Black President: A Review

This is the first stop on a new slate of reviews I'll be posting on Nikki-Michelle's Spot. Before I ever had dreams of becoming a writer, I was a reader. That hasn't changed. I love to read. A good book can always take me away like Calgon.  Next up, Black President by BHE. I should note that this book is on Kindle Unlimited. As you know, as a reader, I'm a fan of Kindle Unlimited. If you're a reader looking to test a new author, KU is a good investment, especially in this market of....eh, that's a story for a different day. Back to Black President.

WHEW! When I tell you this book kept me up reading it long after I said I was going to bed, I ain't lying. So let's get into it. The book opens up with First Lady Raynetta Jefferson voicing her disdain for all the disrespect that had been flung at her and her husband, President Stephen Jefferson. I should make note that Stephen is the second Black President in this book as President Obama's reign had come to an end. From the moment Raynetta opens her mouth, we already know she's not here for the foolishness. While  she has some issues with her husband, she has more issues with the disrespect he's shown and believe me when I say, the disrespect is never-ending. However, I was happy when President Jefferson got the guilty party right together at the beginning of the next chapter. 

President Jefferson is slick at the mouth. He put the disrespectful party so far in their place they needed a flashlight to get out. The House Speaker even tried the President, but Mr. Jefferson (read the book to find out why I just did this) wasn't having it. The House Speaker had to learn the hard way not to come for the President either. 

In Raynetta's first chapter, we already know the President and the First Lady have some things they need to work out in their marriage as the President is a noted Lothario. We also see the tension between the First Lady and her mother-in-law. President Jefferson is cocky and arrogant and I have a feeling it's going to bite him in the rear sooner rather than later. This book is chock-full with dirty politics and an even dirtier President who can't seem to get his lust in check. It's entertaining and thrilling. And that last chapter put things in perspective for me. I didn't see  that coming and I hope the President can reign in his lust before it gets him tossed out the White House on his rump! 

I give this book five pages (think five stars). Nikki Michelle recommends this book. Please note, there will be three books in the Black President series.

Nah, sis. You're just being ig'nant!

I can tell most of you have never been to jail. I have more than once. First time I was a teen without a care in the world. Second time, I was a wife and mother of two. My youngest baby was still a newborn.Titty milk was still leaking from my boobs. And while I was in there for less than twenty-four hours the second time, that ish damn near drove me mad. To be away from my kids and not know one way or the other when I was going to be released and to be locked in with women who bragged about stabbing, beating, and hurting other people for fun? The guards didn't give two shits that I was in there for a non-violent offense. They didn't give a sh*t about me wanting to call my husband and check on my kids. They treated my black arse just like they treated the women who were in there for doing mess I will never be wild or crazy enough to do. It was then I realized that while I was willing to throw hands, I was in no way a young woman with nothing to lose anymore. Being away from my…

Almost Doesn't Count: Part 1

Hello, everyone. I know it's been a long time. While I haven't released anything in a year or so (depression is kicking my ass), I am behind the scenes creating. However, until I do release something new, I've decided to release parts of a story I wrote in 2005, long before I became a published author. I'll release a new part, on my website, every week. And it's FREE! Here's the first part:
Isis August 2005...
They say all good things come to an end, and I guess you could just add my relationship to the list. I should have known my relationship with Louis was too good to be true. I met him when I was in court one day the year before. I’d gotten a ticket that I was trying to fight because the cop sexually harassed me before he issued it to me. Then to top that off, he lied and said that I’d solicited him. The shit I had to go through just because of my job description always annoyed me.
I told Louis I didn’t have any money and he assured me that was okay as long as…

New Release: The Promised Land by Nikki-Michelle & Brenda Hampton

One question. What would you do, if you woke up one day and life as you’ve known it changed forever? For Aubrey Evans and Melody Daniels, along with their families, that day has now arrived. Their lives will never be the same, and after believing that silence is golden as it pertains to the biggest sins of America, they will be forced to confront White Supremacy head on and fight for what they once relished as FREEDOM.

Succumbing to hatred and bigotry is not an option for Malcolm Garvey. He’s an activist who has intensely studied the Promised Land; a land that was created by The Masters who are determined to take their country back. By any means necessary they plan to do it, but will the strength of black men and women, along with their efforts to unite, be enough to put an end to the gut-wrenching madness they all endure in the name of hate? No one could’ve predicated it would come to this, not even in their wildest dreams. But when reality kicks in and the truths behi…
