Hunted By Exhaustion: A Guest Post By Christina Bergling, Author of The Rest Will Come

I found out about The Rest Will Come over Twitter because book bloggers were needed so I contacted Nev and told him I could review it and I also knew of other bloggers who might want to as well. So I did a post on here to get it out in the blogging community that he needed  help at Confessions Publicity, the publisher and here we are. I agreed to a guest post and a review. I have to say that the book so far is… BLOODY BRILLIANT !!!

The Rest Will Come

 

The Rest Will Come Ebook.jpg

Blurb:

Murder can be risky…and not just for the douchebags on the business end of Emma’s power saw.

Men only let Emma down. They cheat, and they lie. They send unsolicited pictures of their genitals. Ready to give up hope, Emma decides to go on one last date. Then it finally happens—she finds the thing she loves most of all.

Killing clueless jerks she finds on the internet.

Lost in a happy haze of hunting her victims, devising increasingly-clever killings, and streamlining her dismemberment process, Emma gets careless.

As her need for her murderous outlet grows, she runs an increasing risk of getting caught…or worse—falling for one of her victims.

Hunted by Exhaustion

Christina Bergling

Exhaustion is a menace, stalking me at every turn. The large, shapeless monster is everywhere. I feel it lurking in the darkness as breaking daylight drives it into shadows. I hear it as sounds start to thicken and creep into the distance, my ears detaching from the world around me. I feel it penetrating every cell in my body, packing them with increasing weight as it infects me.

It hunts me through the day. Following me from the restorative comfort of my pillow, grinning at my struggle into the morning. It laughs at the caffeine and energy drinks I guzzle to ward it off. I can hear the footfalls of it pacing around me in each banging second of the clock as I chain my fingertips to the keyboard. Each orbit around me becomes closer, tighter. Hearing it becomes feeling it.

By mid-afternoon, after it has warded off the assaults of breakfast and lunch as even the Sun becomes lazy in the sky, it strikes. I feel the impact in my forehead, a blunt and heavy blow that drips down my face. My eyelids flutter against the persuasive weight. It is inside me now, turning my own body into a traitor.

Suddenly, my arms are so heavy. I struggle to keep them lifted, willing my fingers to dance across the letters in practiced commands. My muscles appear to be in revolt. Every part of me sings a singular tune in perfect symphony: sleep.

Who has time to sleep?

I have code to write.

I have meetings to attend.

I have a house to clean, food to make.

I have kids to pick up from school.

I have little monsters to chauffeur to dance and Girl Scouts and the doctor.

I have runs to go on, workouts to complete.

I have books to write, tweets to twitter, blogs to finish.

I have movies to watch.

I have places to go and people to see.

There is no time for sleep.

I hear exhaustion release a guttural growl from within me. The sound reverberates off my bones, echoes in my empty spaces. The flesh rallies; the flesh lobbies. The body demands its restful quota be met while the mind presents a compelling list of objections, tasks, and obligations.

I find myself caught in limbo. The mind pulls me in the direction of accomplishment; the body yanks me back toward restoration. Do what I need to do or get the rest I need. Trapped in between, I satisfy neither. I shamble through my tasks like a zombie, the bags below my eyes growing darker by the day, my temper fraying up into the gray matter of my brain. I know I was supposed to remember something… many things… but I forget.

The world around me begins to unhinge. Sounds crawl farther away. My nerves recede from the surface. I feel like I am falling as the light collapses around the edges. My brain keeps sending commands down to my limbs, but they refuse to heed. Open rebellion in my bones.

dollyfreddyshower.jpg

Swimming somewhere in my own fatigue, I realize I have written about this before. Sure, I feel this way more days than not, but I have described this very state before. I realize I feel like Emma, a character of my own creation in The Rest Will Come. Art imitating life imitating art.

When I wrote The Rest Will Come, I based Emma entirely on a friend of mine. Her life, her personality, her idiosyncrasies. I described her multiple jobs, the endless hours, the bone-crushing exhaustion. Yet, while I may have never personally dated a parade of douchebags, I have fully experienced tired on my own. No imagination required.

Emma is tired on multiple fronts. There is her basic, logistical fatigue from working multiple jobs that prevent her from sleeping the recommended hours. Yet that biological weariness is paired with a psychological depletion from the unrelenting depression from her divorce, which later evolves into the soul-sucking frustration of online dating.

