Author Cydney Rax completes her Reeves Sister’s Fictional Series

By The Rax Files

Have you checked out the Reeves Sisters Series?

To be honest, writing a series is very challenging. You have to remember a lot of details. You have to make sure your story line keeps flowing. You must have a beginning, a middle and a compelling ending.

The Reeves Sisters Series is the second fictional series I’ve ever written. I remember many years ago, when these five women first popped into my creative mind. The characters were loud, colorful, vibrant, and seemed oh so real to me. Even though I was working on other books, the Reeves Sisters continued to haunt me. To this day I can hear the voices of Alita, Burgundy, Coco, Dru and Elyse. I love these women and I hope you have read and connected with the story lines.

Have you checked out any of the books? I would recommend that you read them in order.

Here are the novels in order:

  1. A Sister’s Secret
  2. A Sister’s Survival
  3. A Sister’s Power

If you enjoy contemporary fiction about family, love, struggle, women, romance, marriage, secrets, and relationships, you should pick up my books. Order today. Excerpts are available via Google Books. Read a sample. Place an order for the ebook, audiobook, or large print library edition.

For the five Reeves women, nothing is more important than keeping their family bond tight and their communication flowing. But honesty isn’t so clear cut when it could blow up everything they’ve fought to build . . .

Already reeling from betrayal, middle sister Coco is fed up with lies—including her own. If she has her way, someone else’s neck needs to be on the line for a change. But soon, Coco’s in deep trouble with the law, her future hanging in the balance . . . Now the only thing that can save her is revealing one last devastating truth.

Struggling with unthinkable loss, Coco’s sister, Burgundy, finds comfort in a colleague’s arms. But her
eight-year-old daughter wants no part of him. She wants the life she enjoyed when her father was alive. As Burgundy fights to move on from the shocking tragedy of her marriage, she seeks a silver lining. And against all odds, she wants herself and all her sisters to win. In spite of secrets, lies, deception, and hurt, she will do whatever it takes to support and empower her family. Even if it means risking everything that’s important to her.

Now between revenge, grief, and forgiveness, these siblings will challenge themselves—and all they think they know about each other—in a showdown that may leave them united—or cause them to forever fall apart . . .

My Married Boyfriend is Back

Cydney Rax’s novel MY MARRIED BOYFRIEND was received with great acclaim and excitement. Readers couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to find out what was going on with wife Kiara Eason and her philandering husband Rashad. Throw in two side chicks (yes, two) and there’s tons of room for drama, tension, and all kinds of complications. Especially when bad boy Ajalon comes to town.
