She Was Born With a Veil: A Review

I was so excited to get this book. I'd read excerpts and the subject matter is something I'm very familiar with. I come from the south so there are a lot of older women, and some younger, who say they were born with veils over their eyes. Rumor has it, I was, too. But that's neither here nor there.

The book starts of with heroine, Arnia, dealing with the loss of someone she loved very dearly. From the first page I knew Arnia was going to be someone I liked. She leaped from the pages. Her attitude, her aura, he self-absurdness could be felt as I read the book. I loved the way she handled that old bitty,Wilma. In a sense, I felt sorry for Wilma. I know what it's like to wonder if your mother loves/loved you. To never hear your mother say those words can be soul crushing. So I empathized with the old woman there, but that's about where my love for her ended. LOL. Although she did provide a lot of comedic relief.

Next up is Andre. I really appreciated his presence in the book. He was flawed and he knew it. He didn't run or hide from it. I appreciated that about Andre and loved the way Arnia didn't hold his past against him.

Then we have Melton. That man was some kind of fine and he had a way with words that could make any woman throw her underoos at him. Melton knew what he wanted and after some initial jealousy of the other men who wanted Arnia's attention, Melton got it together.

This book is one you curl up with on a warm spring day when the wind is blowing just right. You get yourself a nice cool glass of lemonade and just immerse yourself into the world of Angelia V. Menchan. As most of her readers will tell you, she writes for grown folk and she does so in a way that isn't preachy, but you will most definitely get the message.

With that being said, I rate this book four-pages (think four-stars). I enjoyed this book and read it within a matter of hours. Will I be ready for part two? I can most definitely see that...

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