Every failed date wears her down. Every disappointment compounds her exhaustion. She is tired in her body, in her mind, and in her heart. Each day heaps on top of the trailing end of the last. They blur together in an ever-increasing weight. Time slows down as the task list grows longer.

I can relate.

I may never have worked multiple jobs. I may never (thankfully) have online dated. Yet I think fatigue is a universal part of the human condition. We can all relate to how it feels to be tired, overwhelmed, frustrated, inadequate. The specific circumstances vary, but the ultimate effect is consistent.

Even now, my body is screaming for sleep while my mind insists I have a guest blog to finish along with about a million other tasks. No rest for the wicked.

Review

*** I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. ***

When I read about this in my inbox of my email from the author, I knew that I have to do this as a read and review.  The whole, myth, man, legend part just kind of pulled me in.  I mean, that just made me chuckle and want to know more, and then I read the synopsis and I was like ‘oh god this is gonna be a heart wringer’ and it was. I experienced pretty much all of the emotions that can ever be experienced with this book. This was such a beautiful piece of writing and Scott showed how two characters can get through anything.

This is like the more modern and suspense version of a Nicholas Sparks novel. So lovely and moving, Everest makes your heart smile and also makes you want to find that lasting love yourself because afterall who doesn’t want that?

 

 

EXCERPT

Singer

 

Slipping off my shoes, I dim the lights on the wall panel. I take my clothes off and hang them on a hook near the door before returning to the tub.

The tub, warm and inviting as I step in, eases my aching feet from my high heels and the tension in my shoulders. I pour some of the bubble suds and giggle. That was so cute and showed me a whole new side to Ethan—the at-home Texan who relates to his roots—instead of the strong, quieter, broodier man I see sometimes.

While the suds foam and the tub fills, I look out the window. The sky is clear up here. The buildings are far enough apart to avoid spying on neighbors. It’s like floating in heaven.

I hear his knock on the door, so I call, “Come in,” while making sure the bubbles cover all the important parts.

Ethan walks in with two glasses of champagne in one hand and the bottle in the other.

“You came prepared,” I note, leaning back on one side of the tub.

“I thought I might join you.” He waggles his eyebrows.

I giggle and reach for a glass. “Come on in,” I reply and wonder if he will really take me up on my dare.

He sets the bottle and his glass down on the side of the tub. His tie was removed before he came in and I notice his shoes are long gone, along with his jacket. When he starts on the buttons of his shirt, I sit up, scooping suds over me. “Wait, for real?”

“Yep. I think that tub’s big enough for the two of us.”

“But you said you don’t take baths.”

“I also said I’ve never used this one. Seems like an opportune time.”

“But I’m naked,” I say, worried about everything—his body naked next to mine, not shaving my legs before I went out tonight. My mind flickers through my flaws. Ugh. No. Just no. Not like that. That stuff should be shared in the dark of a bedroom under the influence of alcohol and desperate sex. We’re too sober for this. I’m too sober for this. What does he possibly see in me when he has women like Nicolina waiting?

He’s more than I’ve imagined, and in some senses, it scares me. He’s the sort of man women like Nicolina land. For once though, it was as if she saw me as competition. The feeling is exhilarating.

“Like I said, seems like an opportune time.”

His shirt is dropped, his undershirt following quickly behind. Good God Almighty. What does a guy who looks like that see in me? “I see you like to work out.” I clear my throat and want to bonk my head on the side of the tub for saying it out loud.

Chuckling, he says, “I have a gym down the hall. It’s how I relieve stress.”

“I thought that’s what sex was for.” I gasp and cover my mouth, wishing I could keep my crazy thoughts in my head where they belong instead of on my tongue. His eyes are heavy, a smirky smirk restraining a laugh. “God, you cannot let me talk when I’m nervous.”

“If this is what happens when you’re nervous, I’ll make you nervous more often.” His pants come down and my curiosity is answered. Tonight he’s in boxers. When he catches my eyes on his package, I’m thankful I’m wearing waterproof mascara because I immediately go underwater. Screw my makeup. It’s really the only way to keep my mouth in check at this point. I count to five and then pop back up. With my hands covering my boobs, I ask, “You’re really coming in?”

“Yes, scoot over.”

Good God Almighty.

