The Wrong Husband by BM Hardin

WRONGLOVE . . .HONOR . . . CHERISH . . .TIL DEATH DO US PART!  These words that are read during a traditional wedding ceremony are very specific, they are set up that way to give you some direction in married life.  If you know how to follow directions, marriage should be easy for you.  What happens when the directions aren’t followed?  How are you supposed to proceed in a successful marriage if no one is doing what is supposed to be done?  How do you get granted a do over or is it allowed?

Sassi is married to Eddie and has been for the past 9 years.  They met in a bar 11 years ago and they were both drawn to each others conversation.  They had two children as a result of this union.  Life should have been grand!  One of the disadvantages to being happy and doing well for yourself and your family is there is always going to be some miserable person that wants to bring you down.  The catch is they are a wolf in sheep’s clothing.  How do you get rid of this negativity in your life?  Do you fight to stay in the marriage or do you let this outside force interfere?

The Wrong Husband is an exciting book, you can tell that from the title.  Reading this book you will go through a range of emotions because the characters are just that good.  You will find yourself talking to the characters and waiting on them to respond to you.  The story line is strong and the characters flow well with each other.  You will not get lost reading BUT you won’t be able to predict what is coming next.  Very well written and it has you wanting more.  This is my first time reading a book written by Hardin but it is not my last.

The Wrong Husband is available everywhere you buy your favorite novels, Amazon.com (Kindle and paperback) and Barnes and Nobel (Paperback).

Freak Nasty by Eros (Part 1)

fn*****VERY EXPLICIT READING*****

 

Sex is beautiful.  In some cultures it appears that it is still taboo but it is a natural process between a man and a women (mostly, lol).  There are many levels to sexuality, it can range anywhere from no libido to extremely high.  There are no rules and while it would be great if you were in love that is not always the case.  At the end of the day the main purpose for having sex is to be relaxed and stress free for just a little while.

Vicky Shaw is a successful woman who runs her own entertain agency.  She has multiple clients ranging from anywhere in the sports field to beyond.  Vicky is a self-made woman so therefore she doesn’t need anyone trying to hold her back.  She is dedicated to her work and doesn’t have time for a relationship.  What happens when the possibility of a relationship is thrust upon her?  Does she run or face it head on?

Malik Shabazz is a personal trainer and a very good one.  He has the looks and physique and he has no shortage of clients.  As of late Malik has gotten into the modeling business so he is getting more and more exposure.  The one thing that he is missing is a solid relationship.  Malik feels like he doesn’t have time but is that the truth or is he stalling for another reason?  Does he want to be tied down or does he want to be a ladies man?

Freak Nasty is erotica as you can tell from the title and cover.  If you have ever read Eros work then you know which way this is going.  There is a story line to this read and from what I’m seeing there clearly is going to be a sequel.  It is a quick read for if you are looking to break up your current series or just looking for some relief.  I look forward to the next part because I want to see if my questions are going to be answered.

Freak Nasty is available on Kindle edition on Amazon.

ROSARIO is a novella that is the beginning of a series.  It is a quick read (under 100 pages) and there are questions but you want to know the answer.  It is a good read and I believe the author is going to make this a great series, I can’t wait to see what J. Kenyarta has next for us.

Something Peculiar About Austin Valentine by Carla Terrell

9781985300620_p0_v2_s550x406Differences are what makes you unique.  There are many things that cause us to be different but at the same time it is what makes us similar.  Love is an act that is obtainable by everyone and everything but sometimes things are not supposed to love one another ~ that is according to the ones who feel like they speak for everyone.  We are in times where love appears different but who says that different is not good for us?

Austin Valentine is a god-loving, god-fearing man who loves all people.  He is business partners with his friend from high school and he is engaged to Haley, the love of his life.  When Austin get stranded in an elevator with a stranger for hours, conversations lead him to rethink his life and his thinking.  How could he be living life and been blind to life at the same time?  Is it possible that he has been wrong all this time?

Simone Watson is a beautiful, single African-American woman who is an interior designer.  There is nothing in her life that she would change, life is good.  A chance meeting with a stranger along with a conversation gives Simone something to think about, but why?  Simone has everything all figured out, so why is this stranger giving her pause?

Something Peculiar About Austin Valentine is a story about love.  The issues and problems that faces these characters is their race.  This is an easy but intense read.  For as much as society doesn’t want to deal with race, it is on the fore front of many minds.  This book has a nice flow to it and the author gives us something to think about.  I love Terrell’s work and I look forward to more.

