#8Sunday- Jaded- A Peek into the Mind of Yasmine Phillips

This week marks the beginning of  excerpts from the second novel in The Butterfly Memoirs, Jaded, which will be released by 5 Prince Publishing on  March 7th!

When A Heart Not Easily Broken ends, Yasmine’s world has come crashing down.  She’s no longer the carefree woman she once was.  Her story picks up two months later as she struggles to recover from the effects of her fiance’s betrayal.

Autumn landscape

A devastating breakup leaves Yasmine Phillips in shambles. Unable to trust another man with her heart, she focuses on the one thing she can control—starting her own business.

When her computer crashes, taking months of hard work with it, she must rely on computer genius Zachariah Givens to save her. A complete opposite of men from her past, she doesn’t expect the passion that ensues. But just as she finds happiness, she learns the truth about the other women in Zachariah’s life.


It has never mattered what I’ve done in my life. Being the daughter of a bi-racial marriage has always haunted me. With my fusion of graceful features I’d inherited from my white mother – the slender nose, cat-like eyes, vibrant smile – and the take-no-shit attitude of my black father, people didn’t know how to deal with me.

Guys in school wanted to date me as if I were a trophy. Girls hated the color of my eyes and the texture of my hair.

Things got worse as I got older. Why? Because I love my body and I love sex.

  1. Wow, I like it. I really like that it pushes boundaries that many people still aren’t comfortable going beyond. Yasmine, I admit, already sort of intimidates me. I’m not sure she wouldn’t judge me because I’m white. 🙂 BUT, I’m curious to find out. I hope this series inspires readers to see beyond preconceived notions and stereotypes. Nice snippet.