PROLOGUE

 

Ethan Everest

 

Every female here has eyed me up and down, even the ones with boyfriends. They don’t even try to hide it. They want me to see. They want me to know I can have them if I want them.

Except her. Blue dress. Red lips. Hair the color of a golden sunset in winter.

Several girls made themselves more than available. I was offered a fast fuck in the bathroom within fifteen minutes of arriving. Fantasies may be taking over, but there’s only one woman who catches my eyes—the demure beauty sitting on the couch.

I want to stare at her.

She’ll see me though.

I want to sit next to her.

There are no more spots on the small futon.

I want to talk to her.

What do I say when she makes all the blood rush from my brain and shoot straight to my dick? Damn, I want her.

She’s given me no reason to think of her naked beneath me. No indication that I should have dirty thoughts about those delectable lips. Absolutely no sign that I could have the pleasure of stroking her bare back while I take her from behind.

Fuck. Me.

While images of her cloud my thoughts, I’m not sure I have a shot in hell of even taking up a minute of her time, much less a night. Nope, not one clue if I have a chance with this beauty.

I’ll take the risk, something I’m adept at doing. More often than not I win in the end. She won’t be an easy target, but nothing worth having ever is. I’m determined to find out if her tongue is as seductive as her eyes.

Although she brings out my instinctive side, this is not about sex and passing time. It’s about spending time with someone who challenges my mind while turning on my body.

Nudging the guy who lives here, I signal across the room and ask, “What’s her name?”

“Who?” He follows my gaze. “The hottie on the couch?”

Heart-shaped face, flawless skin, ample tits, hourglass shape at her waist. She’s not built like a girl who doesn’t eat. She’s shaped like a woman I want to meet. “Yeah.”

“Dariya Rostavik. She’s fucking hot.” He pats my shoulder. “And single. If my girlfriend wasn’t here, I’d be all over that.”

“Cuz you’re an asshole.” Her name, Dariya, rolls around my mouth, spikey instead of rolling off the tongue naturally. The name doesn’t fit her.

“Pretty much.” He laughs. “You gonna hit it, Everest?”

“I don’t know.” I feign interest to him, lying to get his eyes off her. “Fuck, they scored again.” My diversion works, and his attention is back on the big screen.

The truth is, I don’t know if I’m going to hookup with her. I’ve caught her looking at me when she thinks I don’t notice. But is she looking at me the way I’m looking at her?

Was I busted moving closer when she was talking to her friend? Did she see me eavesdropping to hear her voice? Did she notice when I joined a conversation behind her to be closer? Or that I stepped out of the way of the fridge when she wanted a bottle of water?

I never get shot down by women. I’ve lived on easy street when it comes to my looks and, from what I’m told, my personality, attracting the most attractive. Something tells me I might be rejected by her.

She’s not like the other girls here. Nothing about her fits in this environment—a party with a bunch of guys getting drunk while watching sports and yelling at the TV and girls dragged here by their boyfriends or convinced by their friends to stop by.

She’s an innocent among sycophants. Everyone wants something from me, except her. Sexy and smart—speaks right to my heart.

I catch her eyes on me again. This time I stare back until she looks away with a pretty pink coloring her cheeks.

This game with her is much more interesting than the one on TV. I follow her with my eyes as she gets up and joins a group by the window. She seems to know the other girl, but not so much the two guys.

Good, I inwardly growl.

Keith hits me in the chest. “Who do you have your eyes on?”

“The woman by the window.”

My best friend shakes his head. “No. Check out eleven o’clock. She’s a model from Romania. Hot as fuck.”

“Not interested. I want more than a fuck.”

“I’m sorry. Have we met?” His sarcasm is as annoying as he’s been lately at the office.

“I’m for real.”

“So am I.”

I exhale and shoot him a glare. “I really am. I can fuck anyone. I want to spend time with someone who interests me.”

“You’re working too much. You’re so caught up in your head lately you’re missing what life is really about.”

Crossing my arms over my chest, I indulge him. “And what is life really about?”

“Doing everything in your power to get it while the gettin’s good.”

“Are we talking about business or women?”

“Both.”

The model is hot, but I feel like I’ve been there done that. I don’t care what he wants. He can have shallow, meaningless relationships. They’re more hassle than they’re worth.

