours of decent conversation, it was obvious we were attracted to one another. So, I took advantage of the situation and decided that a few hours spent in bed with a man I would never see again would be the perfect way to take my mind off my broken heart.
After all, Atlanta was a big town. What were the odds of crossing paths with him again?

Apparently in my world, they were one-hundred percent.
