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!

Meredith Wild's Hacker Series & Bridge Series Giveaway!

Hello, my page turners and bookends! A few weeks ago, I entered a mega giveaway that Meredith Wild, New York Times Bestseller and author of  the wildly popular Hacker Series, was hosting. Out of over 14,000 who entered, I was one of the 300 chosen winners. Imagine how excited I was to get the email that lil' ole me  had been chosen as winner. Now imagine that excitement a hundred times over when I actually opened the door to see my postman delivering boxes of books!

The Hacker Series  has a total of four books. I won ten of each. I also won ten copies of book one to her Bridge Series. So after I took my cut (LOL), I'm now left with nine books of each story from the Hacker Series and nine copies of book one from the Bridge Series. So because Meredith was generous to me, I'm going to return the favor.

I won't ask you to jump through hurdles win these books either. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I'll randomly select winners. I'll also post…

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…

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…
