The Perfect Sin by The Blakk Dahlia

Book Teaser: “When Jennifer Saw Darren”
During the first day of work, Kelly introduced me to almost everyone in the office. Administrative staff members, the team, managers from nearby teams, random people on the floor. However, she didn’t introduce me to him. I guess since he worked on a different floor, he wasn’t included in the new girl tour stop.

While heading home for the day, I found him in the downstairs lobby. I didn’t just see him; my eyes experienced his face. Distance sat between us, but through the crowd of people rushing to leave, I knew I wanted him. Brown skin, with a height no less than six feet, fit, low haircut, with a thin mustache leading to a short goatee. Deep dimples on each side of a spellbinding smile exposed with his laughter. He regularly checked a cell phone while listening to random jokes told by Michael and another guy. I was heavily curious to know what made him glow infectiously. If I knew, maybe one day that smile would appear just for me.

My eyes locked on him until he was about to look towards my direction. I lowered my head for a moment to hide the eye-stalking, then once I looked up, he was gone. Jolting my head from left to right, I searched for signs of his whereabouts. No luck.

The Perfect Sin is the fourth release from the Heartbreak Diaries book series. The collection of novellas dive into the stories from love and love lost due to the styles of hearts many may walk (or rush) into choosing a significant other. Rushing to Distraction (The Foolish Heart); Wrong Vengeance (The Toxic Heart); and Devastation or Destiny??? (The Settled Heart) are all stories derived from accounts of The Blakk Dahlia’s own dealings in dating and relationships.

“Although feathers may be ruffled with this story. I wanted to create a book within the series that is real from all angles. Falling for sin can cost you, but what if that sin gives you great hope to love again. And when we choose our feelings over the feelings of a stranger, how do we handle that guilt?” says, The Blakk Dahlia. This story consists of love, chaos, guilt, and realistic stories of what we all have faced going through the ebbs and flows of adulthood.

Devastation or Destiny??? Book by The Blakk DahliaThe first chapter is an introduction to the main character Tanya’s mood as she goes through last-minute preparations for her wedding day. Not the usual, Bridezilla, she’s going through the motions of pondering thoughts of how the relationship altered her dreams, and how marriage will change her life.

The third “entry” from the Heartbreak Diaries, “Devastation or Destiny???”, sets the scene of a perfect love, leading up to what is supposed to be the perfect wedding day. Tanya’s love for her man, Kenneth is unmeasurable. However, a great love comes with a cost. For Tanya, it’s the life of adventure she dreamt of.

Book Snippet from Chapter I: An Unbothered Bride-To-Be.

“Tanya! Hurry up, we’re running late!” Shauna yelled to her best friend.

“I’m coming!” She sighed with aggravation.

Tanya’s concern wasn’t being on time. Instead, she concentrated on her hair in the bathroom mirror.

Shauna suddenly appeared in the doorway with her hand rested on a perched hip. “Tanya! Are you serious!?!? Why are you styling your hair now? We’ll have time to come back and get pretty before the rehearsal.”

“I know. But I wanna be pretty now.” She responded, unbothered by her friend’s urgency. “I’ll be done in a minute.”

“With the way I’m rushing and you slowing around, you’d think I’d be the one getting married. Now COME ON GIRL! Ms. Lucy opened the shop today just for us. We can’t hold her up.”

Shauna moved closer, to hurry the process.

“I said…I’m coming.” Tanya moved away. “Chill. We’ll have enough time to get there. We’re only twenty minutes away Shauna.”

“I’ll be in the car when you’re done!” Shauna stormed away.

Tanya stayed in the mirror, relieved to be left alone. She wanted a peaceful morning before the wedding rehearsal. Determined to move on HER time, not anyone else’s.

Living in the “Heart of Dixie” was only supposed to be a pit stop. Tanya relocated from Miami, to help restructure the finance department for the company’s subsidiary. The move was a big adjustment from having a condo by the beach and a lively nightlife. However, living in the city where she attended college, along with moving closer to her close friends, Shauna and Keena, made it a little easier. An added bonus was meeting Kenneth. After that, her plans of moving out of the country fell away as she fell deeper in love.

Their romance developed on a whim. Tanya hired his company for landscaping for her new townhome. The home, which was initially an investment property while working in Birmingham. Kenneth became captivated by her beauty and drive for success. Over time, he would come back to check up on the yard, free of charge of course. Their friendship quickly turned into love. Two years later he proposed, and six months after that, the wedding day was a little over 24 hours away.