Something Peculiar About Austin Valentine is available for purchase through Amazon.com (Kindle and Paperback), Barnesandnobel.com (Paperback) and everywhere you purchase your favorite books.

The Book in Room 316 by ReShonda Tate Billingsley

The book in room 316Angel ~ a spiritual being superior to humans in power and intelligence.  Do you believe in angels on earth?  We have all said that when a loved one passes away that they are watching over us but is it possible to have a guardian angel?  We all have met someone where their actions just made us think, “Wow where did he/she come from?  They were right on time!”  Is it just good luck or do we have a higher power looking out for our well-being?

Savannah Graham is a happily married woman, or so she thought.  She has had some recent tragedies in her life that she thought she would never bounce back from, but she did.  Then the ultimate betrayal happened and she just knew life as she knew it was over.  How can she bounce back from this latest tragedy or will this be her downfall?

Ollie Moss was happily married for over 50 years to his beloved Elizabeth.  When illness took Elizabeth from Ollie he didn’t think he would survive without her.  He has his children and grandchildren but there is nothing like your wife to have by your side.  Will Ollie get through this or will he succumb to the sadness?

Anna Rodriguez is a housekeeper at the famous Markham Hotel.  She is a hard-working  single mother of three and she does everything for them within her power.  Anna has been such a help to so many others but who is around when she needs help?

The Book in Room 316 is a book about faith.  It is about having your faith tested, losing faith and trying to get it back.  The story is told from the views of the different characters trying to see if there is any way that they can be helped and help themselves.  There is a six degree of separation feel going on because they will all cross paths at some point in this book.  Reading this books makes you question the characters and yourself.  You are thinking “Could something like that happen to me?”  I love books that make you talk to the characters or ask questions of yourself.  I love Billingsley work and she doesn’t disappoint with this one.  This is a book for everyone, great job!

When The Vows Break by Janie DeCoster

when the vows breakOur society’s idea of marriage comes in many different forms nowadays.  The one thing that is constant is you BOTH have agreed to forsake all others ~ but do we really know what that phrase means?  Forsaking all others means of course being with only your spouse but in addition to that it also means putting your marriage and your spouse above everything else, except God of course.  When you start to put things in front of your marriage you lose sight of the real purpose, to love and honor them forever.  Were you being truthful when you entered into this agreement or were you being selfish?

Pastor Sidney Teal is the pastor and founder of Holy Word Holiness Church.  He has a beautiful wife, Olivia and three beautiful children and a very successful church.  They have worked hard at keeping up appearances but something has been feeling off in their marriage as of late.  Could it be that Pastor Teal is spending so much time at the church he is losing his connection with his wife or is there something else underlying?  Being a pastor should he just have the upper hand on relationships or should just being human like the rest of us come into play?

When The Vows Break is an intense novel.  I went through many emotions while reading and at one point had to stop reading to prevent from crying.  You are so drawn into the story line that you almost forget that you are reading a book, it feels more like a lifetime movie or a major motion picture.  You are so in tune with the characters and they are so relatable that you feel their turmoil.   The writing in this novel just flows and keeps you right in the mix of the story and you are almost relieved when it is over so that you can finally stop holding your breath.  I always enjoy DeCoster’s novels and this one is no different, as usual I look forward to more!  Great job!

When the Vows Break is available for purchase through Amazon.com (Kindle and paperback), Barnesandnobel.com (Paperback only) and anywhere you purchase your favorite books.

One Day You Will by Kristofer Clark (An Attorney J.B. Graybourne Novel, Volume 2)

Ond day you willWhen you say the word family, that word is supposed to be synonymous words like safety, love, loyalty, trust and togetherness.  What happens when everyone in the family doesn’t understand that is the way it is supposed to be?  What to you do to try to keep the family as “normal” families are supposed to be? Should this be something that is the responsibility of the head of the family or should this be something that is worked on together?

Since family is supposed to stick together, will the family do just that or will they crumble like the others?

One Day You Will is book number two in the J.B. Graybourne series.  This series is like riding a rollercoaster with these people.  They have you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what is going to happen next!  It is drama, drama and more drama and you just love it!  It is not messy but it makes you feel like you are peeking in your neighbor window to see what all of the fuss is about!  I enjoyed the strong story line, the characters keep you engrossed with what is going on and make you want more.  You might just catch yourself talking to the characters while reading, wishing you were right there to handle the situation for them.  I enjoy reading Clarke’s work and I look forward to the next installment in this series.
