Black President 3: 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, Black President 3 by BHE. I should note that this book is 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 Black President 3.

Well, I'm back again with another review for book 3 in the Black President series. I must say, while this book didn't hold back any punches, it didn't get my emotions toiling like the last two books. However, Brenda Hampton is never one to disappoint. Book three picks up where book two left off. Last book, we all know someone tried to cause the president great bodily harm and it would have worked if not for the president's quick thinking. 


Nothing has changed between the First Lady and the First Mother. They are still at one another's throats and you would think they would get tired by now, but alas, they're not. And I cackled when Teresa told Raynetta that she probably didn't have meat in her teeth because she had a lot of gaps. I hollered! 

I kind of felt bad for VP Tyler. He has hatred in his blood and it all came from his rich tycoon grandpappy. I don't understand how anyone can have that much hate in their hearts, but alas, we see it and hear it everyday. 

The president is a gangster, I give him that. He played the American people like a fiddle and ended up getting exactly what he wanted, which was  gun reform. Also,  that reporter chick that he cheated with in book two got the short end of the stick, but I can't say I felt bad for her. I mean, I felt bad because...racism. But other than that? Nah. 

I will say the highlight of this book was the talk the President and the First Lady had near the end of the book. I respected the both of them a lot more after that. It had been a long time coming and I have to admit, President Jefferson may be an arse, but underneath the facade is a loving man as was evident with the way he handled the Michelle situation and what he did for the First Lady near  the end of the book. 


But honey the creme de le creme came at the ending when Teresa  dropped the bombshell on us all. I wasn't ready! Stephen should have never told his mama to respect his wife or get the heck on! 



But something has to give. Why in heck does this woman hate Raynetta so much? It has to be more than her not wanting to give Stephen a child. It has to be. You don't hate a woman that much over something so trivial. I don't  know. I can't say. Maybe we all have different levels of things that tick us off. 

All I know is, I can't wait to see what happens in book four. I thought this would be a three book series, but I guess that has changed now. I hope it comes to an end soon. In the end, I give this book four pages (think four-stars). I caught a few grammatical errors which is the reason for the four pages. 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

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

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
