Widowed: A Review

Widowed was a wonderful story from start to finish. I already knew Arista would be a character I could connect with from the moment I read the first few pages. The story starts with Arista grieving her late husband, Paul. From there she meets Donald and that's when the sparks start to fly. I liked Donald instantly. Normally I'm not a fan of the older woman, younger man story lines as most authors tend to try too hard to make the connection seem authentic. However, Angelia's characters' connection seemed authentic from the jump.

Widowed told the story of woman who had loved and loved hard, but when it was time to move on, she wasn't so sure. It took a lot of soul searching for Arista to really give herself another chance at love. Donald was the perfect man for her to do this with. Tall, dark, and fine in every sense of the word.

And then you had Jackson and my mother always said if can't say anything nice then don't say anything at all. So I won't. LOL! Yona was something else altogether. But I can see how Donald's father would be taken with her. I'd love to get awakened and put to sleep the same way to be honest. LOL! Johnetta, Donald's mother, tickled me pink. She was a riot and I always love Elders who have a dry wit like sense of humor. Now Paul's secrets caught me completely off guard and I was ready for that at all!

All-in-all, I give Widowed five pages (think five-stars). Nikki-Michelle 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…

A Review (finally): Acrimony

I finally watched the movie Acrimony...

I want everyone who said that Taraji had no reason to be mad or snap to tell me why you feel that way?

Because listen...

That man cheated on her, used her money until she had not a dime left, had her carry the financial weight of their whole marriage for over twenty damn years. She begged and pleaded with this man to get a job and help her. Begged and pleaded...

This woman was tired. And YET, she worked and worked and worked in order for him to sit home and work on his craft.

Finally, after draining the damn life out of her, he gets on. His invention gets picked up, after she leaves him.

After she says enough is enough is when his ship comes sailing in. He then gets with another woman who knew someone who knew someone... She pulled some strings to get him put on.

THE SAME DAMN WOMAN HE CHEATED ON HER WITH ALL THOSE YEARS AGO!

He gives Taraji ten-million-dollars and buys her mama house back that she lost because of him.

All of this after over twent…
