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…

Black Film Review: Only 4 One Night

So last night/early this morning, I had the unfortunate chance to watch the movie Only 4 One Night, starring Brian White and Karrueche Tran. It was over an hour of my life that I can't get back. To make matters worse, I was in the kitchen pouring myself some libations when the opening credits were rolling so I didn't get to see that child molester, Chris Stokes, had directed this movie. I didn't find that out until after the fact. The premise goes a little something like this: Brian and Karrueche are happily married, the perfect couple. Karrueche's sister suffers a great loss, ends up in their guest room. Karrueche has to leave to go support her and Brian's son. The sister is left with the husband...and you know where this is going. But listen, the movie was basically a rip off of all the other movies about crazy women becoming obsessed with men after sex or just becoming plane ol' obsessed. If you've seen Obsessed, Single White Female, Hand that Rocks the C…

Excerpt from All the Things I'm Missing at Home: Heat level: Hot!

“Make me feel like a woman…” PiƱa’s words collided with the male prowess in me. It wasn’t necessarily the words; it was the way she had said them. It was as if she was pleading with me, tugging at the animalistic sexual desire that she’d stirred up from the moment she responded to my email. “Your poem yesterday,” she said as I pulled her in close to me. “What about it?” I asked. “Did you mean it?” “Which part?” “You said you wanted to touch me and stir something within my soul.” I wrapped my arms around her, placed my hands intimately atop her backside, then slid them down to palm and grip her with enough aggression to let her know I wanted her. She moaned a bit, more like purred. I felt the shiver that settled within her. She smelled damn good, like brown sugar with a hint of something else I couldn’t place. My eyes never left hers. The more she talked, the more I wanted her. I knew she could feel my arousal pressed against her. “I meant it, but in a sense that once I got the chance to be …
