Stalker by Brenda Hampton

When you hear the word stalker you immediately know that there is going to be problems. What causes a person to become a stalker? Basically it is some sort of obsession with a person. But why that particular person? Is it something they said or something they did? Were they extra nice and you took it to mean something else? Is there any way to stop a stalker or do they just stop on their own? Can you persuade the stalker to change their ways or is this something that is just going to have to play out? What do you do?

Abigal Wilson is a divorcee who is trying to get back into the dating scene, with a teenaged daughter to boot.  Her daughter, Kendall, is constantly fighting with her about every little thing. Her biggest fight is about the man she is dating, Brent. Kendall doesn’t like Brent and Abby isn’t listening because she is in love. Abby and Brent have date night one night and afterwards he tells her that they need to have a talk. The bomb he drops on her knocks her off her feet. She is resistant to accept his words and she decided to investigate what he told her. What Abigal finds out crushes her heart but she is not going to leave it at that. She will NOT be treated like this and if she is unhappy, everybody is going to be unhappy! Who if anybody will come out the victor? How will this change the lives of everybody involved?

Stalker, just by the title you can tell it is going to be drama. Whenever you read a Brenda Hampton book you know you are going to get a good story that will keep you on the hook until the last word and then some! This book has the energy that you need so that you will read until it is finished. I am reviewing the Audible version because just looking at the title I knew that this version would have me on the edge of my seat with my mouth agape! The narrator, Patricia Floyd, did not disappoint with this novel. You find yourself talking back and pausing the reading so that you can gather yourself. I loved this book and I certainly am never disappointed when it comes to Hampton. Kudos again on another great novel!

Stalker is available for purchase everywhere books are sold.

Black President: The World Will Never Be The Same by Brenda Hampton

black president1Being the President of the United States takes a lot of smarts and heart.  There are things that POTUS will undergo that regular people will never have to.  Once you get in office if you don’t show the world that you aren’t scared they will eat you alive and then you will be known as a has been.  How do you go about showing the world that you have earned your title?  Do you go along to get along or do you come out like gangbusters and take the world in your hands?

Stephen C. Jefferson is a no nonsense type of guy.  He is all about business and has no filter.  Once Stephen won the presidency he decided to get started on his agenda that he ran on and anyone who showed that they weren’t loyal was out of the picture.  If you weren’t on Team Jefferson you weren’t on any team at all.  Involved with his team was his mother and his wife, Raynetta and they weren’t exempt from being put off the team.  The one thing is for sure is when Stephen C. Jefferson puts his mind to something he is going to go ahead with it and anyone trying to stop him better beware!

Black President: The World Will Never Be The Same is a book filled with drama!  Clearly from the title you can see that we have another black president but the difference between the two you will see immediately!  The characters will keep you laughing in-between telling them what you think they should or shouldn’t do.  You are reading but it feels like you are watching them on tv and that makes for good reading.  Hampton shows you how a novel is supposed to be written and I always look forward to her next read.

If Only For One Night by Brenda Hampton and Jaylin’s Angels

If Only For One Night by Brenda Hampton is about Jaylin Jerome Rogers who is a character from Brenda Hampton’s Naughty series, or is he? He is the man that you love to hate and hate to love but one way or the other, whenever anyone mentions Jaylin’s name and you have read the series you stop in your tracks to talk about him! Hampton has created Jaylin a facebook page and his following is so strong (he has over 1700 friends) and the women on this page talk about him so strong and defend his actions that Hampton ran a contest for his fans to write a short story about if they could have only one night with Jaylin how would it go? Hampton picked the best of the entries and dubbed the winners Jaylin Angels and If Only For One Night was born!

The setting of this book is a book club meeting where they start asking Hampton questions about Jaylin and the first question is “is he real?” When Hampton begins to answer a woman steps up from the back of the room and states “yes, he is real because I have had one night with him” and that is how it all begins and let me tell you that as woman after woman after woman comes to speak about their time with Jaylin it is getting hot and steamy in that room! I will not reveal what happens at the end of the book but what I can say is that it is what you are looking for!

This books is an excellent read, hot, spicy, steamy, exciting and brain-numming all in one! I would recommend it to anyone!

If Only for One Night can be purchased on Amazon.com (paperback and Kindle), BN.com (paperback and Nook) and on the author’s website:  www.brendamhampton.com.

Slick by Brenda Hampton

What can I say about Slick by Brenda Hampton but GOOD LAWD!!!!!

Jonathan is a big time lawyer in St. Louis who is fine as all get out and can have any woman that he chooses but he is married to Dana, a beautiful woman who he loves with all of his heart. Sylvia is Dana’s best friend and she works for Jonathan as his secretary and Dana’s confidant. When Dana starts having an affair, Sylvia keeps her secret but tells her she needs to stop before she gets caught, but being who she is, Dana will do anything that she wants and chooses not to listen to Sylvia. When Jonathan starts to feel uneasy about what he thinks is going on with Dana and he confides in Sylvia, she is a good friend to both of them and listens and tries to reassure him that nothing is going on. But how can she keep Dana’s secret when Sylvia secretly has feelings for Jonathan and would love to tell him all about Dana.

I guess you could say that this book is the beginning of the Naughty series starring Jaylin Jerome Rogers because Jaylin and Jonathan are good friends and he calls on him when he needs some help.

I would highly recommend you read this book, it is typical Brenda Hampton which means that is it hot and spicy! Fast paced and a great read!

Slick can be purchased through Amazon.com (paperback and Kindle), BN.com (paperback and Nook) and anywhere books are sold.

In My Shoes by Brenda Hampton

There comes a time in our lives when we have to reflect back and see how we become the person that we are today and that is what this book is about.  Brenda Hampton has decided to take us into her personal space to see what it was like to be her and how she has become the successful woman that she is.

In My shoes takes us on the journey from Brenda’s humble beginnings where she, her mother and her two sisters moved into a nice neighborhood and that was all that was nice about it.  It was a struggle with three girls in a single parent household so many times they had to wear each others clothes and children are not so kind when they notice that the new kids are school are not only new but poor too.  Needless to say school was tough for Brenda and this caused her to get into a lot of trouble.  When Brenda wasn’t in trouble at school she was confused and not feeling loved at home because of the relationship with her mother.  When you have confusion coming at you from all angles you tend to find solace in the only relationship that you can and that generally is in the form of a boyfriend.  That brings us into Brenda’s dating stage which was very confusing to her because her household was one that did not talk about intimate things like dating and sex and things like that so this is all new to her.  From one new experience to another Brenda takes us on the ups and downs, the ins and outs of her life and how she deals with it, by writing.

I absolutely loved In My Shoes!  Brenda Hampton is one of my favorite authors and for her to take us on such an private and intimate journey of her struggles and what she went through and the thing that kept her sane on most days was her pen and paper.  When she began writing she was just releasing frustrations, but in that she had stories in her and with her vivid imagination and encouragement from her sister she has become the powerhouse that we all come to know and love today!  I went through a range of emotions while reading this book, even stopped to contact her.  I love that she communicates with her fans and is so humble.  Continued success Brenda, the sky is the limit!!!!!!!!

In My Shoes can be purchased through Amazon.com (paperback and Kindle) and BN.com (paperback and Nook).
