CALLING MALCOLM BLACK: Introducing Jeremy Felipe: A Review...

Hey, YAWL! I know it's been a while since I've done a review. I have been in a reading rut, but luckily for me, the ever-so-wise Angelia Vernon Menchan managed to pull me out of my reading slump. Let's get into the first book in her new series, CALLING MALCOLM BLACK: Introducing Jeremy Felipe, shall we?

First I'd like to say what a beautiful BLACK love story. I enjoyed this immensely. While I like a little messiness (okay a lot of messiness) in my books, there is nothing like a good old-fashioned love story. Mrs. Menchan managed to give us wise and rooted love with Malcolm and Cinnamon Black along with some new and fresh love with Francine and Jeremy. Also, I just want to say that Cinnamon is going to give Malcolm another heart attack with the way she has him falling between her thighs every chance they get. LOL. 

I loved the way Jeremy wooed Francine. He wasn't overbearing or pushy. He allowed them to move at a pace they were both comfortable with. Jeremy was well off, but not flashy. That was also a plus. Francine is the funniest most down-to-earth ex-nun, I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. She, too, was a breath of fresh air as she didn't need rescuing--a lot of romance novels do the the damsel in distress thing these days-- and she had her own. Even still, she wasn't so independent that she didn't allow Jeremy to wine and dine her.  

I also want to say I love the way Malcolm and  Cinnamon mentored that young couple. I feel that if more young black couples had mentors like the Blacks, we would have a lot more two-parent homes. The Blacks were never judgmental all the while, they kept ish real. You hear me? I felt the ministry they were doing deep in my soul. 

All-in-all, I give this book five-pages (think five-stars). 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…

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 …