Glancing toward the woman outside, an ease comes over me, releasing some of the pent-up pressure that’s been expanding lately. “You go for the model. I’ll go for Dariya.”

“Dariya?” I’m knocked on the arm, and he points toward the couch. “That’s Dariya, man.”

“The model?”

“Yeah,” he says, laughing.

Thank fuck I didn’t go outside and call the beauty by the wrong name. “I’ll be back.” I grab two cans and head toward the window. I stop briefly by the group she was talking to prior, but they’re buried deep into a conversation about American consumerism. I’m not interested in their philosophical views on finances. The only thing I’m interested in is the pretty woman sitting alone outside. The woman excuses herself and I ask, “Hey, you guys know her name?”

They look outside. “Singer.”

“She’s a singer?”

“No,” he says, chuckling. “Her name is Singer. Singer Davis. She came here with her friend, Melanie, who just left.”

I don’t hear most of what he says because I’m stuck on the woman with the red lips. Singer. Singer Davis. “Thanks.”

Singer’s been sitting on that fire escape by herself long enough to not feel like I’m invading her space, like she’s taken over my thoughts. I seize the moment and climb out.

This is where our story begins . . .

I mean, damn. Damn.  There is so much going on in the book that it just pulls you right in. It has a lot of depth and I feel like many readers would love that about it. I feel like this is the best book I have read of hers so far and I haven’t even finished it yet. I feel so much more attached to these characters and this book than Solace or their characters. 

Anyway… I hope all of you enjoyed my post! Until next time. ❤

I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the
man who had always been my everything needed me.
There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had
finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend.
But was there really a choice not to go?
I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent, my boyfriend was working on
joining me in Binghamton, and my favorite pizza place was only miles away.
Life was good.
Until I met my neighbor.
It’s been three years since I’d seen Aaron Walters, and my God is he all kinds of
sexy gorgeous. Figures. He was supposed to be my forever, the man I grew old
with, but he had different plans. How can a man who ripped my heart apart still
trip me up? How can he make me still want him now more than ever?
I’m tempted, I’m drawn toward him, I’m completely and utterly unaware that
I’m dating his biological brother.
Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?

As soon as I received The Other Brother on my kindle I was so excited I did a little happy dance in my bedroom.  I started reading it as soon as possible and was sucked into it right away. This story is very touching and heartwarming. The characters are very real and you connect with them right away, especially Aaron. Out of all of the characters I would have to say that he is my favorite. With all that went on and what he went through, I felt like if he was a person in front of me I would have hugged him. With everything I just wanted him to be happy and to be cared for.

All the characters show how strong they are and show what it’s like when things get tough in different types of situations. There were moments where I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster. Where I had cried just as hard as the characters, I just wanted to comfort them.  Then there were moments where I was laughing so hard that my stomach hurt.

Racer and Tucker were absolutely hilarious with Aaron. They were also funny when they were around their significant other too and with Amelia around as well. Those moments were really great. The moments between Amelia and Aaron were mixed with the good and the bad, but when it was good it was special. Precious even.  Amelia’s father was such a great character too. I loved him! I loved this book and it will be one of my favorite books for a long time because it definitely pulls on your heartstrings. If you don’t read this you are missing out on so many things.

Why? Why does he have to magically appear in my life? Moving back to
Binghamton, I thought about the possibility of maybe running into him, but I
thought it unlikely, something that would never really happen.
Boy, was I wrong.
What a sick joke life is playing on me.
Aaron Walters, the boy who broke me into pieces is my neighbor.
I can’t fathom the impact I feel already.
Seeing him in hip-hugging jeans and a tight, plain shirt did a number on me. It
kept me up all night as memories of what we used to have flooded my mind.
His voice.
His stature.
The way he used to kiss my neck.
The way I felt so protected in his arms.
Too bad his arms couldn’t protect me from his devastating, heart-breaking self.
And hell, he looked good. Too good.
He’s always been tall with handsome features and a chiseled jaw, but now he’s
bulked up to the point that I could see his abs flexing under his shirt, the same
shirt that stretched over his biceps.
But it wasn’t his muscles or handsome features that once again made my heart
ache, it was those eyes. So bright, so blue, so kind, but still so sad. It reminded
me of the first day I met him, of the day he stole my heart from every other
man on the market.
Broken, unsure, yet yearning for love. It was all there, and like experiencing a
moment of déjà vu, I was transported back into a time when I felt invisible, like
I could conquer anything with him at my side.
Once again, I was wrong.

