Losing Control by Althea Lawton-Thompson
Zuma is a high level marketing executive. Intelligent, ambitious and manipulative, she’s powered her way up the corporate ladder and into a cozy corner office. But being the only Black woman executive at Shearing Wireless has its drawbacks, and Zuma’s had to get her hands a little dirty to stay at the top. Suddenly, all of her hard work might now be in jeopardy, thanks to a company merger and a pesky intern named Iris Pena.
Iris is just trying to satisfy her internship requirement – or at least that’s what she keeps telling herself. Beautiful, young and vivacious, Iris charms Shearing Wireless in ways the stunning, yet cold, Zuma Harris could never hope. Juggling corporate espionage, a blooming love life, and issues with her increasingly handsome best friend are becoming more than she can handle. Does Iris have what it takes to go toe-to-toe with her conniving mentor? And will she be able to do it without breaking a few hearts along the way?
