How do you start over when you never thought you’d have to?
Fatimah Briggs is tired of the games, tired of the lies.
Tired of her husband.
Malcolm has spent his entire marriage thinking only of himself and getting “a little sumthin sumthin” on the side. Plus, when he’s angry, he lashes out at the one person who’s always believed in him, even when it tore her heart to pieces. But after one confrontation too many, Fatimah decides that enough is enough. When her bruises heal, she refuses to return home, choosing instead to start a new life without Malcolm.
Enter Xiomara, Fatimah’s sexy new boss who wants so much more. That’s when Fatimah is forced to face some truths of her own, and finally take charge of the situation.
But more than a few people aren’t going to like the ‘new and improved’ Fatimah. And dealing with “a little sumthin sumthin” may prove to be more than anyone should be expected to handle.
A Little Sumthin Sumthin is a story of staring over, and finding strength when you thought you had none. It’s a tale of karma, truth, and ultimately, survival because sometimes, what goes around, really does come around.
For Fatimah, the trick will be staying alive long enough to see it happen.
“Author Imani True writes a powerful, heartfelt, gritty novel. Her story explores the realities of life, the ones no one wants to talk about – spousal abuse and lesbianism. Ms. True takes these topics by the collar and yanks them headlong through the streets for all to see. Her heroines are strong and proud. You cheer them on every step of the way. Her villain is a man you have no trouble seeing get his own back when karma finally catches up. A solid storyline and intensely written characters with intriguing subplots makes this a great read in my opinion. I will be looking for a little more sumthin, sumthin from this author!”~Lee-Ann Graff-Vinson, Author of Georgia’s Smile, Love’s Trust, Callie’s Fate, and her most recent release – Love And Liberty (now also available in print).
“’A Little Sumthin’ Sumthin’” is a seductive blend of mystery, sensuality, and drama. A well-crafted novel that invites the reader to not just peruse the first few pages, but it invites them into a world where motives and secrets are exposed in an erotic, but thrilling way.”~Gaiven Clairmont, Author of Reality, Dreams, and Nightmares.
“’ALSS’ is captivating and very well-written. Imani True did an awesome job at combining sexiness with the right amount of suspense and twists. Fatimah is definitely a bad chick, and Malcolm…let’s just say he’s definitely NOT the ladies’ man he thinks he is!” ~Queen B.G., Author of Dealt the Wrong Hand and Bridge 2 Destruction.
“’A Little Sumthin’ Sumthin’” is a very sexy story with fully developed characters in realistic situations, which makes this intriguing story a must-read. It’s what happens when high finance collides with low-life crime. It’s not so much ‘whodunit,’ but why they did it that will keep readers on the edge, and turning pages late into the night. This one is a winner!~Terry B., Author of The ‘E’ Collection: A New Definition of Erotica: Volume 1, Dancer’s Paradise: An Erotic Journey and At Midnight: Choice Fowler’s Story.
