Building long lasting friendships can be tricky, even more so for women. Finding someone you can relate to, depend on, and not feel threatened by is not easy. Some women have friendships that were built from the days of elementary school; others don’t find true friends until adulthood. Some are unable to find them at all. But when you do, that friendship is one to be treasured.
One of the best things about having true friends is knowing they will be there for you through thick and thin, no matter what. You know each other’s weaknesses, secrets, and deepest, darkest fears.
What would you do if you discovered information that could push your best friend over the edge? Would you risk destroying their happiness or their heart knowing they may never be able to recover? If you knew keeping that information to yourself would protect them from harm, would you keep that secret?
What if keeping that secret threatened to ruin your life, your future, and your health?
Ebony Campbell values her friendship with Yasmine Phillips and Kaitlyn Rodgers. After meeting in college, they’ve spent the past seven years supporting each other through relationship ups and downs and anything life could throw at them. But when a run in with Yasmine’s boyfriend shows his true colors, she is unsure of how to handle it. Yasmine’s past relationship history forces her to put up a façade of being okay, but Ebony knows she is not. One more broken heart could ruin her.
But keeping the secret could ruin Ebony.
Ebony is a smart, sexy, career-oriented black woman who wants nothing more than a summer fling with a man who challenges her mind and body. What she doesn’t expect is a blond-haired, blue-eyed bass player—who won’t take “no” for an answer—to accept the challenge.
When Ebony’s attempt at a brief fling turns into more, despite negative reactions from friends and family, she finds juggling love, family, and career are nothing compared to the ultimate betrayal she endures. Now her dreams spiral into lies and secrets that threaten her future and her best friend’s trust.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
M.J. Kane stumbled into writing. An avid reader, this 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 two pit bulls. MJ can often be found hanging out at the local library where 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.
