It was the way she carried herself that drawn her to Gemini’s attention. She wasn’t like the other females. Money didn’t impress her and neither did his flashy lifestyle. All Taja cared about was finally finding a place who accepted her as their own and really felt like a family to her. All the curveballs and obstacles thrown at Taja’s way allowed her to view the world in a different way that most wouldn’t understand. Her beauty captured him and her personality left him drunk each time he had the opportunity to interact with her. Taja’s energy drew Gemini closer and his love with Crystal started to fade. That was until he had received the news he had always wanted to hear; Crystal was expecting.
They say if you love two people at the same time, choose the second one. Because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn’t have fell for the second. But for Gemini that was far from the truth. He couldn’t let Crystal go because she still had his heart, yet he didn’t want anybody else to have Taja. A real man would cut off any female that threatens his relationship with his woman. Both girls belonged to him in his eyes and if that meant living a double life to keep them, that was the game he was willing to play.
Author Ashley Cruse
Ashley Cruse was born and raised in Abilene, Texas. She knew at an early age she always had a gift of writing and was blessed with the gift of imagination. This became apparent, overhearing her mother bragging about her creative writing to family members. Reading and writing was her passion which she lost interest in when her mother passed away at the age of 15. It was a dream of her mother's to become a writer and she never got the chance to fulfill that dream due to losing the battle to lung cancer at the beginning of Ashley's Sophomore year in high school. Ashley would later face obstacles in life that would lead her to picking up a pen and paper and trying her hand at writing a book in her mid-twenties to redirect the negativity that surrounded her during that phase in her life.
Cruse would go on to write Aint that a Bitch, He Never Said Sorry, and Queens and Kings. When she had finally typed up the first two books, she tried her best to research how to publish the first one she had written. She came across a self-publishing company who helped assist her with having her book published in 2011 but did little in directing her with editing and so forth. It wasn't until she signed with Kiki Swinson in 2015 that she began to learn the fundamentals of publishing a book. It would then open up a whole new world to the literary world that she had no idea even existed. She would go on to publish, The Last One Standing I and II, and He Never Said Sorry under Kiki Swinson Presents.
Ashley would later leave Kiki Swinson in 2016 where she would go on to sign with Racquel Williams later on that summer. Her books, The Last One Standing, was rereleased under Leo Sullivan Presents and sign with Racquel Williams.
