Propositioning the Rich Italian by Stephanie Morris

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this story as well. Tierra does something that many women wish they would have done. And if I tell you what she did you would be mad at for spoiling the story. Let me tell you if I were not married I would be on my way to Rome so fast.

Enjoy it

Too Close for Comfort by Stephanie Morris

Too Close for ComfortToo Close for Comfort by Stephanie Morris

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book. I could not see how the author was going to get these two together. Kasady was clearly a ice queen she did not let anyone close to her and honestly she was starting to get on my nerves. The doctor was obviously just trying to be nice to her but she seemed to be intent on just being a bit bitchy I must say.

Let's just say that she was very lucky to have him around later on.

I definitely recommend this book

Bring on the Blessings by Beverly Jenkins

Bring on the BlessingsBring on the Blessings by Beverly Jenkins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book so much. Being a foster mom it really hit home with me. This is not a traditional romance novel it is more inspirational than anything else. I really loved that this book brings me back to Henry Adams and the descendants of my favorite characters from other books.

The background stories for each of the foster children is so moving.

There is the teenage girl to old for her own good. Selling her body to make it on the streets.

The car thief, left behind and the best car thief in Detroit.

The smart but chubby boy who burned down his foster mother's house just so he could get moved to a new home where they would buy his asthma medicine.

The preacher who was just a eight year old boy who only wears suits and whose soul is too old for his little body.

And there is the little girl whose story will make you sick. she sat next to her mother's dead body...

trust me there is much more but you will have to read it to get more..

Fear Itself (Fearless Jones Novel) by Walter Mosely

Fear Itself: A Fearless Jones NovelFear Itself: A Fearless Jones Novel by Walter Mosley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story is told from the point of view of Paris Minton not Fearless Jones which makes me wonder who the actual hero of the story is. It does not seem to be Fearless although is the muscle and is quite deadly with a cause for sure.. Unlike Mouse in the Easy Rawlins type stories.

this time Fearless comes to Paris with a case that involves a woman looking for a man that Fearless sometimes works for. But nothing is what it seems and there are dead bodies

Fear of the Dark (fearless jones novel 3) by Walter Mosley

Fear of the Dark (Fearless Jones Novel, No.3)Fear of the Dark by Walter Mosley

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked this book there was alot of death, no sex and plenty of booze. Not much different from the Easy Rawlins series. I think I like Easy better.. Fearless Jones is supposed to be the main character but this book was told from the perspective of his friend Paris Minton.

The story is simply, Paris' cousin Useless comes to his house but Paris won't let him in because the last time he did the police showed up and a whole lot of trouble. And then Ulysses (called Useless by everybody but his mama) goes missing and his mother shows up on Paris' door wanting help finding the manchild.

But his cousin Useless is not his only problem there is his white girl and I can not remember her name because they mainly referred to her as the white girl. Remember this story is set in the 1950's Los Angeles and there was nothing politically correct about that time.

Decoded by Jay Z and Dream Hampton

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book so much. I only wish it was longer and that he had spoken about how he and Beyonce met but the story behind his lyrics really told me a lot. I am a avid fan of his music and was glad he touched on the fact that people know him for the songs on the radio but the songs that are on the album and not radio singles are the songs that the true fans know. The reason behind his this is people don't want to hear a song like Beach Chair which he gives the lyrics to in the book. That is my absolute favorite Jay Z song. The song reflects on all the things you have done in your life and how you hope that your sins are not reflected on your children.
