You and I Alone by Melissa Topen

A story I really didn’t see coming. This love took place in a place that I didn’t think possible. It was really one of the reasons why this book was so hard to put down. The author took two different worlds, three really and started to merge them all together in one sexual tryst that will have you just constantly turning the pages of this next book. Take the owner of a very rich club and an exotic dancer that is very headstrong and mix them together. Well, you know what’s going to happen, but what you really want to know is how on this journey of lust.

Now there are two sides to this first character which made me more intrigued to read this book. One one side Anna is young girl who lost everything due to a knee injury in ballet and had to reshape her life without dancing. She is going to college and is focused on the realization that graduation is close. She is very set in her ways and knows that she doesn’t want anything to do with the word ‘relationship’. Both there is another side of her that very few know about except in this establishment.

Unequally Yoked by Sherry Lynn Snow - Book Review


Is not just a divine tale of an unequal marriage, but a lesson of letting the Lord come in and fix your marriage. This book is story of one woman’s obstacles when trying to make her walk with the Lord match the same in her husband while giving you steps and healing to its readers.  I liked this book not because it was a documentary, but because of it realness with the author. By talking about her own path and troubles, I feel she was really able to connect with readers who are having the same struggle and would be one of those books that I would give to not just couples who are going through it. I would suggest this to new couples as well so that they know and really look at each other and their own marriage.

The book starts off with these prayer request of couples really going through that those really start to paint the picture of what you are going to be reading. All of these couples have found their spouses not walking with God as they are and that that was causing trouble that needed heavy prayer.

Breathless by Shani Greene-Dowdell - Book Review

This book starts with one of those steamy mysterious scenes that had mind reeling. And to put the cherry on the cake, this man was not your regular joe off the street. Their meeting was fate, well it felt like that to me.

Destiny is just getting out of a divorce and vowed to stayed single and loving it, but all that changed when she met Jacob. First off, this book takes a tailspin by showing you what happened and then turns around and shows you how it happened. It doesn’t stop there though as you see that Jacob has really strong feeling for her from jump street, so much so that he dumps his girlfriend for it.

All is not what it seems when a month later, Destiny goes to see him. Jacob tells her one thing, but you are quickly shown to each other. You would think that is reason enough, but love has a way of always pulling these two together. Now at first, I felt like Jacob was all talk and lots of sex, but as I continued to read it. You see that he was really trying to bare his soul to Destiny and she was falling just as hard. Except Destiny was reluctant to really listen to her heart and her mind was really in control.

Ask Me Again 2 by Theresa Hodge - Book Review

Just to clear the air, you have to read the first book before you can even understand what is going on is this second book. Alyssa and Drake, still more in love that ever and with a little bundle in tow, but not everything is what is seems. You also meet the best friends of these characters who you met in the first book in this series. This book is so steamy, I mean I thought I had read all there is when it came to the love Drake showed on Alyssa, but I was pretty wrong. Get ready to experience the old school loved mixed with a bit of new as you start to see other relationships form.

This book picks up just a few months after the first book and you have come across a very huge plot twist. You see the aftermath of everyone trying to cope with an weird situation. Alyssa and Drake are still going strong. Weston is still coping with the death of his ex-wife and comes across a young woman named Bernadette that shows him that he can love again. The plot was very smooth but the details are what pulled me.

Ask Me Again by Theresa Hodge - Book Review

So through the tragic loss of her best friend, Alyssa finds herself back in her hometown for her funeral where she meets her ex, Drake.  All I can say was, at this point I wanted to know what really happened. The first few pages you see what happened, but I go the feeling I didn’t get the whole story. Even though she had every reason to leave him, I mean I would have dipped out too. After the funeral, Drake is still feeling her despite her having this great life with another man in another state. You can almost tell that it never really ended.

Alyssa ends up going back to New York and her boyfriend with all of this guilt and life goes on as normal.  Drake isn’t feeling normal though because he is feeling Alyssa way too much despite her telling him that they couldn’t do this between them. It almost just felt normal for him to call her “Baby” and she didn’t object to it at all.  He was all trying to convince her that what they had was real and would always last and she was torn between two men.
