Something New: An Interracial Romance by Janie De Coster

something newIn the world that we live in today it seems like race determines everyones motive.  You can barely talk to anyone without race coming into the conversation, since when did race become so important?  When and how did race make decisions for the smallest of things?  Are we a better society if we let race rule our decisions or should we let fate take it’s course?

Brylane Robinson is a smart young woman with her entire future in front of her.  She has a job and she is taking classes to get her degree.  She used to believe in love until her now ex-boyfriend gave her a reason not to.  Brylane has dreams, dreams to leave the South side of Chicago and that mentality of we can’t do better because of where we are from.  She wants the American dream and she knows she can get it, on her own terms.  Will Brylane’s destiny be changed on that one fateful day that she is involved in a car accident?  Will she continue on course or will she detour and fall into that mentality that she has tried so hard to get away from?

Tobias Benton is a legacy kid.  His family has been in business and politics for as long as he can remember and he is next in line to take over the family business.  He thought that he was content with his current life until he determined that he is following a dream that was created for him NOT by him.  He does not have the same views that his family has and that is going to create waves for him.  How does he have the life that he deserves and keep his family happy at the same time?  If a decision is put in front of him, will he go along to get along or will he be the independent man that he was raised to be?

Something New is a romance novel.  From the title you can see that it is an interracial novel but the romance overrules the racial.  It is written about two people in love that just happen to be of a different race but that does not overpower the novel.  I love the way that De Coster makes this a standalone but it is clear that it could go into series.  The characters just flow with each other and you can see this playing out like it is right in front of you.  It has you asking questions of the characters and even talking back to them.  I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read, I read it in one day so you could too.

Broken Spirit by Rose Jackson-Beavers

broken spiritTo be in someone spirit there has to be major love and trust involved.  That means that you should be operating as one person, one soul.  When something is done to break that trust it is hard to recover from that.  That simple act can change the person that you are into someone who is brand new, someone who doesn’t trust anymore, someone broken.  Is there any way to recover from something like that or do you just live your life not trusting anyone?

Stephanie Whitmore is a successful woman with everything going for her.  She has a thriving non-profit, beautiful home, family and friends that love and support her and  her fiance’ Donnie that makes her smile on a regular basis.  When Stephanie finds out something about Donnie that devastates her, she is wondering if she will ever love again.  What do you do when it seems like joy as you know it is over?  Who do you turn to?

Broken Spirit is a book about faith.  It helps you to see that things aren’t always as they seem and you can survive your situation.   Beavers has shown us that her writing is movie like, it feels like you are watching a movie while you are actually reading.  Her storyline is strong and she keeps you engrossed in the saga from open to close. The story flows at a nice pace, it doesn’t seem hurried or drag along, you will possibly finish it in one sitting.  I would recommend this book to EVERYONE who loves a great read.

Broken Spirit is available on Kindle.

Lavish Loving by Zuri Day (Book 9 TheDrakes of California series)

lavish lovingLove.  One of the most powerful words used but also the one word that can make you your weakest.  Many people throw the word around without truly understanding its meaning but once they understand it seems to quit flowing so freely.  What do you do when you want to love but you feel like you are broken?  Do you make the attempt or do you just live life without risks?

London Drake is amazing in her own right.  While London is quite the spitfire when it comes to her family life she is still a young woman with dreams of continued success.  What should London do when a ghost from her past comes back to haunt her?  Is this something that she would like to revisit or should she just forget leaving the past in the past and keep moving forward with her life?

Ace Montgomery has always been a special guy but just didn’t know it.  From a young boy who some didn’t think he was heading anywhere to the successful man that he has grown into today.  Life has a funny way of changing your perspective on what you think is important and for Ace he is trying to figure out which way is the right way.  How do you continue with your current lifestyle when your life is about to be turned upside down?  Will Ace be a willing participant or will he turn the other way?

Lavish Loving is the 9th installment in the Drakes Of California series and it does not disappoint.  If you have read the previous books you know how powerful and family oriented this series is.  There is regular family drama and excitement but the one thing that is never lost is love.  Day has given us another chance to be entertained and engrossed in lives other than our own.  You feel like you are a part of the book, like you are right there in the story and that is the sign of a great writer.  If you haven’t started on this series, you need to!  I applaud Day for continuing to bring us Love and Light!

Lavish Loving is available on Amazon.com (Kindle and paperback), BN.com (Nook and paperback) and everywhere books are sold.
