BOOK CLUB: Somebody’s Wife

2 min read

By Robbi Renee

“Jemma had me at hello… but she was somebody’s wife.” Dr. Ezekiel Green is ready to make a fresh start in a new city after the divorce from his high school sweetheart. What was supposed to be a professional business dinner with a future colleague quickly transformed into a love at first sight encounter… or so he thought. Dr. Jemma Holiday was spirited, brilliant, beautiful, and another man’s wife.

“Doesn’t he know I’m somebody’s wife? Does he care? Shit… do I care?” Dr. Jemma Holiday had the perfect life, love, marriage, and family in the public’s eye. But behind closed doors, betrayal and mundane monotony were suffocating. A marriage of situational necessity. What was supposed to be a pleasurable evening out with her sorority sisters, abruptly transitioned to the one-night stand of her dreams… or so she thought.

What’s the worst that could happen?


Stacey grew up in St. Louis, Missouri with two incredible parents and two amazing older sisters. Being the baby of the bunch, she always had a vivid imagination and was wise beyond her years – too grown for her own good! Stacey’s love for movies, books, journaling, and all things Oprah led her to completing a journalism degree. Ignoring her childhood dream of being in entertainment, Stacey pursued a career in everything not related to reading, writing or journalism. 

She rekindled her love for reading and writing during the pandemic where her alter ego, Robbi Renee was born, penning her first novella in 2020. Robbi Renee draws upon personal experiences, adoration for Black romance, and her favorite stories of love, heartache and redemption to fuel her written work. Stacey/Robbi Renee enjoys her own Black family love story with her husband and teenage son.
