Appearances by K. Reshay

63306637_Kindle Ready Front Cover JPEG_7070994Appear ~ to be or to come into sight.  When you appear somewhere, you are able to be seen or at the very least your presence is known.  Some people make a grand appearance because they like to be seen while others just are barely noticeable.  However you appear to a person it will be a lasting impression, that’s why when you show your true self you are never forgotten.

Toni and Maya met on the first day of college.  Their first time being away from home they developed a quick bond.  To them, they were the sisters that the other never had.  As they get older and hopefully a little bit wiser, they start to discover things about each other that is not very favorable.  What should they do?  How should they go about addressing these issues and is it even worth speaking about?  Can and will the friendship survive or will they go their separate ways?

Appearances is a book about realization.  When you meet a person you are seeing what they want you to see, not the real and true them.  As time goes along, you start to get comfortable and the real them makes an appearance.  That is what is happening in this story, it is about friends who eyes aren’t totally open towards each other.  The story line flows and the book makes you take another look at the characters.  You are trying to decide if you really like that person or were you tricked.

The excitement that occurs in this freshman novel is the beginning to a very long writing career and I look forward to reading more from Reshay.  Congratulations to a very good start!

Appearances can be purchased through Amazon.com (Kindle and paperback) and BarnesandNoble.com (Paperback).

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.

Something New 2: An Interracial Romance by Janie DeCoster

SOMETHING NEW 2 BOOK COVER (1)Nowadays life is hard enough without throwing something in the mix that is totally going to shake things up.  Love is supposed to be just that, love, plain and simple.  When people put stipulations on who and how to love that is when the world becomes a difficult place to live.  What happens when you defy what people think is right and do what you feel is right?  Is it easier to just go with what everyone else wants or with what you want?

Brylane Robinson is an everyday ordinary girl.  She is kind, smart and beautiful with a heart of gold.  Anyone would be lucky to have Brylane, but she has chosen to be with  someone who no one understands.  Should she let love dictate who she should be with or should she let events of the past determine who she is with?  How can you be happy in life if you are not in charge of your own destiny?

Tobias Benton is a catch!  He is handsome, single, rich and due to inherit the family business.  All Tobias has to do is follow what his father is telling him to do but that is not working out for Tobias.  How do you tell your heart that you are not supposed to have someone when it only beats for that person?  Who or what do you follow?

Something New 2 is the follow-up to Something New which introduces us these characters and the issues they are facing being an interracial couple.  What they are dealing with are some very real issues that goes on everyday in today’s society due to race relations.  The characters are relatable and the story line strong.  It is a story that you want to see through all the way to the end.  I enjoy DeCoster’s work and look forward to reading more of her work.

Twisted Virtues: Complicated Matters by Tamir A. Shaw

BookCoverImage (1)

When speaking of virtues you think of righteousness, purity and morality.  These are things that one should try to exhibit in their daily lives but what happens when your virtues are twisted?  Should you try to correct yourself or do you just continue on with the way things are going?  What if you feel that what you are doing or how you are acting is morally correct?

Tobias and Sheyla Marchand are blessed.  They both have good paying jobs that allow them to live the kind of lifestyle that anyone else would envy.  Certain situations occur within Tobias’s career and now they are forced to make some changes that will help the family to maintain their current lifestyle.  Will these changes bring the family closer or will it push the family apart?  What can be done to make this transition easier or will this just be the Marchand family status quo?

Levi Kennett is a very successful business man.  He owns several properties among other business ventures.  Levi has been trying to find himself practically all of his life but how will Levi’s life change upon meeting a random stranger?  Is it time for Levi to start a new chapter or will he continue on the path that he is already travelling?

Twisted Virtues is a book about decisions and circumstances.  You learn about six degrees of separation because the characters lives are crossing and they aren’t even realizing it.  The way that the chapters are set up they give you total insight to the characters and you won’t get lost or confused.  They characters and their place in the book is clear.  I enjoyed reading this book by Shaw and I look forward to reading more in the future.  Twisted Virtues: Complicated Matters is available on Amazon.com in both Kindle and paperback.
