#FlashFriday: Superpower – All Lives Matter Edition

State of Affairs - large


Every Queen needs a King.

Briana Gooding has a lot on her plate and being a full-time social activist leaves little time for romance. When the NFL’s most controversial quarterback approaches her, she suddenly finds time.

NFL standout Caleb Kelly is known for his exciting plays on the field and his messy personal life that leaves many women thirsty to be a part of his harem. When he decided to take a controversial stance against the National Anthem, he found a strong ally in Briana. It’s only a matter of time before the activists are viewed as the country’s most dangerous couple and harassment ensues.

Senator Jay Edwards and his wife, Sanora, are making big plans for Briana and Caleb and have no qualms being their private support. When their detractors threaten those plans, it’s time to use a deadly reminder to show who’s really in charge.

All is fair in sex, love, and power.

Superpower is the second book in the State of Affairs series. It deals with social justice, activism, political aspirations, and if true love conquers all. It is a New Adult erotic romance.

Unedited Snippet:

“This is America.” Toni stated as she struggled to regain control. “We’re all one color.”

Briana shifted her position. “Says who?”

“You can be any color, sex, or gender you want to be!” Toni added. “You can be anything now!”

“Listen Rachel Dolezal, I don’t know who told you otherwise but here’s a brief history lesson for you. Affirmative Action was created for White women. White men were taking up all of your opportunities and you couldn’t even get a foot inside the door, that’s why Affirmative Action was created. Secondly, I cannot wake up one morning and decide I want channel my inner Becky with the Good Hair and become White, or Latina, or whatever else. I am Black. I come from two Black parents. I have Jackson Five nostrils, 4c hair, and a body that was given by God and not a plastic surgeon. I am Black mixed with Black.

“Lastly, we are not one color. You have a fashion designer who criticizes us for straightening our hair despite a ruling from a federal judge that we can’t wear our natural hair in locs. When White women are loud and boisterous, they’re just passionate. When Black women exhibit the same behavior, we’re ghetto. If we’re all the same color, if All Lives Matter, why aren’t you out in the streets protesting the violence against Black men? Two officers just killed a six-year-old child because they were aiming for his father. Where was the outrage then? I most certainly didn’t see you and your brethren in the streets.

“You know why…you simply don’t care. So, please, Toni, drink some more of those White tears, cradle your White fragility like it’s a newborn, and let’s see if you feel the same way in a few years when you become the minority as the Latino population steadily rises.” Briana smiled again at the camera. “America the Beautiful.”


Superpower will be out soon. Still finalizing a release date since this book significantly bigger than the first one.
