About Brookelyn Mosley
Brookelyn wrote her first short story when she was a sophomore in high school. Back then she discovered how using her experience as a teen living in Brooklyn to create romantic shorts was just as exciting to her as retail shopping and going on dates. After starting her first semester of college two years later, Brookelyn’s creative writing became more of a hobby and something to do to escape the stress of midterms and finals. Now in her 30s as a freelance copywriter, penning short stories and novellas is her everything. While her experience with writing has evolved for the better, her undying love for creating fiction remains unchanged. Brookelyn's focus is on creating contemporary women's fiction with characters based in urban settings. Her stories chronicles the emotional journeys and erotic experiences of women today through her characters and the scenarios they're thrown into.
The motivation behind her brand of writing has a lot to do with what she discovered storytelling provided for her - an escape. Her goal with her work is to create characters and urban worlds that offer a great escape for fiction readers looking for a break from the daily grind of adulting and who prefer to relax with good books and short stories. When she’s not freelancing, doing yoga, or showing her husband and son lots of love, she can be found sitting at her computer desk, with her legs folded, and a cup of coffee (or a glass of wine) at arm’s reach as she types or edits her latest short or novella.

What if you found the love of your life at an age most believed was too young for you to know for sure?
Ayla Samuels and Hassani Franklin met at fourteen-years-old. They became fast friends and at a time in Ayla’s life when she needed a friend the most. The trust cultivated through their friendship influenced a decision that would alter their platonic relationship years later. That decision also becomes the catalyst behind a series of occurrences that push Ayla and Hassani to make choices out of fear instead of with hope.
Ayla Samuels has two loves - a love of math and photography. She didn’t think she had room to love anything or anyone else. Despite seeing her parents in love during her formative years, Ayla grew up viewing romantic love as a weakness. When she finds something special in her friend Hassani, she restricts the desires of her heart, believing if she gave into those feelings, she’d lose him or worse… herself.
Hassani Franklin, an academic track star, had always kept himself inundated in activities. His true loves were track and architecture, and girls of course. But when he meets Ayla Samuels, he feels something he never felt before with any other girl. And despite how hard he tries, his feelings for Ayla never subside years later. He suppresses those desires though at the insistence of someone he looks up to, believing that person is never wrong, especially in matters of the heart.
Hindsight is 20/20 and things are often clearer when we reflect on the past; a fact all too familiar to Ayla and Hassani. But will hindsight provide insight and move blocks unintentionally placed in Ayla and Hassani’s path by the people closest to them? Or will hindsight haunt a love destined but stunted, and that could have thrived if allowed to grow from the start?
Melodee Delon and Amir Jones went from being just friends to passionate lovers. But will the change from lovers to committed spouses be as much of a success?
Evolving from a nobody to a somebody overnight sent Melodee’s world spinning. Life changed for her the moment she accepted Amir’s marriage proposal in front of millions. Their whirlwind romance continues without a hitch, but not without its ups and tragic downs.
Their love blooms as husband and wife, true. But an unexpected event strains the trust in their relationship and threatens their happy ending soon after they say, “I do.”
Moving to a zip code where glitz and glamour is protocol and being strategically genuine is a priority does a great job at complicating things between them. This forces Melodee out of her element and makes her underestimate people’s true motives. With Amir by her side though, she’s willing to adjust and face her new reality in an industry where gossip mavens give rumors the same respect as facts. But what happens when the one thing that almost pulled them apart the first time, loyalty, tests their bond once again?
Can their relationship and love for each other survive the turbulence of being married in Hollywood? Or will the hedonistic illusion of Hollyweird suck them in then spit them out with no love left to salvage?
Catch up with a couple who will steal your heart and take you on an emotional roller coaster one last time in the sequel to Girl Code… Mr. & Mrs. Jones!
Rylee and Lennox really underestimated their tight bond. Everyone could see it, that special thing they shared between them, but to Ry and Lenny that "thing" was innocent because they were only friends. Besides, the one thing Rylee Daniels found to be the most attractive was success.
As a floor trader for the New York Stock Exchange, money was Rylee's motivation and took center stage in her life. Though she pushed love offstage, she often tried her hand at relationships anyway - several of them - the endings always the same and no less painful than the last. Just when she’s ready to close the curtain on love, it dawns on her - she didn’t have to look very far at all… but will she act too late?
When the Bronx Ballers’ star power forward, Lennox Walker, retired from basketball, his decision shocked everyone. To him, an early retirement from the league in his late 20s was a logical choice. No longer enticed by dollar signs, Lennox chose health over wealth and as a result, love became appealing to him more than ever before. He’s never been in a relationship, never desired to be in one and when he’s finally ready to settle down, Father Time challenges everything.
Best friends since childhood, neither Lennox nor Rylee believed their friendship had the potential to become anything near romantic. But then on Rylee’s 21st birthday, she and Lennox made a pact, a mutually beneficial deal that somehow sealed their fates.
Fast forward, 10-years later, when the two are in their 30s, that deal they made will force the inevitable evolution of their friendship. It will also cause a life altering shift in their platonic bond - a shift that will change their lives unfathomably.
“She was not the plan, nor was how we met. I was grateful she entered my life when she did, even if it was with a bang. At the time, the goal was simple, but the more I got to know Zoe, the more the goal became blurry. Unfortunately for us both, my plans were already in motion when we crossed paths and she was only to be a pawn in it all. In a short time, her position changed, though, and she became the queen I wanted to protect in my game. Zoe changed everything. Every single thing… including me.”
“He was not the plan. Even how we met was random as hell, but I’d be a fool to believe a higher power didn’t have a hand in it all. Our deal should’ve lasted only a day, a couple of hours actually, but you can’t stop what's in God's plans. Unfortunately for us both, I thought Bryant was one way, but he only ended up being a fraud. He treated me like a queen, but I was only a pawn in his greedy game. To wish I never met him would be to wish away everything that happened between us. And despite everything, I’m not sure I would change a thing… not even a little.”
Greed is a sin of desire, an inordinate want to have more than one may need. This vice deals with the obsessive pursuit of material possessions driven by the fear of scarcity. Much like pride, greed can be a gateway to other evils if the desire for excess leads to making earthly things one’s God. Can an altruist with a charitable heart shift the desires of the greedy one who has everything except for the one thing they don't believe they need at all… love?

