It Can Happen To You - Phette Ogburn

The first installment in the It Can Happen To You series features the three short stories: S & M: Sexts & Messaging, The ID and Organized Karma. Come follow Sabra, Nya and LaTrease on their journeys as they cope with issues of loneliness, lust, sex, betrayal, deceit and love. - Amazon

It Can Happen To You: Volume 1 contains three short stories that will blow you away.

S&M (Sexts & Messaging) - a cautionary tale of what happens when an online friendship turns into obsession. 

THE ID - After meeting Chazz, Nya thinks she has found the love of her life until he vanishes with no trace. When she uncovers the truth of his disappearance, she realizes her life will never be the same.

ORGANIZED KARMA - Destinee and Tracy have been friends for years, but as they get older their lives take them on two different paths.

I really enjoyed reading this selection. Author Phette Ogburn does an excellent job in writing characters you can related to. After reading the first story, this author grabbed my attention from beginning to end. The only issue I had with this selection was Organized Karma, I felt that story was added as a filler to complete the book.

Phette Ogburn is definitely an author to watch out for. I will definitely recommend this book.
