They promised each other forever and then he went ghost on her.
Well, did he really?
Jennifer Winters knows exactly what Trevor Ashley has been doing since they ended their romance some years ago. After all, it’s hard to miss a guy who’s the number one hip-hop artist in the world. Everywhere she turns, someone is quoting his lyrics, talking about his videos, and gossiping about who he’s been with.
Now he has returned for reasons Jennifer is not sure she cares about.
Trevor Ashley knows behind the bling, women, and fame, he’s bored. Every IG hottie says the same thing and they all want the same thing – clout. What he does want is an old love who wants nothing to do with him.
Can Trevor convince Jennifer the past is just that? Or will she unknowingly contribute to another hit song by him?
I Forgot You Existed is a standalone erotic novella that deals with long-lost love, forgiveness, and starting over.
“I hear Ash’s back.”
Jennifer shrugged. Trevor Ashley or otherwise known as hip-hop star Ash, is the success of the small town of Palm Springs. A city world-renowned from being a Hollywood hotspot and host of the annual Coachella fest.
Families felt safe raising their children in the city. A burgeoning gay community could be as loud and proud as they want to be. It was an Instagrammer’s dream vacation. The city could add one more bragging right to its history:
It produced one of the best rappers in the world.
Jennifer paid no attention to Trevor or anything connected to him for the last six years of her life. One, she didn’t really listen to any rap music unless it was old-school, so Trevor clearly didn’t fit the bill.
Most importantly, why would she want to listen to music from a man who eviscerated her heart?
“That’s lovely,” Jennifer restocked the shelves at Fresh Espresso.
Hayley turned towards her best friend. Her face was stoic as she concentrated on putting the coffee bags just right. Jennifer always had a bit of anal retentiveness when it came to her business and it paid off. It was voted the most successful shop in the Coachella Valley.
Hearing Ash’s name clearly bothered Jennifer more than she wanted to admit. “You’re okay with him being in town?”
“Why wouldn’t I be?” Jennifer asked.
“Well, the fact you two used to date…” Hayley began.
“That was a long time ago,” Jennifer stated.
“And the fact you have straightened out the same cupboard for the past ten minutes.” Hayley folded her arms and watched as Jennifer stood back and realized her mistake. “I mean, how many times are you gonna stack the same shelf, Pooh?”
I Forgot You Existed, a short romance novella, will be out this month.