Twelve years ago, when she and best guy friend, Amir Jones, were teenagers, Amir suggested they be more than just friends. Loving their friendship just as it was and fearing he’d continue to want more for them, she panicked and hooked him up with her best girlfriend, Sheena Rincon.
Matchmaking proved not to be Melodee’s forte. Amir and Sheena’s relationship wasn’t the best for the two years they were together and their courtship ended horribly right before their high school graduation.
It’s over a decade later and Amir’s feelings for Melodee have only gotten stronger.
He’s a major recording artist now and is traveling the world on tour with one of Hip Hop’s biggest artists, signing multi-million-dollar endorsement deals, receiving nominations for a multitude of awards, and is lusted after by many women in several area codes – local and international. But like LL, Amir needs love and the only person he wants it from is Melodee.
And here enters the obvious problem… there’s an unspoken rule in a sisterhood that states a friend should never date another friend’s ex. Especially if that ex is that friend’s first love.
Besides, Sheena might never approve of Melodee and Amir’s potential relationship anyway all because of a decision Amir pressured her into making as a teenager that’s affecting her life as an adult.
So now Melodee must decide what is more important to her, love or loyalty. And the decision won’t be an easy one to make.

"I’ll admit it; I messed up. But I was young, dumb, and full of… you know the rest. The creator was too good to me when he brought Leelah Waters into my life my senior year in high school. Innocent with an open heart, she was way too good for the person I became the moment I started college. That was 16 years ago though, and I’ve wasted my time with enough women to know they don’t give me what she gives me and I’m convinced they never will. I’m more than ready for all the stuff they say love has to offer, and I want it only with Leelah. I’m so serious about earning her back, I’m prepared to make possibly the dumbest decision of my career to be with her. But is she willing to listen to my side and accept me back after I broke her heart?"
"I’ll admit it; I messed up. I was young, dumb, and fell for the guy with the looks and the popularity who told me he loved me but showed me he didn’t. I can’t believe I made the mistake of imagining my life with him at such a young age! As if a boy like Pryce Williams would live and love the family life when his career hadn’t even taken off yet. The women who were once teenaged girls have always flocked to him. They shot their shots. But I always believed Pryce and my bond was too damn real and way too strong for him to ever slip up. But he did, and we were over just like that. And I moved on, several times and with several men, eventually needing to force myself into chastity to save me from me. I’m better now… a little. And I’m over him. Then why after all this time does it feel like I’ve been holding my breath and waiting for Pryce to return to repair the heart he broke?"
Amongst the seven vices, lust is considered the least severe because this vice deals with the sin of the flesh and not of the spirit. In fact, lust is labeled as misplaced desire for deep affection. A desire in need of redirection. Can the virtuous one who is chaste cure a lustful heart with the one thing that heart desires the most, love?

