Title: Cheaper to Keep Her
Publisher: K.S. Publications
Lynise Carter was working at a strip club as a bartender. The name of the club was Magic City. Day in and out she had to mix drinks and listen to loser guys talk about their life as well as hit on her on a nightly basis. In the club her best friend and roommate named Diamond worked as a stripper. She was the stripper that brought in all the money. One night a smooth cat by the name of Duke Carrington was trying to talk to Lynise. But she wouldn’t have it. She was tired of all the heartbreak and wouldn’t fall for a man like Duke ever again. Of course, everyone knew about Duke. He was a big time gambler and loan shark, and when it came to women he had no problem spending big paper. That alone made him the perfect man for Lynise. Lynise gave him a chance after her friend Diamond convinced her to date him. They went out and he spent alot of money on her, was the perfect gentlemen etc etc. He finally offered for her to move in with him to one of his condos and she accepted gladly. Now Duke is the type of arrogant guy that tries his hardest to get what he wants. But then Lynise starts noticing that Duke doesn’t come home, leaves all the time and basically doesn’t spend time with her in the condo. She tries to talk to him about it but then he gets upset and asks her if what he does isn’t good enough for her. She like an idiot stays with the treatment he gives her.
Lynise has also been hearing around the grapevine that Duke is running an illegal baby snatching ring with a Doctor friend of his. Of course, Lynise looked into this and found lots of evidence which she made sure to make copies of just in case….All in all she also had to worry about Diamond her best friend too because she thought Diamond was using drugs when they made a pact to never use them. And on top of that Diamond was in an abusive relationship with a guy Diamond could not stand at all. Slowly but surely Lynise started to really see Duke’s colors and she also found out that he was getting married to some other chick in Virginia Beach. She was livid. So, she set out to destroy Duke Carrington. She called all his businesses and froze everything, cancelled everything, she basically was crumbling everything Duke was working hard for. When Duke found this out he barged into the house while Lynise was trying to make a getaway with his money and beat her up and threw her in the street like trash. Eventually Lynise was trying to get jobs everywhere round town but Duke trashed her name everywhere, saying she was a thief and could not be trusted. Lynise was surely in a mess. Lunise was also watching the news one night and saw that a 16 year old was murdered and she recognized her as one of the many girls Duke took the babies from. She of course blackmailed Duke with this and said she wanted 100,000 and she would not say nothing. Duke didn’t take very lightly to her threats and had her best friend Diamond ‘kidnapped”. Little did Lynise know that Diamond and Duke were in Cahootz for a while plotting against Lynise the whole time they were dating. Diamond and Duke were sleeping together and everything. In the end Lynise was charged with many bogus charges that she had no dealing with. How will things work out for Lynise in Cheaper to Keep Her Part 2?

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!!

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!
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.

Title: Lipstick Hustla
Author: Allison Hobbs
Publisher: Strebor books
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!

The book starts off with the Character of the name Brigitte. Brigitte was going out with a guy for 6 years. Her friend Amy was constantly pushing her to get married and have kids, however, Brigitte didn’t feel she was ready for such a commitment. But then her boyfriend had called her one day and said he had to talk to her about something. Was this the proposal that Brigitte was so afraid of? of course her friend Amy was excited. Brigitte slept on it and decided she was ready to accept his proposal. But the news was that her boyfriend had finally gotten his own dig in Eygpt, because he was a pathologist, and he was leaving to Eygypt without her. Totally crushed of course Brigitte asked if she could come, he said no and that he wanted to end their 6 year long relationship. That he wasn’t ready to get married or have kids for that matter. So long story short, they ended it there. And in the very same week she lost her job at the college she was working at for 10 years. Brigitte felt that her life was a waste. She had no man, no job, and a boring ass book on Women’s rights that noone would want to read. She went to her mother’s house and her mother was working on an assignment of finding out about her ancestors. Brigitte took great interest in this and proceeded to go find out about them. Come to realize she had a Sioux Indian in her family and as well as Frenchmen. Wachiwi was a great fighting warrior for being….female. She rode horses better then any of the warriors in her village. And she was respected among many. When a fight occured in her village she was kidnapped by the Crows, another powerful tribe. They killed 2 of her brothers and the guy she liked. She was very ubhappy in The Crows’s tribe and she attempted to escape many times but failed, the leader of the tribe desperately wanted to marry her and wanted hjer to have his children. When Wachiwi would go to the river for swims she would run into a white man named John whom she fell in love with and eventually helped her escape the crows. They finally embarked on a journey to go to Paris since John’s family in New Orleans did not want nothing to do with Wachiwi because she was a savage and would never fit in with their kind. So John decided to take her to Paris where she can learn the language and the ways of his people. As they embarked on their journey to Paris on a ship he taught her french everyday and taught how to act accordingly. Unfortuantely John became very ill and died on the way to Paris. Very close to Paris I may add, there John’s brother Tristan was waiting on his brother’s arrival with his wife in tow. Tristan didn’t expect to find out that his brother had died on his journey to Paris. He also didn’t expect for his brother’s wife to be…Indian. Anyhow, Tristan still took her in regardless of how the woman who took care of his children frowned upon it. Tristan grew very accustomed to Wachiwi and eventually she taught him how to ride and his son. They became very close and eventually started to fall in love. Communicating was becoming very easy because of what John had taught Wachiwi. So, they had kids and lived a fullfilling life. After that, battles starting to occur near there homeland and once again Wachiwi proved her bravery by fighting near her husband’s side. They unfortunately died of age in the end. Back to Brigitte, she was in Paris when she found this all out. Of course, a professor she met there helped her out and eventually they fell in love and got together. Despite her giving him the go around.She eventually took a job in Paris for a year and started a new book on Wachiwi. I for one found this book to be very interesting. I didn’t even expect for Steel to even write something like this because it’s something different then she normally writes about. but, it was pleseant. I enjoyed this historical Fiction a lot and I am now interested in learning more of the Native American history.
