I’m Reading…Power, Seduction & Scandal

I’m Reading…Power, Seduction, & Scandal by Angela Winters. This is the fourth book in the DC Series, following the three ladies Sherise, Erica, and Billie. The story focused more on Billie and developing her story-line. While the other story-lines of Erica and Sherise were peripheral. Billie now has the man of her dreams, but a […]

I’m Reading…Choir Director 2

I love Carl Weber! This book has almost every genre rolled into one. The book did start off slow but as soon as hit it’s stride it went very quickly. Carl Weber is very good at suspenseful and he placed so many red herrings throughout to throw the reader off the trail. I was completely […]

I’m Reading…Family Business 3

Let me just say I really love Carl Weber’s stories; however, this book was so disappointing. I am not sure if it was having a co-author or not. Carl Weber on his own is amazing. But, when there is a co-author in the mix, it doesn’t go well all the time. The first book in the […]

I’m Reading..The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat

As they two characters progressed in the age the story started to pick up steam. Sarah Grimke is the ugly-duckling of the Grimke family, slaveholders in the […]

I’m Reading…To Paris with Love

To Paris with Love written by Carl Weber is the third book in the Duncan Family Business novels. I have to admit Carl Weber is my guilty pleasure. He writes urban African American fiction that usually focuses on money, sex, and family relations. I enjoy Carl Weber,  he can write from the female and male […]

I’m Reading…Black Like Me

The most amazing, awe-inspiring book I have ever read. A white man literally takes “walking a mile someone’s shoes” seriously. John Griffin transforms into a Black man in 1959. In 1959, at the height of segregation and Jim Crow. He tours the South, the Deep South and experience blind hatred for the pigmentation of skin […]
