mommy-please-help-me

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 BN.com (Paperback).

The Lines of Loyalty by Brittany Pitteard

Screenshot_2016-05-26-16-35-26There are different levels of loyalty.  You are loyal to a sporting team because you feel strongly about them good, bad or indifferent.  You are loyal to your friends because they have been there for you through thick and thin.  You are loyal to your spouse because they love you through sickness and health.  What are you supposed to do when you have to split your loyalty?  Do you stick with the person who you have been most loyal to or do you stick with the person who will make a difference in your life?

Carmen King was good at deception.  It wasn’t because she wanted to it was strictly about survival and she was going to survive at all costs.  Carmen is a beautiful teenager with the spirit of an older woman but she isn’t getting a chance to live those teenage years because of circumstances beyond her control.  How will Carmen continue to cope or will she crash and burn.

The Lines of Loyalty is a book about life struggles.  Yes there are friendships and relationships but the main point behind this book is survival.  You have friends who are going to be there for each other and new friends that are trying to be in the fold.  It is a compelling story and you will remain interested in the story line.  This is my first time reading anything from this author but it is not my last.  Great job Brittany, continued success!

The Lines of Loyalty is available for purchase through Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle.

Reporter From Hell by Edgar Alan Cole

Reporter_from_Hell_Cover_for_Kindle (1)Life.  We all live one but how it is lived is not only determined by you.  Perception of how life is lived is a strange thing, two people can see the same thing and they will perceive it differently.  Is our own perception of our life more favorable or are we our worse critics?

Isiah King is an interesting person, this he already knows.  He takes us through his life from the age of five years old but he is already an old man in spirit.  Isiah is the type of kid who loves to play with children but also LOVES to be around older people.  They are extra interesting to him and he can gain a wealth of information from them.  But the one thing that Isiah could not figure out was the reason for the way he was feeling.  Isiah is seeing and feeling things that he doesn’t understand and no one can really tell him why.  The one thing that he does know is that he has an internal struggle that no one understands but he is trying to overcome it.  Will Isiah overcome his struggles or will he succumb to the urges and desires?

Reporter From Hell is a book about a young man growing up and coming into his own.  It is written from the view of Isiah and it is his version of how his life is going.  It is graphic with the language and the situations that Isiah is going through.  The story revolves around him and his family’s lives and their struggles.  While things are interesting enough, Isiah is a child with a child’s mind until later in the story and it shows.  It is an intriguing story but the story line is kind of jumpy, sort of all over the place.  The structure needs to be tighter and the grammar needs to be double checked.  All in all it is a decent read.

Reporter From Hell is available through Amazon.com (both Kindle and paperback) and BN.com (paperback only).

The Power of The P by Syretta Walker

The Power of the PIf you are smart and pay attention, you learn early in life the value of things.  The key is knowing the worth and how to get the most bang for your buck.

Allure Stevens is a very interesting 18-year-old girl.  She is beautiful girl with no lack of friends but like some, she has secrets.  Once her secret is discovered by her father, Allure’s life is set into fast forward!  While being free to explore new adventures, some of those adventures were better left where they were.  It doesn’t take long to realize that everything that glitters ain’t gold.

The Power of The P is a book about life’s choices and how to deal with the decisions that you have made.  It shows you that actions have consequences and you have to deal with them or they will continue to be there waiting for you.  The cast of characters are interesting because of the fact that they all have the same desires but seem to lack the correct motivation to get the desires results.   This book has adult situations in it and it is not for the light-hearted, not a bad book if you can handle it.  Walker has taken everyday life situations and created a book to keep you reading with your mouth wide open.  I look forward to reading more from Walker in the future.

The Power of The P is available on Amazon.com in Kindle edition only.

Lifestyles Of A Rich Mistress by Akilam

lifestyles of a rich mistressChildren follow by example, this is something that we have found out from years of experience.  What we didn’t realize as we were living our lives is that they pick up the good along with the not so good habits.  What we have to try to figure out is how to break the not so good habits, if we even want to or if we even can.

Gwenna Winters was not the easiest person to get along with or to love for that matter but she is family so you don’t give up on them.  The thing that Gwenna doesn’t realize is that by keeping secrets they always catch up with you and when they do someone almost always gets hurt in the process.  Is this a concern for Gwenna or does she only care about her happiness and how she will get her next piece of happiness?

Chayse Winters doesn’t ask for much, just to be shown some attention and that she is loved.  Growing up she didn’t get much of that from her mother Gwenna but she did learn some things from her.  Chayse learned how to get what she wanted from people without offering much effort of giving anything back in return.  Is that a life that a young woman should strive for or should she try to do better because she lacked the proper training?

Lifestyles Of A Rich Mistress is a very interesting read.  The story gives you examples of life and how lifestyles go when you follow a pattern or history.  It is dramatic and has many times where you are talking to the characters about what you would or should do.  I love books like this, interactive novels and I loved this read.  I look forward to reading more from Akilam in the future.

The Imperfect Love by Mz. Sheri Baby

The Imperfect LoveWe live in an imperfect world, there are many problems and mistakes made on a regular basis.  The one thing that we think that we can bank on is love.  Love is SUPPOSED to be soft, fluffy, easy and perfect.  Then again that is in fairy tales!  In the real world we all know that we have to work at love to make it even not want to make you pull all of your hair out!  What to you do when you find your opposite that you are attracted to and you are fighting against that love that you so desperately deserve?  Do you fight or do you give up?

The Imperfect Love is a book about love and compromise.  When you have one person making decisions for many different people it is often hard and this book show the characters work together and against each other but it makes for good drama.  The story line is light but strong and it keeps you intrigued enough where you are wanting to stay until the end to find out what happens next.  There were minor editing errors but nothing that would take away from the book or the story line.  This is my first time reading this author but definitely not my last!  I will be on to the next novel by this author.

The Imperfect Love is available for purchase though Amazon.com (Kindle only) and BN.com (Nook Book only).
