Black President 3: 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 3 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 3.

Well, I'm back again with another review for book 3 in the Black President series. I must say, while this book didn't hold back any punches, it didn't get my emotions toiling like the last two books. However, Brenda Hampton is never one to disappoint. Book three picks up where book two left off. Last book, we all know someone tried to cause the president great bodily harm and it would have worked if not for the president's quick thinking. 


Nothing has changed between the First Lady and the First Mother. They are still at one another's throats and you would think they would get tired by now, but alas, they're not. And I cackled when Teresa told Raynetta that she probably didn't have meat in her teeth because she had a lot of gaps. I hollered! 

I kind of felt bad for VP Tyler. He has hatred in his blood and it all came from his rich tycoon grandpappy. I don't understand how anyone can have that much hate in their hearts, but alas, we see it and hear it everyday. 

The president is a gangster, I give him that. He played the American people like a fiddle and ended up getting exactly what he wanted, which was  gun reform. Also,  that reporter chick that he cheated with in book two got the short end of the stick, but I can't say I felt bad for her. I mean, I felt bad because...racism. But other than that? Nah. 

I will say the highlight of this book was the talk the President and the First Lady had near the end of the book. I respected the both of them a lot more after that. It had been a long time coming and I have to admit, President Jefferson may be an arse, but underneath the facade is a loving man as was evident with the way he handled the Michelle situation and what he did for the First Lady near  the end of the book. 


But honey the creme de le creme came at the ending when Teresa  dropped the bombshell on us all. I wasn't ready! Stephen should have never told his mama to respect his wife or get the heck on! 



But something has to give. Why in heck does this woman hate Raynetta so much? It has to be more than her not wanting to give Stephen a child. It has to be. You don't hate a woman that much over something so trivial. I don't  know. I can't say. Maybe we all have different levels of things that tick us off. 

All I know is, I can't wait to see what happens in book four. I thought this would be a three book series, but I guess that has changed now. I hope it comes to an end soon. In the end, I give this book four pages (think four-stars). I caught a few grammatical errors which is the reason for the four pages. Nikki-Michelle recommends this book!

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…

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…
