Tyree's Love Triangle
by Charmaine Galloway

Things aren’t always what they seem and that’s certainly true for Tyree Bell, a handsome and successful businessman with a wife and child who adores him. On the outside it appears he has it all together. On the inside he’s holding onto something so immoral, if ever it’s revealed his perfect family could be forever destroyed, but only after he lost his life. How long can Tyree keep his skeletons in the closet? Will he let go of his sin and let God take care of him? Or will he carry his secrets to the grave and go insane in the process?  

Amazon 5 star book review written by Allison Smith
Reading this book definitely left me wanting more. When I first started reading Tyree was irked my last nerve with the he was acting. As I proceeding to read the book further, I got a better understanding of why he was acting the way he was; even though I didn't like. By the end of the book I understood that his actions were due him holding in a lot of pain from his childhood. I must say that this book was a page turner from beginning to end and it definitely followed up with where The Secrets They Kept left off.

Charmaine Galloway, even though you irked me with Tyree at first, I loved how you developed him towards the end for admitting that he had a problem and sought the necessary help. This book is definitely worth the read!!  KUDOS!!  5 STARS!!!

What I received from this read...
"Tyree's Love Triangle" was a interesting read and once you start reading you will hard to put down until the end. Be ready for many different emotions during the read of being angry, humorous times and even tearing up some. I liked how this author was able to give the reader a believable read and letting us know you may never know what all has gone on earlier in a person's life that can make their life a living hell. Wow, what a life Tyree had to go through. This author really gives the reader a well written script to truly understanding this character. I must say I wondered a minute about Tyree's character of being hurt, confused, having an addiction, lovers and so lost but now having read this novel I was able to understand what all had gone on in his life. This was very well presented by this author. Hoping not to have given too much away I will just say to truly understand it all you must pick up Tyree's Love Triangle" to see for yourself how well this story line is brought out to the reader. Would I recommend? YES!



Excerpt for Tyree’s Love Triangle

The house was dark, quiet, and it seemed empty, but still he maneuvered carefully, not willing to relax until he got to the bottom of things. So he continued searching for her, searching for anything and anyone that could have been the source of her hysteria.

He’d rushed to the house after receiving a call from her, a call in which she was crying hysterically. She has to be in serious danger from the way she screeched, was all he could think as he drove through stop signs and sped through yellow lights to rescue her.

With sweaty hands a rapid heartbeat, he drove as fast as he could to get to her and save her from whatever was causing her to be in such a traumatic state of mind. He hadn’t known what to expect when he arrived.

He entered the living room with caution, that’s when he saw her, sitting on the loveseat in the dark staring at the wall. Her face twisted in anguish. She’s alive, thank God!

“What’s going on?” Tyree squinted his eyes as he stared at her, watching her rock back and forth like an addict fiending for their next hit, his vision trying to adjust to the darkness.

Realizing that she was okay, his heart began to beat at a steady pace. He knew she was there alone and he could now put his guard down. But as soon as he made his presence known, she rose from her seat like her butt was on fire and Tyree’s guard immediately went back up.

“Tyree, how could you?” she spoke as if she was mentally tormented. “How could you lie to me and hurt me this way?” Anguish poured from her voice. She charged towards him with rage pumping through her veins. She was furious as she glared into his eyes.

Tyree was silent. He looked at her with his forehead creased with confusion. He was caught off guard at her rage towards him. He had thought that someone harmed her, but he saw that the commotion was all because of him.

“I loved you,” she spat with fury rumbling in her chest. “You are the only man I have ever loved,” she declared as she looked at him with venom in her eyes. “I can’t believe I gave myself to you and you took advantage of me you filthy bastard!” She shouted so hard that it sounded as if she would bust a blood vessel, so hard that it made her lose her voice. “Why me, Tyree?” Her heart thumped against her chest as she waited for him to answer.

Tyree looked at her with sorrow in his eyes.

He knew that she had been upset with him since they had their last conversation a week ago, but now he could see why she was sobbing uncontrollably over the phone. She was hurt, hurt from the pain he had caused her.

All he wanted to do was to comfort her and to tell her that he was sorry for hurting her. “Please calm down and stop crying.” He pulled her close and caressed her head against his chest. He had been a fool, a reckless and careless fool, and he prayed that she would somehow find it in her heart to forgive him. He cared for her deeply and hoped they could work things out.

Intense anger made her push away from him. As she took a step back she wiped her eyes with her sleeve and said sharply, “Calm down?” “Don’t you dare tell me to calm down! You hurt me to the core and you have the audacity to tell me to calm down!”

She stepped closer to him and continued her rant through clenched teeth as she pointed her finger in his face. “You lied to me. You used me you… You selfish, good for nothing...” She paused in mid-sentence, realizing her words were not enough to express the pain she was feeling.

She was sure that she wasn’t getting through to him with the daggers she threw at him with her words. She wanted him to hurt like she hurt. She wanted him to feel the pain that he caused her deep down in her soul. She then turned her neck, her eyes darting around the room in search of something. That’s when it hit her. Then she staggered towards the kitchen.

Tyree was filled with anxiety as he watched her search a drawer next to the stove in the kitchen. He knew what that drawer contained and his mind immediately went into shock. Then she turned her body towards him and charged at him with a butcher’s knife. He wasn’t ready for her attack.

Fear distorted his face as he looked at her, at the tears falling from her eyes, the thick, black mascara running down her cheeks. Her mind was gone. He looked back at the knife in her hand and realized that her intent was to hurt him, if not kill him.

Meet the Author Charmaine Galloway


Charmaine Galloway was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. Writing has been her passion and a positive emotional outlet since middle school. As a teen, writing in her journal allowed her to escape the negativity of her world. Around that time she also began writing her first Christian fiction novel. She finds joy in creating unique and awe-inspiring storylines for the characters in her stories. Ingenuity and imagination is a mainstay and compass in her work.

