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.

New Movie Review: Deuces

So I watched Deuces last night. It's a new movie starring Larenz Tate, Lance Gross and Meagan Goode. The premise of the story is damn near like every one of those hood novels that are so popular on Amazon these days. If you've read any novel considered hood or urban lit, then you've seen this movie already. And just like some of the hood/urban lit novels, the movie had a few issues. That didn't take away from the fact I kinda enjoyed the jawn. The story goes a little something like this: Man is a drug dealer. Man wants to go legit. Man meets girl. Girl falls in love with man. A new dude comes into the crew. It shakes up crazy and before you know it, the shit done hit the fan. I give the movie a solid three-stars and that's only because it was good to see Larenz Tate on the screen again. However, some of the acting left a lot to be desired. Still, if you got nothing to do on a late night, I'd recommend it.

Deleted scene from Bi-Sensual: Unedited/Update on David, Summer, and Michael

“I can’t believe you’ve been in Atlanta this long and didn’t tell me,” Summer said. I smiled at her. Summer was a good friend of mine. We’d met long ago, back in college when I was just a timid shy girl who jumped at her own shadow. She still looked the same minus a few extra pounds from baby weight. She was pregnant with one child while another was on her hip. The little boy was a beautiful specimen of a child. However, his honey golden eyes told me whose child he was. Summer’s life had given me the background story to my last NYT best seller. She told me the story of her and her husband, who was bisexual, and his friend, Michael. The writer in me went wild. Of course I asked her if I could write about it. She told me I could, but by God, she had never told me Michael had fathered her child. My eyes were as wide as saucers. “Are you and David still together?” I asked. “Yeah, why do you ask me that?” I made no bones about looking directly at the child on her hip. “He looks like Micha…

Naughtier Than Nice: A Review

This is another 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, Naughtier Than Nice by Eric Jerome Dickey. I should note that this book is NOT on Kindle Unlimited. 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 Naughtier Than Nice.

Man, whew. I've waited so long for EJD to get back to this style of writing. Now don't get me wrong I love Gideon and  the chick from A Wanted Woman, but I longed for the day EJD would get back to the Cheaters and Liar's Game style of writing. Once I read One Night earlier this year, I knew I was going to get Naughtier Than Nice. First off, let me say it did my heart some good to get an update…
