The Dividing Line
A new love and a new life.
Drake left Chicago with little more than the clothes on his back to be with his girlfriend Lacey. Though he has no regrets, he sometimes wonders if his time spent in Paris has put his life on hold. He's overworked and underpaid at his dead-end job, and his employer sees him as expendable. His bright light at the end of the day is Lacey, but he finds himself slowly falling into the shadow of her newly-acquired fame. The city of love has found their new starlet in Lacey, but Drake is simply the man by her side.
With all good things there comes a price.
Lacey has been living the dream. She arrived in Paris with nothing but heartache and loss. Now, she's the rising star of the city;s newest opera and dating the man of her dreams. When her performance contract is extended, she must decide if her new life of glitz and glam is what's best for a future with the man she loves-or if it's just what's best for her.
Paris brought Drake and Lacey together. But when their hopes for the future begin taking them in different directions, they must a find common ground or risk a line dividing them that may prove to be insurmountable.
The Dividing Line is the sequel to the new adult multicultural romance The Space Between.

I knew nothing was going to happen between Lacey and me tonight. I did. We pretty much settled it at the park that we wouldn't be seeing each other intimately before she left. I wasn't happy about it, but I wrapped my head around it. So imagine my surprise when I got her text at around two a.m. It was three words.
I want you.
Those three words literally sent a jump into my dick. Balling the sheets in my fingers-and I had to admit, fighting back a few tears-I did what I had to do.
Lacey baby, you can't say things like that with the way I'm feeling right now. I'm trying so hard to be good, and you're killing me.
Her response to my text was instant. Oh.
Then she sent another. Sorry.
But it was the final one when my hard-on went completely soft. Goodnight.
I couldn't imagine that one word could pain a man to the point of mental breakage. But in that moment, I came pretty damn close. The next few moments following her text message were a blur. I tried. I really did. The phone had actually made it back onto its charger. The room had actually gone dark when I turned off the lights to signal the end of my night. The covers had actually made their way up to my chin as I snuggled in to doze off and forget about her. That tight, sexy body. Her perfect, round ass. Those voluptuous breasts, and the sensation of her cool metal barbell against my tongue as I drew one of her pierced nipples into my mouth . . .
I want you, too. Bad.
How and when my cell phone arrived in my hand I didn't know, but now, I was dropping it to my bed in defeat after the text I just sent my girlfriend. I was a weak man. I really was.
