Let The Lover Be by: Sheree L. Greer
Functional alcoholic Kiana Lewis is looking for a way out. Running away from the memories of her mother’s horrific death and her own dead-end existence, she decides to crash her ex-lover’s New Orleans wedding and put a stop to the whole thing. She arrives in the Big Easy to reclaim her old love, and hopefully, reclaim her own life.
Her plans are disrupted when she meets Genevieve Durand, a seductive and spiritual New Orleans native who challenges Kiana’s skewed sense of resolve and control. Spending time with Genevieve, just like drinking, offers Kiana moments of escape. But unlike the numbing effect of alcohol, the intoxicating Genevieve makes Kiana feel and think about things she’d rather not, like the death of her mother and the destructive ways she uses to cope.
On the brink of losing it all, Kiana must decide if she will reach for the next drink or if she’ll reach beyond herself to finally slay the demons driving her since childhood.

It’s been three gut-wrenching days since Bryce received that life-changing phone call in Savannah. He has avoided dealing with the situation, but now that his spring break is ending, he has no choice but to attack and face his truth as he heads back to his college apartment in Atlanta.
To Bryce, all of life’s issues are hitting him at once.

All of this brings Bryce’s internal conflict with God to an all-time high, leaving him at the point of no return—emotionally, mentally and physically.
