Mommy Please Help Me Get My Baby Back by Shaquana Jackson


Living life is difficult enough but when you have factors that interfere with basic survival it makes life unbearable.Who do you turn to when you feel like you have no one to turn to?  What should you do besides running screaming tearing your hair out?  Is there any way that you can bounce back from this?

Aniya is trying to be a normal 16-year old teenager but her life is far from normal.  She is in high school and just happens to be dating Malik, the star of the football team.  That is where Aniya’s normalcy ends.  Her mother Anita is giving her problems that she doesn’t know if she can handle but the one thing she does know is that she loves her mother very much.  But will her love for her mother be enough to keep her happy?

Anita is far from a perfect mother but she does her very best and that’s all that can be asked of her.  When Anita tries to find some joy in her dismal life she soon finds out that everything that glitters ain’t gold.  Does she deserve her pot of gold or will life give her a lump of coal?

Malik is the boy everyone loves to be around.  He is good-looking, popular and a star athlete. Who wouldn’t want to be associated with him.  The only person who doesn’t agree with all of Malik’s decisions was his mother, but that is a mother for you.  How can Malik live the life he wants if he is being pulled in many different direction?  Who will survive in Malik’s future?

Mommy Please Help Me Get My Baby Back is a story about family and real life situations.  You have decisions to make and sometimes you have to suffer the consequences but the end result is you should learn from your experiences.  This is a well written story that keeps you involved in the storyline and makes you want to know what is coming next.  From the title you can tell that there is a desperate plea from one of the characters but you will be pleasantly surprised how everything turns out.  This is my first time reading this author but it won’t be my last.

Mommy Please Help Me Get My Baby Back is available for purchase through Amazon (both Kindle and paperback) and (Paperback).

Men@Play by Janie DeCoster

menplayDedication vs loyalty, is there a difference?  When you are dedicated to someone or something there is nothing you won’t do for them.  When you are loyal, you have a unwavering allegiance to someone or something.  Is there a point when your dedication should be put on hold or once you are loyal you remain loyal no matter what?  Who determines when and at what cost?

Donovan Lattimore is what the older generation would call “a piece of work.”  All through his high school career and after into adulthood he felt like he was entitled and if you didn’t do things his way Donovan was a force to be reckoned with.  It wasn’t until Donovan met a girl named Charlene Hamilton that he was starting to question his actions like never before.  What was it that this girl had that made Donovan attempt to change his way of thinking?  Could the almighty Donovan Lattimore be under the spell of the one person who no one would ever thought that he would be associated with?  Or does he have an agenda for Charlene?

Winston Taylor is the best friend of Donovan.  Some would think that Winston doesn’t have a brain of his own the way he is Donovan’s’ “yes” man.  The one thing that has Winston’s brain all twisted more than Donovan is his girlfriend Dawn.  Dawn is the one person who can break the spell that Donovan has over Winston but when they go head to head over Winston there are casualties in that war, but who will that be?

Men @ Play is a book about relationships.  Some are easy and some are not but the one thing that is consistent is that there is a constant relationship of some sort going on at all times.  The characters interact well and they keep the story flowing very easily.  The book have some twists but it is very easy to follow.  There were some grammatical errors that if you were not paying attention to the story you might get confused (like mixing up names) but all in all this is a good story.  I would suggest to the author if it can be updated and corrected on Amazon, I would do that.  I have read this author before and I know her work and this is not the norm.  It is still a book worthy of purchase.

Men @ Play is available for purchase on in Kindle form.