Love is Color is dedicated to sisterhood! There is a freedom that comes with supporting one another and fostering each other’s dreams. As the saying goes, “You can tell who the strong women are – They are the ones you see building one another up, instead of tearing each other down.” - Unknown
“I had it all figured out. Well, my mother did, and that was fine because she’s been that way with me since birth. My plan was simple - secure the only position available after completing my summer internship, accepting a job reserved for me. All I had to do was show up. How hard could that be, right? I’m focused enough, I’m bright enough, hell... I have the assuredness of one trillion beauty queens and a smile that would blind the sun. With men, I was just as sure. I knew the prototype of man I was born to end up with. Knew everything about him down to the social class his family needed to be in because hierarchy matters to me. And Jayce Martin? He didn’t have the clout to check off a single box on my ideal partner list. Jayce shouldn’t even hold a pencil anywhere near my list! Then why on earth is it a challenge keeping my mind off this guy… or my heart from wanting to love him?”
“My family has always been my priority. Every move I ever executed, every choice I ever made, my intentions have always been to put them in a better position. So, my plan was simple - secure a property for my mother and my younger twin siblings by landing a coveted position at one of the top law firms in the country with a focus on pocketing their sign-on bonus. I planned to intern there after graduation. This was a chance of a lifetime! People always said I was smart, but opportunities like this one bypassed guys like me often. I mean... the fact they selected me out of a pool of thousands of applicants was my life’s plot twist. But here I am, my mind sharpened, my goals clear, and the job mine if I prove that I’m worthy. Then why is it difficult to keep my head in the game and my mind off this girl named Summer McKoy?”
Believed to be the gateway through where all sins enter the mortal soul, pride wears the crown as the sin that gives rise to all other sins. If the vices were a tree, pride would be the root.
What will happen when pride, the sin of which all sins come from, falls in love with its opposite, a virtue, humility?

Mixing business with pleasure may not have been such a good idea for Lila and Manny after all. After taking their work relationship to the next level, Lila landed herself in some emotional drama. And it’s about to get even more dramatic.
Fed-up with the back and forth, Lila forces Manny to be upfront and honest about who he wants to be with. When Manny finally decides, his decision will set off a chain of events that will lead to Lila being pursued by a surprise admirer, involved with someone new, and eventually sucked into a situation she’s avoided because of her past.
And while all of that is happening, Lila’s attraction to Manny never falters.
Told through the perspective of Lila herself, No Fraternizing: Part 2 will put Manny and Lila’s fiery passion for each other to the test to see if what they have is worth maintaining after the smoke clears.
As Kuts Kings first and only female barber, Lila has to hold her own and be one of the guys to fit in. But she worries her down-to-earth personality may be what’s keeping Manny from finally making the first move.
But that’s not the only thing keeping them apart.
On Lila’s first day working at Kuts Kings, Manny quickly established a “no fraternizing” rule that prohibited any sexual relationships from happening between the barbers and Lila, including himself. Instead of this ending any attraction Lila had for Manny, those two little words only intensified her feelings for him. She also suspected the rule was more for Manny than anyone else, and she might be right.
But this doesn’t stop her from trying to get Manny to break his own rule. Her consistency will pay off but not without a bump in the road.
To her surprise, Lila discovers Manny hasn’t been completely honest with her and has been keeping a little secret. But there’s no turning back. Both Lila and Manny will have to decide if they should honor the rule or take their work relationship to another level.
