Review: Shady- Dell Banks

Title: Shady

Author: Dell Banks

Publisher: Heir To The Throne Publications

Pages: 240

rating: 5/5

I won this book in a giveaway and it didn’t disappoint me at all. For it being Dell’s first novel he wrote well.
From the beginning Giselle had a tough life in the hands of her evil witch mother called Gretta. Gretta was nothing but a bitter and jealous old hag towards Giselle because Giselle was beautiful and because she had alot going for her. Something Gretta always wanted but could never get. Giselle was definitely a ghetto Cinderella. And her mother was the evil mother. Dell brought all the characters to life and added hot and spicy sex to the mix as well as lying, deceit, and of course shadiness. The best spicy sex scene was with the detective. Who doesn’t like a good sex scene right?
The book was definitely full of drama. The title lives up to the name because everything done was completely shady especially Jodi’s stank ass. OMG! can you say I wanted kill Jodi for being a heartless, self- centered, egotistical jerk? I mean he really didn’t give two flying eff’s about his kids that were about to be born or when they were born for that matter! Even after they were born he referred to them as bastards that would ruin his image. What also mad me mad about Jodi is how he threw the idea of abortion around like it was an idea to go walk in the park or something. What a trifiling dude. And please don’t start me on Sequoia.I knew that chick was shady from the beginning…yet another person jealous of Giselle’s success. I absolutely loved Shady I cannot wait for Part 2!!!
So what are you waiting for get your copy today!!

Review: Scandalicious- Allison Hobbs



Title: Scandalicious

Author: Allison Hobbs

Publisher: Strebor Books

Pages: 352

Rating: 5/5

Synopsis
Solay is the proud owner of Scandalicious, a trendy cupcake boutique that’s raking in the dough. Practically married to her business, Solay does not have time for romance or it’s complications. What she needs is a friend with benefits. When she hires a gorgeous male escort, she believes she’s found the perfect solution. Addicted to his incredible bedroom skills, Solay soon discovers that being “whipped” is as distracting as being in love. Lincoln has been a faithful husband for seven years. His world collapses when he discovers that his trophy wife has been cheating. Though she pleads for forgiveness, he simply can’t. Will his desire for vengeance overpower his ability to forgive?
Melanee is a quiet assistant baker by day and part of a secret sex society at night.
What happens when you combine sweet treats, explosive sex, and dirty little secrets is absolutely Scandalicious!

My Thoughts:
I was very excited to start Allison’s new book Scandalicious. So I went to Target and bought it and started to read it, instantly I was sucked in by the storyline. Solay owns a cupcake shop and she eats, breathes, and sleeps Scandalicious.On the menu? Scandalous cupcakes that taste and sound sexy. Yes…I said it sexy tasting cupcakes! Her love life absolutely sucks…well that is until she hires a male escort named Dion to take care of all her needs. And I do mean these two have amazing, incredible nasty sex. (Just the way I like my books written).
Then you have Lincoln, whose having incredibly bad sex. His wife just doesn’t know her way around the bedroom? hmm…wonder why though? Lincoln finds out that she’s actually saving the good sex for her lover. Mr. Raheem the mechanic. Of course, Lincoln finds out and is ready to kill….literally!! But he hires the wrong person for the job and things take a turn for the worse.
Melanee, the strange little assistant baker whose into some major kinky acts at night after she leaves the bake shop. This chick was just plain strange in every word. I mean I can understand getting a little rough in the bedroom for a little pleasure but she takes rough to another level. I felt Colden was a total asshole who was full of himself and felt people should bow to his feet. Even though Melanee enjoyed being treated like that by Colden I really think took to a different level. Obviously Melanee was looking for love and caring in all the wrong places.
Then there’s Vidal. Boy is he a character. I didn’t consider him funny I saw him as a sarcastic ass who got away with wayyy too much mess being that that wasn’t his shop to begin with.
All in all I was not disappointed with Allison…am I ever? Nope. I am hoping that there is a Part 2 to this.

Review: Daddy’s House- Azarel

Title: Daddy’s House

Author: Azarel

Publisher: Life Changing Books

Pages: 231

Rating: 5/5

From the back cover:
A life filled with fast money and violence lands twenty-three year old Candice Holmes in the witness protection program designed to keep witnesses safe. When Candice finds out that no one is capable of saving her from the wrath of the ruthless family she is scheduled to testify against, she finds herself on the run.
With nowhere to hide, she ends up feeling to New York City where she is introduced to Daddy, who owns a house where little girls are doing big things. Candice soon realizes that the street life she left behind is nothing compared to what goes on at Daddy’s House. Between doing what it takes to survive and hiding her identity, Candice conquers one pitfull after another. Soon, all things come to an end when she goes too-to-toe with the vicious woman who has the ability to put her six feet under, or sell her to the highest bidder.
My thoughts:
First off I saw alot of reviews on Amazon on how the story didn’t seem real and they couldn’t follow it. How can something like that not happen in real life? There’s actually the Bunny Ranch in Las Vegas that’s a legalized prostitution place just like Daddy’s House. The Girls dress up and wait for someone to pick em out the line and bam they do whatever.

