Love Is Never Painless

Truer words have never been spoken. This heart-wrenching collection of novellas brings that statement to life in three unique ways, penned by three of the generation's most prolific authors.

In Eileen M. Johnson's "How the Other Half Lives," Jamellah and Fernecia have been friends since forever. Having escaped the poverty of their youth together, they both had made their mark in society. However, men problems threaten to make them literally fall apart. Fernecia is married to a man who was raised to think he is better than everyone — even his own wife. Jamellah has always used men to get ahead but eventually everything catches up to her. The two friends must ultimately count on each other in a world of havoc and distrust.

In V. Anthony Rivers's "Love Is 2 Blame," Malcolm is devastated after a two-year relationship with Shaylisa ends. He finds it difficult to function because he cannot comprehend why she would want to end such a perfect situation. He was everything she had asked for; he treated her with respect and showered her with love. Yet love was not enough. Trying to move on to someone new will not be as easy as it used to be, but will the lovely Zahara show Malcolm what true love is all about?

In Zane's "Staring Evil in the Face," Robier has everything a man could ever wish for: a stable and rewarding career, two beautiful children, an elegant home, and the woman of his dreams. Having loved Tiphanie since college, he is determined to keep his marital vows until . . . Tiphanie is involved in a horrible car accident that changes the entire course of their lives.

From nervous breakdowns to drug addiction, Love Is Never Painless explores the deeper side of love; the side rarely explored in romance novels. Zane, Johnson, and Rivers have penned a powerful collection of novellas that will not only have readers talking but also examining their own relationships with a new perspective.

Synopsis:

In Zane's Love is Never Painless, when Tiphanie becomes addicted to painkillers after a devastating car accident, Robier must try to keep his family together against all odds. In Love Is to Blame by V. Anthony Rivers, Malcom is given walking papers by his now-ex, Shaylisa, and he is teased by his best friend, Jamal, about joining the Sad Brothas of America club. But after meeting Zahara, he starts to feel the walls of his heart coming down and ready for a new love. In How the Other Half Lives by Eileen Johnson, Fernecia has finally left behind her bleak past to become the woman she always dreamed of being. Jamella takes pride of exploiting men. But can she ever stop thinking of men as a meal ticket, and experience true love?
