Synopsis of my Novels - Completely Satisfied & The More Things Change

Completely Satisfied, told through the voices of the main characters, Imani Wright and Quinton Banks. is packed with humor, drama and suspense. This novel is designed to take readers for a trip. This novel keeps its audience captivated with its realism and is guaranteed to keep readers glued to their seats until they are ultimately Completely Satisfied.

Imani Wright, an elegant, savvy sistah with sweet caramel skin and a sassy mouth, spent her childhood in East New York’s projects. After years of striving and struggling, Imani ascends above it all; loss of loved ones, drug abuse and homelessness, to get everything she wants; the house of her dreams and a top-flight career but still yearns for more. All her life, Imani has waited and yearned for nothing more than the chance to meet her mother and fill the gapping wound created by her absence. Imani tries desperately to build the perfect family for her daughter but distrust and insecurities drive away the love she needs to be happy and whole. Imani’s obsession for perfection and reconnecting with her past blocks the happiness she desires to make her feel complete and may ultimately jeopardize her life.

Quinton Banks, known to friends as “Q”, instantly gained popularity amongst women with his boyish charm mixed with milk chocolate skin. Nevertheless, Quinton realized that he was not interested in Ms. Right Now but simply Ms. Right. Quinton adored the attention he got from women, which led him astray from the destiny he had designed in the fashion that only a ‘fatherless child’ could, to become a better man than the man that had abandoned him many years ago. However, the street’s calling deferred his dream and consumed him with false expectations, fast money and bountiful amounts of women. He had crossed the path of his soul mate but she was never able to capture his heart. Quinton’s life was riding on a high while his heart continued to weigh heavy, for on the inside he knew he could never be satisfied.

Together they learn that it takes more than just love to make a relationship evolve into something bigger, something solid, and something sacred. These characters teach us that perfection is not always the key for complete satisfaction. It takes sacrifice, patience and above all devotion.

Just because you change your life doesn't mean that the next generation will not suffer the repercussions of the past repeating itself.

The More Things Change... tries to define the conflict between mother and daughter who always think, 'She doesn't understand what I am going through', when actually their lives could be one in the same. The More Things Change... focuses on the life Takiyah Kensington, a bi-racial innocent young woman from Georgia and her mother Katherine, a woman who has experienced all walks of life. This novel is packed with mature content such as violence and sex in its suspense and drama filled story lines.

In The Beginning...
Katherine's life as a teen runaway shows her that the streets befriend no one. Drugs and violence took Katherine from her rebellious teenage years in New York and placed her on a crash course to maturity as she found herself pregnant and alone in Georgia. Katherine struggled to change her life for the better of herself and for her young son. However, the man she thought would help her change her life actually made her life worst with constant physical and mental abuse. When she was blessed with her second child, a daughter, Katherine desperately tried to shield her by hiding her past and guiding her with an iron-fist. Katherine never would have imagined that the restraint that was placed on her daughter, Takiyah would eventually hinder her growth as a woman and cause her to be less sure of her own decisions.

The Present...
Twenty year old Takiyah finds out that independence doesn't guarantee serenity or security. After years of living under her mother's over-protective rule, Takiyah was finally ready to live life head on with the only worries of her body developing and finding a new love since breaking up with her childhood sweetheart. Now on her own in the rough streets of New York, Takiyah must learn to be herself solely depending on the lessons learned from her mother's mistakes. When all is lost, Takiyah turn to the one person she thought she could trust until her almost took her life. After being raped and abused, Takiyah takes refuge in a new love prospect she has been trying to avoid. Even though his heart is true, he brings a storm of trouble Takiyah’s way. As Takiyah heads down this road to maturity she finds heartache and deceit while realizing that the woman she thought she knew was yet a perfect stranger.

In this compelling novel by co-authors, Danette Maroney-Davoren—author of Completely Satisfied—and Monique Maroney, a mother's undying devotion to her children can not change the fate that puts her daughter's life to following in her footsteps. These women must learn through trial and error that the more things change the more they stay the same.