About “Devastation or Destiny???” (The Settled Heart)
Choose the love of your life, OR the life you love?
Tanya found her happy ending, but it wasn’t the one she wrote. A lover of adventure and exploration found the heart of a hard-working traditional man. Kenneth is unwilling to take on her dreams, however, he gives the greatest love with no reservations. As their wedding day approaches, she finds herself thinking of what could have been. Did I give up on what I REALLY wanted too soon?

Fearing that she’ll miss out on a chance of true love, Tanya gives in. But, the deep yearnings never end. The universe hears the inner cries of the life she wanted, as she prepares to take on a new life with Kenneth. Life eventually gives her want she truly wants but with a cost…Devastation!

Thrown into dismay, Tanya finds herself starting over. Will the devastation be worth it? Or should she have been grateful for the “once in a lifetime love”?

The Heartbreak Diaries Book Series is a gripping new collection of must-reads that will ask many questions that go unspoken in dating/relationship conversations. Previous releases, “Rushing to Distraction” and “Wrong Vengeance” taps into the foolish and toxic hearts, respectively. What’s unique about this series is that it dives into these heart types from a real and vulnerable place. Each book has a “dear diary” moment from an integral character, displaying their true intentions within the story.

Marketing Executive Benita Bellamy Kelley Authors BORN 2 BE, A Life Inspiring 31-Day Devotional That Includes Her Personal Quotes And Stories of Overcoming

The Bellamy Group’s Founder and CEO Benita Bellamy Kelley Adds Author and Radio Personality To Her Thriving Brand

Born 2 Be book by Benita Bellamy Kelley - BRASH! Magazine BlogNashville, TN – The music and entertainment industry has a hidden force that contributes to its success, evolution, and longevity. Singers, bands, actors and various talents rely on managers, publicists, marketers, promoters, and agents behind the scenes to power the engine to their success. Benita Bellamy Kelley has been one of those driving forces behind new and award-winning artists in Gospel, Christian and Jazz Music. The Tennessee native has offered her genius to dozens of top artists, ministries, and entertainers over her 20-year career span in promoting music, faith-based entertainment, literary and performing arts.

Benita is founder and CEO of The Bellamy Group marketing agency which is noted as one of the top agencies in Gospel music. She now adds author and radio personality to her thriving career and diverse brand. Benita has authored and released her first book BORN 2 BE.

BORN 2 BE is an inspiring 31-day devotional and enlightening guide to motivate you to tap into your full potential. Benita’s powerful book includes many of her own good and bad life experiences while growing up in the mountains of East Tennessee, as a single mother for 20 years, and as an entrepreneur. Each chapter has original or notable personalities’ quotes that Benita encourages readers to share on social media.

“This book is a daily devotional that is a quick and easy read, but the short chapters are very powerful,” Benita explains. “I started writing this several years ago but I had such a busy schedule serving my clients and being a single mom that I never had the time to finish it. I got married in 2017 and received so much encouragement from my husband. We prayed over it often and I began to dedicate blocks of time each week until I finished.”

BORN 2 BE is self-published by Benita and The Bellamy Group and is written to encourage men and women to #BeRESILIENT and to Endure, Rise and WIN! (2 Corinthians 4:16-18). The full-color book also features photos by Barry Bellamy (Benita’s brother), who captured beautiful picturesque scenes from home in the mountains of Tennessee to travels throughout Jamaica and the Carribean Islands.

“I wrote BORN 2 BE because we are all born with greatness in us but we have to stay focused, get up when we fall, and let no one distract us or deter us from our dreams, goals, and destiny,” says Benita. “Life can kick you pretty hard and can seem to be unbearable at times. But, I’m proof that even when your world crumbles around you, and you lose everything, trusting God and being obedient to His word will carry you through every storm or battle you experience.”

In addition, Benita has also developed a companion Spotify music playlist that she hopes readers will follow and listen to as they read the book. The official “Born 2 Be Spotify Playlist” has 31 powerful songs of inspiration and worship by Christian and Urban Inspirational artists including Jasmine Murray, Zach Williams, Johnny Diaz, Earl Bynum and The Mount Unity Choir, Sidewalk Prophets, Kirk Franklin, Commissioned, The Wardlaw Brothers, Joint Heirs, Plumb, Casting Crowns and more.

You know, the one he’d be willing to put in the work for. Not you though. I call this position, the seat filler. There’s nothing wrong with you, he just doesn’t see you as ‘the one’….