About the Author:

Meghan

 

Born in New York and raised in Southern California, Meghan has grown into a
sassy, peanut butter eating, blonde haired swearing, animal hoarding lady. She
is known to bust out and dance if “It’s Raining Men” starts beating through the
air and heaven forbid you get a margarita in her, protect your legs because they
may be humped.
Once she started commuting for an hour and twenty minutes every day to work
for three years, she began to have conversations play in her head, real life, deep
male voices and dainty lady coos kind of conversations. Perturbed and
confused, she decided to either see a therapist about the hot and steamy voices
running through her head or start writing them down. She decided to go with
the cheaper option and started writing… enter her first novel, Caught Looking.
Now you can find the spicy, most definitely on the border of lunacy, kind of
crazy lady residing in Colorado with the love of her life and her five, furry four
legged children, hiking a trail or hiding behind shelves at grocery stores,
wondering what kind of lube the nervous stranger will bring home to his wife.
Oh and she loves a good boob squeeze!

THE OTHER BROTHER

NA Romantic Comedy

Model: David Harris

Blurb:

I got the call. The dreaded call every child fears. My dad wasn’t well, and the man who had always been my everything needed me.

 

There was only one thing to do; pack up and head back to my hometown. I had finally made my dream life in the city with the great job and loving boyfriend. But was there really a choice not to go?

 

I found a wonderful job, a quaint house to rent, my boyfriend was working on joining me in Binghamton, and my favorite pizza place was only miles away. Life was good.

 

Until I met my neighbor.

 

It’s been three years since I’d seen Aaron Walters, and my God is he all kinds of sexy gorgeous. Figures. He was supposed to be my forever, the man I grew old with, but he had different plans. How can a man who ripped my heart apart still trip me up? How can he make me still want him now more than ever?

I’m tempted, I’m drawn toward him, I’m completely and utterly unaware that I’m dating his biological brother.

 

 

Now two men own my heart. The question is, which brother will I choose?

LIAR RELEASE BOOST PT.2: STEPHANIE ST. KLAIRE

Alright, so I wanted to make you guys anticipate the 2nd part of the release boost. Not going to lie, this was all a part of my plan to make you guys want to read this book even more. I asked the author if it was okay if I could split up the release boost and she gave the thumbs up! You can’t hate me if I bring you good books with teasers…

So here is the beautiful cover again because I can’t get enough!

 

Liar cover

A Stand-Alone Novella

Imperfect Love Series

By, Stephanie St. Klaire

Release Date: October 17, 2017

 

GENRE: Romantic Comedy

 

liar 5 star

 

BLURB:

Fake it until you make it. That was the mantra Cori Dash chanted as she chased a big city dream. The more you tell people you’re on top of the world, the more they believe it – just like they believed the embellished image she sold them with her knock off designer facade. It wasn’t lying if the truth stood somewhere in the middle – and she didn’t get caught.

 

Dominic Blackthorne owned half of that big city…and a reputation. Rather than dispel rumors or show the world the real Nick, he let his own fake image run free. Until Cori Dash – the only person who told him exactly how it was, even if it stung.

 

When Cori is faced with her ex-fiance, now engaged to her ex-best friend, it’s game on. In her boldest move yet, she concocts her biggest lie to date by introducing the first handsome stranger that walks by as her new fiancé. Happy to play the part, Nick is already planning the fake wedding of her dreams.

 

You know what they say about lying – the truth always comes out – and it hurts. Especially when Cori finds out she isn’t the biggest Liar in this game, and she’s been out played.

 

Liar bra and panties

LIAR

Excerpt 3 – Humor (drag queen)

Cori sat in a chair, staring at her own reflection, watching the transformation as James applied her make-up. He was as good at make up as he was acting, which made for a good back-up plan for him career wise and for her as a friend in desperate need of a spruced-up look. Trying to stay still, she couldn’t help but jump when a deep boisterous hello boomed, echoing throughout the room. Expecting a large man to round the corner, she was surprised to see it was a woman.

A tall, slender woman, in a white sequin gown, a feather boa, and platinum blonde hair that had to be three stories high, appeared in the reflection of the mirror. Her sashay and whip of her boa as she walked was full of confidence and poise as she headed right for Cori.

