Black President 2: 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, Black President 2: The World Will Never Be the Same by BHE. I should note that this book is 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 Black President 2.

I am shaking my darn head after this one! So Black President 2 picks up right where part one left off and let me just say, President Stephen Jefferson needs his behind handed to him. But let me not  jump ahead of myself. Book two opens up with First Lady Raynetta Jefferson in her feelings about the President's trip to Africa. She knows very well what her husband has been up to and she in not  in the  least bit thrilled. She even marched into Chanel's, you know the skanky reporter from the first book, office and told her a thing or two about herself. But when I tell you, I didn't expect the First Lady to go full-blown girls from the hood on that man while he was in the Oval Office, I ain't lying!

But wait, that's not the kicker, honey! The President did not disappoint. President Stephen Jefferson has to be the most hood of Presidents that I've ever met. He and the First Lady showed their natural hood behinds and I was stunned to complete silence. I couldn't believe what I seeing nor reading. What kind of folly is this? I thought.

Fast forward, the President tells the First Lady he knows she's lying about the story she concocted about not being able to have kids. That calmed the First Lady right  on down and sent her running like a scalded cat right out the room. We know from the first book that President Jefferson  has a bit of a lust problem. Well in this book, that problem still remains, but I'm so disappointed in our President.

I have to ask, with a shooting on a military base, two Black people gunned down by the police, the incident with Speaker Robinson, and your mother going full-blown alcoholic, why would  the President choose to go on a rendezvous in the park? Why, President Jefferson, even after you had just admitted to the American people that you had defiled your marriage bed? Never mind the apology he gave to the First Lady was sub-par at best, lackadaisical at worst.

I have never not liked a man the way I didn't like President Jefferson in that moment. I mean, he did absolutely nothing but give orders. He was not in  the least bit presidential. All the tragedies happening around him and all he did was go to the park? President Stephen Jefferson is arrogant and careless. He's is not a man I'd want leading my country and I'm not a Republican. We, the American people, can't afford to have a man in office who's so careless, especially not a Black man! Did President Jefferson not learn anything from President Obama? Apparently not. And I know if President Jefferson could read this, he would probably try to come back with some long winded think piece about this, that, and the third because it's what he does and he's an arrogant careless man. Now I'm not saying President Obama may or may not have done some things behind closed doors, but the point is, we didn't hear about it!

First Lady Raynetta isn't off the hook either. Her excuse as to why she told that bold face lie was poppycock. She's an overgrown arse woman acting like a complete fool! I wanted  to yell, "Your man is running a country, woman! He doesn't have time for you to be barging into meetings acting like ya'll still live on the mean streets of St. Louis!" But that still doesn't excuse the President's actions.

I must ask, does he not realize what kind of power he has as a Black man in the White House running the free world? And all he can do is bark out orders and go to the park? Mind you, he's gone to the park  twice now. After that ending though, I sure as heck hope the President had an epiphany on his way down. I just don't know what to say other than, I give this book 4-pages (think 4-stars). My annoyance at the ignorance of the President won't allow me to give it five. However, Nikki-Michelle most definitely recommends this book.

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…

Coming soon: Tell Me No More

“He’s getting married!”
“What?”
“Jamie… he’s getting married,” I repeated frantically.
There was a wild look of panic in my eyes, I was sure. My whole world seemed to be crashing down around me. Nothing prepared me for the news that the man I still loved was about to walk down the aisle and make another woman his wife. Kay had to catch me in her arms before my legs gave out on me. For four years I’d been trying to come to grips with the fact that I’d let a good man get away.
Jamie and I had been together for almost two years before I’d cheated on him with my son’s father’s best friend. I’d met Jamie while I was head over heels in love with Aric. Even after finding out Aric was married, I held on to hope that he and I could be together. That was until his wife, Stephanie, tried to kill me and my son while I was pregnant with him. Even then, it took a while for me to see that Aric and I just weren’t meant to be together.
I finally saw that Jamie was the man I needed. Everything was g…

Dirty Diana: A Review

Wow! What a great short story. "Dirty" Diana was a bad arse MMA fighter, but after a disappointing last fight, she thought things couldn't get any worse. That was until a call from her aunt turned her world upside down. Diana never thought she would set foot back into her small hometown, however, the fates had other plans. While home, Diana confronts all the demons she thought she'd left behind. Dirty Diana may not have gotten closure the way she expected, but life doesn't always work that way. Life had always thrown Diana curveballs and this time was no different. For the record, Dwight deserved every bit of "that."

Ms. Mason did a wonderful job of giving us a short story with an intriguing beginning, a climatic middle, and a complete ending. I give this book five-pages (think five-stars). Nikki-Michelle recommends this book!