Review:Daddy Long Stroke- Cairo

Title: Daddy Long Stroke

Author: Cairo

Publisher: Strebor Books

Pages: 375

Rating: 5/5

Mr. Alexander Maples is a thuggish man who uses his good looks and sex game to manipulate woman every chance he gets. This man is of a different caliber. I’ve never seen someone who likes to have more sex then this guy.
This is my first Cairo book and he and other people were right about the fact that he’s explicit with his stories, while reading this I was like WOAH! I thought it was too much at first, but then I started getting into the story. The story was funny as much as messed up at the same time. Alex disgusted me in every way, the way he treated and manipulated women was uncalled for and I found myself hating him more and more with each page that I read. But another thing that pissed me off was how stupid the women were too. I mean sometimes he was very blunt with them about what he wanted then he would ridicule them as well and they would still come back again! I mean it was like they set themselves up for it. On top of everything he was also using these women for their money as well. Sure Mr. Maples can satisfy a woman in every need that she desires but, is he capable of satisfying her in the love department? NOT! This man has no scruples and isn’t capable of loving anyone but himself. He’s arrogant and self-indulged…definitely not my cup of tea Mr. Maples…not by a long shot.
This story is filled with out of this world sex, drama drama drama, comedy and moments where you just want to take this man and kick the shit out of him. I definitely recommend this book but that’s only if you like Raw, uncut, graphic sex and graphic language, definitely not for the faint of heart.

Review: Brave Hearts- Cynthia Brown

Title: Brave Hearts

Author: Cynthia Brown

Publisher: Xilibris Coporation

Pages: 396

Rating: 5/5

This Book was definitely full of some brave people. I Loved every story in here. The book was about 14 Police Officers who showed tremendous amount of effort while on the line of Duty. Many faced the same big challenge while on duty…the terrorist attacks on 9/11/2001. Some of my favorite stories were of:
Rich Miller
Mike Morra
Sam Panchal
Ann-Margaret Lyons and Pete Tetukevich
Bobby Hom
John Busching
Bobby Johnson
Steve Bonano
Kai Wong
Barry Galfano
These are just the many people who have put their life on the line to protect us citizens. Reading about these people just makes me want to be an NYPD Officer more and more everyday. Especially how some of the officers described what a great passion this was for them since they were small and it’s all they live for. That’s exactly how I feel for it, and I cannot wait for the day. Overall I really enjoyed this book and I would recommend it to every Law Enforcement junkie, it’s really a motivational book.

Review: Lipstick Hustla- Allison Hobbs

Title: Lipstick Hustla

Author: Allison Hobbs

Publisher: Strebor books

Pages: 352

Rating: 5/5

I am a big fan of Allison Hobbs and her work, and she hasn’t disappointed me yet…and I don’t think she ever will. This book in my opinion is simply awesome. Even though I didn’t read “Double Dippin” or “Big Juicey Lips” I could definitely envision Misty and Brick. And envision the history they had before in prior works. Allison has a way of using descriptive words to the point where you can picture the scene. She uses really graphic violence scenes that make you go DAMN! and the sex scenes are also HOT! Misty is one of those characters that you just love to hate because of all the messed up crap that she does to people. In the end she loses everything that to her she has accomplished. I seriously didn’t want to see her go because I really was hoping that this would continue into a sequel but I really don’t think it will. This book was definitely wicked and full of drama. She had me cracking up though with that ashy dude though. I will continue reading Allison’s books. Forever a loyal fan!

Review: True You- Janet Jackson with David Ritz

Title: True You

Authors: Janet Jackson with David Ritz

Publisher: Gallery Books/ Karen Hunter Publishing

Pages: 272

Rating: 5/5

I Liked this book for many reasons and disliked it also. The reason I liked this book is because Janet was brave enough to really say what was going on behind the scenes when everyone thought she was happy and okay with everything. A lot of people can’t straight up say hey this is what went on. Another thing was I could relate to what she went through, as a person whose always questioning her body image because of constantly being ridiculed by family and other people, I found this book empowering. I am glad I am not the only one going through this ordeal as many people out there are going through it also. I am glad that she wrote this book and confronted her demons. Because stuff like what she went though can really damage a person for life if nothing is done about it. What I didn’t like about the book is that I felt It was rushed too quickly. It’s like it wasn’t completely put well together. I also didn’t like that she used to many other people in her book, the book should have just focused on her and her struggles alone. Also she only focused on one main song of hers, she didn’t really go to in depth about her life, or her acting career, such as films like: “Poetic Justice” (which is one of my fave movies) “Why Did I get Married 1 and 2” as well as go in depth about “For Colored Girls”. I think she had the right idea by writing this book..I just think she needs to give more details next time. Give it another try.
