Can't Get Enough of You by Bette Ford

Can't Get Enough of YouCan't Get Enough of You by Bette Ford
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I loved and hated this book. Jenna grew up in the foster care system and had a great relationship until Scott decided to join the NBA. Jenna felt betrayed because Scott did not follow their teenage plans breaks up with him and moves away.

They both return to Detroit around the same time.  Jenna seemed so naive that it was painful to watch.  I feel that her emotional maturity was minimal. At times I had to put this book down because she was working on my nerves.

She refused to stand up for herself and she seemed to rely alot on Scott although she claimed he was the enemy.

Judge for yourself but I have read better books from this author.

A Little Known by Janice Daugharty

The Little KnownThe Little Known by Janice Daugharty
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was something I did not think that I would like but it was set in the late 50's and early 60's so the language is such.  The Little Known is about a young black boy everybody calls Knot, nobody knows his real name or at least it is never mentioned not even by the woman who pretended to find him in the garbage.

He wants nothing more than to be loved and to help those around him. He is a sum much greater than the parts that make him.  Nothing around him is what it is supposed to be.

This is one of those books that you have to read to the end. The story is complex and nothing is gonna come easy..

Imagine Us by Maureen Smith

Imagine Us (Kimani Romance)Imagine Us by Maureen Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There was so much drama in this book. Neveah is a world renown artist who fled a broken heart. She finally returns to the US only to run into the one person she ever wanted to see again. Even in disguise Xavier recognizes Neveah right away. Of course she wants nothing to do with him but that is not gonna stop Xavier. Xavier black mails Neveah's best friend and co-owner of the gallery into helping him get Neveah alone.

Not going to spoil the story but there is much more to it... Check this one out!

The Committee by Desiree Day

This was an amazing book, it follows five people in Heaven who are supposed to watch over certain people while God takes a nap. well two hours in heaven is two years on earth. The Committee consists of three men and two women from all walks of life who found God. None of the committee members have gotten their wings just yet but they all find that they have special powers.  They also find that Michael the archangel among   others are watching them closely.  I really loved this book. It will move you to tears.

Here I am by Rochelle Alers

Here I Am (Arabesque)Here I Am by Rochelle Alers

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am a big fan of Rochelle Alers, and this was a good read and if the ending had been better it would have been five stars. I am sure that there will be another book because this one started where the last one ended. With Jordan and Aziza's wedding.

The story was hot and well written. I can not wait to see who will get the next story although I am guessing that it will be Brandt's sister.

The Seduction of Hayden by Stephanie Morris

The Seduction of Hayden [Indulgence 2]The Seduction of Hayden [Indulgence 2] by Stephanie Morris

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I loved revisiting this fiery Italian family. It never occurred to me that Hayden and Amalia would be a good match. This book definitely makes me want to travel to Italy and if I weren't already married to get my own Italian.

There was some errors in judgement on Amalia's part and she seem to want to force the relationship thing. But Hayden was giving mixed signals and all the making out in front of her family was kind of weird to me.

There were some typographical errors in the box.

Inseparable by Brenda Jackson

InseparableInseparable by Brenda Jackson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am a fan of the Madaris series and this was a darn good book. There is a killer on the loose in Houston and he is harming innocent women. So of course the Madaris men and friends try to lock down their women!
Seriously though this book focuses on Reese Madaris and his bestfriend Kenna. There is not much I can tell you without spoiling the book for you. I can tell you that this is a who done it to the bitter end!
Enjoy and let me know what you think of the book.

Something Old, Something New: A Blessings Novel

Something Old, Something New: A Blessings NovelSomething Old, Something New: A Blessings Novel by Beverly Jenkins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Third book in the series and let me just say I was way to emotionally invested in this book. This book mainly focuses on Devon the eight year old preacher. Bernadine warned the foster parents that it would take time for the kids to show who they were and oh boy did Devon show out.
There were parts when I wanted to get my belt for his butt. LOL. I can't tell you much about Zoe because it would be a spoiler.

There are some very funny parts in this book and I mean laugh out loud funny parts. There is some sadness as well. Beverly writes a complete story that makes you feel as if you are in that town seeing the events unfold.

A Second Help: a Blessings Novel

A Second Helping:a Blessings NovelA Second Helping:a Blessings Novel by Beverly Jenkins

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the series and as always there is alot going on. There is a murder (you have to read it to believe it); a kidnapping and a reunion. Beverly has got to be the best writer I have ever read in terms of fiction.
This book was so good. I love that the kids have a voice and are not just secondary characters. Heck everybody has something to say in the town of Henry Adams whether you want to hear it or not.
Bernadine still has money and heart and she is still spreading around this town she owns. I love the patience and love she shows Crystal but when Crystal's biological father shows up he finds a hard lesson.

No more! I don't want to spoil it for you.

I'll Catch You by Farrah Rochon

I'll Catch You (Kimani Romance)I'll Catch You by Farrah Rochon

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Okay this book started out really well for me but it left me with some questions in the end. Did Payton ever meet Derrick? What happened in the end?

There were a lot of wholes in the story for me. I doubt that the author did this intentionally I am going to assume it was editing because Farrah is a pretty good writer based on my previous reads from her.

I finished the book which means it kept my interest. I may read this again to make sure that I did not miss anything.
