The Switch Up by Isabella Shaunte

Adriana Castilo is a thirty-year-old single woman, who believes being single is the best way to live in a world fool of liars, and cheaters. “Less drama, less problems” is her motto. Her co-worker for two years, Omar Kingston thinks she needs to change her mindset, that someone in this world was perfect for her. Since he was taken by Crystal Simmons. He thought it would be a good idea to hook her up with his little Brother Kennedy, thinking it would be a match made in heaven, soon becomes Hell for him, It’s a hook up that turns to a switch up.






I looked back at the mirror and my smile vanished. The feeling I was beginning to feel for her was wrong but felt so right-well, on my end it felt right, I wasn’t sure about her thoughts on the matter, and I couldn’t help but wonder: If I climbed in that bed, would she let me hold her in my arms until the sun came up? If I kissed her, would she kiss me back? I didn’t even want to have sex with her, even though I knew her body would feel satisfied afterward. I guess you can call it a guilty pleasure. I didn’t know if Kennedy wanted to get back with her or not. It was never my intention to come between their relationship but it all happened so fast and unexpectedly, I honestly didn’t see it coming. I don’t know if we’ll be together or go our separate ways or pretend it never happened.

I was born in Atlanta GA raised by my father and the youngest of two sisters, until my father got married now I have four sisters. No kids of my own but has two Nephews and two Nieces. When I’m not writing I’m working or traveling. I consider myself a Storyteller.
