A Selfish Kind of Love 


                      My rating: 5 of 5 stars


                               SYNOPSIS
When Tessah Jones turned 18, she learned to put her charming ways to use and get whatever she wanted from men. At 21, she was living her best life on someone else’s dime, with someone else’s husband, and had no qualms about it! But when her sponsor wants more than she’s willing to give, she wants out and it lands her in the arms of the last person she’d ever expect or want it to — Kyree.

Kyree Warwick has a high tolerance for a lot of things but women like Tessah weren’t one of them. Their dislike for one another was no secret but when an unfortunate turn of events has him seeing her in a new light —he does the complete opposite of what his gut says and follows his heart down a path neither him nor Tessah thought possible.

As Tessah finds herself caught up in the rapture that is Kyree, she has to come to terms with who she is as the love she was never looking for is put to the test because of her selfish ways. Follow Tessah on her journey as she finds the true meaning of love.


BOOK REVIEW
Tessah, a young woman who used her feminine wiles to secure her "bag". Orphaned at a young age & bounced around from home to home has closed her heart off to love.  Kyree, a single dad and "middleman" in the drug game, could do without a woman that has her hand in someone else's pockets. On the surface, these two appear like oil and water until one traumatic event changes the way they see each other.  
The author did a great job of developing the characters, the plot, providing relevant content and an expertly structured depiction of black love and romance. The supporting cast provided a bit of drama and hilarity at times that kept the plot moving along. Romance lovers are going to enjoy the journey to love with Tessah and Kyree and the cutest three-year-old ever. Also, this reader will never look at timbs, a wig or an apron quite the same again. Get your copy here and don't forget to support the author by leaving a review no matter how short or long. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Miami bred, Bella Jay creates fiction for those who are a sucker for a good contemporary romance story but likes a little more relatability and realism to them. She also dabbles in urban romance but contemporary fiction is bae! A lover of traveling, pancakes, tea, and Netflix binges, when she isn't writing she's usually talking shit 💁🏾‍♀️. A Selfish Kind of Love is her 5th book!
