About Love Lessons
Stacey Jackson has the perfect life. A senior at Howard University in Washington, DC, she is blessed with brains, beauty and popularity and a loving family; not to mention a handsome basketball player boyfriend, Patrick. But all is not what it seems, especially when it comes to her relationship with Patrick. Stacey wants nothing more than to cut Patrick out of her life completely. However, Patrick's holding a damaging secret over her head and before she knows it, more problems arise within their already troubled relationship. To make matters worse, Stacey's long-time crush, Ronnie Morgan, enters the picture.
Ronnie is the drop-dead gorgeous co-captain of the Howard University basketball team and aspiring singer. Stacey's had a thing for Ronnie since she first laid eyes on him during their freshman year. Unbeknownst to her, Ronnie has wanted to get with Stacey as well. When Patrick goes home the summer before their senior year, Stacey realizes "God definitely has a sense of humor," because Ronnie starts making his moves. In the beginning, Stacey resists Ronnie's advances, because she does have a boyfriend, but after spending an innocent evening together, she gives into her longtime desires. Once those desires are unleashed, there's no turning back and it's not just about the sex!
Despite her current relationship, Ronnie feels that Stacey is a safe bet for "no drama" but he has no idea what's really going on with Stacey and Patrick. Ronnie tries to be supportive of Stacey's decision to remain with Patrick but soon, enough's enough. When Stacey doesn't break up with Patrick after an ultimatum, Ronnie ends their relationship.
Can Stacey find the courage to end her abusive relationship or will she let her secret shame, tear her new relationship apart before it gets a chance to blossom?
Love Lessons is Ms. Grimble’s first novel which was published by Madada Publishing in 2006.
