Confessions of a Love Addict: A Review...

Whew! What an incredible ride! I read this novella in three hours. I probably would have been done sooner, but I had to do motherly ish, eat lunch and such. Anyway, let's get into this review.

Marcus Albright was a man in love...constantly. From one woman to the next, Marcus couldn't seem to love a woman past those first few months of sex and more sex. However, as the saying goes, there is always that one person who can change the tides. Marcus has an adulterous and treacherous ex-wife, an ex-fling who feels slighted, a snobby best friend, and a new woman who goes against tradition. What's a man to do? Well, I don't know about other men, but Marcus went to therapy, which was one of the best decisions he'd made in a long time.

Confessions of a Love Addict is the only book that I've read straight through this whole year. I have been in one hell of a reading slump, but this book captured my attention from the moment I opened the first page. This is a feel good love story of a different kind. I thoroughly enjoyed walking Marcus' journey with him. I felt as if he is one of the most flawed, true-to-self, men I've read about in a long time. Marcus is a man's man and it's proven by the way he handled the situation with little Marshall.

Sheba, Marcus's "best friend", needs a little therapy herself. You're going to have to read the book to find out why. I absolutely loved Drika. She was down to earth and easy to relate to from the moment she was introduced to us. As far as Prenisha, she is exactly where she should be and hopefully she, too, gets some therapy while there.  Mrs. Menchan, whom I've taken to calling a Griot, gave me a "feel good" feeling while reading this book. I smiled. I laughed. I shook my head a couple times at Marshall's antics. And now, I want fried chops with pancakes. LOL!

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…
