    Summary

    AWAKENING... A story of love and desire, vengeance and violence, in a small Southern town.

    Rey is a pretty teenaged bride who marries an oafish, older man on the condition that it would be a marriage in name only until her twentieth birthday. Two nights before Rey’s birthday, her husband, goaded by her taunts about their poverty and her threats to leave him, sets fire to a competitor’s factory. He thereby brings to his doorstep the enraged owner, a handsome young Sicilian, who seeks revenge and finds, instead... Rey!

    Adapted from the Tennessee Williams’ 1956 film, condemned by the then-powerful Legion of Decency because of its trashiness, “Baby Doll” and play “27 Wagons Full of Cotton.”

    Summary

    Ben Solo has a problem. He has to have a post-Thanksgiving Family Dinner with a family that won't shut up about his potential and how he's not achieving it - especially in his love life. So lots of wine and a stupid suggestion inevitably lead the poor man to Craigslist where he might have found the answer to all of his problems.

    Rey is a broke college student with bills to pay and not enough time in the day to earn money. So, she does what any good, clever person would. She pimps herself out for money and holiday food. Not like that, you creeps, she pretends to be the girlfriend you need in order to get through the holidays. But this year may be more than she bargained for.

    When these two lonely souls collide, it leads to shenanigans and hilarity - and a little bit of sex on the side. Can they convince his family that they're in love? Or will it end in a blazing flame of tragedy and unrequited need?

    If I can actually finish a story, maybe you'll find out! :D (Don't worry, it's already mostly written)

    Summary

    Touch-starved, heartless Wall Street Exec Kylo Ren just wants a safe place to park his godson for an afternoon: desperately choosing a Toddler Time Story Hour at New York Public Library.

    What he doesn't anticipate is that an instantaneous connection has him trapped by the reader's voice; and the lengths he will go to hear it again.

    Rey reluctantly agrees to their arrangement: paid by the hour to read out loud to him.
