UPII_IG2From the very beginning Renee’ always knew it was a dangerous game getting involved with the boy next door. Rico was living with another woman and had been Renee’s neighbor for approximately three to four years.

Renee’ never wanted to sleep with him, but it was a different story when flirtation turned into lust! What will happen once someone catches feeling? Will egos and pride get in the way of making good choices or will an exasperated sexual drive entice them to do things they both know they shouldn’t?

Author Keeta B. has done it again! Unforeseen Partition II continues with every bit the passion and lust as part one, with new, sexy short stories, erotic poetry and much more!

Steamy Trails Publishing Presents:
Life’s Memories by Author Keeta B.

The book Life’s Memories tells a story of the everyday struggles that individuals go through in life.  The book looks at a family and how each one was faced with aooooo different struggle that shaped them into being who they were as a person.  We will take a look at the Main character Christina and watch how she grows and develops from infant to adult hood and how the different events shaped her into becoming the overall well rounded individual she became.

“We are about to take a journey through the lives of several individual and their struggles of life they encountered along the way.  Some have some really good memories and historical ones they don’t mind passing down through the generations; while others have some not so good memories that they would have preferred to take to their graves.  Each person struggled with something in life and some of the things carried over to the lives of their children.  The most important thing we have to remember is no two people can wear the same exact shoes and experience the same journey those shoes has to offer.  Some people all they have to offer out of life are their memories.”

Each character has a story to tell in their own words and watching how they interact with others and the lifestyle of choice, the reader will notice how there are changes that affect the livelihood of them.  In the end the basis of the story shows how each individual character in their own way is seeking love and sometimes finding it in all the wrong places.

“People always think they know someone just by looking at them or from others have told them about someone.  The old saying goes: You can’t judge a book by its cover unless you open it up and begin to read the pages.  You never know why a person does some of the things they do, act a certain way or have the beliefs they have until you sit down and talk with them and find out the paths in which they have taken.”
