Sugar Ain't So Sweet: A Review


This was a likable read. It tells the story of Shannan, who has been a devoted wife and mother, but apparently her husband and children didn't get the memo. Between doing her "wifely duties" and being an incredible mother, Shannan finds that she is also a darn maid, cook, dry cleaner, and everything else to her in-laws. That is until she gets fed up and says enough is enough. She's way better than I am because I'd have told those jokers to get the heck on a long time ago.

Why is that sometimes women have to take drastic measures in order for a man to "get it"? I fear that if Shannan hadn't done what she did, she would have indeed died.

The author did a good job pulling us in from the first page, but during the middle it got a little repetitive. However, for this to be a short story, we got a full story with no cliffhangers. I give this book four-pages (think four-stars). Nikki-Michelle recommends this book.

Get it here!

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…

Almost Doesn't Count: Part 1

Hello, everyone. I know it's been a long time. While I haven't released anything in a year or so (depression is kicking my ass), I am behind the scenes creating. However, until I do release something new, I've decided to release parts of a story I wrote in 2005, long before I became a published author. I'll release a new part, on my website, every week. And it's FREE! Here's the first part:
Isis August 2005...
They say all good things come to an end, and I guess you could just add my relationship to the list. I should have known my relationship with Louis was too good to be true. I met him when I was in court one day the year before. I’d gotten a ticket that I was trying to fight because the cop sexually harassed me before he issued it to me. Then to top that off, he lied and said that I’d solicited him. The shit I had to go through just because of my job description always annoyed me.
I told Louis I didn’t have any money and he assured me that was okay as long as…

Isis After Louis had beat my behind in the parking lot of my job, I could admit that it had me scared and depressed a little bit. He had been calling, and I’d been ignoring him. Part of me wanted to press charges, but I knew he was well-connected in Atlanta. He could make my life a living hell and I didn’t want that. I really just wanted him to leave me alone.
I didn’t go into my job for the last two nights because of the bruises decorating my neck, eyes, and swollen lips.Part of me also knew that Louis would be there. I didn’t have to worry about him showing up at my school …
