What Tastes Like Love by Zuri Day

What Love Tastes LikeWhat Love Tastes Like by Zuri Day

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

First off I have to say that I received this book directly from the author for my review.

I liked the book a lot. I had a slight problem with the references to the female genital area. In other words the terms used were dated and just a little un refined. I would have preferred she just use the vulgar term as apposed to what was used.

Now on to the story it was quite a good story. Dominique is the male character, he is rich, sexy and aggressive. You will know right away that he always goes after what he wants and usually wins. He has a conscience a keen sense of who is and a good amount of sexiness.

Tiffany is the female lead character with a host of issues. She is a sous chief with dreams of opening her own spot. She does not have the support of her parents but her grandmother and best friend are more than enough support.

I enjoyed the book and my copy is not the final edit so the language may have changed in the final edited version.

most of the posts had to be copied from my other blogs and are not in order so that is why you will see older books up front and some of the newer ones closer to the bottom of the blog..
As I moved forward this will not be the issue

Dying in the Dark by Valerie Wilson Wesley

Dying in the Dark: A Tamara Hayle MysteryDying in the Dark: A Tamara Hayle Mystery by Valerie Wilson Wesley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoy Valerie's novels and this one was no exception. It is frustrating the position that Tamara puts herself into. Especially since she does not seem to get paid for her services on the more dangerous cases.

To Love A Stranger by Adrianne Byrd

To Love A Stranger (Kimani Romance)To Love A Stranger by Adrianne Byrd

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

To Love A Stranger was a good read (not great), but good. I have to admit that part of the storyline was pretty original and it proved that love is the most powerful emotion known to man.

Madeline Stone was a good character, she had enough sass and spunk to laugh when her husband’s plane crashed. (I applauded at that). She had no love for the man who was supposed to be her husband risen from the dead. Her only concern was losing the business she had built after his demise. But again it is funny how love and the right touch can change things.

Christopher Stone, was what I would call a shell of a man. He seemed to have lost a huge part of himself when his brother’s plane went down. He wanted nothing more than to have his brother back with him, even if it was a lie.

Designed for Passion by Francine Craft

Designed For Passion (Kimani Romance)Designed For Passion by Francine Craft

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I just finished this book last night and for the first time I was not really happy with a book by Francine Craft. Don't get me wrong this is not going in my give away box (which is reserved for books that I absolutely hated). As with most books I read this book in about four hours (last night) the first thing that ticked me off was that Meloyde was self conscious which was so sterotypical, (please note some of us love being thick and fabulous) there was no real description of her other than the comments that Jim kept making about her. The lame excuse her mother gave for treating her so badly and then to only slap her again with an off handed remark about Lucia wanting Jim sucked. I wanted her to go off on her mother and her sister. She stood up to Jim when he was just trying to love her but not to the two heifers who caused her pain. She said nothing even when Lucia told her that she was sleeping with Rafael and that the money was intended for her. Next time I hope that Ms. Craft makes her plus sized character a little more fierce. I will rate this book 3 out of 5 stars mostly because of the character Jim and the way he was protrayed. I could close my eyes and see his reactions to certain things. Ms. Craft made him real as could be, and because Papa France and Miss Belle.