“Honey, how are you?” she asked James, leaning in to kiss each cheek before turning to Cori. “Darling, you must be Miss Cori. Aren’t you a cute little thing. Like a little pixie or somethin’. You just make me want to sprinkle glitter or somethin’”

Cori was fixated on the tower of a woman in front of her. She was sparkle head to toe and Cori was mesmerized by her poise, beauty, and rockin’ body in that form fitting gown. Her voice was deep and sultry, the bobbing adams apple made it clear why.

“Cori, this is my dear friend, now your dear friend, Devina Devine – star of the off, off Broadway production of Miss. Thang – The life story of Rupaul, Supermodel.  She is here to do something with that hair of yours.” James said, handing a brush to Devina.

“You’re…gorgeous!” was all Cori could get out, earning her a laugh from James and Devina.

“Call me Miss D, honey. You should see me without my face on, not so gorgeous…but I’m still pretty,” she teased. “I understand you have yourself a suga-daddy we need to fancy you up for.”

“No. Oh, my God, no. It’s not like that.” Panic set in. The last thing she wanted was for anyone to think she was using Nick for money when that was the furthest thing from the truth. She had no clue who he was when she grabbed him in the park and pulled him into her scheme.

“Calm down, baby. JJ here,” Devina nodded to James, “filled me in. I got the deets, it’s allll good. But if he has money, honey…it may behoove you to make him your suga somethin’.”

“I think it may behoove her to get a little somethin’ else from him that will make her scream daddy. He’s fine, girl.” Unashamed, James laid it out there. “Someone’s a little to uptight these days, and I think she needs a little woohoo in the yahoo! It’s been a looong dry spell for this one.”

Cori’s jaw dropped, mostly embarrassed by what her friend had just said. “I can’t believe you just said that, James. It hasn’t been that long!”

“Okay. Is the same President still in the White House since…last time?” Devina asked.

“Well…no.”

“Has there been more than one new iPhone model since…you know…then?” James asked.

“There’s been…two,” Cori said under her breath.

“Was the sweet baby Jesus…”

“Okay! Okay…I get it. It’s been a while. Can we just start with dinner, though, and I don’t know…getting to know each other first? I already need a drink, and dinner isn’t for two more hours,” Cori said, half-cocked, mostly because they were right, and because she was in absolute agreement that Nick would be a nice way to break her celibacy pact with herself. Too bad it wasn’t an option and double A batteries would have to do…for now.

“Look. This was all just a big ruse. One that was supposed to last ten minutes, and that’s it. Now, I’m going to dinner with my fake fiancé to get to know him better and plan the rest of a really childish scheme that honestly serves no purpose other than to pull off…a childish scheme. This is beneath me, definitely beneath him, and I assume beneath the two of you. I appreciate your help. I need it if I’m going to make sense in that dress over there, but let’s talk about something other than getting laid because I’m about to lose my ever-living shit over here.” The two nodding heads with sympathetic expressions suggested that perhaps they understood how stressed she really was. She got through to them in her mini breakdown; now she just had to get back through dinner and she could breathe again.

“I saw the dress hanging over there,” Miss. D said with her arms crossed, suddenly serious, studying Cori. “I know exactly what we need to do to get his motor hummin’, honey.”

“I’m doing the red lips, D,” James added, “If that doesn’t get him hummin’, then you and I have a better chance with him than this one does.”

And, they were back to getting her laid on the first date – classy – but she couldn’t help but laugh right along with them.

Not even an hour had past, and they were swatting her behind to a changing room to get into her dress. When she came out, Devina held out her hands, displaying a gorgeous pair of strappy high heels that wrapped up the ankle.

“Size seven, doll?” Devina asked.

“Uh, yeah. Good guess.”

“Here, these are from wardrobe. They were made for that dress,” Devina insisted, trying to give her the shoes.

“Oh, I can’t take those. The pair I’m wearing will work just fine, but thank you.” Cori looked at her shoes, extending a foot to get a good look at the black pair of heels she had on.

“No,” Devina said. “You leave on those shoes and the dress dies, honey. It isn’t fair to the dress…you can’t. I won’t let you. This isn’t a meeting in the boardroom. Those things on your feet say, let’s talk business. These beauties,” she said, holding up the pair of shoes in her hand, “these say…let’s get down to business, baby.”
