Say Amen Again by Reshonda Tate Billingsley

Drama. From the first word on the first page.

What I liked about the book?

The author kept the story on point there was no wasted characters or action in this book. Seriously I could not put it down once I started because I needed to know what was going to happen next.

What I did not like about the book?

How could the author improve the book?

Not possible. I suspect that she put a lot of herself into this book to make sure that it was as good as the first and I must say that she actually outdid herself.

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

Got a lot to read.

I have been stocking up on books so I have about 30 to read and review so stayed tuned.

Hidden Steel by Doranna Durgin

She woke up in a hospital bed, but not in a hospital at all. Handcuffed to a bed. She had no idea how or why she was there. But it was time to find out....

What I liked about this book?

The action, it was nonstop from the very beginning.

What I did not like about the book?
Honestly, there was nothing not to like it was well written and action packed. There could have been a tad bit more romance. 

How could the book be improved?
Like I said just a tad bit more romance between two of the main characters. 

This was a free book on Amazon, I have no connection to the author.

My Kindle

I have a un-natural love for my kindle I take it with me everywhere I go. I frequently check for free books on Amazon but I also frequent after being told about it on facebook. I have discovered some really good writers and would recommend that you check them out as well.

Not all of the books are free on Smashwords but those that are not are quite reasonable.

Hoping to receive a lot of Amazon gift cards for my birthday!

Book Blogger Hop

I just found the book blogger hop and I am psyched So I have to answer this question:

What’s the ONE GENRE that you wish you could get into, but just can’t?
I am going to say paranormal and some romance novels. 

I mean I review romance novels but some are just microwave books and I can figure them out before I get to the end.

okay I apparently did not add the correct  link for the Book Blogger Hop so this is it

Hot to Touch by Kimberly Kaye Terry

Hot to Touch (Kimani Romance)Hot to Touch by Kimberly Kaye Terry

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this book months ago, in March I believe. I do not know why I failed to review it. It is a pretty good story. Emma is a reporter who is tasked to get as much information about jumpers. Men who parachute into forest fires and try to distinguish the flames. Emma trains with the jumpers and it is immediately obvious that one man does not want her around, Shane.

Shane is one of the best fire jumpers and he does not trust women. His best friend lost his life because of a woman and from then on Shane only saw them as sex partners nothing more.

Needless to say things heat up and cool down for Shane and Emma, but is all the things that happen in between that make this a really good story.

Pleasure for Two by Pamela Yaye

Pleasure for Two (Kimani Romance)Pleasure for Two by Pamela Yaye

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So full of drama! I really like this book although I thought Marcel needed a little more swagger. Marcel had legal issues and really did not express himself in a genuine manner at all times. Dominique was moonlighting a masseuse which causes some issues since some men thought that massages equate to sex.

With family drama and some baggage from a trifling ex-husband Dominique is not to quick to give her heart to Marcel. And in my humble opinion makes him earn his relationship with her. Let me say that there are several people that you will consider slapping if you were in this position.

Not going to say much more or I will give away the story.

This story is about John Stallion and Marah. Marah's father decides to sell his ranch to the Stallion brothers but Marah is not having it. She bursts in on the staff meeting to let the brothers know that her father is not going to sell.

Fast forward ...

this was an okay book but I know the author can do better...

A Change Had to Come by Gwynne Forster

A Change Had To ComeA Change Had To Come by Gwynne Forster

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a good read for me and seriously it was not predictable at all for me. Leticia has come by everything the hard way, she worked for it. She gets her dream job and works her butt off to keep it.

This book is about Leticia taking control of her life and living it the way she wants. About her finding her voice.

She finds love in a co-worker who has had his share of bad experiences and is a little weird as well.