Charmaine has been a guest on many Blog Talk Radio shows and a featured author in SORMAG’s Digital, Urban Image, BlaqRayn, and Literary Lounge magazines. She is also the administrator of Writers with Style, a Toledo local author group on Facebook.

Titles by Charmaine includes: My World, Through My Eyes, a poetry book. Girlfriends Secrets, The Secrets They Kept, Tyree’s Love Triangle and Golden are Amazon Bestselling novels. Heaven’s Cry, a short story. Girl Talk and Find The Princess Within are two inspirational books for teen girls. I love Myself As I Am and Mommy’s Little Superhero, are two children’s book.

Ms. Galloway has a Bachelor of Arts in Family Life Education and an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education. Becoming a fierce advocate and supporter of troubled young women has been a goal of hers since overcoming struggles of her own as a young woman. “I believe turning a blind eye or deaf ear to our struggling youth only promotes destruction and demise. They are human. They have a voice. You’ll be surprised by what you can learn from them if you just listen.”

Being the wearer of many proverbial ‘hats’, Charmaine is the founder of Charming Gal Publications. She is the CEO and jewelry designer at Forever Divas Fashionable Jewelry, her online jewelry boutique and owner of Amazing Grace Childcare. However, the most important ‘hat’ she wears is that of Mom to her two children. Following her dreams as a writer and entrepreneur will leave a beautiful legacy for them by encouraging them to work hard to achieve their dreams because their Mom didn't quit reaching for hers.

“As a new author I think it is very important that my readers get to know me. I'm a writer with Christian values and I hope to inspire people with the stories that I pen. My characters are everyday people going through struggles and obstacles because life is not perfect.

With every story I create, there is a testimony that my characters will share about life and how they were transformed to become better people. Every story does not have a “happily ever after” ending and neither does real life.”
   Charmaine is currently working on new projects so keep a look out for her upcoming releases. Please visit www.charmainegalloway.com to check out her blogs and new blurbs.

BPM: Share with us your personal journey into publishing.  Was this a fun time in your life?
I began writing in my journal as a teen and then my journal entries lead to me writing poetry about personal events and issues in my life. I started writing my fist manuscript while I was attending college. But being a single parent and trying to finish my education, I had no time to complete it so I shoved the manuscript under my bed and that is where it stayed for over ten years. In 2012 my cousin introduced me to a guy she went to school with who was an author and a designer. We talked and he told me what I needed to know to self-publish my book. In 2013 I self-published my debut novel, Girlfriends Secrets. That was a very fun, proud and exciting time in my life.

BPM:  How did you get to be where you are in your life today? Who or what motivated you?
I have ten books, that are now available in paperback and most of them are in eBook format. I got where I am today by the grace of God and by doing my research, working really hard to get the word out about my books and a lot of sleepless nights. I love reading and learning new thinks about marketing, promotions and perfecting my craft. My two children are my motivators. I want them to know that they can do anything they set their minds to do. I also want to leave a legacy for them after I am gone.

BPM:  Who does your body of literary work speak to? Do you consider authors as role models?
My body of literary work speaks to the whole family (adults, teens and children) Yes I do consider some authors as role models they have paved the way and now it’s my time to shine and write the best stories that I can write.

BPM:  Could you tell us something about your most recent work?  Is this book available in digital forms like Nook and Kindle?
My recent work is titled Tyree’s Love Triangle which is the third and last book in The Secrets Trilogy. Tyree struggled to keep his family together after his wife found out about the secret he had been holding on to. This book is available in paperback and eBook format.

BPM:  Give us some insight into your main characters or speakers. What makes each one so special?
Tyree is the son of one of the women from the first two books in the trilogy. He has been through a lot and seen a lot in his life. Now that Tyree is grown, he is suffering from some of the demons in his past. He will have to come to his senses and let God into his word so he can save his family before he loses them.  

BPM:  What inspired you to sit down and actually start writing this book? Why now?
Tyree has an addiction that most people do not want to talk about. I wanted to write about it to inform people that the addiction is present in a lot of people’s lives. I write to shed light on things that are relevant in the world today.  The issues that most people want to stay quiet and not speak about.

BPM:  What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
I enjoyed doing the research to create my main character. I learned a lot from writing this book. This was my first time having a male as the main character and in the beginning, it was hard trying to think like a man but I got through it.

BPM:  Where do your book ideas come from?
I write reality based stories so I try to focus my stories on things that are happening in our society. God puts a story in my soul and I write it out for the world to read. I am just a messenger for God.

BPM:  Are your books plot-driven or character-driven?  Why?
My books are character driven: I let my characters take control of the stories I write.

BPM:  How does your book relate to your present situation, education, spiritual practice or journey?
This book relates to my spiritual practice because God will not put more on you then you can bear. Tyree is going through a lot in his life and he doesn’t understand why. But when he finally gives God control of the wheel He drives him to his Divine purpose of life and he is able to let go of the skeletons in his closet.

BPM:   Did you learn anything personal from writing your book? Can you share some stories about people you met while researching this book?
I learned that you do not always know what goes on in the mind of people that have an addiction. They are human just like everyone else but they are sick and they need help. I didn’t meet anyone while doing the research so I did all my research on line. I was educated but shocked about some of the information I found.

BPM:   What were your goals and intentions in this book, and how well do you feel you achieved them?
My goal was to open the eyes of others about this addiction that Tyree has. By reading my reviews on Amazon, I think I have done well in achieving that goal.

BPM:   What projects are you working on at the present?
I’m currently working on a non-fiction project informing other inspiring writers about my self-publishing journey. I’m also working on the second novel for the sequel of my novel titled Golden.
