Be warned… Romance is not at the heart of Damaged Girls. This series revolves around contemporary issues in families and relationships.
Steven Briggs is thirty-five, gorgeous and partially successful as an auto shop owner-wannabe. He loves women – young women to be exact. Moreover, he is not above manipulating any situation to have the women he wants.
Independent twenty year old Jillian McConnell was once lucky to be a part of his world. Since Stevie was the only man to ever shatter her rough exterior, he knows that she would always keep coming back for more. But Jillian is only good enough some of the time.
When the sensual Jessica Rodney comes of age, Stevie is enthralled. He shuns the older part-time model, for the time being. But is Jessica's liveliness enough to sustain Stevie? Or will he keep turning back to the sensible relationship of his past, since he can always make Jillian believe that she should readily be a willing participant in this triangle.
Damaged Girls is a complicated novel about the choices and outcomes, associated with the mistakes we make over time.

Stevie & Jessie
“Afternoon Mr. Briggs,” her salute is inviting, “or can I call you Stevie?” She takes notice of his masculine cravings.
“Hello Jessica. Stevie is fine.” He is in awe. Her body is youthful and firm in all the right places, as displayed by hot pink tights and a bright, white tank. Dark, corn silk hair conducts a neatly planned parade down the vixen’s slender back. Deep curls cascade and flutter from side to side, at times encasing the golden textured skin that he so badly wants to claim and worship as a treasure chest of gold; while imagining their similar shaded complexion in perfect unison.
While drawing in her mid-section, exaggerating her interest, making her budding female assets available for viewing, he drools. “You can call me Jess or Jessie.” Regardless of age, the child seems to be a pro at seducing games. Her right index finger and thumb fondle an extremely thick layer of hair. Rather than provide a partial, side silhouette, she slowly turns in the direction of the lifted arm and faces her victim head on.
“OK Jessie.” As glistening pearls spread across his spectacular face, he continues, “Happy Sweet 16!” The exchange quickly transitions from innocence to intimacy well before words are even exchanged. Basic chitter-chatter is left to others, while these two openly dally in blatant covetousness.
“Thank you Stevie.” The focal point of their afternoon moment becomes the exchange of seductive banter, settling and relying on terms that allow for overly expressed words and phrases. Their public display paves the way for what must definitely evolve from this rather brief trade, a carefully layer performance.
“You’re welcome Jessie.”
She resumes her pace.
Knowing the effects of expanding curves, her movements are slowly accentuated as she carries out the journey up the seemingly endless road. Without making it too obvious, Stevie reclines back on his porch and shades his vision with illusive sunglasses. He marvels at the unexpected afternoon visit. It’s as if she just fell onto earth to brighten his mundane existence.
Stevie lay awaiting the child’s repeat appearance because he is all too aware that she needs to travel back – completely retracing her earlier steps. His desire stimulates an unwavering attendance. It is not until the sun begins to tip toe home that the child finally reappears, with a friend. But before her charms are able to emancipate into the night, an elderly woman – nosey and far from contrite – reproaches her persistence.
“Get your hot behind home, NOW!”
Thank heavens for Ms. Lilly.
